The Under 7’s & Under 8’s had no game

The Under 9 lads 100% record continued for the season, and this time it was in their first ever cup game. Playing the same side they played last week in the league, the lads won by exactly the same score as last week. However, the pattern of the game was different, with the lads coming from behind to gain a good victory. The game started brightly with both sides playing some good passing football. We had a couple of good chances in the first few minutes, but couldn’t quite find the net. West Kirby were pushing the ball round well and causing us problems, and in fact went into the lead with a good move, aided by some indecision in our area. However, the lads responded well straight from the kick off and pushed forward. It wasn’t long before we levelled with a good run and finish by Alex. Some sturdy defending from Callum and Philip kept West KIrby at bay, and a good move down the right involving Tom and Callum produced a good ball in for Alex to get his second and take us into the lead, which we kept hold of till the break. The second half continued in the same vein with chances for both sides, and Alfie had to produce a couple of good saves to preserve the lead. With the lads forcing a number of corners it wasn’t long before the third goal came, courtesay of Tom’s boot after some good play in the West Kirby box. The game then went from end to end with chances for both sides, but some good breaking down of the opposition by Andrew and Chris kept the lead in tact. Then as the game was coming to the end a mistake at the back let West Kirby in to peg the lads back to 3 -2, and a tense last couple of minutes were on the cards. However, the lads done well to hang on and ensure they will play in the next round

The Under 10’s had a break from the league this week and got their first win of the season against Wallasey Wanderers in the KO Cup. Owen Burns, Reece Gannon, Connor Jones, Joseph Farrell and Man of Match Jack Torpey scored in a 5-1 win.


Under 10s were up against another Manor team this week – Manor Lightning. The girls put in a great effort but lost out 5 – 0, with Millie Eastham getting player of the match
Under 12s had a home win without playing as Waverton were unable to field a team
Under 12 Rangers came up against a physical Wirral Rangers team, and lost out 7 – 1. Anna Pippard scored the Rangers’ goal, and Ellen McGowan was player of the match.
Under 14s played a depleted Wallasey Wanderers, who could only bring 5 players to the game. Initially dropping to 6 v 5, Upton then played 5 v 5 for three quarters of the game. The Wallasey players were a great credit to their club, working hard throughout the game and creating several chances against an older and more experienced Upton team. We wish Rob and his team well for the rest of the season. It was also pleasing to see Upton playing some good passing football, and scoring several well worked goals. Jodie Williams was player of the match and scored 5; Leah McNay 3; Poppy Buckley, Brittany White and Rebecca Pritchard-Howarth 1 each.
Under 16s  played out another draw, this time 3 – 3 with Irby. A fantastic game between two well matched teams, both playing good football. Abbie Bateman, Louise o’Brien and Alisha McGraa scored, and Aira Temporal was player of the match
