Lytham St Annes YMCA Girls U-16s 0-8 Bolton Wanderers

YMCA suffered a comprehensive defeat against a stronger and more technical Bolton Wanderers side at Seafield Rd last Sunday.  Although YMCA were coming into the game as league champions this proved a one sided contest in which unfortunately YMCA were no match.  The visitors soon racked up the goals with some fluid passing but YMCA tried their best to make it a contest and at times did put pressure on the visiting goal.  YMCA did have a goal ruled out when an Isabelle Kells shot was saved and Annabelle Jackson followed up to convert the loose ball however it was disallowed for offside by the linesman’s flag.  YMCA were thankful to goalkeeper Olivia Neal who was tremendous throughout and pulled off a number of excellent saves to deny the visitors further goals.  Lara Pilling was also notable in defence.
