A reduced programme due to the torrential rain causing postponements, referees being withdrawn due to cup fixtures, and teams failing to provide results is the reason for the short report.
Mixed fortunes befell the teams in the Wirral District FA Amateur Cup 1st round as Trident were eliminated 4-3 in a penalty shoot-out after drawing 0-0 with AFC Shore Villa.
West Kirby Athletic had their game versus Poulton Vics S&S postponed due to a waterlogged pitch. There were no problems for Oldershaw FC, who eased home 8-2 against AFC Shaftesbury as Dale Crawford rifled home a hat-trick, Caston Ball-Lalemi netted a double, with Joe Shelmerdine and Liam Stephens scoring singles. An own goal completed the victory.

No luck for our two teams in the Wirral DFA Premier Cup 1st round as James Murray’s brace was not enough for PLCCFC as they were stumped 4-2 by Corsair PV FC. Queens Park defeated Vineyard with a late flurry of goals to ease home 7-0.
Two games were postponed in the Moreton Alarms Supplies Second Division due to no referees being available to cover the fixtures.
Bromborough Athletic enjoyed yet another success when beating Ellesmere Port Red Lions in a nine-goal thriller 6-3. On target for Athletic were Jamie McNulty, Nick Ashby, Lee McNulty, and Roan Huggins who claimed a hat-trick. The responses came from Matty Roberts and a brace from Eric Gilmour in a great contest.
There are plenty of cup fixtures again next week and all teams are reminded that they must phone in the results of all fixtures, whether home or away.
