Northwood close in on final

Northwood Community Primary School are once again through to the regional finals of the Liverpool Foundation, Premier League Primary Stars Tournament with the boys finished top in their group.

The first game set the tone, a 3-0 win for Northwood with a stunning solo goal from captain Dylan Fraser. The next two games ended positively for Northwood with a further two wins.

Mason Draper, Ben Kelly and Ben Hall all found the back of the net with some lovely football played throughout.

The newest player to the team, Liam Cardus, didn’t let his nerves get the better of him. Some fantastic finger tip saves from the ‘keeper saw them only concede one goal. Andrew and Ellis stood strong in defence and supported the build up of play throughout each game.

Corey Couzens came close to scoring in the third game but a great save from the opposition’s goalkeeper denied him the chance. Despite this, he remained resilient and created plenty of assists for his teammates to score from.

Their final game was against Our Lady Immaculate, the first half ended 0-0. The boys had played over 30 minutes of football throughout the morning and had little energy left.

An early goal, from the opposition, in the second half, didn’t dampen their spirits. They dug deep and fought hard. They soon managed to work together and create an opening for captain, Dylan, who managed a lovely finish.

The game ended 1-1, enough to keep Northwood FC at the top of the leaderboard.

Despite being one of the youngest players on the pitch, Ben Kelly managed to net four goals making him the lead goal scorer for Northwood FC.

Overall a fantastic morning of football, the boys are now off to the regional finals which will be held at the Liverpool FC Academy. A big well done to their coaches Mr Fairbrother, Mr Partington and Mr Harrison who are just as excited for the regional finals!

The final is being played on the Wednesday 14 March.
