Llanrhaeadr 1 Buckley Town 2

In recent weeks Buckley Town seem to have been most effective at getting results when playing away from home and so it was at Llanrhaeadr as the Claymen ground out a 2-1 win.

They rode their luck at times early on but the main talking points of the first half were two challenges just before the interval that may have gone against Buckley, firstly when keeper Joe Makaruk took down his opponent outside the box only to receive a yellow card and then a blatant penalty appeal by Llanrhaeadr that was turned down by the officials when it would have seemed easier to give it. Few would have questioned it and the sides went in level.

Buckley dominated the early play in the second half and this came to fruition when Jake Roberts found Phill Molyneux on the right edge of the six-yard box and the veteran striker pivoted to volley home.

Buckley continued to press and looked the more likely to add to their lead but it was Llanrhaeadr that managed to bring things level when Dan Graham was allowed to hold the ball with his back to goal and whilst the Buckley defence stood off him he turned and shot in one movement for a well-taken goal.

Buckley again pressed for the winner but it was not until the 89th minute that Phill Molyneux found himself put through one and one with the keeper who desperately tried to stop him but, in his efforts to do so, dragged the striker down. Up stepped Aled Bellis to fire the ball home from the spot and Buckley closed the game out without further incident.

An excellent performance on the road by the Claymen against the side 5th in the league prior to kick-off and one that will allow them to take some momentum into Tuesday nights home fixture against Bangor City.

Mold Alex 1 Buckley Town 0

A howling wind down the ground made anything of quality in the final third difficult as both sides struggled to master the wind and as a result, the game was not a spectacle of any sort.

Both sides battled for what they received and had spells of domination within each half but it was Mold that found the better chances and it Buckley’s Jack Edwards that was the busier of the two keepers during the game.

Mold Alex scored the only goal of the game to win the bragging rights with a strike from James Ratcliffe in the 75th minute and it is they that progress to the semi-final of the competition.

Callum Humphries signs for Widnes FC

Callum Humphries will be leaving the club this week, after completing a transfer to the Northern Premier League club, Widnes FC.

Callum joined the club at the start of the 2018-19 season following our promotion to the JD Cymru North and has played an integral role in our effort to bring some stability to our on-field affairs and retain our Tier 2 status.

Dan Moore said, ‘Callum has been great since he joined us. We’ve consistently received approaches from other clubs throughout his time with us, which is an indication of his levels of performance. He has huge potential and in my opinion, really should be playing at a higher standard.

Of course, moving into the English pyramid offers him a different challenge and route forward. For Callum to be moving to a club operating only a couple of divisions below the National League shows his progression over the past 18 months.

His transfer alongside Aron’s transfer to The Nomads, as much as they come at the wrong time for us, are a testament to the hard work of our coaching staff and the players themselves within our ever-improving setup.’

Everyone at the Club would like to thank Callum for his hard work and effort in a Buckley Town shirt!

Aron Williams joins Nomads

Aron Williams will be leaving the club this week, after securing a permanent transfer to JD Cymru Premier club The Nomads.

Aron has been offered the chance to make the step up after a successful trial period with the Europa League qualifiers who are currently second place in the top flight.

Dan Moore has had this to say on the transfer, ‘Aron fully deserves this opportunity to test himself at the highest level in domestic Welsh football.

He has been an absolute pleasure to work with over the past two and a half seasons, we couldn’t have asked more from him. His attitude, application and levels of commitment over his time with us have given him the platform to progress as a player.

We have worked hard with him especially over the past twelve months to help him improve his overall game, and we believe he has improved significantly in key areas.

When you couple this improvement with the fact that he is probably the best athlete you’ll find at this level of football, he has become an extremely effective player, creating and scoring goals, and also contributing his fair share out of possession.

On a personal level I would like to place my thanks to him on record, he’s such an honest, hard-working person, who is willing to learn, and as a manager that is all I ask. I had to persuade him to carry on playing football three years ago, and I’m sure he’s pleased now that I managed to do that!

I’m sure he will continue to progress with the level of support he will receive as he moves on to The Nomads, he is a great example of how showing the right attitude can support players in their development.’

Everyone would like to wish Aron well as he leaves the Club, and thank him for his efforts in a Buckley Town shirt!

Corwen 1 Buckley Town 1

The six-pointer at the bottom of the table started with Corwen having most of the early play with three great saves by Buckley’s goalkeeper Joe Makuruk stopping Corwen from gaining the upper hand.

The game changed when Corwen’s debutant goalkeeper Keighan Jones failed to control a back pass and then could not recover from his mistake to allow Buckley’s Sam Spridgeon the simple task of slamming the ball into the back of the net.

With Corwen playing the long ball, Buckley’s defence ensured they had no more chances and just before halftime Aron Williams went on a wonderful run beating six Corwen players with his final shot flashing just past the upright.

A scrappy second half saw Corwen take the game to Buckley and it was they who were the more aggressive in an attempt to get themselves back into the game. Buckley held firm but were not the offensive force that they had been in the first half. Disaster then struck for Buckley when the referee finally realised, after a further ten minutes of play, that he had booked Callum Humphries twice and finally sent him off. The red card was needless and the result of ill-discipline and getting involved in something that there was simply not the need for. It left Buckley short at the back and ultimately would cost his side all three points as they were forced to defend against a Corwen side that could then make the number disadvantage tell.

Eventually, Corwen were rewarded for their effort when Sam Henry levelled the score. Their goal also seemed to change the momentum of the game as Buckley, despite playing with only ten men, took the game back to Corwen. The final ten minutes were eventful with Corwen’s keeper making three saves as Buckley Town pressed forward. Then with two minutes left, Buckley substitute Jake Roberts hit the woodwork with one of his free-kick specials and also went close with a second effort but with Buckley finishing the game the stronger it ended in a one-all draw.

Buckley Town’s Man of the match was skipper Joe Makuruk.

Buckley Town 0 Prestatyn Town 5

A rampant Prestatyn moved 12 points clear at the top after taking Buckley Town to the cleaners at Globe Way.

Neil Gibson’s side took the lead in the very first minute from a Ben Maher free-kick. Played in low Jordan Davies took a touch, turned, and rifled the ball past Joe Makaruk from the edge of the box.

The Seasiders had several other close calls before in the 36th minute Dan Roberts lost his marker from a Maher corner and scored with a bullet header to make it 2-0 at half time.

A great team move ended with Davies setting up Jack Kenny to tap home the third.

Ian Griffiths came on in the 70th minute and it was he who notched the final two goals.

Three minutes into added time, the striker rounded the keeper for number four and he soon added Town’s fifth.
