Match Reports Week Ending 19 October 2008

Under 10 - Southport Trinity Blue 7-2 Ainsdale

Trinity Blue entertained Ainsdale Juniors today on a outstanding rookery pitch. Trinity started the game very strongly, L.Harwood and S. Wallbank causing problems and it wasn't before they took the lead through L. Harwood who scored from a tight angle,  S. Wallbank and J. Wallbank both added good goals before a long ball over the top caught out Trinity’s defence allowing the striker to finish well.  With half time approaching Trinity got a fourth and their best goal of the half after great passing involving M. Cottam, L. Harwood and S. Wallbank who laid the ball back for A. Thorpe to rattle home.

The 2nd half saw Trinity play some lovely football J.McCormack and F.Anelli going close before L.Harwood and S.Wallbank both claimed there hat tricks but Ainsdale didn't let their heads drop getting a 2nd goal when their striker again finished well, Trinity then added a final goal through J.Wallbank who finished calmly. 

Man of the match was hard today lots of good performances but L.Harwood claimed it with a outstanding display of finishing and creative play.

Southport Trinity White 2-4 Ormskirk FC Magpies

A lovely day today for the 1st round of the Wilf Jenkinson cup. Ormskirk started the sharpest and caught the Trinity defence having a lie in and scored the opening goal in the 1st 3 minutes.
Trinity woke up and made a game of it, Sam Hollinrake running onto a good through ball from Jack Hales and finishing well to level the scores.  Trinity’s midfield were pushing hard and created a few good chances but it was Ormskirk who took the next chance and made the score 1-2. 

Trinity came out flying at the following kick off and soon levelled the score again after a great move involving tom Simpson, Liam Parker and Jack Hales. The ball fell to Sam Hollinrake who held it up well and squared the ball to Morgan Cunningham who finished coolly.  Ormskirk took their chances in the 2nd half despite the hard defensive work of Tom Simpson and Callum Cousins and some fine saves by Trinity keeper James Cropper and the game finished 2-4.  This was a great game of football that was more even than the scores suggest and all of the lads have a lot to be pleased with. Trinity man of the match was Morgan Cunningham.

Redgate Black 0-5 Ormskirk FC Rangers

A lovely morning for football saw Redgate Black from the Hawks league take on Ormskirk Rangers from the Eagles division and from kick off the gulf between the 2 teams was very evident. Will Jones broke the deadlock with a cool finish.  Will Jones got his 2nd and Alex Wong and Aidan Darcy got 1 each.  Rangers passing game was the difference with every attack opening up Redgate’s defence.  James Kay scored two and the half finished 6-0. 

Redgate heads didn't drop but any half chances they did have where snubbed out by keeper Adam Jones and defenders Jamie Barnes and Ben Gore.  The 2nd half was more of the same with Tom Bigland scoring twice and Will Jones completing his hat trick. Josh Ackers came close but it wasn't meant to be.  It was difficult to single any player out after a great team performance but man of the match went to Alex Wong who had his best game of the season and looked back to his best.

Under 11 - Formby FC Juniors 0-10 Town Green

Formby FC Juniors got off to the worst possible start as the visitors ran into a 3-0 lead inside the 1st 10 minutes to sink the home sides confidence once again.  As the game was already over as a contest as Town Green added 2 more before Formby came to life. Ben Hitchmough controlled the ball out on the right before crossing 1st time to Thomas Drela who managed to get his shot off as the keeper advanced but his shot was well saved by the visiting keeper.  Town Green added a 6th right on half time after a foul by Joey Pierce just outside the penalty area. 

Once again Formby came to life after the break but just couldn’t get that elusive goal. Shaun Jackson-Guy was brought on at left back and immediately linked well with Joe Sudlow out on the wing as Formby poured forward. Joe Sudlow’s cross come shot though was saved well by the Town Green keeper.   Town Green were now being penned back but they caught Formby on the break and added a 7th just when Formby were looking dangerous. Aaron Taylor slipped the ball forward to Matty Lloyd who beat two players, again with some ease as Town Green failed to challenge, Lloyd played the ball wide to Shaun Jackson-Guy who was away down the wing, his cross was superb, right onto the edge of the 6 yard box but as Sam Carragher steamed in he missed the ball by inches.  Town added 3 before the finish to complete the impressive scoreline.

Under 15 - Billinge Under 1-1 Formby B
(aet) (Billinge win on penalties)

This game was a tight affair, as with the previous League game, with the visitors content to rely on pace up front on the break and sit behind the ball whenever possession was lost which they did very effectively kicking down the slope in the 1st half.  Billinge's controlled play in midfield contrasted with the physical approach of Formby and so at half time with the game locked at nil nil, with few clear cut chances for Billinge, they brought on Barron, Sinnott and Harrison to try to get more width and pace down the flanks.

The game began to change with numerous chances in and around the box falling to Anderson, Sinnott and Barron.  It was Bradshaw however with a driving run at the defence who produced a strikes which squirmed out of the opposition keepers hands and went in to tumultuous applause.  The game looked set for a 1-0 win to Billinge, but Formby, at last, decided to be adventurous going 4-4-2 for the 1st time in the game and after a goalmouth scramble with 7 minutes to go poked the ball home. 

Extra time again saw Billinge with the lions share of possession but it inevitably went to penalties with Billinge dispatching 4 to Formby’s 2.  Man Of The Match - Matty Ayre

West Lancs Colts 2-3 Ainsdale

These 2 teams had never played each other before so didn't know what to expect. Ainsdale were the 1st to attack from the whistle, but Kyle Deary's 1st shot was saved by the keeper.  The game was played at a quick pace and was end to end play, both teams having their chances, but defending well. West Lancs broke the deadlock at 35 minutes with their player calmly placing the ball past the keeper. West Lancs were unlucky not to score again straight away as Keeper Rhys Crowther palmed the ball over the bar. 

There was plenty more of the same in the 2nd half with both team raining shots down on the keepers, but Ainsdale's defensive line of Tom Harrison, Jamie Segar, Danny Lowery, Mike Phillips and Brad Jones held off West Lancs with sheer grit and determination until a brilliant run netted West Lancs their 2nd.  Ainsdale Captain Paul Simms spurred the team on and this seemed to wake them up. Kyle Deary chipped the ball over the defence for Lee Tierney to run on to who in turn chipped the keeper for 2-1.

Liam Getchell had been unlucky not to score with his magnificent runs down the left until a quick 1-2 with Harry McLean, Getchell placed the ball to the left of the keeper for the equaliser.   West Lancs players were visibly shaken by the comeback and attempted to keep the ball in the Ainsdale half, but some great work form subs Luke Smith and Danny Prole helped Ainsdale to their 3rd and winning goal with Tierney running out from defence passing to McLean, then Deary and finally back to Tierney who was one on one with the keeper but kept his head to score.

West Lancs final chance to equalise and take the match to extra time came just before the whistle. A throw in met the foot of a WL player only to be pushed to safety by the excellent Crowther who made some very important saves.

There were plenty of contenders for Man of the Match, but the accolade has to shared between the defensive power that is Jamie Segar and speedy winger Lee Tierney.
