KINMEL Bay’s home tie with Lock Stock Welsh Alliance Division Two rivals Holyhead Town was cancelled after the Harbourmen failed to raise a team for the clash.

The hotly anticipated matchup between the two newly promoted sides failed to take place, with league officials now set to dock points from the Anglesey side due to their inability to fulfil the fixture.

Andy Thomas’ side now find themselves ten points behind fourth-tier leaders Blaenau Ffestiniog Amateurs having played the same amount of games following their impressive 3-2 win at in-form Penmaenmawr Phoenix.

The title hopefuls got off to a flying start and went ahead on 17 minutes through a Shaun Roberts strike, and this was swiftly followed by their second which arrived courtesy of a fine effort from Kieron Ellis with 37 gone.

Things got even better for the away side a minute before the break when Roberts despatched his second opportunity of the afternoon to treble their advantage and give them a commanding cushion.

After the break saw Phoenix finally impose themselves on the tie and they found a route back into the game on the hour mark when Alfie Caldecott found the net following a prolonged spell of possession.

A nervy end to proceedings was assured when striker Mike Lundstram converted a chance on 85 minutes, but despite putting the Amateurs under significant pressure in the closing stages it was not enough to find a leveller.

Pwllheli’s home tie with Glan Conwy was postponed after the visitors’ transport broke down en route to the game, and the clash between Y Felinheli and Mochdre Sports fell victim to a waterlogged pitch.
