A FANTASTIC display by the Westmorland FA Under 18s saw them overcome the Liverpool FA 4-3 at Kendal Town.

The home side were forced into numerous changes and had five debutants into the squad, but they pulled off a monumental win after coming from behind on three occasions against a very strong Liverpool team

Westmorland made the better start and looked dangerous going forward but despite the positive intent from the hosts it was Liverpool who opened the scoring after Jamie Madine collected a long ball before placing the ball past Jake Bryant.

The home side rallied and fired an instant response when Kelton Knowles's well timed cross fell to Nathan Hankinson who finished into the corner.

Westmorland created plenty of opportunities in a wide open game before Liverpool regained control after Madine outpaced the back four and slotted past the keeper.

However the home side struck back when Hankinson equalised for the hosts.

Into the second half and Jake Bryant in the Westmorland goal produced a wonderful double stop to keep his side in it, the latter of which was the save of the match.

But he was powerless to stop Liverpool regaining the lead when James Clark finished from close range after a quick attack caused the hosts off guard.

Yet Westmorland were not finished and 15 minutes remaining, they levelled in dramatic fashion when a deep cross by Jacob Carway was volleyed into the net by captain Reuben Swallow.

And they went ahead for the first time when in the closing stages a poor clearance fell to Stan Bradley who turned sharply inside the box and finished in the corner.

The home side had to defend well and clear numerous corners to see out the closing minutes but they did so with determination and as they final whistle sounded they were able to celebrate a famous victory.
