HOLYHEAD Town overcame a numerical disadvantage to secure an impressive 6-3 home win over Llandudno Amateurs.

The Harbourmen were reduced to nine-men before the final whistle but managed to pick up another valuable three points in what already looks to be a marked improvement on a squad that flattered to deceive during the previous campaign.

The visitors managed to start the brighter and went ahead on ten minutes when Mark Cook found the net, but they were pegged back with two goals in quick succession from Asa Thomas and Patrick Williams to give the hosts a slender cushion.

Prolific striker Gary Jo Owen doubled their advantage with another well-taken finish on 41 minutes to double their advantage, and Thomas capitalised on some hesitant defending to notch his second and Town’s fourth a minute before the interval.

After the break saw the outstanding Jordie Murphy convert two chances in quick succession on 54 and 55 minutes to complete the home side’s scoring, but Sandy Malone’s side did not go down without a fight and pulled two back midway through the half with efforts from Aidan Bell and Michael Lauchlan.

Gaerwen also turned in another workmanlike display to come away from their tricky trip to newly promoted Gwalchmai with a narrow 2-1 triumph.

A Mark Jones strike on 47 minutes put the home side in the ascendancy following a period of pressure to open the second half, but crucial strikes from Darren Lewthwaite and Shaun Pritchard turned the game on its head and gave the visitors their second consecutive win to start the season.

Penmaenmawr Phoenix launched a sensational fightback to seal a 4-3 victory at Pentraeth.

Goals from Gwyndaf Hughes and Ryan Wood (2) gave the home side a comfortable cushion after just 32 minutes of play, but Alfie Caldecott (2), Tom Prince and Daniel Hughes all hit back for Phoenix to give them their first three points of the campaign.
