LLANDUDNO Albion manager Darren Jones lauded his side and the travelling support after they secured an FAW Trophy final berth.

The Lock Stock Welsh Alliance Division One side marked the biggest game in their short history by emerging victorious via a penalty shootout over third-tier rivals Holyhead Hotspur ro reach the showcase.

Albion will now clash with Penydarren later in the season in the hope of securing the prestigious national competition.

Jones, said: “I thought the lads were superb.

“The first 15 to 20 minutes we got a little bit of stage fright and didn’t start as well as we could of done and Holyhead capitalised on it scoring their goal.

“After we settled down and grew into the game, I felt we were the better team but they were always a threat.

“We created some real good opportunities and their keeper made some brilliant saves, but the equaliser was nothing less than we deserved.

“Holyhead could have pinched it right at the end of extra time, but I think overall the end result was the right one.”

Jones also paid special tribute to the travelling Albion supporters, who made the long trek to Bala Town for an early kick-off and were rewarded with a memorable afternoon.

“The supporters that travelled with us were fantastic and really got behind the lads, so I would like to give a special mention and thanks to them,” he added.
