Football: Holywell Town keep chasing pack at bay with victory

HOLYWELL Town remain three points clear at the top of the Welsh Alliance Division One after defeating Llanrwst United 4-2.

John Hazelden gave the Wellmen the lead on 36 minutes but on the stroke of half-time the home side levelled.

Two minutes after the interval Town led again through Tony Roebuck, Steve Thomas extended their advantage in the 49th minute and after another United goal, Wayne Edwards sealed it with five minutes remaining.

Holywell’s lead at the top is not comfortable however. While nearest rivals Caernarfon Town have played three games more than the Wellmen, back in third Holyhead Hotspur hold two games in hand which if won could see them replace Holywell.

Will Higginson’s goal for HALKYN UNITED in the 89th minute came too late to spark a comeback as visiting Penmaenmawr Phoenix claimed a 2-1 win in Division Two which left United rock bottom of the table.

CONNAH’S QUAY TOWN continue to struggle after they suffered a 2-0 away defeat at Llandyrnog United.

Quay remain third from bottom.

GREENFIELD drew 2-2 with Amlwch to remain in the safe among the top clubs.
