It's time to raise a glass to The Famous Grapes who wrapped up the U11s Championship with one of the Merseyside & Halewood JFL's few remaining 100% records.

The Grapes powered past Albrights Juniors to clinch the title with a staggering 18 wins from 18 games and a goal difference of 110.

Meanwhile Allerton made sure of a creditable third place behind Woolton Lightning with a convincing win at Springwood Panthers, thanks to goals from Michael Johnson, Shaun Shepherd, Josh Edgar, Kyle Davies, Lucas Garbe and two for Justin Tolcher.

The title was also decided in the U9s Championship with unbeaten Parkview Colts overcoming third-placed Kingsthorne in a gripping match. Victory meant they won the league by a comfortable 22 points – their only minor blemish being a single drawn match.

Having already sewn up the U8s Conference, Woolton Jets signed off their season in some style with victory against a good Kingsthorne team at Camp Hill.

Jets led 1-0 at half-time thanks to a great run and finish from Liam Cummings and then started the second half strongly, with Patrick Grealis scoring the Jets' second and third goals, his second a beautifully-struck drive from outside the box.

In the same division, derby rivals Dynamo Woolton and Woolton Flyers were playing mainly for pride.

Third-placed Dynamo dominated from the start but were denied by some excellent goalkeeping before Denis McPoland scored just before the interval.

Dynamo then stretched their lead after the break with strikes from Luke Russell, Mason Standish (2), and a deflected shot from Finn Knubley.

In the U14s Conference, late-comers Commitar snatched second spot behind winners Halewood Town with an emphatic win over Netherley Valley.

The goals came from Dylan Inglesby (2), Liam Donohue-Ging (2), Rory Burns and Adam Crowley.

And Woolton Olympic cemented third spot with an excellent win at home to Beechwood, for whom goals from Danny Cull and Adam Randles were the only consolation.

In the post-season cup competitions, Arncliffe turned league placings on their heads by stealing past U10s Conference winners Huyton Juniors Celtic in the U10s Conference Cup quarter-final. Once again, the visitors had chief sharpshooter Joseph Foy to thank for a brilliant display capped by their winning goal.

Gilmour booked a semi-final clash with Netherley Valley in the same cup by seeing off Woolton Orient, thanks to contributions from Lewis Harding, Ethan Christiansen and Joe Bunn.
