Sevens heaven for Tudno sides
NOT only did all four of MBi Llandudno’s academy sides win last weekend – they each scored seven goals.
The Seasiders welcomed Newtown to Maesdu Park to play three Welsh Academy fixtures, with the under-12s first to play.
After securing a hard-earned point at TNS the previous week, coming back from 3-1 down to draw 3-3 at The Venue, Carl Nicholls’ side were determined to register their first win of the season.
Working extremely hard from the start, the U12s led by Tomos Hughes, who scored his first hat trick for the club, ran out resounding 7-0 winners.
Strong at the back and hard working in midfield, the side can take great satisfaction from not only the result, but certainly they way they passed and moved throughout.
Grant Montgomery’s U14s were also looking to get back to winning ways and did so in style with another 7-0 outcome.
Four goals from Ryan Noke ensured the team can move forward with confidence as they travel to Airbus in two weeks’ time for what is never an easy fixture against a club with such a strong academy set-up.
The final league fixture of the day saw Sean Eardley’s U16s produce the kind of performance which reflects the team’s strength and all-round ability.
Three goals by Jack Williams saw the boys register three points with a display highlighting the pass and move philosophy demanded from not only the U16s, but all of Llandudno’s academy coaches throughout the various age groups.
A 7-3 score was again a fair reflection on the difference between the sides.
Last up was the Welsh Premier Devel- opment fixture involving Llandudno U19s.
Mike Pearson’s side, containing many of Llandudno’s highly successful U16 team from last season, played superb football against neighbours Conwy Borough, three goals in 10 minutes before half time laying the platform for a 7-1 victory.
With Conwy fielding three established first-team players it was another first-class display from Tudno, who now sit at the top of the league with three wins out of three.
Academy director Clive Rushton said: “It proves the club’s aim of producing home grown talent is beginning to bear fruit, and a number of the side will unquestionably be knocking on the first team door within the next 12 to 18 months.”
Any players aged between eight and 16 who would like to like to become part of the club’s thriving academy should contact Clive on 07766 103781.
