Dolgellau changed their formation at the start of the second half which starved us of the first half possession we had. We still looked the more likely side to score in the second half, however, Tom Bevan made a brilliant double save in the 70th minute. Youngster Jack Cook made his first team debut coming as a replacement and showed some good touches in the engine room.

Full back Tom James scored next finishing off a good team move and replacement Adi Lawford added the final goal with a good finish after being put through on goal.

We had to play the last 12 minutes with ten man after Jordan Ingram limped off after a bad challenge.

Dolgellau scored a consolation goal in the last minute.
