Eagle 1-2 Seneley & Garswood C

Garswood go into this fixture with lots of confidence from last weeks performance.

As usual a very close contest between these two sides. Nothing much in it for the first 20 mins, both sides playing well and creating chances, then a slip at the back lets Eagles centre forward in as he shoots from outside the box. He miskicks the ball to a player in an offside position, who slots the ball past Callum for the second week in a row. Very frustratingly the goal stands 1-0 to Eagle. The game continues very tight to half time.

Garswood get 2nd half under way, determined to write the bad decision off and really get stuck in. Both teams continue to play well when at 45 mins Ethan Miller picks up the ball ten yards outside the box. He takes on the defender and beats him into the box and slots the ball past the keeper. A superb individual goal 1-1.

Eagle come back strong. Callum Eden makes some good saves to keep it level. Also Declan Livesley and Charlie Eatock make brilliant tackles inside the box to keep Eagle out. Garswood ride their luck as Eagle strike the crossbar on 55 mins. The match is evenly balanced, then Garswood begin to pressure the Eagle goal. First with a good chance for Danny Fitzpatrick from a pass from Ethan Miller, then a shot from Connor Locklin just over the bar. Garswood continue to press winning a corner.

Ethan Miller catches Eagle asleep at the back, passes the ball short to Connor who takes a touch and puts in a great cross straight onto Wesley Spencer’s head, on the penalty spot. A brilliant brave header from Wesley. 2-1 on 62 mins.

The last 8 minutes are end to end as Eagle try to get one back. A very exciting game with the right final result. Excellent efforts from all the team especially Wesley Spencer, Keiran Lackey, and Callum Eden in goal, who was Man of the Match. Well Done lads, you deserved it!!!!

Garswood 2-2 Appleton B

Game started at a fast pace on a wet pitch and still raining. Garswood have a good first 15 mins going close twice and eventually Wesley Spencer gets the opening goal on 20 mins, from a good team build up and a final pass into the box by Ethan Miller.

Appleton respond going close from kick off, but Garswood stay focused. End to end for 10 mins. Apleton score on 30 mins 1 -1. Both keepers make good saves to keep it 1-1 ar half time.

Second half continues a very close contest, then on 45 mins Appleton score a clear offside goal. Very disappointing for Garswood who were the best team upto this point. They get on with it and score a goal which clearly crosses the line but the ref. was too far away to be sure and doesnt give it. Another very disappointing decision.

Garswood continue to press eventually scoring on 60 mins. Wesley Spencer getting his second from a great free kick into the box from Connor Locklin.

Garswood continue to play well. Chances at both ends on 65 mins Ethan Miller shoots and the ball gets stuck in the mud 2 feet off the goal line. Any other day it would have been a goal.

Both Goalkeepers continue to play well making very good saves.

Great game, very close. Garswood deserved the win but wasnt to be be.

All the team were excellent. Well Done Everyone!

Man of the match – Craig Gough.

Strong performances by Kieran Lackey in centre midfield and Charlie Eatock at centre back. Also Wesley Spencer(C) was excellent up front.

Well Done to Callum Eden in goal, who kept us in it twice in the first Half.

Garswood 3-0 Rainhill B

Rainhill Utd were the visitors as Seneley & Garswood Juniors looked to claim their 4th consecutive straight league win.

Both teams started brightly, but it was Garswood who opened the scoring in the 7th minute as Cameron Davies chased a through ball from Ryan Eden and rounded the keeper to slot into an empty net. Cameron was then brought down in the box in the 29th minute, and picked himself up to fire his spot kick into the top corner giving the keeper no chance, and sending the home side into the interval 2-0 up.

Cameron Davies then capped another terrific display with a well taken 3rd goal in the 37th minute, after fine work from James Haswell. Garswood & Rainhill Utd both had chances to add to their tally, but excellent work from both keepers ensured the game finished 3-0 to the home side.

Garswood head to their top of the table clash with Orford next week in fine form. Man of the Match – Mattias Lokuta (midfield dynamo).
