Match Reports for week ending January 15
Under 12

In a very tight first half, Halsall went in at half time with a narrow 0-1 lead at Hesketh Colts thanks to a low driven shot from Adam Wallace from just inside the Hesketh Colts penalty area. Hesketh had threatened throughout the first half, however the Halsall defence marshalled superbly by Adam Pheysey managed to contain all of the pressure. The second half started with Halsall putting Hesketh on the back foot. An inswinging corner from the left delivered by Mike Edwards caught the Hesketh defence out and resulted in Halsall’s second. Further pressure followed from Halsall with some good work on the right with both James Hennessey and Andrew Tindall involved. Another Halsall corner soon followed and this time Jordan Middleton managed to squeeze the ball in past the keeper. A Sam Wheeler goal followed very quickly to make it 0-4. Luke came off the bench for Halsall and put in a fantastic battling performance to earn himself a well deserved goal and also the supporters man of the match. A late and well earned consolation goal followed near the end for a battling Hesketh Colts team.

Formby started brightly at Trinity, playing with the wind in the first half, with Jonathan Schooler and Jamie Pennington competing well in midfield. With Southport Trinity pushed back into their half, Formby had some early chances with Shannon Hunter coming close on a couple of occasions. Formby attacked well forcing several corners. The first goal for Formby came from a corner floated in by Joe Mahoney that was latched onto at the back post by Shannon Hunter who forced the ball home. After that Formby continued to press and it was another corner that curled directly into the goal from Joe Mahoney for Formby’s second. Towards the end of a very long first half, Southport Trinity came back into the game trying to play balls behind the Formby defence and were unlucky with a couple for chances. Trinity came out in the second half determined to use the wind and press Formby back. They did this to some effect for the first 10 minutes but Formby held firm with some good defending from Mathew Rostron and Ryan Jones. However, Formby were quite strong on the counter attack down the right wing. Formby’s third goal came from a driving run down the right by Luke Hamilton who then shot strongly into the bottom corner from inside the box. Formby kept stifling Trinity in midfield and pushing the ball down the right. Sam Birtles had the ball in the net for Formby from a good cross from the right but was ruled offside. However a few minutes later Sam Birtles made up for this collecting the ball on the left just in Trinities half, and beating one man on the outside he then cut across another defender into the box and finished neatly in the bottom corner giving the goalkeeper no chance. With four goals Formby eased up slightly and Trinity capitalised with some good play down their right the ball broke behind the defence and the Trinity striker put the ball away for their consolation goal. This did spur Formby into some more action and almost immediately from the kick off Luke Hamilton was brought down on the right in the box and a penalty awarded. However, Sam Birtles failed to convert this and the match ended 4-1 to Formby.

The cold conditions played a part in the performance of both teams as Ainsdale B took on Burscough FCJ B at the Ainsdale Club. The game was a scrappy affair which never looked like emulating the style of football seen in the corresponding fixture at Scarisbrick in September. Most of the first-half was pressure from Ainsdale, with Ryan Spencer and Danny Hinchy posing the initial threat up front. Danny Rimmer and Danny Horne were working well in midfield to provide early chances. Burscough defended in numbers to great effect for long periods, stifling Ainsdale attacks with great effect. Ainsdale kept probing to no avail, with Burscough coming back into it with a couple of attacking moves; the half ended in stalemate.

The second half started at a higher tempo than the first, with Burscough showing clear signs that they weren't prepared to just defend. On a number of occasions they sprung from their defensive formation with counter-attacks that were very effectively dealt with by Paddy Whitehead in the Ainsdale defence.  Ainsdale seemed spurred-on by this and began to attack with more purpose. Joseph Clarke was causing the Burscough left-back continual problems and Danny Horne and Danny Rimmer combined well on the left. The deadlock was broken midway through the second half with a well taken goal by Joseph Clarke. Substitutions from both sides followed for the last ten minutes with Mark Jones and Danny Hinchy coming on as a new forward line for Ainsdale and Tom Fisher coming on for Burscough. The junior Linnets weren't out of it by any means and more counter-attacking was again dealt with by the solid Paddy Whitehead. It was from one of his timely interceptions that Ainsdale scored their second goal. Danny Moore receiving the ball in his own half before taking on and beating three Burscough players before smashing the ball past the Burscough keeper into the bottom left-hand corner.

Ainsdale's Man of the Match went to the impressive Paddy Whitehead. The match was a battling display from everyone, but Paddy stood out for his excellent defending particularly when dealing with the Burscough counter-attacks. For Burscough, the goalkeeper impressed with a string of excellent fingertip saves as well as some crucial punched clearances.
