Formby Junior Sports Club- Franks Report 22nd May

Formby Junior Sports Club Under 16’s travelled to Rainford Rangers Inter last Saturday and after a slow start the team went on to play some excellent football to gain a very well deserved 4-2 victory.

Callum Davidson equalised for FJSC, scoring a very good individual goal by beating two Rainford players before unleashing a left footed shot from outside the area. Formbythen went 2-1 ahead before half time after a superb delivery from a Conor Leyland corner was met by the head of Andy Kimmance.

In the second half Rainford came out strong but FJSC defended well and extended the leadwhen Lucas Gornall scored from a penaltykick. The match was developing into a very exciting encounter and Rainford continued to press and pulled a goal back. It was very tense until Callum Davidson with a well-taken free kick made it 4-2 with his second goal of the match. It was his fourth goal in four matches.

Conor Leyland was man of match for some excellent deliveries into the box, especially from corners.

FJSC Under 11’s Sunday played Southport Trinity in midweek. It was very much a ‘’game of two halves.” Callum Gray, Dominic Maxwell and Luca Massey each scored in a dominant first half performance from FJSC. After the interval Trinity came back into the match and scored twice. Man of the match was Freddie Garvey.

On Saturday the FJSC Under 11 team was in action against L4. After a goalless first half Callum Gray gave FJSC the lead. L4 equalised with eight minutes remaining. When a draw seemed a likely result L4 scored again from a free kick in the final minute. Man of the match was Max Hall.

FJSC Under 11’s Sunday team played Southport Trinity again. The first half was very even with both goalkeepers being kept busy but there were no goals scored. FJSC took the lead from a Dominic Maxwell penalty after the interval. Man of the match James Cook added a second with a headed goal. Archie Ogden then scored two great goals. The first finishing well after a lovely weighted through ball from Dominic Maxwell and the second a superb header from a pinpointed cross from Charlie Garvey.

It was another good team performance from FJSC Under 10 Black. Their opponents Southport Hesketh started the game strongly.

Patrick Fleming playing in goal for Formby made an excellent save to deny Southport anearly goal. Formby then pushed forward and put Southport under a lot of pressure by creating several chances and were gainingcontrol of the game. The breakthrough camewhen Lewis Donoghue broke down the left wing and delivered a low cross to Thomas Donnelly who finished confidently from close range.

The second half continued in a similar vein but it was Southport who scored a goal against the run of play. FJSC responded well, and Thomas Donnelly scored his second of the game following a clever run and finish under the keeper. James Potts came close to adding a third goal, before Lewis Donoghue did manage to beat the Southport Hesketh goalkeeper to score. There was still time for one more chance when Ollie Dean dribbled into the box but his effort was thwarted by another excellent save. Man of the match was Thomas Donnelly for his excellent all round performance and two goals.

FJSC Under 8’s match with Hesketh Colts was played in very blustery conditions. Hesketh scored the only goal of this end to end match. Despite constant second half pressure FJSC could not draw level.

The match between FJSC Under 7 Black and Redgate Black was exciting from start to finish. FJSC were unlucky to concede three goals in the first half and not be on the scoresheet themselves. Joseph Kenyon, Rory Rankine and Finn McDerby all came close to scoring but the Redgate keeper was equal to the shots he faced.

The second half was a very different story. There were many great saves by goalkeeperHarrison Hughes and also some excellentdefending by Ryan Lamb and Finn McDerbywhich prevented Redgate from extending their lead. Rory Rankine had a blinder to earn man of the match and scored to reduce the deficit and with further hard work from Oliver Hall-Gleeson and Finn McDerby in midfield helping to supply the strikers, Joseph Kenyonwas able to score FJSC’s second goal. There were more shots from FJSC and a goal-line save from the Redgate goalkeeper but FJSC could not find an equalising goal that their efforts deserved.


It was another very enjoyable Saturday morning with lively coaching sessions and some very entertaining and fun games of football in all age groups.
