REPORT | Wrexham AFC Women 6-0 Llanfair United

Rosie Hughes scores five as Wrexham claim another 6-0 win

25 September 2022

Rosie Hughes scored five goals to continue her remarkable record against Llanfair United, as Wrexham put six past their Powys opponents for the second time in as many games.

Hughes – who has now scored hat-tricks in five of her six Wrexham appearances against Llanfair – was in imperious form in front of goal once again, scoring four times before the break.

She laid on Libby Mackenzie for Wrexham’s fifth and then capped her fine afternoon by rounding off the scoring after the break.

It meant a winning start to life at the team’s new home ground, Rhos Aelwyd FC, and a winning start to the 2022/23 Genero Adran Trophy campaign.

Having beaten Llanfair 6-0 at Mount Field three weeks ago, it was a slightly-changed Wrexham line-up for this second encounter.

Erin Lovett missed out through suspension and Ella Clifton-Stringer with injury, meaning Megan Buckley and Lili Jones came into the starting line-up.

Fit-again Amber Lightfoot and fellow forward Sophie Hodson were also starters, in place of Ava Suckley and Mia Roberts.

Having scored a hat-trick in that first game of the season, Hughes wasted no time opening her account for this game too.

Just 11 minutes in, the prolific striker was on the scoresheet – her 52nd Wrexham goal giving the Red Dragons the lead.

Five minutes later, Rebecca Pritchard laid on Hughes for her second of the afternoon, and she completed her hat-trick in the 34th minute.

She was not done there either, as three minutes later captain Kim Dutton teed Hughes up to score her fourth of the afternoon and give Wrexham a commanding half-time lead.

Libby Mackenzie got in on the act with her second of the season on the hour-mark – Hughes this time turning provider.

And on 66 minutes, the striker made it 6-0 – the second time she has scored five against Llanfair in her Wrexham career.

Lauren McCaffrey, Ava Suckley and Bethan Jones were all introduced from the bench, and Wrexham ensured they recorded a 6-0 win for the second time in as many games – sealing back-to-back clean sheets in the process too.

Wrexham: Morgan, Dutton, L.Jones (McCaffrey 67), Sharp, Buckley, Dickens, Hodson (B.Jones 80), Pritchard, Lightfoot (Suckley 75), Mackenzie, Hughes
