    Saturday 24th June

The Squad travelled to the Cheshire Headquarters at Moss Farm with having played only 1 game together the previous Wednesday
               

       
Therefore it was always going to be a difficult game for us. 1st half was a case of digging in and defending against a well organised side who knocked the ball around well and to good effect.

Fortunately Jamie Coles(keeper) & our back four of Joe kimpton, sean andrews, Dave McDermot & Sean holt held firm & kept  the ball out of our net.

A little chat at the interval seemed to gel the team, with the midfield of Ben dufton kelly(capt), reiss smith, Leighton Clarke, Adam Walker & lachlan pote having some success.


1st sub saw Paul Keenan replace Adam Walker & soon Wirral took the lead with a neat bit of play and a well taken goal from Leighton set up by Paul. Wirral created and could of converted for our 2nd but it wasn’t to be. Crewe squared the match with a ball straight through the heart of our defence and the M.O.M duly put it past the advancing Jamie.

Wirral 's 2nd sub Ben Grover (u16 player) came to replace the energetic Kane welding who covered every blade of grass in his role as lone striker. With 4 mins left Crewe’s goliath of a sub had his 1st touch of the ball within minutes of coming on & it fell right in front of Crewe’s  M.O.M who poked it past Jamie to put Crewe 2-1 up.

Wirral tried valiantly but on the day Crewe deserved their victory. Wirral subs not used Jack marshal (keeper), Tom Grubb & Kyle Platt (u16player).

Wirral play mid Cheshire next sat in a must win game and hope other results go our way. Once again thanks to all the players for their commitment and also our players families for their support. Mike Melling manager
