Peter Brown Craven Minor League

Match Reports Week Ending February 11

Under 8 - Redgate B 1 Town Green 5

TOWN Green threatened to make hard work of this game but ultimately ran out comfortable winners in a game that nonetheless remained competitive throughout.

The 1st half was a relatively scrappy affair that was brought to life by a thunderbolt opener from Dan Brady, putting the away side ahead. Redgate B rallied well after conceding, and equalised with a long range effort that their battling deserved. A draw at half-time would perhaps have better reflected the play, but just before the interval Josh Dean nudged the ball home after a scramble in the Redgate penalty area.

The 2nd half saw Town Green play with more élan and a number of excellent crosses from Josh Dean on the right wing threatened to produce a goal. Eventually Thomas Bradley connected with one, neatly volleying home to score his 3rd goal in 2 games. At 3-1 Amir saw his excellent shot glance a post, but Town Green went 4-1 when excellent play down the left wing allowed Josh Dean to score his second from a well-judged cross. The 5th came when Aiden Darcy was upended in the penalty box after a surging run, Dan Brady making no mistake with the resulting spot kick.

Even at 5-1 Redgate continued to battle and nearly scored their 2nd when they hit the post, Michael Power managing to tip the ball away from a Redgate striker trying to convert the rebound. In the end this was a good performance from Town Green which should give them confidence going into next week’s all important game against Formby Junior Sports Club A.


THE countdown to the Southport Weekender is now well underway, one of the World’s best loved indoor music festivals, is celebrating 20 glorious years with a staggering 39 events to date!

Back to rock the North West of England this coming May, Southport Weekender celebrates it's 40th Birthday..!

Selling out the first week of January 2007, a massive 4 months in advance, thousands are being turned away due to such high demand for tickets. An achievement in itself and a testament to it’s ongoing success and ever increasing popularity... One of the weekender fans told us:- "It is one of the most influential events in the world for the music industry and even film stars like Samual Jackson have beg to get in! I can not understand is why the locals do not know what it is? It really shocks me that Southport has such a massive hit for 20 years now, on it's doorstep, yet no mention of it is on one TIC website! Also most people in Southport still do not know what it is or want it is all about. This is an international event and it is a credit to Merseyside and to Southport. It is about time it is recognised as such."
