Airbus stop the rot at Latham Park

It has been a week of mixed fortunes for Airbus UK Broughton.

This result halted a miserable run of six successive defeats but they have lost highly-regarded coach Alan Bickerstaff due to work commitments. Player manager Gareth Owen acknowledged, "Alan will be difficult to replace and we are really sorry to lose him.

"Andrew Thomas has agreed to step in until I can find a replacement.

"I was really pleased with the lads' attitude today. We changed things around a bit and the first two minutes were a struggle.

"But we settled down after that, played some quality football and created a number of chances, one of which I should have done better with."

The Wingmakers went in front through Paul Hallows in the 63rd minute but prolific goal sniffer Marc Lloyd Williams levelled with a neat header two minutes later.
