Frank Rourke's Report from Formby Junior Sports Club
Formby Junior Sports Club’s sixty-third season came to a close at the weekend. Inter Club members enjoyed their last session and some of the younger Representative teams played in a tournament at Southport F.C.s Pure Stadium. Football was help on twenty-nine weekends at Deansgate Lane Playing Fields with only four postponements due to the weather which was the best for many years. The eight month long season has been a great success with many new members joining at every age group.
Now FJSC will immediately start to prepare for the new 2022-23 football season which will commence again at the beginning of September.
Throughout the season on the FJSC website all appearances and goals scored have been recorded for every boy playing in the Inter Club Section and for every boy playing for a FJSC Representative team.
