Welsh National League Reserves Division

Chirk AAA 4

Buckley Town 3

Chirk AAAs Reserves got off to a great start under new manager Dan Hughes after taking three points from an entertaining seven-goal thriller at home against Buckley Town.

It was the perfect start for Hughes with his side taking an early two-goal lead through Ryan Leightwood and Matthew Cooke.

The visitors refused to make it an easy afternoon for Chirk however, and answered back with two goals of their own thanks to Lewis Marley and Liam Scofield, sending the sides into the break tied at 2-2.

A very tense second half looked as though it was heading for a stalemate, until Caleb Davies, who returned to Chirk following a brief spell at Llangollen, fired home a great goal to put his side a goal to the good.

After breaking away down the right of the pitch, a long-range effort was stopped by the visiting keeper, before Davies met the ball with a spectacular overhead kick that found the net.

With five minutes left to play, Scofield grabbed his second goal of the afternoon to equalise for Buckley.

The visitors looked as though they would be taking home a share of the points, however Hughes’ side continued to attack and were rewarded in the last few moments of the game.

After an impressive performance at centre back, Jordan Owen was the man to separate the sides after he got on the end of Tom Roberts’ driven free kick to fire home from close range in the last minute.

Owen was awarded the man of the match award for his solid display at the back.

The Colliers took an important three points and moved ahead of their opponents in the table.
