Crosby Stuart U11s 7Hesketh Colts U11s 0
A TOTALLY dominant performance showed Crosby how much they have improved as a team.
Goals came from McDermott (2), Kennedy (2), Morrissey, O’Hanlon and Campbell. Crosby also spurned a hatful of chances while in addition there was a magnificent penalty save by Hesketh’s keeper.
Crosby have really started to show what a good side they could become with some great performances since the turn of the year.

THE boys were unlucky to be on the losing side after dominating the game for large spells.
Two errors proved costly in the end but the boys played some great football.
Marshalls took the lead, only for their keeper to put through his own goal following a Tom Moore corner.
When they went behind for the second time, the Crosby boys kept plugging away and were unlucky not to equalise. Man-of-the-match went to Adam Cahill.

ERRORS across the park led to Crosby’s exit from the prestigious County Cup competition at the semi-final stage.
After conceding four goals in the first half, Crosby displayed some character to put Maghull on the back foot for much of the second period but only Verdell Nza could convert the Crosby possession into a goal.
Goalkeeper Travis Wilson pulled off some outstanding saves to keep the score respectable but a trip to the final was not to be.

THE early start showed with Crosby as even though they had large amounts of possession in the opening half, their end product was missing and they looked tired and sluggish.
This worked to Wigan’s advantage as they had a very lively number 10 whose clinical finishing was the only difference in the first half.
Unfortunately Crosby Stuart found themselves 4-0 down at the interval.
After a few tactical changes and a few words at half-time Crosby Stuart got out of second gear and continued to dominate possession creating several excellent opportunities which the Wigan goalkeeper made several fine saves to deny them.
After so much pressure and corner after corner Crosby Stuart were denied two blatant penalties which would have been fine reward for their hard work and character shown.
However as a result of those decisions Wigan broke away with a route one ball which their number 10 was again on hand to score.
Up until that point he had been missing in the second half due to the tactical changes.
Crosby Stuart still pressed forward and their persistence paid off and after some neat football Felicity Stafford was on hand to neatly convert past the Wigan keeper.
The lady-of-the-match was given to Melissa, the Crosby Stuart goalkeeper, whose performance in the first half was exceptional.

THE under-7s again gave their all and the signs are good.
Sophie Sands and Seamus Matthews gave outstanding performances in defence.

IF the under-8s could transfer their training displays into matchday they would be fine.
However they are playing with no self-belief.
