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
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
WEEKENDER'S 40TH BIRTHDAY SOLD OUT!!!
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."
