TWO goals from new signing Cory Williams was not enough for Llandudno to secure victory in their 2-2 draw at Llanfair United.

The recent acquisition from Conwy Borough made an instant impression on his first start for the club, but Tudno were once again unable to hold onto a lead in the second period and had to settle for a share of the spoils.

Matthew Jones’ side occupy tenth position in JD Cymru North as they prepare to welcome Bangor City to Maesdu Park on Friday evening.

The home side almost went ahead on 14 minutes when a long-range attempt from Paul Griffiths flew inches over with Shaun Pearson beaten, and this proved telling during the opening exchanges as a quick break on 19 saw Williams go through on goal.

The forward rounded United keeper Mark Richards before firing into an empty net to open the scoring for his first goal in Tudno colours.

After the break saw the hosts come out with a renewed sense of purpose and they levelled proceedings on 48 minutes through a sensational strike from Ryan McVeagh, who diverted a Griffiths delivery into the top corner.

Griffiths came within a whisker of giving his side the lead for the first time on 50 minutes when his powerful shot came back off the cross bar, and Gethin Jones flashed an effort wide soon after during a good spell of pressure from United.

Their inefficiency in front of goal cost them on 72 minutes when a defensive mistake gifted another chance to Williams, who kept his cool to turn in his second of the afternoon and put the visitors ahead for a second time.

This joy proved to be fleeting as the home side restored parity to the score-line straight from the kick-off thanks to a Karl Seliaerts drive from a tight angle that found its way past Pearson.

Williams almost decided matters on 80 minutes in pursuit of his hat trick, but his latest attempt was thwarted by Richards to enable both sides to come away with a point.
