Airbus UK Broughton went close when Ryan Wignall’s sent his effort into the Nomads side netting but the Wingmakers had very little chances in the Final.
With 10 minutes to play the host took the lead via Wes Baynes, a Les Davies cross saw a melee occurred in the box before it fell to Baynes who sent the ball in beating a number of Airbus players and James Coates in the visitors goal.
gap Connah’s Quay managed to withstand constant pressure from Airbus UK with the last five minutes and during added on time as the visitors threw in cross after cross and long throw after long throw.
gap Connah’s Quay will join Bala Town and MBi Llandudno in the UEFA Europa League Qualifying Rounds with the draw for the 1st and 2nd QR ties taking place on Monday 20th June 2016.
