Another busy weekend at Formby Junior Sports Club - Franks Report

Once again it was a busy weekend at Formby Junior Sports Club. It was another very successful Saturday morning in the Inter Club Section with new members joining in all age groups. Over the weekend nearly all the Representative teams were in action. This included for the first time the new FJSC Under 6 team.


FJSC Under 16 White played away at Ormskirk Galaxy. The matches between these two teams are always very exciting games and this once again proved to be the case. It was end to end football throughout with chances at both ends. FJSC took the lead with a wonderful strike by Marc Whitelaw. However,it did not take too long before Ormskirk equalised and then scored again to take the lead. There were some great saves by both keepers, but FJSC continued to push and fight back and deservedly equalised with a James Hilton goal for a 2-2 draw. The Under 16’s have made an encouraging start to the season and are unbeaten so far in the Premier Division.

The outcome of the Saturday match between FJSC Under 12 Blacks and Silcox Villa was to decide which of the two teams would progress into the Hightown Premier League. FJSC started well but missed an early awardedpenalty after only two minutes. Not undaunted by this four minutes later BeratUlusoy gave FJSC the lead with a great header from a corner. Luca Massey then doubled the lead from another penalty and it became 3 nil before half time when Freddie Garvey headed home from another corner kick. There were no more goals scored after the interval as FJSC managed the game well. The Under 12team now proudly move into the Premier League. Man of the match was Harry McGrath.

FJSC Under 12 Blacks played LitherlandRemyca on Sunday. It was a very nervy game with very few chances. The deadlock was finally broken in the second half when Dominic Maxwell scored a solo goal for FJSC. It proved to be the winning goal and the Under 12’s move up to fourth in the Craven Minor Premier Division. Man of the match was Isaac Burns.

FJSC Under 11 Blacks travelled to Southport to play Southport Trinity Blues in what turned out to be an exciting game with both teams’ attacks coming out on top. The Blacks started well creating a couple of early chances, but it was Trinity who scored first. Abe Rice thenequalised for the Blacks. Trinity scored a second goal only for Abe Rice to burst through the centre and equalise for a second time just before half time.

The second half continued in a similar vein with Trinity scoring two more goals to take control of the game, but the Blacks regrouped, and Ollie Dean drove forward and whilst his shot was well saved, Thomas Donnelly tucked away the rebound. Trinity then scored to make it difficult for the Blacks but again Ollie Dean went on a run down the left wing and this time as he cut inside, he was rewarded with a well-taken goal. Jack Finley pulled off a superb fingertip save to deny Southport Trinity another goal and helped to set up a close finish as the Blacks pushed forward in the final few minutes looking for another equaliser. Thomas Donnelly went close with a clever chip right at the end but it was not to be. Man of the match was awarded to Abe Rice for his two goals and overall display.

FJSC Under 11 White played a Redgate Rovers Green team who were much stronger on the day. The highlight for the Whites were two

great free kick goals from Niall Brennan. Man of the match was George Hansen.

FJSC Under 9 White played Redgate Black. Archie Weir scored twice and there was also one goal each for Zac Hooson-Jones and Adam Patel. Redgate edged both halves. The second half was very much end to end attacking football. Man of the match was midfielder Rowan Jones. Reece Bagley was also excellent in defence. It was a competitive, exciting and sporting match from start to finish. Well done both teams.

On Saturday FJSC Under 8 Whites were in action against Netherton. After struggling to adjust to the pace of the game the Under 8’sfound themselves 2-0 down before DiegoFunes-Cervera scored a wonderful free kick before the break. In the second half Formby found their rhythm and thanks to some great play from Clayton Gilbertson, Josh Tallon, Josh Halpin and Thomas Crutchley it allowed Mason Stringer to equalise. FJSC scored the all- important fifth goal with five minutes to go. After a great save from goalkeeperHarrison Hughes, Jaiden Crosby and Edward Oliver combined to set Diego Funes-Cerverafree to slot the ball under the Netherton keeperfor the decisive goal. On Sunday FJSC Under 8 Whites opponents were Southport Athletic. The Whites played some lovely football as they continued their development. On the scoresheet were Josh Tallon, Thomas Crutchley, Mason Stringer and Clayton Gilbertson.

The FJSC Under 8 Blacks match with Crosby Stuart was possibly the best match of the entire weekend. FJSC could not have gotten off to a better start with goalkeeper Harrison Hughes launching a huge goal kick the full length of the pitch. The ball bounced high and landed in the Crosby net. It was Harrison’s first goal for his team. Crosby soon equalised before Joseph Kenyon bagged a screamer just under the bar. Crosby Stuart took their chances and leapt into a three goal lead by half time.

A second half battle ensued as FJSC created chance after chance. Joseph Kenyon added two more goals to his tally bringing the game to 5-4 and he also hit the post. There was amazing last ditch defending from Finn McDerby, Ryan Lamb and Jack Williams. Harrison Hughes made a string of fine saves to thwart the oppositions attacks. Huey Stevenson and Will Roberts battled really hard for their team and were solid throughout the second half. Crosby grabbed a very late goal after an edge of the box scramble. Man of the match was Joseph Kenyon for his hat trick and his constant end to end battling. The second half displays of every member of the Under 8 Blacks was exceptional. It was a fantastic match.

FJSC Under 8 Reds took a two goal lead against Churchtown Athletic with goals fromZac McHugh and Joel Wright. Churchtown Athletic came back strongly and scored three times to lead at half time. The second half was another good competitive half from both sides with a goal from Zac McHugh to give him another brace and further goals from Churchtown. James Hannan and Joel Craven played half a match each in goal for the Redsand produced a number of good clearances along with good distribution to their teammates from goal kicks. Mason Todd produced a strong defensive display alongside Tom Murphy in another encouraging FJSC Reds performance.

FJSC’s new Under 6 team played their first ever match on Sunday when they played Formby Community FC in the Sefton Junior Football Development League in Thornton. It was a fun packed game in which all the boys from both teams thoroughly enjoyed the morning’s football. After three fifteen minuteperiods of play honours were even. The two teams congratulated each other at the end of the game. Scoring the goals for FJSC were Beau Brodrick, Jacob Given and Archie Phenna. Finley Duffin, Daniel Johnson, Matthew Miles , Rory Roberts, Harrison Weir and Oliver Parrish also played very well in a very pleasing squad effort. All the boys are now looking forward to their next match.


The Year 4/5 Section is proving to be very popular and the possibility of being able to play two matches instead of one is getting closer each Saturday. Just a few more boys joining in each of these two age groups would make a huge difference to Inter Club and alsoto the distinct possibility of forming two new FJSC teams as well. The Year 6/7 group is also developing well. All the younger age groups also continue to improve.

The Year 4/5 match resulted in a 5-4 win for the Yellows over the Sky Blues. Scoring in the match were Alfred Shenton, Archie Weir, Nate Daniels, Lucas Lewis, Jacob Davies and Zac Hooson-Jones. There was also an exciting Year 6/7 game with Thomas Donnelly, Abe Rice, Sam Uttley, Evan Hughes and Isaac Dey all scoring.
