RHUDDLAN Town moved six points clear at the Vale of Clwyd and Conwy League Premier Division summit with a thumping 7-0 home rout over Cerrigydrudion.

The championship hopefuls were at their ruthless best to extend and impressive unbeaten league record to 12 games, putting them in pole position to secure the crown.

Town can strike another telling blow in their quest for the title at Llanfairfechan Town on Saturday, who are seven points behind with two games in hand.

Manager Wayne Hughes, said: “I thought we absolutely dominated the game from start to finish played some outstanding football on a very bobbled pitch.

“Absolutely delighted with the score given we had a lot of players missing but the lads who came back into the starting line up all had great games.

“To see the subs come off the bench and score goals showed the depth we have in the squad this season, really can’t wait for next week’s game against Llanfairfechan Town.”

A strong start from the visitors saw them go ahead on 16 minutes through a Matty Rees strike, and the same player was on hand to double their advantage soon after with 18 on the clock.

Rees’ prolific first half brought another to seal his hat-trick in stoppage time, and the away side continued this trend after the break with a Jordan Frazer attempt on 55 minutes sealing another three points.

Another impressive spell of dominance on 75 minutes saw Ian Davenport hit the target, and Zak Hughes also got in on the act late on with a well-taken opportunity with nine remaining.

There was still time for the hosts to boost their goal difference further, with Davenport firing in his second of the afternoon on 88 minutes to round off the scoring.
