PRESTATYN Sports picked up their finest win of their short time in Lock Stock Welsh Alliance Division One thanks to a hard-fought 2-1 home win over promotion hopefuls Llanrug United.

The newly promoted side turned in a positive display to end a run of three consecutive league defeats, and the three points sees them occupy eighth position in the standings as they continue to adjust to life in the third tier.

Despite the eventual result it was the away side who dominated the opening exchanges, and they went ahead after 34 minutes when a deflected Aaron Hughes effort found its way into the net.

This provoked a strong response from the hosts, who dusted themselves off and went into the break all square when skipper Shane Middleman produced a superb header from a Sam Duffy delivery on 43 minutes.

After the interval saw the visitors go close on a number of occasions, but they were unable to converted any of the opportunities that came their way and were made to pay on 75 minutes when new signing Ben Cawley headed home a Duffy corner after 75 minutes to seal the points.

There was no such luck for St Asaph City, who failed to build on a fantastic start and fell to a 3-1 reverse at Penrhyndeudraeth.

David Evans got the Saints off to a flyer after just ten minutes with a well-taken finish, but Richard Jones, Tom Smith and Jack Jones all struck for the hosts following their initial setback.

Meliden got their Division Two campaign back on track with a resounding 6-2 victory over Holyhead Town.

A treble from Dan Davies played a huge contributing factor in their success, with Matty Griffiths, Matthew Scott and Owen Jones completed the rout.

Kinmel Bay also gained a vital three points thanks to a 2-1 home win over Amlwch Town.
