FLINT TOWN UNITED made it 16 goals in the space of four days by thumping Four Crosses 9-0.

Callum Bratley and Richie Foulkes both picked up where they left off in the 7-0 Cymru North success over Ruthin Town by scoring hat-tricks, while Alex Titchiner struck twice and Andy Brown, right, completed the rout.

Silkmen boss Niall McGuinness, who was afforded the luxury of resting top scorer Mark Cadwallader and number one John Danby, said: “It was comfortable and credit must go to the lads, who handed the game very well.

“If you go into these types of games with the wrong attitude then you can end up on the wrong side of an upset, but we took control right from the off.

“We scored early goals and even though we got nine it could have been more, which was pleasing.

“We’ve scored 16 goals in our last two games and that is great because we had the aim of scoring more at the start of the season.

“Credit must also go to Four Crosses, who didn’t start getting horrible when the game was out of reach.”

McGuinness can now look forward to today’s second round draw without any fear.

Asked whether he had a preference in terms of opposition, McGuinness said: “I’m not bothered at all.

“We are confident at the moment and in good form, so whoever we get will have to be very, very good to beat us.”
