A STANDOUT display from Tomos Clarke gave Holyhead Hotspur an eye-catching 4-2 victory at Ruthin Town.

The Holy Islanders’ produced one of their finest performances of the Huws Gray Alliance season after being relegated last weekend, and manager Darren Garmey will be hoping for the same result when the two sides clash again at The New Stadium this Saturday (2.30pm).

The away side got their noses in front early on thanks to a superb strike from Clarke with four on the clock, but this was met by a swift response from Chris Williams’ side, who were back on level terms on nine minutes thanks to a neat finish from Ilan Hughes.

This seemed to spur the home side on in the moments after the equaliser, and they took the lead for the first time on 23 minutes when Ryan Jones made some space for himself before finding the corner.

Spurs showed tremendous resolve after the break in what turned out to be a virtuoso display from a talented squad that has significantly underachieved this season, and Clark was on hand to despatch his second of the afternoon to level things up yet again on 49 minutes.

Talisman Mel McGinnes was at his brilliant best throughout the second period, and he turned the game on its head with a brilliant piece of skill to put the visitors in front on 51 minutes.

Town threw everything at the away side in their quest to salvage something from the game, but their hopes were dashed on 75 minutes when Clarke broke clear yet again to cap off an incredible individual display with his hat-trick on 75 minutes to secure Spurs’ fifth success of the season.
