All FJSC teams had excellent matches played in very challenging windy conditions last weekend

All Formby Junior Sports Club’s Representative teams had excellent matches played in very challenging windy conditions last weekend.  




FJSC Under 14 Blacks played their Skelmersdale League match against Ormskirk Barca with a 45mph cross wind to contend with.  Alfie Holden gave FJSC the lead after seven minutes but Ormskirk soon equalised.   The score remained 1-1 into the second half.  Ormskirk then went ahead but Archie Ogden came to his team’s rescue with well deserved goal to level the match at 2-2.


FJSC Under 13 Blacks got back to winning ways by defeating Southport Hesketh Whites 3 nil away in the league. The first half was a battle against the elements as a strong wind blew across the pitch and both teams found it difficult to create chances. Riley Higgs made a good save to deny Southport Hesketh and FJSC’s best opportunity came from a penalty towards the end of the half after Ethan Murphy had found space and broke clear of the defence, only to see his shot stopped on the goal line by the hand of a defender.  The resultant penalty was well struck but saved by the Southport goalkeeper and the first half finished 0-0.


The second half saw FJSC passing the ball around more quickly and looking to find space on the wings.  The team was rewarded early on when Patrick Fleming converted from close range to give the Blacks a deserved lead.  Ethan Richmond then added a second, and Josh Kearney went close to extending the lead further after some good work from Abe Rice in midfield, but his shot was well saved. Ethan Richmond scored his second of the game in the final few moments as he ran onto a long pass forward by Abe Rice and drove the ball low past the advancing goalkeeper to make the final score 3 nil for FJSC. Man of the Match was awarded to Abe Rice who looked lively throughout, got an assist and was a constant threat to the Southport defence. FJSC Under 13 Blacks remain in second position in the Championship Division.


FJSC Under 12 Whites were in action against Southport Trinity Blue.  It was their firstofficial match for a few weeks and all the boys were really up for the challenge. FJSC had the advantage of a strong wind behind them in the first half and dominated in terms of territory but didn’t manage to take advantage only to be caught by a counter attack and concede a goalto  make it 1 nil to Trinity at half time. All fourteen boys battled very hard against the wind in the second half. Harry Ball was outstanding in goal making a handful of brilliant saves. Trinity extended the lead but FJSC were rewarded for their constant work all over the pitch when Lucas Lewis chased back to tackle, dispossessed a Southport Trinity forward and fed William Madutlelawho pushed forward and squeezed the ballunder the keeper for a great goal. FJSC continued to press looking for an equaliser that didn’t quite come.  Trinity scored a third goal from a fast break with a couple of minutes to go to make the final score 3-1. It was not the result FJSC wanted but it was a superb performance by everyone and showed a huge improvement from the match againstTrinity earlier in the season.


FJSC Under 11 Whites played Southport FC Yellow at Deansgate. FJSC  had the wind in the first half and took full advantage with excellent set pieces from Oscar Buch-Platt.  A whipped in corner made the first goal which was finished with a close range header from Jacob Davies. Jack Richards added a second with a calm finish from another corner before Oscar Buch-Platt was rewarded for his fine delivery with a ball that curled straight in.


Isaac Jones and Zac Hooson-Jones added further goals before half time. The second half was tougher going but some fine finishing from Jacob Davies and Zac Hooson-Jonesadded to the score before Southport scored a well-deserved consolation late on.  See the team photograph above of the Under 11 White squad.

FJSC Under 11 Blacks went into the gameagainst Formby Community FC in good form in the Craven Minor League having not lost a game yet this season.  FJSC started well with Caden Walker and Ben Webster gaining some control in the centre of midfield. With Luke Millington and Louis O’Connor probing on the wings, it was Luke Millington who found the bottom corner of the net after some good build up play to put FJSC 1 nil ahead. With the wind making play difficult for both teams, just before half time, FCFC worked the ball well creating a good opportunity to equalise which Oscar Phillips in goal did well to save.


FJSC started the second half quickly and some great individual skill from Charlie Richardson saw him pass a number of FCFC players before smashing the ball into the back of the net to double the lead. Five minutes later Charlie Richardson hit the replay button to make it 3-0 and FJSC were in control after some good break up play by Finley Scott. Good defensive play from Ellis Coyne, Alex Barr, Leo Fagan and Alfie Forsyth saw OscarPhillips rarely tested in goal.   However just before full time FJSC lost the ball in midfield which gave FCFC the chance to break quickly and score. Man of the Match was Alex Barr.


FJSC Under 10 Blacks got off to a great start in the match against Southport FC by scoring in the first minute.   The whole team played well with Joseph Kenyon, Finn McDerby, Rory Rankine and Harley Evans all on the scoresheet.  There were some very good assists and through balls particularly fromJacob Holton.  George Croughan, Harley Evans and Joseph Kenyon also contributed with assists as well. Max Fairhurst was solid at the back and with Henry Moors in goal helped to ensure a third successive clean sheet.  Albie Graham also played very well in the centre of midfield.


FJSC Under 10 Reds after recent good team displays were not at their best against Formby Wanderers who played well.  Defender Oliver Crouch tackled tenaciously and was Man of the Match.  Tommy Collins scored again and captain for the day Joel Wright also worked hard.  


FJSC Under 9 Blacks played against a very strong Southport FC Whites.   Goalkeeper Max Byford made a great save from underneath his cross bar in the first half.   Jackson Ebo gave the Blacks the lead in the second half after an assist from Noah Underwood.  FJSC grew in confidence and from an Ashley Jones assist  Jackson Eboscored again to double the lead.  Southport finished the match strongly drawing level with two goals in the last five minutes.  Man of the Match for a strong midfield display was Noah Underwood.  


FJSC Under 8 Blacks were at home toSouthport Trinity Black.  The game got off to a great start with FJSC scoring inside the first ten seconds with a well worked kick off routine.  FJSC continued on the attack which led to more opportunities and further goals.  The whole team worked hard for each other giving FJSC a healthy lead with the game under control. Jack Brown had an excellentgame scoring six goals.   The Player of the Match award was shared by Joseph Woodward and Otto Johnson.


FJSC Under 6 Whites played a well organised Vision team.  It was a very evenly contested match.  Arthur Higgins scored twice.  His second goal was from a free kick which finished in the bottom corner of the net.  In an exciting end to a very good match FJSC trailed by just one goal but there was not enough time left to score another.  Noah Ignatowicz was unlucky not to score, hitting the post twice.  Cormac Nice, Anders Carter and Harry Brown didn’t stop running and gave everything until the final whistle.  Arthur Higgins was Man of the Match.


FJSC Under 6 Blacks had a great game withAkidemy.  It was a

competitive match that could have gone either way. FJSC had a lot of chances and hit the post on more than one occasion. All the boys tackled well and all battled hard.  Man of the Match was Joshua Wright who never gives up and continues to put pressure on the

opposition.  Joshua ended up bagging fourgreat goals through pure determination. The Referee’s Man of the Match was TeddyMarron

who made some great tackles and smart passes throughout and was unlucky not to score a goal.


Thomas Mitchell produced another captain’s display and was involved in everything andpulled off some brilliant saves in goal in the last third to make sure of the very narrowwin. Ollie Jones was again the engine in midfield and is becoming a good tackler. MaxHealey and Dylan Woods worked hard throughout making some excellent tackles and moving the ball on for the attackers. ColeJones and Teddy Marron again working well, with Cole's ability to find space becoming a real asset. Tayo Popoola is fast becoming thefirst choice goalkeeper. He played the first third in goal and pulled off some brilliant saves yet again.  When playing out Tayo is also becoming a driving force in midfield.  The boys are beginning to develop into a good little team.
