DETERMINED Dinbych U-13s were able to celebrate their first win of the season over the weekend.

The team from Caeau Les Phillips hosted Oswestry on a sunny, but blustery winter morning.

Dinbych had been a little unlucky in recent weeks to lose two tight home games against Colwyn Bay and Abergele.

On Sunday, they were hungry for a win and they played with passion, self-belief and no little skill right from the off.

This was in spite of injuries and illness having taken a heavy toll on the squad, forcing a number of players to adapt to unfamiliar positions.

Aron Roberts scored an early try after cutting inside off the wing and dancing past several Oswestry players to touch down under the posts.

Fly half Jac Moore then converted.

Oswestry hit back with two converted tries, before number eight Dion Jones pulled one back for Dinbych, leaving the score delicately poised at 14-12 to the visitors at half-time.

Unfortunately for the home side, Jac Moore was injured while Dinbych defended their own try line, meaning they had to hastily reorganise an already depleted team.

The second half was a different story, with Dinbych piling the pressure on Oswestry with wave upon wave of attacks.

Ollie Baines, Llion Jones, Anthony Brazier-Smith (playing up a year having recently joined from the U-12s), Dean Thomas and Hari Liversidge deserve special mention for the effort they put in to turn the game in Dinbych's favour, but everyone played their part.

Aron Roberts and Dion Jones scored two more tries each, either side of one from Will Lude-Thompson, playing as a centre for the first time.

The latter two tries were converted by Aron Roberts and Dean Thomas.

Oswestry only managed to score one try in return.

It was a phenomenal Dinbych performance delivering a well-deserved first win of the season.

The 41-19 success sets things up nicely for Dinbych, who host local rivals Ruthin on Sunday.
