NANTLLE Vale remain fourth in the Lock Stock Welsh Alliance Division One standings after they were held 2-2 at Llanberis.

The in-form side failed to make the most of inactivity from their title rivals, and they are now five points behind leaders Bodedern Athletic with a game in hand.

Things did not begin well for the visitors as they fell behind on six minutes when David Jones finished well, but Vale came out with a renewed sense of purpose following the interval and levelled matters through Sion Williams with 49 gone.

The home side responded well to the equaliser and got their noses in front once again when Jones despatched his second of the afternoon on the hour mark, but the visitors managed to secure a share of the spoils late on thanks to an Ashley Owen effort on 80.

Penrhyndeudraeth turned in a fine display to come away with an eye-catching 4-2 home victory over Greenfield.

The hosts got off to a positive start and went ahead on 20 minutes when the prolific Meilir Williams converted a chance, and things got even better just after the break with two goals in quick succession from Aaron Hughes and Steve Jones within six minutes of the restart.

Brett Johns gave the visitors a glimmer of hope soon after when he reduced the arrears, but Jones’ second of the contest put the result beyond doubt and moved Pen into the top six.
