CONWY Borough mounted a stunning fightback to rescue a share of the spoils in their 2-2 home draw with Penrhyncoch.

The Tangerines showed tremendous character after coming back from two-down late on to end a run of defeat, and the stalemate leaves Gareth Thomas’ men in seventh spot ahead of their next Huws Gray Alliance outing on November 24 at fellow newly promoted side Llanrhaeadr-ym-Mochant.

A goalless first half was brought to life by the Roosters following the interval, and they opened the scoring on 50 minutes when Steff Davies finished well, and the same play was on hand to double the visitors’ advantage soon after another well-taken strike with 58 gone.

This finally woke the home side up and they took complete control of the contest following the setback, with prolific striker Corrig McGonigle reducing the arrears on 65 minutes following a neat passage of play.

With the Tangerine staring another defeat in the face, McGonigle proved to be the difference maker once again in stoppage time when his effort found the corner to ensure both sides had something to show for their efforts.

Boro’ have also bolstered behind the scenes with the appointment of Gwyndaf Jones to the club’s board.

The father of first team skipper Gerwyn brings a wealth of business experience to the second-tier side, and he has a long-running association with the set-up in recent years.

Chris Wilton, chairman at Conwy Borough, said: “Gwyndaf has been a great friend and supporter to the club for a while.

“He combines business acumen with excellent knowledge of North Wales football and we are delighted he will be working with us.

“He is a popular figure at the club and will be an asset going forward. On behalf of everyone, I extend the warmest of welcomes to Gwyndaf.”
