THE Seagulls were in seventh heaven as they won 7-1 away to Cefn Druids and went three points clear at the top of the JD Cymru League table.

James Kirby scored twice, but pick of the goals was a 40 yard screamer from Tommy Creamer in the second half, after Cen Druids had Tom Reilly sent off for a second yellow card.

The Bay made a great start and were 1-0 up inside three minutes when Kirby back-heeled the ball into the net from close range following a Tom McCready corner.

Cefn Druids equalised on 17 minutes with shot from distance by Joshua Roseberry-Beamond following a poor clearance from Ryan Woods, but two goals in two minutes quickly put the Bay back in control.

Stefan Edwards scored against his former club with a right-footed shot in off the post from the edge of the area and then Kirby headed home from a great cross by Cai Owen to make it 3-1.

Joe Williams fired home a fourth after a good move involving Tom McCready and Cai Owen and McCready was close to adding a fifth before half-time with a free kick narrowly wide of the post and a shot from distance that just cleared the bar.

The Bay made changes at the interval with Dylan Allshorn and Sam Downey coming on for Lewis Sirrell and Kristian Platt, with Guto Williams and Sam Hart moving into centre of defence, and it took a little while for Bay to adjust to the new formation.

Stef Edwards shot over the bar from a promising position, but after Reilly’s dismissal, for a late tackle on Cai Owen, Tom Creamer extended Bay’s lead on 70 minutes with that screamer and after three more substitutions, with Jamie Cumming coming on for his debut, the Seagulls added two more goals in the closing minutes,

Dylan Allshorn scored from the penalty spot after late tackle on Matty Hill, and then Hill scored from a Cumming cross.

Seagulls boss Steve Evans said afterwards: “I thought some of the football we played was very good.

“We started well, scored the early goal, but then they were the better team for five or 10 minutes and scored an unbelievable goal.

“After that we got to grips with the game and were well worth the three points.”

On the five second half substitutions, Steve added: “When you look at the lads who didn’t start the game, the creativity, the pace and the skill I was able to bring off the bench was different class.

“I thought the professionalism from everybody to a man was first class, but a special mention to Tommy Creamer. To score goal like that on the volley from 40 or 50 yards was unbelievable and a great little bit of skill.

“But everybody contributed. Some of the free-flowing football we played was there to see, but credit for that is down to the hard work the players put in.

“We were in yesterday to prepare because we had the weekend off. I’m asking a lot of the players and they are delivering.

“We’ve just got to take each game as it comes, keep doing the right things and see where it takes us.”
