LLANBERIS got their Lock Stock Welsh Alliance Division One campaign off to a flyer with a 2-1 home triumph over newly promoted Glan Conwy.

Gethin Wakeham broke the deadlock in favour of the home side on 40 minutes, but the Division Two champions showed their resolve in the second period to equalise through Darren Landers with 47 gone.

The crucial moment arrived on 67 minutes and went the way of the hosts, who had a Tomos Saynor strike to thanks for an opening day win.

There was no such luck for last season’s runners-up Bodedern Athletic, who were beaten 3-1 at a strong Greenfield side.

Danny Calvert’s opener for the hosts was cancelled out by summer signing Dean Redmond, who opened his account for Ricky Williams’ men to equalise on 40 minutes.

After the break saw Sam Jones’ restore the home side’s lead on 54 minutes, and they wrapped things up late on when Brett Johns hit the target with 78 on the clock.

Nantlle Vale failed to hold on to a half-time lead and had to settle for a 1-1 home draw with St Asaph City.

Vale got off to a bright start on home soil and managed to get their noses in front on 35 minutes when a neat passage of play presented a chance to Tom Mahoney, who made no mistake with the finish to break the deadlock.

Another telling moment arrived with 70 minutes on the clock, and it was Danny Williams on hand to turn in an opportunity to level matters for the Saints.

Penrhyndeudraeth and Mynydd Llandegai both suffered 4-1 defeats on their travels to title contenders Llandudno Albion and Denbigh Town, with Tom Smith and Osian Jones netting their respective consolations.
