DANNY JELLICOE believes Corwen’s entertaining draw at Guilsfield is another indication his side are adapting to life in the second tier.

A brace from Dale Davies and Ryan Billington’s opener earned Corwen a share of the spoils as they came away from Guilsfield with a 3-3 draw.

The point saw Corwen climb off the bottom of the table and left Jellicoe full of encouragement.

“I would definitely have taken a point before the game,” said the Corwen boss. “But the lads are realising that you have to do things properly to get a result in this league and you will be punished for every mistake. We are creating chances and scoring goals now, which is great and it was good to get a point from our third away game in seven days.”

Corwen had led 3-1 a minute into the second period, but Adam Jenkins completed a hat-trick for Guilsfield, who had the chance to snatch victory from the penalty spot.

Stopper Dylan Jones was up to the challenge, however, keeping out Adam Davies’ spot-kick to secure Corwen a deserved point.

“If we’d lost 4-3 it would have been a real kick in the teeth,” added Jellicoe. “Guilsfield are a good team though and it was pleasing to get something from the game.”

Porthmadog replaced Corwen at the foot of the table following their 4-1 thumping at Llandudno.

Danny Hughes, Anthony Marshall, Brian Roberts and Dean Seager made it an unhappy 90 minutes for Porthmadog, who saw Josh Banks net their consolation.

Porthmadog boss Sion Eifion Jones took to Twitter to apologise for his side’s display, writing: “Simply not good enough. Apologies to all @CPDPorthmadogFC fans for today and the shocking start we’ve made to the season. Sleeves up and get out of this poor run ASAP.”
