The Under 10’s –  beat Shafts 2-1 with  goals from Alfie Bosworth & Luke Pitt with Tom Carrington Man of Match.




Under 10s – only six players available against a strong New Ferry team, but the girls managed to take a 1- 0 lead into half time. Understandably, they tired a bit in the second half and ended up losing 3 – 1, but it was a great effort from all concerned. Tessie Nickson scored our goal, and Amelia Smith was player of the match
Under 12s – are having a difficult season, with girls not turning up who played last year, and new faces coming to the league for the first time. The seven available put everything in against Waverton, but ended up losing 5 – 1. Two more new players are due to join and hopefully that will give players a chance to get a breather during the games. Sophie Wilson scored the Upton goal and Ena Kililiku was player of the match.
Under 14s –  did not play because it was a closed week for the opposition
Under 16s – played top of the table Wirral Hawks for the first time this season. On the large pitch and playing uphill first half, Upton defended well to keep it to 2 – 0 to the home team at half time. However, for the first 15 minutes of the second half (playing downhill) we didn’t play as we can, and Hawks scored twice again, before Upton clicked into gear at last and started to play a lot better, reducing the deficit to 4 – 2 by the end. Scorers were Aira Temporal and Hannah Smith, and Anna Croft, outstanding at the back with Molly Johns, deservedly got player of the match.



The Under 11’s – kept up their unbeaten start with a 4-0 win against W Wanderers thanks to goals from Man of Match Reece Gannon, Reece Pirie, Connor Jones & David Thomas


The Under 12’s – lost 5-3 to Heygarth with a goal from Luke Malone and 2 from Brendan Doherty with Jamie Kavanagh Man of Match


The Under 13’s – No Game


The Under 14’s – No Game


The Under 15’s –   

I was away for this game so I cannot really comment on how the game went, as the game progressed both Dave and Denise were telephoning me how the lads were doing, due to a mistake by myself as I thought it was a 2.30 ko the lads turned up atv 2 pm ready to warm up but were asked to kick off immediately, this may well of been the reason for us going 1-0 down shortly into the game, however Christian equalised to make it 1-1, again I believe with some slack defending we found ourselves 2-1 down and I waited hopefully for a quick call back, this came shortly before the break when Alex Ward rattled home the equaliser and this is how it remained until half time.


Second half started I believe very well for us and we commanded the game throughout, Ryan Williams put us ahead with a solo effort that even Lionel Messi would have been proud of and Alex Ward got his second goal of the game, we were dominating proceedings at this stage and Corey Taylor who was our man of the match scored his first of a double for the afternoon, shortly after Joe Abrahams scored his typical 20 yard belter for the goal of the game and just before the end Corey finished proceedings to make it 7-2.


As mentioned earlier although we won this game comfortably some slack mistakes in the first half could of cost us dearly and we must stop making such mistakes, on another day this may well of come to haunt us. But credit to all the lads today, bit like Everton on the day had the bottle and determination to come back from an early set back.


We have by far our toughest task of the season this Sunday when we entertain our old foes Glenavon, we know there abilities and whoever wins this tussle will put them in good stead to who ever wins the title.. lets hope its us, so come we can do it.
