A SPOT in the last-four of a knockout competition is Llannefydd's reward following a successful weekend.

The villagers are safely through to the semi-finals of the Lock Stock Van Hire Challenge Cup on the back of a thrilling 4-3 second round success at home to Kinmel Bay.

Llan were never behind on the day and they could not have wished for a better start, with Tomos Jones giving them the lead in the first minute.

Kinmel Bay weren't just there to make up the numbers and Lewis Moroney levelled things up after half-an-hour.

Two goals in the space of two minutes saw Llannefydd regain control of the contest.

Jac Gronow made it 2-1 in the 39th minute and this was quickly followed by Tomos Jones' second goal of the afternoon.

However, Jack Wilkins' 43rd minute strike gave Kinmel Bay something to smile about before the half-time whistle.

The next goal would likely prove vital to the outcome and it went in Llannefydd's favour midway through the second half.

Elgan Roberts scored from the spot to nudge Llan further ahead.

Jack Wilkins' netted his second goal for Kinmel Bay in the last minute, but Llannefydd held their advantage through until the final whistle.

Llan's man of the match was goalkeeper Ifan Roberts.

Also through to the semi-finals are Penmaenmawr Phoenix, who defeated Gaerwen on penalties.

Pentraeth will host Meliden and Y Felinheli head to Llannerchymedd in the other quarter-final ties, which will be played on January 5.
