AFC Liverpool

Under 14’s Extend Unbeaten Run

AFC Liverpool Under 14’s journeyed to play Formby JSC in the league this Sunday to try and extend their current unbeaten run of 11 games.


Sunday 27th of November 2011 (2pm):  Smithy Green, Formby.

Formby JSC (u14) vs AFC Liverpool (u14)

AFC Liverpool started the game with a very determined attitude and played some fast flowing football that was a credit to their ability and application. Ryan Patterson produced a fine display at right back and he helped produce most of the attacking play in the first 20 minutes, backed by his very good all-round display. James Tyrer raided down the left flank on numerous occasions from left back and was supported by Josh Wilkinson in left midfield.

During one of those left sided attacks James was brought down in the penalty area which resulted in the referee pointing to the spot. Danny Dooley stepped up and took the spot kick only to see it well saved by the Formby keeper; however Danny was aware enough to turn the ball into the net during the resulting penalty box melee. Sustained pressure from the AFC attackers in harrying the Formby defence caused one of the opposition to mishit a clearance and see it loop over the stranded keeper taking the score to 0-2. Dec Williams converted another penalty and Matty Davies latched on to a good through ball to score before half time and give AFC a good lead going into half time.

Half time – Formby JSC 0-4 AFC Liverpool

The AFC dominance continued into the second half after a slow first five minutes. Good midfield displays from Patrick Blair, Danny Dooley and Dec Williams helped create some bright attacking football that brought applause from the crowd at times. Both Luke Banks and Josh Wright took full advantage of some of the offensive play and scored a goal apiece and Dec Williams rounded off a good personal display by scoring his second.

The score line could have been much more if it wasn’t for a fine display by the Formby keeper who made several very good saves and one in particular from a well hit long range curling effort from Patrick Blair which the keeper pushed away one handed.

Overall a good robust performance which fully deserved three points and gave enough encouragement going into the Cup Semi next week to think a spot in the Final is achievable.

Full time: Formby JSC 0-7 AFC Liverpool
