JUNIORS | Weekend Round Up (September 22nd-23rd)
Positive showings for younger age groups
It was a great weekend for West Under-11s as they defeated Urmston Meadowside Santos at Hardy Farm. A Ted Christon hat-trick, a George Roskell brace and one from Isaac Marshall ensured West a 6-4 win in a thrilling encounter.
Meanwhile the Under 12’s also played out a thriller as they drew 3-3 Alderley United Warlocks at home. Sam Maher will get the plaudits for his hat-trick but it the whole team earned the credit with an excellent performance with ‘heaps of heart’ against a very good Warlocks side.
Mixed Start for Under-9s
The Under-9s Eagles kick started their Purple league campaign with a fine 3-0 victory over Trafford AFC. Goals from Sacha Lerebours, Frankie Farman and Nico Malik set them on their way with Isaac Power earning the player of the match award.
In the Red League, it was a somewhat tougher start for the Under-9s Owls who lost 9-4 to Mobberley despite a pair of braces from Jude Pinson (2) and Oliver Copley-Gould (2).
Goals, Goals, Goals for Under-13s
The Under-13s don’t do dull games with no less than 25 goals between the Badgers and Magpies games at the weekend. Unfortunately for the ‘Badpies’ they were both on the end of heavy defeats both at home and on their travels.
The Badgers were defeated 12-3 away to Wythenshawe Amateurs Pumas as they were forced to play much of the game a player down. Despite that they continued to create chances with the goals coming from Kayden Power (2) and Joel Longworth.
At Hardy Farm despite a Josh Fookes brace and a penalty from Jack ‘The Hitman’ Haworth an under strength Magpies were beaten 7-3 by Wilmslow Town Panthers. The Magpies are 7th in Division 3 whilst the Badgers are 9th in Division 4.
First defeat of the season for Under-17s
Playing away to Sale United Under-18s the Under-17s suffered their first loss of the season. Having initially been 2-0 at half time West rallied back through goals from Mohammed Adel Forjani, Theo Peters and Padraic Murphy. Howeve,r it was not to be as despite an excellent performance they succumbed to two goals eventually going down 4-3 to leave them second in the league after three rounds of games.
Under-15s Girls still finding their feet at higher level
It was a second defeat on the bounce for the Under-15s girls on Saturday losing 6-2 at home to Unicorn Athletic. The day didn’t start well with only 10 players available and the girls were 2-0 down before Alice King handed the 15s a lifeline. However a lack of goalkeeper exposed them and it was 5-1 before a superb individual effort from Ruby Cole scored a late consolation with Unicorn adding a 6th with the last kick of the game.
