AFC Liverpool

Youth Reports 20th November 2011

Youth team reports for the week ending 20th November.

Under 7’s

A great display by the lads today against our closest rivals Memphis ended with us winning 4-1. Goals from Paul, Finley and an own goal put us three up before we conceded a sloppy goal late on in the first half. After the break the lads regrouped and continued to play their normal football with Soullyman making it 4-1. Man of the Match went jointly to Soullyman and birthday boy Caidan.

Under 16’s

Hillfoot 1 AFC Liverpool 1

The Under 16s got a hard earned point with a 1-1 draw against a strong and aggressive Hillfoot. Everyone was expecting goals in this game after last weeks results that seen Hillfoot win 6-0 and the Young Reds winning 8-1 but there was very few chances created during the 1st half. The best of which were when John Edgerton cut in from the left wing and hit a shot from 20 yards but it was well held by the Hillfoot keeper and then Rhys Jones burst through the defence but again the Hillfoot keeper was alert and came out sharply to save at the feet of Jones.

AFC were ahead within 5 minutes of the restart. Centre half Matthew Dowling started and finished the move when he stepped in front of the opposition forward to intercept a pass. He then played it into James Petches’ feet and continued his run; Petches then clipped a ball into Jones, who cushioned his header over the full back’s head and into Dowling’s path who then smashed home from 12 yards out to make it 1-0. The Reds almost put the game to bed after the ref had said there was only a minute left to play when Edgerton narrowly missed a Jones cross from the right wing. It was 4 minutes later when Hillfoot got a corner which was headed out but only for the corner taker to pick the ball up again and deliver a superb cross back into the box that was headed home from 6 yards to earn them a point.
