Llanrhaeadr YM v Holyhead Hotspur Saturday 12 th January 2019

A Mel Mc Ginniss ‘special’ in the second minute of added time saw Darren
Garmey’s men gain a much needed win at Llanasantffraid ground against
Llanrhaeadr y Mochnant which will give the players some vital confidence for the
future as they bid to climb from the basement position in the Huws Gray Alliance
A club’s sesason can sometimes be turned around by on special moment and
Holyhead Hotspur will be hoping that Mel Mc Ginniss’s late late winner can spark
their own for the rest of the campaign!
With rival Bangor City the visitors the Friday night (7.30pm kick off) the team can
take great heart to hopefully get out of the current situation and although this
was only the second league win of the season it is a good place to start.
In truth Hotspur could and should have been ahead in the 90 minutes but better
late than never. The Holy Islanders dominated the game throughout and it looked
as if the winning goal would never arrive.
Hotspur were well on top for the first 20 minutes and on 21 Dan Mc Ginniss great
shot hit the base of the goal post with the kerper well beaten. While on the half
hour his brother Mel was just wide with another good effort. The second half saw
the front pairing of John Littlemore and Mel Mc Ginniss come close on several
occasions while the hosts chances were few and far between and keeper Carl
Jones between the sticks for Hotspur dealing comfortably with anything they
hosts tried.
Just when it looked as if the game would end in stalemate Hotspur were awarded
a free kick on the edge of the box. The hosts looked as if they had well organized
their defensive wall however ‘preditor’ Mc Ginniss somehow found room to
squeeze the ball through and past the home keeper who lyhelpless saw the ball
enter the net sending the away support into raptures.
Could this be the start of the Hotspur ‘lifeline’.
