PENMAENMAWR Phoenix remain top of the Lock Stock Welsh Alliance Division Two standings thanks to a 2-0 triumph at Llandudno Junction.

The title hopefuls produced a resolute display to emerge with three points despite a spirited effort from the Railwaymen throughout, laving them ahead of Gwalchmai on goal difference at the summit with a game in hand.

A tense affair throughout saw both sides spurn good opportunities, but the first telling moment of the game arrived on 80 minutes when former Junction standout Joel Hewitt came back to haunt his old club with a superb strike to break the deadlock.

The home side threw everything at their opponents in the closing stages in pursuit of salving something from the clash, but they were undone again on 85 minutes when a quick break presented an opportunity to Dan Williams, who made no mistake with the finish to complete the scoring and secure another three points for Martyn Jones’ side.

Phoenix received more good news this week after they confirmed the return of prolific striker Mike Lundstram to boost their attacking options.

The forward has enjoyed a standout career at various clubs throughout the region, with spells at Denbigh Town and Glantraeth bringing some significant success.

He joined Phoenix for the first-time last season to pair with son Benn, who now plays for Bangor 1876, before getting another chance at second-tier football at Llangefni Town earlier this season.

Things did not go according to plan at Cae Bob Parry for Lundstram, who has now opted to re-join the club and aid their pursuit of silverware this term.
