Dolgellau Athletic left it late against visitors Rhos Aelwyd after back-to-back set pieces created a melee in the six-yard box where the ball finally found the net from a Gerwyn Williams header.

It was a very combative and competitive contest at the Marian with Dol edging it on the best chances created which weren't many on the testing surface.

Manager Rob Evans said: “I felt the team grew into the game throughout.

“It was gradual but I think everyone could see the belief was getting stronger and the boys delivered.

“The lads on the side made some well-timed calls and our talented squad produced the goods.

“A promising performance all round and we're all very pleased with the outcome.”
