Chester and Wirral Football League round up, 3 December 2022

In the CWFL Tarvin Precision Vets Division 2, a superb 25-yard effort from Andy Owens gave Queens Park Vets the lead just before half time against a stubborn Farndon Vets side.

Early in the second half, John Mckay was hacked down in the box and Mike McGree made no mistake from the spot to double Queens’ advantage. Steve Abbot then sealed the win when he finished off a brilliant team goal to send Queens top.

A double from set-piece specialist Terry Cotgrave and a single from Victor Thurgill gave Birkenhead FC Vets the points against Lache Vets at St Mary’s. Cotgrave netted straight from a corner and then smashed in a brilliant free kick to put Birkenhead in control only for Lache to level before Victor Thurgill netted the winner for Birkenhead to seal brilliant 3-2 win.

Ellesmere Port Town Vets moved up to second as they thrashed Tarvin Vets 8-1, with Darren Holmes helping himself to a hat-trick with the other goals coming from Balzas Darnoi on his debut, Ben Billington, Gareth Upton, Joe Crane, and the outstanding Rob Blackwell.

On Friday night in the CWFL Precision Vets Division 1, a rare 0-0 draw on the Astro pitch meant Hooton Vets and Great Float Vets shared the points which now opens the door for Mersey Royal Vets to regain pole position who can take advantage if they win their games in hand.

Higher Bebington Kelma Vets went goal crazy hitting ten past West Kirby Vets, with Jonny Sumner and Steve Forster both hitting doubles and Simon Tierney, Scott Dowell, Chris Dunne, Marc Jones, John Walker, and Greg Bearsley all grabbing singles.

In the C & C Catering Challenge Cup, a goal from Ben Parry was not enough for Championship highflyers FC Farndon as Chester Nomads 2nds hit three goals to secure a suburb 3-1-win thanks to a double from Cam Clarke and a Marco Apollonio a single.

A brace from Dan Christian and a goal from Mason Haydon was not enough to take Newton Athletic Reserves through in normal time away at Cheshire League Division 1 side Malpas FC, who netted three goals of their own to take a thrilling game to penalties. Newton secured their passage through to the next round finally winning 8-7.

Helsby FC Reserves took an early lead against Cestrian Alex, only for Will Kitchin and Arnie Djedje to strike back for Cestrian. A late equalizer for Helsby meant the penalties would decide the game which saw Helsby win 5-4.

Lockdown FC put up a spirited performance but were narrowly defeated by higher league opposition Helsby 1st going down 1-0.

Sutton Rangers crashed to a heavy defeat against Newton Athletic first team as they lost 13-0 whilst Upton JFC Reserves also went out losing 3-1 to Blacon Youth 1st team
