Villagers kick off new season in style

We welcomed in the new league season with an impressive win on the road against Ellesmere Rangers on Saturday afternoon.

We had much of the better of the first half but found ourselves struggling to break down a determined Rangers side, with the tricky Reece Dwyer forcing their keeper into a save before Luke Wilson-Jones went close with an effort from distance.

But as we looked to be heading into the break without anything to show for a strong performance we were awarded a penalty that was emphatically dispatched into the back of the net by Sam Houghton.

Half Time: Ellesmere Rangers 0-1 Barnton

The second half saw James McShane's men apply further pressure and they doubled their lead thanks to a fantastic effort from Wilson-Jones from 25 yards out.

Sub Connor Anderson was then on hand to seal the win with a well taken half volley, and he then went close with an effort from distance.

The game ended without much fanfare as we eventually ran out comfortable winners.

Up next is a trip to Vauxhall Motors on Tuesday evening with kick off at 7:45pm.
