DENBIGH Town moved to the top of the Ardal North West League with a comfortable 3-0 win against a hard working Llandudno Albion side.

In front of a crowd of almost 300 at Central Park, two first half goals from Paul Fleming and Jacob Barratt were followed by a Sam Jones strike early into the second half.

Town manager Dewi Llion Jones started with Sam Jones, Jake Walker and Jacob Barratt up front, with captain Mark Roberts forced to miss the game through injury.

Paul Fleming took the captain’s armband and he put his team ahead by firing in a strong low left-footed shot after 12 minutes following some impressive hold-up play by Sam Jones.

With a one-goal cushion, Denbigh continued to create chances with both Sam Tate and Jake Walker going close.

Several times the visitors threatened the Denbigh goal with long balls, but Denbigh’s back line of Mike Sharples and Will Ashley worked well catching their opponents offside.

As half-time approached, Sam Jones turned provider again with an assist for Jacob Barratt.

A great touch by the striker saw him lay the ball into the feet of Barratt, who slotted the ball home in the bottom corner to see the hosts go into the break with a 2-0 lead.

Having made two assists already, it took Sam Jones just six minutes of the second half to get on the scoresheet himself with a well-taken powerful strike to effectively seal the deal.

Denbigh continued to put Albion under pressure, with Keiron Roberts going close from 20 yards on 55 minutes.

On the hour, Denbigh made some tactical substitutions, with Moses Barnett and Lee Davey joining the action replacing Jake Walker and Jacob Barratt.

Shortly afterwards, Keiron Roberts and Sam Tate were replaced by James Thomas and Kristian Pierce.

Thomas had a great chance to make it four as he cleverly skipped the Albion offside trap from Lee Davey's ball.

The youngster was in a one-on-one with keeper Williams, only for his well struck shot to be expertly palmed over the bar.
