Birkenhead Sunday Association Football League round-up, 12 November 2023

The weather again disrupted many fixtures in the Houlihan’s Birkenhead Sunday Association Football League.

Most of the postponements came in The Cheshire Sunday Cup and Wirral District FA Sunday Junior Cup.

One FA tie that did take place was in The FA National Sunday Cup, with Queens Park hosting Brow FC at Vauxhall FC. The Game finished all square at 2-2 after 90 minutes but Queens dipped out 7-6 on penalties. Jack Ireland and Fenton Cavanagh found the net for Queens Park.

After a run of three defeats in various competitions, Great Float Sports & Social got back to winning ways in The Premier Division after defeating Rock Ferry Social (Connor Doyle, Mike Williams) 3-2.

The battle for the Ryan ‘Gigsy’ Atherton Trophy has taken another early season twist. Any of the top seven clubs are capable of putting a good run of results together. It has never been so wide open for many seasons.

At the lower end of the table, Corsair FC registered their first win and first points of the season with a tremendous 4-0 result at Neston Nomads. Jedda Bayley hit a fine double with efforts from Leon Clarke and Kieran Jones.

Derby Jets recorded a vital win with Adam Larway notching a fine hat-trick in the Maxwell’s Barber Division One over Rig Move FC (John Britton) 4-1. Aaron Bunclarke was also the mark for the Jets.

Saughall FC marched to the top of the Martin Gallier Project Division Two after a comfortable 3-0 success at Oval FC. Owen Kelsey was on hand with a brace alongside a single from Stefan Dodd.

Lions FC made it five straight wins to claim second spot, after a narrow 2-1 away win at AFC Rangers. AFC Rangers’ goal was a rocket from centre back, Josh Keane, who notched up his first goal for the club. Kyle Wright and Tom Povall were the Lions’ marksmen,

The battle for supremacy in Division Three saw the top two face each other, with Oxton Celtic taking the honours 1-0 over Feeneys FC in a six-pointer game.

West Kirby United took full advantage of Feeneys’ reversal with a splendid 8-1 result over Upton United to sneak into second place.

Strikes from Alex Weston and Craig Evans for Glenavon Athletic nudged them away from the wrong end of the table in a key 2-0 win over Parkgate St Germain.

Higher Bebington Kelma earned maximum points in a mid-table tussle, 3-1, at Victoria Colts. On the scoresheet for Kelma were Adam Clarke with a pair and a Dylan Owen strike. Natas Asmonas replied for Victoria Colts.
