Game of the day came from the CWFL Olympic Trophies Championship, as league leaders FC Farndon welcomed second-placed Newton Athletic Reserves to the Farndon Community Centre.
Farndon took a deserved lead via a 37th-minute penalty from the league’s top scorer. Lee Parry. Early in the second half, Newton hit back when Danny Mongan also netted from the spot. Another Newton penalty five minutes later – this time taken by Dan Christian – was brilliantly saved by Zac Bushell in the Farndon goal.
The resulting corner from Danny Mongan went straight into the net, to give Newton the lead. Mongan then dispatched his second penalty to seal a 13-minute hat-trick and Farndon’s unbeaten record was beginning to look under serious threat.
Lee Parry’s smart turn and finish gave Farndon hope, and in the last-minute Captain, Ben Parry, headed home a dramatic equalizer to bring the game level at 3-3. From the resulting restart, Newton almost stole it in when Marc Moorfield shot straight from the kick off only to see the post come to Farndon’s rescue!
Trey Lattie’s fine goalscoring form continued for Chester Nomads as he netted his third hat-trick of the league campaign. Shean Shrigley, James Lloyd, and James Pemberton also netted to give Nomads a 6-0 victory over Cestrian Alex.
Cameron Dewhurst scored all five Upton JFC goals as they ran out 5-0 winners against Orange Athletic in a result which sees Upton leapfrog Newton into second.
