Football v Abbeygate College

Football – Ruthin U16 V Abbeygate College U16

This was a football match in which the team was determined to win after being knocked out of the ISFA Cup Competition by Abbeygate in September!

The team was slightly changed through injury and the additional of a  promising new U13 player.

The team started enthusiastically despite wet conditions. Ruthin took the lead with a goal from Josh (aged 13) followed quickly by another very good goal from. However, Abbeygate reduced the deficit through a set piece. Ruthin were pleased with their 2-1 half time lead.

In the second half Ruthin maintained the momentum and Josh got his hat trick. This seemed to spur Abbeygate who bounced back quickly with two quick goals to draw level. However with 1 minute to go Ruthin gained a corner, Josh crossed and Taewoo scored a majestic headed winner. It was a very good team performance, but Josh in his first full game was undoubtedly man of the match.
