Some hope, a visit from Isaac and a team of Carraghers

Southport Trinity 1-2 Maghull

Ok we only had one..and another on the bench, but if it's good enough for that lot in L4, then it's good enough for us.

The changes where rung (and no doubt a few necks) after the weekends game. A tweak here and there, the loss of the skipper (through injury) and a debut.

Charty took the armband and the return of Jamie Blackhurst, Terry McDonald and James Robinson gave the side a better look.

A game of symmetry, an abacus and where X marked the spot

Cammell Lairds Reserves 10-0 Maghull  Yes ten !

There is a saying in football, that relates to a team getting a bit of a pasting "it could have been double figures"

For the first time ever, I saw it happen.

To steal a line from Blackadder, "It started badly, tailed off in the middle and the least said about the end, the better" 

All seemed to be going to plan. A penalty conceded after three minutes (scored) and a second goal,…

A pitch invasion, a fightback and the sucker punch (x2)

Mossley Hill 3-3 Maghull

Starting at the beginning always seems the best way. Unfortunately, a pattern is forming, where it seems a mountain, never mind a hill, is to be climbed, to get anything out of a game.

On a pitch that Franz Klammer would have had difficulty negotiating, Maghull decided to stay in the dressing room until the home side had struck twice (sorry,I retract that,they did play a huge part in the second goal)  Again,within the…

A game of 80 minutes and when V isn't for victory.

Maghull 0-2 Chester Nomads  http://www.pitchero.com/clubs/maghullfootballclub/

A good performance all round.

Granted,there where not chances galore,but enough where created and good ones too. Better luck in front of goal, would surely have seen, at least parity in the scoreline. Compounded by the visitors keeper having "one of those days"

Majority of possession and…

The father, the sun and the goalie spirit

Maghull 4-1 Breckfield   http://www.pitchero.com/clubs/maghullfootballclub/

It happened again !

Wakey wakey time is when the ref blows his whistle, not 5 or 10 minutes in. 

The Merseyside Christian League champions, came out all guns blazing and Maghull needed time to settle. As a rough estimate, they had more shots in those first ten minutes…

When is a win not a win. And 1982 revisited

Maghull 3-2 Edge Hill Boys  http://www.pitchero.com/clubs/maghullfootballclub/

Puzzled reporter needs specsavers.

Made it on time for once. Well, only two minutes late, thanks to Tony Blackburn, but that's another story.

Suprising start by the visitors, who, from a lot lower league, seemed to play like it was their cup final, not a warm up game. Some fiesty…

A new title, a labrador and a visit from bram stoker

Maghull 0-5 Cammell Lairds    http://www.pitchero.com/clubs/maghullfootballclub/

For the second time this pre season, a visiting side turns up at Old Hall Field and leaves with a resounding confidence boost.

After a much needed draw against South Liverpool (1-1) and another 1-1 draw with Hale, only to lose on penalties, this was a massive comedown against, what must be…
