Welsh youth international Lili Jones scored two second-half goals, as Wrexham AFC Women’s Under-19s team made a winning start to the Genero Adran Under-19’s North league season.
After their opening game against TNS was postponed last week, the young Red Dragons finally got their campaign underway in winning style by beating Penrhyn Bay.
Lucy Scott, one of the permitted over-age players in the team, gave Wrexham an early lead but Anais Weston levelled just minutes later.
However, Jones struck twice after the break as a strong Wrexham team ensured Gareth Owen’s first league game in charge ended in victory.
Wrexham fielded a strong team at Colliers Park, with Jones captaining the side.
Scott broke the deadlock after just ten minutes, but Weston levelled only three minutes later.
Jones restored the lead just eight minutes after the break, however, and sealed victory with 15 minutes remaining with the goal of the game – beating the keeper from outside the area, with an excellent strike.
Wrexham AFC: Abbie Bellis-Holloway, Erin Marsland (Megan Buckley 58), Mia Roberts, Natasha Spearing, Erin Lovett, Megan Jones, Kim Dutton (Tasha Commins 78), Lucy Scott, Jasmine Cudlip, Lili Jones, Libby Mackenzie (Mia Williams 86)
