Mold Alexandra stun Briton Ferry Llansawel to lift Welsh Blood Service League Cup

Mold Alexandra concluded their impressive campaign with silverware as they triumphed 4-2 over Briton Ferry Llansawel in the Welsh Blood Service League Cup final at Latham Park.

Having won the JD Cymru South, Ferry were perhaps favourites for the game but found themselves behind after 13 minutes as Mold top scorer Danny Warren latched onto Jake Roberts’ flick and coolly lifted the ball over Rhys Wilson into the net.

The Reds drew level six minutes later when a foul in the box allowed Luke Bowen to convert from the spot, but Mold were ahead again through Warren shortly after the half hour mark.

This time it was a long ball upfield from goalkeeper Alex Swindell which went all the way through to the prolific Alex striker, who again lobbed Wilson in clinical fashion.

Mold captain Rhys Nash got in on the action in the 63rd minute, as he smashed the ball home on the rebound after Wilson could only parry Roberts’ free-kick.

Roberts had been a threat all game and he finally found the scoresheet himself to wrap up the win in the 73rd minute, meeting Sam Duffy’s cross with a sliding finish into the net.

A consolation goal arrived for Briton Ferry with one minute remaining on the clock, with Bowen chipping the ball over Swindell inside the box, but it did not dampen the Mold celebrations at full-time.

“I’m unbelievably proud of the boys,” Mold coach Mike Cunningham said. “We had a gameplan, we looked at a few videos in the week, but it’s down to those boys who executed it brilliantly. They ran themselves into the ground.

“They wanted to feel what we felt in Denbigh [in the Northern final] again and they’ve done it. I’m just super proud of not just the players but everyone supporting the football club were exemplary today.”
