THE Seagulls couldn’t find a way past man of the match goalkeeper Steve Sinclair as they were held to a 0-0 draw by Llangefni Town in front of a crowd of 680.
Sinclair made a string of saves, including stand-out stops from Sam Jones and James Kirby, to earn his side a point – although the Bay were unlucky to hit the bar with a header in added time.
Manager Steve Evans gave all three new signings (Stef Edwards, Dan Parry-Jones and Craig Lindfield) a debut, but skipper Tom McCready was a late withdrawal from the planned starting line-up.
The Bay dominated the first half but struggled to create too many clear cut chances against a determined and hard-working Llangefni defence.
Lewis Sirrell and Sam Jones (twice) both had efforts saved by the keeper while Parry-Jones was wide with a volley and Linfield and Sirrell were also off target before half-time.
It was 48 minutes before Llangefni had their first shot at goal, Andy Coughlin saving Josh Williams’ effort
Sam Jones forced a good save from Sinclair before the keeper denied Jones again when he was through on goal.
Another top save foiled James Kirby and although the keeper then spilled a driven shot from Sirrell, he was able to gather the ball at the second attempt before a Bay player could capitalise.
A frustrating day for Colwyn Bay, and a chance missed to close the gap on the top three with Guilsfield losing for the first time.
