Remyca struggled at a windswept Litherland Sports Park on Saturday as they were defeated 1-2 by St Helens Town.

The game got under way with Remyca as favorites for the game having been unbeaten in three and played rather well up until this point with St Helens having reverse fortunes inncluding a 2-4 home defeat just 48hrs earlier.

The game got off to a difficult start for Remy as goalkeeper Lee Carroll looked out of sorts at the back and St Helens applying plenty of pressure early on and it was not long before the pressure told as Sam Sheen scored after just six minutes for the visitors.Remyca did manage to find their feet after the first 15 minutes but did look slightly dis-jointed, the flowing football of previous games not being with them on the park for this game.

There was hope though when on the half hour mark, Remyca pressure saw a couple of shots put into the box and a rather inoccuous shout for handball in the box paid off as Remyca were awarded a penalty.  Colin Quirk stepping up and slotting home crisply into the left hand corner.

The sides got through to half time with neither returning to the dressing room looking particularly happy.

In the second half Remyca were limited to set piece opportunities and shots from the edge of the box but they did come close early on in the galf when a cross from Flynn on the by-line found Quirk who's shot was well saved by the St Helens Keeper'.

St Helens looked strong and were effective up front and this was proved on 70 minutes when the prolific Andy Gillespie who slotted a number of goals away last season for Town fired in a crisp daisy cutter across the goal to put the Blues ahead.

It was a scrappy game and one that Remyca did not look comfortable in whilst the visitors were more effective in their forward sorties and were good value for their win on the day. 

For us now it is time to re-group as we face a strong looking Chadderton side away next Saturday on their own ground.
