Guilsfield 3

Flint Town United 0

GUILSFIELD ended Flint Town United’s five match winning streak with a comprehensive victory at Clos Mytton.

The corresponding fixture last season was marred by a red card for Guils striker Asa Hamilton and ensuing melee involving visiting supporters.

However the first-half on Saturday proved a tame affair in contrast with only the visitors appeals for a penalty on 32 minutes following a challenge on Mark Cadwallader livening up a tight contest.

Guilsfield led on 52 minutes with Stuart Rogers blasting past goalkeeper Aaron Jones from 18 yards after the visitors failed to clear their area following a spell of home pressure.

Guilsfield survived a scare when Cadwallader’s header was blocked in the area with Jack Higgins’ follow up effort also failing to penetrate the well drilled home defence.

The home side continued to threaten themselves with Steve Blenkinsop curling wide on the hour.

Flint made a second appeal for a penalty 10 minutes later which were once again denied while Cadwallader also fired wide after good work by Sam Hart.

However Guilsfield were not to be denied and sealed a satisfying victory with two goals in as many minutes.

With 11 minutes remaining Callum Bromley squared from the right for George Clifton to steer home and with the visitors still reeling Adam Jenkins broke through a rooted defence to fire past Jones.

Flint’s capitulation could have got worse late on with Jack Richards releasing Blenkinsop who was denied by a fine save from Jones but Guilsfield had already done enough to seal a satisfying victory.

GUILSFIELD: Jones, Bromley (Weetman), Parry, Rogers, Litchfield, James (Cathrall), Clifton, Ford, Blenkinsop, Jenkins, Richards.
