Title race goes to the wire; FIVE-A-SIDE FOOTY Goals South.


THERE was some high profile games this week.

In the Thursday Premier Division, League leaders G.F.C took on third placed Affirmer Hunks in a game that would either keep G.F.C top by a point going into the final week of the season or propel Affirmer Hunks top and leave them in pole position. The game progressed and it was close for a while with the hunks leading 5-2 at half time. G.F.C came back strong in the second half pulling it back 9-9 with five minutes to go. In the final moments G.F.C snatched two late goals and with

an outstanding performance from Big Matty in goal for G.F.C there was no way back for Affirmer Hunks. Skeet F.C in second place could possibly overtake G.F.C in the final game of the season but the leaders will now feel they have one hand on the silverware. In the Wednesday Premier Division there was a top of the table clash, Bierkeller captained by Josh Brizell took on Brownlow Hill with captain Mark Johnson fielding a strong side. The game was played with great quality with both teams craving the win, Bierkeller led 5-2 at the interval with their goalkeeper being the star man and effectively keeping his side in the game. Bierkeller led from here on in until the final five minutes when Brownlow Hill really started to turn up the pressure. Within the final few minutes a mistake in the Bierkeller defence allowed Ryan Morgan in on goal to score the equaliser and ensure the spoils were shared. The game ended 5-5 which now leaves the teams sitting in second and third place respectively after two games played, with the season hotting up.

Leisure Leagues SOMETHING had to give this week in the Southport league, as the two teams with one hundred percent records squared off, and whilst both Vale Madrid and Crossens maintained their unbeaten starts, the 2-2 draw did little to further their title ambitions, although Madrid's Steven Cartwright can be thrilled with his display. At the other end of the table, The Brick got their first points, sneaking home by the odd goal in five against Mc Ds FC. Stork Electrical Services continue to short circuit in division one, losing 4-0 to Bayern Bru, who had been struggling themselves prior to Danny Woods' stunning display, while Real So So Bad are maintaining their promotion push after a 2-1 victory.

FC Southporto are off the mark in division two, sharing six goals with Borussia Teeth, while Yoke FC dropped their first points after a goalless draw with Dole Fruit. Bidston FC were the big winners in the Wirral five-a-side league, thumping early strugglers Pangy 13-8, while Birkenvegas got themselves off the mark with a creditable point against Underdogs as ten goals - and the points - were shared.

Goals North WHAT a week of football at GLN. 'On the road too....' were crowned Sunday five-a-side premier league champions and Real Ale Madrid were crowned the Sunday championship winners. Real Ale Madrid Captained by John Maguire have a strong squad consisting of Gavin, Paul, Cheesey and Connor. No change at the top on a Monday with The Men's Room top of the league and Substandard captained by Mark Gaudie hot on their heels.

In the Monday championship, Edwards FC captained by Rob Edwards remain undefeated at the top of the table with a 13-1. The Monday sevens league has Nil Nil Satis top of the tree and Transferquote FC in second with Tony Bellew coming into form. Samba in the Tuesday league had a great result beating Livo Lads 9-7. Leywood FC continued their good run of form at the top with an 11- 4 win over Umbro FC.

Obe1 Kinobe made it five wins from five and sit pretty at the top of the Tuesday league. The Brow remain top of the Wednesday sevens league while the unbeatable City Vaults top the Wednesday fives league.

Top of the Thursday sevens league is The Vale who look in good shape for the title.
