Lancashire U14 Youth Cup
Our U14’s travelled up the M6 on Sunday looking to progress to the Quarter Finals of the Lancashire Youth Cup.
After a tight 3-3 draw with Lancaster Youth Cosmos, the tie was to be decided by the dreaded Penalty Shootout.
Both teams had missed one of their 5 penalties and the shootout was at ‘Sudden Death’ stage when Lancaster stepped up. A brilliant save by Kian McPartlin meant that if the next Tarleton Corinthians penalty was successfully converted the lads would be into the Quarter Finals……
After his heroic penalty save, up stepped Kian, who calmly placed the ball past his opposite number to send the U14’s into the next round!!!
The lads now have a home tie against Kirkham Junior Reds who play in the Poulton & District Primary League (Championship). Early form suggests it could be a close game with Kirkham unbeaten in their respective league this season so far after 7 games.
The tie will be played at Carr Lane on 21st January 2018.
Well Done to Jonny Cookson and all his team!!!!
