LLANGEFNI Town moved up to second in the Lock Stock Welsh Alliance Division One standings with a thumping 8-1 victory at St Asaph City.

Chris Roberts’ side are now six points behind current pacesetters Llandudno Albion following their recent success, but they crucially have six games in hand on their championship rivals during what is going to be a frantic run-in.

Things got off to a great start for the away side as Matthew Jones hit two in the first 15 minutes, with a brace from in-form striker Liam Morris on 37 and 40 giving Cefni a comfortable cushion.

There was still time for the visitors to net once more before the break, and once again it was Morris who was the beneficiary of some neat build-up play to seal his hat-trick.

The home side started the second period well and notched a consolation through Josh Brown on 55 minutes, but this joy proved to be short-lived as Town struck on 57 when Harry Galeotti broke clear and produced a composed finish.

Jones capped off an excellent individual display with a treble of his own with 73 on the clock, and Sean Pritchard prodded home from close range late on after reacting first to a penalty miss with three minutes remaining to round off the scoring.

Llanrug United picked up a valuable point on their travels with a 2-2 draw at Mynydd Llandegai.

James Phillips’ opener for the away side was cancelled out through a Matthew Smith strike soon after, with both sides trading goals after the break when Pen Parker and Llion Jones hit the target during the stalemate.

Nantlle Vale also claimed a point on home soil after a late leveller in their 1-1 draw against Llanberis.

Ifan Mansour gave the away side an early advantage before an own goal in the closing stages ensured both sides had something to show for their efforts.
