CPD Y RHYL 1879 suffered a brutal 6-1 loss to Flint Mountain last night (March 20), in a game marred by controversy.

Players were forced off after just more than half an hour played, following what Rhyl said was an “incident in the tunnel”.

The Lock Stock Ardal Northern Leagues said that the referee has stopped play due to “crowd trouble”.

Rhyl had drawn level at Mountain’s Essity Stadium through a Callum Parry penalty, but immediately went behind again thanks to a Ryan Kershaw free kick.

The stoppage occurred soon after, and by half time the Lilywhites had fallen 4-1 behind.

There was further misery for Rhyl with two late Flint Mountain goals, the last of which was followed by a red card for Rhyl’s James Jones.

The result leaves Rhyl top of the table, and ahead of second-placed Flint Mountain, by eight points.

However, the Mountain have five games in hand on their promotion rivals.
