SCORES ON THE DOORS!
Once again the u7 Greens came up against strong opposition in the form of Heath Rangers Celtic, and once again in strong windy conditions down at the Grange school! It didn’t take long for the boys to adapt to the conditions and they played some great football passing the ball round and within a few minutes Robbie burst through the middle of the defence collecting a wonderful through ball from Adam and showed great composure in front of goal by neatly tucking the ball away in the corner!
The Greens kept pushing for another and got their reward when Mackenzie’s corner caught the goal keeper off guard and he was unlucky not to stop the ball crossing the line – Mackenzie’s hot streak in front of goal continues for another week!
Heath Rangers tried to carve out some openings in the first half but there was a standout performance from Harrison who dropped back into defence and quickly cut out any danger.
In the second half Matthew came out of goal and made his presence felt, first he set up Adam from a corner routine straight of the training ground, hard and low across the box and Adam finishing it in style, then later on Matthew hit a powerful free kick from the edge of the box which went in off the post! The frame of the goal certainly got tested this game with Charlie also crashing one of the post but unfortunately for him the ball went out for a goal kick.
Man of the match went to Robbie for showing great tenacity throughout the game; let’s just hope his dad remembers to bring the trophy back this time!!
Yellows U8’s V Rainhill JFC.
After a long break from football due to poor weather conditions in the last few weeks, the Yellows finally got some football under their belts. Although the wind was a bit gusty at Halton Sports on Saturday, the lads listened to their coaches and kept the ball on the ground and played some great football. Any worries they were going to be a bit rusty against a good Rainhill side were blown apart with the lads flying out the blocks, clearly they had been chomping at the bit to play football! Young Oscar Burns must have used 4 weeks of energy in the first 20 minutes alone, he was like a machine and his best performance to date in a Linnets shirt! The lads were clearly taking aboard all they were told in training, and this was put to practice in the game. Well done boys!

Runcorn Linnets Arches under 9s vs Penlake under 9s 5/12/2015 -
Great game considering the harsh conditions. A terrible wind hindered Arches play in the first with them finding it hard to pick there pass's. Arches had the better chances in the first half which created a goal. Tom playing in midfield took one player on and took two players out the game with a great 30 yard pass through to James who took the pass and finished brilliantly. Second half began with better football from the Arches which resulted in Jack scoring a good goal assisted by Joseph who found him with great vision. It was the Josh's turn to score a perfect left footed free kick. More good play continued with Arches playing well defensively and going forward. Tom finished the game off with a superb goal from well outside the box. Well done Penlake for the continued effort and great tackles.
Man of the match sponsored by homes 4 U went to Ollie for some crucial saves throughout the game.
Runcorn Linnets Girls u13s Yellow - 3 v Egerton FC - 0
Well done girls for keeping the 100% record going with a 3-0 victory over a fiery, tenacious Egerton side.
The swirling, blustery conditions were not exactly conducive to great football, but it was still good to see the girls get back out there after very little match action in the past two months.
PoM Kenzie Weir opened the scoring with a superb instinctive goal from outside the box, followed by two excellent finishes from Caitlin Doran and Caitlin Albiston to finish the opposition off. But they did give us a stern test and our defence and keeper had to be on their toes throughout.
So, back to the top of the table with two games in hand and just three to play. You've been excellent this season girls - keep it up!
Roll on next weekend for more of the same.
