DENBIGH Development got their Vale of Clwyd and Conwy League Division One campaign off to the best possible start with a 4-2 home win over Rhyl All Stars.

New manager Craig Morris saw his side come from two-down to secure three points in their opening fixture, but the visitors got off on the front foot and went ahead on the quarter hour mark when Craig Brophy converted a chance.

This was followed by another that came courtesy of Jacob Jones on 34 minutes to double their advantage, but the home side got themselves back into the tie just before the break when Alfie Harrison finished well with 37 on the clock.

After the interval saw the hosts level matters courtesy of a sensational effort from Liam Nash on 50 minutes, and the game was settled by a quick-fire brace from John Dickson on 75 and 82 to round off the scoring.

Northern Football Association marked their first ever competitive fixture with a resounding 5-0 home rout over Llandudno Amateurs Reserves.

Rhidian Williams, Josh Lycett, Dion Lloyd and Harry Kirkham all managed to converted opportunities during the contest, with a pair of second half own goals compounding the visitors’ misery following their early opener from Ellis Payne Evans on seven minutes.
