FOLLOWING a promising campaign, Llanfair deserved to finish in the top-six.

This aim was under threat as the season drew to a close, but a 4-2 verdict at Llandyrnog made sure that Dylan Pugh's charges just about saw off the charge from in-form Ysceifiog to finish up in sixth position.

Llandyrnog made the better start and they were ahead in the 10th minute.

After receiving possession on the halfway line, Josh Jones took the ball deep into Llanfair territory before setting Craig Jones up to side foot his effort into the back of the net.

Llanfair's response to this setback was first rate and they were on the front foot for the remainder of the first half.

The visitors levelled things up courtesy of a fine chip by Jason Alexander from the edge of the box.

As things developed, Llanfair striker Llyr Morris was brought down in the box for a penalty to be awarded.

Morris had missed a spot kick in the defeat against Cefn a few days earlier, so the responsibility on this occasion fell to Huw Price, who made no mistake with the penalty.

Turning to the second half and Llanfair introduced 15-year-old Harri Williams off the bench, in place of Price.

Williams played his part in the next goal with a great cross into the box for Llyr Morris, who was once more fouled.

Chris Hardy stepped forward to convert the ensuing penalty and Llanfair had some breathing space.

It was the turn of Morris to find the net for Llanfair's fourth of the evening, giving him his 31st strike of a terrific campaign.

That wasn't quite the end of the scoring, though, and the most popular effort of the evening came when substitute Ethan Plumb pulled one back for Llandyrnog with his first goal of the season.

Reflecting on the evening, Llanfair boss Dylan Pugh said: "It was a good performance and hopefully we will do it again next Thursday in the Shield."

For the second Thursday in a row, Llandyrnog will play host to Llanfair.
