Wallasey and District Sunday Football League round-up, 19 November 2023

Once more, the fixture schedule was reduced because referees deemed waterlogged grounds unfit for play, demonstrating a duty of care to all involved.

The only fixture played in the MES Ltd First Division saw PLCCFC miss the chance to go into second place when losing to the only goal against West Kirby Athletic who had Phil Thomas as their match winner.

Only one of the First Division Cup first-round ties escaped the weather as Vineyard overcame AFC Shore Villa with a solid team effort to secure a 6- 0 success. Callum Morrison bagged a hat-trick and Ben Hawitt, Ryan Slater, and Joel Campbell all netted singles to ease into round two.

An eight-goal thriller came in the Second Division Cup first round, with New Brighton Town profiting from a 5-3 victory over Park Royal, thanks to James Carlin netting twice, and singles from Jack Richards, Dylan Palmer, and Ewan Sait. Claiming the replies for Royal were Joe Coulbrook with a brace and Grant Reay with a solo in a battling performance.

Action from the Moreton Alarms Supplies Second Division resulted in leaders Shore Villa overpowering below-strength club counterparts Shore Villa Athletic and retaining their 100% record as they ran riot in a 10-0 success.

Two trebles came from Ben Windle and Lloyd Kearney and singles were netted by James Caul, Sam Range, Connor Hodson, and Matthew McCulloch in a good team effort.
