Llandudno Begin Campaign With Impressive Victory Over Newtown
Llandudno began their development league campaign with a fine 6-0 win over Newtown.
First team players Paddy Rutter and Gabriel Kubwelo were handed starts in order to gain match fitness, and Osian Jones led the line in the absence of Owain Jones.
The game started fairly evenly, with the deadlock being broken after 20 minutes with good work by Luke Jones. It was 2-0 shortly after after Iwan Jones found space and managed to get a shot away,deflected off the centre back and looping over the keeper. After a good press from the Llandudno forward line forced an error, Osian Jones was played in and he calmly finished passed the keeper to make the scoreline 3-0 just before the break.
Realising the next goal was going to be a crucial one, Llandudno picked up where they left off and continued to play with a good intensity. Their persistence paid off with another goal for Osian Jones and after some slick passing around the edge of the box, the impressive Joe Carey finished off a great move with a deft chip. Osian Jones completed a well deserved hat-trick after forcing an error from the defender, it capped off a fine performance.
