Resurgent Denbigh Town made it back to back wins with a 2-1 score over Mold Alex at Alyn Park, reports Peter Glynn.

After an early scare, Denbigh took a half time lead, courtesy of a Jamie Hobson spot kick on 29 minutes. A goal from Graham Randles levelled matters on 64 minutes before last gasp Jamie Duffy headed the decided just before the final whistle.

Alex were quickest off the mark and after only two minutes should have registered. A dazzling run by Terry Pughe down the right flank saw his perfect cross met beautifully by an incoming Graham Randles, but somehow the big man hit the ball too sweetly and Town gloves man Aziz Hughes somehow blocked ball with a combination of belly and arm.

Denbigh now dominated for long periods and were creating a number of opportunities - some could be considered clear cut - but failed to find the target. Stuart Vernon saw an effort gathered by Ryan Roberts and next Hobson pinged a ball to the feet of Tom Sharples who spanked one into Roberts' breadbasket. On 17 minutes Darren Cassidy - again fed by a deft Hobson - slammed one at goal from wide right and was in agony to see his effort rebound off the bar. Duffy failed to add a connection and the ball was ushered to safety. For Mold Owain Roberts hit an effort wide after more work from Pughe but on 29 minutes the deadlock was broken in somewhat controversial circumstances. Nice play from Vernon saw the ball threaded through to Cassidy who went to ground under pressure from Brett Jones - possibly a little too easily. Hobson planted the ball home to edge Denbigh ahead. There was an ebb and flow that made the second stanza a good spectacle. Town had the opening salvoes without being particularly threatening whilst Mold were happy to hit the visitors on the break. But on 64 minutes the balance of the game shifted and deservedly, after a period of pressure, Mold were level. Pughe seemed to waltz through a static Denbigh defence before playing in Graham Randles who couldn't miss from six yards. Mold were suddenly at it and could- nay, should - have added another a moment later after pinball in the Denbigh six yard box. Darren Pritchard fired over and next Owain Roberts' effort was ruled offside after Randles played him in when he should have had a pop himself. It was Mold's best period, with Pughe pulling the strings. And now we saw the game swing once again. Denbigh, having weathered the storm, began to ask questions of the Mold defence. Jon Slater poked an effort at keeper Roberts when a square ball to Cassidy must have resulted in a goal. Next Liam Jones played in Duffy whose effort as fly kicked to safety. And then on 86 minutes came the deciding moment. Pressure on the Mold goal saw Duffy get his head to ball five yards from goal and Denbigh had the points.

Denbigh Town eased to their first league win in ten games with a 2-0 result over Caernarfon Town, writes Peter Glynn at Central Park. A goal in each half earned the Vale side maximum points against a Caernarfon side that looked a shadow of the outfit that started the season with so much promise. The first half was an even affair with both sides testing the waters without really committing - though Gary Penlington came close to edging the visitors ahead on 11 minutes, his header beaten over by Town gloves man Azz Hughes. Ian Evans had a penalty shout soon after for a push in the back, and then Mark Roberts sent in an effort for the Cofis that inched wide. The game was uninspiring until the 24th minute. Denbigh's Darren Cassidy received the ball to feet 25 yards from goal, looked up and curled in a beauty to warm a bitterly cold afternoon. The second stanza was mostly Denbigh's and they deservedly scored their second - and clinching- goal on 54 minutes. A free kick from Liam Jones was met by the head of Kevin Evans a yard outside of the box, the ball looping over and beyond Mike Platt in the Arfon goal. Adrian Hoyle hit the bar after a mazy run and next Ian Evans had a close range effort well taken by Platt, who impressed for most of the afternoon. Caernarfon's best chance fell after smart work from John Kennedy whose sublime cross was headed wide by Ben Collins. Jon Slater may have added a third on 88 minutes after a surging burst that put him in the clear. The longfellow lifted the ball over Platt under pressure from the Cofi defence but watched his effort roll agonisingly across goal to safety.

Determined Denbigh held high-flying Flint Town to a 2-2 draw - and were unfortunate not to grab all three points in a feisty encounter at Central Park, reports Peter Glynn.
Flint had a one-goal advantage at the break courtesy of a Sean Beck spot kick. But the hosts bounced back with goals from Ian Evans and Jamie Duffy, yet were denied the win at the death with a Mike Banks goal on the 97 minute.
Flint bossed the first stanza without a shadow of a doubt, with Beck, Simon Thelwell and John Hill all going close to scoring. Arwel Hughes pulled off a double save to deny Jon Kenworthy on 15 minutes. Next  Kenworthy set up Paul Williams whose header was pawed over at full stretch. Town tried to add some pressure of their own , with Wilkinson going closest with an effort from a sharp angle, which was bundled behind for a corner. The deadlock was broken on 21 minutes when Mike Sharples hacked down Beck in the box. Beck rolled the ball home to give Flint the edge. If the visitors commanded the first stanza , the second belonged to Denbigh. Excellent pressure in the early stages saw the Town gain parity when Ian Evans latched onto a through ball from Vernon and he thumped home in glee. The game boiled over soon afterwards , with Williams-Cooke and Simon Thelwell receiving straight red cards after a fracas held the play up for 10 minutes. Flint now looked rattled whilst Denbigh seemed the most likely to score - and on 79 minutes they gained the lead through Jamie Duffy who fired through a ruck of players. It was now all hands to the pump as Flint threw players forward. Hughes pulled off another full length save to deny Hill - and Sharples headed off the line as United threw wave after wave forward. On the final whistle, a flag kick landed at the feet of Mike Banks and the man of Flint fired home to salvage a point for his side.

31 January 2010

Despondent Denbigh were consigned to a home defeat, this time at the hands of Llanfair PG, reports Peter Glynn at Central Park.

The hosts posted a half time lead but were rocked by an early penalty decision and a last gasp winner from the Islanders' Arwyn Owen. It all started reasonably brightly for the Vale side, with Richard Williams Cooke and Tommy Mutton linking up nicely, and two efforts had to be dealt with by Pwll's Ben Heald as Town sniffed an opener. The visitors huffed and puffed without causing too much in the first twenty and Denbigh were rewarded for some good pressure with the opening goal. Craig Wilkinson twisted past one - nay two- defenders , squared to Ian Evans and , with the ball nicely sat up for him , the goal grabber unleashed a first timer that went in off a post. Williams Cooke saw a header cleared off the line but at the other end a lively Terry Williams in swinger was inched wide by Iwan Williams just before the break.

If the home side were looking to kick on and secure the points, they were to be disappointed. The second stanza opened with two moments of controversy, revolving around foul play within the box. Mutton was denied a spot kick by Referee Lo Faro when seemingly brought to terra firma by gloves man Heald. Almost immediately at the other end, Azz Hughes was adjudged to have floored Owen. Iwan Williams placed effort drew the Anglesey mob level.

The game became scrappy; with Town, failing to produce a killer pass - and when one was played - failed to find the target. Meanwhile, Llan were happy to hit the hosts on the break, one such resulting in an effort from Owen that looked goal-bound, only to be denied by the woodwork. For Denbigh, Wilkinson sliced across the face after monumental work and a precision pass from Sharples. Mutton hit wide of a post after neat play between Williams - Cook and Cassidy. It was to be Town's last chance.

As the sands of time petered out, class act Arwyn Owen grabbed all three points for Llanfair. A long ball was fed through towards the little maestro and his speed took him past Azz Hughes and he had the simplest of tasks to roll the ball into an empty net.

Town Held By Gresford Athletic

Denbigh Town halted their losing sequence with a 1-1 draw against basement side Gresford Athletic, reports Peter Glynn at Central Park.

Probably hoping for a maximum return, the Vale side had to settle for points shared in a dour contest that offered little in the way of goalmouth action. Latics took an 11th minute lead when live wire Dan Brown prodded home from the six yard box after excellent work by Phil Jones. Denbigh responded well and almost equalised when Stuart Vernon played a one -two with Ian Evans but saw his shot well saved by the visitor's gloves man Gareth Rowland. At the other end Big Azz Hughes pulled off a full length save to prevent his team falling further behind and next Town's Ian Evans sent a sweet shot inches wide of a post as the game swung from end to end.

Denbigh drew level on the 23rd minute and it was a goal of quality. Excellent play from Hoyle on the left flank saw the big man cut inside and his cross was volleyed beyond Rowland in the 'Ford goal by Mike Sharples. Though upping the ante in the second stanza, Denbigh really failed to overpower a hardworking Gresford outfit. Duffy, Kevin Evans and debutant Tom Sharples all went close to goal with good opportunities, yes Gresford themselves continued to pose a risk, and in Brown and Phil Jones had two players who were always a handful on the break.

Fair result.

05 December 2009
Denbigh Tow's dismal form continued in a 2-0 reverse at 10 men Holyhead, reports Peter Glynn.
In a game dominated by driving wind and a flurry of cards, there was little in the way of quality to warm the paying public. Gareth Caughter inched the Harbourmen ahead on 19 minutes and despite being reduced to 10 men after 35 minutes, continued to look the most likely, sealing their win with a KC Owen strike on 55 minutes.
Facing into a howling gale, Denbigh were up against it from the off, having to deal with some wicked deliveries into the box against a side determined to fight for every ball. Town had to work hard to create anything of their own in the home side half of the field. Ian Evans and Andy Booker linked up on 15 minutes , playing in Stuart Vernon whose through ball to Evans was just a little to far for the Denbigh hit man to pounce upon.
On 19 minutes, the Island side were ahead. Another quality ball into Town's danger area found Mel McGuinness quickest to the ball, it eventually fell to Caughter in front of the posts, and he converted with glee. The goal lifted Holyhead and there was a home side shout for a penalty moments later but the referee acknowledged a superb last ditch tackle from Denbigh's Mike Sharples as fair. The decision sparked a number of challenges from both sides and players began to receive early Christmas Cards from the official, the man in black having plenty of work to do to separate the sides during a melee free for all. Back to football and Azz Hughes pulled off the same of the game, diving full length to paw a flashing drive from McGuinness round the post. The home brigade were reduced in personnel when Curt Williams received a straight red for a challenge on Liam Jones, a product of leftovers from the previous melee.
The second stanza was more balanced as a contest, with Denbigh doing a bit more to trouble the Holyhead defence without really threatening. Booker almost got onto a Mike Hinds in-swinger. Ian Evans' touch let him down when played in by Ade Hoyle, but at the other end the Island mob almost scored when McGuinness let fly from 20 yards but found Hughes in the right place to gather the firm effort. On 55 minutes, the home side sealed the three points. KC Owen, who was the pick of the Holyhead team, slid home from the edge of the box after good persistence from McGuinness.
The game continued in niggardly fashion and Booker almost grabbed a consolation at the death but his header from a Hoyles cross inched over.

22 November 2009

Goal greedy Denbigh Town Reserves registered a 7-1 win at Halkyn United, reports Peter Glynn.

Jac Glover opened proceedings on 5 minutes from close range, with a Mike Hinds volley from ten yards doubling Town's lead. Glover got his second and Denbigh's third just before the break. It was one way traffic in the second stanza, Gaz John Williams spanked a quick fire brace on 56 and 59 minutes, Mike Hinds added Denbigh's sixth on 71 minutes and Williams completed his hat trick on 80 minutes. Chris Jones replied for United just before full time. There were excellent performances from Jamie Evans, Lee Mason, Andrew Booker and Man of the Mach Lewis Worthing. Considering the conditions, this was Denbigh Town's best of the season.

21 November 2009

Denbigh Town slipped to their third successive defeat at the hands of Penrhyncoch, reports Peter Glynn from Central Park.

In one of the few games to survive the weather, Pen's Richard Evans registered a double either side of half time, with Jamie Duffy grabbing a close range consolation just before the final whistle. The hosts started the brighter, going close through Stuart Vernon and Kevin Evans in the first quarter hour. Jamie Duffy saw a firm header from a flag kick well saved on 17 minutes, and then Ian Evans did well to fire off a shot, only to see it deflected wide when a goal looked likely. At the other end, the visitors were finding it tough in the conditions but they burst into action on 34 minutes, thanks to good persistence from their front men. Adrian Hoyle lost the ball just outside the Denbigh box. It was latched onto by Jamie Morris who slipped it through to Richard Evans. With only Azz Hughes to beat, his firm effort squirmed in off a glove and suddenly the West Wales outfit were buzzing. Hughes was under pressure a moment later when Morris tried an effort from a sharp angle, but this time the big stopper deflected the ball to safety. Denbigh now found the going hard, though Rob Render may have registered from a Vernon cross, but his header down sought out a red shirt rather than the target. The second stanza was less enterprising for a Denbigh side that lacked confidence in front of goal. Though pressing the play, the Central Park side were always liable to be caught on the break.  A slip by Duffy allowed Morris a deep run into Town territory and his simple ball to Evans doubled the Pen advantage. Evans should have completed his hat trick, slipping by Sharples but edging his sot wide of the left post with only Hughes to beat. On 85 minutes, Town thought they had a sniff of a chance to get something from the game. An indirect free kick was awarded on the edge of the Pen box, and Stuart Vernon’s fierce shot was turned in by Jamie Duffy - his fourth league goal of the campaign. To be fair, it was the only time the Pen keeper was seriously troubled in the second half. Denbigh huffed and puffed but the visitors adequately coped with what Denbigh threw at them in the remaining minutes. And to compound a miserable afternoon, Graham Owen saw a harsh second yellow for a last ditch challenge that had more to do with the conditions than foul play.

Denbigh Town Reserves Goal Rush

Eight goal Denbigh Town Reserves grabbed second spot in the Black Dragon Badges Reserve League with the demolition of  bottom placed Halkyn United , reports Peter Glynn.

Without a point all season it was going to be a tough afternoon for the Flintshire side. Denbigh could - and should- have posted a cricket score but 8-0 is impressive enough. Denbigh went nap before the break, with Andrew Booker starting the rout on 10 minutes, latching onto a superb through ball from Graham Owen and slotting past an abandoned Halkyn keeper. Five minutes later Gaz John's speed took him past the last man and the net bulged with a low drive into the left hand corner. The same man notched another on the half hour mark and then Andy Booker mesmerised his way through the United midfield before tucking the ball home with aplomb. And five minutes before the break, Gaz John completed his hat trick, latching onto a long ball and slammed home in front of the posts. Denbigh is riddled with quality, from Ally Stubbs who bossed midfield in a quiet and composed manner. Other picks were Graham Owen in central defence, Russ Vaughan and the workaholic Mike Hinds who ran his tripe out for the full ninety.

There was to be no respite for Halkyn in the second stanza. Though the United defence tightened up somewhat , and Denbigh began to waste a number of good opportunities , normal service was resumed on 79 minutes , with Ian Williams running through the Halkyn defence , his second strike in two games , a neatly composed finished in the bottom right hand corner of the net. Gary Madoc Jones fired a double on 80 and 84 minutes to give the score a semblance of reality.

08 November 2009

Llangollen Demolish Denbigh.
Six Star Llangollen Town destroyed Denbigh Town in a one sided encounter at Towerfields, reports Peter Glynn at Llangollen. The hosts were one up at the break through a Paul Griffiths header, and added a further five strikes - one a 'what happened next' moment - in a devastating display of counter attacking. A Tommy Mutton penalty on 92 minutes was the only Denbigh response. The first stanza was even in terms of possession and though Denbigh huffed and puffed, it was the Towermen who were creating the main threats to goal. Simon Hulse, Simon Smith and Matt Holmes went close before Llan edged ahead through a neat passage of play. Holmes did well out on the right, found a yard and delivered a cross to Griffiths, whose firm header effort beat gloves man Azz Hughes. Hulse and Smith next went close as they looked to capitalise on a somewhat hesitant Denbigh defence, but at the other end Ian Evans was unlucky not to convert after neat play between Vernon and Mutton. Smith was the standout player of the half - his speed and skill were a constant menace. The second stanza seemed to indicate a Denbigh revival, with Llan finding it difficult to break out of their half for the first 15 minutes. However, on 70 minutes, they did just that and it was Smith who gave the hosts some breathing space. The little winger got the ball to feet just inside his own half. He beat one, two and a third for good measure and released a low drive that deflected off a shin and into the net. Gareth Lloyd's men were now on fire and Smith might have added another a minute later, but hesitation and a Sharples tackle denied him. However, on 72 minutes the game was over as a contest, this courtesy of a Keystone Cops moment. Llangollen keeper Adam McGee launched a kick from his own area and, with no one at home between the Denbigh sticks, the ball bounced unaided into an empty net. Any hope of a Denbigh comeback was gone. McGee received the congratulations with a wry smile. Darren Hignett's flick header from a corner on 76 minutes made it 4-0 for a now rampant Llan mob - one feared for Denbigh at this point- and on 79 minutes, Matt Holmes stroked in a fifth, a product of his own determination. Smith added a sixth on 89 minutes before Ian Evans was chopped in the box and Mutton side footed a consolation.

Reserves Rout Roosters

Impressive Denbigh Town Reserves surged into the 2nd Round of the President Cup by napping Llanrwst United Reserves in their own backyard, reports Peter Glynn.

The visitors took one nil lead into the break, with Ian Williams latching onto a hopeful cross and executing a perfect lob over the Roosters gloves man. Further goals in the second stanza from Gary Madoc Jones (2) Andrew Booker and Mike Hinds sealed a good win for Russ Pierce's charges.

Cefni Do the Double over Denbigh

Two first half goals gave Llangefni Town a win over battling Denbigh Town , reports Peter Glynn from Central Park.

A contentious Danny Glyn effort on 16 minutes ,  followed by a close ranger five minutes before the break from centre back Grahame Austin were enough to consign the home team to their first league defeat in nine games. Indeed, Denbigh's previous defeat had come against the visitors, which the hosts had been hoping to avenge. Denbigh started quite brightly, with Mutton and Ian Evans putting themselves about, though without really threatening to score. But after the opening exchanges Llangefni picked up the pace and their first chance fell to Darren Thomas who beat Jamie Duffy to the ball, only to see his firm strike well parried by big Azzy Hughes in the Denbigh nets. Hughes experienced some good fortune a moment later as Llangefni's Kevin Roberts floated an absolute beauty towards goal, the ball coming back off the bar with most preparing to shout "good goal!". The visitors were now well on top and on the quarter hour mark opened the scoring. Stalwart Danny Glyn Roberts found himself with just Azz Hughes to beat, with the Denbigh squad bawling for a foul on Duffy. The big stopper managed to get a glove to the ball, but Llangefni turned in delight as the ball sneaked in at the right post. Hughes was keeping his side in it as another dazzling run from Darren Hughes found Danny Glyn on the left and his shot was gratefully pouched by the Denbigh gloves man.

Another Danny Glyn effort was turned away dramatically by Hughes as Denbigh looked to be weathering the storm and then began to ask a few questions of their own.

Vernon set up Mutton whose rifled effort was brilliantly pushed away by Cefni stopper Shaun Pearson. Craig Wilkinson saw an effort diverted away for a corner and next Ian Evans' persistence set up Mutton who slammed wide. But on 40 minutes, the visitors doubled their tally, this time from a free kick situation. Steven Kehoe sent in a low curler into the box and though Azz Hughes got a paw to it, the ball fell invitingly to Grahame Austin who spanked it home with relish. A feature of the visitors play was their free kicks and crosses into the box. Pure quality and difficult to defend against. The second stanza was a more evenly contested affair, though the Islanders could and should have added to their tally, with Danny Glyn, Bobby Williams and Warren Gibbs going close. A stand out moment was a scintillating run from wingback Chris Williams who cut through the Denbigh ranks like a scythe before unleashing a shot that skimmed the cross bar. People applauded that.

At the other end Denbigh themselves came close without really threatening to score. A Mike Sharples effort through a ruck of players appeared to have crossed the line, but the Man in Black was not convinced. That really was the pick of it from the home supporters viewpoint. The Cefni back line was, in the main, rarely troubled. One cannot fault the effort of the Central Park mob - who saw yellow cards for Jenkins and Todd for over commitment - but praise should go to the visitors who played with speed, skill and determination - and who noisily celebrated the three points at the final whistle.

Denbigh Town v Mold Alexandra
Saturday 24 October 2009

A very good publication that was let down by them not printing the Mold Alex team, their club secretary had admitted to recieving the details but then the programme had gone to print early on the tuesday.
The programme listed both teams history's and player's pen pic's, their was several match reports and colour photo's of previous home action against Lex XI.
Plenty for the stat's minded with first team and second team results and league tables, overall a very worth while effort and good value for money too.

Mutton Chops Alex

Denbigh Town continued their unbeaten sequence with a 2-0 win over Mold Alex, reports Peter Glynn at Central Park.

An early doors penalty from hot shot Tommy Mutton inched the hosts in front before a quickly taken free kick two minutes from time from Kevin Evans sealed matters.

Alex had the brighter start, with Terry Pughe and big Graham Randles causing a few alarms in the Denbigh back line. But on 4 minutes Town found themselves ahead courtesy of Referee Trigg who pointed to the spot after the ball had leapt up catching an unfortunate Craig Roberts on the arm. Mutton licked his chops and spanked it home.

On twenty minutes it should have been two. Adrian Hoyle eyed a lurking Mutton in front of goal but on this occasion the Denbigh goal-getter rolled the chance wide. Pughe had a dazzling run as the visitors looked to respond and his cross cum shot edged across goal with big Arwel Hughes looking at daisies. A minute later Randles had a shot deflected wide by Mike Sharples and next big Sam Roberts released a blaster which again Town were fortunate to divert away for a flag kick.

At the other end Denbigh could have registered after good approach play by the impressive Hoyle. He eventually sought out Stuart Vernon, who beat a man, beat him again and sent in a firm effort which was turned over the Alex bar by last man Craig Roberts. Chances were coming thick and fast for the hosts and one wondered if Steve Jones' men would rue their profligacy. On 35 minutes Jamie Duffy found himself in the Mold box after a corner and he played in Mutton who was stood on his own-some with only the keeper to beat. His header cleared the bar when scoring seemed easier.

It was more of the same in the second stanza, with Denbigh in the ascendency for much of the half. Yet Mold were always in it , and Randles was head in hands after seeing big stopper Arwel Hughes tip the ball behind the post after a ruckus in the six yard box. More opportunities knocked, with Booker, Todd and Vernon all going close to registering. On 88 minutes the game was finally put to bed after Gaz John was hacked down on the edge of the Mold box. Evans had a quiet word in the shell-like of Referee Trigg and the Denbigh captain flashed the quickly taken free kick into the net to seal the Denbigh win.

Bethesda Athletic 3-3 Denbigh Town
Entertaining game for the neutral, frustrating for the visiting fans. Denbigh should have won this game. The match officials didn't have their best ever day, even so Denbigh created enough chances to have won the game. Kevin Evans opened the scoring for Denbigh. Denbigh dominated the 1st half for long periods but went in at half time 2-1 down, Bethesda's goals coming from Jake Whitmore and Richard Owen. Stu Vernon missed a penalty for which the home custodian only saw yellow only for the Assistant Ref to flag the keeper for moving off his line, Tommy took the 2nd penalty and the keeper saved but Tommy reacted quickest to level the scores. Craig Wilkinson gave Denbigh the lead will a cool finish after excellent approach play by him and Kevin Evans.
Denbigh failed to prevent a right wing attack and when the cross came in an unmarked Jake Whitmore guided the ball home. Whilst this will feel like 2 points dropped, Denbigh are on an 8 game unbeaten run in the league and are playing some good stuff and scoring plenty of goals.

15 October 2009

Denbigh Town played out an exciting 2-2 draw in an end to end encounter against high flying Flint Town United, reports Peter Glynn at Cae Castell.

Flint looked to be flying early doors when Alan Dawson converted on 9 minutes and but for heroics from Denbigh gloves man Azz Hughes , would have gone in at half time with a handsome lead. The second stanza was a different kettle. Tom Mutton squared the scores from close range  and moments later Darren Cassidy grabbed the lead for the visitors with a beauty on 49 minutes. But on 65 minutes Flint captain Sean Beck capitalised on sloppy defending to head his side level. Flint started fast and furious with Dawson and Beck a constant threat, which Denbigh did well to weather. But on nine minutes the visitors were undone by a goal of some quality. A Jamie Duffy clearance fell to the feet of Flint hit man Dawson on the edge of the box. He took a touch before cracking a screamer into the top left hand corner, giving Hughes no chance. Flint should now have put the game to bed as chance after chance fell their way, but big Azz Hughes pulled off three good saves to keep his mob in with a sniff.

At the other end, Denbigh began to ask a few questions of their own. Stu Vernon probed the Flint back line and Town thought they had edged a leveller from Mutton on 27 minutes but his effort just inched wide.  The game began to ebb and flow one way and then the other.  Denbigh bossed the early stages of the second stanza and it was no surprise to see them level the scores on 49 minutes. Excellent work from Kevin Evans released a galloping Darren Cassidy who bore down on goal. His thunderbolt bulged the net. Suddenly Denbigh fancied themselves. Mutton and Liam Jones then went close as Flint looked rattled, before the former struck to give the Central Park side the lead. Again it was Evans who was the catalyst. His trickery allowed Craig Wilkinson a fearsome shot on target, with keeper Jones only able to parry to the feet of Mutton who blew it in. The home side continued to ask questions of the Denbigh defence and only a lapse in concentration allowed the Men of Flint back into it. Inevitably it was Sean Beck who registered, the Flint talisman nodding in from five yards. Both sides now had given their all. There were harum-scarum in both penalty boxes which caused some sharp intakes of breath but all would agree that the fairest result was honours even.

Form-idable Denbigh Destroy Lex
Free scoring Denbigh Town jumped to third in the Cymru Alliance League following this fifth straight win , putting Lex XI to the sword in a one-sided encounter at Central Park , reports Peter Glynn.
An early goal from Jamie Duffy gave Town an edge with Stuart Vernon doubling the lead on 13 minutes. Tommy Mutton converted the goal of the game on 63 minutes, with an own goal and a Kevin Evans strike on the final whistle completing the scoring. It was one way traffic for much of the game, though Lex could have taken a lead after only 4 minutes. Class act Rene Pinard found himself in front of goal with only Azzy Hughes in the Town goal to beat, but the big stopper spread himself well to deny what looked a certain score. From that point onwards it was all Denbigh. Mutton and Ian Evans both went close before the deadlock was broken on 10 minutes. Ian Evans did well on the left and his cross-cum-shot across the face of goal was met by Jamie Duffy who goaled it with his head. Duffy was a menace all game and the big centre half could have notched a hat trick. Three minutes later Steve Jones' mob doubled their advantage. Ian Evans fed the nippy Craig Wilkinson who skimmed a man, crossed from the by-line to Vernon who chalked his cue and potted it in the corner.
Craig Wilkinson struck the post, Jamie Hobson skidded one wide and next Mutton was unlucky to see an effort blocked off as Denbigh grabbed the game by its proverbials. At the other end the tricky Pinard worked himself a shooting chance, but Mike Sharples put in a great tackle to prevent a shot on target.
The second stanza was more of the same as the hosts bossed proceedings. Ian Evans twanged the crossbar from 25 yards; Wilkinson went close on two occasions before Mutton scored the goal of the game, curling in a beauty from the edge of the box. Lex were dead and buried, with Mike Griffiths compounding matters for the visitors by heading into his own net. And on 90 minutes Kevin Evans completed the nap with a 20 yard left footed effort, a deserved goal of quality for an outstanding performance from Denbigh's captain.

Nine Man Denbigh Defeat Guilsfield.

There was a memorable encounter at Central Park, as free scoring Denbigh Town stormed to a 4-1 over Guilsfield, reports Peter Glynn.

It was a game littered with red cards as well as goals. Ian Evans edged his side in front on 21 minutes before Miles Todd saw red for a wayward elbow. The home mob doubled their advantage on 37 minutes with a 35 yarder from Stuart Vernon. A goal just after the break from Tommy Mutton, his first since re-signing for the club, settled the game as a contest. Denbigh's Paul Jenkins joined Todd in the showers with a second bookable and a minute later the visitor’s full back Emyr Roberts joined them for serious foul on Ian Evans in the Guilsfield box. Jamie Hobson stroked home the subsequent spot kick. On 88 minutes Matt Newton volleyed a consolation for visitors. The opening minutes laid a platform for events to come. Some tough tackling on both sides drew the wrath of Referee Spender, with Denbigh's Jenkins first into the notepad for a late challenge on Llion Davies that left the little man on the ground for five minutes. There was then an element of tit for tat retaliation and one feared the worst. A moment of class on 21 minutes refocused minds upon the football and gave Denbigh the lead. Vernon, full of tricks, wheedled some room out on the right. He picked out a sweet ball to Ian Evans on the six yard line and the hit-man bulged the net with a firm header.

Only moments later Denbigh were reduced to ten men. Miles Todd rose to a challenge and was pulled up for use of the elbow. He drew an instant red from the man in black despite protestations. Yet though depleted in the ranks, Town continued to threaten with the visitors not yet at the races.

In the midst of chaos came a moment to remember. It fell on 37 minutes.  Vernon received the ball 40 yards from goal and with the wind at his back , the midfielder took a couple of strides , got his head over the ball and in it flashed - a contender for goal of the season.

Five minutes into the second stanza the game was all but dead as a contest. Excellent work on the right by Ian Evans saw the ball set up for Craig Wilkinson. He squared for a lurking Tommy Mutton who spanked home in glee from all of five yards.

The game threatened to turn nasty, with challenges coming in from both sides. Jenkins received a second yellow to reduce Denbigh to nine. Yes, he won the ball but it is an easy decision for an official to make if both feet leave terra firma.

Next it was the turn of Guilsfield to lose a man. Emyr Roberts chopped a goal bound Ian Evans to ground. As last defender he had to go. Hobson sent Dave Littleford the wrong way from the spot kick. Guilsfield did grab a consolation goal but it came too late in the day to cause any discomfort. The visitors had huffed and puffed all afternoon without really threatening to score. To be fair, Mike Sharples and Jamie Duffy were awesome in the heart of the defence and never put a foot wrong between them. Matt Newton - the pick of the mid Wales outfit - found some space as Town sought a fifth. The skill merchant latched onto a bouncing ball and sent a dipping volley from twenty five yards up , over and through big Azzy Hughes , who is still pondering the how’s and whys of the strike.

03 October 2009

Denbigh Town Reserves went down to a 4-2 deficit against Prestatyn Town Reserves in a cracking encounter at Bastion Road, reports Peter Glynn.

It was feisty, fiery and controversial from the off - and the Vale mob will consider themselves unfortunate not to come away with a point.

The opening salvoes belonged to the hosts , but suddenly the visitors burst into life ,  forcing three successive corners and were unfortunate not to covert through Gary Madoc Jones and big Lewis Worthing.

Then on 25 minutes came the first moment of controversy, when James Hay slammed home with the Denbigh defence baying for an offside decision.

Almost immediately Russ Pierce's men were level. A free kick out on the right was beautifully played into the box by Mike Hinds and Andy Booker got his head on the end of it. It was now end to end, with Stu Griffiths pulling off a great save when a goal seemed certain, and at the other end Gary Madoc left his calling card on Seasiders keeper Jamie Roberts when chasing down a fifty-fifty ball.

Five minutes before the break, the Bastion Road side were ahead. Steve Harris struck from close range, much to Denbigh annoyance who were again looking for a decision from the man in black.

The second stanza was Prestatyn possession, but the visitors continued to look menacing. Pressure on the Denbigh goal led to two penalty shouts - the second being awarded on 70 minutes and Gareth Davies send Griffiths the wrong way.

It wasn't over yet and on 75 minutes Madoc Jones crashed home after excellent work from Gaz John. It suddenly looked as if Denbigh could grab a point, with Worthing and Jamie Evans next threatening to level.

But on 80 minutes the game was finally put to bed. A neat run and finish by Chris Davies gave Prestatyn the points, his finish into the top corner being the goal of the game.

Single Strike Dumps Denbigh

Llangollen FC progressed to the second round of the League Cup courtesy of a one nil win at Denbigh Town, writes Peter Glynn.

Aaron Aby's eighth minute strike was the one moment of composure in a game littered with opportunities. Possession was evenly shared after the goal, with both teams carving out half chances. Vernon lobbed over on 20 minutes, Ian Evans bundled a Cassidy cross just wide, whilst at the other end Llan almost doubled their advantage when Simon Smith saw his goal-bound effort blocked off. Just before the break Kevin Evans bombed a free header past a post from a Vernon flag kick.

The second stanza was more of the same - with Denbigh looking the more likely. Returnee Tommy Mutton latched onto a free kick and was astounded to see Llangollen stopper Adam McGee save with an outstretched boot. At the other end Aby got onto a back heeler and fizzed one across the face, and then Smith flash an effort over with only big Azzy Hughes to beat. That was the pick of the action, with the visitors finishing strongly to secure safe passage into the next round.

Cymru Alliance League Cup Round 1
Denbigh Town v Llangollen ko 2.30pm extra time and penalties if required.
Denbigh Town are looking forward to Cup football this weekend after picking up 10 points from their last four league games.
Team news: Gary Madoc Jones is promoted from the Reserves. Craig Wilkinson who missed the midweek win at Buckley through injury returns.
Bryn Jones, Paul Edwards and Chris Williams are all hoping to resume training this week.

Gresford Athletic 1-4 Denbigh Town
Denbigh dominated the 1st half but failed to make their superiority count. Town hit the bar twice and had several good chances but each time shot straight at the keeper.
Early in the 2nd half Gresford took the lead through Nathan Pugh this galvanised the hosts and presented Denbigh with a real challenge to see of the leagues bottom club.
There was a nasty off the ball incident which left Craig Wilkinson prone for several minutes and indeed shortly afterwards was unable to continue and replaced by Stuart Vernon. That incident and Vernon's introduction turned the game as Denbigh stormed forward and on 68 minutes Ian Evans converted a penalty after Darren Cassidy had been fouled in the box. Four minutes later Cassidy himself was on the score sheet after great work by Stuart Vernon. Jamie Duffy (86) headed home to kill off the visitors and Cassidy got his 2nd and Denbigh's 4th in the 90th minute.
This win lifts Denbigh into 7th place but 3 teams are only 1 point behind with a game in hand.

Denbigh Too Hot For Holyhead

Three late goals gave Denbigh Town a 4-1 win over Holyhead Hotspur , reports Peter Glynn from Central Park.

An Ian Evans close ranger on 35 minutes put Town ahead at the break, and after Mel McGuiness had squared the match on 77 minutes, a Stuart Vernon double and a Kevin Evans header gave the hosts the points. The first stanza was evenly matched, with both sides showing little in the way of chance creation - apart from the goal, which is worth describing. Stuart Vernon twisted himself a shooting chance on the edge of the box. His effort was hacked off the line but fell invitingly for a lurking Ian Evans. The hit man licked his chops and bagged it into the corner. Darren Cassidy hit wood for the Vale mob when it looked easier to convert, and Gareth Caughter returned the compliment from the Islanders, though from a tighter angle. Hotspur had flattered but showed little up front, their one threat being the mercurial workaholic Mel McGuiness. And it was fitting that it was the small man who gave his side an equaliser on the 77th minute. A neat through ball caught the Denbigh defenders asleep and McGuiness pace put him in the clear. As big Town stopper Azzy Hughes approached, McGuiness slipped it beneath him and suddenly you feared the worst for the hosts. To be fair, Town responded well and hit the front again only 3 minutes later. Craig Wilkinson, let loose in a more forward position, skimmed a defender, crossed low into the box and Vernon did the rest. Denbigh were now flying and Vernon doubled his account on 83 minutes from Kevin Evans ball after a sequence of short passes in and around the area. Hotspur were dead and buried. On 87 Vernon provided Evans K. with a ball into the box and a firm header beyond the despairing Mike Doutch was the cherry on the pie.

Five Star Flint Flatten Denbigh

 A Lee Acott hat-trick helped Flint Town to a 5-1 win of Denbigh at Cae Castell, reports Peter Glynn.

Steve Alcock and Carl Hodges completed the nap whilst Gary Madoc Jones registered for the visitors.

It started well for the Central Park side, holding a very useful Flint outfit for long periods of the first stanza, with Madoc and Ian Taylor going close in the opening minutes. And on 30 minutes they were rewarded with the opening goal, Gary Madoc gathering a ball from Taylor, shrugging aside a defender and slamming home for his third goal in three league outings.

That was probably as good as it got for Russ Pierce's men. Flint began to string some moves together and on 35 minutes drew level with a sharp volley from Acott, the same man giving the Castle men the lead on 40 minutes from a close range effort.

It was a tough second period for the Vale mob, and Flint increased their lead on 49 minutes when Steve Alcock tucked the ball home from a flowing move.

Acott sealed his hat trick on 63 minutes with a clever lob and a minute later Carl Hodges got his reward for an excellent performance with a well crafted goal.

01 September 2009

Denbigh Town grabbed a last gasp point in an eight goal thriller at Guilsfield, writes Peter Glynn.

Tim Nunnerly snatched a 7th minute lead for the hosts only for the Vale mob to storm into a 2-1 lead through the Evans brothers. But on the stroke of half time Richard Astley slotted home a leveller for the hosts.

Two goals in two minutes just after the break seemed to have condemned the visitors to certain defeat, but the Denbigh brigade lifted their heads for the remainder of the stanza and were rewarded on 85 minutes with a Jamie Duffy effort from close range. And from the restart, Liam Jones swept home to give Town a share of the points.

30 August 2009

Denbigh Town Reserves were held to a 1-1 draw against Llandudno Junction Reserves in a game that the hosts should have won, reports Peter Glynn at Central Park.

A solo Gary Madoc Jones strike - cancelled out by a close range effort from the visitors - was poor return for a bagful of chances created by Russ Pierce's men.

After dominating the early play, Town were awarded a penalty on ten minutes, but the Jamie Evans spot kick was straight down the Junction keeper's throat and he easily claimed the ball to deny Denbigh an early lead.

Town were not to be denied and excellent work by former Flint Town striker Ian Taylor presented Gary Madoc with a chance and the powerhouse slammed home in delight on 22 minutes. It could have been two moments later when a flag kick was bundled home by the same man, but the referee signalled the ball had entered touch on its way into the box.

It was all Denbigh at this stage, playing good football without making it really count. And they found Mike Hughes in the Railwaymen's goal in fine form.

The move of the match saw Lee Mason's perfect cross volleyed towards the net by the incoming Lewis Worthing, but Hughes was well placed to palm the stinging effort round a post.

Junction grabbed parity on 33 minutes when a quick fire breakaway saw Shone cross for Matty Hughes who was on his own-some in front of goal and the big fella couldn't miss. It was to be Junction's only clear cut chance of the game.

The second stanza was more of the same , with the Central Park outfit close on several occasions through Madoc , Worthing and Taylor but find no way past the impressive Hughes.

27 August 2009
Denbigh Town were bitterly disappointed to come away with a 2-1 defeat at high flying Llangefni Town, reports Peter Glynn.

Having gone in level at the break, the hosts inched ahead on 50 minutes when Robbie Williams netted from the spot. Just after the hour Darren Thomas converted from close range to double Cefni's advantage and on 90 minutes Denbigh grabbed a consolation through Craig Wilkinson.

The Central Park side more than matched the Anglesey side for long period in an end to end first half. Denbigh went close on 30 minutes when Kevin Evans slammed a header from a corner against the post, and then Stuart Vernon was left frustrated when his goal-bound effort was brilliantly saved by the Llangefni gloves man.

At the other end Llangefni went close on a number of occasions, their best chance denied when Azzy Hughes got down well to deny Darren Thomas who had been put clean through.

The Vale side were hoping for more of the same in the second stanza but on 50 minutes a Miles Todd challenge earned a penalty - harsh is the best way to describe it- and new signing Robbie Williams converted to put his side ahead. To add insult to injury, Todd received his yellow. Cefni now scented blood and on 64 minutes doubled their tally. Thomas got onto the end of a low driven ball and tucked the chance away with the Denbigh defence back-pedalling.

Assistant Manager Dean Martin was ordered to the stands for querying a refereeing decision a little too vociferously, Jamie Duffy saw yellow for a similar sin, but Town began to develop a rhythm that unsettled the hosts. Craig Wilkinson fired one inches wide after good work from Ian Evans, and Cassidy saw one thunderbolt deflected wide. Steve Jones threw on his subs and it was a classy move that provided the key to unlocking the hosts defence, albeit too little too late. Superb play by Vernon released Andy Booker whose perfect cross was met by Wilkinson, the striker rising like a salmon at the far post, dinking his header over the keeper to provide the goal of the game. Though disappointed with the result, Steve Jones will be pleased with the performance, the best of the season thus far.

Evans and Wilkinson on target for Denbigh

A late goal in each half gave Denbigh Town their first points of the season, writes Peter Glynn at Central Park.

Kevin Evans put Town ahead on 44 minutes but his side had to wait until the 88th minute to secure a hard fought win.

The game began with a superb chance for the home side to settle the early match nerves. In the first minute, Stuart Vernon twisted and turned out on the right, fed in a ball to the feet of Wilkinson who set up Bryn Jones but the big blond was head in hands to see his shot brilliantly turned behind by Lee Andrew in the visiting goal.

It was all Denbigh in the first quarter as the host’s senses nervousness about their guests play. Paul Edwards had two efforts balloon over when set up by Evans. Then Evans himself pinged one wide of an upright and next Wilkinson was unlucky not to connect with a great Vernon ball when the merest of touches would surely have converted.

Frustration at lack of goals began to kick in and Berriew sniffed a chance. Probert was put in by the impressive Webster and Town gloves man Stuart Griffiths - on debut for the senior team- had to stretch to keep the ball out of the net from the hitman's sneaky lob.

Miles Todd received his obligatory yellow as tempers began to fray in the heat, but on 44 minutes the deadlock was finally broken and it took a goal of art and craft to pick the lock of a competent visitors defence. Stuart Vernon - central to most of what was occurring in the danger areas of the pitch - beat a man, offered a dummy and fed a lurking Evans on the edge of the 6 yard box. A shimmy and the ball was flashed home at the near post. A fine goal by the classy Evans. The half time whistle sounded on the restart.

If it was thought that the Vale side would now kick on and secure an easy three points, Berriew had other ideas. The mid-Wales side began to dominate the early passages of play in the second stanza, in particular Webster and Probert were menacing, placing Denbigh Town on the back foot. And the away side must surely count themselves unfortunate not to have grabbed a leveller on 53 minutes when an astounding piece of play resulted in Todd clearing a certain goal onto his own crossbar after Griffiths dropped a hot potato under pressure.

It was Berriew's best chance and heads dropped a fraction. The hosts sensed it and regained the initiative and should have put the game beyond doubt on 68 minutes. Cassidy, who worked his socks off all game, burst into the visitors box, rode a challenge and squared one for Vernon. The midfielder took one - nay, two - touches and rifled one that popped back off the line to his feet. His second instant effort ricocheted to Bryn Jones whose fierce drive from 15 yards whizzed over.

Berriew threw what they had left at the Town back line, but found Sharples at his best in an impressive personal display. If anyone looked likely to score it was Steve Jones' men and on 88 minutes they sealed the win. Booker found himself clear and in front of goal with only the keeper to beat. Lee Andrew did brilliantly to turn away the dink shot but could only stare in frustration as Craig Wilkinson dabbed home from in front of the sticks.

21 August 2009
The Reserve derby at Llandyrnog resulted in Denbigh Town owning the bragging rights after a 4-1  result , reports Peter Glynn at Cae Nant.
Goals from Gary Madoc-Jones , Jonny Bowen , Gaz John and Mike Hinds gave Town the three points , with the solo reply coming from David Clayton for the hosts.
The game burst into immediate life when on 50 seconds Gary Madoc Jones latched onto a superb ball from Adrian Hoyle and the Denbigh hitman slammed home first time past Gareth Pope in the Dyrny goal.
It was all Denbigh to be fair , and a nuumber of opportunities were squandered before the second goal arrived from an unexpected source. Full back Jonny Bowen found himself in front of goal on 25 minutes and from a flowing move his firm hit gave Pope no chance. Next Hoyles and Gaz John had good efforts well saved by Pope as Russ Pierce's men in blue looked to be on for a hatful.
But Dyrny responded well and began to gain some ground as Town suddenly took their foot off the pedal. Excellent play on the right flank by David Davies presented Clayton with an opportunity and the youngster , still with work to do , got his foot to ball and in it flashed on 40 minutes.
It was now game on , and the second stanza saw the Villagers doing most of the pressing in the early stages without particularly threatening to score. At the other end Lewis Worthing was unlucky to strike a post after a sublime ball from Andy Booker, quickly followed by Gaz John Williams who also hit wood when it looked easier to score.
Denbigh always looked likely to add to their tally and on 80 minutes finally put the result beyond doubt. Worthing did good work out on the right , fed a ball into the box to Madoc-Jones who allowed the ball to run across his chest , gifting an open goal to Williams and the striker stroked home with glee.
The goal of the game fell to Mike Hinds , deservedly so for his man of the match performance. Booker again was instrumental in a move that saw the ball come out to Hinds 25 yards from goal and the Town man lashed home to cap a fine opening game for Denbigh Town Reserves.

19 August 2009
Denbigh Town slipped to a 2-1 reverse at home against Llandudno , reports Peter Glynn at Central Park.
Having taken a first half lead through a sweet Ian Evans strike , the Vale club succumbed to constant Tudno pressure , the visitors running out deserved winners with goals from Lee Thomas (penalty) and Toby Jones.
The first half hour had little going for it in way of goalmouth action , with Town's Arwel Hughes possibly the busier of the two keepers. But a little piece of quality on 28 minutes enlivened proceedings and resulted in a lead for the hosts. Darren Cassidy sprayed a ball out of defence to Kevin Evans in the middle of the park. His first time feed was instantly latched up by sibling Ian , who took one touch before rifling in a beauty from 25 yards , giving Andy Rooney in the Llan goal no chance. It was a well taken goal by the Denbigh number 9.
That was possibly as good as it got for the hosts. They flattered on occasions but as the game progressed , the Maesdu brigade began to take control and one felt it was only a matter of time before they got themselves on the score sheet.
The second stanza was all Llandudno FC. Only desperate defending and dubious shooting had let Denbigh off the hook , but on the hour mark the visitors deservedly drew level. A stray hand connected with ball in the Denbigh box and referee G.Vaughan pointed for the penalty , with Lee Thomas converting despite Hughes getting a hand to the ball.
Tudno scented the win and went for the kill. Toby Jones , Thomas and Hogg went close before a free kick on the edge of the Denbigh box sealed the home team's fate. Toby Jones curled one into the right hand corner , giving his side the three points and leaving Denbigh pointless in the first two games.
Final Score:  Denbigh Town1 Llandudno FC 2

Tough Away Day For Denbigh
Caernarfon Town away was always going to be a tough opening fixture and so it proved for Denbigh Town , who slipped to a 3-1 reverse after taking an early lead , writes Peter Glynn at The Oval.
The Canaries look like they want a quick return to Welsh Premier status , and with a side full of speed , grit and a tough attitude , they will be a tasty proposition this season.
It all started quite nicely for the Vale side. Sharing the opening exchanges with the hosts without really threatening , Denbigh somehow grabbed a lead on 15 minutes through Darren Cassidy , whose firm cross was caught in the wind and sailed beyond Mike Price in the Cofi goal.
A tackle by Miles Todd earned the first caution of the game , and though some may argue he got the ball , the challenge started some way back in the day , thereby giving the ref little option but to show a yellow.
Caer upped the pace and went level through Ashley Ruane. The youngster latched onto a lovely through ball and tucked it past the stranded Arwel Hughes on the 20 minute mark.
The game threatened to boil over after some tough tackles from both sides incurred the wrath of the man in black , and from one free kick on the right hand side saw Tom Walker put the home side ahead. The cross ball seemed to be gathered competently enough by Denbigh stopper Hughes but a Ruane challenge saw the ball squirm loose and it was between Mark Roberts and Walker as to who toed the ball into an empty net , with the latter taking the congratulations.
Denbigh were now at risk of a battering. Jamie Duffy limped off with a groin , Todd was called upon for some heroics to keep out a rampant Ruane and goal hungry Roberts. But Denbigh weathered the onslaught and began to ask a few questions themselves. Vernon twisted and turned but was unable to get a shot away , and from a rare free kick awarded to the away side , Bryn Jones received a sweet ball from Kevin Evans but his side foot effort scraped a post.
The second stanza saw more of the same from the men in yellow. Ruane should have made it three on 50 minutes but the youngster squared for Mark Roberts whose firm effort was deflected over by Sharples.
Suddenly the game turned and the visitors found themselves back in the game. Ian Evans thundered a shot just over on 65. Next a Sharples flick was volleyed over by a well placed Cassidy. And then Sharples himself banged a free header inches wide.
The Ovalites were always a danger on the break and after Ian Evans was brought crashing to terra firma by Price , a quick breakaway from the subsequent free kick on 80 minutes finally killed off Denbigh Town. Ruane found himself under little pressure in the box and after a few deft wriggles he slotted home to ensure the opening day points went to Caernarfon.

Rhuddlan Town 1-10 Denbigh Town
Steve Reds reporting from Pengwern Hall.
Daz Cassidy opened the scoring with an audacious back flick and shortly after tapped in to make it 0-2. Rhuddlan pulled a goal back when Denbigh failed to clear their lines from a corner. Bryn Jones restored the 2 goal lead when he took a quick direct free kick with the keeper nowhere. After a stern half time talk and several changes Denbigh Town came out and bossed the 2nd half with Ian Evans scoring after good work by Kevin Evans and Stuart Vernon. Vernon was next on the score sheet with a sweet volley from a Kevin Evans cross.
Then came the Rhuddlan og from a Kevin Evans corner followed by a sweet strike from Bryn Jones from a quickly taken corner. Ian Evans scored number 8 and 9 after good approach play by Craig Wilkinson and Kevin Evans.
Stuart Vernon scored the tenth with the outside of his right foot into the far corner after a plethora of chances were presented to numerous players.

Second Half Blitz Gives Bala Win Over Local Rivals.
Welsh Premier side Bala Town eased to a 3-0 win over local rivals Denbigh Town as the build up to the new season continues , reports Peter Glynn at Central Park.
After a blank first stanza , Colin Caton's men struck three times without reply in the opening quarter of the second half.
Goals from Ross Jefferies on 47 minutes , John Toner on 50 minutes and a close range effort from Marc Griffiths on the hour gave Denbigh  a lesson in finishing.
The opening moments of the game belonged to the visitors , with Osian Jones pulling some strings and setting up good opportunities for Toner and Griffiths.
Stuart Vernon and Ian Evans combined well on 20 minutes for the home side, with the former finding a forward thinking Paul Edwards whose first time effort was well gathered by Leon Bimpson in the Bala Town goal.
With a little more care in front of goal the visitors should have gone in ahead at the interval , but only 3 minutes into the second half Bala did find  themselves ahead , Ross Jefferies bravely nipping in to steer the ball past a stranded Azzy Hughes.
Before Denbigh had time to recompose  , Toner added a second - this following superb work on the right by Jefferies whose inch perfect cross was gobbled up by the Bala hitman.
The hosts responded by throwing on Craig Wilkinson and enjoyed a good period of play , knocking the ball to feet and finding their men with a passing game. But Bala always looked threatening on the break and after good work in the centre of the park from Mark Harris , Marc Griffiths had the ball to his feet 5 yards from goal and he beat an anguished Hughes to put the result beyond doubt.
The Central Park mob now had another good period of possession without really creating any clear cut opportunities. Kevin Evans had two headed efforts wing over. Darren Cassidy poked an effort wide and Ian Evans battled himself a chance but found Harris blocking his path when set to pull the trigger.
At the other end Bala possibly should have registered another after a flowing move saw Toner inch one wide but more goals would have been tough on Denbigh Town who competed in all areas of the park , except the most important - in front of goal.

Denbigh Town F.C. have spent 26, 856.00 at Central Park during the close season with hard standing around the pitch, hospitality facility and routine maintenance. More development is planned with priority given to floodlights (planning permission granted) and perimeter fencing.

Slick Denbigh Unlock Connah's Quay.
 
Goals from Darren Cassidy and Stuart Vernon undid Connah's Quay in a pre-season fixture at Central Park , reports Peter Glynn.
Cassidy headed home from a Craig Wilkinson corner on 4 minutes and , despite long periods of Quay pressure , held firm with Vernon crashing home the killer second on 88 minutes.
Both sides were at it straight from the off but it was the Central Park mob who grabbed the advantage early doors. Wilkinson tricked himself a corner and the same man swung over a beauty from the flag kick. Miles Todd rose highest and his flick on was nodded home by a lurking Cassidy at the far post. Wilkinson then tried to find Ian Evans with a deft touch after a magical ball from Kevin Evans had picked him out. Next Cassidy headed an Ian Evans ball over when well placed. At the other end , big Arwel Hughes in the Denbigh nets got down superbly to parry a shot wide. The Denbigh stopper held his own as GAP began to apply pressure and was thankful to see one effort blaze over after 39 minutes and another fizzer was gratefully grasped to his breadbasket.
The game was a tasty spectacle for the viewing public and continued in the same vein in the second stanza.
The Nomads began to dominate for long periods without really creating clear cut opportunities. Denbigh were happy to hit the visitors on the break , and with the introduction of Stuart Vernon were creating some anxiety in the Quay back line. Wilkinson was a useful outlet and the slippery wide-man was a constant thorn , whilst at the back Jamie Duffy and Miles Todd worked their socks off for the cause.
Denbigh have quality all over the park , but stand out performance must go to Kevin Evans for an immense display against good opposition who had not just come along for the ride.
The killer second sealed an excellent Town performance. Stuart Vernon found ball at feet on the right edge of the Quay box. He beat one and , as is his wont , beat him again and rather than go for a three timer rasped the ball into the net via the left post.
A deserved win for Steve Jones' charges and on this showing look to have a squad capable doing well this term.
 
Denbigh Man of the Match : Kevin Evans.

A Dean Hoggins brace - one in each half - gave Corwen Reserves an away win against Denbigh Town Reserves , reports Peter Glynn from Central Park.
It had all started so well for the hosts as after only 45 seconds on the clock , Gary Madoc-Jones raced onto a through ball and hit an early one that found the back of the net via the left post.
On 20 minutes Hoggins got the leveller. The hitman took a pass just inside the Town box , turned a man and slammed home past Stuart Griffiths in the Denbigh goal.
Denbigh possibly edged the first half , created some neat passages without really threatening a tight Corwen back line.
The second stanza saw Corwen have the lion's share of play and if anyone was going to pinch this evenly matched contest it was going to be the visitors.
And Hoggins it was who grabbed his side the win , chipping Griffiths with glee from the edge of the Town box.
Denbigh huffed and puffed but failed to create any clear cut opportunitites to grab a share of the game , but will be pleased with the performance of the returning to full fitness Gary Madoc-Jones who put in a man of the match performance.

GLANTRAETH RESIGN FROM CYMRU ALLIANCE
(04/08/09) Glantraeth have sent the following letter to the Cymru Alliance League Secretary: "It is with great regret that we resign our membership of the Cymru Alliance League. We apologise to the league management committee and the member clubs for the timing of our decision but it has become clear over the past few weeks as we have struggled to fulfil our pre-season programme that we are not in a position to guarantee meeting our playing commitments for the forthcoming season and delaying a decision any longer could prove even more disruptive.
We would like to thank the league management committee for their hard work and support during the period we have been in the league and wish all member clubs amongst whom we have made many friends a successful and rewarding 2009-10 season."

Denbigh Town's recent good form was halted in a 4-2 defeat at the hands of hosts Rhydymwyn FC, reports Peter Glynn.

The Vale visitors found the Welsh Alliance side a tough proposition, and were stunned in the early minutes with a goal of some quality. A seven man move eventually saw Sam Jones receive the ball on the outskirts of the Denbigh box, and the goal grabber spanked a fair beauty past a clutching Arwel Hughes in the Denbigh goal. Jones then saw his sweet lob strike the bar on thirty minutes, but the home side were rewarded for a good first half display moments later when presented with a spot kick, which John Hazeldine stroked home with confidence.

Denbigh appeared rattled, with a frustrated Darren Cassidy venting his spleen at the whistleblower after being on the receiving end of some rough tackling. Next Joe Duffy was blood binned when a stray elbow to the nose produced some claret. It was a tough old contest by friendly standards and Town were failing to make any impression on a determined Rhydymwyn defence.

The second stanza saw an improved performance from the Central Park players, in particular Adie Hoyles and Kevin Evans who began to use guile and skill to create some opportunities from which Cassidy and Vernon sought to feed. But just as Town thought they might be back in with a sniff; Bryn Jenkins volleyed home a beauty direct from a corner to put the game out of sight.

To be fair to the visitors, they never gave up. Kevin Evans struck the bar from distance and a minute later, from a Hoyles corner, headed down for brother Ian to slot home.

But straight from the restart Sam Jones regained the three goal cushion for his team, again after a move of quality opened up the Denbigh backline which was finished with some aplomb.

A Kevin Evans curler from a direct free kick reduced the arrears on 82minutes, but Rhydymwyn were well worthy of the 4-2 score line in their favour.

Reserves Tidy in 3-1 Reverse.

Liverpool based DOW FC grafted out a 3-1 win over Denbigh Town Reserves in an evening friendly at Central Park, reports Peter Glynn.

Graham Molloy presented DOW with a 2-0 first half lead. The big man firmed a header past Stuart Griffiths on 15 minutes and doubled his account on 38 minutes, being first to react when the ball came back of a post.

The second stanza saw the hosts more at the races and they reduced the arrears on 59 minutes after a sustained period of neat play. Lewis Worthing won a free kick on the edge of the area and Kevin Evans curled a beauty past the wall to record a goal of quality.

Reserves now had a good spell without really threatening, finding former Denbigh Town man Liam Byrne in great form at the back for his DOW side. And on 76 minutes the visitors put the match to bed. A long ball into the box evaded the Town back line and a brave Robbie Regan got his head to the ball to clinch the game at 3-1.

Denbigh Town 3-1  Ramsbottom Utd
Denbigh Town continued their impressive pre-season form with a 3-1 home win over Ramsbottom United , reports Peter Glynn.
Mike Sharples headed in a Stuart Vernon free kick on 21 minutes , and after Barry Massey had slammed in a spectacular equaliser on 40 minutes , an Ian Evans second half double - one from the spot - gave the Vale hosts the victory.
The Welshmen got off to a nice start with Kevin Evans shooting inches wide in the first minute and two minutes later the same man fed sibling Ian , whose first time shot was tipped round the post by Damien Rooney in the Rammy goal. Craig Wilkinson was proving a handful and the tricky wide-man latched onto a Benn Hughes feed only to see his shot skim over.
It was all Denbigh at this stage and were worthy of a breakthrough - and a free kick on the edge of the box was key to unlocking a sometimes nervy Ramsbottom defence. Stuart Vernon put in a low ball that somehow stood up and Mike Sharples reacted quickest to head the ball home for 1-0.
The visitors upped their pace - Massey was causing a few troubles and after one shot fizzed wide , the stalwart finally got his reward on 40 minutes. A sweet through ball fell kindly to him on the edge of the box and the big man turned on a sixpence and volleyed in a beauty , giving Town glovesman Arwel Hughes no chance.
The second stanza was more of the same , with Town knocking on the door but never really threatening up until the 75th minute mark , when Andy Booker broke clear after a great ball from Jamie Hobson , but the winger had head in hands when his deft clip was palmed away by Rooney at full stretch.
Town finally regained a lead on 80 minutes , Ian Evans hitting terra firma after an illegal challenge in the box and the same man dispatched clinically. And Evans completed his double on the stroke of full time , bundling in a close ranger after excellent work from Liam Jones.

25 July 2009
Ruthin Town Reserves recorded a 3-0 home victory of local rivals Denbigh Town Reserves , reports Peter Glynn.
The game started well for the hosts , with Deon Jones going close with a diving header on five minutes , and a minute later , the blues grabbed the opening goal of the game through Gwidion Ifan. The tricky youngster was first to react when the ball broke clear of the Denbigh defence and he calmly chipped keeper Stu Griffiths to record a goal of quality.
Denbigh responded well and had a good twenty minute spell. Ian Williams headed wide from a Gaz John inswinger , Rob Dawson broke his way through only to fire inches wide and former Sychdyn midfielder Lewis Worthing also had a pot shot just off target.
Ruthin were excellent on the break and after two opportunities went begging , thanks to good work from Craig Mackie and Russ Vaughan , but on 30 minutes Mike Garner capitalised on a short back pass and swept home past a lonely Griffiths.
The second stanza saw another good spell for the visitors , but they failed to hit the target , and were becoming victim to some clever Ruthin breakaways. Rob Dawson battled well to create two shooting opportunities. Gaz John riggled hither and thither but one got the impression that it just wasn't going to happen. Worthing created an opportunity for James Drury who was unlucky to hit the ball too well , straight down the throat of the impressive Richard Parry , the Ruthin shotstopper. Then Jamie Clayton got his bonce onto a Gaz John corner but was in agony to see his firm effort richochet off a Ruthin head to safety.
Ruthin always looked likely , with Griffiths denying them a third with some acrobatics on 75 minutes , but another was in the offing and it came from the boot of Jack F. Williams who finished with the goal of the game to give Ruthin a deserved win over their old enemy.

DENBIGH TOWN 3-3 COLWYN BAY
Tom McGill scored two goals and was unlucky not to complete a hat-trick as Colwyn Bay twice came from behind to draw 3-3 in their latest pre-season friendly at Denbigh on Tuesday evening, But defensive errors for all three Denbigh goals was the main concern for manager Neil Young. The Bay took the lead when McGill scored with header from a corner, but the home side were level at half-time when Colwyn Bay gave away a penalty after failing to clear the ball from a corner.Another error allowed Denbigh to take a 2-1 lead and although Colwyn Bay equalised when Ian Sheridan scored at the far post from a cross by Gary Scott, the Seagulls gave the ball away in defence again for Denbigh to take a 3-2 lead.McGill, who had a good match, then saved his side from a fourth successive defeat with his second of the match and was unlucky to have another effort cleared off the line."We forced a lot of corners and also hit the post in the second half after making a number of changes, but silly errors cost us three goals and that is a concern," admitted the manager. “We gave a few lads who have not had much football a chance tonight and now we will be sitting down over the next couple of days to look at possibility reducing the size of the squad."

Clayton Header Claims Win
A thunderous Jamie Clayton header on the hour gave Denbigh Town Reserves a deserved 2-1 friendly victory over Buckley Town Reserves , reports Peter Glynn at Central Park.
The Bucks had taken a 13th minute lead through Colin Talbot, and that was really as good as things got in a scrappy first stanza.
After the break the game became more of a spectacle, with both teams playing a passing game. On 50 minutes Lee Mason thought he had scored when his firm header was somehow scrambled off the line and behind for a corner. The resultant flag kick arrived at the far post and Jamie Evans was on hand to sweep the ball home from a tight angle to draw Denbigh level.
It was now the hosts in the ascendency, with Wayne Shill trickling his way into the box only to see his firm effort forced wide by Aaron Kinnair in the visitors goal. Next Mike Hinds was fouled when bearing down on goal and from the free kick, Town grabbed the winner. Gaz John sent over a peach and Jamie Clayton rose like a salmon to power the ball home.
Stu Griffiths in the Denbigh goal was called upon to keep the Bucks at bay in the final ten minutes. Good performances from Ally Stubbs, Russ Vaughan and Ian Williams.
Man of the Match: Ally Stubbs

22 July 2009

Stubborn Denbigh Town put in a hard working performance to hold Colwyn Bay to a 3-3 draw at Central Park, writes Peter Glynn.

The Unibond 1st Division outfit had a strong team on show; taking a 30th minute lead through a Tom McGill header and the same man should have doubled the score a minute later, planting a free header straight at Denbigh shot-stopper Arwel Hughes. Ian Evans put Denbigh level from the spot just before the break after Stuart Vernon was illegally brought to terra firma to ensure both sides went into the break all square.  Leigh Craven gave Denbigh the advantage on 55 minutes only for Ian Sheridan to level almost immediately. Darren Cassidy thought he'd won it for the hosts on 80 minutes but McGill grabbed his second of the evening to tie the match.

The game started well for the visitors , with McGill and Hopley immediately putting the Denbigh backline under severe pressure and with a little more care should have registered , big Rob Hopley in one instance firing over after excellent build up play. But the hosts also had their moments, with Leigh Craven and Craig Wilkinson worrying the Bay into an unforced error which Ian Evans nearly capitalised upon. An opening had to come and, after Bay forced a free kick on the half hour mark, Tom McGill stood bolt upright and powered home a header under no pressure, giving Arwel Hughes in the Town nets no chance. The same man should have buried another moments later, when a perfect flag kick was headed straight at Hughes who did well to gather cleanly.

Denbigh stuck at it and just before the break Stuart Vernon wriggled into the Colwyn box and, under pressure from a loose foot, needed no invitation to hit the deck and Referee Gray eagerly pointed to the spot. Ian Evans sent John Gann the wrong way to give the hosts parity and heart for the second stanza.

The visitors upped the ante after the break but found Denbigh in defiant mood. No one epitomised the Town effort more than centre back Shaheen Ahmed, and his partnership with Miles Todd kept Denbigh in the game when under the cosh. Hopley, Jebb and McGill wasted some opportunities to kill the hosts off, but such is the way of things that, at the other end, up popped Leigh Craven on 55 minutes and after gathering a poor clearance smooched the ball into the net to give Town an unlikely advantage. Back came the Bay, and straight from kick off Jebb put the ball on a plate for Bay's Ian Sheridan and the youngster side footed home on the volley at the left post. That was quality.

It was now nip and tuck, and after more Bay pressure Denbigh regained the lead. This game was in danger of becoming a classic. Chris Williams won a ball in midfield. He found a willing runner in Darren Cassidy and the speed merchant needs no excuse to go on a run, which he duly did, slipping past a Bay defender and slamming home for 3-2. Once again Town were punished straight from the kick off and McGill found himself in front of goal and the hit man found the net. Arwel Hughes tipped a firm Hopley effort around a post. Next McGill struck wood, but at the other end Ian Evans rounded the keeper after more Cassidy magic, only to see his return ball deflected for a flag kick. Honours even.

Man of the Match: Shaheen Ahmed - 100 percent effort kept Denbigh in the game when Bay looked most threatening.

Sky still needs reminding that they are being unfair to Welsh football in their showing of football results. So keep reminding them and other people in Wales. Papers - web sites etc

Welsh football, below the Welsh Premier league, have complained to Sky TV that they are being treated unfairly in the showing of football results on Soccer Saturday and Sky's internet Sports results site.

Sky show English, Scottish and Irish football results from various leagues but refuse to show anything below the Welsh Premier league in Wales.

Sky's Internet results service show results from various Countries throughout the World and Welsh football would like the same treatment as these Countries

If we take the English pyramid system, Sky shows the results from leagues as far down as seventh and eight levels. From Wales they show the top tier only. How fair is that!

Similarly they show a lot more results from the Scottish and Irish leagues than they do from the Welsh leagues.

Welsh football is not being treated fairly by Sky in their broadcasting of football results.

Sky are not treating Welsh football fairly in the showing of football results. WHY ?

Denbigh Town were held to a 1-1 draw to Glan Conwy in their first home friendly of the season, reports Peter Glynn at Central Park.
Things looked bright early doors for the Vale side when much travelled Craig Wilkinson headed home from a sublime Lee Craven cross on 15 minutes. Other opportunities came and went in a bright opening half hour, with Wilkinson inches wide from a flowing move involving the impressive Stuart Vernon and Kevin Evans, this being the pick of the action.
On 38 minutes the visitors struck with a well crafted goal, clinically finished by free scoring Chris Beardsmore, and suddenly it was the green and whites who looked good value.
Town were gifted a penalty just after the start of the second stanza - Kevin Evans hitting terra firma when trying to get his head to an overcooked Cassidy ball into the box. Man in Black Russ Pierce infuriated the Conwy based side by pointing to the spot, but justice probably prevailed when spot merchant Paul Edwards twanged the bar and saw his follow up ruled out by the second touch rule.
That was now as good as it got for Steve Jones' men. Glan sniffed a win and threw men forward in search of a second. The woodwork kept out another Beardsmore effort and Jamie Evans had to hook a dangerous looking ball clear after a mix up in the six yard box almost presented the visitors with a tap in. With changes in personnel, the game began to peter out as a spectacle. " We looked good, yes. But we had two clear chances and if we take them, then the game is out of Glan Conwy's reach. But we didn't. And they were then back in it. “said Assistant boss Dean Martin.
Denbigh Town have spent a total of 20,000 a large portion of which was spent in creating a tarmac surface around the ground perimeter in their latest improvement plans. A spokesman said a new hospitality unit has been added to the club house, and the next step will be to install concrete fittings for floodlights.
" It is all part of a year on year improvement scheme. Every year we look to add onto the work and commitment from the previous year. Visitors to Central Park this season will see a big difference to the ground."

Message from Chas Rowland (Cymru Alliance Secretary)
I have today been informed by the press association that Sky have no intentions of showing the Cymru Alliance league results next season.
I consider this to be anti Welsh football, they show English, Scottish and Irish results below second tier so why not Welsh.

Denbigh Town Useful in Defeat.
Rhyl FC 4 v Denbigh Town 1

New Denbigh Town Manager Steve Jones will be pleased with the effort that his charges put in against a hungry Rhyl side , who were looking to put in a performance in the build up towards their upcoming UEFA Champions League 2nd Qualifying Round tie against Partisan Belgrade , reports Peter Glynn from Belle Vue.

Some might say this was an easy win for the Welsh Premier outfit - others might say that they might have expected a higher margin of victory. The truth is somewhere in between. It looked as if it was going to be a tough old afternoon for the visitors as the hosts were immediately at their game , racing into a 2-0 lead after only 15 minutes. Goal-grabber Neil Roberts spanked home two efforts from just inside the box , and could have grabbed a hat-trick a minute later but for excellent work at the back by Denbigh newcomer Mike Sharples. At the other end Mark Roberts was working hard to give his side some respite , but on 25 minutes the home side struck again , this time ex-Liverpool youth Lee Holden pouncing on a loose ball in the box , the 20 year old firing home through a ruck of players with his left foot.
Both teams are essentially footballing sides , and though rusty on occasions there were some neat passages of play.
Town now had their best spell of the first half , with Paul Edwards picking out some useful passes. And on 38 minutes the visitors got their reward. A free kick on the edge of the Rhyl box was touched back by Edwards and Denbigh debutant Lee Craven curled a sweetie round the wall into the top right hand corner to record a goal of quality.
The Belle Vue mob were jolted into action and Jamie Hobson , assisted by Darren Cassidy had to work hard to keep first George Horan and then Matty Williams at bay. Another was coming and it duly arrived when Williams was first to react to a richochet and the Rhyl man fired home in glee for 4-1.
The second stanza saw Denbigh tighten up in midfield and in defence. And the Vale side could have reduced the arrears on 55 minutes when a bursting run by Paul Edwards finished with a smart shot which was brilliantly turned away by Lee Kendall in the Rhyl goal. Next Neil Roberts was head in hands when Denbigh's Jamie Roberts pulled off the save of the match , going down low to his left to turn away what looked a certain fifth for the home side. The Denbigh shot-stopper was at it again five minutes later , getting his body on the way of a Holden piledriver , and Denbigh were fortunate that the rebound was crashed against the bar by the incoming Roberts. It was spectacular and earned applause from the paying public.
Both clubs now took the opportunity to change personnel , and the game began to be played at a more leisurely pace. Gary Madoc Jones fed onto a Jac Glover pass but was unfortunate to have the ball nicked away when ready to strike. At the other end Jamie Evans had to head clear after an awesome ball by Horan created panic in the Denbigh box. With time running down ,the Lillywhites sought the nap but Rhyl's Greg Stones found Roberts in the Town goal in determined mood.

Reserves Rout Aston Park.
Denbigh Town Reserves eased to an impressive 3-0 win of Aston Park Rangers , reports Peter Glynn from Central Park.
Looking to build on recent impressive performances , Denbigh looked bright from first kick to last , and with a little more care in front of the posts , might have handed out a real drubbing to the Queensferry based visitors.
It was all Denbigh from the off , with Gaz John busying himself on the breakaway and forcing two good saves from the visiting glovesman. On 10 minutes Town were awarded a penalty , when the same man burst clear from a delicious Paul Edwards ball. A wayward boot inside the box saw the mercurial striker brought crashing to terra firma , but the same man had head in hands when his spot kick blazed wide.
That may have been punished , with Aston striking wood a minute later with the Reserves defence floundering , but at the other end the home mob should have registered with chances from James Drury and a fizzbang from the boot of Sean Moan which was deflected inches wide.
It was a matter of time and on 34 minutes Gaz John made amends for his profligacy , rifling home from eight yards following good work from Ian Williams and Drury. Gaz John thought he had sneaked another just before the break but his effort was deflected onto Drury who lifted a sweet lob into the net with the keeper clutching at air.
More of the same was dished up in the second stanza as Denbigh sought to put the game to bed. Chances went a-begging unti 76 minutes when Gaz John grabbed his second and put the game to sleep.

Today's game kicks off at 2.30pm not 6.30pm as advertised on this site until last night and also in the Match Day programme.
Apologies to all.

Reserves 1-1 Greenfield
Post match comments from Russ Pierce.
" Another pretty decent performance against a competitive Greenfield side, I felt we competed well enough to deserve a point Jamie needed to be sharp pulling off a couple of excellent stops and down the other end we created some good chances for ourselves, It's nice to see Paul Eds and Mike Hines back after lengthy injuries and hopefully they will help us move up a couple of places before the end. "

Penrhyncoch 1-1 Denbigh Town
Disappointing Denbigh in Dour Draw
Denbigh Town earned a 1-1 draw at lowly Penrhyncoch in a match that had an end of season feel about it , reports Peter Glynn.
The visitors dominated the early stages , with veteran Steve Jones menacing in front of goal , and the former Colwyn Bay centre forward went close on two occasions. Ian Evans spanked a twenty yarder into the Pen keeper's breadbasket , and then Gareth Martin slammed one goalwards only to see the ball ricochet for a corner. The resultant flag kick eventually fell to Mark Orme on the edge of the box , and the Town captain rifled home through a possee of players.
The home side countered and went close on several occasions , but at times the game threatened to boil over as tempers began to fray in the sun. Orme and Martin saw yellow for the Denbigh mob just before the break , and there was more bad news for Denbigh at the start of the second stanza when Sion Meredith found himself all on his ownsome in the Town box and he stroked home in glee to gain parity for the Mid Wales outfit.
The contest now became a scrappy affair , with little in the way of quality. Ian Evans dragged an effort across goal after determined work. Steve Jones sent over a classy cross that was begging for a Denbigh toe , then Hobson pinged an effort inches wide after good work by Stuart Vernon. The moment of the match came on 75 minutes when a marauding Meredith sniffed a sight of goal and lashed in a great effort which Jamie Hulse did brilliantly to turn around the post. If one team was going to win it , that team was Penrhyncoch. Denbigh threw on Gaz John whose persistence almost paid off but the quicksilver forward saw his effort at the death well saved by the Penrhyn glovesman.

19 April 2009
Penrhyncoch 1-1 Denbigh Town
Post match comments.
"Started really well with a goal by Mark Orme and had a number of chances to finish it off but it never happened. 44 seconds after the restart it was 1-1 after that they pressed for the winner but good defending and Hulse's good saves kept us in the game, overall a 1-1 draw was a fair result."

17 April 2009
The proposed merger between Gap Connahs Quay and Flint Town Utd appears to have fallen through because there is not enough time to complete all the details which are required by the FAW on 30th April.

WALES UNDER 18 SCHOOLBOY INTERNATIONAL

 

WALES vs NORTHERN IRELAND

Monday : 20th April ’09 : KO 7pm

 

 

WELSH SCHOOLS INTERNATIONAL FOOTBALL COMES TO COLWYN BAY

Welsh Schools Under 18’s will face their counterparts from Northern Ireland in a Carnegie Centenary Shield Fixture on Monday, 20th April, Kick-off is 7.00pm at Colwyn Bay Football Club, Llanelian Road, Old Colwyn.

 

In a game that is being hosted by Colwyn Bay Football Club with support from Conwy Borough County Council it represents the first international to be played in the town for over 12 years when Wales played Holland at Eirias Park in 1996. Being selected to host the match is an honor for the club and town and also provides a great opportunity for the football fans of North Wales to come along and watch potential stars of the future. Previous schoolboy internationals include Ian Rush, Mark Hughes, Kevin Ratcliffe and more recently Robbie Savage & Craig Bellamy who have all gone on to become full internationals and enjoyed very successful careers.

 

In spite losing their opening two matches, Wales beat Scotland 1-0 in their last fixture in Port Talbot and will be looking to add to that victory in North Wales.

 

Cllr Glyn Jones, Chairman of Conwy County Borough Council comments “Conwy County Borough Council is delighted to support this event and would like to thank Colwyn Bay Football Club for hosting the game and providing their excellent facilities. The game will provide these exceptional young players with an opportunity to showcase their skills.

 

The game will also feature a half time display from Conwy Schools representative teams and there will also be a raffle with the opportunity of winning a football signed by the full Welsh International side.

 

Admission is 5 for Adults and 1 for children (Under 16).

 

Further Information on the fixture can also be found on www.colwynbayfc.co.uk

 

WELSH SCHOOLBOYS – MANAGERS COMMENTS:

 

The Welsh Schools’ F.A. have this season put into place a  new management team for their Under Eighteen Squad under the guidance of Martin Evans who was the former Manager of the Welsh Under-16 Squad. 

 

Martin Evans comments ahead of the game:

 

“The results in the first two games against the Republic of Ireland and England were somewhat disappointing with defensive errors at set pieces proving to be costly. We dominated the first half against England with a much improved performance. This improvement was continued against Scotland and resulted in a well deserved win by one goal to nil.”

 

“The Northern Ireland team deserve great respect, by virtue of the results that they have achieved, but following a number of team changes that were made for the Scotland game, we hope to be able to continue to cause the Irish a number of problems.”

Denbigh Town FC succeed in FAW Ground Improvement Application

Denbigh Town Football Club has been successful in applying for a Welsh Ground Improvement Grant, which is sponsored by the Football Association of Wales. The club had identified areas needed for improvement over the last few months- and are delighted to report that their recent application gained approval in the last week. In order to provide added comfort for spectators, a 1.8 metre wide tarmac pathway right around the perimeter of the pitch will be created.  In addition to this, the two dugouts are to be moved to one side of the pitch. This is to comply with League of Wales criteria.  At present the dugouts are on opposite sides. Press Officer Peter Glynn said that the total value of the project is 15,538.00, of which 11,654.00 is Grant Aided by the FAW, the remainder being raised by local sponsorship.  “We are looking to improve Central Park year on year. Supporters and our visitors recognise the work that has already gone in, and this is another big step towards our ambition - promotion to the top tier of Welsh Football. “Mr. Glynn said that local support has been vital in securing the grant.”It is nice to thank all the local companies that sponsor the club and have advertising hoarding around the pitch. These companies have enabled us to apply with confidence and to now carry out these much needed improvements. The support from the FAW is also greatly appreciated"

Seven Welsh Premier Clubs Awarded UEFA Licenses

Seven Principality Welsh Premier League clubs were granted an FAW UEFA Club Licence at the annual First Instance Body Meeting, which was held in Cardiff today. 

The successful applicants were Aberystwyth Town, Bangor City, Carmarthen Town, Llanelli AFC, Port Talbot Town, Rhyl FC and The New Saints.

The Licence is a pre-requisite for clubs who wish to play in the UEFA Champions League or UEFA Europa League next Season. For the League’s Top Three of Rhyl FC, Llanelli AFC and The New Saints, it’s excellent news as they look to have already booked their place. It’s also a timely boost for Aberystwyth, Bangor and Carmarthen, who all play Welsh Cup Semi-Finals on the weekend, with the prize for the winners being a Europa League spot. 

The result shows an excellent improvement from last year, when all eighteen Licence Applications were rejected at this stage, although six were granted the Licence on Appeal.

FAW Club Licensing Officer Andrew Howard explained; 

"Last Season was a transitional period from the first to the second version of UEFA's stringent model, which really placed a huge burden on our clubs to meet the increased standards.

"The experience of last year has been a tremendous learning curve for them, but it's evident that they have taken the feedback provided by our Committee of Independent Experts on board and reacted this Season in the best possible way. " 

The criteria that the clubs must meet is a minimum requirement for all clubs in Europe who are hoping to gain a Champions League or Europa League spot for next season. Therefore, these seven clubs have gone through the same process as the likes of Barcelona, Man. Utd and Bayern Munich and it's a credit to Wales, that they have met the same requirements that are demanded of those European Giants.

"I'm delighted for the seven clubs concerned and in particular the individuals at those clubs, who have dedicated so much time and effort towards achieving this. Without going through the process yourself, it's impossible to comprehend how much commitment and diligence is required,"  Howard added. 

"I'd also like to praise Haverfordwest County for the quality of their application, despite not gaining a Licence today. They knew that there was one criteria that they were unable to meet until at least the close season, but they did everything else that was required of them and I'm confident that they'll be successful next year."

The four other clubs who were rejected a UEFA Licence today were GAP Connah's Quay, Neath FC, Prestatyn Town and Technogroup Welshpool. Six League clubs; Airbus UK, Caernarfon Town, Caersws, NEWI Cefn Druids, Newtown AFC and Porthmadog chose not to apply at the start of the process in August 2008. 

The clubs who were rejected a Licence have the Right to Appeal to a separate Independent Body, who will meet in May if required.

Stu Vernon had a Face / Mouth injury which kept in hospital overnight as a precaution this might keep him out for the season. "

Sychdyn 1-4 Reserves
Reaction from Manager Russ Pierce
"Three points at last the first of 2009 and well deserved. The lads put in a good shift we started on the front foot and never pulled back. A goal from Jamie Clayton (header) took us in 1-0 half time although they couldn't have complained if it had been three or four. Second half I was a bit worried as we were playing against a strong wind but the lads worked hard we conceded an unlucky goal deflection took it away from Chris in goal, the lads reacted well and Gaz John got us a penalty almost straight away Jamie Evans converted. Tom Davies scored and Gaz John sealed the victory. Jamie Clayton was excellent at the back and Gaz John and young Jack Glover deserve special mention but all the lads played really well. "

We picked ourselves up and got a penalty for our efforts which Hobbo missed  so instead of going in 1-1 at half time we were chasing the game in the second half.

Post match reaction from Manager Russ Pierce.
" Disappointing performance we looked and sounded really flat, not a nice place to go the playing surface was horrendous and cost us an early chance. We had a couple of early opportunities to go ahead one deemed offside by the ref who I think may have had a stiff neck as he continually only looked the way he was facing (for both sides) 1 - 0 half time and I felt we were still in it then they got their second Justin got himself sent off and that was the end of the match. Matt got us a late consolation. No game next week, no change there then. "

Reaction from Manager Russ Pierce.
" After an onslaught in the first 15 minutes were we found ourselves one down we slowly got to grips with a very good Prestatyn side I felt we were unfortunate to go in two down at half time. Second we matched them all the way Matt pulled one back on 80 minutes and we looked as though we could pinch a point but a mix up at the back allowed them in for the winner. A very good all round performance Joe Aherne made a good debut and it was good to see Justin back. If we play like this for the rest of the season we will soon climb the league. "

15 February 2009
Denbigh Town 1-1 Llangefni Town
Darren Cassidy's equaliser in the 89th minute denied Llangefni top spot. Denbigh were the better side in the 1st half although the visitors did create some openings but neither side were able to convert their chances.
Llangefni went in front when Darren Thomas headed into an empty net. Denbigh responded well by dominating possession and pushing the visitors back. Ian Evans was denied what looked a certain goal when Paul Whitfield dived low to his right and turned the ball around the post for a corner. Llangefni were defending deeper and deeper and looked and sounded nervous as they relied on pacey breakaways to relieve the pressure. Then came the fully deserved equaliser a right foot strike by Darren Cassidy into the far right of the goal with the visiting custodian rooted to the spot. Llangefni can have no complaints as Stu Vernon and Kevin Evans pulled the strings in midfield and kept Denbigh going forward.
Brief match report by Steve Reds.

Glantraeth 1 Denbigh Town 2

Report by Stan Strickland

Once again Glan can point to having just as much possession as their opponents but for the third successive game went down to defeat by a single goal margin.

There were fifteen minutes gone before the first real goal chance arrived as Gerallt Jones picked out Kevin Roberts but the Glantraeth forward couldn’t get his shot on target and two minutes later Denbigh took the lead as a well delivered free kick from Jamie Hobson was met at the near post by Gareth Martin and his glancing header found the far corner.

The home side replied on 22 minutes with a fine move worthy of an equaliser, Corey Sinnott swinging in a cross that Gerallt Jones cleverly laid off for Chris Evans to strike a tremendous right foot shot that was inches too high.

David Hughes and Gerallt Jones linked up well nine minutes before the break finishing with a shot on goal by Jones but he failed to get any real power on the ball and Hulse was left with an easy save.

With the first period entering added time the visitors delivered a killer blow as Ian Evans battled well for the ball out on the left before crossing for Chris Williams to meet with a powerful header that gave home keeper Marc Newbould no chance.

Glan could have few complaints about the scoreline at the interval the visitors always looking the more likely scorers but the Bodorgan side came out for the second period looking in determined mood and came close to pulling a goal back within a minute of the restart as Gerallt Jones set up a shooting opportunity for Sinnott but with Denbigh defenders closing in fast the Glan forward drove the ball wide.

This was better from Glantraeth as they continued to press but for all their endeavours Denbigh keeper Hulse was largely untroubled and it was again the visitors who came nearest to a further goal just past the hour mark as Kenny Burgess broke clear but was forced wide under pressure and three minutes later the home side almost conceded again as a poor kick from Newbould went straight to Ian Evans and the Glan keeper had to go full length to rescue the situation.

With twenty minutes remaining Town should have gone three up, Jamie Hobson clipping the woodwork when it looked easier to score after coming in unmarked at the far post to meet a Burgess cross from the left.

With central defender Gareth Owen now pushed forward Glan finally got some reward for an improved second half performance in the 75th minute and Cae Trefdraeth has seen few better strikes than the beautifully timed half volley from Kevin Roberts that dipped just under the bar with keeper Jamie Hulse helpless

The home side sensed they were now in with a real chance of retrieving something from a game that was beginning to look out of reach. The sheer physical presence of Owen up front, something Glan have so badly lacked, was making a real difference and Denbigh were holding on during the closing stages and had a remarkable let-off four minutes from time as keeper Hulse’s clearance crashed against a defender and only a desperate saving tackle prevented Tom Wyn Roberts sliding the ball home into the unguarded goal.

Denbigh were getting plenty of bodies behind the ball and despite constant pressure on their goal as the final whistle approached held on for the points.

Llansannan 1-2 Reserves
Reaction from Reserves Manager Russ Pierce.
"All we asked for this match was to begin were we left off last week and the lads responded well we created chance after chance and put Llansannan under relentless pressure. Dean Moss scored around the half hour mark and it took us in 1 up at half time the only negative of the first half was that we hadn't killed the game. Second half started the same and the pressure told when Paul Williams headed in from a Gaz John corner. That was to be the high point of the second half as Paul Williams got a straight red for foul language, a complete surprise to him and he was frustrated with the decision but that's another story. At this time a few of the lads were getting tired and Llansannan grew stronger and scored with around five to go, fortunately we held on for the points. All the lads played well Gaz John pipped the MOM and Dan Porter put in a great shift on his debut. To put a dampener on the win I have to comment on the poor performance of the official in my 20 odd years as a manager he was certainly the worst I have come across and I will be putting in a report to the league".

Reaction to Saturday's defeat from Reserves Manager Russ Pierce.
"Another disappointing afternoon at Central Park. We never got going in the first half a lack of confidence being the main problem and the whole team very quiet. 2-0 down at half time. The second half was much better and we pressed hard Matt scored to give us a chance but unfortunately they hit us on the break, which was always a possibility, and the game was over".

30 November 2008
More reaction to yesterday's match from Manager Tim Dyer.

"I think we have to be happy with a point playing over an hour with 10 men and playing over 30 mins with 9 we have to be, I think Jamie made 2 great saves to keep Ruthin out but if you look what they created over the 90 mins it was nothing although we also didn’t carry a threat in that department once we’d gone down to 9 men. I still felt whilst we had 10 men we had the upper hand and looked the most likely but once down to 9 it was very difficult to keep possession for long periods in Ruthin’s half so hence we played deeper and deeper. I would of thought over all most people would of said we deserved something from the game for what we put in to it.

I think the booking count was 7 to 1 if you can tell me we committed 7 times more fouls than Ruthin in the 90 mins I wouldn’t believe you. Star performers on the Day were all back 4 and keeper, Jamie Hobson in midfield Kenny and Ian up front. Although everyone played a part in a great effort".

Reserves v Rhuddlan (Sat 2pm)
Squad news from Manager Russ Pierce.
"No one missing this week apart from Gaz Walsh (suspended) so for the first time since we took over the squad is the same for two weeks running. Taking into account last weeks performance the lads can expect a different starting line up this Saturday in what is a must win game. The next three games will determine where we stand in this league as we have a real chance to climb the league but we must improve and return to the form we showed against Flint.
All the best to the first team on Saturday Ruthin will be difficult but if they believe in themselves they can come away with the points".

24 November 2008
Post match reaction from Reserves Manager Russ Pierce
"Huge disappointment on Saturday we were second best all through this match and we can't give any excuses we had a good team out and plenty on the bench. The coaching staff have tried to instill a way of playing, which the lads did at the start of our reign and now they have slipped back to their old ways so we need to find out who can play our system and get rid of the lads who don't want to, next Saturdays match at home to Rhuddlan is of an even greater importance now, losing is out of the question.The only plus point was the return of Craig Mackie who came on in the second half and looked good".

Denbigh Town v Llandudno (Sat 2pm)

Tony Davies will serve the last of his 3 match ban, but Darren Cassidy, Kevin Jones and Liam Byrne will all be added to last weeks squad. Gareth Martin will be missing as he only returns from a week away on Sat lunch time.

Big game for us our home form has been good in all competitions but we’ve only played 4 home league games so far this season half the amount of away games we’ve played but were on a good run at the moment 4 wins from last 5 league games.

 

16/11/2008
Post match reaction from Reserves Manager Russ Pierce.
"Up against it from the start when 2 players failed to turn up.
Had an early chance when Gaz John missed one on one then they took over. Danny Mac broke his ankle in two places in build up to their 2nd. Lacked quality and fitness caused by players having to be thrown in too soon after injury"
 

16/11/2008
Post match reaction from Manager Tim Dyer
"Great result and solid performance, we were better side first half and deserved a lead. They upped their game second half even with 10 men but we had the quality when we needed it, Kenny's cross for second goal and his finish for the third being crucial contributions. We would have settled for 3 points before hand with the changes we had to make. Steve Jones was terrific at centre half for us ! Hopefully we'll keep things going next week"

Post match comments from Manager Tim Dyer

"I thought we deserved the win although we made it very hard in last 15 mins. 

I wasn’t happy with the way we tried to close the game out we made rash challenges giving free kicks away and also didn’t keep possession well enough in the final third. But I guess some of that comes from the run of bad luck we’ve been having away from home, players were always going to get a bit edgy. Hopefully that will be the change of luck we need as over all I don’t think we’ve played too badly away from home just made a few to many mistakes.

Liam Byrne hopefully will be available Saturday and also Tom Matistock will be back in the squad, Tony Davies, Paul Edwards are definitely out and Darren Cassidy picked up a knock on Saturday so we’ll have to see how he is this week".

Post match comments from Manager Tim Dyer.

"Missed chances yet again proved to be our undoing, we just can’t seem to get in front in games away from home and then put ourselves under pressure.

We have to do better we made more chances than Mold last night and they scored 3 that tells it’s own story. Strikers have got to start scoring and midfield need to contribute better to that as well. All in all were not playing badly and I still fell were capable of beating anyone but current away form is a real concern. Highlighting that fact is the fixtures have give us 7 away games out of first 10 league games not helping either".

 

Tom Matischok is added to last night's squad for another away game at Gresford Athletic on Saturday.
