Double winners 2019

Airbus UK Broughton were runaway winners of the Huws Gray Alliance title in 2018/19.

The success brought promotion back to the Welsh Premier League, the top flight of Welsh football, after an absence of two years.

The Wingmakers then completed a double by adding the Huws Gray League Cup with a 5-1 win over Holyhead Hotspur in the final at Conwy.

Club information

Trailing 3-2 after 57 minutes, the Wingmakers equalised when Edwards volleyed past Hotspur keeper Paul Pritchard with the help of a defender's deflection. And, four minutes from time, the club's longest-serving player struck again when he converted from an Alfons Fosu-Mensah pass.

Both sides contributed to an entertaining affair on a snow-covered pitch which was rightly deemed playable and it was Airbus who drew first blood on seven minutes when Luke Busumbru headed home from a Wes Baynes cross. But the lead was short lived before Ryan Taylor brought the visitors level after some poor defending.

Damase Kiwanda went close with an ambitious bicycle kick on the edge of the box before the visitors took the lead when Mel McGuinness picked the ball up deep in his own half and went on a surging 70-yard run before playing-in John Littlemore who beat Andy Coughlin with an angled shot.

Airbus were soon level when Jamie Crowther's right wing cross was headed home by Kiwanda but only two smart saves by Coughlin from Taylor and Dewi Thomas prevented Hotspur taking a lead into the break.

But the visitors went in front again when a left-wing free kick from Keiron Hilditch found Taylor unmarked at the far post and the impressive wingman made no mistake. Once again an equaliser came quickly and the game looked headed for a draw until Edwards popped-up with his late goal to seal a welcome victory.
