Bay deserved a point: Hopley

chrisFirst Team

Captain Rob Hopley says Colwyn Bay were disappointed not to have come away from Skrill North leaders Hednesford Town with a point. 

After trailing 2-0 at the interval, a much improved second half saw the Bay pull a goal back through Marc Williams’ first goal for the club. 

Bay pressed for an equaliser with Williams having a header cleared off the line and a headed effort by Hopley (pictured) striking the crossbar but Hednesford held out for a 2-1 win.

“The lads were really disappointed in the dressing room that we hadn’t got something out of the game,” Hopley told Tim Channon. 

“Hednesford have not lost at home since March and not many teams will go there and play as well as we did in the second half. 

“We deserved a point and If we’d played better in the first half I think we could even have won it.”

Meanwhile forward Steve Connor has been released and the 24-year-old is returning to Conwy Borough after failing to recapture his good pre-season form following injury.
