LLANRWST United’s Barritt Cup journey ended with a 3-1 loss at in-form Holyhead Hotspur.

The Rwsters’ agreed to move the tie to The New Stadium following significant flood damage at their Gwydir Park base, which has left much of the ground underwater after torrential rain and winds decimated the region in recent weeks.

Leighton Griffiths’ side put up a good fight against the Lock Stock Welsh Alliance Division One leaders before eventually coming up short, but they can take plenty of heart from their latest showing ahead of a busy run-in that could end with the club securing a top three finish.

The Holy Islanders’ began the contest on the front foot and went ahead on the quarter hour mark when midfielder Kenleigh Owen diverted an effort into the net to open the scoring.

United managed to weather some significant pressure on a blustering Anglesey afternoon throughout the remainder of the first half, but they were undone again moments after the interval as Alex Jones found some space and finished well with 47 on the clock.

Credit to the visitors, who bounced back well following the setback and got themselves back into the game on 53 minutes when Leon Doran continued his excellent season in front of goal with another well-taken strike to half the deficit.

United threw caution to the wind in the closing stages in pursuit of a leveller and they fell victim to a quick counter attack on 83 minutes that ended with Owen turning in his second of the afternoon to eventually decide an entertaining affair.
