Girls

Under 10s – unfortunately, only 6 players were available for the first match of the season, but the team got off to a fantastic start with a 4 – 0 win away to Oxton Girls. Scorers were Mia Donaldson, Tessie Nickson, Amelia Smith and Libby Gahan, who was also player of the match

Under 12s –  only 4 players were registered and available for the kick off so we had to concede the game to Manor

Under 14s – a new season started with a tough fixture against Manor Jets. Manor led the game 2 – 0 and 4 – 2 before Anna Pippard put Upton ahead for the first time with minutes to go. Unfortunately, the girls could not hold on until the final whistle, and Manor equalised right at the end. The result was fair to the efforts of both teams and it was a good start for Upton with what is, effectively, a team made up from members of three teams last year. Scorers for Upton were Anna Pippard (2), Charlotte Carroll, Olivia Radford and Katie Murray, whilst Charlotte McNay was player of the match.

Under 16s – the players had last played in the same team three years ago, so it was pleasing to see them start to gel quickly in a 9 – 0 win over Greenleas. The visitors worked hard but Upton kept chances to a minimum whilst creating plenty of good chances at the other end. Scorers were Leah McNay (4), Jodie Williams (2), Hannah Smith, Poppy Buckley and Aira Temporal, who was also player of the match

The Under 11’s – had their first game in the new 9 v 9 format and despite small numbers and tired legs pulled off a great 5-2 win against Delta Colts. Connor Jones led the way with a hat trick and further goals from Jack Torpey and Man of Match Joe Farrell sealed the win.

The Under 15’s– LISCARD PANTHERS  1 – 12 UPTONFC.

This was our first game of the season in this new league and we got off to a great start winning the game 12-1, the game was quite even for the first 15 minutes as both teams eager to please tried to stamp their authority on the game, however after several misses, Upton did score through Ryan Fleming, a blistering shot from 20 yards out, this gave us confidence and Adam Sunners scored shortly after, Liscard by now were running out of steam and Alex Ward added to their woes when he picked up from a poor back pass and scored our third goal, the game was effectively over by now and I made several substitutions to try and give everyone a good proportion of the game, half time loomed and it remained at 3.0

Second started as the first finished with Upton dominating play, Jordan Taylor, scored his first of three for the afternoon, as did Christian Rule, shortly after both lads doubled their scores to make it 7.0, again players where substituted quite liberally to give everyone a good run about, Tyler waded in with a typical Tyler Smith effort, beating about six men before prodding the ball home and Jack Rhodes got his first of the campaign with a good well taken effort, Liscard were down and out by now and Liam Siddorn, pushing forward from defence got the 10th of the game and was delighted with his effort, the only thing left was who was going to take home the match ball between Christian and Jordan for their hat tricks, and the chance fell to Jordan when after Joe Abraham was up ended in the box grabbed the ball and easily put away the penalty to make it 11-0 and his hat trick, Christian was not to be un done as before the end he too grabbed his hat trick to round off a  great performance, the only disappointing thing was conceded in the final minute, whilst the guy was so far offside he was chatting to our keeper, Liscard scored their solitary effort, but who could deny them a goal.

This was a great performance by the lads and has set the standard for the season, I hope the games are a little harder as complacency will set in and when the tougher games come along, we need to be alert, but after some of the beatings we took last season it was good to give one out, well done lads.
