Football: Holywell Town call off match due to Welsh Euro 2012 qualifier

HOLYWELL Town will be without a fixture this weekend after successfully applying to the Football Association of Wales for dispensation to postpone their game to allow members of the squad to head to the Liberty Stadium in Swansea for Wales’ Euro 2012 qualifier tomorrow against Switzerland.

It means their scheduled home game with Barmouth and Dyffryn will be moved to a new date later in the season.

It is perhaps a pity as they could have built on their tremendous 4-0 win over Caernarfon Wanderers last Saturday in Division One of the Welsh Alliance.

The Wellmen didn’t open the scoring until 10 minutes into the second half when Sam Jones struck.

Two minutes later Wayne Edwards doubled the lead and he went on to complete a hat-trick.

In Division Two GREENFIELD replicated that performance, winning 4-0 at home to Gaerwen.

Sam Watson, Lee Taylor, Keith Ainsworth and Wayne Bayliss all found the net for the hosts.

HALKYN UNITED were not so dominant however.

They fell 4-2 at home to Blaenau Ffestiniog.

Halkyn were 2-0 down when they began to fight back, Jamie King scoring in the 65th minute.

Another goal for the visitors came on 85 minutes and the final nail was driven in on 87 before Andy Butler slotted home a Halkyn penalty.
