They also secured a 5-2 win against Saltney Town in the NEWFA Men's Senior Challenge Cup and, in the JD Welsh Cup, a 13-1 win against Montgomery Town and a victory on penalties against Nantlle Vale led them to a trip to Cardiff, where they were defeated 2-1 by Cardiff Metropolitan University.
HEAD TO HEAD
Since the formation of the JD Cymru Leagues in 2019, Gresford Athletic and Mold Alexandra have faced each other three times.
Mold Alexandra were the first to claim a win, beating Gresford Athletic 1-0 at Clappers Lane in August 2022 and then The Colliers beat The Alex away 2-1, through two Adam Hesp goals, towards the end of the 2022/23 season.
Gresford Athletic welcomed Mold Alexandra to The Rock last month, but the away side took the three points with a big 5-1 win in the 2023/24 JD Cymru North.
