A Ross Stephens inspired Prestatyn Town have gone to the top of the Corbett Sports Welsh Premier League with a convincing 4-1 win over 4th placed- Connah's Quay at Bastion Gardens.

In a game which made League history with Malcolm Spiteri becoming the first Maltese to referee a match, the Seasiders took the lead on twenty minutes. Stephens was the supplier as his corner was knocked down by Paul O'Neill for Mike Parker to hand the hosts the lead.

The advantage was doubled six minutes before the interval as Andy Parkinson continued his excellent run of form for his new club, as the ex-Aberystwyth Town forward struck the second for a 2-0 interval lead.

There was more to cheer after the break for the hosts as deadball specialist Stephens, struck drectly from a free-kick on 73 minutes and the midfielder did the same again with five minutes to play, leaving Nomads' keeper John Rushton with a sense of deja vu.

Teenage sub Rhys Healey scored a consolation last minute strike for the Nomads, but that is unlikely to make the short trip back up the A55 to Deeside any brighter for Nomads' boss Mark McGregor.
