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.
