Houlihan’s Birkenhead Sunday Association Football League round-up, 22 May 2022

It was another busy day in The Houlihan’s Birkenhead Sunday Association Football League with the last two Trophies being won.

Woodchurch Hotel lifted The glorious Tony Houlihan Memorial Challenge Cup at Villa Park, Wallasey, with an afternoon kick off at the home of Ashville Football Club.

Corsair started off well but gave away a free kick just outside the penalty area on 15 minutes. Then, Jordan Deer stepped up and hit a wonderful 25-yard free kick into the top right-hand corner. Shay Holmes scored Woodchurch Hotel’s second around the 75-minute mark to firm up a cup double adding to the Wirral Premier Cup.

At the normal morning kick off time, it was the battle between the two current top sides in Division Two. second-placed KRCT took the lead via a Billy New effort, but Wellington FC hit back via Lewis Gouldson to go into the half time break at 1-1.

It was a keenly contested game, with a few flash points. It looked like the destiny of the championship would roll on to midweek, but Ben Travis hit the winner for Wellington FC to lift the title and record a impressive treble having already the WDFA Sunday Amateur Cup and The Tony Smith Memorial Cup.

KRCT still have two games to play and are now chasing the runner up spot as are New Ferry Rangers. KRCT have the upper hand having a two point advantage and a far superior goal difference.
