Under 8’s – No Details

Upton Under 9’s entertained a lively Glenavon team at Leasowe today on what was a fine day to play football. Both ‘keepers were not needed to be called into action very much during the first half as all of the hard work from both teams was being undone by a solid defensive display from both teams and Upton’s Owen Burns, Reece Pirie and Joshua Lynch made sure that Zach Hemsworth was well protected. Reece Gannon was unlucky on a few occasions, coming close after a tremendous run and cross from the left by Lewis Heath. Both teams were intent on playing good, passing football and a really entertaining first half didn’t deserve the 0-0 scoreline that was served up. Substitutions were made at half-time and Mark Lewis replaced the tireless Reece Gannon like for like up front. Some good play from Connor Jones saw Mark Lewis released through the middle. Connor passed the ball through and Mark flicked the ball with the outside of his left foot into the air, then , what can only be described as a scissor kick volley, the ball flew hard and fast into the top right hand corner of the net. An unbelievable goal that turned the match. Glenavon’s heads dropped a little after that and, with ten minutes left, a shot from Jack Torpie was parried by the Glenavon ‘keeper. Mark Lewis used his size and strength and “resisted” the ‘keepers challenge, turned and buried the ball in the back of the net. 2-0 and Upton were out of sight. The third goal was another great piece of passing football. Mark out to Jack who stormed down the right, cut inside and with pace hit a beautiful effort that was only pushed away into the path of a grateful Lewis Heath. The little guy had ran his heart out all day and had followed the play right into the box and his reward came for that. 3-0. This display was encouraging in many ways as Glenavon team were well organised, quick and dangerous on the break. The patience shown from Upton is really proving to be the catalyst for our results. We are soaking up the pressure and then hitting back with a pacy, counterattacking style that is serving us well.

Under 10’s – No Details


Under 10s had another close game against Irby, and seemed destined for a draw despite the lion’s share of the game until Anna Cull scored the winner for a 2 – 1 victory with a minute to go.  Ellen McGowan scored the other goal and Taylor Mayes was awarded yet another player of the match award
Under 12s also played Irby, and again had by far the better of the game. Another trademark quality finish from Emma Johnson opened the scoring, but Irby managed an equaliser and, despite every effort of the Upton team, they couldn’t find a winner.  Emma Johnson was player of the match.
Under 14s took the bare 7 players to the large pitch at the Delph, but everyone worked hard for the full hour to secure what was eventually a relatively comfortable 8 – 5 win. Great performances all around the pitch with captain Aira Temporal scoring 4 (including a shot into the top corner from just inside the opposition half), Georgia McGeough 2, Ellen Harding and Emily Sullivan one each. Hannah Smith nearly added a superb 9th goal with a free kick that just cleared the bar from over 25 yards. Aira Temporal was player of the match.
Under 14 Rangers took on the older Ridgewood Rangers, and didn’t get out of the blocks until the second half, by which time they were 3 – 1 down. However, they finished with the same level of performance that saw them nearly peg back Manor the week before to overturn the deficit and run out 5 – 3 winners.  Jodie Williams scored 2, Isabel Nolan, Leah McNay and Poppy Buckley one each.  Brittany White was player of the match.
Under 16s faced Greenleas in a return fixture, having won the first game 6 – 5.  Recent results, including a draw with top of the table Wallasey Wanderers White, showed that Greenleas had improved on early season form and so it proved here, as they ran out 6 – 2 winners.  Abbie Bateman scored both our goals, and Vicky Robinson was player of the match for Upton.


The Under 11’s had a comfortable 5-1 win against Wirral Rangers with 2 goals from Dominic Lund & Michael Pearsall and 1 from Ewan Nolan with John Adediran named Man of Match.

The Under 12’s were beaten 4-1 by Wirral Scorpions in yet another game they didnt get what they deserved from it. Guy Stratton scored the goal with Mike Cooper getting the Man of Match.

The Under 13’s were very unlucky to lose 4-3 to Wallasey Wanderers after a great performance from the lads. Goals from Ben Casey, Charlie Weir and Adam  Sunners who was also Man of the Match.

The Under 14’s produced a fantastic display to beat reigning champions Manor 6-2 and replace them at the top of the table with a hat trick from Scott Billington and 2 from Christopher Turk, Alex Pitt got the other goal with Ben Stobbart Man of The Match.

The Under 15s would like to express their sympathy and warm wishes for a speedy recovery to Tobi Lamb (Captain) following the broken leg he received in the match against Greenleas at Upton Park. The club would like to extend their thanks to the match referee, Bill Downey, and the parents of Greenleas football club who helped deal with injury.  At the time of the injury Upton were leading 2-0 with goals from Aspinall and Hoijord-Beard.”
