Bangor Mail - - Sport - Mo­tor sport Foot­ball

THE War­ring­ton and Dis­trict Mo­tor Club make their an­nual pil­grim­age to An­gle­sey Cir­cuit this com­ing Sun­day, 30th June for the 30th run­ning of the JRT Enville Stage Rally.

The event in­cludes rounds of cham­pi­onships run by the As­so­ci­a­tion Pic: Neil Lam­bert of North Western Car Clubs, As­so­ci­a­tion North­ern Western Car Clubs, Welsh As­so­ci­a­tion of Mo­tor Clubs, As­so­ci­a­tion of West Mid­lands Car Clubs and the SD34 MSG Stage Rally Cham­pi­onships.

With a full en­try and ten stages cov­er­ing 50 miles, this rally prom­ises a full day of ac­tion. HOLY­HEAD Hot­spur tal­is­man Mel McGin­ness has ended his glit­ter­ing spell with the club af­ter agree­ing to join Porth­madog.

The tal­ented for­ward has opted to stay in FAW Cham­pi­onship North af­ter ini­tially agree­ing to re­main at The New Sta­dium fol­low­ing their rel­e­ga­tion from the sec­ond tier, with Port of­fi­cially con­firm­ing the news late on Sun­day evening.

McGin­ness was one of the stand­out per­form­ers in an oth­er­wise dis­ap­point­ing sea­son for the Holy Is­lan­ders’ last term, which saw him scoop Huws Gray Al­liance Player of the Year af­ter re­ceiv­ing the most man of the matches from op­pos­ing sides. He net­ted eight league goals through­out the sea­son for Dar­ren Garmey’s men, with ar­guably his finest per­for­mance com­ing in their im­pres­sive vic­tory over derby ri­vals Ban­gor City.

The pop­u­lar fig­ure has en­joyed a phe­nom­e­nal sum­mer as part of the Ynys Môn squad at the Huws Gray In­ter-Is­land Games tour­na­ment, turn­ing in a series of ex­cep­tional dis­plays and net­ted the win­ner to se­cure gold in front of more than 3,000 spec­ta­tors at his for­mer Holy­head base.

The news comes as a sig­nif­i­cant boost to a Port squad that has lost a num­ber of in­flu­en­tial play­ers over the off-sea­son in­clud­ing the likes of Ju­lian Wil­liams and Sion Edwards.

Port man­ager Sion Ei­fion said: “He (McGin­ness) joins us af­ter a fan­tas­tic week at the Is­land Games which will no doubt give him great con­fi­dence go­ing into the new sea­son. He’s a proven goalscorer at this level who is a night­mare for any de­fender. I’m sure he’ll grow to be a favourite with the Port faith­ful.”
