BUCKLEY TOWN are safely through after securing a 2-0 success at Blaenau Ffestiniog.

Jake Roberts broke the deadlock from an assist by Aaron Williams as Buckley led by a single goal at the break, despite hitting the post three times.

Dan Moore’s side were able to grab the all-important second goal of the game through Williams, the Flintshire side managing the rest of the contest to book a place in round two.

Corwen won’t be joining them in the hat for today’s draw after they were beaten 3-2 by Colwyn Bay for the second time in a week.

All five goals came in a manic first-half, Bay racing into a three-goal lead inside half an hour through Jordan Carrington, Tom McCready and Damien Ketley.

But Corwen refused to lie down and accept defeat, Owen Cordiner’s appearance off the bench and a change in tactic turning the tide.

Iorweth Jones and Dale Davies found the net for Corwen, who were unable to find a leveller despite their best efforts.

Caretaker boss Nick Jones accepted that Colwyn Bay deserved to win the tie, but praised his side for their never-say-die attitude.

“We didn’t get going and Colwyn Bay were really at it, they were head and shoulders above us and we weren’t at the races early on,” said Jones.

“But we made a change and altered our tactics, and we scored two goals straight afterwards to give us a foothold in the game.

“We showed great workrate, hunger and desire to get another goal, but we couldn’t manage to get one.

“If I said Colwyn Bay didn’t deserve to win I’d be lying, but when you have opposition fans clapping you off you know you’ve played well.”

Colwyn Bay director of football Neil Coverley felt his side were also worthy winners in an entertaining encounter.

He tweeted: “First half hour we won the game, two errors allowed them two goals.

“Deserved result, in the hat. Job done, great following from the Seagulls faithful yet again. #Seagulls.”

Rob Hughes scored twice and James Stead and Jack Kenny also found the net as Prestatyn eased into the next round with a 4-1 win at Llanrhaeadr, while Dave MacIntyre and Danny Sullivan handed Rhyl a 2-0 home victory over Llangefni Town.

Ruthin won the third all-Cymru North encounter as they beat Conwy Borough 2-1 courtesy of a goal in either half from striker Llyr Morris.

Salvatore Pascarella came off the bench to score both goals in a 2-0 win for Bangor City at Nefyn United, while Holyhead Hotspur were 4-2 home victors over Montgomery Town.
