Ainsdale Juniors 1 Southport FC Yellow 1

Ainsdale dominated the opening minutes but it was Southport, on 7 minutes, who scored with their very 1st attack, the ball being forced over the line as Ainsdale failed to clear.   There were few further chances at either end in the first half as the midfielders battled for supremacy.

The opening minute of the 2nd half saw Ainsdale keeper Ryan James make a great save tipping the ball past the upright.  A minute later a shot from Ainsdale’s Conor Bligh was parried by the Southport keeper into the path of Joel Styche who rammed the ball into the net for a deserved equaliser.

Ormskirk WE 1 Birkdale S 3

Back to winning ways for Birkdale S with a 3-1 win v Ormskirk.

Birkdale’s 1st came from Casterton with a great long-range effort.
Their 2nd came from hard work on the right from Oyebola who crossed the ball and Welford was there to finish.

Ormskirk took advantage of a bad mistake by Birkdale to make it 2-1.  With 5 minutes to go Birkdale got a free kick outside the box. Casterton hit the ball towards goal and Welford was on the keeper and managed to put the ball in the back of the goal.

Under 11 - Jaguars 2 Birkdale 9

The weather conditions were wet and breezy as Jaguars entertained Birkdale.  The game started evenly with not many chances being created but after a while, Birkdale started to take control and once their 1st goal went in it was not long before the Jags conceded more goals,  Some of the goals were superbly taken by Birkdale but unfortunately the Jags didn’t do themselves any justice and gave the ball away far to easily when put under pressure. The half time score was 0-6.

After a half time team talk the Jags came out for the 2nd half to try and get some pride back and Dan S and Ryan C were both moved up front. The Jags started to battle more and were unlucky to concede a couple more goals.  At last Jaguars scored a deserved goal through Ryan C. 

More chances were created and the Jags started to play some good football and were looking more dangerous with Ryan C scoring his 2nd.  A long range shot by Josh H went through a crowd of players but unfortunately hit the inside of the post and rolled along the line.  Jags second half performance was much improved and the final score was again a little harsh.

Mom was Ryan C who caused Birkdale a lot of problems in the second half linking up well with Josh H.

Under 16- West Lancs 2 Billinge 5

WLC worked hard initially to deny Billinge with the wind behind them but Billinge started easily the brighter with Peate, after good work by Fredders on the left’ having his shot saved well by home keeper.  In the 16th minute, a through ball from Connolly to Bradshaw saw him win the race with the home keeper and nicked the ball round him to roll into the net.  3 minutes later a 2nd was scored with a double 1-2 between Connolly and Fredders from deep midfield. It ended with a great drive as Connolly burst into the box to finish well to the left of the home keeper. 

All the pressure was on West Lancs as a corner swung over and Hook’s superb drive from the edge of the box was just over.  Billinge did not have it all their own way however and Colts pushed on and a fabulous cross by Dixy was finished with a clinical header by Rob to halve the advantage.

The 2nd half was poor from Billinge’s point of view but, despite this, on 42 minutes, it was 3-1 to Billinge who scored after a great through ball from Deano found Bradshaw who in turn romped through the home defence to finish wide of the keeper.  4-1 to Billinge arrived on 60 minutes with a well rehearsed free kick seeing another Bradshaw drive wide of the keeper as space was created.

Colts persistence was rewarded when a defensive error then gave them hope. A slip in the area allowed their impressive striker, the battling Elliot Corrigan, in to score.  It was left to Deano to atone for an earlier miss to make it 5-2 and seal the game with 2 minutes to go with a drive to the right of the home keeper again after impressive work in midfield by Connolly.  

Mentions must go to Jack making an impressive first full game debut at centre back and Jacko who worked tirelessly as did Crawford in the 1st half.  MOM Connolly/Bradshaw

Broadcasters aiding BNP growth by sidelining smaller political parties

BY overlooking developing political parties for local and national debates, broadcasters are indirectly aiding the rise of the BNP, New Party National Spokesperson Richard Vass said on 28 October that:- "UK politics is more than simply career politicians and extreme views, but this is all people feeling disenfranchised from the political process are being offered." The New Party is calling for a Question Time for smaller developing political parties to present their views either locally or nationally. Broadcasters should take their role seriously and aid the process of political debate not stifle it, says Vass. "From local issues to national concerns, small parties need the chance to show they are viable alternatives to the major ones. I call on all broadcasters to take up the cause and let the smaller parties set up their stall and argue their corner. If you don't then it will be the BNP thanking you at the next election," says Vass. Email us your views on this to or news room via:-
