Busy week for expanding Formby Community FC

8th October 2019

FCFC was only formed in March and membership is still growing. The club now has 317 members playing regular grass roots football.

The astonishing rise in interest seems to be the passion that members, family and coaching staff are putting in. Tina Hamilton from FCFC said,Wewould like to say a big thank you all parents, players, coaches and supporters of the club for their help and enthusiasm.

The club, which has today passed its FA Charter Standard Health check, will continue to welcome all players from all abilities.

It’s been a busy week for FCFC with a girl’s primary school tournament attracting nearly 200 players at the beginning of the week followed by a visit from Jurgen Klopp on Sunday.

Match highlights

FCFC Athletico under 12 girls made a good start but had to be on guard as Churchtown were looking threatening on the counter. Katy Nicholson took off the pressure scoring the first. Both Kiera O’Rourke and Mae Phillips whipped in testing corners that were deflected in off defenders as own goals. Mae and Katy scored further goals with Faye Johnson also getting on the score sheet. New signing Eve Hannahway had an excellent debut in goal.Athletico won the game 6-1.

FCFC Formby Real beat Rainford Rangers 13 by two goals to win in the Hightown JFL. Formby went down a goal early on but then peppered the Rainford goal without target. Evie Law battled well and scored to level. A superbly taken header from Kaya Jones sealed three points for Real in a physical encounter. Manager Kevin Garforth said ‘The woodwork and some good goalkeeping from Rainford kept the score down.’ Managers player of the match was Sienna Fallows.

FCFC Oranges U8’s Boys played Ormskirk whites in a tough game. Formby had a good first half but lack of substitutes began to show as Ormskirk took the victory. The proud manager said: “bundles of energy from our depleted team saw an excellent effort in the first half, trailing by a single goal by the break. Once again, Ethan Millhouse was absolutely outstanding in goal, literally making 5 top drawer saves to keep it at 0-1. With no subs available, and the other side making the most of all 4 subs they had, the difference soon told.

FCFC U8 Black beat Greenlooms this recordingtheir first victory in Gameweek 1 of the newly formed Division 1. A hat trick from Dillon Crosby and a brace from Zak saw off a spirited opposition. 

Manager Andrew Crosby said: “Excellent play all round today, putting pressure on the opposition and showing more composure with the ball at our feet. The game could easily have gone to double figures.”
