LLANFAIRFECHAN Town Reserves cemented their place in third thanks to a 5-1 triumph at Henllan.

The Vale of Clwyd and Conwy League Division One side made light work of their first outing following the Christmas break, with prolific forward Elliot Croston turning in a sensational individual display to lead his side to glory.

Croston was at his clinical best throughout the one-sided affair, netting no fewer than four times, and Jack Paul Jones also found the target for the visitors to cancel out a solitary home effort from Shaun Edwards.

Llandudno Amateurs Reserves’ recent resurgence continued with a 3-2 home win over Machno United.

A two-goal salvo either side of half time from Steve Collins did the majority of the damage, with Sean Sharp also finding the net for the fourth-placed outfit.

Penrhyn Bay Dragons surged into sixth position as they came from behind to seal a 6-4 win at basement dwellers Rhyl All Stars.

The contest was evenly poised at the break as Shane Roberts, Adam Cassidy, Luke Jones and Matty Katsouris traded goals at either end during an enthralling first 45 minutes.

The home side managed to take the lead on the hour mark with Cassidy’s second of the afternoon that was quickly cancelled out by Jones’ brace on 62, and quick-fire efforts from Osian Jones and Solomon Ricketts soon after gave the visitors the lead for the first time.

Mathew Parry’s superb strike gave the hosts a chance of salvaging something late on, but Tom Parry put the result beyond all doubt with five remaining.
