COLWYN BAY ended their home campaign with a 5-0 victory over bottom side Llanraeadr YM to stay within a point of third-placed Guilsfield.

James Kirby netted his 21st goal of the campaign with a shot from distance which beat Llan keeper James Hayns despite his best efforts to give the Seagulls a 1-0 half-time lead after what had been a pretty even first half.

Bay ran away with the game in the second half with further goals from skipper Tom McCready (61), his first in 12 games, Craig Lindfield (66) – who was named the Pen-y-Bryn man of the match, Sam Jones (70) and a first goal since rejoining the club for substitute Ash Woods (87) with a fine volley on the turn.

Sam Downey made a welcome return to the first team, coming on as a second half substitute.

It was a commanding victory with relatively little riding on the game and manager Steve Jones said: “The lads attitude was again first class.

“Last week I thought everybody was fantastic and today was just the same.

“First half we were a little bit sloppy, but the second half was so much better, we dominated and thoroughly deserved the 5-0 win.”

The manager was pleased to see five different players on the schoresheet, but added: ” That comes down to hard work. It is what we want and what we are trying build going into next season.”

COLWYN BAY: Andy Coughlin, Stefan Edwards, Cai Owen, Sam Jones (Macsen Rhys-Williams 78), Tom McCready (c), Kieran Evans (Ashley Woods 63), Dan Parry-Jones (Jordan Carrington 71), Craig Lindfield, Kristian Platt, Ryan Edwards (Sam Downey 49), James Kirby.
