COLWYN Bay assistant manager Mark Orme praised the attitude of his players after they secured a 3-2 victory at Llanfair United.

The Seagulls’ were made to sweat following a late rally from the JD Cymru North basement dwellers before eventually emerging with the win, enhancing their position in third ahead of a home game against Penrhyncoch this Saturday.

Orme, said: “Very pleased with the first 70 minutes of the game. We managed the difficult conditions well and played some good stuff at times.

“The front three of Mitch Bryant, Toby Jones and Callum Parry were excellent and all deserving of their goals. If anything, we should have been further ahead with a couple of good chances missed.

“Credit to Llanfair though they had a right go at us in the last 20 minutes and from our perspective made it more nervous than it needed to be.

“We have to be better at managing games as we have let teams back in from commanding positions on a couple of occasions now and it just comes down to basic errors which we need to iron out quickly.

“Overall though we have to be pleased with six points out of six from two tough trips to Mid Wales and I can’t fault the attitude and application of the players.

“It’s important we show that again next week in what will be another tough game against Penrhyncoch.”

The away side got their noses in front just after the half hour mark when Toby Jones finally broke his duck since arriving from Llandudno this summer with a close-range finish.

Callum Parry, a January signing from Llanrwst United, doubled their advantage in first half stoppage time after good work from strike partner Mitch Bryant to notch his first goal in Bay colours.

After the break saw the visitors increase their lead further when Bryant was sent through on goal and finished well on 54 minutes, and Parry almost despatched his second of the afternoon as his powerful effort rattled the bar with 62 on the clock.

An own goal on 70 minutes gave United some life, and they cut the deficit further a minute from time thanks to a Gethin Jones attempt.
