NEWRY BACK INTO POLE POSITION

Newry City returned to the top of the Lough 41 Championship thanks to victory over HW Welders at the Blanchflower Stadium.

All three goals were scored in an explosive opening half-an-hour, with Daniel Hughes firing Newry in front after 11 minutes with a superb effort which saw him receive the ball from a throw-in, hold off the attention of Gary Spence, take the ball along the edge of the area and send a left foot finish past Ben McCauley inside the left post.

And it was 2-0 just three minutes later when James Teelan continued his recent run of form by outsprinting Daniel McMurray and slotting past the advancing McCauley from inside the area.

The Welders reduced the deficit on 29 minutes. Michael McLellan hooked the ball forward from the centre circle for Scott Davidson to ran past the Newry defence to place the ball below keeper Steven Maguire.

McLellan came close to levelling with a low long distance effort on the turn which fizzed just the wrong side of the post before Davidson turned the ball against the outside of an upright with a speculative cross from wide on the left.

After the break Hughes and Jimmy Walker offered up efforts both of which just failed to hit the target. with Hughes then turning a free-kick onto the crossbar.

For the Welders Alan McMurtry came close with a free-kick plucked out of the air just below the post while, in the closing moments, McLellan turned a header just wide from point blank range.
