RHUDDLAN Town progressed to the next stage of the Junior Cup with a superb 6-2 home win over Glantraeth.

Wayne Hughes’ side booked their place in the hat thanks in no small part to a clinical first half display that saw them go into the break with a comfortable five-goal margin.

The Vale of Clwyd and Conwy League Premier Division leaders wasted no time in making their presence felt thanks to a superb header from Jordan Frazer early on, and they doubled their tally soon after when the in-form Jay Whitehouse made the most of the space given to him for Town’s second of the tie.

Whitehouse was proving to be a thorn in Traeth’s side throughout the opening 45 minutes and he notched his second of the afternoon following another prolonged period of possession, and this was swiftly followed by another which came courtesy of the outstanding midfielder Matty Beach.

A sensational first half was rounded off in style when prolific forward Jordan Bellham continued his impressive goalscoring form since returning to the set-up with another clinical finish.

After the break saw Town’s relentless tempo slow due to their superior advantage, and they were punished on two occasions when the away side reduced the arrears with a pair of quick-fire efforts.

This provoked a strong response from the hosts, who completed the scoring late on when another sweeping attacking move was finished off by Matty Rees.

Hughes, said: “It was a good win for us but miles away from the standards we have set ourselves.

“We played some nice football in small patches but I thought it was a poor second half as the away team played long balls which we got a little involved with.”
