Blues return to winning ways in style...

Rylands hit seven past Ellesmere Rangers as league unbeaten run stretches to a seventh game...

Rylands bounced back from the previous week’s cup disappointment on Saturday, hitting seven goals past Ellesmere Rangers to extend their unbeaten league run to seventh successive game.

The blues started quickly and took the lead after just six minutes when Jay White was set through clear on goal and slotted the ball under the ‘keeper and in to the back of the net.

Soon after, the hosts had chances to double the lead when Liam Moran volleyed over the bar from the edge of the box after a header down from a free kick, before he had a second chance two minutes later after racing in to the box from the right hand side but the ‘keeper was quick off his line and saved down low.

Moran had another opportunity after twenty-five minutes, after another surging run from the right but he fired straight at Cowderoy between the sticks.

The Ellesmere stopper was called in to action again a minute later, when making a terrific diving save to tip over the crossbar from Warren Gerrard’s long-range drive.

Rylands got their reward in the thirty-fifth minute when Stuart Wellstead got in behind down the left hand side and crossed for White who headed home to double the lead.

The blues found time for one more before the interval when White returned the favour with a low driven cross from the right for Wellstead who finished on the slide in the forty-third minute.

On the stroke of half-time, Ellesmere were reduced to ten men after Seth Ellis was sent off for a high challenge on Gerrard.

HALF TIME – Rylands 3 v 0 Ellesmere Rangers

The second half started slowly, with few incidents to report before the fifty-seventh minute when the hosts netted a fourth with another brilliant goal. Debutant Tom Freeman found space on the left and whipped in a perfect cross that found White at the back post to head past the scrambling ‘keeper and complete his hat-trick.

It should have been five on the hour mark after White raced down the right and squared for Wellstead who fired over the bar from six yards.

The fifth did come shortly after after good work from Wellstead found Steve Boothman in the box who fired in to the bottom corner.

Brad Williams returned from a lengthy injury with twenty minutes to go and was immediately in the thick of the action down the right hand side and in the eighty-first minute he surged in to the box and was brought down by the chasing defender. Boothman stepped up and was denied by a good save from Cowderoy down to his right, but the rebound found its way to Williams who converted in to an empty net.

The blues continued to pile on the pressure. Fraser Ablett cut in from the right and unleashed a dipping effort from twenty-five yards that hit the crossbar and bounced down to Moran who was flagged offside., before Freeman later found himself in space in the box and fired past the ‘keeper but the recovering defender was on hand to clear off the line.

The seventh came in stoppage time when Williams crossed for the unmarked Boothman who rose and headed home.

Managers Verdict:
“I thought we started the game very well, with the lads determined to make amends for last weeks’ poor performance. It didn’t take us long to open the scoring and you could see the confidence grow in the team throughout. Some of the football we played at times was a pleasure to watch and some of the goals scored were top drawer. The quality on the ball was matched with the desire and determination to win it back when we didn’t have it. A brilliant performance from start to finish. Special mentions to Jay White on a superb hat-trick and to Dom Murphy who was brilliant in midfield on his first start for the club.”
