AFC Liverpool

Youth Round Up

Last weekend there were good wins for the Under 7’s and Under 14’s while the Under 15’s finished all square.

The Under 7’s returned to action for the the first time in two months to record a 5-1 win over Quarry Green, while the Under 15’s drew 2-2 against Stork Youth, a result that leaves them third off the bottom and one point ahead of Sunday’s opponents in the Eastham & District JFL.

The Under 14’s enjoyed a good win, as reported by their manager Daniel Blair:

Sunday 29/01/2012 (14:00hrs)
Sandy Lane, Lydiate.
AFC Liverpool (11) - Formby FC (1)
The AFC under fourteens produced an entertaining and bright display of football against Formby FC in cold and heavy conditions.
The lads demonstrated their ability to play controlled passing football and use every area of the pitch and create space to play and then exploit throughout the game. Formby started off strongly with fast and hard-working forwards looking to put the AFC defence under pressure but the game soon settled and AFC missed a couple of clear cut chances during the opening minutes, which signalled what was going to be the pattern for the rest of the game.
Excellent distribution from goalkeeper Jake Young resulted in some exceptional passing play down both wings accompanied by some strong running from deep positions by the midfielders helped them evade the high line and offside traps the Formby defence had planned.
Both Dave White and Matty Davies accepted the plaudits by grabbing three goals each thanks to the excellent service and opportunities created from the rest of the lads and goals for Ross Bailey (1), Josh Wilkinson (1), Declan Williams (2) and Joshua Wright (1) rounded off a good afternoons work from the lads.
