AFC Liverpool 5 Chellwood 0.

The rain didn’t dampen the team spirit today; right from the whistle the boys took control of the game and produced some great football and communication going on between the boys. Beck opened the scoring with a great run and chipped the goalie 1-0.  Their heads held high they took the game to chellwood who had a few good chances, only to be denied by our keepers AFC then produced four great goals by beck and a scramble involving cam and tom, tom getting the other goal.

Great team effort, onward and upward.

Man of the Match Beck HB. (a great team performance by all the boys)

Sunday the 9th of October 2011.  Sandy Lane, Lydiate.

AFC Liverpool 4 v Birkdale Blacks 0

A much improved Birkdale Blacks arrived at Sandy Lane this week determined to overturn the 6-1 defeat they suffered at the hands of AFC earlier in the season.  This clearly took the AFC lads by surprise as it took the whole of the first half of the game for AFC to show anything like the effort, skill and passion that they had displayed in their previous games.

The first half didn’t go past without the odd player within the team displaying their usual attributes, Liam Werth, James Tyrer and Tom Keller all showed determination and effort to shake AFC out of their poor start.

The second half saw one or two changes and a change in formation, with Declan Williams and Joshua Wright introduced.  The substitutions paid off early in the second half with a goal.  A superb through ball from Ross Bailey was latched onto by Declan Williams who saw his shot saved by the Birkdale keeper, however the keeper could only parry the shot and Joshua Wright was on hand to score a classic centre forwards goal.

Declan’s name was soon on the score sheet, when he finished another good AFC move with a smart finish.  The two early goals seemed to knock the stuffing out of Birkdale and third and fourth goals came fairly quickly.  The third goal was again scored by Williams after some superb wing play from Tom Keller.  The fourth was finished by ‘Wrighty’ after he latched onto a goal bound attempt from Declan Williams.

The result certainly didn’t flatter AFC and the 4 goal cushion allowed the players to relax and saw some fantastic pieces of skill, the first from Patrick Blair on his own half way line and another from Josh Wilkinson who produced a ‘back heel stepover’ which completely fooled his opposition.

Throughout the game AFC’s defence never looked in danger and they should be all proud of the clean sheet!

AFC Liverpool 1 - Neston Nomads 3

Neston Nomads beat us once in last year’s league and drew the reverse fixture, so in the pouring rain of the first A League encounter of the season, there was a fair amount riding on the game.

In what was to be an ill tempered game, peppered with poor refereeing decisions; AFC Liverpool were to see two yellow and two red cards.

As might be imagined, the challenges were stern from both sides, but, after 20 minutes, a through ball was met cleanly by Jimmy Rainford outside of the penalty area and was cleared. However, the momentum of the opposing player saw him topple over Jimmy and the Referee brandished a Red Card.

Liam Hall, who had been operating well as Centre Half donned the keeper’s shirt and play restarted.

Shortly, before the break, the reshuffled reds had been having the better of the play, but when a ball was knocked towards the touchline by Alexander Northover, the opposing player gave chase, collided with him and both players fell. The referee pointed to the spot and up stepped their Number 10 to make it 1-0.

In to the second half and with AFC looking the better team, the play stepped up a gear. A through ball to Callum Morrison in the area allowed him to lose his marker, skirt around the keeper and shoot at the open goal. His shot was deliberately handled by a Neston defender on the line with the keeper well beaten, but he still found the back of the net, to level it at 1-1.

As tempers frayed on both sides, Alexander Northover was incensed by the referee’s decision not to award a free kick for an obvious foul right in front of him, but the ensuing dissent from him at the referee, earned him a straight red.

Ultimately, the lack of a recognised keeper and missing two players was to take its toll on the rest of the team and Neston took advantage adding to their earlier first half goal, to take all three points.

Our man of the match was Dion George.

AFC Liverpool Under 16s 1 South Liverpool 0

the under 16s finally got there season up and running with an excellent performance against South Liverpool. The young reds took the lead on 3 minutes when James Petches beat 2 defenders to get to the by-line before crossing for Rhys Jones to place his left footed volley in the bottom corner. AFC continued to dominate despite playing into a strong wind coming in from the River Mersey. The boys kept creating chances throughout the half only for wayward finishing or the South Liverpool goalkeeper preventing us from extending our lead. The 2nd half was more of the same with James Cope who has recently been selected to represent Merseyside school boys having very little to do in goal for the reds. It was another player who will be representing Merseyside that came closest to putting us further ahead, midfielder Leighton Kearns struck a thunderous effort from 30 yards which crashed against the cross bar. Kyle Wilson, a recent signing from Accrington Stanley almost marked his debut with a goal when he rose highest from a Rhys Jones corner only for the keeper to pull a great save off from his powerful header. Another excellent display of attacking football brought the win but it should really have been by a more comfortable score line

Meister 1 v 2 Afc liverpool

As the saying goes this was definitely a game of 2 halves on what was a wet and blustery day .

We kicked off with the wind behind us and tested the meister goal repeatedly so it was only a matter of time before the deadlock was broken as Matty tyrer sent in an inswinging corner which  was met by Olly Charles to finish for his first goal of the season.

We continued to push for the second goal but to no avail .

The second half started with meister pushing on our goal when totally against play, a well worked move from midfield put Marley Hamilton through to score our second . With the spell of pressure it was inevitable that meister would score but Danny obrien in goal was on form and looking for a clean sheet and was well on his way when a dubious free kick was given. It was hit high into the box and carried with wind finding the head of a meister player and into the net .Everyone worked hard to see the game out 2-1 to Afc LIverpool.

Oonly downside was a possible hamstring pull to Ben Waydock .well done lads and the lads at meister.

Next game Saturday 15th October 10.00
