Following their second victory in a row, making it 2/2 after securing a 7 – 0 win against Rhyl HC, Nicci Ashcroft, our Manager, had this to say:
“The Ardudwy ac Arfon 2nds team played their first match away today in Rhyl and came away with another astounding 7-0 win!
The “Small” green army showing less nerves this week and all glowing with confidence ready for the start of their league winning campaign once again. As the whistle went they made their presence felt on the pitch straight away, hassling the Rhyl side from the off, turning over possession and constant attacking play, they were awarded with their first goal, scored by Elen Parry, a cool young head, but becoming quite a deadly finisher in that circle!
Two more goals were scored by Bethan Lowri & Nicci before half time, making it 3-0.
It was a tough game against the young Rhyl side, making the the “small” green army work their socks off, which they did and were rewarded with a further 4 goals, 2 goals from Jaqs & 2 from Nicci making the final score 7-0. A sterling performance from the vice captain Moli in midfield, outstanding defence from Siwan Rees, Ciara & Bethan aka Betty reinforced by Caz our crucial GK. With our cool headed half’s Sophia, Kelly, Ellie, Jaqs, Megs & Gwen working hard supporting the backs and the fierce forwards Sophie, Elen, Bethan, Cassie & Nicci was the winning performance today.
Congratulations Siwan Rees for being nominated ‘Player of the Match’ from Rhyl AND ‘Players Player’ voted from the club today, thoroughly deserved!!!
Each week girls, there are no expectations from you other than to enjoy each minute that you are on that pitch, but you come out and work so hard and reap the rewards. You all amaze me each week with your standard of play and determination & dedication, and am so proud to play alongside you all. The future is certainly bright for our “small” green army!”
Congratulations to all of you who took part today, a fantastic start all round for Clwb Hoci Ardudwy, 2/2 wins for both our teams!
