Football: Rydal Penrhos kick-off season with impressive win at Ellesmere College

Football stars at Rydal Penrhos kicked off their season with an impressive 2-1 win at Ellesmere College.

Mike Farnell’s side from an early setback to claim an opening fixture win, with a number of fine individual performances that are sure to give the team plenty of hope for the future.

Despite the eventual result it was the hosts who began brighter and their direct approach paid dividends early on with the opening goal of the game.

This provoked a strong response from the visitors, who missed a host of chances to level proceedings soon after, with Anton Holthaus coming closest after his fierce drive went narrowly over.

They finally got their reward for their efforts courtesy of the pacey Tawanda Harris, who prodded home from close range following a period of sustained pressure.

Things got even better soon after for the away side courtesy of midfield playmaker Matthew Trumper, who capped off a notable display with a neat finish to give Rydal Penrhos a deserved triumph.

Other performances of note came from the goalkeeping combination of Kieron Brogan and Lukas Foerster, while Jack Jones and Phil Nowak also caught the eye.

Mr Farnell, said: “It was a performance with great team spirit, attractive football and a never say die attitude, which was very pleasing.”
