LLANDUDNO assistant Mark Cowan dedicated their pivotal 3-1 home win over Carmarthen Town to manager Iwan Williams.

The JD Welsh Premier League side secured their second win in three contests to further boost their survival hopes, and they are now just seven points away from safety ahead of their trip to Cardiff Met on Saturday (2.30pm).

Williams was unable to attend the game due to issues with his ill father, but Cowan stated “this one was for him” in what was a very impressive performance from his resurgent side.

He said: “The win was thoroughly deserved. We went two ahead and scored the second at a good time, but we didn’t want to sit back and invite pressure as we have every faith in the players despite the position we are in.

“Carmarthen had a go in the final stages but we held firm and got over the line. It is a testament to the gaffer as this is the environment he has created. He has always been positive with the players and this is dedicated to him.

“It has been a stressful week for him with personal issues away from football, but he’s planned everything from training to team selection and it was just unfortunate he could not be here to celebrate with the fans as you could sense the relief at the final whistle.

“Nobody deserves it more than Iwan and the players to a man were immense. The performances have been good and we have not been playing like a team at the foot of the table. That is two wins out of three now and two defeats in our last eight, we just haven’t been able to turn some of them into wins but the aim going forward is to kick on and I think we can do that.”

A first half brace from the in-form George Harry gave Tudno a comfortable cushion at the interval, and The New Saints loan star Ben George notched a third on the hour mark to secure the three points.
