Fire Service hit for 6 as Phoenix rises

Ovenden Phoenix and West Yorkshire Fire Service went head to head at Trinity Academy in their 3rd annual football match on Saturday 16 July.

Both teams

It looked set to be a case of Deja Vu as Ovenden Phoenix found themselves 4 – 1 down within the first 20 minutes before some changes were made.

Dan, Morgan, VinnyWith a strengthened back line, some great goalkeeping from Trav Allinson and more creativity added in the middle of the park it wasn’t long before Phoenix gained a foothold in what became a closely contested match.

There were some impressive debut’s made by new signings Vinny Finelli, Riley Farrar, Jordan Comer and Morgan Scott who’s football talents were noticed at Project_Twelve:31.

Dan Marham, player of 2 years and former captain said:

“It’s great to play a part in such an event and to know we still have the support of the West Yorkshire Fire Service and other services is brilliant.

We have some young lads coming through who really did themselves proud and the team seems to have that togetherness that we somewhat lacked in the past.

With Branny (Brandon Wilkinson) taking over as captain and Paddy Cooling taking on management for the new season I’m sure I’m not the only one with a higher level of optimism moving forward.”

Rayner and DomGoals from Brandon Wilkinson(3), Tommy Wade(1) and Ash Scully(2) were enough to see a comeback and a 6 – 4 win for Phoenix who lifted the trophy for a second time.

Karen Scanlon chair of Ovenden Phoenix said:

“It’s always good fun to play West Yorkshire Fire service as it marks the beginning of the season within the Halifax Sunday League and gives the team the opportunity to prepare for the coming 2016/17 season plus the added bonus of reclaiming the trophy!”

Adam Rayner was awarded man of the match for Ovenden Phoenix whilst Dom Furby was awarded Man of the match for West Yorkshire Fire Service.
