Corwen manager Jellicoe praises side for second half comeback in Chirk draw

Corwen manager Danny Jellicoe has praised his side for their second half performance in their 1-1 draw against Chirk on the weekend.

Chirk took the lead in the first half, but Corwen’s second half performance helped his side to secure a point in their Welsh National League Premier Division fixture.

But, despite a first half performance that saw them go behind, Jellicoe believes that comign back from a goal down is a positive sign for the squad, and something they’ve not shown too much of in recent weeks.

“Disappointed with the first half, didn’t create as many chances as we would have liked. Second half was much better. We moved the ball quickly and looked more of a threat. Going a goal behind was disappointing, although in fairness Chirk played well. The positives we can take from the game are that we came back from being a goal down, something that we haven’t done in recent weeks and the way that we played in the second half.”

Corwen have started the season in emphatic form, having lost just once, and now drawn once, in nine league games.

But, the club aren’t stopping there as media officer Gavin Billington has highlighted how the club are already working at strengthening the squad for the immediate future.

“Dominic Doherty played well after coming off the bench & took his goal well, he is likely to have worked his way into Danny Jellicoe’s plans for the next stating line up. Changes – Corwen are hopeful of including a new signing in the squad for Saturday’s game at Brickfield, but we cannot announce details untill the transfer has gone through.”
