The Under 7’s continued their improved run of results with another victory 2-0 against AC Hoylake with both goals from Luke O Keefe with Paul New Man of Match.

The Under 8’s (No Details Yet)

The Under 9’s played against Glenavon Eagles in the Knockout Cup QF and put up a tremendous performance. The match was 1-1 at full time before Upton heartbreakingly lost 3-2 after extra time, hopefully they can go further in the Challenge Cup and put this result behind them. Matt Benson and Ben Mcallister got the goals with Ally Hughes Man of Match for a great performance in goal.

The Under 10’s report is supplied by Mark Lewis- A close fought game from start to finish, it could have been won by either side. Manor were quite physical  but a mature display by Upton, including a couple of brave, world class saves by ‘keeper Zach Hemsworth, contributed to another clean sheet and when the first real clear cut chance came six minutes from the end, Reece Gannon kept his head to shoot powerfully past the Manor ‘keeper into the top left hand corner of the net.
To conclude:- a mature performance full of patience kept Upton in contention for a top three place this evening. Teamwork was the essence of this victory


Under 10s – another close game against Heygarth, with Taylor Mayes scoring the only goal in the game, and also being awarded P-O-M
Under 12s – disappointingly had a walkover against Heygarth Juniors
Under 14s – had the handicap of only 6 players and a dodgy manager!! as they took on top of the league Wirral Hawks Ladies on the sloping Victoria Park pitch. They were 6-1 down at one point but rallied and drew the second half 4-4 playing up the slope a great effort from all the girls especially as a number of them were playing out of position. They eventually lost 10-7 with lots of positives coming from the game. Georgia Mcgough 5, Ellen Harding and Emily Sullivan who was also Player of Match got the goals.
Under 14 Rangers – another game where 7 a side with 11 a side goals distorted the score, ending in a 7 – 7 draw.  Ebbed and flowed, but the team ddi really well to come back from 7 – 5 down and equalised in the last mniute with their best move of the match.  Goals from Isabel Nolan (3), Leah McNay (2), Ceri Duff and Amy WebsterBrittany White was P-O-M
Under 16s – regular keeper away this week, so all the more impressive recording an 8 – 0 win at Waverton. Abbie Bateman, Katie Rutter and Louise O’Brien scored 2 each, Freya Mumford and Jess Davies one each, with Jess Davies the P-O-M


There were free weeks for the Under 11 & Under 12’s

The Under 13’s were in Cheshire Cup action and were leading 1-0 at half time in a tight game. They conceded a second half equaliser and after no more goals in normal and extra time the game was decided on penalties with Upton unfortunately losing 5-3. A great effort from the lads and hopefully they will bounce back in the league this week. Joe Abrahams got the goal with Liam Siddorn Man of Match.

The Under 14’s went goal crazy for the second week running beating Delta Colts 10-0 as their fine form carries on. Callum Mernock 2, Joe Murray 2, Scott Billington 2, Mitchell Duggan 2 and Man of Match and 1 each from Alex Pitt & Chrsitopher Turk saw the lads home.

The Under 15s continued their fine goalscoring form as they eased to a 6-0 win over Wallasey Wanderers in an ill-tempered game at Upton Park. With the visitors playing a high line Upton expoited the space on the wings to get in behind the defence with good wing play and found themselves 2 up in the first 5 minutes. The opening goal was a stunning drive from Owens, with Hoijord-Beard tapping in for a second. Walker then came off the bench to notch a quick-fire perfect hat-trick. With Upton 5 up at half-time the second half was a very low key affair as the home side created a number of good chances but converted only 1. As players were swapped around Wanderers came into the game more, and had the opportunity to get on the score sheet, with substitute keeper Lamb pulling off a stunning last minute save to keep the clean sheet. Another very good team performance, with Aspinall again influential and Evans showing his defensive capabilities, breaking up play well no matter what position he played. The team now have 3 tough matches ahead, with Glenavon next up

The Youth Team had a Cheshire Fa Youth Cup match against Rudheath Youth and continued their great recent form with a 2-1 win, both goals from Mike Mcgreary.

The Open Age had an entertaining 3-3 draw with The Lord Nelson.
