KINMEL Bay kept the pressure on Lock Stock Welsh Alliance Division Two leaders Blaenau Ffestiniog Amateurs with a resounding 6-0 derby win at Meliden.

Andy Thomas’ in-form side were at their brilliant best to claim bragging rights over Peter Evans’ side, and they remain in second spot and ten points behind the pacesetters ahead of their trip to Glan Conwy on Saturday.

The away side came out of the blocks flying and took the lead after just nine minutes when Nyal Hughes converted a chance, and they doubled their advantage immediately following the restart when Jordan Worthington despatched an opportunity with 11 on the clock.

This same pattern of pay paid further dividends on 36 minutes when Worthington finished off an impressive team move for his brace, and Bay notched a fourth straight after the interval thanks to a superb striker from Gyorgy Szabo with 48 gone.

Another outstanding spell of possession presented another chance to Worthington on 51 minutes, and the talented forward rounded off an exceptional afternoon in front of goal with a neat finish for his hat-trick.

There was still time for Thomas’ men to rub further salt into the hosts’ wounds, and this time it was James Sweetman who was the beneficiary of yet another excellent and prolonged spell of pressure with a trademark effort to complete the rout and give Bay their tenth win in 17 league contests in what is their first season back in the fourth tier.
