MATTY McGinn celebrated the arrival of his second child earlier this week by notching a brace from the penalty spot as Airbus maintained their perfect start to the season with a 3-0 win at Rhyl.

The Wingmakers were in front after five minutes when James Hooper provided the delivery for Leo Riley to sweep the ball past keeper Rory Crowther. Max Peate then almost gifted a second goal when his back pass was intercepted by Lewis Buckley, but the Rhyl skipper got back to clear the danger.

A Kristian Platt header from Joe Palmer's corner was well saved by Crowther while, at the other end, Mike Pritchard had the ball in the net for the Lilywhites but his effort was ruled-out for handball while Kristian Pierce missed a chance just before half time.

Rhyl enjoyed their best spell after the break with former Wingmaker James Murphy missing two chances, while Joe Palmer fired over at the other end from 25 yards.

Aaron Hassall set-up Gareth Partridge on 55 minutes but his shot was diverted by keeper Dave Roberts. McGinn's fierce free kick was well saved by Crowther while Hooper missed a glorious chance to score but, on the hour mark, Matty Cook brought down Hooper from behind for McGinn to blast home his first penalty.

Pierce and Murphy both went close for the hosts but the game was up in the closing minutes when Crowther clattered into Buckley and McGinn scored again from the spot as Airbus emerged well-deserved winners.
