Both teams victorious in latest Pre-Season Friendlies

11 months ago By Steve Roberts

Both the First Team and the Reserves were victorious in their games on Saturday afternoon.

The First team welcomed Winsford United to Halkyn Road, and the Wellmen were the first to find the target as Shaun Tuck gave us the lead. Shortly Afterwards it was 2-0 as Jamie McDaid continued from where he left off on Tuesday night to fire home.

The visitors then pulled a goal back before Tuck grabbed his 2nd of the game to give the Wellmen a 3-1 half time lead.

The second half saw Winsford United starting the better team, and they soon pulled a goal back to make it 3-2, then were awarded a penalty which they converted to level the scores at 3-3. With quarter of an hour to go, the Wellmen took the lead, when Shaun Tuck this time turned provider to lay the ball off to Steve Lewis who chipped the advancing keeper to make it 4-3, then on the stroke of full time, McDaid rounded off the scoring, firing home from a good move which resulted in Steve Thomas laying the ball off to McDaid on the edge of the penalty area who fired home to give the keeper no chance.

The Wellmen were made to work for the victory, and it was another good 90 minutes under their belts ahead of the forthcoming season.

A very young Reserve side travelled to CPD Llansannan for their latest friendly, and returned winners following a 3-0 win over their experienced opponents. The Wellmen took the lead on 20 minutes with a Jake Cooke header after good build up from Ethan Farren and Callum Pritchard. The second goal came on the hour mark when Connor Davies tapped in from close range after Callum Pritchards effort came back off the post. Kyle Jones completed the scoring with a couple of minutes remaining, with a cross come shot that deceived the Llansannan goalkeeper. It was a great performance and the Reserve side will look to build on that as they entertain Flint Town United Reserves at Halkyn Road on Thursday evening.

The first team are home again on Tuesday night as they welcome Tranmere Rovers to Halkyn Road, for a 7.30pm kick off, before completing their preseason programme next Saturday when Maghull travel to Halkyn Road.
