Week Ending 25 January 2009
Under 10 - Jaguars White 1-6 Southport Trinity Blue
Trinity Blue played away for the first
time in over a month and stormed into a early lead which knocked the
stuffing out of the Jags. Lewis Harwood continued his
excellent form, finishing after Sam Wallbank split open the Jags
defence. Sam Wallbank got the second after Fabrizio Anelli had
his shot blocked but the ball fell into the path of Sam who made no
mistake. Fabrizio Anelli then added a third, firing in from
the edge of the box after Joe Wallbank had his effort saved.
Lewis Harwood got his second after Jamie McCormack won the ball in
the middle of the park to release Lewis who finished well for 4-0.
Trinity completed the nap hand when Sam Wallbank took on two players
before rounding the keeper. Jags really struggled to cope with
Trinity's forwards in the first half and Cameron Rimmer and Jamie
Hough kept things tight at the back but when Jags did get behind
them Michael Cottam pulled of a great save. In the second half
it was a different game, Jags coming out fired up creating a couple
of chances but it was Trinity who scored again when Joe Wallbank
finished well after Fabrizio Anelli crossed. Jags battled hard
in the second half and caught Trinity on the break with their
striker racing clear to score in the last few minutes. Trinity
created lots of good chances but found the Jags keeper in excellent
form making save after save. Trinity man of the match went to
Jamie McCormack for all his hard work up and down the pitch and a
mention too for Jamie Hough who filled in today from our under 9's
and had a brilliant game.
Under 12 - Birkdale
United 1-1 Crosby Stuart
Both teams made a bright start to the
game but neither side was really able to take control. The
first real chance of the game fell to Luke Williams after 10 minutes
but his shot slipped agonisingly just wide. The game continued
to ebb and flow with Birkdale having slightly the better of it but
no more chances were created until Liam Jackson shot just wide
following a goal mouth scramble after 28 minutes. Birkdale
finally scored on the stroke of half time with a great run and shot
from Max Regan. The second half started in very much the same
way as the first half with neither side creating any real goal
scoring opportunities. After 15 minutes, Crosby Stuart had
their first chance of the game when a ball crossed from the left was
met by the advancing forward but Nick Knight, having had nothing to
do until this point, made a good point blank save. Crosby
Stuart were now starting to apply more pressure and were rewarded
with a well taken headed goal from a corner and that was the way it
stayed until full time. A draw was probably a fair result at
the end of the game but yet again Birkdale can rue their missed
chances in the first half that might have sealed victory.
Joint Man of the Match this week were Brodie Pike and Jack Young.
Under 15 - Southport
Trinity 2-1 Ainsdale
The first half was end to end’ with both
teams coming close but failing to score. Trinity started the
second half the stronger and were first to score. It took
Ainsdale ten minutes to equalise with a perfect pass from Kyle Deary
to Lee Tierney who took on the keeper and put the ball in the back
of the net. Trinity's winner came five minutes from time when
the Ainsdale defence failed to clear the ball, the shot played
across goal somehow managed to roll in beyond the oustretched hand
of keeper Rhys Crowther. Ainsdale's man of the match was Paul
Simms for his tireless effort and determination.
HOTEL PUTS BRITISH SLEEPING HABITS TO BED!
local hotels have carried out research into the bedtime habits
of Brits, and discovered that we are truly creatures of habit.
The Liverpool North and Liverpool South Innkeeper’s Lodges found
that 93% of people have their own favourite side of the bed to sleep
on at night, and over three quarters (76%) of us keep to them even
if we are staying away from home.
And with Valentine’s Day just around the corner, they also revealed
that most men are actually proving their romantic credentials every
night of the year by generously offering up first choice of the
favoured side to wives and partners, while women are more likely to
demand first pick of the side they feel most comfortable on.
The findings were a result of the two Innkeeper’s Lodges quizzing
guests on their sleeping habits and combining them with results from
other Innkeeper’s Lodges across the UK – questioning over 2,000
people in total.
Such is the strength of our habitual position in bed, Innkeeper’s
Lodge also found out that 42% of people thought their good nights
sleep would be affected should they have to sleep on the opposite
Perhaps proving that romance isn’t dead, a massive two thirds of men
(67%) claimed the reason for having a certain sleeping side was
because their partners had chosen the other. But women are more
concerned with plumping the pillows, as the biggest reason (42%) for
females lying on either the left or right is because it is where
they feel most comfortable.
But in a blow to the notion that men are the more accommodating sex
in bed, 7 out of 10 males who slept closer to the door named ‘being
nearer to the toilet’ as the reason. While women sleeping beside the
exit were much more likely to be within easy access of sleeping
Chris Jeffrey, marketing manager for Innkeeper’s Lodge, said:-
“Through previous research we’d identified various groups of guests
that display different routines when unpacking clothes and
belongings, but we were driven to see if there are any routines when
it comes to sleeping habits.
As accommodation experts we think we know a lot about getting a good
nights sleep but even we were a little surprised at the extent of
bed time routines, with only 7% of people not sleeping on a regular
side of the bed.
However it’s pleasing to hear that most people recreate their
creature comforts while staying away because we pride ourselves on
offering a very warm welcome and homely environment in all our
rooms, therefore smoothing the path to sweet dreams.”
