Match Report

ALEX DOWNES came off the bench to hit the match winner with his 12th goal of the season in a 2-1 success at Chirk AAA as the Seagulls extended their winning league run to 18 games.

It wasn’t pretty at times against a side battling to retain their JD Cymru North status, but in the end it was another three points in Bay’s chase for the title.

They got a great start with a goal after only five minutes when Craig Lindfield got on the end of a Jamie Cumming cross, but much of the rest of the first half was pretty even and Chirk equalised on 35 minutes with a good finish by Rhys Edwards.

Downes came on for the second half and got the winner just after the hour.

Home keeper Mark Richards made a great save from a Lindfield header, but from the corner Downes scored from close range at the far post.

Stef Edwards put a good chance over the bar, but chances were few and far between and in the end the Bay were happy to hold on for a narrow win – although a late injury which forced Alex Downes to be substituted will be a concern for the manager.

New signing Jack Crichton made his debut in goal and Lewis Sirrell played his 50th game for the Bay.
