Llanrwst made it four wins on the bounce lifting them to 10th in the table after a convincing 2-0 win at Llandyrynog. The Rwsters had previously won three in a row, with two clean sheets in the last two games, defeat would have left the Rwsters 2nd bottom.
Llanrwst were in high spirits and full of confidence going into the game, and this was evident on the football field. The Rwsters made two changes since the 1-0 win against Abergele, Matthew Mullender coming in for Ryan Watson (unavailable) and Kane Williams going straight into the starting 11 after a call up from the reserves, in place of club Captain Gwyn Jones (illness)
Llanrwst had the majority of the chances and possession but goalkeeper Ryan Goldston was in spectacular form for dyrny.
The Rwsters were attacking well down both flanks, Luke Roberts’s determination and hard work was causing Llandyrnog problems early on, and Kane Williams & Leighton Griffiths were controlling things in the middle of the park. It wasn’t until the end of the half that the Rwsters had their best chance of the half, the effort was denied by an outstanding young goalkeeper. Matthew Mullender with an inch perfect delivery from the left hand side, found Callum Parry who headed it low towards the bottom corner and was looking like a certain goal, somehow Goldston managed to get a hand to it and palmed it away for a corner.
The Rwsters went in half time scratching their heads on how they weren’t in front. Llanrwst came out in the second half firing and were 1-0 after 55 minutes, a 30 yard screamer from Leighton Griffiths. Griffiths struck a volley around the 30 yard mark, and went straight over goalkeeper Goldston who wasn’t able to deny Llanrwst this time. Goldston did however make a string of saves throughout the second half, denying Callum Parry again and seem to have denied a dream debut for Aled Stapleton with a great save. Dyrny held on until the 85th minute but the Rwstes doubled their lead. Kane Williams delivered a great dead ball from wide that somehow found its way to Stapleton, who couldn’t miss this time and headed the ball into the empty net.
The game finished 2-0 to the Rwsters, Dyrny didn’t have a single shot on target, and even top scorer Luke Appleby who had scored 14 goals in the last 7 games couldn’t create and opening, the result matched a convincing performance and the Rwsters confidence grows from strength to strength.
