There were no mini soccer games this week but they should be back in action next weekend


Under 10s – another win, this time 4 – 0 away against Beechwood – Anna Cull and Taylor Mayes scored 2 each, with Taylor Mayes the player of the match. Third in the table now behind two very strong teams, so a great performance so far.
Under 12s – also played Beechwood and won 4 – 0, though this game was at Fortress Overchurch. Shannon Navarro and Emma Johnson bagged two each, with Emma Johnson the player of the match.
Under 14s – lost at home to Manor 9 – 1. Georgia McGeough scored the only Upton goal, whilst Anna Croft was player of the match before she has a break for a few weeks for a minor operation – we wish her a speedy recovery!
Under 14 Rangers – no game this week
Under 16s – holiday, late withdrawal and injury meant only 5 could play at the Delph against Wallasey Wanderers Red. In the circumstances, losing 9 – 3 was a creditable score and if at full strength, we should be hopeful in the return fixture.  Abbie Bateman scored all three ,and Jess Tayor was player of the match

The Under 11’s got back to winning ways with a 7-2 victory over Wallasey Wanderers with John Adediran netting a hat trick and taking the Man of Match award, there were further goals from Ewan Nolan 2, Rhys Jones & Michael Pearsall.

The Under 12’s put in a fantastic performance against the league leaders with only 10 men to only lose 4-6 to Wirral Rangers. Alex Highton scored 2 and Jonathan Turk scored 2 and was Man of the Match in a great team effort.

The Under 13’s came up against the formidable Rakers and put in a great showing deserving much more than the 1-5 scoreline suggests with Joe Abraham grabbing the goal and Tyler Smith the Man of Match.

The Under 14’s continued their fine form with a 12-0 thrashing of Birkenhead Youth with goals from Alex Pitt 3 who was also Man of Match, Joe Murray 3, Callum Mernock 2, Sam Kydd 2, Christopher Turk & Scott Billington.

The Under 15s match report is provided by manager Simon Walker. The team took to the Valley Road pitch warned not to be complacent against an improving Ashville team and when Ashville scored in the first minute it was clear that the lads hadn’t taken the warning seriously enough. However the team showed good resilience to equalise through Owens and and started to dominate but a hopeful long ball from Ashville again caught the Upton defence out and the hosts re-took the lead. But Upton then re-grouped and after getting another equaliser went on to totally dominate the match running out 8-2 winners. The team play, team structure and quality of football was generally excellent throughout and although several open nets were missed the result was a fair reflection of the game. Walker bagged another hat-trick, Lamb (Captain) scored on his return from injury, Hoijord Beard continued his goal scoring form and a wonder shot (hopeful punt) from Ives was bundled into the net by the keeper. Man of the match was Hoijord Beard.
The Youth team continued their improved run of form as they went to top of the table New Brighton and pulled off a fantastic 2-1 win which moves them up a couple of places in the league.
The Open Age got back to winning ways with a 2-1 win over Mackenzies.
