ST ASAPH City manager Daniel Brewerton was pleased with what he saw from his side following their 3-3 draw at Penrhyndeudraeth.

The Saints got another Lock Stock Welsh Alliance Division One point on the board after another encouraging display in difficult conditions, leaving them in 12th spot in the standings ahead of their trip to Blaenau Ffestiniog Amateurs on Saturday.

Brewerton, said: “I though the lads played well, first half we played some good football, we controlled the pace of the game and were well deserving of the early lead.

“We started well second half after holding a lead, but Pen won a free kick in a dangerous area and what seemed to be a breach of the new rules was ignored and they took advantage.

“We managed to regroup and created plenty of good opportunities to score and had a strong penalty appeal turned down, and we put them under a lot of pressure late on but couldn’t get the winning goal we probably deserved.”

A strong start from the visitors saw them go ahead on 13 minutes when Corey Brewerton made some space for himself in the box before steering the chance into the corner, but a defensive lapse in concentration saw Pen level matters through Steve Jones with 18 on the clock.

Brewerton was proving influential throughout the first period and he went from scorer to provider on 29 minutes when he sent Tom McDougall in on goal, and the ex-Prestatyn Sports man made no mistake with the finish to give the Saints’ a slender cushion at the interval.

After the break saw Iwan Thomas restore parity to the score on 54 minutes when a controversial free kick found its way into the net, and they gained the upper hand for the first time in the contest courtesy of a Tom Smith strike with 68 gone.

City showed their fighting spirit to secure a share of the spoils on 84 minutes when a thunderous challenge from Mikey Walsh saw the ball fall into the path of Brewerton, who despatched his second of the afternoon to round off the scoring.
