Wallasey and District Sunday Football League round-up, 12 November 2023

Last week, torrential rain caused Wirral Council to rightly close all grass pitches for the weekend.

Only one fixture took place, being in the MES Ltd First Division and saw PLCCFC climb into third place following their narrow 2-1 success over Trident on the 4G pitch at Pensby High School on a wet and windy morning.

This close encounter saw Danny Hardman and Matty Beaman score for PLCCFC and bagging the lone response was Jake Williams in a difficult game.

This week, yet again, bad weather caused the loss of fixtures. Of those that took place, an immaculate two-minute silence was conducted by all teams in respect of Remembrance Sunday before kick-off.

Cheshire Sunday Cup action saw a great game between Vineyard and Queens Bredbury that resulted in a superb 3-2 victory for Vineyard. There was little between the two teams in the first half. which was separated by a penalty for Queens just after 30 minutes. Vineyard stayed well in contention as the second half saw the home team create more chances and were rewarded with goals from Nathan Miller and Callum Morrison. An own goal saw them through to the next round due to a good team effort.

One O’Clock Gun increased their lead at the top of the MES Ltd First Division thanks to a 6-2 defeat of AFC Shore Villa, who had Will Dixon and Nathan Mewis as their marksmen.

Wallasey Wanderers secured a victory in an eight-goal fixture against PLCCFC as they ran out 5-3 winners due to Matty Madden and Declan Netherton each bagging a brace, and Morgan Catherton adding a single in an end-to-end encounter that places Wanderers in the top five.

Only one fixture took place in the Moreton Alarms Supplies Second Division as goals from Jack Whitby (2), Andrew Grice, Rees McNulty, and Roan Huggins earned Bromborough Athletic a 5-0 success over under-strength Shore Villa Athletic as they moved into fifth place.
