LLANRWST United progressed in the FAW Trophy with a convincing 4-1 home win over Bangor 1876.

The Lock Stock Welsh Alliance Division One side became the first ever team to achieve victory against the newly formed club, turning in a polished display to come through the stiff test in comfortable fashion.

A cagey start to proceedings in difficult conditions saw the home side miss a host of good chances before they finally broke the deadlock just before the break when Matt Mullender produced a moment of magic on 43 minutes to give his side a slender cushion heading into the break.

After the interval saw the hosts continue to dictate play against their Gwynedd League opponents, something which brought further rewards on 63 minutes when Sam Roberts made the most of some space to double the Rwsters’ advantage.

This visibly motivated them further to put the tie beyond doubt, something that they achieved in fortunate fashion on 72 minutes when an 1876 player diverted into his own net following another prolonged period of pressure.

Credit to the visitors, who kept plugging away despite the deficit and they managed to grab a consolation goal late on when talented youngster Benn Lundstram finished well a minute from time to reduce the arrears.

Any hopes of another 1876 comeback were swiftly dashed thanks to United’s fourth and final goal of the tie, which came courtesy of prolific marksman Callum Parry with virtually the final action of the contest.
