Under 10’s  recorded their highest win of the season with a 10 – 0 away win at New Brighton Saints. Anna Cull (3), Taylor Mayes (3), Ellen McGowan (2) and Yasmin Deplidge (2) scored the goals, whilst Taylor Mayes was player of the match.
Under 12s had another tough game against top half opposition in Manor. They created most of the chances in the game, but were thwarted by a resolute defence and good goalkeeping. When Manor scored from a loose ball at a corner with a few minutes to go, it looked as though the visitors were heading for a “smash and grab” raid on both points.  However, Upton continued to create chances and Elizabeth Sullivan, having been thwarted by the keeper on more than one occasion, struck a sweet finish from the edge of the area to level the game. The team sprit, as all the substitutes ran on to celebrate with the players on the field, emphasized the great team spirit. Elizabeth Sullivan was player of the match.
Under 14 teams came face to face in the first “derby” between girls teams at Upton. The first half was a little muted, as both teams seemed uncertain about playing competitively against each other, but Upton opened the scoring when Aira Temporal’s chipped cross was headed in at the far post by Ellen Harding. The game picked up in the second half and Rangers equalised when Isabel Nolan was put through and held off the defenders to slip the ball home. Both teams created chances in difficult conditions, and both goalkeepers made excellent saves in the mud. Emily Sullivan, who had earlier hit the bar, restored Upton’s lead with a cool finish one on one with Sarah in the Rangers’ goal. Rangers looked to have equalised near the end when Jodie Williams’ long distance chip beat Charlotte in the Upton goal – most people in the ground, referee included, thought it had gone in, but the ball had actually landed on the back of the net. Charlotte Landrum, in goal for Upton, was their player of the match.  Jodie Williams was Rangers’ player of the match.  A great effort by all the players on both teams.
Under 16s were next to use a deteriorating Overchurch pitch, and got back into winning ways and ran out 5 – 1 winners against Delta Colts.  Abbie Bateman scored 3, Louise O’Brien and Katie Rutter one each, whilst Holly Smith’s hard working performance earned her player of the match.


Under 11’s had a tough 4-4 draw against Peninsular Stars with goals from Aaron Finlay, Rhys Jones, Michael Pearsall & Lewis Harrison with Ewan Nolan Man of Match

Under 12’s got back to winning ways 3-1 against Peninsular Stars with 2 goals from Guy Stratton and 1 from Greg Saville with Dan Cardus Man of Match

Under 13’s beat West Kirby Wasps 4-1 with 2 goals from Charlie Weir and others from Connor Davies & Liam Siddorn with Connor also Man of Match.

Under 14’s overcame a poor first half performance to run out 5-1 winners against New Brighton with goals from Alex Pitt, Mitchell Duggan, Joe Murray, Scott Billington and George Thomson who was also Man of Match.

Under 15’s with 4 wins in 5 and a spirited peformance agains a strong Glenavon team  took to the pitch expecting a tough but close game against a Manor team who had also had some decent results recently. However with injury and illness leaving only the bare bones 11 for Upton it was to prove a very difficult afternoon. Despite getting off to a strong start with some excellent wing play Upton found defensive lapses led to them being 5 down at half time. Although there was a positive rsponse in the second half Manor ran out comfortable winners, playing some excellent passing football on a very boggy pitch and were good value for their eventual 7-0 win. Upton will need to regroup and show some character in their next match. Standout performances from Casey and MoM Perryman, whilst Ives did well as an emergency full back and Parry had a very strong last 15 minutes. Back to the drawing board etc etc.
