RHUDDLAN Town turned in another impressive display to come away from their trip to Llansannan with a creditable 2-2 draw.

Wayne Hughes’ side demonstrated tremendous character to come from two-down in the first half to claim a share of the spoils against a side that is expected to go very close to the title at the end of the campaign.

The Town boss, said: “I am massively proud of the lads.

“We had eight players missing and it showed early on in the game. The second half is what we are all about, great fitness levels in the heat and the passing also got better as the game went on.

“The team spirit shown was first class and this is another massive confidence boost for everyone against a good side.”

Things looked bleak for the visitors early on as Tom Lewis’ men broke the deadlock on 12 minutes courtesy of a penalty from Leon Gierke, and the veteran striker was the difference-maker once again soon after thanks to a superb strike that double the hosts advantage with 18 gone.

Credit to the away side, they raised the tempo considerably following the interval ad got themselves back into the game on 54 minutes when Ian Davenport took advantage of the space afforded to him to reduce the arrears.

It proved to be a prolific spell in the game for Davenport, who despatched another chance on 58 minutes to level proceedings and ensure that both sides had something to show from an entertaining affair.

Meliden picked up their first win of the new season with an eye-catching 2-0 home triumph over Llanfairfechan Town.

The home side seized the initiative in the first period when Luke Astley hit the target on 23 minutes, and they sealed a valuable three points in the second half when a fine team move was finished off by Elliot Lloyd with 80 on the clock.

A solitary effort from Jordan Dixon was enough for Llandudno Athletic in their 1-0 success at Rhos United, with Cerrigydrudion and Y Glannau sharing the spoils in a 1-1 stalemate.
