A STANDOUT showing from Callum Parry was not enough to see Llanrwst United progress in the Lock Stock Cookson Cup.

The prolific forward was at the top of his game for the Rwsters’ at high-profile Holyhead Hotspur, but his exceptional individual effort proved to be for nothing as his side were beaten 5-4 in dramatic fashion.

The Holy Islanders’ took an early lead when Sam Ashworth found the net on 17 minutes, and they added a second through forward Chris Jones with 22 gone.

Parry was looking lively and he managed to fire in a quick-fire brace on 25 and 32 minutes to level matters for the visitors, and the same player was on hand to despatch another chance to give United a shock lead on 42 heading into the break.

After the interval saw the home side up the tempo and equalise through Jones’ second of the tie on 77 minutes, and the ruthless finisher was in the right place at the right time to seal his hat-trick with nine minutes remaining.

The visitors refused to lie down and looked to have sent the game into extra-time when Parry notched his fourth of the contest with another fine finish, but they were caught napping in stoppage time which resulted in Dan McGuinness firing a winner for Spurs with virtually the final goalmouth action.

Llandudno Albion also bowed out of the competition after a 2-1 home defeat to Blaenau Ffestiniog Amateurs after extra-time.

Darren Jones’ side went into the lead on 40 minutes through a Peter Jones effort, but they were pegged by in first half stoppage time courtesy of a Meilir Williams strike.

The additional 30 minutes brought one telling moment from the boot of Williams, who sealed his brace on 112 to send Albion out of the competition.

Glan Conwy are also out after falling to a penalty shootout reverse to Llanberis on home soil after the game finished 1-1 after extra-time.
