HOLYHEAD Hotspur manager Darren Garmey could not hide his disappointment as they were beaten 5-1 by Airbus Broughton in the Huws Gray Cup final.

The Holy Islanders were unable to thwart the double-winning Wingmakers at the home of Conwy Borough FC, with the club now preparing for life in the third tier following their relegation from the Huws Gray Alliance.

Garmey, said: “Obviously gutted with the result but we have to appreciate just how good Airbus are, possibly the best side I’ve seen in the Cymru Alliance.

“I have a great bunch of lads and we will bounce back from all the disappointments of this season.”

The HGA champions got off to the best possible start when James Hooper cut in from the left and smashed an effort into the bottom corner early on, but this provoked a strong response from Spurs’ and they were level after the interval when Chris Jones’ towering header found its way past Dave Roberts.

Airbus went ahead again immediately following the restart when Hooper managed to notch his second of the final when he latched on to a Steve Tomassen long throw, and they double their advantage when prolific striker Asa Hamilton headed in a delivery at the far post.

Things went from bad-to-worse for Garmey’s side when goalkeeper Carl Jones was shown a red card for a cynical foul on Lewis Buckley, and the Wingmakes’ sealed their second piece of silverware when late goals from Ryan Edwards and Academy member Harvey Ellis rounded off the scoring.
