Mold Alex 5 Buckley Town 1

Mold Alex gained the bragging rights in the Reserves derby match at Alyn Park with a 5 -1 victory.

The sides went in at the half in a well-balanced game that saw both sides have their chance to take the lead, most notable being Tom Gunson’s miss from the penalty spot and Adam Eden hitting the post before Alex took the lead for 1-0.

Lewis Hone was then sent off very early in the second with a straight red card and the whole momentum of the game swung in Mold’s favour. Buckley quickly found themselves 4-0 in rapid succession before going 5-0 down.

It was not until the 87′ that Josh Jones found the back of the net for a Buckley consolation.

Buckley Town 0 Rhyl FC 2

Goals in either half from Daniel Sullivan and Thomas Creamer saw Rhyl take the spoils and it is they that know move forward to meet Connahs Quay Nomads in the second round next Saturday.

Buckley Town were poor defensively and had no real cutting edge up front to break Rhyl down. In fact, there were few notable chances in the game as a whole but what there were fell Rhyls way, with the first a header from a set play and the second a fortuitous miss kick that fell into Thomas Creamer’s path and clear in on goal.

Much to work on then for the players and the coaching staff, prior to the first league game of the season against Porthmadog on the 24th August, as we will need to improve greatly on today’s performance if we are to prosper in what is the strongest line up of clubs at Tier two-level for many seasons.

Preseason Update

Under 16 Integration

We are pleased to see that last season’s Under 16 boys team have made the step up into our Under 19 / Senior set up going into next season, this has been a long time coming, years overdue!

Indeed, the retention of these players has enabled us to enter a new Under 19 team into the Flintshire Youth League for next season, and this is something which we are extremely proud of.  This is the first time the Club has provided a pathway for an outgoing Under 16 boys teams to continue to play football at the Club, and will hopefully be the stepping stone needed for our young players to successfully move from Junior to Senior football.

We had a number of our Under 16 players training with our Senior squad last season and we’re looking forward to working with them all over the coming season, providing them with an opportunity to continue their development with us and hopefully we will see them all represent our First and Reserve Team squads over the course of the season ahead.

Squad Update

To keep things simple, as Coaching Staff, we have retained all those players who we wished to retain and have added three players to our squad.

We are pleased to announce that midfielder Lewis Cunliffe has returned to the Club, Lewis started the season with us last season and we were sorry to see him leave, Lewis’ circumstances are now different and we hope to have him with us for a bit longer this time around!

Also joining the Club are forwards Sam Spridgeon, most recently of Oswestry Town, and Pat Hinchcliffe, most recently of Denbigh Town.  We’re pleased to have been able to add both of these players to our squad, both will add competition to our squad on a footballing front, and most importantly are great people.  Pat is the nephew of our former player and Cymru Alliance-winning Geoff Hinchcliffe, who I know is fondly remembered by many of our long-standing loyal support!

Taylor Morris bags his first for the club

Young Taylor Morris scored his first for the club on an impressive outing at Cefn Albion. This was a significant showing for our young players tonight against Cefn Albion’s first-team, with four 16-year-olds and two 17-year-olds in our squad.

They all played their part against a good team in Cefn Albion. Good to see that we are providing our young players with the opportunity to play and develop. 

The second goal was scored by another of our promising youngsters Tom Gunson.

With as many youngsters playing at Llay Miners Welfare on the night, this is good to see. Despite the result at Llay, there were a lot of positives to take from the game. We managed to get 90 minutes into 6 senior players and saw the debuts of Kyle Williams, Henry Jones, George Jones, and Ben Bartlett who enjoyed some good moments.

The performance of 16-year-old Alfie Jones was the particular highlight and we wouldn’t be surprised if the fans get to see him play competitively in the FAW Championship North this season.

Q & A : Chris Roberts

Kev Williams asks the questions in the latest of his series of Q&As with the most experienced member of our squad and home town lad Chris Roberts.

Q1. League winner, Cup winner and several European matches under your belt, but how does it feel being back home playing for Buckley Town?

Well, it’s my home town club so its a pleasure to play for Buckley Town, seeing the direction in which the club is going I feel there are exciting times ahead. There’s always a warm welcome from a very loyal set of fans which is always appreciated and I’m really enjoying it.

Q2. Looking back over your career it’s been a successful time, what memories stand out for you?

I’m lucky to have some great memories over the years with Welsh Premier League wins and Welsh Cup wins, but to make 16 European appearances and walk out onto the pitch in Champions League ties and Europa League ties have got to be the pinnacle, as they would for most footballers out there I’m sure.

Q3. Rhyl and Bangor are two of Welsh footballs biggest clubs, that must be an honour representing them two. Bangor fans even gave you a standing ovation as you where subbed when Buckley played there. How was it playing in the Welsh Premier and then in the Europa League? Let’s not forget dominating in some of the matches too.

They were both fantastic clubs with some great players and support at the time. The step up to European footy was much different from Welsh Prem as you can imagine. going from playing against decent Welsh Prem players to international footballers. But we always set out to compete and be in the tie for as long as possible and a few times it paid off.

Q4. Is there any standout players you played with or against that come to mind?

Played against Man U reserves a few years back which had Pogba, Lingard, etc but believe it or not I think Danny Drinkwater was the best player on the pitch that night. Ross Barkley and John Stones were very good when we played Everton in a friendly. Our very own Dylan Roberts stands out for me, goes about his business quietly but very efficiently and is a great prospect.

Q5. The Beckham-esk worldy you scored against Airbus. It has to be one of the best long-range goals seen in a long time. Was that your best goal?

I think it has to be one of my best, I was quite pleased with that and then Jake Robbo goes and smashes a worldy free kick in top bins making mine look standard.

Q6. What advice would you give to the youngsters playing the game today?

Be happy with your game and you’ll show your true potential. If you are happy you will be more committed to the cause. Enjoy it.

Q7. Messi or Ronaldo?

Both fantastic footballers but I think Messi just pips it for me. The consistency of the level he plays at is extraordinary.

Q8. Finally, a word to the fans…

Thanks for your support as always. The lads really appreciate every single one of you. UP THE BUCKS.
