SPECTACULAR GOALS GIVE 15s DERBY VICTORY

Therre was only one YMCA team in competitive action this weekend. Our Under 15s had a local derby against Lytham Juniors at Seafield and it was the visitors who opened the scoring in the 20th min. YMCA equalised with a great team goal 10 mins later when a flowing move involving several players was finished with Toby Grant finding the net with a fine shot. Soon after the restart Lytham regainded the lead but YMCA levelled again with a great individual effort by Harvey Shaw. He collected the ball on the left and with some clever footwork rounded three defenders before firing the ball superbly into the far top corner of the net. Five minutes later an even more spectacular goal put YMCA ahead for the first time. A clearance out of Lytham's defence was gathered on the half way line by Taylor Stock and spotting the keeper was off his line he lobbed the ball goalwards and it fell under the crossbar and into the net. This proved to be the winner and all the goals in this 3-2 victory were worthy of winning any game. A very sporting and entertaining contest which was a great credit to both teams.

Afer more heavy rain last week many pitches were left waterlogged for the Saturday morning games but non-competitive games went ahead at Seafield involving YMCA's Under 8s,8s, 10s and 11s
