Newton Athletic YFC 2 v 0 Westminster Park FC
Westminster Park played much better in this match
but couldn't find the goals to get a positive result. The team worked very hard and it was only deep into the second-half
that Newton scored their goals. There are encouraging signs that the season is picking up, which is only what the whole
squad and Coach deserve.

Westminster Park FC 0 v 5 Chester Nomads
This was a disappointing
result and match because Westminster Park played poorly but clearly have some good, talented players. They rarely threatened
the Nomad's goal and, although there was much effort and endeavour, much of the play was spent in their own half. Joseph
Brackenbury was outstanding and also saved a penalty with Liam Eldridge's strength and determination unsettling the
Nomad's team. Luke Owen had a fine game on the left and was Man-of-the-Match. There were other good performances but as
a team they need to improve.

Blacon Youth 9 v 0 Westminster Park FC
A comprehensive defeat by a faster and stronger side. Blacon showed why they are top-of-the-table material with a
fine performance, leaving Westminster Park to show only rare examples of what they can do. The team tried hard and never gave
up, but a 2-0 deficit at half-time quickly increased and the last quarter of the match was just constant defence. Joseph Brackenbury
and Liam Eldridge were outstanding but credit to all the players for keeping going to the end.

Vicars Cross Dynamos 1 v 2 Westminster Park FC
A great match and a great result! A keenly fought contest between two sides who both deserve credit for playing good
football in such appalling conditions. Westminster Park took the lead through Ben Russell and then Vicars Cross equalised
before half-time. Late in the second-half Liam Eldridge scored the goal that won the match for Westminster Park. Everyone
in the team contributed to this priceless victory but for the second week in a row Sam Owens was outstanding. A special mention
too goes to the tireless Coach, Telis Rantos.

Westminster Park FC 0 v 7 Upton JFC
A disappointing result. Although they played well
in patches, Westminster Park were well beaten, particularly in the second-half. The team worked hard and there were some very
creditable performances but Upton, who only narrowly won in the away fixture, gradually took control. Sam Owens, who always
tries his best, is Man-of-the-Match this week.

Westminster Park FC 2 v 6 Princes Villa
A good effort, but mistakes late-on led to the
scoreline not really reflecting the match and it's competitiveness. Two more new players started today; Ian Shaw and James
Partridge, who both played well. Indeed, Westminster put some great moves together but there is still work to be
done. Sheton Tshabangu scored yet again and Harry Rowlands also got a goal. For their sheer consistancy and continuing
excellent work, Lian Eldridge and Joseph Brackenbury share the Man-of-the-Match award this week.

An outstanding match from two good teams. Westminster
Park played very well and every player deserves credit for taking on an unbeaten Malpas and competing with them all the way.
Liam Eldridge scored two good goals, supported by Shelton Tshabangu, Jack Field and Ollie Claireaux. Joseph Brackenbury
was yet again excellent in goal but it's hard to single out players after such a good team performance. Recognition for
a great first game with our Club gives Aaron Wynne Man-of-the-Match. Home

Blacon Youth 8 v 1 Westminster Park FC
A hard match against current top-of-the-table opposition led to a defeat but maybe
the goal-of-the-match by Shelton Tshabangu, scoring with an audacious chip in the second-half. Ten man Westminster Park
never gave up and Joseph Brackenbury had another fine game in goal but a good Blacon side won deservedly. Luke Owen's

first point! Another great performance from a ten-man team although it could easily have been a victory. In fact, both
teams contributed to a great match. Joseph Brackenbury and goal-scorer Liam Eldridge were again both outstanding, supported
by excellent displays from Ben Russell, who hit the bar and post, and Callum Corrigan, who scored and hit the post.
Sam Owens scored a late equaliser from a terrific header
near the end. Dino Rantos worked very hard in mid-field and Harry Rowlands was always dangerous up front. The unsung defensive
line never gave up and full-credit goes to Jack Field, Luke Owen and Ollie Claireaux. Well done to everyone. The first win
is surely near.

Westminster Park FC 1 v 8 Blacon Youth
A ten-man team fought hard against a very good
Blacon outfit. Often outplayed, they stuck at their task and countered a difficult first half with a much better second. A
couple of outstanding performances, from penalty scorer Liam Eldridge and goalie Joseph Brackenbury, added to the teams'
all-round brave effort, notably from Jack Field and Callum Corrigan, who was always involved. This is a bad run of scores
for the U12s, but as long as they keep going with committment, the wins will start coming.

Westminster Park FC 2 v 3 Newton Athletic YFC
A good performance from Westminster Park, the best of the season so far, with Joseph
Brackenbury and Liam Eldridge both outstanding, although it was agreed the whole team would be Man-of-the-Match. Ben Russell finished
a great counter-attacking move in the first-half and Callum Corrigan scored an excellent volley in the second but a competitive
Newton won this close contest. Definately a step forward, with, hopefully, more progress to come during the season.

Malpas and District JFC 3 v 0 Westminster Park FC
There was a lot that happened to make this match
unusual, not least the shortage of players on the Westminster Park side. But they made up for it by playing with real heart
and stamina, a fact commented on by the parents of both sides. The season has not started well but every player present can
take pride in their efforts. Of course, they were all Man-of-the-Match: Joseph Brackenbury, Luke Owen, Jordan White, Ben Russell,
Harry Rowlands, Jack Field and Callum Corrigan. Well done ev'ryone. Thanks go to Malpas for getting this match played.
Westminster Park FC 0 v 9 Ellesmere Port JFL
Another comprehensive defeat by a very good
side. Only in small patches did Westminster Park manage to control the ball and play a passing game. For most of the match
it was a case of catch-up but the players worked hard and chased right up to the final whistle. Credit to Ellesmere Port,
a fine side who will do well this season. Joseph Brackenbury was outstanding for 'Park in goal and the attitude of the
team was commendable but there is much hard work ahead.

Chester Nomads Colts 5 v 0 Westminster
A disappointing start to the season. This was a comprehensive defeat against a good Nomads team but undoubtedly Westminster
Park will pick up from here. There were some good performances but the outstanding player today was Ollie Claireaux, who never
gave up and performed with great stamina. There will be better results and team perfomances than this in the season to come.

result although Westminster Park's second half performance will bring encouragement. In the first-half, Newton could've
led by four or five instead of by the three goal lead they had. Joseph Brackenbury saved a penalty and was excellent throughout,
but the Team generally looked below par, an understandable effect perhaps of sunday's Cup trauma. After the break they
tightened up and scored two fine goals; a very popular one by Edward Stark, who was also Man-of-the-Match, and a great header
from Sam Owens provided by a corner kick from Liam Eldridge. Yet again, the Team tried hard but congratulations to the

Westminster Park 0 - 9 Newton Athletic Youth
A difficult semi-final occasion remembered
mainly for a serious injury to Jack Dixon just before half-time. Although often outplayed by Newton, Westminster Park battled
bravely to keep in the game. In the second half circumstances caught up with our team and they were overwhelmed. It was hard
to watch the team near the end but their attitude was commendable and a credit to the Club. Man-of-the-Match would have to
be Jack, for his courage today and his outstanding goal-scoring and skill throughout the season.

Westminster Park FC 2 - 4 Chester Nomads Colts
A tough, competitive match between two good teams in which this time the Nomads
eventually came out on top. In a game that featured four penalties (one saved) and much incident, Westminster Park can
take some encouragement from the performance and the effort they put in. Although starting with only ten men, they battled
hard with commendable tenacity. Jack Dixon scored a penalty and laid on the second for Harry Rowlands. Liam Eldridge was again
outstanding but Man-of-the-Match was goalie Joseph Brackenbury, for a terrific run of saves, including that saved penalty.
Well done to everyone who took part.

A great team effort from Westminster Park, with fine performances throughout the

with some excellent football. Mohamed and Jack both scored four and were always dangerous. Ben continued his good form with
two and there was one each from Sam and Dino. The whole team worked hard and never let up the effort. Full credit goes to
the Dynamos for keeping their heads up to the very end but they were well-beaten.

goal-keeping display from James and an excellent Man-of-the-Match game from Ollie stood out, but all the players were terrific,
showing a real spirit and heart against a very good Nomads' side. Well done to everyone.

A welcome victory but not Westminster Park's best performance this season, with the Wasp's trying hard right to

one for Mohamed Saleh. Westminster Park made heavy weather of things in the second-half, with an own-goal being their only
score. A win though, making three out of the last four games. Special mention goes to Luke Owen as Man-of-the-Match.
