THE North Football Association are back on top of Vale of Clwyd and Conwy League Division One despite being held to a 2-2 draw at Penrhyn Bay Dragons.

A fine comeback from the hosts saw them secure a share of the spoils against the championship contenders, who now sit a solitary point above Llysfaen having played a game more than their title rivals.

The visitors got off to an imposing start and went ahead on nine minutes when a neat passage of play was finished off impressively by Jordan Taylor.

Things got even better for the away side midway through the half when prolific forward Taylor was presented with another chance on 25 minutes, which he duly despatched to increase their advantage.

The Dragons’ showed signs of life towards the end of the first period and they were rewarded for their improved tempo on 41 minutes when Solomon Dickens found the net to half the deficit going into the break.

After the interval saw both sides spurn good opportunities during a hugely entertaining 45 minutes, but the crucial moment of the half arrived with 82 on the clock as Tom Parry pounced to level proceedings and ensure both sides had something to show for their efforts.

Steve Collins was the star of the show as Llandudno Amateurs Reserves moved up to third with a 4-1 home victory over Henllan.

The talented player was at the top of his game throughout on his way to a hat trick, with Paul Vinall also on target for the improving hosts. Shaun Edwards opened the scoring for the visitors on 22 minutes.
