Youth & Ladies Weekend Round Up

96 HomeIn the Walton & Kirkdale JFL, both the Under 8’s and Under 9’s had good results this weekend. The Under 8’s beat BRNESC 6-0, with Kirk notching five of the goals and lifelong AFC Liverpool fan Kirk grabbing the other. The Under 9’s won 11-1 against Mersey Boys 96 with Zach (3), Curtis (3), Charlie (2), Sully (2), Jack & Jake all getting their names on the scoresheet.

In the South Liverpool & District JFL, the Under 11’s narrowly lost 1-2 to Woolton Power.

The Saturday Under 15’s beat Whiston Juniors 5-0 to maintain their unbeaten league record in the St Helens & Rainhill JFL, with the goals coming from Marc, Jacko, Connor, Sam and Liam. With league leaders Evolution drawing 3-3 with Blackbrook, this means the lads have closed the gap to the top spot to twelve points with four games in hand. Manager Joe Wright said,’ Our lads were excellent today and scored some great goals.’

The Sunday Under 15’s were also victorious as they beat Kirkby Woodpecker 2-0 in the Merseyside & Halewood JFL. The result takes them above Sunday’s opponents into second in the table and keeps them two points behind leaders Crosby Stuart with two games in hand. Joe said, ‘Our lads were great in a tough game and the goals came from Gerrard and Nial. Well played lads.’

In the Craven Minor JFL, the Under 16’s maintained their spot at the top of the table with a 3-0 win over Southport Trinity and with second placed Hudson Celtic losing, that result sees their lead extended to eleven points.

In the Grove Youth Division of the Wallasey & District SFL, the Under 17’s got an impressive 1-1 draw against Vauxhall Colts with the Reds’ goal coming from Wrighty. Howard Northover said of the game that, ‘with only a single goalkeeping substitute due to injuries, the Under 17’s did magnificently well today to come away with a point against title contenders Vauxhall. It was an impressive performance, epitomised by our goalie coming out to midfield. It was the stuff of Rourke’s Drift.’

In the Southport & District League’s George Alty Cup, the Saturday Under 21’s went down 1-5 to Formby Dons.

The Sunday Under 21’s were also in cup action and the put in a superb performance in their second leg of the Bill Hannon Cup to progress to the semi final. Trailing 1-3 to Woolton from the first leg, they turned the tie around by winning 4-1 to make it 5-4 on aggregate. Archstanton provides us with the details:
‘Right from the kick off AFC were on the front foot and two goals around the quarter hour brought the aggregate scores level. The first was a great move ending with a through ball from Paul Leahy and finished by Jordan Riviere. The second was route one with Declan Morgan kicking long for the run of Leahy and when the defender missed the ball, Leahy ran on to finish superbly with a cross shot. Woolton regained the lead with their only attack of the half. Morgan tipped over after the ball had bounced around the area but from the resulting corner a near post header was bundled over the line.
The second half again saw AFC press forward and several chances were squandered early on. Then on 55 minutes Riviere coolly finished another through ball, this time from Carlson to level the tie. Five minutes later after a scramble in the area Morgan Sellars hooked home from close range to give AFC the aggregate lead. AFC continued to press forward and created a couple of half chances and saw the game out comfortably as Woolton’s only effort was a blocked free kick from the edge of the area.’

AFC Liverpool Ladies were in action in the North West Women’s Regional League Division One South as they travelled to Ellesmere Port Town but they were unable to come back with anything as they lost 2-4.
