After our 2-1 victory at home to Gillibrand we have secured the league title with 3 games to spare, hopefully we can maintain our 100% record for the 3 remaining games. Well done lads!

We had a free saturday so arranged a friendly against Charnock Richard at their ground - Many thanks to CR for sorting this out!

Euxton lined up with Adam in goal, Jake and Alex in defence, Tom (captain), Stuart and David in midfield and Alistair up front. Will and Daniel started as substitutes.

Martin and I asked the boys to try their best against a very good team. We asked them to take their time before passing, look for space where possible and to remember their positions. We also reminded them to enjoy their football!!

The game began and both teams started positively with Jake and Alex defending their lines well. Adam ( in a new position for him ) looked safe and confident in goal. David, in his first outfield start, ran up and down with energy and purpose. Charnock Richard looked dangerous when they attacked down either flank, with their forwards comfortable in possession and strong in the tackle, but Euxton held their own. Tom, Stuart and Alistair combined really well with some excellent passing and Stuart was unlucky on the right with a cross which didn't quite reach Alistair in the middle of the Charnock goal. Then after some pressure, Charnock scored with a shot which Adam was just unable to save despite a great effort to do so. 1.0 to Charnock Richard.

Euxton didn't let their heads drop and continued to pass and move really well, which even brought some compliments from the Charnock coaches! It was an exciting match as both teams played some great football at times. Jake and Alex at the back, talked to each other well and looked a solid unit, and Jake made a couple of fine interceptions. David was growing into the game and didn't look out of place as he continued to chase and harry really well. Then Euxton produced an outstanding move. Tom picked up the ball in midfield and passed to Stuart on the right who looked up and played a delightful pass to Alistair, who beat one defender before finishing with aplomb 1.1. Great goal! Not to be deterred, Charnock poured forward to try and regain their lead and although Euxton were defending well as a team, they managed to grab another goal 2.1 to Charnock.

However, this seemed to spur Euxton on and they continued to play some lovely stuff. David passed to Tom, who passed to Alistair who received the ball with his back to two defenders and then stroked a pass out to Stuart on the right in space. Stuart, them waited for the right moment before delivering a fantastic cross back into the Charnock penalty area, Alistair left it for Tom who smashed a shot just over the goal first time! Unbelievable, it was like watching Brazil!! As half time arrived, I still had a massive smile on my face from the Euxton Blacks' move of the season!!

For the second half, Daniel came on for Stuart, Will for Alex. Tom went in goal and we asked him to try and use his massive kick to our advantage ( as we had the slope in the second half! ) The boys had played their best football of the season and we asked them to continue as best they could despite the changes.

The match restarted and Charnock Richard ( who are a very good team ) pressed forward and Jake read the game well on countless occasions, tackling and hassling their forwards into mistakes. Both Daniel and Will tried really hard on the wings and David tried out the central midfield role and acquitted himself well with some excellent tackles. Alistair, looked dangerous on the counter-attack and continued to pass to his team-mates whenever he could.

Tom made one excellent save from point-blank range but Charnock scored again to make it 3.1. However, as before, Euxton would not lie down and created a couple of really good chances after some typical battling work from Will down the left. Tom was now enjoying himself smashing the ball deep into the Charnock half with his exocet goal kicks and Alistair's control and movement caused their defence some problems. Will and Daniel always looked to support their team-mates and Euxton looked a good unit all over the pitch. Unfortunately, football, as we know, is a very cruel game and Charnock scored again with a double deflection which Tom was just unable to keep out. 4.1 to Charnock. Just before the end, with Stuart now playing the midfield maestro role well, Will passed brilliantly to Alistair who took one touch before arrowing the ball into the net with another great finish 4.2. Euxton kept pushing but the match ended 4.2 to Charnock Richard.

This was a really good game of football against another excellent team. Despite Euxton's tough month of fixtures the boys seem to be progressing and today they played their best football at times this season. Well done to one and all!!

Man of the match today, again, very difficult as every one of them played their part, but Jake put in a fantastic display at the back - so well done to Jake!!

See you at training on monday ( back at Euxton don't forget!! )

Very wet conditions but the match was still deemed playable as Euxton Blacks lined up against BAC in the early morning kick-off.

Mindful of trying to ensure that every boy gets an equal chance, we decided to change the team a little today, even though we knew it would be a very difficult game against a very good team. Therefore, David started in goal, Alex and Adam in defence, Jake, Stuart and Daniel in midfield with Will up front. Tom (captain ) and Alistair started as substitutes.

Martin and I told the boys to hold their positions and to support each other at all times. We also asked them to tackle as well as they could and to track back when we didn't have the ball.

The game started in the rain and it soon became apparent that some of the boys didn't really like playing in these conditions!! The rain certainly didn't affect the BAC boys nearly as much as they began really strongly. Adam and Alex continued in the same manner from last week and made several really good interceptions, but BAC passed and controlled around our midfield well and soon went ahead with a good finish. 1.0 to BAC. Euxton were clearly struggling against a very fine team and were unable to stop the BAC number 10 who was probably the finest player we have played all season. Time and again he picked up the ball and danced around two or three challenges easily and looked dangerous in every attack. Euxton tried their best and Jake, Will, Daniel and Stuart kept running and kept their heads up but there was a gulf in quality throughout the first half.

BAC were awarded a penalty and David pulled off a fantastic save which was great to see, but this proved the calm before the storm as BAC scored three more times before half time. 4.0 at the break.

Martin and I really attempted to cheer the lads up and made two changes with Alistair and Tom coming on. We told them to keep their chins up and to try and win the second half!

Euxton certainly looked better in the second half and contested the match well, made more tackles and generally put in a much improved performance. Tom and Alistair combined well and Jake tackled like a tiger! Alex and Adam played well and were unlucky to be up against a really strong team. David made some good saves but was unable to do much about the goals conceded. BAC added four more excellent goals and Will manged to score twice, which the boys deserved for their efforts, but the game ended 8.2 to BAC.

As the boys trooped dejectly off we reminded them that they had been outplayed by an excellent team and that there is nothing wrong with losing a game of football! In addition, this had been the first time this season that we had been comprehensively beaten and we must not forget the other 15 performances as we continue through the season. We need to keep our heads up and learn from this match and try again next time. You can certainly learn more from a defeat and sometimes you just have to congratulate the better team - The BAC number 10 in particular was a real star!!

Man of the match today was Will - 2 goals and a terrific work rate too, well done to Will!

See you at training on Monday!

I took my son along to the free session on Thursday, I was impressed it is very different to the normal coaching, the players were taught little tricks and moves and then encouraged to try them in the small matches.

They use a small weighted ball that doesn't bounce much and that made it easier for the boys to control.

I have been attending for the last few Thursdays now and you would be amazed how Leo is trying to practice the moves at home and how much he has improved in a short time. The guy is starting up Saturday sessions soon I think it is great.

Typical spring day (finally! ) at Penwortham as Euxton Blacks lined up against Brinscall in the late morning kick-off.

With no subs, David was in goal, with Adam and Alex in defence, Tom (captain), Will and Stuart in midfield and Alistair the lone striker.

Martin and I asked the boys to play as a team and to try and help a team-mate whenever possible. We also asked them to take their time when they received the ball, and to look up before finding a pass and enjoy the match as much as possible! We knew that Brinscall would be tough opponents!

The match began and immediately Tom and Will combined well together and won a corner. Tom fired the kick in straight at the Brinscall keeper, who was unable to keep hold of the ball and Alistair pounced to score. 1.0 to Euxton. The boys had started really well which was great to see and they won several further corners which Brinscall defended resolutely. Their number 4 made some good interceptions and their goalkeeper looked assured and very capable.

The whole team looked confident and full of energy and were really trying to pass and move. David was calm and focused, Alex and Adam defended every through ball from Brinscall expertly, while Will and Stuart buzzed up and down the wings, supporting each attack and then tracking back diligently when necessary, Tom and Alistair continued their excellent link play together - They looked a real team !

However, Brinscall looked dangerous on the break and their number 10 was quick and clever. He managed to break free down the right and smashed a great shot at goal which David saved brilliantly, but Brinscall followed up to equalise. 1.1. The match then flowed from end to end, and Adam made a couple of outstanding tackles and played the ball very calmly out of defence too. Tom, Will and Stuart kept their positions and worked really hard - Alistair, as always, found space well and harried the Brinscall back-line well. The half time break came in a very competitive and excellent match.

Martin and I made sure the boys drank lots of water and congratulated them on a good first half performance. We reminded them to try and take their time when in possession and to continue playing in the same fashion.

The second half started and Euxton held their own well. Adam and Alex were talking to each other throughout, which was fantastic to see and David, too, kept his concentration which is really difficult to do when you're not involved much in the game. Early in the second half, Alistair collected the ball on the left from another great throw from Tom and danced past two challenges before finishly superbly from the narrowest of angles.2.1 to Euxton. Tom seemed to be covering every blade of grass and was marking the dangerous Brinscall number 10 well. However, Brinscall still pressed forward at every opportunity and managed to equalise after a fortunate deflection 2.2 - but both sides were very evenly matched.

As the game entered the later stages, Euxton continued to attack and Tom, Will and Stuart exchanged passes really well with Alistair just shooting past the post. Then, after a great piece of dribbling form Stuart, the ball bounced into the Brinscall box and Alistair lobbed the ball over the keeper into the net.3.2 to Euxton - a great finish! However, Brinscall just would not lie down and from another attack they managed to scramble the ball home in the dying seconds! 3.3

The match ended and it had been a fantastic game played in a wonderful spirit and Brinscall must be applauded for their excellent sportsmanship and excellent play.

Euxton had all played really well and at certain times during the game, passed and moved together brilliantly, in particular one move involving almost all of the boys will live long in the memory!

Man of the match - again very hard to award with Tom, Alistair(hat-trick), Alex and Will all deserving, but today it was Adam, who played an absolute blinder at the back! I counted about 12 timely interceptions and he kept calm in possession at all times, which is a fantastic quality to have - well done Adam!

See you on Monday at Training.

Finally spring was in the air as Euxton Blacks lined up against New Longton in the mid morning match.

With Jake and Adam both away, Martin and I asked Daniel to play in defence today alongside Alex, David was in goal, Tom ( captain), Will and Stuart in midfield and Alistair played up front.

We asked the boys to help each other with lots of encouragement and talking and to defend and attack as a team. We had no subs so we knew the boys might get tired towards the end.

The match started and Euxton began brightly with some excellent passing and movement, particularly between Tom, Will and Stuart in midfield. Alistair made some intelligent runs down both wings and tested the New Longton keeper with two early efforts. At the back, Daniel and Alex made some very important interceptions and covered their positions well. The game was good - end to end - New Longton were organised and dangerous on the break. David was untroubled for the first minutes of the first half as Euxton continued to play passes to each other and to work very hard. As soon as i mentioned to the New Longton coach, that i thought we were playing the best we had for ages, New Longton scored!! 1.0 - David was very unlucky with a shot that bounced off his chest!

Tom and Will then combined really well and Will's shot was blocked by some excellent New Longton Defending. Alistair broke clear again but his shot was well saved at the near post. Euxton were still playing some good football and were keeping their positions well, but New Longton scored another goal 2.0 - The Euxton heads did not drop and they tried really hard to get back into the game. Tom received a good pass from Alex and crossed from the right which the New Longton defence cleared, the ball broke to Alistair who crossed again and this time Will with magnificent determination forced the ball over the line. 2.1 to New Longton. This seemed to inspire the boys and they poured forward looking for the equaliser. Stuart and Will swopped positions and immediately, Stuart beat two men on the left and passed to Alistair on the wing, he skipped past his marker and ran to the touchline and crossed back into the box, Will arriving at pace just failed to control the pass. Then, down the right, Tom collected possession and looked up ( which was fantastic to see!! ) and then found Alistair with a great pass, who nutmegged the keeper to score 2.2 - This was a great game and half time brought lots of applause from the sidelines.

Martin and I congratulated Euxton on a very good first half display. The defence had looked solid, the midfield play busy and intelligent and they really had played well as a team. They looked a little tired but their spirits remained strong.

The second half started and New Longton pushed forward with intent. Alex made a couple of outstanding tackles ( as always ) and David saved well on two further occasions. Daniel, playing in an unfamiliar position and feeling a little bit under the weather looked calm and comfortable at the back and covered Alex well when he needed to. The game continued to flow from one end to the other. New Longton, who do produce excellent corners looked dangerous and they went ahead mid way through the second half. 3.2 to New Longton. David, again, was unlucky with the bounce of the ball.

Euxton still tried their best and always looked to pass to each other where they could. Will made a fantastic lung busting run down the right wing and just failed to find a final ball into the box. Stuart took up a great position in the New Longton box but just failed to control the ball and lost the opportunity to shoot - but he was intelligent enough to find the space in the first place!. Tom and Alistair passed well to each other but Euxton started to look tired. Just before the end, New Longton scored again. 4.2. However, Euxton still refused to give up and from another attack, a good shot from Tom caused chaos in the New Longton box and the ball somehow found it's way into the net after two deflections! 4.3 to New Longton.

The final whistle went and both sets of supporters showed their appreciation for a great game. New Longton were tough opponents and played well.

Euxton as always had showed character and determination and at the end all the boys drank as much water as they could find - they were shattered and had made us very proud. They had tried their best, but it is worth remembering that this is still a relatively new team and they are all novices in team games of football. Their attitude is always first class and that is all you can ask.

Man of ther match - very hard again today as they all deserved credit, but for 7 or 8 attempts on goal and for always looking to pass and move where possible and one excellent finish - Alistair - well done!

See you at training on Monday.
