FJSC REPRESENTATIVE TEAM MATCHES
FJSC Under 12’s Whites played GreenloonsFC Whites in a cup tie. The FJSC boys put ina superb team effort, illustrating the strength-in-depth that there is in the squad with everyone playing a part.
Ben Harris opened the scoring early on, latching on to a route-one goal kick from keeper Harry Ball. A long range free kick from Sylvan O’Hara was deflected off the keeper and finished assuredly by William Madutlela to make it 2 nil not long afterwards. William made it a quick fire brace after pouncing on a Lucas Lewis corner for the team’s third.
Evan Meehan came on at right wing mid-way through the first half and was first to the ball after a shot from Lucas Lewis was saved by the keeper for the fourth goal. William Madutlela, who was controlling the middle of the park, then slotted through to captain Ben Harris to make it 5-0. Noah Bate scored late on in the first half, with his trade-mark composure after latching on to a defensive error by Greenloons.
After a pulsating 6-0 first half FJSC added two further goals after the break. William Madutlela again teamed up with Ben Harriswho completed his hat trick and Lucas Lewis shepherded in a goalmouth scramble for the final goal to see FJSC Under 12 Whites win 8 nil.
FJSC Under 13 Blacks hosted Redgate Rovers in a cup match at Deansgate Lane on Sunday. FJSC took the lead when Charlie Knowlesswung over a deep cross to the back post where Patrick Fleming met it with a first time shot and scored to give the Blacks the lead. Ollie Dean came close to adding a second from a free kick, while at the other end Ethan Tucker, Evan Hughes and Sam Uttley kept the Redgate attackers at bay as the half time score remained 1-0 to FJSC. In the second half FJSC had chances to extend the lead and played some excellent footballbut found themselves down to ten players for the last quarter of the game. They held on and defended extremely well as a team, and in the final few seconds Ethan Murphy broke clear on a counter attack and scored to make it 2-0, and sealed a deserved win, putting the Blacks through to the next round. It was another excellent team performance with man of the match awarded to Ollie Dean, for his energy, work rate, determination and vision in midfield.
FJSC Under 11 Blacks Sunday team kicked off their cup campaign against Churchtown Jaguar Blacks Under 11’s in a match of last season’s Craven Under 10 Shield Winners vs Cup Winners. The game could not have started better for FJSC with Charlie Richardson latching onto a through ball within the first thirty seconds and finding the bottom corner to go 1-0 up. FJSC could not have played a better first half and every single player started strongly showing how much they wanted to win this game. Jags were limited to long shots and freekicks thanks to a brilliant defensive display by Ellis Coyne, Charlie Burton and Alex Barr.
With Caden Walker and Ben Webster ensuring no time was given in midfield to the Jags, it was Ben who won a dual in the centre and then played a perfectly timed through ball to Louis O’Connor who showed his calmness to put FJSC 2-0 up just before half time.
The second half continued much like the first half finished with a close battle all over the pitch against a very good Jags team. Halfway through the second half with Finley Scott and Alfie Forsyth stretching the play, another through ball saw Charlie Richardson controlthe ball and get past two defenders before finding the back of the net to make it 3-0. Jags gave everything and towards the end of the game, a penalty box scramble saw Oscar Phillips in goal make a quadruple save to ensure his third clean sheet in four games.
Nothing more could have been asked for from the FJSC Under 11 Blacks team and all came off leaving absolutely everything they had on the field. It was a very good all round team performance.
FJSC Under 8’s Blacks were at home to Southport Trinity Blues and the fixture was a great game. This new FJSC team had been improving each week and got off to a great start with a well worked team goal where Jack Brown slotted home from close range. As the game continued FJSC grew in confidence and all of the team were working hard for each other. Some excellent pressing from Eoin Follett lead to the ball falling to Jack Brown outside the area where he picked out the top corner and extended the lead going into half time.
The second half was end to end as both teams were all working hard. Eoin Follett converted a penalty with a great finish in the bottom left- hand corner. Joseph Woodward was then rewarded with a goal after some great pressing. Alfie Alston and Alfie Madigan put in brilliant performances in midfield. Otto Johnson had a great game in defence and Jarvis Evans produced a player of the match performance in goal with some superb saves that helped FJSC Under 8 Blacks gain their first win of the season. Congratulations goes to the whole squad as well as to Manager Stephen Brown and Assistant Manager Michael Follett. See team photograph above.

Luca Massey this time scoring to secure a hard fought win. Isaac Loxham-Keenan was man of the match.

Zac McHughscored a brace in the first ten minutes after linking up beautifully with Huey Stevenson, a combination that caused trouble for the opposition throughout the match.Josh Halpin, who dominated midfield continued to create chances for the frontline but FJSC didn’t extend their lead until Josh Halpin threaded a lovely through ball to DiegoFunes-Cervera to put the Whites 3-1 up at the break. Although there were a number of second half efforts on goal there were no further goals scored. Man of the match was Jaiden Crosby.
FJSC Under 10 Reds had a very closely contested match with Prescott Cables . FJSC Reds had much of the better chances but it was Prescott Cables who took the lead. Prescott managed to grab their second goal of the game on the counter attack, with barely any time to spare as the Reds chased an equaliser.
Brett McKeown was once again in fine form in goal for the Reds and took home the Player of the Match award. Tom Murphy also made a superb goal line clearance after Brett McKeown had made a crucial close range save. The Reds had no substitutes so it was a fantastic effort from the seven boys.

A determined second half effort saw the Whites close the gap on their opponents with Harry Hughes, Joshua Gillespie and man of the match Charlie Vernon all scoring. A late couple of Burscough goals finished the FJSC revival but it was a good second half response.
All of the boys played their hearts out and did amazingly well to get themselves back into the game which at half time seemed a massive task.
FJSC Under 7 Whites played their first away game and it was a fantastic team performance despite the rainy conditions. There were six different scorers for FJSC – Franklin Chignell, Logan Haggart, Luke Clarke, Archie Jones, Ben Donnelly and Lucas Byrne. Thomas North also played well. Another statistic from the match was the Whites had three different goalkeepers during the match.
FJSC Under 6 Blacks played Marina in a twenty-two goal thriller. It was hard to keep score as goals were scored at both ends of the pitch on a very regular basis. In the end only two goals separately the two teams with the Blacks just ahead at the final whistle. Thomas Mitchell, Theo Thomas and Ollie Jones were all scorers. Max Healey and Cole Jones also played well. The man of the match was shared between Thomas Mitchell and Ollie Jones.
