A SUNNY Easter Saturday down at Ruskin saw Town play their penultimate league game against Liver Academy FC in front of an impressive 170+ crowd.

The day featured Penlake FC under 11s who led the team out to Town’s walk out song, ‘Town Called Malice’.

After a slow start from the home side, Town soon got a grip on the game and deservedly went ahead on the 42nd minute as their new midfield signing Ian Roby unleashed an unstoppable half volley into the top left hand corner.

This was to the delight of the home faithful, and sent the blues in 1-0 at the break.

Despite the visitors attempts to get back into the game, they were outfought and outworked by Town midfielders Liam Beech, and Ian Roby.

‘Robes’ put in a workman like performance that his oval shaped ball namesake would be proud of.

Town sealed the victory in the 57th minute, as the Liver Academy goalkeeper hesitated after a back pass, and was dispossessed by Town striker Ryan Cook who calmly slotted home and doubled the lead.

St Helens Star:

Man of the Match for Town was Centre back Matthew ‘The Rock’ Rochford who didn’t put a foot wrong all game, providing a solid platform from which Town could build their attacks.

Special mention to defender Luke Diggle who made a late cameo appearance as a forward.

Showing bother Liam he’s not the the only Diggle in Town with a hunger for goal.

Another positive for Town was the debut of young Ellis Daverin who came on as a substitute.

The new signing looked strong and confident on the ball. The future looks bright for little old St Helens Town AFC after a tough season both on and off the pitch.

Town's last home game of the season is Saturday 22 April, 3pm kick off, Ruskin Drive.
