CONWY Borough concluded their Huws Gray Alliance season with a dramatic 3-2 loss at Penrhyncoch.

The Tangerines held a slender advantage heading into the closing stages before a thrilling finish that saw them conceded twice in the final eight minutes, enabling the Roosters to avoid relegation and condemn Holywell Town and Denbigh Town to the drop.

The home side came out of the blocks flying and almost went ahead earlier on when Elian Evans spurned an opportunity, with prolific forward Corrig McGonigle blazing an effort over the bar after a neat passage of play on 16 minutes.

A sensational save from Leroy Jenkins denied Iolo Hughes an opener for the visitors on 24 minutes, and Jonathan Evans missed a glorious chance for the home side soon after when he failed to find the net in a one-on-one situation with 27 on the clock.

Cledan Davies and Evans both went close for the hosts shortly before the break, but they finally got their noses in front to open a frantic second half when Davies prodded into the net from close range on 61 minutes.

This provoked a strong response from the visitors, who got themselves back on level terms on 67 minutes when strike Dean Seager headed in a McGonigle corner, and they took the lead with 81 gone thanks to a superb looping effort from the in-form Cory Williams.

The home side remained undeterred in their bid to avoid the drop, and they equalised once again immediately following the restart when Evans produced a powerful volley from a Davies cross with eight minutes remaining.

Things went from bad to worse for the Tangerines on 86 minutes when a defensive mix-up inside the box presented a chance to Josh Shaw, and he made no mistake with the finish to secure safety and condemn the visitors to a final day defeat.

Borough end their first season back at second tier level in 11th position.
