Southport FC Youth 3-3 Fylde Youth

Lancashire FA Under 18 Cup

FOR a side still unbeaten over either 90 or 120 minutes the exit from 2 cup competitions via the lottery of penalty shoot outs is difficult to take. Southport U18s went into Sundays Lancashire FA Under 18 Cup game against AFC Fylde on the back of a run of form which had seen them score 26 goals in 5 games. Their opponents were the side that would have been their opponents in the Fa Youth cup had it not been for their last penalty defeat at Newcastle Benfield. With a point to prove Southport started more brightly than their full time academy counterparts forcing early saves and having efforts cleared off the line in a dominant first half an hour. The breakthrough eventually came with Adam McFarlane-Johnson capitalising on Fylde's failure to clear a goalmouth scramble.  As the game settled Fylde found their rhythm, levelling before half time and taking an early second half lead. With Southport chasing the game Fylde snatched another against the run of play and 15 minutes to go were 3-1 up. Southport showed dogged determination and captain Sean Weston was the embodiment of everything good about this promising side. He lead by example as the side refused to lie down and take defeat. Substitute Cameron Dalgleish, returning from a spell on the sidelines through injury, got on the end of a cross from fellow striker Will Meredith to give Southport hope and as time ticked on Southport looked dangerous. Jake Young bagged the equaliser shortly before the death but with no extra time in county competitions it was straight to penalties as the referee blew his whistle.  The Fylde keeper who had kept them in the game during the first half an hour was their hero again as he made 2 excellent penalty saves. 

Final score Southport U18 3 - 3 AFC Fylde Youth (AFC Fylde won 4-2 on penalties).

Man of the Match:- Sean Weston (SFCY).
