HALTON FC Youth started their Birkenhead Sunday League campaign with two emphatic wins.
Thursday saw Halton entertain Christleton FC at Picow Farm Road and dominate with goals from Sam Bailey and Ashley Siner. Man-of-the-match for Halton in a 5-0 victory was Duncan Rikard.
Coach Gary Siner said: 'What was particularly pleasing for Halton was the performances of Dean Ramanouski and Ross Duncan, both promoted from the club's younger sides.'
On Sunday, Halton were at home to Shaftesbury FC and, in the first half, the local lads struggled to match the commitment of their visitors and only found themselves level at half- time thanks to a well-taken penalty by man-of-the-match Ashley Siner.
The second period saw Halton more focused and once Ross Duncan put his side ahead, it was one-way traffic with Siner and Bailey always dangerous.
Bailey bagged a hat-trick to make the final score 5-1.
* Tonight, Halton travel to Castrol FC of Ellesmere Port.
