Match report
All the more credit in the face we were a goal down on 6 minutes which could have got worse, but knuckled down to come right back into the game that was a high tempo affair which the Hotspur players seem to like. Our pressure towards the end of the half brought reward on 39 minutes when Ryan Jones low effort took a deflection and beat the keeper. Hotspur were now dictating much of the play and on 63 took the lead for the first time, Kenleigh Owen’s stunning low gravity free kick 25 yards out speeding past keeper Louie Makin’s right hand and inside the upright. It was two goals in 3 minutes on 66, Kenleigh Owen marauding on the left sent over a searching cross into the goalmouth where Julian Williams timed his header perfectly to send it hurtling past the helpless keeper. His club Rhyl rate him highly and his loan period with Hotspur is proving we agree with them. Campbell’s men were never going to lose control from then on and progress to the last eight.

Elliott Smith was excellent between the sticks coming in for the injured Carl Jones and has a big presence, while Phil Williams slotted in so well with former Porthmadog colleague Rhys Roberts at centre back and Martin McClymont and young Nick Clark made significant contributions to the excellent performance together with the regulars.
