COLWYN Bay manager Craig Hogg was thrilled with his side after secured a 4-2 home win over Chasetown.

The Seagulls picked up a morale-boosting victory to halt their recent slide, and the Evo-Stik Northern Premier League Division One West outfit now sit in 12th spot ahead of their trip to Droylsden on Saturday (3pm).

Hogg, said: ‘We are delighted with the points and the overall performance, in what were very testing weather conditions against a very difficult opponent today.

“Chasetown are a dangerous outfit and asked some searching questions of us, but I felt we came up with the answers and were worthy of the points come full time.

“I felt for the majority of the game we were in control of both possession and territory and our play was really quite positive.

“But it’s still a real concern that we appear to keep having those little spells in games were we cause our own problems, make unforced errors and present ourselves with obstacles to overcome or hills to climb - because of this we were rightly 2-1 down at one point in play.

“However we showed tremendous character, much resolve and carried on in believing in our playing philosophy, this helped us massively to go on and win the game in the end

“Craig Pritchard and Ash Woods have had an excellent week of training and both capped it off with superb display’s today and their first goals for the club, I’m delighted for both.”

Bay went into the break a goal to the good thanks to Pritchard’s first competitive goal for the club on 43 minutes, but they fell behind after the break courtesy of efforts from Callum Cockerill Mollet and Muzzy Nduna.

This provoked a strong response from the hosts, who got back on level terms through a Josh Brizell penalty on 71 minutes, and they got their noses in front yet again soon after when Lass Mendes produced a stunning effort through the goalkeeper’s legs.

Ashley Woods notched his first effort for the Seagulls to confirm their first win in nine after 77 minutes.
