Match Reports Week Ending 15 February 2009
Under 9
The final 8 teams fought it out for a place in the semi finals of the Jim Rourke Cup.

Ormskirk FC 1-1 Town Green Panthers
(aet – Town Green won 2-1 on penalties)
In a game that was packed with everything, including 2 teams right up for the game.

A couple of mins into the 1st half Ormskirk were awarded a free kick right on the edge of Town Green’s box, Matthew Hampson Birks stepped up struck it so powerfully beat everyone yet the post got in the way.  From this point it just turned into a end to end 1st half with both teams having numerous chances but were finding it hard to get past to goalkeepers in exceptional form. A nil nil scoreline seemed just.

The 2nd half just carried on where the 1st left off, with both teams attacking yet it looked to me that these 2 goalkeepers wanted to be here all day and the half similarly ended goalless. 

But there are no draws in the cup and extra time began. Neither team was prepared to settle by just defending and just before half time Town Green scored as the ball bobbled over the line. 

In the 2nd half Ormskirk pressed and pressed and following a superb through ball from Andrew Torr to Matthew, he ran in on the goalkeeper, who again made himself big and as a result Matthew fired narrowly wide. Then from the goalkeeper’s kick Ormskirk attacked again, Ball crossed from the right and Luke Charnock shot narrowly wide but then with 4 minutes to go Ormskirk attacked down the left ball fed to Luke Charnock fired the ball on target which took a wicked deflection and went in. 

It then went to penalties which Town Green won 2-1.

Ormskirk men of the match were Kieran Leese Terry, Luke Eckersley, Fraser Connell, Josh Fearon, Andrew Torr, Matthew Hampson Birks, Jack Charnock, Luke Dwane and Luke Charnock.

Under 10
Trinity maintained top spot after seeing off there most local rivals in style.

Southport FC Juniors 0-5 Southport Trinity

Trinity made the short trip to Meols Park hoping to bounce back from last weeks cup defeat to a very impressive Redgate Yellow.   The Blues started very strong with Lewis Harwood and Sam Wallbank both testing the keeper early on, Cameron Rimmer also went close before Sam Wallbank opened the scoring following up a Lewis Harwood shot.  Juniors tried hard to get into the game but Andy Thorpe and Jamie MCormack kept things tight at the back.  Lewis Harwood then doubled the lead when the keeper kicked a clearance straight to him which he fired into the bottom corner. 

Trinty never let up going into the 2nd half creating some excellent chances. Lewis Harwood added the 3rd, firing low across the keeper and then completed his hat trick from just outside the box after good work from Fabrizio Anelli.  Southport Juniors struggled to cope with Trinity Blue as they flowed forward Cameron Rimmer crossing for Andy Thorpe to head in.  Man of the match was hard to pick after so many good displays but Andy Thorpe got it after a fine display.

The league took 2nd place this week as it was decided which teams will meet at Burscough in the Cup Final.

Billinge 1-0 Formby JSC

Billinge progressed to their First Cup final since joining the Craven Minor League last season with a display of guts, determination and no little skill as they out fought a very good Formby side.  The way Billinge played was personified in the form of Tom Saxon and Elliot Bradshaw who were both outstanding today and Fredders who took his goal well and who created lots of problems for Formby's defence.  It was always going to be a close game with both teams' League record almost identical and so it proved.

Billinge set their stall out early on with the game played mostly in Formby's half but then Formby woke up with a shot which hit the top of the bar, came out and was then hit over the bar. This was to be Formby's only real clear cut chance of the game, other than a goal mouth scramble after 25 minutes which Hamilton gathered gratefully.  The Formby keeper playing almost as a sweeper, playing the ball into touch when pressured by Attrill and Fredders and it was Fredders whose point blank range shot was blocked for a corner after being fed by Attrill with Bradshaw then heading over which saw Billinge finish the half the strongest.

The 2nd half was only a minute old when the only goal of the game arrived with Bradshaw winning the corner after a typical driving run. He fed Jones from the corner whose peach of a cross to the back post was met by Fredders and his downward header was powered into the bottom corner to make it 1-0. 

Formby A are an excellent side and their determination was met with the resiliance of Saxon, Connolly and Ayre, the latter on as a 2nd half substitute. The defence held firm and it was they who won Billinge the game as they shut up shop, ably assisted by Jacko on at left Midfield, in the latter stages of the 2nd half. 

As Formby chased the game , Deano who came on as a 2nd half substitute , twice fed Fredders who had one shot narrowly wide and one which just dipped over the bar.

Overall an excellent result against a team who came to win and who would feel very disappointed not to force the game to extra time.  MOM- Saxon and Bradshaw
