ASA HAMILTON cut a hugely disappointed figure as his Buckley Town side threw away a great chance to climb out of the relegation zone.

Buckley held a 2-0 advantage over Bangor 1876 with only 10 minutes left to play, but in an amazing late turnaround, the visitors somehow secured a 3-2 success.

After witnessing Buckley’s eighth league loss of the season, interim boss Hamilton told the club’s Facebook page: “I told them when they went in at half-time, I said ‘boys... make sure we carry on playing the way we play’.

“They come out, they drop deep and then they start doing things that I haven’t asked them to do.”

In the ideal start for Town, Aled Bellis set up Connor Littler for the opening goal after a quarter-of-an-hour.

Littler went large with his second goal nine minutes later, with the assist this time going to Adam Smith.

Bangor’s hopes were boosted by Sam Jones’ strike 10 minutes from time and it was level in the 87th minute with the prolific Corrig McGonigle on the mark.

Then, in the 90th minute, McGonigle turned provider to set Jones up for Bangor’s winning strike.

“I don’t understand it, because if it’s working for you, why stop doing it? Why?” added Hamilton.

“First half, we’ve absolutely dominated. Absolutely took our chances.

“Conman (Littler) great finishes, over the moon.

“So, why not second half do the same?”

Airbus are the new Cymru North leaders on the back of their 3-2 triumph over Chirk AAA.

There was a nervy finish for the Wingmakers, but Mark Allen’s side came away with the three points from their 10th triumph of the campaign, moving them three points clear of title rivals Holywell and Flint.

Sam Baker had a shot saved by Ollie Farebrother and Kaiden Cooke’s effort went wide of the target as Airbus sought an opener.

The hosts did get their noses in front after 33 minutes. Cooke’s cross picked out Baker and he converted at the back post.

Chirk responded with an effort that struck the woodwork, while Airbus were able to double their advantage seven minutes into the second period.

A foul on Baker resulted in a penalty being awarded and Craig Lindfield tucked away the spot kick.

It was Lindfield at the double within 10 minutes with the Wingmakers’ third goal and that looked to be that.

Chirk had other ideas, though, and they were handed a glimmer of hope when Sam Rickett was penalised for a foul on Rhys Edwards in the box and Max McLaughlin scored from the spot after 66 minutes.

Tristan Lloyd grabbed Chirk’s second goal seven minutes later, but Airbus managed to keep their noses in front for the remainder of the match.

Ahead of the match, Airbus captain Steve Tomassen told the club’s website: “December is going to be a big month and we need to start with a good performance and hopefully which will take us into a busy few weeks.”
