Uptons Ability counts season got off to a great start as they took part in there first tournament of the season in Nov 2013

On Saturday morning we travelled to Bebington High School to take part in a competition against teams from Tranmere Rovers,and Heygarth United, the opposition for the day insured that Upton had a real challange on there hands.

As the morning got under way Upton not only proved they were up to the challange, but the combination of some brilliant defending, fantastic football, and lethall finishing meant Upton came out on top in the three games they played, running away 5-1, 4-0, and another 4-0 in the final game.

It was great to see the players enjoying there football so much,and a pleasure for coaches and parants to watch the team play such good football.

Well Done to all involved









Thanks to all the parants for there brilliant support

 The next Tournament in January saw another fantastic effort

Last Saturday the Upton Ability counts team travelled to Bebbington to take part in the ability counts league fixtures.

The day started with Upton taking on Liverpool F.C. a tremendous performance saw Upton  run out 3-1 winners.

In our second fixture we faced Tranmere rovers, with both teams doing all they could to win  in a brilliant game.

We entered the last minute of the match with the score at 2-2 when Tranmere scored a wonder goal with a brilliant

volley from the edge of the box, it was certainly worthy of winning any  game.

Our last fixture saw us take on Liverpool again, I was concerned that the defeat against Tranmere may affect the teams 

confidence, but the Upton teams response was absolutely fantastic as they won the game comfortably 6-0.

Once again a great day was had by all the teams involved.

We now look forward to the March fixtures were hopefully Upton can continue to play the great football they have played all season
