Home Ground: Litherland Sports Park
Team Colours: White Shirts

The thirds face local rivals Waterloo at Litherland Sports Park. The 2 sides played out a dour 0-0 draw on the opening day of the season. More recently, the 3rds have been winning a game and then losing a game as has been the case in the last 6. Waterloo have played ACOL 3 times in the last 4 matches suffering 2 heavy defeats before a creditable draw last time out. A win for Coeur could see them move within a point of their hosts.

About the Opposition

MCL Vets
League: I-Zingari Combination Veterans Division 2

The Over 35s travel to Kirkby to face MCL Vets. Coeur won the previous encounter between the sides with a last minute penalty. Last time out Coeur drew 2-2 with Old Xaverians to spoil their 100% record, though could have won the game having led 2-0. MCL's last game was a week earlier, also against Old Xavs, who beat them 3-1. Coeur will be after 3 points to maintain the pressure on the top 2.


Over 40s Team
Saturday 13th December

The over 40's are at home to De La Salle. Coeur couldnt field a team last week and had for forfeit the game to Bleak vets. De La Salle have only a solitary point this season and lost to Coeur early on in the season. With both sides in the bottom three, all 3 points could prove vital. The match kicks off at 2:00pm at Buckley Hill.
