Three points the hard way, subs to the rescue and a ramshackle ending.

Maghull 2 - 1 West Kirby

Saturday 28th September 2013 kick off 3pm

I feel like I am picking on the side of late. Maybe, being league leaders brings too much expectation.But Saturday really should have been a lot easier, than it turned out to be.

Then again, Lee Mullen having an Anders Limpar moment within two minutes did not help matters. What possessed him to handle the ball, only he knows, but it gave West Kirby the perfect start, as the penalty was…

A stroll in the park,Jekyll and Hyde and will lessons be learned.

Waterloo GSOB 2-4 Maghull

Saturday 21st September 2013 kick off 2pm

Let's be nice shall we.

Thirty seconds in, Mikey Cummins is put through, but his shot strikes the underside of the bar and down on the wrong side of the line, for Maghull. An early warning of what was to come ! Not really, because Waterloo, themselves, had a very good opportunity to open the scoring, when the centre forward was put clean through only to strike his shot woefully wide of the mark.…

Looking comfortable, becoming sloppy, and a very painful end

Newton 0-3 Maghull

Saturday 14th September 2013 kick off 3pm

I am here to report on a football match, so I will do that.

Two great strikes from the edge of the box, from Rob Dutton, gave us a cracking start. And a tremendous platform to go on and boost the goal difference.

A run from deep, cutting in from the left and taking advantage of a moses moment in the Newton defence, Dutton struck home to open the scoring. Soon after and a move between Tom Foley…

Missing chances, our Chopper Harris and a fine revival

Vauxhall Motors Reserves 1-3 Maghull

Tuesday 10th September 2013 kick off 7.30pm


This is becoming a good habit. Five away day trips and four wins.

The boss has certainly found that winning formula. Though he did puzzle us in the second half.

Against a side who played the first half with a very high line, Maghulls normal fluent passing game was left to the back four, while the midfield were left to make hay, spraying passes over and through…

Ten men run the game, consistency and we finally score from the spot.

Upton AA 3-4 Maghull

Saturday September 7th 2013 kick off 3pm

Seven goals, a sending off, some shocking defending and puzzlement with the officials. Now how do I cram all this into two paragraphs !

Dillon, Williams 2 and Hastings scored for Maghull, some players scored three goals for Upton amidst some awful defending,Mullen sent off for Maghull and the referee could have had a better game. Three points and back level with the leaders.

There, I did…

A shocker, a nightmare and a stinker

Maghull 1 - 3 Blacon YC

Saturday 31st August 2013 kick off 3pm

Sorry Phil, but that just about sums it up.

What began as sloppy, just deteriorated and eventually became a wish for the final whistle to get this game out of the way.

Yes some players were missing, for reasons unknown. But that is just clutching at straws, so lets get this over and done with.

The first five minutes set the pattern of the day. No cohesion, no slick passing and to…
