Jaguars 12 Southport Black 4

After a disappointing friendly result earlier in the week the Jags started with their opening game of the season against Southport Black. Weather conditions were not great with grey wet skies and light blustery winds but this did not deter Jags from an excellent and much improved all round team performance. Jags always looked dangerous with the pace of Josh H, Ryan and Dan causing all sorts of problems for the Southport defence. This was backed up with some excellent midfield play from Josh A, Kieran and an excellent captain’s performance from Tyler.

The Jags got off to a flying start with some wonderful linking up and passing which was great to see, this led to the Jags scoring very early on in the game which settled the nerves and led to a hatrick for Dan in the first ten minutes, this was followed by goals from Josh A, Ryan and Tyler. Southport did pull one back before half time.

The 2nd half started with the Jags making a couple of changes at half time which meant 1 or 2 players had to play in unfamiliar places but this did not deter from a great all round team performance. Southport kept battling away and never gave up and got some deserved goals but unfortunately for them whenever they scored the Jags attacked the other end and always kept well in front with further goals from Dan, Josh H and Ryan. Well done to Southport for never giving up and always trying but they caught the Jags on a good day and they thoroughly deserved to win.

The full time score being 12-4 with Dan being man of the match not just for his goals but also for his contribution as well as he is getting better all the time.

Thanks to all the parents from both teams the game was played in a great spirit and was well refereed.

Southport FC Juniors 3 FormbyJSC 8

Southport FC juniors got the new season off to a bad start, with several players signed up from the Liverpool area, failing to arrive for the match with Formby JSC B and having to play Tom Mawdsley in goal, a position he had never played before. By half-way through the 1st half he had already showed he was more than capable of playing in that position, pulling off some good saves. Then came a well worked goal, for SFCJ, that was finished off by Luke Timmis. At 2 to 1 the game could have gone either way and it remained that way to half-time.

Unfortunately when the 2nd half kicked-off Formby were quick off the mark and soon went further ahead and has hard as Southport tried they were unable to pull a goal back. Formby continued to attack and got their just deserts with a number of goals coming. Still Southport battled on and despite being 8 to 1 down played on to the end with 2 more consolation goals coming from Mark Elwood and Malik Zbaeda. Full credit to Formby for a superb performance and also to SFCJ players for never giving up.

As well as Tom played in goal he would rather play out and if there are any non-registered (in the Craven league) ‘keepers, contact Richard Bassey on:- 07740 064261 or attend training at Meols Cop on a 7 Wednesday 2009 until 8.30pm.

Formby JSC A 2 Billinge 5
The 1st game of the season, on paper at least, looked as though it would be a tight low scoring game on a small pitch on a very windy day. That's not the way it panned out, as early season rustiness with new personnel and a lack of communication within the back 5, caused Billinge to make a couple of untypical errors to allow Formby back into the game at half time.

The 1st half was shaded by Billinge having a little more of the ball and they got off to a flyer after new signing Peete, whose pace and aggression caused Formby trouble all through the game, was upended in the box for Bradshaw to dispatch the resultant penalty with aplomb.

It was 2-0 7 minutes later as Peete rounded off an excellent passing move to make it 2-0. Then an innocuous free kick, which was hit into the box eluding defenders, forwards and keeper, ended up in the bottom left hand corner of the net for 2-1. Billinge then allowed a decent ball into the box to sit up unchallenged and the as Anthony came to gather the Formby forward nipped in to make it 2 to 2 at half time.

The 2nd half was mostly Billinge as they scored from 3 headers from corners/free kicks the first from a semi fit Fredders on at half time, from a Peete corner and then from 2 superb Bradshaw deliveries Deano and Owen wrapped up the game. This after Billinge made 4 substitutions at half time to change the shape of the game and a change the formation with 10 minutes to go.

Add to that the woodwork being struck by Peete and shots just over the bar from Jacko in the 1st half this was a deserved win away against last season’s runners up. It was though, a much closer win than the scoreline suggests and Formby battled the whole game to deny Billinge space and could have had a 3rd goal themselves with the score at 3-2 to Billinge midway through the 2nd half.

Mentions must go to Jones whose communication stood out from a very quiet performance and Saxon who dealt with threats from the left in a composed fashion. Connolly was excellent screening the back 4 and although Bradshaw was not his usual dominant self he had a great deal of influence on the game in the later stages.

MOM Peete

Ainsdale 6 West Lancs Colts 3

It was a good start to the season for Ainsdale, despite only having 11 players available. Lee Tierney scored 1st for Ainsdale within minutes of the KO, closely followed by 2 goals from Kyle Deary so Ainsdale were 3 to the good by 15 minutes. Deary finished off his hatrick then Tierney managed his 2nd from a ball up the field by Deary. Before the end of the 1st half Colts managed to get 2 back leaving the half time score 5-2.

Some good performances on their debuts for Ainsdale by Danny Callaghan, Aaron Lovelady, Ben Sawyer, Zac Velesco and Tom Bolton, which helped Ainsdale take control of the second half with Captain Jamie Segar leading by example. Tierney scored once more, a penalty after being brought down in the box, which led to Ainsdale's 6th and final goal. Colts managed another, which came shortly before the full time whistle. Final score 6-3

A good performance all round, but Ainsdale's MOM accolade belongs to Paul Simms who worked tirelessly throughout the match.
