KINMEL Bay FC’s season concluded with a 3-2 home win against CPD Cerrigydrudion on Saturday (April 20).

The Bay finished with 12 wins, four draws and eight defeats, ahead of their Cookson Cup final next weekend against Llandudno Junction.

They took the lead on the 20th minute with a quick goal kick from Ash Lavender, which bounced over the Cerrig back line, and Ben Cawley was there to slot it home.


Kinmel Bay are cup finalists after hard-fought home win

But Cerrig struck next on 33 minutes, after a free-kick positioned towards the corner flag was whipped in by Tomos Jones and Alun Vaughan Evans reacted quickest to bundle the ball into the goal.

Cerrig then took the lead with 52 minutes gone, when the ball was played down the right to Tirion Griffiths, who cut inside and fired into the far bottom corner.

But Bay’s pressure paid off on the 57th minute after a throw which was flicked on by Ben Cawley to Cory Owen, who was left unmarked 25 yards out.

He struck the ball on the half-volley and it sailed through the crowded box and found its way into the bottom corner.

Bay then pushed hard for a winner, and Harry Woodfine turned provider on the 92nd minute with a flicked header.

It fell to Tate Walker, who struck the ball on the outside of his right foot past the oncoming goalkeeper.

Cerrig had a great chance to make it 3-3, but Chris Evans was there again to stop the attack for Bay.
