Congratulations to Formby JSC Under 9 Reds and Under 9 Whites for winning their Cup matches
Congratulations to Formby Junior Sports Club Under 9 Reds and FJSC Under 9 Whites for winning their cup matches at the weekend. Unfortunately FJSC’s Inter Club football and all Representative team matches at Deansgate Lane had to be cancelled at the weekend due to heavily waterlogged pitches. The only matches which did take place were some away fixtures. Well done to all the boys of the FJSC teams who played in some dreadful weather conditions.
FJSC REPRESENTATIVE TEAM MATCHES
FJSC Under 9 Reds played away at Southport Athletic Blacks in the Craven Minor LeagueShield Trophy First Round. From the kick off FJSC pressurised Southport and it didn’t take long for the Reds to start to control the game. FJSC had some early chances and were unlucky not to take the lead on numerous occasions with some great shots from SebHoughton and Josh Robinson. The Under 9’scontinued to press, and it paid off when Adam Tyler-Holland scored to put FJSC into the lead. Southport quickly hit back to level, but FJSC did not let that deter them. Some great work from midfield put Adam Tyler-Holland through only to be brought down twenty yards from goal. Up stepped Archie Taylor to hammer in a super strike to put FJSC back in the lead. Another great play from FJSC led to Isaac Ignatowicz once again assisting Adam Tyler-Holland to score his second to increase FJSC’s lead before half time.
The second half started well for FJSC with some great pressure only to see a clearance deflect into the net to bring the scores to 2 – 3. Isaac Ignatowicz and Adam Tyler-Holland were unstoppable with Isaac assisting Adam with his third goal. New signing Owen Edney had a great debut assisting Adam Tyler-Holland with his fourth goal of the game. Both sides pushed for goals and after some dramatic goalmouth scrambles each team conceded own goals bringing the game to a close with FJSC earning a well-deserved 6-3 win. The standout performance of the game with his great passing and assisting in four goals was Isaac Ignatowicz, earning him the man of the match award. See the photograph above of the very happy Under 9 Reds squad at the end of their match.
FJSC Under 11 Blacks continued their Premier League fixtures in the Hightown Junior League with a game against Crosby Stuart. The match started at a fast tempo and after ten minutes Caden Walker opened the scoring with a nice right footed shot into the bottom corner to put FJSC 1-0 up. The game went back and forth but a solid defensive performance meant that Crosby Stuart were restricted to the odd long range shot which the returning Oscar Phillips dealt with well in goal. Before the end of the half Caden Walker then hit a long range shot/cross from the edge of the touchline which nestled neatly in the back corner of the goal to allow FJSC to go in at half time 2-0 up.
The second half saw FJSC push on again and a well worked goal saw Charlie Richardson finish to make it 3 nil. The third goal saw Crosby Stuart go on to attack and score with a deflected goal which looped up over Oscar Phillips to make it 3-1. This kicked FJSC back into action with Caden Walker finishing to make it 4-1. Finally a well worked move saw Ellis Coyne play a great ball through to Louis O’Connor who finished perfectly to finish the game 5-1 and leave FJSC Under 11 Blacks top of the table for now. Caden Walker was Man of the Match.
With a depleted squad due to illness ,FJSCUnder 11 Blacks travelled to Southport & Ainsdale for their Sunday game. The start of the game saw both teams playing good football as they tried to figure each other out. With a defence of Leo Fagan, Alex Barr and Charlie Burton ensuring that S&A where limited to a few chances FJSC started to build in confidence. With Ben Webster and Caden Walker in central midfield pressure started to build and eventually told after another FJSC corner saw Charlie Burton pick up the loose ball but then fouled as he went through on goal. The resulting penalty was scored by Louis O’Connor to allow FJSC to go in at half time 1-0 up.
The second half saw FJSC play with the wind and resulted in most of the play being in the S&A penalty area. Half way through the second half a well worked move saw Louis O’Connor put through on goal and fired a shotinto the bottom corner to make it 2 nil. Alfie Forsyth, Finley Scott and Luke Millington ensured that the pitch was stretched with great wing play but the third goal would just not come. S&A then scored a breakaway goal to put the game 2-1 and FJSC had to dig deep as pressure was applied while S&A looked for the equaliser. With five minutes left Caden Walker found a pass through to Louis O’Connor who lobbed the on rushing goalkeeper to make it 3 -1.
A special mention to Oscar Phillips in goal who was not one hundred per cent ensured that his team won with his commitment and endeavour. Man of the match was hat trick hero Louis O’Connor.
FJSC Under 14 Blacks were in action against Silcox on Saturday. Dylan Madeley equalised with a header from a Charlie Garvey free kick in the first half after Silcox had taken an early lead. Silcox took the lead again midway through the second half. FJSC pressed for the equaliser but conceded a third goal on the break late on.
FJSC Under 12 Whites had a tough away draw in the quarter final of the cup against league leaders JN Sports Inter. FJSC competed very well against an excellent team with chances at both ends of the pitch. FJSC did not concede in bunches as they have sometimes done but JN were able to keep the scoreboard ticking over with some clinical moves and finishing. The FJSC boys displayed the perfect attitude and fight right to the end and were unlucky not to have at least a couple of consolation goals. If they keep up this determined effort the team will pick up wins even in the difficultPremier League.
FJSC Under 9 Whites Saturday team’sunbeaten start to the season came to an end against quality opposition in Holy Rosary. From the first whistle Holy Rosary took control of the ball with some excellent possession football but couldn't get close to FJSC Whites goal through great team defending and work rate from FJSC. In a tight game the Whites created the better chances in the first half and on another day could have had a few goals but Holy Rosary held firm with some last ditch, very good defending.
The second half followed a similar pattern with both teams working hard but the breakthrough came for Holy Rosary with a shot from distance. FJSC quickly rallied and nearly got themselves level with shots fromSeb Hodgson and James Smith hitting the post within minutes. It was a great match for both teams to be part of and it was a shame there could only be one winner.
In tough weather conditions FJSC Under 9 Whites bounced back from the day before to grind out a very exciting cup win against a very good Lower Breck team. FJSC Whites took the lead early on through Theo White’s sharp finish and the team had a few chances to grab another but did not take it. Lower Breckseized the opportunity and scored two quick-fire goals before half time to put themselves 2-1 up. The second half saw FJSC apply pressure from the moment the whistle blew but it took man of the match Jack Haggart to change the match in FJSC’s favour with two wonder goals to get his team in front again. With time running out Isaac Higgins put a long searching pass through to James Smith to wrap up the win and put the team into the next round of the cup.
FJSC Under 8 Whites played away at Redgate Rovers Green. The Under 8’s pushed from the word go. Charlie Ormesher weaved in and out of the Redgate team with his quick feetand with a great pass found Charlie Vernon allowing him to slot the ball into the net to open the scoring. Redgate had plenty of chances to equalise but Joshua Gillespie was a rock in defence closing down every opportunity that fell to the home team. Harry Hughes and Charlie Ormesher linked up really well, passing through the Redgate defence andallowing Charlie Ormesher to extend FJSC’s lead.
In the second half Charlie Ormesher scoredwith a beautifully taken corner kick. Oliver Parrish and Austin Faraday gave their all and were also very unlucky not to get their names onto the scoresheet. Charlie Ormershermanaged to bag himself five goals with some outstanding skills. Charles Fazakerley had an amazing display in goal keeping a well-deserved clean sheet and earned himself theman of the match for some outstanding saves.
FJSC Under 7 Whites transferred their home match to Southport Athletic Blacks’ playable pitch. FJSC started the game superbly at a high tempo and raced into the lead with some good early goals from Luke Clarke. Also scoring for the Under 7’s were Franklin Chignell, Logan Haggart and Ben Donnelly. A special mention to Thomas North who kept a clean sheet in the first half before playing outfield in the second half. Maxwell Rathbone, Archie Jones and Lucas Byrne also played well as the team bounced back from recent results.
FJSC Under 6 Whites played Bull Benfica. The boys played some lovely football. Noah Ignatowicz and Leo Rogers worked well together up front causing trouble for the opposition at every opportunity. Bull Benfica also had a couple of good chances which were thwarted by Sonny Clarke in goal. Defending and working as a team was crucial and Cormac Nice and Archie Parrish showed this in abundance. It was another excellent and close match. Leo Rogers scored all three of the goals for FJSC.
FJSC Under 6 Blacks played Formby Community FC. Like all the matches played on Sunday the weather conditions were dreadful and deteriorated as the match went on. The boys tried their best against a strong team and had chances. Thomas Mitchell and Theo Thomas managed to score for FJSC. Thomas Mitchell was man of the match. Cole Jones showed some great touches and came close to scoring his first goal. Max Healey, Tayo Popoola, Teddy Marron and Dylan Woods also made a determined effort.
