Match Report

Rhyl end the 2016/17 campaign with a 1-1 draw against local rival Llandudno FC.

The fourth encounter between the sides yielded the same outcome as the other three games with the teams battling to a share of the spoils. A deflected cross gave Rhyl the lead in first half stoppage time before Jamie Reed equalised after the break from close range.

No sooner than the game began than it had stopped - Alex Jones and Tom Williams had to receive treatment after a nasty clash of heads which saw Williams replaced and Jones heavily bandaged before returning to the pitch.

The restart however did not spark the game into life and chances were few and far between as both teams, largely, cancelled each other out.

 Alex Jones saw his bouncing volley saved by Roberts before the Rhyl keeper, Crowther saved well from a close range effort (though the flag was raised for offside).

Just as it seemed the score would be goalless at half time - Alex Jones whipped in a cross which seemed to take a ricochet, wrong footed Roberts and bounced in at the near post.

Llandudno responded well after the break and tested Crowther with a curling shot before Jamie Reed grabbed the equaliser - slotting in from close range after being found unmarked by a low cross.

 Chances again, were few and far between - Josh Davies having close range effort blocked and Jamie Reed lobbing over from distance. The best chance however fell to Marc Williams who fired over after it seemed certain to score from only yards out.

The game though fizzled out into a 1-1 draw.

 An ultimately disappointing campaign for Rhyl who could not quite stave off relegation but who can take plenty of positives into next season as they look to bounce straight back up from the Cymru Alliance.
