With 2nd placed Birkdale looking to narrow the gap on Formby B today’s game carried extra importance.

Birkdale United N 9-0 Hesketh Colts Blue

Birkdale made a bright start to this game, dominating possession right from the kick off.  The 1st goal came after only 2 minutes, scored by Liam Jackson.  After 8 minutes, Max Regan ran down the left wing and his perfectly flighted cross was met by the head of Liam Jackson and flew over the Hesketh keeper.  Birkdale continued to dominate the bulk of possession but didn’t add to their lead until a minute before half time when Liam Jackson completed his hat trick.

The 2nd half started in very much the same way as the 1st half had finished, with Birkdale making all of the running.  The 4th goal came after 6 minutes with a cross from Greg Rawsthorne, slipped into the net by Liam Jackson.  4 minutes later, the 5th goal came from a cross by Brodie Pike, knocked into the net by Luke Williams.  After 16 minutes, Liam Jackson picked up the ball on the edge of the penalty area and rounded the keeper to slot the ball in for his 5th goal of the afternoon.  Hesketh Colts only real chance of the game came after about 20 minutes when an under hit back pass left Nick Knight stranded but as he closed down the angle, the Hesketh Colts striker lifted the ball against the crossbar and James Frew cleared the rebound.  Almost immediately Birkdale took the ball down to the other end and a Liam Jackson shot was deflected into the path of Max Regan who tapped the ball into the net.  But Liam Jackson was not going to be denied a 2nd hat trick and grabbed his 6th goal of the game after 24 minutes.  The final goal of the game was scored by Liam Jackson after 27 minutes.  Birkdale did have the ball in the net one more time but Max Regan was adjudged to be offside. 

A good all round performance by Birkdale with a number of players showing a good level of work rate and commitment. The score could have been even more if all of the chances that were created had been converted. Joint Man of the Match this week were Liam Jackson for his seven goals and Max Regan for a strong performance on the left wing putting in some great crosses.

Nothing separated Town Green and Ormskirk Rangers prior to today’s games and with leaders Redgate Yellow only 2 points ahead, everything was to play for.

Town Green 3-1 Ormskirk Rangers

This local derby began with Rangers settling the better.  Rangers midfield moved the ball so quickly with Will Jones, James Kaye and Tom Bigland linking up well with Aidan Darcy upfront.  Shots from James Kaye and Aidan Darcy forced Town Green's goalie into some fine saves.  Tom Bigland showed blistering pace down the wing and got his rewards after he pounced on a goalmouth scramble to give Rangers the lead.  Josh Ackers and Jamie Barnes kept Town Green's chances to a minimum until the last seconds of the half when against the run of play Town Green's centre forward coolly slotted the ball past the onrushing stand in keeper Alex Wong. 

The timing of the goal was to shape the 2nd half, Town Green got a massive lift and began to push Rangers back. With both teams title ambitions at stake a draw was no good to either team and both teams went for the winner. It made for an end to end 2nd half with Town Green taking the lead.  Rangers created a number of chances one of these was a tremendous shot from James Kaye that crashed against the Town Green crossbar and over.  This was as good as it got for Rangers despite some goalmouth scrambles. Town Green killed the game off with the last kick of the game.

3-1 was especially tough on stand in keeper Alex Wong who sacrificed himself for the good of the team. The whole team were awarded man of the match for not letting heads drop and showing a great attitude and desire.  On the 2nd half display Town Green just about edged it but Rangers will look forward to the 2nd instalment when they meet again in the cup next week.
