West Kirby F.C return to League action in February as they play three games on the road and one at home, Nathan Brooks and his side will hope to gather momentum as they look to end the campaign strongly.
The month starts with an away trip to Litherland Sports Park for a 3pm kick off, the hosts currently sit in second place in the league and as manager Brooks says they will be ‘tough opponents’.
Following on from that away journey, in which a win for the visitors will be massive, Kirby will return to home action as they face Marshalls Reserves at Marine Park. Again another tricky tie with a 3pm kick off, the visitors winning the last meeting 2-1 in September.
However, most of the month’s games will be played on the road as Brooks’s side with new recruits such as Lewis Boardman will come up against South Liverpool Reserves and Cheshire Lines.
The game against South Liverpool will be played at Jericho Lane Sports Hub as the hosts sit comfortably in mid table. Adam Shelton and Luke Partington are ones to watch if they are selected to play by the hosts manager.
For Cheshire Lines, the game will be played at their Sports Ground with another scheduled three in the afternoon kick off. Lines were victorious in the previous meeting between the two sides, winning the fixture 7-1 in September. They have had a mix in form since but will be 6th in the table at the start of the month.
Ahead of a tricky February which brings a good few away games, new recruit Lewis Boardman spoke of the reasons behind his move.
“West Kirby is a massive club. A well established club too. They’ve been around for years and it’s an exciting time for them at the minute. They’ve had a tough few years sadly but, at the minute, there seems to be a real buzz around the club and the appointment of Nathan seems to have given the people involved, and the players a real lift. Although the table doesn’t reflect it, they’re much better than the bottom half of West Cheshire Division 2. They should be in the top half of Division 1, as a minimum and it’s up to us now to get back to that level. They’re big factors for me and my reasons for joining the club as well as the manager. I’m excited for the challenge ahead”
Speaking of how the current squad he finds himself amongst, in comparison to others he has played with, he says “I think there’s a real togetherness about this one. We know there’s going to be highs and lows so it’s important that we’re together as one through them. In terms of quality, on paper it’s a very strong squad but it’s all good and well saying that, it counts for nothing if you don’t perform and win games”.
