ABERGELE lost ground at the Vale of Clwyd ad Conwy League Premier Division summit after they were held to a 1-1 draw at Llanelwy Athletic.

The title contenders had to settle for a share of the spoils against the newly promoted side, leaving them five points behind early pacesetters Rhuddlan Town with a game in hand.

The visitors made their presence felt throughout the first period and went into the break a goal to the good when a neat passage of play on 39 minutes presented a chance to Jack Lloyd, who made no mistake with the finish to break the deadlock.

After the interval saw the home side grow more into the contest and they got themselves back on level terms when Ste Kirk produced a fine effort on 56 minutes to claim a valuable point.

Llansannan bounced back from their heavy loss last weekend at the earliest opportunity with a resounding 3-0 home triumph over Meliden.

A scoreless first half was brought to life after the interval, with Euros Lloyd opening the scoring with a well-timed finish on 50 minutes.

Kieran Kendrick doubled the hosts advantage with 83 on the clock, and Tom Lewis’ men sealed the three points on 87 when Jac Glover hit the target.

Llanfairfechan Town’s fine run of form continued thanks to an emphatic 4-0 victory at Rhos United.

An Ellis Jones effort on 20 minutes gave the away side a slender cushion heading into the break, with Iwan Jones, James Corey and Sion Devereux all netting in the second period to complete the rout.

The only other game of the weekend saw Robyn Hughes fire a late winner on 88 minutes for Bro Cernyw in their 1-0 success at Y Glannau.
