THE Northern Football Association enhanced their perfect Vale of Clwyd League Division One start with a thrilling 5-3 victory at Penrhyn Bay Dragons.

The newly formed club made it four wins from as many contests during a pulsating clash, with efforts from Mathew Robinson, Paul Jones, Daniel Williams, Jordan Taylor and Nathan Griffiths enough to seal three points that keeps them five points clear in the early standings.

Llanfairfechan Town Reserves now occupy second position following an eye-catching 8-0 home rout over Rhyl All Stars.

Two goals in the opening 20 minutes Elliot Croston gave the hosts an early advantage, and Harry Croston extended their cushion after the break with 47 on the clock.

An own goal all-but secured success for the title challengers after 50 minutes of play, with Elliot and Harry Croston both adding to their tally throughout the remainder of the second period to end the contest with a hat-trick apiece.

The Croston connection continued when Tom also found the net with a neat finish on 71 minutes.

Llandudno Amateurs Reserves fought back on two occasions to secure a share of the spoils in their 2-2 draw at Llysfaen.

The home side went ahead twice during the game thanks to goals from Alec Jones and Nathan Russell, but Sean Sharp and Aidan Bell, the latter firing a leveller two minutes from time, was enough to ensure both sides had something to show from an entertaining affair.

A two-goal salvo from Alec Thomas and a solitary Liam Davies effort was enough to give Henllan a 3-1 home win over Machno United, with Jo Owen and Matt Latham on target for Betws-y-Coed in their 2-1 victory over Denbigh Development.
