BLAENAU Ffestiniog Amateurs’ reign at the Lock Stock Welsh Alliance Division Two summit has come to an end after a shock 1-0 home loss to Gaerwen.

The long-time leaders enjoyed a frustrating afternoon in front of goal that proved crucial in their reverse, and there was further bad news as Glan Conwy secured a convincing 3-0 success over Penmaenmawr Phoenix to move top on goal difference with a game in hand.

The crucial moment of the contest arrived on 81 minutes when Andrew Wannup pounced to give the away side a slender advantage, and they held firm in the face of some sustained pressure in the closing stages to blow the championship race wide open.

Aberffraw all-but ended the promotion hopes of Kinmel Bay as goals from Richard Owen Roberts and Nathan Moore sealed a superb 2-1 triumph on their travels, with Rhys Parry hitting a sublime hat-trick for Y Felinheli in their eye-catching 4-1 rout at Llannerchymedd.

Marcus Holland, Jack Diamond and Owain Williams all found the target for Pentraeth in their 3-1 home win over Mochdre Sports, and Asa Thomas hit a solitary consolation for Holyhead Town in their heavy 5-1 loss at Pwllheli.

Amlwch Town turned in a much-improved display before eventually losing 2-0 to Llannefydd, with Keiron Jones and Ed Jones on target.
