Match Report

THE Seagulls went three points clear at the top of the table with a 4-0 away victory at Holyhead Hotspur – masterminded by a stand-out performance from skipper Tom McCready.

His overall performance deserved a goal and he got on the scoresheet with the fourth goal and Bay’s 50th league goal of the campaign after earlier hitting the bar with a free kick, while Tom Creamer, Alex Downes and Matty Hill (from a McCready corner) were the other scorers.

Manager Steve Evans also gave 17-year-old Joel Giblin from the Under-19s squad a taste of first team football with a cameo appearance off the bench late on.

The skipper had already gone close, shooting over the bar from a Dylan Allshorn’s pull back and Craig Lindfield had headed a big chance over the bar from six yards, before Bay took the lead on the half hour with Tom Creamer’s deflected shot after a good run and cut back from Alex Downes.

Alex then added the second himself with a superb volley from 10 yards shortly before half-time.

Tom Creamer put another chance over the bar early in the second half and after the manager made a number a number of changes, substitute Matty Hill was denied by a good save from Holyhead keeper Adam Martin in a one-on-one.

Hill, however, did score on 68 minutes, clipping the ball in at the near post from Tom McCready’s corner, before McCready capped things off with the fourth goal 11 minutes from time.

Cameron Darling did not too have much to do in the Bay goal, with his first real save coming after 60 minutes low down at the near post, as he kept a third consecutive clean sheet.
