Tim ChannonClub News

COLWYN BAY Youth team came from 0-3 down to beat Llandudno Athletic 5-4 in a thrilling North Wales Junior Cup game.

A dreadful start at The Oval saw the Bay three down inside the first nine minutes, but after Ben Roberts had pulled a goal back before half-time, two goals in ten minutes by Davey Algieri, including a penalty, levelled the scores early in the second half as Colwyn Bay started to dominate.

Both sides missed penalties in the second half, but 17-year-old Pierce Jones, who is just coming back from a double fracture of the ankle,  edged Colwyn Bay 4-3 ahead and although Llandudno came back to equalise, skipper Charlie Jones hit the winner following an Algieri free kick ten minutes from the end to put the Seagulls into the next round.
