Midweek ‘derby’ reverse is quickly forgotten as debutant Joel Brownhill helps himself to a double
RYLANDS recovered from a midweek defeat to Greenalls with an emphatic win at Billinge in Cheshire League Division One on Saturday.
Debutant Joel Brownhill’s double and a Ben Slater effort gave the visitors a half time lead before Liam Hayes bagged after the break.
Boss Dave Parr hopes the performance provides Rylands a platform to build on.
“The players reacted well after we spoke about the need to convert our approach play, which has been generally very good despite some disappointing results,” he said.
“As we have players returning from injury and new players start to settle into the squad, I am confident we can carry the level of performance forward and we have the quality to cause any team problems.”
Andy Moor held a speculative Billinge effort early on, while Jay Waldron tested the keeper at the other end.
Waldron’s free kick minutes later was only partially cleared and new boy Bronwhill unleashed a half-volley that flew into the net from 18 yards.
Rylands almost increased their lead when Chris Brown and Slater combined to set up Lee Dermody, but the forward’s attempt went wide.
Slater then doubled the visitors’ lead, finishing after Liam Hayes’ run and cross.
Bronwhill capped a superb debut before the break, firing in his second from the edge of the box after Billinge had failed to clear a corner.
Rylands’ tempo slowed in the second half, but they remained dangerous on the counter-attack and Waldron, Dermody and Hayes each forced saves from the home keeper. It was the latter who added a fourth goal with a quarter hour to play, firing in an unstoppable effort from distance.
Rylands Moor, Parr, Brown, Prescott, Tebb, Lowe, Waldron (Williams 72), Hayes, Slater (Daniels 80), Dermody, Brownhill (Jennings 68).
RYLANDS Reserves gifted their Whaley Bridge counterparts a 2-1 victory after they were punished for defensive errors.
Ewan Rodgers scored for Rylands following fine approach play by Jonny Priest, but the hosts were unable to clinch a point when Phil Harrison’s last-minute header was cleared off the line.
