Skipper shines at Bayswater

Skipper shines at Bayswater

Posted on August 19, 2016 in 'News'

It’s been a huge week for ECU Joondalup skipper Ryan Lowry. The defender was outstanding in the Jacks 3-0 win at Bayswater City, earning him the Credentia Construction Man of the Match, and on Wednesday he starred in the WA State side against Perth Glory.

Lowry was outstanding at Bayswater and he said it’s satisfying to see where the club is heading and he’s happy to be a part of it.  “This is a result of all the hard work for three years with Dale as coach, and we’re all hoping we can crack that top four spot this year,” he said.

“The first 30 minutes they had us under the pump to be fair, but the last 60 we just dominated and controlled the game and it showed with the quality goals we scored.”

Lowry said the trio up top are a handful and he said that’s something they haven’t had for a while, and it’s good to be a part of solid back line. “The best thing this season is we have three boys up front that can do the business, and we’re a dangerous side going forward at the moment and we’re looking forward to the future,” he said.”

“The whole back five today were outstanding, and Lewis has been fantastic since he joined us and that’s another clean sheet, something all defenders like, and that’s the eighth in the last ten game, and it continues are unbeaten run.”

Assistant Coach David Tough said skipper Lowry has led by example on the pitch, and the club are delighted to have signed him for next season. “Paddy has been outstanding this season and showed against Bayswater and in the state game against the Glory he can play at that next level,” Tough said.

“He’s a quiet lad, but he lets his football do the talking. Dale, Steven and I have been delighted the way Ryan has led the side this season and he has been part of a defence that has kept eight clean sheets in the last ten games.

“We are delighted we’ve managed to secure his services for next season, and we hope he can lead the club to the top four finals this season.”
