LLYSFAEN turned up the head on Vale of Clwyd and Conwy League Division One leaders the North Football Association with a 3-1 triumph at Betws-y-Coed.

The title hopefuls moved to within two points of the long-time pacesetters having played the same amount of games after the come-from-behind victory, which saw them go behind on 20 minutes when a Sam Llewelyn effort gave the home side a shock advantage.

This provoked a strong response from the visitors, who levelled proceedings just before the break when Reece Kearney broke clear and finished well, and this was swiftly followed by another that came courtesy of Sean Sheridan in first half stoppage time to put them ahead.

After the interval saw the away side withstand a heavy onslaught from the hosts as they looked to find a route back into the tie, but they held firm and finally clinched three points late on when a quick breakaway on 88 minutes presented a chance to Jake Reynolds, who remained calm to put away the opportunity and round off the scoring.

Penrhyn Bay Dragons finally kickstarted their campaign with a late 2-1 victory at Llandudno Amateurs Reserves.

Solomon Dickens gave the away side the lead on 38 minutes before they were pegged back through a Sean Sharp with 84 on the clock, but the Dragons’ claimed their first win of the season on 85 when Morgan Groome decided the clash.

Elliot Croston and Robin Roberts were in ruthless form for Llanfairfechan Town Reserves during their home game against Machno United, with both hitting a treble apiece in a convincing 7-2 success.
