THE ORMSKIRK AND DISTRICT SUNDAY LEAGUE would like to congratulate and thank Frank Jennings for 50 years service to grass roots football.
Frank received an award from the FA recently to recognise his years of hard work with the league and clubs.
THIS game was won by a single second half goal from Tyson Eyo. Salisbury hunted in well discipline packs, as the Kestrel’s surged forward in an attempt to break their opposition down. Chances went amiss for both teams with goal line clearances, woodwork taking a bashing and some embarrassing finishing before Eyo finished off a classic piece of football from Mick Boyle at the far post.
Standpark 0FC Parnells 6
FOUR first half goals from Danny Flynn put this contest out of the reach of Standpark, despite the outstanding performance from Mike Vernon who never gave up the Standpark cause. Neil Hume and John Saunders added to the Parnells’ tally before the end, leaving Standpark still seeking their first points of the season.
Fantail 4Bar Du Fay 1
FANTAIL made sure of no slip ups with two goals in each half against the Bar Du Fay. First half goals came from Connor Dickens and Carl Daulby without reply from the Bar. Alan Kelly and Rob Morgan completed the scoring for the Fantail with Michael Joyce squeezing in a consolation for the Bar in what was to be their best spell of the game. The Bar like Standpark will have to get use to life in the top tier before things get better, but if it helps not many teams come up and hit the heights in their first season in the top division.
Platinum M 6The Liver 1
THE LIVER found Platinum far too strong for them, despite Noel Newcombe grabbing what proved a consolation goal in the first half.
Hero Alan Morrell done the early damage with a brace along with an Andy Silsbury strike to get Platinum on their way, and second half strikes from John Wearing, Paddy McPaddon and Peter McCabe completed the day’s work.
Platinum felt they should have had more such was their dominance throughout this game, but three points and six strikes to their tally is good enough to take them into pole position at this early stage.
Coach & Horses 5Sacred Heart 0
THERE was nothing sacred about this performance from the Heart, as a young Coach & Horses side gave early warning with a goal from Joe Dolan direct from a free kick.
With Dan Barry running the show from midfield it was a wonder that the Coach only had one to show for their first half dominance.
This soon changed though as the second half produced a further four goals, with a brace for the impressive Barry being equalled from team mates Dan Fitzsimmons and Rod Talbot to take the Coach into second place.
Falcon 3MCA 3
IN WHAT was described as a brilliant game throughout, the points where shared in this six goal thriller between the Falcon and MCA.
The MCA got away to a perfect start with Brian Jones netting the only goal of the first half, this despite the end to end football being played by the two teams.
Mike Manning then bagged a brace to put the Falcon into the lead before James Dean made the game all even scoring for the MCA. Luke Scotland put Falcon ahead once more with Adam Taylor ensuring that the MCA left with a point as he cracked home the equaliser.
Civil Service 1Ambrose Ellis 4
A FIRST half brace from Kyle Brock began the victory for Ambrose Ellis against the new boy’s from the Civil Service. Though Ross Williams pulled one back for the Civil Service, they could not capitalise on their fortune and John Ellis crashed home number three before Brock completed his hat trick to secure the points.
Database 2Lanes End 3
DATABASE took an early lead with a Mike Gilbert goal that they protected for nearly an hour.
Then within minutes Lane End were ahead with goals from Alan Hass and Declan Gregson. Dan Hayden then gave them some further hope with a stunning equaliser and at last a point looked as good as in the bag. Lane’s End don’t give up easily though and following some intense pressure from Dave Smith near the end, the unfortunate Andy McGuirk could not believe it as his own goal secured all the points for Lane’s End.
