NORTH EAST WALES VETERANS LEAGUE PREMIER DIVISION
CAERWYS 3 SHOTTON STEEL 2
This top of the table clash was always going to a close affair.

Shotton threatened the most early on and took the lead after half an hour through Lee Cousins.

Things could have got worse for Caerwys when they conceded a penalty before the break, but Kevin Smart’s spot kick flew over the bar.

Midway through the second half, Caerwys were reduced to 10 men but they seemed to up their game in the last 20 minutes.

Rich Hughes saw a back header come off the bar, Daniel Jones shot wide and Antony Wearden headed over from six yards before he hit the goal frame with a great strike from from range.

With 12 minutes left a long diagonal ball found Gavin Hughes, who cut in and hit a low shot with his weaker right foot which went in off the near post.

Five minutes later a Nick Voyle free kick found Wearden, who was lurking unmarked 10 yards out to bury his header beyond the reach of the keeper.

It wasn’t over as the Steelmen drew level a minute later with a free header from Connah’s Quay Nomads legend Jon Kenworthy.

However, on 88 minutes, Steve Rowlands scored on his debut to net the winner and the supporters went wild.
