News and Results for Saturday 7th April.

Adlington Beat Kestrels (8-a-side friendly)
A heavy pitch, torrential rain, unfamiliar formation and a well-drilled long ball game proved to be the Kestrels’ undoing today. We matched them shot for shot but a bit more composure on their part saw them go  three up quite early. A goal back for us from Wilson nearly sparked a come back but the rain and boggy pitch proved too much and with us chasing the game we left a few gaps which Adlington exploited. All in all, a good test for us against a team from the highest division. We held our own and under different circumstances could easily turn the result around. MoTM for Joe. Consistent and energetic performance. Always looks up before receiving the pass to find an outlet and unlucky again not to get on the scoresheet.
Jaguars Beat Seedfield Lions (CUP)
WOW what a performance from the young Jaguars this morning. Having gone 0-1 down very early in the game the boys steadied themselves and started to play a passing game that was really pleasing to watch. The forward play combinations of Freddy, Ben and Luca supported by our wingers Luis and Max saw us score some fantastic team goals in each half. Our defenders Sam and Ned were rocks at the back today and after that early goal they worked hard to clean up any Seedfield attack. The overall performance today for a team that have been together for such a short period was the best so far. TEAM MOTM today, well done Jaguars.
Tigers beat Radcliffe Borough.
MOTM Mason.
Panthers beat Elton & Walshaw.
Great performance by the boys this morning, some great passing on a big heavy pitch with no subs, pleasing to see lots of ones twos coming off which we have been working on in training joint mom for Owen and Leo (scorer of 6 goals)
Pumas lost to Walshaw Panthers.
Pumas took advantage of the break in cup games to play top division opposition in this friendly. A good insight into the standard the boys are progressing towards and Pumas by no means disgraced, especially with two first team regulars on hols. Bobby (man of the match) top class between the sticks, having had almost nothing to do for many weeks now, he pulled off numerous top class saves, rightly gaining plaudits from all the parents and opposition coaches.  Chances few and far between for Pumas, but a good twenty minute spell in the second half may well have seen an equaliser, the best of the chances a low drive from Isaac well saved by the Walshaw keeper. A useful friendly, Walshaw deserving winners and plenty to work on.
