Ry­hall ded­i­cate ti­tle suc­cess to for­mer player Hew­ing

The Peterborough Evening Telegraph - - Neighbourhood News -

RY­HALL United have claimed a poignant Peter­bor­ough League cham­pi­onship suc­cess.

The Lin­colnshire vil­lage side lifted the Divi­siontwo crown af­ter se­cur­ing the point re­quired from their final match of the sea­son at Eye Sports & So­cial Re­serves.

They drew 1-1 which was enough to en­sure they hopped above long-time lead­ers Cas­tor & Ailsworth.

Man­ager James Shee­han, who reformed the club two years ago with sec­re­tary Leon Fedasch, was quick to ded­i­cate the ti­tle suc­cess to for­mer player Jonny Hew­ing, who died in March.

Shee­han said: “Jonny played for us in both sea­sons since we re­launched the se­nior side and his death rocked the club.

“We were de­ter­mined to win the ti­tle for him and we’re de­lighted to have done it.

“The whole club is thriv­ing at the mo­ment. Our re­serves won pro­mo­tion from Di­vi­sion Five and our ‘A’ team are com­ing into the Peter­bor­ough League next sea­son.”

Ry­hall cer­tainly had to work hard for their final point at Eye. Top goalscorer Ricky Pozella (a man who has hit 34 goals this sea­son) slammed a penalty against the bar be­fore Ry­hall fell be­hind from the spot.

But an own goal pulled them level and some ter­rific saves from goal­keeper John Feetham en­sured the cel­e­bra­tions could be­gin.
