Goalkeeping coach John Birt will be able to claim a 100% record in management after seeing Chasetown FC win 3-0 against Colwyn Bay.

Former player Birt was at the helm as manager Scott Dundas served a stadium ban.

There were no signs that the change had disrupted the Scholars as they had the first attempt at goal in an even opening with Will Whieldon trying his luck from long range, only for Bay keeper Paddy Rutter to kick the ball away. 

The hosts went close again following neat build up play between Whieldon and Tom Hill but the striker failed to trouble Rutter. 

Chasetown deservedly took the lead five minutes before half time. Academy star Liam Kirton received the ball inside the box and fired into the top corner of the net on the turn.

Kirton made it 2-0 in the 70th minute. He received the ball on the edge of the box and drilled a low shot beyond the reach of Rutter. 

The hosts stretched their lead with a clinical third goal. Whieldon broke into the box and chipped up to the far post where Tom Hill headed home unmarked.
