FOUR months after surviving a serious threat to their survival, Prestatyn Town were crowned champions of the Huws Gray Alliance.

The Seasiders' managed to raise in excess of £53,000 in November to fend-off a winding-up order from HMRC and are now contemplating a return to the Welsh Premier League, subject to gaining the FAW domestic licence, two years after being relegated.

A solitary goal from Reece Fairhurst at Bastion Gardens was sufficient to defeat Gresford Athletic and secure the trophy for Neil Gibson's side, who have lost just one of their 26 games this season.

Llanfair United improved on their 7-0 Welsh Cup thrashing at the hands of Caernarfon Town, but still lost 2-1 to the second-placed Canaries, whose goals came from Danny Sullivan and Darren Thomas, with Paul Griffiths drawing the hosts level.

Elsewhere, Porthmadog lost 2-1 at home to Caersws after leading through a Cai Jones goal until the final minute. Josh Hartrick put the Bluebirds level before Sean Evans snatched the winner with virtually the last kick of the game. Flint Town United were held to a 1-1 home draw by Penrhyncoch, James Hooper's 20th-minute goal for the Silkmen cancelled out by a Sion Meredith equaliser.

Holywell Town took an early lead through Jamie McDaid, but Guilsfield levelled with a Jake Cook penalty before Jon Jones scored five minutes from time to secure the points for the hosts. Denbigh Town continued their recent improvement in form with a 3-1 win at Holyhead Hotspur with goals from Ben Nash, a Craig Pritchard penalty and Jake Eyre.

Buckley Town won a relegation scrap with a stoppage-time Joel Haack winner at Conwy Borough while, in another basement battle, Ruthin Town triumphed 3-0 at Mold's Alyn Park with Tom Sharples, Jordon McCarter and Llyr Morris goals.
