U18 Football V Shrewsbury School

After a comprehensive defeat against Kings Chester the U18 team had a lot to prove. The team was determined to show they were better than the Kings result indicated. The game started brightly and Ruthin took control. This resulted in an opening goal by Taewoo finishing a good team move, this was then quickly followed by a second as Josh run on to a through ball and finished neatly to make it 2-0. Shrewsbury then pulled a goal back from a mistake and what followed was intense pressure which Ruthin repelled. Ruthin then had many chances to improve on their lead but these were missed.

The second half was a close game with Ruthin making it 3-1 as Taewoo claimed his second, Shrewsbury then scored on the break making the last 20 minutes a nervous affair. Ruthin held out to get their first win of the season.

This was a very good performance by the team especially from Iestyn, Osian, Tom, Oliver and Josh H.
