Villagers endure tough afternoon at Bootle

The Villagers search for a first win of the season continues as they fell to a five-goal defeat away to Bootle on Saturday afternoon.

Steve Lloyd was again forced to make changes to his starting XI with Chris Kiernan returning in goal for Chris Davies, elsewhere Paddy Hamid came in for George Webster and Chris Bandell replaced Jack Woolley in attack.

The Villagers struggled to get used to the tough conditions on Merseyside early on as they forced to play against the wind in the opening half. Kiernan was called into action early on when he pulled off a fantastic double save to deny Ryan Cox an opener, but Cox opened his and Bootle’s account seconds later when he finished smartly from inside the box.

Five minutes later Cox got his second of the game as his effort was judged to have just gone over the line despite the best efforts of Niall Ford on the line. Going two goals behind sparked the Villagers into life and the lively Jack Irlam caused Bootle a number of issues, and he was somehow denied a goal when Charlie Taylor pulled off a stunning one handed save, and Taylor then denied Chris Smith from the resulting corner.

Ford was then on hand to clear one off the line as Bootle continued to threaten on the break, but the home side virtually killed the game off on the stroke of half time when Cox completed his hattrick as the home side broke through the Barnton backline once again.

Half Time – Bootle 3-0 Barnton

The second half saw Ryan Cox get his fourth goal of the game when he got on the end of a ball played across the six yard box.
Smith then went close with two chances as he was played through on goal but he was unable to get a consolation goal. Steven Jones then got in on the action for Bootle with the best goal of the day, with an effort from just inside the box that went in off the woodwork.

The remainder of the contest was played out without too much goal mouth action as Lloyd brought on Thomas Hassell for his Barnton debut from the bench but the damage was already done.

Next up for the Villagers is another trip to Merseyside to take on AFC Liverpool on Saturday afternoon with a 3pm kick off.
