Match Reports Week Ending 5 October 2008

Under 9 - Formby JSC A 6-1 Ormskirk FC

A great game of football with Formby starting very well and scoring an early goal. Ormskirk started to fight back after the early pressure and put Formby under a lot of pressure that pressure paying of with Matthew Hampson Birks scoring an absolute screamer.

In the 2nd half Formby showed there class and put Ormskirk under a lot of pressure and the game finished 6-1 to Formby but Ormskirk deserve a lot of credit because they made it a great game.

Under 10 - Fleetwood Hesketh 5-3 Redgate Rovers Black

Following an early morning pitch inspection and some welcome sunshine, both teams began the game on a heavy but fast drying surface.  Both teams where determined from the start and settled quickly.  It was Redgate who opened the scoring today with a well worked goal beating keeper J, McCall with a looping shot from a tight angle

Despite this Fleetwood gained the initiative and pressed hard for the rest of the half and were rewarded when C.Harper received an early ball from K.Wilson and beat 2 defenders before M.Howard ran across his path and finished low to the right of the keeper form just inside the box.

The 2nd half continued in the same vein and Fleetwood proceeded to dominate the earlier exchanges, eventually scoring again through S.Gradwell and K.Wilson. The 1st of these was to come after a crowded Redgate box left 2 or 3 Fleetwood players frustrated, S.Gradwell included until he found some space and smashed the ball into the roof of the net. The later of the 2goals came when K.Wilson crossed from the left with pace and an unfortunate fumble from the otherwise faultless Redgate keeper found the net.  Perhaps the best goal of the day came from C.Harper when he proved that attention in training really does pay off timing his run perfectly to step onto a fine corner and bury the ball into the net with his head.

Credit must go to Redgate’s players as they never let there heads drop and managed to score 2 goals on the break making the final score 5-3. Another mention must go to Redgate’s replacement Keeper who did equally as well as his predecessor and saved a number of times to keep the game alive.  Thanks also to Luke Timmis who refereed today’s game letting the game flow despite some strong, but on the whole fair, challenges.

Under 11 - Formby FC 1-4 Southport Trinity

Formby FC Juniors lost their 100% home record on Saturday morning against Southport Trinity but it wasn’t through lack of grit and determination after a superb 2nd half performance from Ian Robinson’s boys as they penned Trinity back into their own half for long periods of the half.

Unfortunately it is a game of 2 halves and after a poor 1st period, Formby were always chasing the game. Formby began the game brightly but it soon went wrong as Trinity scored 3 times inside 10 minutes.  Formby began to show some signs of a recovery as the half went on and Sam Carragher easily went round one defender then another before finding Max Robinson who’s shot was well saved by the keeper.  In the very 1st minute after the break Southport Trinity grabbed their 4th after a terrible scramble inside the 6 yard box.  Formby’s heads went down but Patrick Travers set Sam Carragher away and he was much too tricky for the Southport Trinity defenders as he was hauled down at the third attempt by the defender right on the edge of the penalty area. Harry Mills stepped up and smashed the ball over the keeper and into the back of the net.

Formby then came to life as Matthew Lloyd was beginning to tackle hard but fair and once Patrick Travers followed his lead the whole team began to fight for every ball and firmly took the game by the scruff of the neck. Matthew Lloyd slipped a great ball through to Sam Carragher who looked like he was going to score until a superb tackle denied him a shot on goal. Max Robinson was battling well and found Matthew Lloyd who threaded a ball through to Sam Carragher but the visiting keeper was out well to clear the danger. Patrick Travers then headed on to Thomas Drela but he was closed down by the defence before he could get a shot off. By now Formby were winning every 50/50 ball but just couldn’t turn all their possession into goals.

Today’s man of the match award went to Harry Mills who was good going forward but when asked to play at the back he excelled as Southport Trinity failed to break Formby down. Shaun Jackson-Guy had a great game in goal and his handling and kicking was superb.
