So after the heart breaking event on Friday morning where 2 people lost their lives and many injured in the coach accident on the M53. All teams payed their respects before KO & held a minutes silence. Our thoughts and prayers are with the families at this difficult time.
Not many games to report on this weekend due to county cup & weather postponements.
Despite a bright start the Dragons fell to their first defeat of the season against West Kirby United Red. Some great attacking play got the Dragons into a deserved lead, West Kirby adapted well to handle our attacking threat and score a couple of quick fire goals to not only level the game, but later take the lead.
The Dragons put themselves in a difficult position in the second half being behind, however a late and spirited fight back within a goal. Harvey and Caiden scoring to give West Kirby a late scare. Unfortunately, we couldn’t get the draw, but the players will have gained a lot from the game despite the defeat.
POTM went to Harvey who netted four times, but crucially battled relentlessly for the game despite West Kirby having him marked by at least two players at all times.
The Lions also suffered their first defeat of the season against Rakers White. The score line was an unfair reflection as we defended well at times and our attacking play created numerous chances, but we simply failed to capitalise on them.
Credit to a Rakers side that scored some superb strikes and worked hard until the final whistle to prevent us from getting on the scoresheet. A tough day for the Lions, but like the Dragons, they can learn a lot from the defeat and be better for it. Credit to Jaidan who stepped up as our back up goalkeeper.
POTM went to Archie who had a superb attitude throughout the game and won the majority of his one on ones, he also put together some excellent passes and never stopped working until the final whistle.
The Youth lads got their first win at home against Neston Nomads Raiders U18’s. Goals from Louie Smith & Jack Cartlidge saw us take a 2-0 lead into the halftime break. Our Keeper Zack Gray also contributed to this as he saved a penalty late in the first half. Second half and it was much more of the same from the Ferry. Louie Smith getting a second to make it 3-0. Neston rallied and got one back but just couldn’t match the lads in fairness. So a well deserved victory in which it finished 3-1. Ben Duff & Louie Smith picking up MOM.
