FRANK'S REPORT 10/04/17 10 Apr, 2017
Formby Junior Sports Club Under 14 Blacks won their last league match of the season and have become Under 14 League Champions of the Craven Minor League Championship Division. The Blacks got off to a great start and after scoring the first goal the team played with great confidence, never looked back and ran out comfortable winners.
Max Cowen-Carr led the way with five goals. Also on the score sheet were James Cunningham, Lewis Constable, Callum Richmond, Bryn Macy, Thomas Marsh and man of the match defender Matthew Grand. Cameron Colbourne and George Treble were unable to play in this match but also deserve mention for their significant contribution for the team throughout the season.
The Blacks could make it a League and Cup Double if they can win their cup final against Phoenix at Burscough FC on Wednesday April 19th, kick off 6pm.
Also with cup finals to look forward to during the next few weeks are another ten FJSC teams.

BOYS’ REPRESENTATIVE TEAM MATCHES
FJSC Under 13 Whites gained an important win against previously undefeated league leaders Southport Trinity Whites in the Premier Division.
The Under 13’s got off to a slow start conceding a penalty midway through the first half, which Trinity converted. FJSC equalised early in the second half from a Daniel Griffin penalty and went ahead when Tom Elder scored from the edge of the box. Southport Trinity drew level with ten minutes to go. In a thrilling finale to an action packed match the Whites were not to be denied and Joe Blanchard scored the winner with five minutes remaining. Man of the match in the 3-2 win was goalkeeper David Meadow.
FJSC Under 13 Whites are now one point behind Southport Trinity. Also in contention are Southport and Ainsdale Amateur Reds.
Luke Phillips scored for FJSC Under 12 Blacks in the 2-1 defeat by Ormskirk. James Wilson played well in defence and Sam Trainor worked tirelessly in midfield. The Blacks have now completed their league matches and have finished in a very commendable third position in the Championship Division.
FJSC Under 11 Blacks played Redgate Yellow. Lone striker Jacob Lewis scored the goals for the Blacks and was voted man of the match. It was a very good team performance.
The Under 9’s were also in action against Redgate Yellow. FJSC’s goal scorers were Lewis Parker, Jamie Simpson, Nathan Cousens and Corey Ashworth. Charlie Lynch made some good saves in goal. Gabe Bellemey, Jake Stanton, Harry Hale and Christian Maher all made important contributions in a good all round team display.
Dilan Sathiyanathan and Joe Hughes were the scorers for FJSC Under 8 Whites in a very close match against Redgate Black. Finley Richards was FJSC Under 8 Blacks man of the match in the closely contested match with Town Green.
FJSC Under 7 Whites played Redgate Yellow. The Whites continue to finish the season strongly with another impressive team display. Jacob Lynch, George Dent, Dylan Madeley and Jamie Jawook all scored in a great game.
FJSC Under Whites also had an enjoyable away match at Southport and Ainsdale Amateurs Blue. Max McBride and Lewis Forsyth were on target with goals.
GIRLS’ REPRESENTATIVE TEAM NEWS
With no weekend girls’ matches it is an ideal opportunity to report on the success of eight FJSC’s members.
