The Under 7’s  won their game and raised eyebrows after a convincing 5-0 win over New Brighton Saints. After 2 games trying to get used to the league and playing competitive football, the team pulled together and not only managed a win but kept a clean sheet thanks to some good saves and a solid defence. The win was managed due to 3 goals from Ashton Ventre, a cool freekick from hard working Matthew Sutton, who got his just deserve and a brilliant strike from Daniel Robinson. A big well done to Ryan Lester who was voted man of the match by the opposing team.

The Under 8’s had another good win 7-2 over Manor Coyotes with goals from Man of Match Joe Ryan, Cameron Parry 3, Aaron Clausen 2 & Luke O Keefe

The Under 9’s following last weeks winning start, made it 2 out of 2 with another convincing performance. However, both teams started slowly, and like last season it took a while for the lads to settle into their stride. In the first ten minutes a number of chances were created, but unfortunately none were converted. The final pass was not there, or the shots were scuffed rather than hit cleanly. However, the game was being controlled in midfield by Tom and Jack. At the back Philip, Callum and Andrew were defusing any attacks from Scorpions with relative ease. Then a couple of goals by Alex and Callum gave the lads the lead they definitely deserved. Both goals were the end product of some good passing moves, and were dispatched with some crisp finishing. Two soon became three with Jack finding the net a few minutes later. Scorpions then seemed to come to life, and it took a couple of great saves by Alfie in one on one situations to keep them out. The lads came quickly out of the blocks in the second half, and produced a number of chances with some good passing play. We didn’t have to wait long for the fourth goal, scored by Tom, after a great solo run. Then, like last week, the lads seemed to switch off for a few minutes. This resulted in Scorpions firing two quick goals. The lads came straight back and created more chances, and indeed had a goal denied after a shot came down off the bar and looked to be over the line. No more goals ensued, and the game ended in a 4 – 2 win for the lads, who continue their impressive start to the season

The Under 10’s got their first point of the season with a 2-2 draw with Greenleas Jets with goals from Reece Gannon and Man of Match Reece Pirie.


Under 10s – Having not had enough players to field a team two weeks ago, it was a welcome sight to have 10 players registered in time for this match against Oxton Girls. Against a physically bigger team, the girls put in a great effort but ended up losing 2 – 0. Rebecca Owen was player of the match, and with good numbers in the squad now, we are hopeful that the team can develop and progress from here
Under 12s and Under 12 Rangers – the first “derby” match of the season, and Rangers showed that they are quickly learning about playing together by putting up a great performance against their more experienced club mates. They carved out a number of chances and deservedly scored theirfirst goal of the season when Yasmin finshed well in the second half. However, the Under 12s ran out 4 – 1 winners in the end with goals from Jess Farrell (2), Elizabeth Sullivan and Charlotte Carroll, to maintain their 100% start to the season. Jess Farrell was player of the match for the Under 12s, Anna Pippard for the Under 12 Rangers. It was great to see both teams huddled together after the final whistle for a joint “U – P – T- O – N” chant, carrying on the team spirit from last season
Under 14s –  this was always going to be a tough fixture against Manor, who are firm favourites to win this division. However, the girls started off brilliantly, probably getting the better of the first half in a tight game, before a lapse of concentration after 26 minutes let in Manor for a well worked goal. A messy second goal early in the second half looked to give Manor clear daylight, but an own goal from an Isabel Nolan corner put Upton right back inthe game. Unfortunately, Manor immediatley struck back with an unfortunate deflection and they went on to win 5 – 1 as Upton tired. That said, the score did not truly reflect the game – Sarah was fantastic in goal and Becky and Ceri (with Brittany late on) worked tirelessly in defence. Jodie combined her skilfull attacking play with some brilliant covering runs to help out at the back, whilst Isabel hassled and worked hard up front to earn a well deserved player of the match award. Leah, Poppy and Katie also put in plenty of effort on the wings, but what we lacked overall was Manor’s willingness to attack the ball and the second ball. Hopefully we can get a result next time.
