RHYL were left frustrated as their Huws Gray Alliance clash with Conwy Borough was postponed.

The Lilywhites’ Educate Resource Stadium surface was frozen over and deemed unplayable early on Friday, but their feint title hopes were given a boost with leaders Airbus Broughton drawing with Porthmadog and Bangor City losing to Gresford Athletic.

Eddie Maurice-Jones’ side are now 11 points behind the Wingmakers’ with a game in hand, and they will look to close the gap next Saturday when the Lilies’ make the trip to Gresford (2pm).

It has been a remarkable turnaround in form for the club after a difficult start to the campaign, and sports reporter Dean Jones picks out five players that have played key contributing factors in their resurgence.

Cai Owen:

The talented right-back has been at the top of his game since joining on a permanent basis from Llandudno, and he has all the attributes to go to the very top of the domestic game if he continues to develop at his current rate.

He has an assurance on the ball that defies his age, and Owen has also coped extremely well with the physical demands of the second tier.

Aaron Hassall:

Another wide man that has really caught the eye of late is Hassall, who has a fearless approach to the game that can be the catalyst to win any game if he is in the mood.

The Lilies’ management team have shown tremendous faith in the player and allowed him to express himself whenever possible, something that has brought about some fantastic individual performances this term.

Ben Nash:

The commanding centre half has been arguably the standout performer for the Lilywhites so far this season, and his confidence has grown with every game on what has been a memorable run for the club.

He is a formidable defensive presence and is also a real threat in the opposing penalty box from set-pieces, something that has seen him emerge as a real fan favourite.

Barry Torrence:

It was a difficult start to life at the club for Torrence, who found it difficult to take his chances as he got used to his new surroundings, but that has really turned around in recent weeks with the striker hitting four goals in as many games.

You can see just how much everyone at the Lilies’ is pulling for Torrence to do well, and this seems to have taken the pressure off and brought its reward.

James Murphy:

Another forward that is adored by the Lilies’ faithful, Murphy’s direct playing style and quality in the final third has been a huge asset to have, and his work-rate is matched by his ability to get in the right areas and make things happen.

He is not afraid to get on the ball when things may not be going his way, and this also motivates others around him which can only be a good thing going forward.
