RHYL continued to see out the Huws Gray Alliance season in impressive fashion with a 5-0 home triumph over Denbigh Town.

Director of football Eddie Maurice-Jones and a host of former players got one over on their old club with a professional display, which was their second consecutive victory this week at the Educate Resource Stadium in their penultimate second tier fixture.

The Lilywhites round off what has been an inconsistent season next Friday at home to Conwy Borough, who have performed above expectations this term and secured their HGA status in comfortable fashion (7.45pm).

The hosts almost went ahead on four minutes when Luke Wiltshire rattled the post following good work by Joe Sullivan, with Lewis Sirrell flashing an effort wide at the other end with eight on the clock.

Former St Asaph City striker Jake Walker created some space for himself on 28 minutes but failed to find the target for the away side, and the Lilies’ got a crucial breakthrough just before the interval when talented youngster Cai Owen unleashed a ferocious long-range effort that gave Craig Vernon no chance.

Things got even better for the hosts in first half stoppage time when Sam Molyneux finished well from a tight angle after being put through by midfielder Dave McIntyre to double their cushion.

After the break saw Molyneux fire a good chance over the bar on 48 minutes prior to linking up well with Mike Pritchard, but the ex-Gresford frontman made no mistake when presented with another opportunity on 50 minutes to all-but seal the three points.

With momentum now fully with the home side, Molyneux capped off a memorable evening at the office with his hat-trick on 57 minutes when he diverted a Wiltshire delivery past Vernon in fine fashion.

A number of changes were made following the fourth goal that meant five U19 Academy players were on the field for the Lilywhites, and Callum Roberts put the exclamation point on proceeding with a fifth on 85 minutes.
