Well done and thanks to everyone involved in our ESFA U14 Inter County Trophy last 16 exit to Lancashire on Friday 13th January. Our opponents were simply more clinical in front of goal but other than the finishing there was little to choose between the two sides in a pulsating game.

We now wish Lancashire luck for their next round match and reflect on what might have been.

There was certainly an excellent team spirit in our squad and the games against Oldham Athletic F.C. and Staffordshire hinted at special things ahead. Lancashire had other ideas though and they deserved to progress on the night.

County football will be back on the agenda for this age group at U16 level in two years time but for now there are no more competitive fixtures planned for the 2016/17 season.

Best wishes

Mr Jackson
