Wolves’ Under 11s Reds made it through to the cup semi-final after a penalty shootout win against Blue Star.

Wolves dominated the majority of the game, but Joe Briggs, Matthew King, Harry Jackson, Taylor Wilson, Connor Jackson, Jamie Thornber, George Bland and star man Joe Wilson were all denied by the Blue Star keeper.

The match was won in the penalty shoot-out thanks to a good strike from George Bland and two fine saves from James Prendergast.

Wolves Under 9s beat Blackburn United 3-2 to maintain their challenge for the league title.

Despite twice being behind, Clitheroe showed great resilience.

Daniel Scott’s cool finish got the first equaliser, and after a rousing team talk and tactical changes by the coach, the second half was all Clitheroe.

Henri Hodgson got Wolves back on level terms, and he then turned provider, with his inswinging corner brilliantly headed into the top corner by William Slipper.

The team worked tirlessly to keep Blackburn at bay. Theo Jackson was man of the match, for his great performance in goal in the second half.
