Sportspy Reports – December 19th 2004

It should have been Christmas week with Christ the King but they were not to be found on Boundary Park this morning so instead here's a selection of pictures from all the games played at Commonedge Road.

Referee Max Cobb officiating in the 3A fixture between leaders Little Fat Jacks and the Old Town Hall.

Little Fat Jacks versus the Old Town Hall (Blue shirts)

When I was watching Jacks were 1-0 up but the Town Hall were playing well and had a good chance to equalise but the striker blazed it over the bar.

Clifton Co-op (Yellow shirts) in action against the Mariners Bar FC who'd been without a game for four weeks.

Clifton Co-op were 2-0 up early on in this one and looked to be heading for victory.

Premier Division leaders Quilligans FC (Blue shirts) defend a free kick against the Clarence FC

The Clarence FC's forwards Dave Cram (left) and Richard Burgess had plenty of opportunity to practice centre kicks in this one (As above).  They suffered a heavy defeat today, it was 7-0 when I left.

Bloomfield Vets manager Rolie Cross gives his troops a half time lecture during the big Division 2A game against the Dunes FC

The 'gloved man in black' today was Steve Maher, being kept busy in the middle.

When I moved on the Dunes had just made it all square at two goals a piece.  Ben McKay taking advantage of some very poor Vet's defending. Nick Carter there taking up most of the foreground.

Swift Hound FC defend a corner against Real Cahoots in the 3A fixture.

Real Cahoots keeping up the pressure on leaders Little Fat Jacks with a comfortable victory.

Fylde Coast Gates FC versus Marton Institute FC

When I passed through it looked as though Fylde Coast Gates were continuing in their recent run of good form on their way to three more points.

“Who are you looking at ?”  Eye to eye contact in the Premier Division fixture between Bloomfield WMC and Highfield Social.

Highfield Social (Green shirts) were 2-0 up shortly after this picture was taken and heading for the win.

The Dudley Industries FC back line have been under pressure lately and things weren't much different today in their 2B fixture against the Ship, Fleetwood FC.  They'll be looking to improve in 2005.

It might look as though the Ref is about to punch the Ship player on the end of his nose but he is in fact showing a yellow card.  The Ship though were looking like making it yet another league win.

“Oh God, please help us !”  Fluid Edge Reserves' 'striker' Colin Davies looks up for divine intervention in his team's heavy 13-2 defeat against the Subway FC (Yellow shirts). He claimed Fluid's second goal although it looked like Giles's free kick sailed straight in. 

Fluid Edge Chairman Chris Giles (Red) called into action for the Reserves today against the Subway, setting up both his side's goals.  If that shirt's filled now what will it be like after Christmas ? Fluid Edge started with 10, a number quickly reduced to 9 by ref Wayne Taylor (right) when the score was 1-1 – rather ironically for verbal abuse. Now we've never heard Wayne abusing a referee in his distinguished playing career for The Argosy have we…

All at would like to wish everyone involved in the Sunday Alliance, in whatever capacity, a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.
