Capenhurst Villa 2-2 Maghull Maghull win 4-3 on penalties
Wirral Senior Cup
Saturday 8th March 2013 kick off 2pm
Pushing on two years ago, I was told to get more involved in sports, again, after my dance with the devil. Yesterday, you very nearly had me meeting him again. Don't ever do that again, more on that later.
On a pitch, that had more in common with a harvest festival, than footballing activities, it stood out that Maghulls normal…Continue

Maghull 1-0 Newton
Saturday 1st March 2013 kick off 3pm
I will find it hard to say much about this game. I don't think anyone could say much about it to be honest.
It had all the quality and gusto of a meaningless, end of season affair. But this game did have meaning, three very important points where up for grabs.
On a lovely sunny day, the newly found bright weather seemed to throw the players into some sort of strange lull. And…Continue

Maghull 3-2 Hale
Saturday 8th February 2014 kick off 2pm
The English weather is certainly doing it's best, to cause maximum chaos to the West Cheshire League fixtures this winter. Luckily, Maghull has a pitch that can cope, with all the constant rain of these past six to eight weeks.
So yesterday, we had a game on.
Before I go any further, the scoreline makes this game look like a close one. Only the incorrect sending off of Steve King, made the game a bit…Continue

Maghull 2-1 Heswall
Saturday 11th January 2014 kick off 2pm
I am back... stop groaning, but thanks for the get well stuff etc... now, to the important stuff.
Can we start hoping, that the weather takes a turn for the better and that the pitches on the Wirral dry up, after another bout of seemingly waterlogged grounds, stopped any league matches across the water.
In, what the bookies would describe as, a home banker, the conditions played a…Continue

Southport Trinity 1-2 Maghull
Saturday 4th January 2014 kick off 3pm
I wasn't present, so I cannot really comment on the proceedings. Just go on the minuscule of texts peeps sent me during the game. And being told to sit down and rest as my stitches will burst.
Maghull went a goal down early on.
Apparently quite sloppy...don't blame the messenger, this time lads.
A jinxy run, typical of Jay McGrane, brought about the equaliser. Colin McDonald…Continue

It’s amazing how much a pensioner sitting in Row Z is becoming a potential reason why David Moyes is floundering in his first few months at Manchester United.
The British press, egos still wounded by being treated for years with unheard of irreverence, are going after the man who now has no means of rebuttal, laying blame at his door for the demise of the club he led peerlessly for over 20 years.
There are two main accusations that are getting more and more column inches.…Continue

Maghull 4-2 Mallaby
Saturday 28th December 2013 kick off 2pm
Well, at least it was nice to get a game played. Though some parties did their utmost, to make sure it was a football match remembered for all the wrong reasons. The first minute brought a sign of what was to come !
A free kick was chipped into the box, Colin McDonald was pushed down, the referee waved play on. As our lost genius, David Coleman, would have said "Quite remarkable"

Maghull 2-0 Upton AA
Saturday 14th December 2013 kick off 2pm
Earlier in the season, it was mentioned that the reports were becoming, maybe, a little too long. Of all these thing's that i've done, this one took all my will and endeavour, to actually write.
To say, that there was more interest in what was happening at the Etihad, is an understatement. And not a blonde to be seen when needed. So let's cut to the quick and do what is necessary.

Maghull 2-0 Chester Nomads
Saturday 7th December 2013 kick off 2pm
It is a very difficult job to make much of Saturdays game, it felt like a huge non event. Maybe after the huge games in the previous two weeks, a lull was to be expected. Well, this was a game, purely for insomniacs.
With a vast array of talent at his disposal (and some still on the injured list) Phil Stafford will probably now have his hardest work of the season in front of him. By keeping…Continue

Maghull 4-0 South Liverpool
Saturday 30th November 2013 kick off 2pm
Was this really a title decider ! While we are still in November ?
After this performance, from back to front, I think it's time to smile like you mean it. Points on the board, is the main thing in football and Phil Staffords team have done just that. And done the double over their nearest challenger for good measure.
It was built up as a big game and didn't disappoint. And…Continue

Maghull 4-0 Vauxhall Motors Reserves
Saturday 23rd November 2013 kick off 2pm
A team in good form came to Old Hall Field on Saturday. And where quietly demolished.
Other than a strange moment with Lee Carrols footing, very early on, this was a performance that was one of the best of the season.
This Vauxhall side are no mugs, as last weeks result showed, but on Saturday it really was men against boys.In fact, after the torment given to the…Continue

Maghull 4-1 Christleton
Saturday 16th November 2013 kick off 2pm
Lets be honest, it wasn't good. But a 4-1 scoreline when it isn't good, is not too shabby.
We can try and gloss over things, like the poor finishing of the opposition, getting away with a few sloppy moments and a possible offside for our first goal. But maybe, just maybe, that female who goes by the name of luck, decided to be nice to us at last. Played way better and lost was the consensus…Continue

Ashville 2-1 Maghull
Saturday 9th November kick off 2.30pm Pyke Cup
I have no idea what Maghull have to do to win at Ashville, but playing well and dictating the play does not seem to be the answer.
For the second time this season, we have been the better side, played the better football, yet come away with nothing.
In fairness to the home side, they did play a part in the first half. But the way they took the lead, had us scratching our heads and will…Continue

Blacon YC 2-5 Maghull
Saturday 2nd November 2013 kick off 2pm
Revenge is not a dirty word (crevice is a dirty word) but we don't like to use it here.
This was all about, picking up another three points on our travels and putting some daylight between us and the chasing pack. And that is exactly what happened. With an added touch of glee, after the shambolic way we lost the home fixture earlier in the season.
Confidence was high and by the hour mark, so was…Continue

Mallaby 0-1 Maghull
Saturday 26th October 2013 kick off 3pm
The long trip to Mallaby promised many things, after last weeks annihilation of Chester Nomads. Not many were forthcoming,but the biggest promise was kept. Three valuable points.
Mallaby proved to be a very decent outfit and their league position seems to be a false one, on this showing.
If truth be told, they were the better side on the day. Plenty of possession, some decent play, but…Continue

Chester Nomads 0-7 Maghull
Saturday 19th October 2013
Was it written in the stars, or did the lads finally just click.
From the outset it looked promising, by half time it had eventually become a public slaughtering.
Tom Wharton started the humiliation, by missing a massive sitter inside the first five minutes. Heads were held in hands, as we could not see how Tom managed to put his effort over the bar, from so close in (don't worry, you are not alone…Continue

Maghull 0-0 South Sefton Borough aet South Sefton win 5-4 on penalties
Saturday 12th October kick off 2pm
It has only gone and happened again !
Twice, within four days. Who says that lightening doesn't strike twice ?
Not a lot to write, to be perfectly honest. Other than more total dominance, more chances wasted and more annoyance coupled with a heavy heart at losing a game that had many to nil written all over it.
South Sefton came with…Continue

Ashville 1-0 Maghull
Wednesday 9th October
How many times will it happen, A team dominates the play, yet somehow loses !
I suppose the winning run had to come to an end at some point, but in such a fashion and to such a goal, really doesn't make sense.
Every player put in a shift last night, nobody ducked out and if there were any semblance of sense in this game, then Maghull would have a six point lead again.
I really am finding it difficult to…Continue
