The Under 15’s– PENINSULA STARS 1 – 7 UptonFC

This was our second game of the campaign against our old foes Peninsula Stars, who we know from experience always give a 100% and will always offer you a competitive game, again with a full squad of 15 players the game started, kicking downhill, we tended to over run things and it was stalemate for the first 10 minutes, we looked the stronger team but Peninsula had some tricky and tall lads so they posed a threat particularly at set pieces, however after 12 minutes Jack Rhodes like grease lightning lost his marker and drilled home his first of 3 for the afternoon, from a great cross from Christian, Joe Abraham scored a cracking header and we were cruising at 2.0, Jack just before the half made it 3.0 and effectively unless things went drastically wrong this was going to be our second win of the season, second half started and again as in the first game, with 4 subs I chopped and changed formations to try and give everyone a game, a few moans and groans were coming from the lads as they left the field, but I can understand they want to play the full game, early into the second half, Joe Abraham bundled in his second from a fine corner from Christian and he also got on the score sheet as Joe Hamm un selfishly passed to him when he could of scored himself, making it 5.0, Jack Rhodes rounded of a great performance with a well taken goal to give him his hat trick and the hard working Corey Taylor found the net with his first goal of the campaign a wonderful strike from 18 yards.

The game again finished withPeninsulascoring the last goal. Again blotting our copy book with a lapse in defence and the score finished 7-1

We are top of the league at this stage, scored 19 goals and conceded 2, what more can I say, if I was honest I would of liked the 2 games to have been a bit tougher to test us more, but as the old saying goes you can only beat what is in front of you, and I am extremely pleased with the lads performance so far, but hope as I have stated complacency does not creep into our game. We may have a tougher test this weekend at we take on Shore Villa, not that I believe they are any better than who we have played only because we may only have the bare 11, Joe Abraham and Jack Hopkins are going to watch Man united beat Liverpool, Joe Hamm is in Blackpool and Alex Enion is struggling with a troublesome hamstring, so given circumstances like this it is a good job we have a healthy squad of 15 good footballers


The Under 16’s – were drawing 2-2 with NBS before the referee abandoned the game due to problems with the NBS line, Upton goals were from Joe Murray & Man of Match Morgan Woods
