Flint Mountain are the 2018-19 North East Wales League champions.
A thrilling 6-3 victory at Connah’s Quay Nomads Under-18s today ensured Mountain landed the title.
They remain on course for a five-timer, with the President’s Cup already in the bag and finals of the Horace Wynne Cup, Goals Premier Cup and Mike Beech Memorial Trophy to come.
In today’s tussle at the Quay, where Mountain needed three points to seal top spot, the visitors led 4-0 early in the second half through Jon Edmonds, Lee Messham, Marc Gunther and Sean Williams (pen), but Nomads were far from finished.
The young hosts fought back valiantly, making it 4-3 via Dawson Butcher, Sam Williams and Tom Weir (pen) with 13 minutes to go.
Mountain settled the nerves when Pete Martin and Jack Aitken added late goals to bank the points and the title.
Still unbeaten in the league with two games to play, Mountain’s three remaining finals are:
Mike Beech Memorial Trophy: v Penyffordd Lions (date TBC)
Goals Premier League Cup: v Acton (Tuesday, April 30, at Mold Alex)
Horace Wynne Cup: v Connah’s Quay Nomads Under-18s (date TBC).
In today’s other league encounter, runners-up Acton swept aside Brymbo Victoria 6-3, Niall Challinor with a hat-trick, Steve Powell, Luke Harrington and Kyle Coppack the rest, Alex Edwards (pen) and George Phoenix (2) replying.
