BARMOUTH and Dyffryn United eased their Lock Stock Welsh Alliance Division One relegation fears after a pivotal 2-0 home win over Mynydd Llandegai.

The Magpies turned in one of their finest displays of the season to secure their third league victory in 16 contests, and they are now second from bottom in the standings having played a number of games more than other sides in the same predicament.

A positive start from the home side saw them open the scoring after 24 minutes when Shane Jones converted an opportunity after a prolonged period of pressure, and they weathered the storm for the remainder of the contest before finally achieving their triumph on 87 when Bobby Griffiths took advantage of some space to find the net.

Llanberis edged close to midtable after a shock 2-1 win at title hopefuls Llanrwst United.

The visitors produced a sensational start to the contest and took the lead on 15 minutes when David Jones found the net, and their task gained more positive momentum in the closing stages of the first period when Gethin Wex doubled their advantage with a well-taken effort with 38 gone.

United gave themselves some hope two minutes before the break when Leighton Griffiths halved the deficit after some neat build-up play, Llan remained resolute in the face of some stern pressure to come away with a crucial win.
