Match report written by Captain Jack Gibson:
"On Friday 19th April, St. Bridget's football team consisting of; Jack Jenkins, Nat Whealan, Luke Auston, Adam Spence, Joe Byrne, Michael Aldag, James Malpas, Jack Safodi, Adam Birch, Luke Wilson, Joseph Inglis, MAx Hall, Jake Bickerastaff and Jack Gibson attended our first match of the season at Devonshire Road, West kirby.
Our Liverpool star scored a net busting volley to open the score. Two minutes later Jack Gibson did a stylish lay off into the path of Jake, who scored another great goal in the bottom hand corner.
A little while later Great Meols scored a spectacular corner. Just before Mr Neal (referee of the first half) blew the whistle, Jake scored a glancing header from an agile throw from Jack Gibson.
After half time Great Meols got another goal to amek the sore 3-2. This was becoming a close game! Then the beast that is jake buried another goal into the bottom corner - what a stunenr! Following this St. Bridgets won a penalty from Jack gibson and what do you know, he scored it!
At 5-2, I'm sure we thought it was over, but Great MEols didn't give up without a fight it was 5-3 and then 5-4. "Please blow the whistle ref!?" was shouted! Finally the referee blew the whistle! Elated, we walked off he pitch with happiness in the knowledge that we had won!"
Fantastic result guys well done!
