RHUDDLAN Town struck yet another blow in their quest for the Vale of Clwyd and Conwy League Premier Division title with a 2-0 home success over Abergele.

The long-time leaders are now 14 league games unbeaten to stretch their cushion at the summit to nine points over Gele with a game in hand ahead of their trip to an improving Meliden side on Saturday.

Manager Wayne Hughes, said: “A fantastic win puts us as massive favourites for the title.

“It was a great result for the lads with us missing six players from last week’s win against Llanfairfechan Town, and myself missing the game due to weeding venue shopping.

“All credit goes to Keiran Evans who took the team and all the lads. Full debuts for Ethan Taylor and Matty Roberts who both did very well.

“Really delighted with the result and roll on next week.”

The home side got off to the best possible start when a sensational strike from Matty Rees from just outside the area found its way into the top corner with just two on the clock.

Gele responded well to the early setback and almost levelled matters on the quarter hour mark when an opportunity rattled the post, with blustery conditions making things difficult for both sides throughout the first period.

After the break saw the deciding moment arrive on 75 minutes when prolific forward Jordan Bellham produced some incredible approach play to present a chance to Ian Davenport, who demonstrated tremendous composure to double their advantage and round off the scoring.

There are still two considerable threats for the championship waiting in the wings, with Llanfairfechan Town 13 points adrift and Llansannan 15 behind, both with three games in hand on Hughes’ side.

Town have won 12 and drawn two of their 14 games so far this term, scoring 66 at an average of 4.7 and conceding 21.
