CONWY Borough moved up to second in the JD Cymru North standings with a comfortable 3-0 home win over Penrhyncoch.

It has been a season to remember so far for the Tangerines, who extended their exceptional run of results to move above Llanrhaedr-ym-Mochnant in the table and seven points behind leaders Prestatyn Town.

Warren Gibbs’ men will be aiming for further success this Saturday when they make the trick trip to Guilsfield, who come into the game on the back of a 4-1 reverse at Colwyn Bay.

The home side dominated possession for the majority of the early stages of the contest without taking full advantage of their opportunities, with Cory Wlliams proving to be a lively option in the final third.

Liam Morris fired an attempt narrowly over on 40 minutes after good work from Tom Clarke in the build-up, but the hosts did receive a boost early in the second period when the Roosters’ were reduced to ten men following a lash out on Sean McCaffrey.

Borough immediately took advantage of their numerical supremacy and went ahead on 64 minutes when Craig Whelan finally made the most of a chance after being teed up superbly by the influential McCaffrey.

This opened the floodgates and shortly after Williams’ ambitious effort sailed inches wide McGonigle latched on to a long ball from keeper Ben Heald to double their cushion with 71 on the clock.

The introduction of Harry Galoetti brought some added pace in the final third for the home side in the closing stages, and they wrapped up another three points on 78 minutes when McGonigle converted his second of the afternoon from a rebound after seeing his penalty attempt saved.
