DENBIGH Town Rhinos U-15s' woes against the league's older sides continued as Prestatyn Celtic U-16s struck a glut of quick-fire goals to run out with a flattering 9-2 success.

Down to a bare XI due to injuries, Denbigh started the first 20 minutes very well, with half-chances for Jake Roberts and Iwan Moores.

Celtic were struggling to find away past the inspired keeping of Jake Jones, who produced a string of saves to show why he is so highly rated.

Five goals in just five minutes turned the game on its head, though, as two lucky ricocheted strikes and two questionable goals saw Celtic power ahead.

Roberts did pull one back by finishing off a fine Moores' cross and James Thomas cut-back.

Once again, Denbigh started the half brightly after the interval, looking far more solid and tenacious with a tactical change, but once again Celtic struck repeatedly in a four-minute period.

A fine set-piece goal was sandwiched between two goals that had Denbigh's defence protesting offside once more.

Jake Roberts' strike was a lovely consolation as Denbigh worked hard to bridge the gap against a high-flying Prestatyn team.

Denbigh's man of the match was the tireless Cian Evans, pipping the rest of the excellent back four of Bradley Roberts, Jake D. Roberts and Geth Rogers.
