Youth & Ladies Weekend Round Up

96 HomeIn the Walton & Kirkdale JFL, the Under 8’s drew 2-2 with Bootle FC Bucks while the Under 9’s lost 0-4 to West Derby Pumas.

The Under 11’s lost 0-3 to FC Start in the South Liverpool & District JFL and Darren Davies provides the summary, ‘A tough game against FC Start this morning. We went one down midway through the first half and in the second half we had a terrible refereeing decision given against us. Josh, an AFC defender, was dragged down by their striker only for the free kick to be given the other way, to which FC Start scored a great free kick. The lads heads then went down and the result ended up 3-0 at full time. Unlucky to AFC today. We tried but nothing went our way but well done to FC Start.’

The Under 15’s had mixed results. On Saturday, in the St Helens & Rainhill JFL, the lads beat Pex Hill 6-0 to keep themselves in with a chance of taking the title as they remain nine points behind leaders Evolution with three games in hand. The goals came from Tom (3), Liam (2) and Joe. On Sunday the lads lost 1-3 to TMS in the Merseyside & Halewood JFL, with the Reds’ goal coming from Nial. Manager Joe Wright said, ‘our lads put the effort in today but never got the breaks we needed. We need to bounce back on Thursday when we play Marshalls.’ The top two in the league, Kikrby Woodpecker & Crosby Stuart drew with one another, so the Reds can top the table if they win their tow games in hand.

In the Grove Youth Division of the Wallasey & District SFL, the Under 17’s lost 1-3 to Wallasey Wanderers. Howard Northover writes, ‘AFC Liverpool took the lead against Wallasey Wanderers with a wonderful strike by Alexander Northover who volleyed home from eighteen yards the pinpoint cross supplied by Ben Dunn. Still, the victory eluded us as three goals from the hosts eradicated our lead.’

The Saturday Under 21’s lost 1-3 to Crosby Harbour in the Southport & District’s Colonel White Cup while the Sunday Under 21’s lost 1-4 to Kingsthorne. Reds fan Michael provides the write up, ‘A lacklustre display saw AFC slip to defeat this morning. A Ryan Moran free kick after fifteen minutes curled just wide but that was the only real chance for AFC in the first half while some fine saves from Declan Morgan, a goal line clearance and other fine defending kept it scoreless at half time. The second half saw Kingsthorne finally take advantage of AFC’s poor display as some fine finishing and defensive errors saw them take a commanding four goal lead. AFC gained a consolation with a fine 25 yard strike by James Moran but all in all it was a performance to forget. The next game is the semi final of the Bill Hannon Cup on Thursday 3rd April against Widnes Vikings. Kick off 6.15pm at Shankly Fields, Barnfield Drive, West Derby. Hopefully another visit to the County FA ground will be the outcome.’

Finally, AFC Liverpool Ladies claimed three points this weekend without having to kick a ball after their opponents, Manchester University, resigned from the North West Women’s Regional League Division One South.
