JD Cymru North round-up | Holywell Town make it 14 wins in a row

Substitute Julian Williams bagged a brace as Holywell Town took a step closer to the JD Cymru North title with a 4-0 victory away at Llandudno on Good Friday. 

It took the Wellmen just nine minutes to open the scoring as Gareth Evans tapped home from close range in the midst of a goalmouth scramble. 

Beau Cornish added a second with a composed finish on the hour mark, before Williams came off the bench to score twice in stoppage time. 

It is now 14 consecutive wins for Johnny Haseldin’s side, while Llandudno are safe from relegation despite their defeat – an impressive achievement after they picked up just three points from their first nine games of the season. 

Second-place Airbus UK Broughton remain one point behind Holywell after a comfortable 3-0 victory over Porthmadog at Y Traeth. 

The Wingmakers were kept at bay by the hosts in the first half, but quickfire goals from Sam Baker and Craig Lindfield broke Port’s resistance early in the second period. Substitute James Davies wrapped things up eight minutes from time with his tenth goal of the season. 

Llanidloes Town were relegated from the JD Cymru North after suffering a 2-1 loss at home to Chirk AAA. 

The Colliers drew first blood in first half stoppage time as striker Louie Middlehurst netted his second goal in as many games, but Luke Boundford equalised for the hosts with 54 minutes on the clock. 

However, Chirk restored their lead through Jack Edwards in the 77th minute and this time around they were able to hold on and earn their first away league of this season. 

Early goals from Harry Martin and Kurtis Pearson were enough to give Ruthin Town a hard-fought 2-1 victory at Gresford Athletic, whose wait for a home win in 2024 goes on. 

Martin and Pearson both netted inside the first five minutes at The Rock, and those strikes proved decisive despite Haci Ozlu’s goal which halved the deficit midway through the first half. 

Ruthin are back in the top half after overtaking Caersws, who were beaten 2-1 late on by Mold Alexandra at Alyn Park. 

Bluebirds forward Neil Mitchell continued his fine recent form by breaking the deadlock with a superb strike in the 16th minute, but the Alex drew level at the beginning of the second half as Jake Roberts set up Steve Watkins to set up a grandstand finish. 

Roberts then found the net himself as he calmly converted from the penalty spot in the 85th minute to complete the comeback for Mold, who strengthened their grip on fourth place.
