Unlucky against Arriva


A draw would have been fair

Hotspur manager Mike Kelly will have mixed feelings about the match and the result convinced that his young squad can do better.

In a game of few clear goal scoring chances (and what there was was squandered by both sides especially a missed penalty in the first half for Hotspur) a draw would have been a fair result.
Hotspur battled against a more physical side in Arriva Bangor and some of the young Hotspur players will have found the match a reality check, and will have to be aware that that is what is expected of them week in week out in this highly competitive Anglesey league. Although Kelly’s young side played some attractive football all too often they failed to make it count in the final third.
Both keepers made some great saves and Luke Owen of Hotspur can be proud of his first outing in this league. It would have been a match with a much bigger score line if it were not for the outstanding display by both the Arriva and Hotspur goal keepers.
What was evident was that Hotspur kept their shape and the quality of the coaching shone through. There was some excellent football played and Simon Davies and young Harri Lewis had great games in mid field. In fact after the match the Arriva Bangor manager speaking to Mike Kelly stated that his team were very much impressed with Harri’s performance.
One goal settled the match and it came deep into the second half and surprised everyone as the teams seemed destined to cancel each other out.
A good first outing on the whole and I am quite sure that the results will go in Hotspur’s favour as the side settles to playing football in this league.
