MINI SOCCER FINALS
Three close and exciting Mini Soccer Finals were played at The Rookery,
In the Jim Rourke Cup (Under 9), Southport FC Juniors Yellow and Redgate Rovers Yellow produced a real thriller with both defences proving very hard to break down. Just as it looked as though extra time might be a possibility, Southport FC scored and this was enough for them to take the Cup by 1-0.
The Under 10 Charity Shield saw Ormskirk FC take a two goal lead in the 1st half only for Southport Trinity Blue to pull a goal back after half time. Despite pressure from Southport Trinity Blue, Ormskirk FC held out to win the Shield 2-1.
The Wilf Jenkinson Cup (Under 10) was also close run with Formby JSC Rangers scoring in the first half and increasing the lead to 2-0 after half time. This stung Hesketh Colts into action and they reduced the lead with a well taken goal but were unable to force extra time with the Formby goalkeeper making a couple of excellent saves to preserve his team’s lead. The match ended 2-1 in favour of Formby JSC Rangers.
All three games produced end to end football and were a credit to their Managers and Coaches and thoroughly enjoyed by all the spectators.
