FJSC Under 12 White were buoyed by last week’s cup win and were determined to take that form to the league when they played Redgate Rovers Black. After an even start, Redgate opened the scoring before William Madutlela scored a superb solo effort to make it 1-1. For the remainder of the half, it was a familiar story with Redgate being more clinical and converting their chances whilst FJSC saw many shots go wide and crosses go across the face of the goal. It was 4-1 to Redgate at half time.
Redgate capitalised on several mistakes in the second half to run up an 8-1 lead before a spirited comeback was made by FJSC. Good pressure from the front three created the chance for Evan Meehan to stay composed and find the back of the net. Ben Harris managed to get a clean shot away under pressure for the third goal and then after a lovely run and cross from Luke Greenbank, Lucas Lewis neatly slotted home to make it 8-4. FJSC pushing to close the gap but Redgate added two more goals before the end of the match.

It was atight first half in which Ormskirk were unlucky not to lead hitting the post, having a shot cleared off the line by Gregory Houghton and a fine save from Matthew Crutchley. FJSC took the lead against the run of play with a fine pass from Luca Mihai to set up Isaac Jones. A stronger second half from FJSC saw two further goals from Isaac Jones to complete his hat-trick, some fine saves from Matthew Crutchley who pushed Oscar Buch Platt close for man of the match. Oscar getting the nod for an industrious effort in the middle of the pitch.
FJSC Under 11 Black returned to the group stage in the Hightown League against RemycaU11 FC. With Remyca being top of the group by three points but having played one game more meant this was an important game. FJSC started strongly and controlled the tempo of the game without really creating much. Half way through the first half a great through ball saw Charlie Richardson time his run to perfection to leave himself one on onewith the keeper to put FJSC 1-0 up at half time.
The second half continued much as the first half did with FJSC creating good chances but for a crossbar and an unbelievable save from the Remyca goalkeeper saw the score remain at a dangerous 1-0. With ten seconds of the game remaining Remyca won a freekick on the edge of the FJSC area which the resulting free kick found the safe hands of Oscar Phillips and the final whistle. This result leaves FJSC top of the group with one game remaining. Man of the match was Charlie Burton.

It was the toughest game that FJSC have had this season and the boys eventually rose to the challenge in front of them. Despite getting an early goal through Henry Williamson’s deft finish FJSCwere pegged back and it took Jack Haggart’swonderful free-kick skills to put FJSC back in front with two fine set pieces before half time and a fourth added through a vicious strike from Seb Hodgson.
The second half was tense throughout with both teams not giving an inch and Southport FC got themselves back in the game with a couple of strikes making it 4-3. FJSC can thank man of the match Finley Cregeen for the win with some excellent goalkeeping and in the final minutes Henry Williamson put the game beyond the opposition with great pressing, winning the ball back and then having the composure to finish smartly past the onrushing goalkeeper.
