The club would like to send best wishes and a speedy recovery to Terry Ryan father of Trefelin manager Richard who is ill at present.
Lido came out on top in this first ever competitive game against Trefelin. First half goals from Josh Webber and a penalty by Jordan Edwards was enough to secure the three points. Trefelin battled hard in the second half but to a man Lido defended heroically with the returning Stefan Rogers making a number of notable saves in goal.
Trefelin played with a strong wind at their backs but it was the Lido who settled the better. Chris Curtis picked up a first minute booking when he brought down Jordan Edwards but the free kick was wasted. Lido did take the lead on 10 minutes when Josh Webber latched onto a through ball and slotted his shot underneath Chris Curtis into the back of the net. Within two minutes Ryan Griffiths shot from distance the ball dipped with the wind and rattled off the crossbar for a goal kick. Trefelin’s Ceri Williams picked up the ball at the back post and took a shot at goal which Steffan Rogers did well to turn behind for a corner. Lido went two up on 22 minutes when they were awarded a penalty. Ioan Evans was adjudged to have been brought down in the box. Jordan Edwards took the kick and confidently tucked it away although Curtis guessed the right way.
Trefelin were awarded a free kick outside the box, Sean Hanbury stepped up and floated it over the wall and Rogers did well to save. Lido had a great chance to extend their lead on 42 minutes when Jordan Edwards raced clear of the defence and tried to lift a shot over the advancing Curtis but the keeper got a hand to it and managed to keep it out. A great save keeping Trefelin in touch.
Trefelin came out for the second half in determined fashion and almost pulled a goal back after 48 minutes. A double chance was saved by two last ditch goal line clearances from the Lido defence. The first shot was hooked off the line by Steve Morris while Latham’s resulting header was nodded clear by Cai Owens. Lido looked to have added a third on 53 minutes following a free kick. Jordan Edwards nodded in a free kick but was adjudged to have been offside although it may have been another player who was actually offside. On the hour Lido had another chance to extend their lead when Josh Webber whipped in a low cross which Jordan Edwards connected with and it somehow hit Chris Curtis and stayed out. With 25 minutes to go Trefelin were having a period of possession and created a series of half chances while they were camped out in the Lido half. Chris Jones took a potshot from distance which fizzed just wide. Trefelin created another chance when they broke quickly Griffiths picked it up unmarked on the edge of the box and took his shot under no pressure but somehow missed the target. Trefelin continued to apply pressure and Ceri Williams was played through on goal with only Rogers to beat but the Lido keeper positioned himself superbly and blocked the shot. With 15 minutes to go, Jordan Edwards was pulled back near the half way but the free kick was cleared. Trefelin pulled a goal back with thirteen minutes to go, Joseph Jones nodded in after a long range cross rebounded off the bar. With 5 minutes to go Lido had another chance to settle the game when Jordan Edwards raced free. His shot was blocked but the rebound fell to Harry Davies whose effort is planted straight at Chris Curtis. Trefelin continued to pile on the pressure in search of the equaliser but Lido broke clear and played the final minutes deep in Trefelin territory
