Highlight of the weekend at FJSC, Under 11s gaining their first point of the season - Franks Report

The highlight of the weekend at Formby Junior Sports Club was the Under 11’s gaining their first point of the season in a thrilling match. All the boys had before the start of the season only ever played in the Inter Club Section and had no experience of competitive football at all. Through great enthusiasm the team, a mixture of year six and year five boys, have worked hard in training, coaching sessions and at Inter Club. Their weekend result will be a huge lift to the whole squad and the dedicated management team of JarlathO’ Hara and Clive Lewis. The club congratulates you all.


FJSC Under 11 Whites played Birkdale United in what turned out to be a fantastic match. FJSC seemed buoyed from recent improving performances and started the stronger of the two teams. There were several good chances for FJSC to take the lead beforeBen Harris finally scored with a long-range effort. The Under 11’s doubled their lead when Ben Harris scored again after a good assist from Luke Greenwood. To be two goals aheadwas new territory for the boys and it showed as FJSC stepped off the gas and conceded two goals that were well finished by Birkdale. The half-time score was 2-2.

A reminder at the interval to get back to basics seemed to work and FJSC started the second half well again. A wonderful long range freekick from Lucas Lewis put FJSC back in the lead. The rest of the match was really open asboth teams created loads of chances. Birkdale scored two more goals to take the lead for the first time and also missed a penalty. More chances came and went for the Whites and with only a few minutes left FJSC were awarded another free kick in a similar place to the last one. Lucas Lewis struck anotherstrong shot but this time it was saved by the keeper but the ball ran loose. Ben Harrispounced to tap in the equaliser and his hattrick goal. To say the boys were happy is an understatement and they deserved it too. There were great performances all over the pitch. Well done to both teams for playing out a cracking game full of end-to-end action. See photo above of the FJSC Under 11’s team.

FJSC Under 13’s were in action against a very good Maghull team in a the Hightown League. Maghull scored twice early on but FJSC slowly got back into the match. Dominic Maxwell reduced the deficit with a great finish and soon after Max Ryan levelled the score with a long shot. FJSC then took the lead with two second half goals from Dominic Maxwell again and Charlie Garvey. In an exciting finale Maghull pegged FJSC back to 4-4 scoring the equaliser with just two minutes to go.

FJSC Under 12 Blacks took on Hesketh Colts Red in an away match. It was a tough game for FJSC with few chances created and the Colts defended very well throughout. While there were some notable performances from the players, this week the man of the match was awarded to Charlie Knowles.

FJSC Under 10 Whites were also involved in another high scoring match at Southport FC. Their opponents opened the scoring with a well worked goal before two quick fire goals from Isaac Jones and Zac Hooson-Jones gave FJSC the lead. Southport equalised just before half time which set up an exciting second half. A thrilling end- to- end match followed whichincluded another strike from Zac Hooson-Jones and a goal from Archie Weir. With multiple chances at both ends at the final whistle honours were even with eight goals being scored. There were some excellent performances across the team but the man of the match award was shared by goalkeeper Matthew Crutchley and defender Reece Bagley.

FJSC Under 9 Reds were the visiting team against an in form Redgate Rovers Yellow. The first half was a competitive game with both teams evenly matched. Despite chances the first half finished goal-less. The second half was a similar affair to the first half but Redgate took a two goal lead. The Reds were unlucky not to score with numerous chances and a saved penalty along the way. James Hannan was confident in goal making some fine saves for the Reds with all outfield players giving a battling committed team performance. The Coaches man of the matchwas a very difficult pick as all the players gave it their all, but eventually Zac McHugh took the accolade.

FJSC Under 8 Whites put in another good team performance against Southport & Ainsdale Blues. From the first whistle FJSCwere well organised and played withconfidence. The opening goal came from midfield dynamo Seb Hodgson with a trademark strike from distance. Henry Williamson worked himself space in the area with his tricky skills and hit an unstoppable drive off the post. There were more goals from man of the match Jack Hansen and FJSC’s box-to-box midfielders James Smith and Jack Haggart.

FJSC Under 7 Whites started the game really well against Burscouugh pushing to try and get the first goal. Burscough broke away and slid the ball past the FJSC defence to one of their attackers who calmly slipped the ball into the back of the net. It turned out not to be FJSC’s day. Each time the Whites broke away Burscough’s keeper reacted well and made a number of very good saves. Burscough took their chances and added to their lead.

A good start was made in the second half by FJSC and chance after chance came including a Jack Brown shot which went narrowly wide. Charlie Ormesher then worked his magic weaving in and out of the Burscough defence to narrow the deficit for FJSC with two quick successive goals with little time remaining.Harry Hughes was awarded with man of the match award for his amazing efforts and fornever giving up.
