The Miners eventually ran out comfortable winners in the first round of the Take Stock Van Hire Cup but could not break through until the second half.

The first half was a Miners' onslaught with chances for Lee Beattie, Tom Williams, Darren Hughes and James Hay all before a foul on Jordan Collins in the 21st min gave Williams the chance to open the scoring from the penalty spot

However, goalkeeper Ryan McKean saved the penalty and pulled off another three or four top saves to send the teams in level at half time.

The second half began the same way and, once the deadlock was finally broken through a Hay finish on 51mins, the floodgates opened.

The second was a great goal from Williams who after collecting a 40 yard pass from James Harper, in one exquisite touch took it around the keeper and slotted home.

Hay smashed home a 25 yarder and Hughes got his customary goals in the 71st and 76th minutes to complete the scoring.
Kinmel Bay continued their good form in Division Two of the Lock Stock Alliance with an odd-goal-in five win over Gaerwen

Kerion Lewis put Gaerwen ahead early in the game and Bay struck back to lead at the break with goals from Liam Jones and Ashley Wood.

Robert Dunn made it 3-1 ten minutes after the break and, despite a late goal from Lewis, Bay hung on to take the points.

Kinmel Bay Sports are again in league action on Saturday with a home game against Connahs Quay Town.
