South Liverpool Reserves 8 West Kirby 0
West Cheshire League Two
Saturday 19th February 2022
On a crushing afternoon for West Kirby F.C, South Liverpool Reserves scored eight against them to highlight the areas in which they need to improve on if they are to be successful going forwards.
The first half would finish 3-0 to the hosts as the visitors fell short to some well worked goals around the box. However, Nathan Brooks’ side did show the level of effort required for success as they worked hard off the ball to track runs and attempted to force the opposition into less dangerous areas of the pitch.
West Kirby had to get a goal in the opening stages of the second half if they were to threaten South Liverpool’s status on the day as winners. However, in a half that was played at a fast pace the hosts began to dictate the game. The movement off the ball, decision making in possession and ability to create 1 v 1s in wide areas were too much to control for their opponents.
Man of the match was awarded to South Liverpool Reserves captain, Kevin Martin, who was first to every second ball and broke on multiple occasions with well weighted passes.

West Kirby F.C manager Nathan Brooks spoke after the final whistle on what was a really disappointing afternoon for his team.
“A difficult day for myself and the players. Although the scoreline shouldn’t be ignored, there were some positives to take and at times it was enjoyable pitting our wits against that level of opposition. In the last 20 minutes the difference in fitness levels between the sides really took its toll, but overall our lads should be happy with the effort that they put into the match. Our season won’t be defined in situations like today and we are looking forward to the coming weeks”.
