Reserves extend winning run in style
Denbigh Town Reserves 6-0 Kinmel Bay Reserves
On an awful evening at Central Park when the rain lashed down and the wind gusted around the ground, Denbigh Town Reserves put on another fine performance to extend their winning run to six games. The comfortable win over Kinmel Bay Reserves sees them remain in second place as they keep the pressure on league leaders Porthmadog who are six points ahead of them in the Lockstock Welsh Alliance Reserves League.
Playing into the wind in the first half they took the lead on 13 minutes through in form striker Andy Thomas who headed in from 6 yards from a Denbigh free kick just outside the penalty box. He was unlucky not to a get a second when a great weaving run from Sion Jones saw Jones lay a great ball to Thomas on the left side of the penalty area and his fierce drive hit the post and bounced away to safety.
With the weather conditions affecting the game it was not until the 44th minute that Town extended their lead when Paul Williams was able to tap in from close range and the team went in at half time in a 2-0 position.
The second half saw Denbigh really take control of the game and when Thomas was brought down in the penalty area on 50 minutes, referee Graham Hannah pointed to the spot. Up stepped Gruff Jones to coolly slot the ball into the net.
Denbigh's defence was proving difficult for the Kinmel Bay attack to get any real chances against keeper Stu Griffiths. The back bone of the team are a strong unit led by captain Graham Owen playing alongside the impressive Jacob Parry. Full backs Billy Holmes and Ryan Roberts add an attacking side to the foursome and they play to each others strengths.
Denbigh's fourth came from Sean James as he had a long range shot form 25 yards which sneaked into the the back of the net. Three minutes later it was 5-0 as Jack Kelly swung a cross into the box from the left wing which caught the wind and floated into the top corner of the net.
Stuart Vernon got the sixth after Thomas did well getting into the penalty area and laid on a pass for Vernon to slot in from 10 yards.
A great win for the lads whose next game is not until the end of the month when they travel to Conwy Borough Reserves on Friday 30th November.
