Litherland Blue JFC U7s 3 Liverpool North 4

A RETURN to proper competition saw Litherland Blue JFC take part in a great game against Liverpool North.

The Blues started off on fire, with Dan Spear scoring his 19th goal of the season after just 15 seconds, following some great work by Shea Lacey and Jack Bretherton.

Liverpool North were soon finding their feet though, but Elliot Gallagher in goal was in fine form producing some great stops and saves which earned him the player-of-the-match award.

George Masterson and Ellie Campbell were having good games in defence with Ellie performing some great play under pressure and Leon Cummings was keeping Liverpool North’s defence busy on the left wing.

Despite his heroics, Elliot was soon beaten by some well worked goals by Liverpool North though, and they went in 2-1 ahead at half-time.

It was much of the same in the second-half, with the mini Blues trying to hit Liverpool North on the break.

After Liverpool North went 3-1 up, Shea drilled in a great shot from the edge of the box after a big clearance from Callum Ardin at the back, making it 3-2.

Just as Litherland Blue were getting back into the game, Liverpool North pulled ahead again with a good free-kick into the top corner.

The Blues were soon back in the game and after some good defending from Tommy Campbell, new boy Ben was brought down for a free-kick, which Jack powered in from distance.

Despite a great comeback, the Blues just ran out of steam and Liverpool North ran out worthy winners, 4-3.

It was a really good cup-tie with both teams playing well.
