Pip Baker led the team out as captain in what was his last league game in a green and white shirt. What a fantastic servant he has been for the club and everyone at Park Hall wishes him the very best for the future.

At the other end of the scale a trio of youngsters made their Dafabet WPL debuts, with Sam Ashworth, Aron Hughes Jones and Tom Matthews all coming on as second-half substitutes.

Scott Quigley scored a hat-trick.

TNS had the ball in the net twice but offside.

Andy Wycherley also saved a penalty!

Our media team had the problem of who to choose for the post-match interview. Well, we went for Pip as his 12-year spell at Park Hall comes to an end, but expect to see TNS TV busy over the next week when we catch up with the others.


The goals!

Ian Sheridan open to scoring for Bala on seven minutes.

Ian Sheridan grabbed his second on 39 minutes as Bala Town equalised.

Two minutes later, Stephens made amends for his earlier miss from the spot (saved by Wycherley), as he had a second bite of the cherry.
