Wirral District Football Association
Saturday 24th June
The Squad travelled to the Cheshire Headquarters at Moss Farm with having played only 1 game together the previous Wednesday
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.
Jamie Coles(keeper) & our back four of Joe kimpton, sean andrews,
Dave McDermot & Sean holt held firm & kept the ball out
of our net.
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.
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.
'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.
tried valiantly but on the day Crewe deserved their victory. Wirral
subs not used Jack marshal (keeper), Tom Grubb & Kyle Platt
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
