13s PROGRESS IN COUNTY CUP

Our 13s had a County Cup 2nd round tie against Leyland Albion this weekend and after the Leyland ground was declared unfit they agreed to switch the tie to Seafield Rd. A double strike by Noah Mawene gave us a 2-0 lead midway through the 1st half and it was 3-0 at the break thanks to a spectacular 30yd effort from Kaiden Pirrie. YMCA remained in control after the restart and increased their lead with a goal by Owen McConnell. Leyland notched a reply in the closing minutes and we ended up 4-1 winners. Our 16s should also been in County Cup action at Ramsbottom but their pitch was also deemed unplayable so the tie will now take place this Sunday 15th October at Seafield Rd. 11.00am kick off. In leagie action our 12s suffered a 3-1 home defeat to Clifton Wasps, Luke Doherty claiming our sole reply. Our 14s Girls lost their 3rd successive game, 6-1 at Euxton Girls, Ellie Jones netting our consolation

MIXED FORTUNES IN COUNTY CUPS

Our 12s Boys stormed into the 3rd round of the County Cup with a resounding 8-2 victory over Lancaster based Lune Valley at Seafield Rd on Sunday morning. We took an early lead but the visitors equalised just 3 mins later. However we got the upper hand and netted three more goals to take 1 4-1 lead into the interval. We scored another four times in the 2nd half with Lune Valley notching a late consolation. Ali Ruman impressed throughout for YMCA and he bagged himself a hat trick with Luke Doherty claiming a pair. In the afternoon at Seafield our 15s Boys had a County Cup tie against Padiham Saints but we were depleted with injuries and could only field 10 players. Despite this though Jacob Grice headed us in front inside the first 5 mins and we held on to this lead until half time. Padiham though netted twice within 10 mins of the restart then added another to go 3-1 in front. a 2nd goal from Grice reduced the arrears but our one-man disadvantage told in the latter stages and the visitors scored again to go home with a 4-2 victory. Also at Seafield that afternoon our 13s Boys had a league game against Thornton Reds and helped by a 5-goal haul by Noah Mawene and a hat trick from Owen McConnell we finished up 10-1 winners.
