Rhyl 4 Buckley Town 1

Buckley’s lack of game time, only one game in three weeks proved to be a major factor as they lost 4-1 to a well organised Rhyl team.

Rhyl’s first goal was well worked but then two mistakes by Buckley’s rearguard gave Rhyl two soft goals.

Jake Roberts pulled one back for Buckley with his third goal in three games.  

Another slip allowed Rhyl’s Piscorski to complete his hat-trick.

In the dying minutes, Phil Molyneux drew a brilliant save from Rhyl’s keeper.

Holyhead Hotspur 0 Buckley Town 3

Goals from Aron Williams, Jake Roberts (pictured) and sub Phill Molyneux took Buckley Town into the 3rd round draw of the JD Welsh Cup.

Holyhead started the game in the Buckley Town half winning most of the second balls.

Then against the run of play, a perfect pass from Jake Roberts to Aron Williams was coolly slotted away to put Buckley Town one up.

For the rest of the half, Holyhead pressed forward but did not create any clear chances.

The second half followed a similar pattern to the first. Then a moment of magic when Aron Williams received a pass from Phil Molyneux, put in a perfect cross and it was met by Jake Roberts who thundered it into the back of the net.

To Holyhead’s credit, they took the game to Buckley Town but the game was finally finished when Phil Molyneux outran the Holyhead defence and calmly slotted away to make the final score Holyhead 0 Buckley Town 3.

What a difference a week makes

This time last week The Globe’s pitch was waterlogged and unplayable. What a difference a week makes. Today the pitch was cut, rolled and marked hopefully for the reserves’ game on Friday evening against local neighbours Hawarden Rangers.

Thanks to the facility team, in particular, Graham Davies for their hard work this week.


Blaenau Ffestiniog 0 Buckley Town 2

A goal and an assist from Aron Williams and an early strike from Jake Roberts saw Buckley Town through to the second round of the JD Welsh Cup.

Considering the weather conditions it was amazing that Blaenau Ffestiniog were able to put this game on.

Jake Roberts opened the scoring from a deft pass by Aron Williams after 8 minutes. Buckley then hit the woodwork three times.

To Blaenau’s credit, they opened Buckley’s defence twice but failed to convert.

The second half saw Buckley struggle to dominate the game. On 69 minutes Buckley carved out their first real chance and Aron Williams made it two.

Blaenau Ffestiniog had two chances to get a goal back with one hitting the upright. To Blaenau Ffestiniog credit they never gave up until the final whistle.

Penrhyncoch 2 Buckley Town 1

With Buckley playing downhill at Cae Baker in the first half they took the game to the hosts.

After 15 minutes, the pressure paid off with a soaring header from Lewis Hone making it 1-0 to the visitors.

Penrhyncoch had a golden chance to equalise but put the ball over an open goal.

The second half saw Buckley well on top with Penrhyn’s goalkeeper Leigh Jenkins keeping them in the game with many good saves.

However, after a crowd disruption that seemed to spur on Penrhyncoch, they scored two quick goals through Steff Davies on 77 and 79 minutes.

Buckley will rue their missed chances.
