AFC Liverpool U16s win Adam Bell Trophy

AFC Liverpool are proud to confirm that the Under 16’s secured the Adam Bell Trophy on Wednesday Evening at Burscough’s Stadium.

With First team manager Derek Goulding and Reserve team manager John Moran in attendance, AFC Liverpool’s Under 16’s secured the trophy in a one sided 3-0 victory over Arriva Youth.

The reds were in the ascendancy right from the off and took the lead after 5 mins when a David McElnay cross looped over the opposition goalkeeper.

The reds didn’t need such luck with James Woods and Daniel Currie controlling the midfield to ensure that from an early stage the result was never in doubt.

The reds continued to press for a second goal without success until on the stroke of half time Tom O’Sullivan nodded in a right wing cross to make it 2-0.

In the 2nd half AFC Liverpool made a number of substitutions without losing control of the game showing the strength in depth of the squad.

A nasty looking injury to Steven Grey which resulted in a red card for the offender from the opposition marred the 2ndhalf which ended with Lewis Hogg scoring the 3rd for a well deserved victory.

Its was a great night for the Under 16’s with a good turnout from AFC Liverpool fans and the support of the first team and reserve team manager. Paul McDonnell can now focus his squad on the league title challenge and the Liverpool County F.A. Cup Final.

For any fans wishing to attend the details are as follows:

Thursday 26th March 2009 Kick off 6.30pm at the Liverpool County F.A. Liverpool Soccer Centre, Walton Hall Park, Walton Hall Avenue, Liverpool, L4 9XP.
