Week 8 Report - Don't mention the vets
Thursday 31st October 2013

All five sides were in league action at the weekend, three of the sides at Buckley Hill and two away in South Liverpool .

Rob Sinclair The firsts were at Buckley Hill this week facing Bankfield. Bankfield had won just once in the league this season and Coeur ensured that remained the case. Phil's side started brightly and found themselves 3-0 up by the interval. The second half saw Coeur kicking into the strong wind and conceding early on. They held strong and were deserved winners. The result sees Coeur up to 7th in the table just 4 points of the top with a game in hand.

Paul Jackson The seconds were looking to bounce back from last week's disappointing draw against Collegiate. Facing a strong Buckley Hill wind Coeur started brightly and found themselves 1-0 up after a cheeky chipped pass by Darren saw Joe Hoose out-muscle the defender and lift the ball home. Cardinal Newman responded well and used the wind to their advantage, pinning Coeur back. They deservedly equalised, after a clearance hit a Coeur defender and dropped to a forward to smash home. Newman continued to have the better of the play and Coeur were happy to go in level at the break. The second half saw Coeur hit Newman with 3 goals in quick succession. Firstly Darren Woodcock fired home his fourth of the season before 2 Degsi corners produced 2 goals. Jacko was on hand to head the first one home from point blank range, before the second went directly in, despite the defender trying to clear it from behind the line. The result sees Coeur stay in 3rd in the table 2 points off the top.

Andy Kinsella The thirds travelled to Wavertree with a scratch side after several late drop outs and had to start with 10, until the latecomer arrived. After back to back draws against Old Xavs Coeur were looking to get back on the winning trail. 2 goals from Andy Kinsella, his seventh and eight of the campaign saw Coeur victorious in a tight encounter with both sides playing decent football. The result sees Coeur remain in 2nd 3 points behind Old Caths at the top.

Richie Gilroy The Over 35s travelled to Allerton to face Old Xaverians. Coeur struggled from start to finish and despite still being in the game at 1-3, they never got to grips with a decent Old Xavs side, eventually losing 9-1. Richie Gilroy was on the scoresheet for Coeur, his first goal for the club, in an otherwise forgetable day. John's side remain in 8th after the defeat with just 2 points from their 7 games so far.

Ian Dee The over 40's hosted Bleak Vets at Buckley Hill. Bleak had thrashed Coeur 8-2 on the opening day of the season and Saturday's match proved to be even worse. A scratch side for Ian Dee, saw them unceremoniously hammered 9-0 by Bleak. The result means that the over 40's slip to 10th in the table.
