They say results like the 3-2 away win the Dock secured on Saturday at Page Celtic are the ones that you remember as a defining moment in the season. And although the performance was far from polished it had numerous flashes of skill and moments containing the qualities that take back titles.
Passion, desire and skill were all on show but more importantly an urgency to win back the ball coupled with a team who worked for each other. Team spirit is a great thing to possess, it's unquantifiable and you cannot make a team have it. It's organic and has a life of its own. Some sides never reach that level of unity which transferred onto the pitch can make partnerships flourish and team-mates react just that bit quicker, enough to make things work.
Sometimes having to work for a win can take a lot out of players but today the attitude demonstrated across the park by Waterloo Dock energised the whole squad and was extremely gratifying,not only for Shorty & Wazza, but everyone who came to watch. Make no mistake this is no easy place to take three points from and Page Celtic have a big, strong side with enough quality evident today to trouble most teams. The difference is we not only matched them in most areas but we had the edge in a few others. Granted they had several opportunities themselves to equalise and even edge ahead but without being unkind to them the feeling was that we had a helping hand in both of the home sides goals, while ours were forged from a creativity that has been difficult to sustain this season.
When its not going your way you've got to keep playing and make it go your way. And that's what we did today. We fought, we battled, we ran, we defended but most of all we attacked. And when you do enough of the latter and keep chasing lost causes you'll get your rewards. Coming from 1-0 down today via a stunning Liam Huson strike, to edge ahead courtesy of a Franny Barry effort and then look favourite after a Ray Putterill cracker still left us with work to do. But the graft was put in and all three points secured in a result that placed us back into second spot in the table, just two points behind a confident APH.
In a result which said more than the sum of its goals a message was sent to all-comers.
Ignore us at your peril, we won it five times on the run and we are going to take it back.
An important win against East Villa at the weekend saw us overtake them in the league standings as we move back up to fourth spot in the table. This leaves us handily placed to put pressure on the teams above us as we look to improve our league form and regain some consistency running up to the Xmas break.
Goals from Marc Stephens, Kevin Riley, Mick Downey and Joe Roberts secured all three points for the Dock after a spirited revival from East Villa saw the game hang in the balance at 3-2 before a towering header from advancing centre-half Mick Downey wrapped the game up for the home side. Just three points separate the top four as one of the closest league battles in recent years gathers pace.
We are away to Page Celtic on Saturday 16th November (2:15pm KO) in another tough league test but it is these games we must be winning if we are to put the pressure on the teams above us.
Just two games in December as follows:
Sat 7th December
Garswood United v Waterloo Dock AFC - LCFA Challenge Cup Quarter-Final - 13:45pm KO.
Sat 14th December
West Everton Xaviers v Waterloo Dock AFC - Liverpool County Premier League - 14:15pm KO.
An indifferent performance against Old Xaverians in the league plus subsequent results from other teams has saw us slide to 5th place in the Premier division. We face East Villa at home on Saturday in a game that has to produce nothing less than three points.
Despite this we recorded a battling 1-0 away win against West Cheshire league outfit Mossley Hill last Saturday after a Joey Roberts strike put us in the quarter-finals of the LCFA Challenge Cup on December 7th when we will face old foes Garswood United for a place in the last four.
If we can transmit the cup form to the league we can get back on track in the prior to the Christmas break hoping to come out strong in the New Year with ambitions to claim back the title we held so strongly for a record-breaking 5 consecutive seasons.
Although we are always on the look out for more quality players to aid the end of season run-in we still firmly believe we have what it takes to win trophies and this season will be no different to the others.
Up the Dock.
The winner of this weekends LCFA Challenge cup tie between ourselves and ROMA will travel to West Cheshire outfit Mossley Hill Athletic on Saturday 2nd November for the third round match.
The November fixtures have been added to the site.
Click the column on the left to get an update.
Apologies for the mis-print but tomorrow's match against the Allerton at the Dockers Club is a 3pm KO, and not 2:30pm as originally stated.
Had an email from the Liverpool County Premier League management committee advising us that we have been awarded the three points from the unfulfilled fixture against Red Rum from August 20th.
The league table will be updated in due course.
Make sure you all check the fixtures as we are at home in the LCFA Challenge Cup on Saturday against Old Holts, not away as people were indicating at the weekend.
The game is a 2pm KO at the Dockers Club and players will be contacted later in the week.
Slight change to the fixtures for October. Instead of playing REMYCA again on the 26th we will now be away to Old Xaverians.
Keep an eye on the site for County Cup and domestic cup updates. We are away to Stoneycroft at the weekend hoping to capitalise on the 3-0 home win against South Sefton at the weekend putting us in a confident position for the upcoming LCFA Challenge Cup tie the week after and the key league clash against current league leaders APH on Sat 28th September.
Up the Dock!
Provisional fixtures for October have been added to the website. Where there are gaps this may mean County Cup fixtures but these will be added as soon as the relevant ties are arranged.
Grow the Game funding makes instant impact
The club were recently fortunate enough to secure £5,000 'Grow the Game' funding from the Football Foundation thanks to the help from the development team to the Liverpool County FA. This money will be used over the next 3 years to aid the dveleopment of new teams that will come under the Waterloo Dock umbrella.
We had already been in discussion with Lee Pringle & Wayne Wardle about getting their side AFC Santos involved and these discussions have now taken a firm hold with this side becoming Waterloo Dock under 16's from the coming season onwards. We intend to work together over the next 12 months to make this a smooth transition and make the lads a full part of everything that goes on with the club.
Further to this we are also currently under discussion with another Anfield based club with a view to adding another two teams to the fold. If all parties are in agreement then next season we will also have an Under 10's and an Under 12's team operating under the club banner.
These are exciting and busy times for the club which all help us consolidate our position as one of the most succesful amateur clubs on Merseyside. Updates will be provided once they are available.
It's a grand old team.
Interview with Jimmy Davies on the web
Liverpool based Internet TV station Bay TV recently interviewed Jimmy to research the history and highlights of his 50 year career managing the Dock.
Please click thre link to view and if possible share on your Twitter and Facebook pages.
Jimmy Davies elected onto League committe for life.
At last nights AGM the Liverpool County Premier League elected Ex-Gaffer Jimmy Davies as Honorary Life Vice-President of the league. This prestigious position is in recognition to his long service to the club and contribution to amateur football. The club are proud to have one of their own on the league management committee and it is a fitting tribute to the Gaffer's hard work and dedication over the last 50 years.
It's a grand old team.....
New Committee members elected at the recent club AGM.
Ex-Dock Goalkeeper and lifelong supporter John Livingston has been appointed Vice-Chairman and will also take over the treasurers role from Larry Dowling this season. John is a Waterloo Dock stalwart and brings a keen business eye and organisational skills to the committee. He will be working closely with me as secretary to bring much needed finance into the club and help us progress things as we seek to develop over the next five years.
Current committee member Jake Gibbons will eventually take over as Chairman and both Sammy Austin and Phil Greenough have joined the committee to help out on match days and keep the club well ran.
Apologies about the absence of any updates but after an emotional last game and retirement for Ex-Gaffer Jimmy Davies I had a few weeks off to take stock of the situation. It has all been said about the magnificent contribution he has made to the club during his 50 year career and it is now time to take what he has given us and use it to drive the club forward over the coming seasons.
BBC piece on the Gaffer has now goine viral and we have had press enquiries from all over the world.
Should any press need to contact the club over this please call me on UK mobile number 07966 509 349 or mail me on email@example.com and we can deal with anything you need.
Please be mindful we have a Cup final tonight so avoid contacting us after 4pm.
Kind regards and many thanks for your interest.
Article on the BBC website about the Gaffer and his 50 years in charge.
Testimonial and charity match at Goodison went great. We saluted the Gaffer for his 50 years service and raised money for Ex-Dock legend Mark Maddox. Everyone at Everton were brilliant and we got 46 players past & present on the pitch in 90 minutes to pay tribute to Jimmy Davies, Larry Dowling and Mark himself.
It's a grand old team to play for.
We get emails from all over the world on the Dock website but it is always heartening when ex-players get in touch. I had an email today from Graham Lunt who is working out in Siberia. He wanted to say hello to all the lads especially Lar, Jake, Mally, Shorty and the Gaffer too. He is with another Dock stalwart Jimmy Ennis and if they can get a few more players out there they might be able to get a five-a-side team going as the Dock take over the Eastern Bloc.
Anyway all the best to Graham and Jimmy, be safe lads and try and come and see a game next season when you are back these ways.
Its a grand old team to play for.
After succesive league defeats to Liverpool North and APH, which dented our title ambitions, we are back on track with a semi-final win over East Villa and another win last night in the league against Stoneycroft.
The fixtures for May have been updated so please click the tab on the left for more information.
Blank weekend on the back of the 4-0 George Mahon win over Ford Motors. Still awating the other ties to take place before we find out who we are playing.
The fixtures for April have been added to the site so click left to check.
Goals from Alex Stranack (2), Joe Roberts and Dean Astbury gave Waterloo a tight 4-3 win over a battling Liverpool North side at Drummond Road on Saturday. If either side had converted just some of the many chances that went begging then it could have been a cricket score. You know you are under the cosh when your keeper has to pull off numerous saves and Tomski was indeed in fine form on the day. Nevertheless we held on for a very important three points and now its back to cup action for another two weeks starting with the LCFA Challenge Cup semi-final against South Sefton Borough on Saturday.
Finally back in league action tomorrow after 3 weeks of succesful cup fixtures. Retaining the trophy has been given added importance given that it will be long serving Gaffer and local footballing legend Jimmy Davies' last season at the helm. He has decided to step down after 50 years of loyal and unconditional service to the club he founded as a 20 year old young man.
It is difficult to put into words how much he means to us all but I know one thing he doesn't want us to bemoan his moving on but use what he has helped create by continuing to do what we do best. Win.
Lets continue to uphold the proud traditions of Waterloo Dock by retaining the title and progressing in each of the cup competitions.
Up the Dock!!
After another cracking win at the weekend we are now in the final stages of all competitions which we are entered. I must clarify however that we are only at the Qaurter-final stages of the George Mahon Cup and not the semi's as first thought.
We play South Sefton Borough in the last four of the LCFA Challenge Cup on Sat 9th March (Away 2pm KO) and the following week we are at home (Heron Eccles believe it or not) against Ford Motors in the George Mahon Cup qaurter-final. The draw for the Zingari (league cup) has yet to be made.
I will also have some news on the end of season charity testimonial at Goodison which is due to be played on Monday 13th May. This game will also be helping to raise money for Ex-Dock player Mark Maddox and the Merseyside branch of the Motor Neurone organisation.
A confident 4-1 win against Page Celtic in the Challenge cup on Saturday has given us an interesting semi-final away at premier league opponents South Sefton Borough. We have had some great games against the Boro' in the past and this one should be as challenging. Two goals apiece from Leighton McGivern and Dean Aastbury secured the last four berth for the Dock at the weekend and we march on hoping to reach another final in the cup we have won more than anyone in it's almost 100 year history.
More cup action at the weekend as we travel to Famous Grapes in the George Mahon Cup on Saturday where another intriguing tie awaits. Lets hope we can keep the hunt for the elusive four-timer on as we attempt to make a clean sweep of honours this season.
Aim high and settle for nothing less than the best.
Up the Dock.
After a 2 week break Waterloo Dock got back on track the weekend after a hard fought 3-2 win against West Everton Xavier's put us 5 points clear at the top of the County Premier Division table.
We have a 3 week break from league fixtures now as we play three consecutive cup games which could define our season. The fixtures for March have been added and as you can see there are a few gaps while the next round of these cup games get scheduled in the ensuing weeks.
With few games played since before Xmas it was great to get back on track in the 8-1 win against Roma on the 5th only to have our impetus stopped again with the cancellation of the Cheshire Lines game. The news on this is that they have now folded leaving only 13 teams remaining in the league.
Anyway back to football matters and the big game this weekend sees us up against old rivals Red Rum who are just behind us in the table with a few games in hand.
I will be updating the fixtures shortly so keep an eye on that page for information about February's games.
Up the Dock.
Last weeks hard-fought 4-3 away win at Roma sets us up for a home league tie against REMYCA tomorrow. Just awaiting some information regarding the pitch before I inform the players but it seems like we will be OK.
I have added the December fixtures but as you will see there will be no game on either Sat 22nd or Sat 29th December. The league will start again for the New Year on Sat 5th January 2013.
After a decent win against East Villa and a week off we travle to Southport Trinity on Saturday 10th to defend our Challenge Cup against the West Cheshire League side. Because of problems with the Southport grass surface we may be playing the game on a 3G surface in Skelmersdale but they have advised us that they wont know which until Wednesday.
Once I have the right information I will post on here and Twitter as well as sending a text.
Last week I wrote a Special feature for the Liverpool Echo about the decline of amateur football. So far it has been featured on the Guardian website and The Daily Mail have now picked up on it.
Please have a read, complete the survey and spread the word.
Inconsistency reigns so far this season with a cup win and league defeats leaving us through to the next round of the Challenge Cup but lying sixth in the Premier league table. With a week off on Saturday 3rd due to Rep side committments we really need the three points tomorrow against East Villa.
Maybe the break will give us time to re-group and come back stronger against Southport Trinity in the cup the following week. We have league games against Roma & REMYCA in the last two weeks of November so it is vital that we start picking up points in November or we could be in danger of falling off the pace.
It is an unusual situation for the Dock but it is one we need to adapt to quickly. We have always been know for our tenacity and fighting spirit and it is that we need to see now more than ever.
Up the Dock!!
Back in action tomorrow against West Everton Xaviers up at our new home pitch on the Heron Eccles complex. Should be an interesting fixture against the league new boys who have found their feet in recent weeks. Let's hope we can get a bit of form back and start to tally up the points in the league. Good luck to all involved.
Up the Dock!
We will be unable to capitalise on last weeks cracking 5-0 win over Warbreck as Cheshire Lines have been unable to field a team for today's Challenge Cup tie. We should get the points pending a LCFA decision but sincerley hope Cheshire Lines can pull through as the last thing this league needs is another team folding.
The fixtures have been added for October. Just awaiting information for the game on the 13th October but I suspect this could be the next round of the Challenge Cup (1st round is on Sept 22nd).
Keep an eye on the site for updates or check our Twitter account @WaterlooDockAFC
The fixtures have finally been released for August and September and for those who didn't know Waterloo Dock will be playing our home games at Heron Eccles pitches on Mather Avenue this season due to unforseen difficulties with the Dockers Club.
Obviously this is a big wrench having been at Edinburgh Park for so long but we are in a position where we have to move on and have been lucky enough to
secure one of the best pitches and facilities on Merseyside. There could be a chance of us returning to our spiritual home in the future so lets keep our fingers crossed for that.

If you have decided to move on we will need to know and I also need to know who is on holiday and when if it affects games.
Pre-season training starts next week at Breckside Park on Tuesday 3rd July. Wayne Wardle will be taking the sessions starting at 6:30pm on the Tuesday. There will also be another session at 10am on Saturday morning and the week after this the sessions will be Wed/Sat until 18th July.

Thanks to everyone involved with the club for your hard work this season. To committee, players and supporters.
It's a grand old team to play for. See you in July.
AIGBURTH PEOPLES HALL applied the finishing touches to a fine season when they beat Waterloo Dock 3-1 in the George Mahon Cup final on Thursday – to seal a fantastic league and cup double.
Join Secret Escapes for Free
Despite being 1-0 down, due to a fortuitous Tony Denson effort, Peoples Hall rallied just before the break and celebrated an Alan Tsang strike.
Then two absolute screamers from Gerard Smith early in the second half saw them take the trophy.
Waterloo had little in reply as they tried to hit back.
Peoples Hall still have two league games to play but it has already been a great campaign confirmed by a late-season run that showcased their credentials.
We won our George Mahon semi-final against North Liverpool last night coming back from 1-0 down to win 3-1. A Mike Lundon equaliser was supplemented by two great Lee Battle strikes to put us in another final where we will meet APH next Thursday at the LCFA. The game, which is a 6:30pm KO, gives us the opportunity to secure a cracking cup double after a somewhat mediocre league campaign.
Lets do it Waterloo. COYD!
The cup scorers and result data had gone missing and needs to be manually re-added to the site. This means the scoring table wont be accurate in the meantime.
Will sort it ASAP. I must have pressed the wrong button.....
The league was fanally won by APH after a draw and two losses in 7 days for us. A poor campaign in relation to the league and you will have to go back an awful long way to find a season in which we lost 8 games. In fact it may not have ever happened.
We did regroup to win the Challenge Cup against Kingsley making it a record 10 times and now we have the chance to go for the double as we face North Liverpool in the semi-final of the George Mahon this Friday night.
More updates to follow soon
After a draw and two defeats let's hope we can bring some silverware to this campaign by winning the LCFA Challenge Cup tonight. We play Kingsley United at the LVFA HQ on Walton Park and the game is a 6:30pm KO.
Most important game of the season lets hope we can get up for it.
C'mon the Dock!!
The Dock marched into the semi-finals of the George Mahon Cup after a convincing 5-1 home win over 1st division hopefuls West Everton Xavier's at the Dockers Club today. Another two-goal blast from Joey Roberts was added to by further efforts from Antony Battle, Lee Battle and Paul Kelly in a game that was all about the chances.
West Everton responded with a Dean Williamson goal and although the score line may appear one-sided things could have been different had they converted an early penalty. Still they came to play football which is commendable but Waterloo stepped it up with some great goals and plenty of effort to see them into the last four of the competition they have won 12 times.
Let's hope we can do it again this season as the quest for the treble gathers pace.
Another three points chalked up for the boys last night after a hard fought 3-1 win over Warbreck. The character being shown in these midweek games, which aren't easy, is a credit to the lads and although we never had it all our own way last night we battled it out and came up with another good away win.
Paul Ledsham grabbed another one making it four in 4 games for him while Joey Roberts added to his ever increasing tally supplemented by a goal from Brother Philly Roberts.
There were big performances all over the pitch and this sets us up for another tough tie in the George Mahon Cup on Saturday against First division high-fliers West Everton Xaviers.
Keep going lads you are doing the club proud.
Dock player Paul Ryder scores on his debut for top New Zealand side Wairapa.
Paul is working and travelling for a bit and has joined a local side while he is there. Will keep you up to date with his exploits.
Away tomorrow night against Warbreck in the league. Game is a 6:30pm KO at PlayFootball, Drummond Rd, Crosby L23 9YP.
Players meet at the Dockers Club at 5pm or up at the ground at 6pm.
If you didn't already know the game against Sacre Coeur was abandoned in the 87th minute due to a serious leg injury to one of their players. We were leading the match 2-0 at the time and the decision on the points award remained with the league.
Anyway the table shows us 7 points clear at the minute but I am not entirely sure if this is because we have been awarded the points for this game or in lieu of playing Essemmay OB.
Will update as soon as I have confirmation which it is.
Away tomorrow night against Sacre Coeur in the league. Game is a 6:30pm KO at PlayFootball, Drummond Rd, Crosby L23 9YP.
Players meet at the Dockers Club at 5pm or up at the ground at 6pm.
Another three points would be most wonderful :))
Another solid, convincing home win for Waterloo today courtesy of yet another Joe Roberts hat-trick which was supplemented by more strikes from Antony Battle and Paul Ledsham to give us three points in the 5-1 win against Red Rum.
This puts us 4 points clear of East Villa having played a game more and puts midfielder turned marksman Joe Roberts top of the scoring charts for the Dock so far this season.
Well done again to the lads today. Plenty of effort and hard work with the ball on the deck the majority of the game.
Keep playing. C'mon the Dock!!
At home today against Red Rum in the league. Game is a 3pm KO at the Dockers Club.
Just need to keep winning these games and put us back in with a chance of making it an unprecedented six titles on the run.
Get down to Edinburgh Park if you want to see the lads in action.
C'mon the Dock !!
The last few weeks have seen us starting quicker in games and looking more organised from the off.
Could this be down to the introduction of a decent warm-up and stretching session that Defender Wayne Wardle has brought to the club?
Check out 'Wazza's Warm-up' on YouTube and decide for yourself.
A joy to watch the lads tonight. A 6-0 away win at Cheshire Lines was confirmed by a cracking Joe Roberts treble and efforts from Anthony Battle, Thomas Wright and Paul Ledsham. We played well in every position and look confident and disciplined. Couldn't have picked a better time to find form and you can see the team spirit and will to win growing with each performance. This win takes us top of the Premier division by one point and puts us in a good position going into Saturday's game against Red Rum.
If it aint broke then don't try to fix it.
C'mon the Dock.
After Saturday's 2-0 home win against Ford Motors (Wright & Fleetwood) put us two points behind the leaders we travel to Cheshire Lines tonight for the first of the midweek games. The next 2 weeks may well see the title decided and it's now when we need to dig in an try and put the points on the board.
Good luck lads. See you at the Dockers at 5pm or up at the ground at 6pm.
The club now has it's very own You Tube channel where I will be hosting footage of games and also interviews with people involbved with the club. If you want to check what is on there search 'jdmusic1968' on the site and the channel will apppear with a list of videos. Alternatively follw the link below and it should direct you straight there.
A decent 2-1 away win at Page Celtic (Lee Battle & Ronnie Fleetwood) was overshadowed by a serious leg injury to club stalwart and defender John Poland. It looks like he has broke his lower left leg with the injury complicated by damage to a rod inserted from a previous break. His is in Whiston and hopefully will be getting operated on as soon as possible when the full extent of the injury will become clearer.
Everyone at the club wishes John all the best and a speedy recovery.
Take care Polo.
The fixtures have been updated from now until the end of the season.

Fightback of the season on Saturday from the lads. After being 1-0 down for most of the game against REMYCA side we snatched two of the most important goals of the season in the last 10 minutes from club stalwarts Lee Battle and Craig Sutherland for a fantastic 2-1 win. It showed how vital this three points was when we realised that all the teams around us all won their games too.
This win keeps us in the race for the title, one which has become the closest and most competetive in years. Well played to all the team who showed great character when our backs were to the wall.
C'mon the Dock!!
After last weeks 3-0 George Mahon Cup win over Quarry Bank OB it's off up to Litherland Sports Centre where we will play REMYCA United in the league. The Game is a 3pm KO if you are heading up there.
Players etc you know the score. Contact me if there are any problems.
At home today against Page Celtic in the Zingari Challenge Cup. The match is a 2:30pm KO at The Dockers Club.
Lets hope we can continue the battle for more silverware with a commanding performance today.
Back to full-strength and raring to go. C'mon the Dock.
Just edged it in the semi-final today against Croxteth at the Dockers, went through 5-4 on penalties after a nervy finish in a game which either side could have won. The job fell to Stevie Ashton to talke the last one which he slotted to put us through to the final against Kingsley United.
C'mon the Dock. Well done lads.
At home today against Croxteth FC today in the semi-final of the Challenge Cup. At full strength and right up for it. Get your head on it lads, this is the biggest game of the season so far.
Another game cancelled today due to a poor pitch at the Dockers Club. That means another 2 weeks until we play a game due to the rep side playing next week. Best get yourselves ready for a raft of midweek fixtures lads and also it appears the Zingari Cup might be getting binned off because of the fixture congestion.
Will keep you updated on things here and on Twitter.
if you want to follow me on Twitter it's @JimCorinthian
To follow the club account it's @WaterlooDockAFC
A cracking 5-1 win aginst REMYCA last Saturday saw us back up to 2nd in the table and a couple of points behind current leaders East Villa.
We are at home against them tomorrow in the league. The game is scheduled for a 3pm KO but given the freezing temperatures it may well be called off. The problem is we wont know until the day.
I will be in touch if it is called off.
After a fortunate 1-0 win in the Challenge Cup last Saturday it is back to league action tomorrow when we face REMYCA at the Dockers, 2pm KO. To say we needed 3 points would be a massive understatement but when your season is up and down it is time to dig in and find the character needed to get you on your way again.
Up the Dock!
Click this one to find out why we have another break next week.
Click the link below to read one of my Corinthian articles about Winter-breaks in local football.
We are finally back to playing some football after a ridiculous month-long break. Away to Old Xaverians in the league on Saturday and one can only hope the players have been keeping themselves fit as the Xav's have been having a few friendlies so wont have to blow the cobwebs away.
Anyway at 2pm KO, cant wait to get out the house and back on the line. Up the Dock.
I have updated the fixtures for December which are notable by the fact that there aren't many. With the representative side match plus free dates and the Xmas break we have only two matches between now and the New Year. This is a bit daft when you consider how mild the weather is and will probably cause major congestion with fixtures come April and May next year.
Anyway check the fixtures tab on the left to see what we have coming up.
Here are the results from the rest of the Premier league matches. As you can see all of our close rivals also won so no change in the table.
County Premier League Tables updated. Click the link to check the current standings.
County Rep side details confirmed. Click the link for details.
The Dock won 4-0 at home yesterday against Roma in the County Premier league after goals from Joey and Philly Roberts were supplemented by efforts from John Poland and Alex Bishop. A nice easy win with no major issues or injuries was just what we needed. Also a few new faces at the club yesterday with new signings Wayne Wardle and Phil Davies two welcome additions to the squad at a time when a bit of healthy competition for places will do us the world of good.
No game next week then we are at home to South Sefton Borough on the 26th and with only 4 points seperating the top 5 teams at the moment this is shaping up to be one of the closest and most competetive title races for years.
Back to winning ways at home today beating Roma 4-0 in a game which could have had a much bigger winning margin. Goals from Joe and Philly Roberts, plus a John Poland free-kick and an Alex Bishop header saw the Dock back to winning ways in the league. All out other rivals also won so no change in the table.
Will post all results, tables and fixtures later on.

There have been a few suggestions around the Xmas night out. For the last 2 years we have gone to the Buffet Star but a few people have suggested that we start off in the Dockers Club and ask Julie to do one of her own top buffet's. That way people can then decide if they wish to go into town after this or not.
Anyway give it some thought and we can discuss Saturday before making a decision.
At home against Fleetwood Hesketh in the LCFA Challenge Cup on Saturday. The game is at the Dockers Club and will be a 2pm KO. Players need to be at the ground for around 1:15pm. Remember there is a Liverpool home game so the Car Park will be almost full before this.
Saturday's game against St Aloysius has been postponed and will be re-arranged at a later date.
A cracking 6-0 win against Sacre Coeur today at the Dockers Club courtesy of doubles from Tony Denson and Cameron Dalton plus headers from Mike Lundon and Jack Wilson. This result puts us back top of the Liverpool County Premier League and gives us renewed confidence after an indifferent few weeks. We worked hard in the scorching heat, never gave up and played some nice football, to be fair to them they kept battling but our subs made a difference and they wilted in the last 15 minutes.
Home to Sacre Coeur tomorrow in the league, 3pm KO at the Dockers.
To say we needed a win would be an understatement.
Fixtures for October have been added.

Well in Waterloo Dock A.F.C. Great win against Page Celtic today, 2-1 at home after goals from Cameron Dalton and Liam Ryder. Could have been more and the result flattered them. Plenty of effort all over the park with grit and determination aplenty. We turned a corner today, right looking forward to East Villa next week. Well in lads.
Up the Dock!!
After a rare opening match reversal against Red Rum on Saturday the lads recovered their touch last night to beat Warbreck 5-1 at the Dockers. Still to find a settled side but hopefully things will become clearer over the ensuing weeks and matches.
Away to South Sefton Borough on Saturday 27th (3pm KO) before a run of 3 must-win home matches in the subsequent 10 days.
I have also added the fixtures for September which strangely enough have us playing East Villa twice both home and away in the month.
Click the fixtures tab for more information.
Will update the site once I have all the relevant information but here are the fixtures for August.

With the game against Southport Trinity a non-starter Saturday gone that means there will be one last pre-season match before we kick-off against Red Rum on Saturday.
Wed August 10th 2011 - Away to Salisbury Athletic 6:30pm KO.
Drummond Road, Liverpool L23 9YP.
Here are the details for the next two games, am off to WOMAD tomorrow. See you next Tuesday, good luck Saturday lads.

Mossley Hill Road, Liverpool L18 8BX
Tues Aug 2nd - Away at Marshalls 6:30pm KO.
IM Marsh Campus, Bankhill Rd, Aigburth, L17 6BD
An extremely deserved and hard fought 1-0 win against West Kirby at their place tonight courtesy of a Liam Ryder header in the first half. They had chances but we had the better and their Keeper kept them in it with a string of excellent saves in the second-half. Neverthless it was a tough run out against a competetive West Cheshire side and we can now look forward to playing Mossley Hill away on Saturday.
Second pre-season game on Tuesday against West Kirby 6:30pm KO at Marine Park, Greenbank Road, West Kirby.
Click the link for directions
A 2-2 draw in the first game against Newton. A great show by the Waterloo Vets too thanks to Mssrs Wright, Strode and Lee Battle who ran the show in the second half culminating in a 30 yard screamer from Battle (we wont mention the miss at the end).
Anyway a decent start to proceedings and a fair result in the end, see you all Tuesday.
First pre-season game tomorrow away at Newton FC 3pm KO at Frankby Road, Greasby, CH49 3PE.
Click the link for directions.
Change to one of the pre-season games.
Away fixture against West Kirby will now be on Tuesday 26th July instead of Saturday 30th July.
Fixture list updated to reflect this change.
The site has now been updated with the details of the 5 pre-season matches. The majority of the opponents hail from the West Cheshire Leagues with the exception of the last game against Salisbury Athletic. This match will be a bit of a first as it is against a Sunday league side. This has been arranged thanks to a good friend of the Dock who has been involved with the Salisbury for quite some time. Local football enthusiast and friend Ian Porter has promised us a cracking match at Drummond Road and it will be great to play against The Solly in a rare but anticipated fixture.
Click on Cup & other fixtures tab for details.
After the summer break and taking the time to get the two final defeats out of my system It is time to wake the site back up again.
Before I update the page with some pre-season fixtures I wanted to let you all know that Waterloo Dock now have our own page on Facebook. It is basically a group attached to my account but will get it's own individual updates throughout the coming season for the social networking aware people involved with the club. Anything that gets updated on here will get updated on Facebook and you can post comments, links or images on there.
The link is below so can all players and supporters please 'like' the group as soon as you get the chance and pass the word on to anyone else you think might be interested.
Finishing the season off with another two hard fought wins the table tells no lies and we have won the premier division by a clear 21 point margin with only one game lost the whole campaign. This is a fantastic feat and testimony to the talent within the current team.
Just one game left before we hibernate this site for a few months during which time I will be updating a few things and adding some more pictures.
A tough game ahead in the George Mahon final on Tuesday but if we can transfer our league form into this match there should be no problems.
Waterloo Dock AFC are Champions of the Liverpool County Premier Division 2010/2011 for the fifth year running!
An unbelievable achievement and one of which we can all be proud. A season long effort with a well deserved end result and many thanks firstly to the players and committee and also those who have followed every game this season. Without your support it wouldn't mean as much.
Congratulations to Jimmy Davies & Larry Dowling. Legends in amateur football who set the benchmark for everyone else.
This is what success looks like lads, enjoy it.
Its a grand old team to play for. Up the Waterloo......
After the midweek win against Red Rum and another 3 points against Lucas at the weekend we are now one win away from regaining the title we have made our own over the last 5 years.
Before that we have the small matter of the Zingari Challenge Cup final against South Liverpool tomorrow at the LCFA ground, 6:45 KO.
Hope all our stalwart supporters are there to cheer us on tomorrow, lets see if we can put this double in the bag.
C'mon the Waterloo!
All fixtures for the remainder of the season have now been added.
Click on the tab on the left for an update.
The current league tables have been added to the site.
Click on the link on the left to see how things are looking at the moment.
The fixtures have been added for the rest of the season barring a few minor changes, and one query regarding an outstanding league match.
Site will be updated tomorrow.
After Saturday's 3-3 draw with rivals East Villa the Dock went one better tonight beating first division Croxteth FC 3-2 in the George Mahon Cup quarter-finals. After some fine early saves Waterloo went 1-0 up via a Jamie O Brien effort inside the box only to go 2-1 down from the resurgent home side. However starting the second half the better side the Dock went level thanks to a stunning Jordan Shirley goal and although both sides had enough chances John Poland won the tie with virtually the last kick of the game after a long range free kick effort inside his own half eluded the Croxteth defense.
This hands us a home tie in the semi's next Monday afternoon where we will face the tough Sacre Coeur team to win a place against East Villa in the May final.
A smart brace from in-form Cameron Dalton saw the Waterloo to a 2-1 away win at Sacre Couer in a classic game of two halves. Starting yet another match with confidence we stormed ahead only to be pegged back in the second-half as the home side had their inevitable period of control. Some stout defending coupled with another great display from our stand-in keeper held off the host challenge to give us a hard fought victory which puts us 11 points clear at the top of the table.
With a season defining away game at East Villa next week a welcome break from midweek action should see us firing on all cyclinders and hopefully we can push on from today's three points and continue our quest for the treble.
Tables and fixtures will be updated later tonight.
Yet another 4-0 win at home against Esemmay OB in the Zingari Cup semi-final today in a game which was much tighter than the final score suggests. After sitting on a Cameron Dalton initiated 1-0 lead for much of the game the introduction of the subs provided a bit of a spark. A Tony Denson effort aided to by another two from Dalton, via some fine James Lundon crosses, saw the Dock to their third 4-0 result in as many weeks. The other semi-final was won by South Liverpool which means we now meet them in the final on May 3rd which will probably be at the County Ground in Walton park.
The league tables have ben updated - Click on the tab on the left hand side for details.
A stunning first 15 minutes saw the Dock race to a 3-0 lead against South Liverpool at the Dockers Club yesterday in a result which was confirmed with a last minute effort from Ste Flynn. This was added to his earlier strike which was supplemented by a Cameron Dalton goal and a stunning volley from Joe Roberts. It is safe to say that we are playing some of our best football this season and it couldnt have come at a better time. No doubt the strong dressing room is increasing the competition for places but regardless of this we are playing with the confidence that we have been searching for most of the season.
Doubles from both Tony Denson and Cameron Dalton put the Dock back on top of the Premier Division after a hardworking 4-1 win at home to bottom club Stoneycroft. They may be down but there are by no means out and they kept the pressure on even when we were ahead. But there was only going to be one outcome to this match and lets hope we can use these three points as a springboard to success for thr remainder of the season.
Tables etc will be updated later.
Back to Premier league action on Saturday for us, we need to start racking some points up so we can put in a strong challenge to retian the title we have won the last four years.
At home to Stoneycroft FC, lets see if we can kick-on with a good win.
Players be at the ground no later than 2:15pm please.
Having only just recovered from yesterdays draining penalty shoot-out triumph I have added the fixtures for March. It is probably one of the few times I have been lost for words but performances like that are what Waterloo Dock history is made of and no doubt that will be one of the games we will still be talking about in 20 years time.
Well done to the players who grafted til the death and showed character, heart and determination in equal measure.
Click on the fixtures tab on the left to see what March has in store for us.
Away in the Third round of the George Mahon Cup tomorrow against Aigburth Peoples Hall. The game is being played at the Cheshire Lines ground off Southmead Road and will be a 2pm KO.
Players meet at the Dockers Club at 12:15 or see you up at the ground for 1:15pm.

Another two points dropped as the Dock fall off the pace and the top of the table after a disappointing bore-draw at the Dockers Club. Both sides had chances to win the game and although blaming officials is not the way forward we had the ball over the line in the last minute but it never counted.
APH took advanatge of this securing a tight 2-1 win over Old Xavs to put them a point ahead at a crucial stage of the season. We will need to seriously up our game if we want to be challenging for honours on any front and with an away cup tie against close rivals APH next Saturday coming up it is time for players to stand up and be counted.
Tables will be updated late (if you care to see it that is).
Todays games was called off at around 11:30am due to a frozen pitch. This may have been somewhat premature as the Gaffer made an impromptu pitch inspection (unofficial of course) at about 1pm and the pitch was perfect. That will add to the ever growing list of midweek games that we will have to endure at the end of April.
After struggling to a 1-1 stalemate last Saturday nothing less than a win will do at the weekend if we want to keep our title challenge on track. Although we are back on top of the table on goal difference and with games in hand we need three points on Saturday as we enter a tough month of fixtures.
Fixtures added for February.
2 away cup games and two home league matches. A tricky month indeed when we will need to be on top of our game with the strongest squad possible.
Home on Saturday to Ford Motors in another tough fixture. Let's hope we can get the league campaign back on track and go into the next month with confidence and injury free.
Here are the other results from yesterday's Zingari Cup first round matches.
Cheshire Lines 2 v 4 Sacre Coeur FP
Essemmay OB 4 v 3 Red Rum Pens
Old Xaverians 3 v 1 Ford Motors
South Liverpool 4 v 1 Lucas Sports
South Sefton Boro’ 1 v 3 Page Celtic AET
Please note the change to Kick-off time on Saturday.
Now 2pm instead of 1:30.
The league tables have also been updated and can be viewed by clicking on the tab in the left hand column.
We start the latter half of the season in second place to close rivals East Villa by one point but with two games in hand.
Lets hope we can close that gap in the coming weeks and put the Dock back where they belong. On top.
The fixtures have been added for January 2011. Three home and one away game with the New Year kicking off with two home cup ties on the run.
Click on the fixtures tab for more information.
We are back in business! With the bad weather and the Xmas hiatus it has been almost 5 weeks absence from all footballing action.

Site closed for updates until the New Year.
Have a very Merry Christmas one and all.
Team Night out

Correction on the earlier comment it now appears that the Zingari Cup will be taking place this season and the first game is pencilled in for the New Year return on Saturday 8th January 2011.
I will update the fixtures section tomorrow with this and a few other games from January once I have confirmed the details with the league.
Out of the Challenge Cup on penalties on Saturday after getting back in the game and going ahead twice.
Anyway we need to get ourselves back on track and defend the league title and the George Mahon Cup in the New Year. It's doubtful that the Zingari Cup will be played with the league already well behind in fixtures but I will post on here when I get an update.
Next game will probably be on Saturday Januray 8th 2011 but again I will update the fixtures section of the page once I have confirmation.
Thanks to everyone involved with the club. Have a great Christmas and a Happy New Year.

A cracking 6-0 home win for Waterloo Dock at Edinburgh Park today. Performance of the season so far; solid in defence, industrious in midfield and some clinical finishing saw off REMYCA United in a result that puts The Dock three points clear at the top of the Liverpool County Premier League. A stunning treble from Tony Denson supplemented by an excellent James Croxton brace and a Lee McArdle effort gave the points to Waterloo. It was a day when you looked at certain players and thought, "I am so glad he plays for us".......
Tables will be updated later.

Apologies for the late notice regarding the cancellation of the Red Rum game but the information never got to us until after 3:30pm. Apparently there were a number of issues with the pitch but basically it wasn't ready to be played on.
Although they have failed to fulfil the fixture the game will most likely have to be replayed at some stage later in the season but we will wait for official confirmation from the league.
It's now three out of three after a laboured 3-1 away win at REMYCA , with the last midweek game against Red Rum on Tuesday 24th looking to be a much tighter affair.
Players - Meeting at The Dockers Club at 5 PM or up at the ground for 5:45 PM.
Red Rum play at Croxteth Comprehensive School on Parkstile lane, Croxteth, L11 0BD.

Drop me a mail or text me if you still want to go (remember we haven't had the league title trophy yet!)
A fantastic 4-0 win in the George Mahon final at Goodison against Page Celtic makes it four doubles in the last four years for Waterloo in what was a historic day for the club. Two goals apiece for both Joe Roberts and Thomas Rooney saw the Dock claim the trophy in a sweltering day at the home of Everton FC.
A profesional photogtapher was there on the day and he will be uploading the images on his website later in the week. As soon as we have the details we will post them here and text them individually.
Please click the link to view the final table for the Liverpool County league Premier division. Another title makes it 4 on the bounce now for Waterloo Dock which is a tremendous achievement.
The Liverpool County Premier league have informed us at a meeting last night that the Cup Final at Goodison will be a strictly ticket only affair. Our club has been given an amount of tickets to sell at £4 each so if you need to get them for friends and family etc you will have to purchase them on Saturday or Monday at the latest. Everton FC have also laid down strict guidelines regarding access to the facilities of the club (dressing rooms, dug-outs, concourse, club lounge etc) and as a result of this only 25 people (players, managers etc) will be allowed access prior to the game. However the club has been given a certain amount of tickets for committee members, sponsors and regular supporters to get in to watch the game and these arrangements can be discussed with the people concerned at the weekend or before the match.
Any questions please give me a ring on 07966 509 349.
A slight change in the Kick-off time for Monday's match against East Villa. It will now be 7:30pm and not 6:30pm as originally stated.

The Kick-off time against Roma on Saturday is now 1pm in lieu of the FA Cup Final kicking off at 3pm and we will be playing our remaining league fixture against East Villa on Monday night with an expected KO time of 6:30pm.
This will all be confirmed via text over the next day or two.

Still trying to arrange one of our last league matches with East Villa. The problem at the moment is that they still have a few midweek games already scheduled in so trying to find a gap suitable to both teams is proving a little difficult. There is stil an outside chance that it may take place this week but I will update the site and the players individually once I know more.
A cracking 2-1 semi-final victory on Saturday see's Waterloo Dock through to an historic George Mahon Cup Final at Goodison Park on Sunday 23rd May 2010. Goals from Joe Roberts and Thomas Rooney were enough to see us through to play Page Celtic who already reached the final a few weeks back.
Note to players
Meet at the Dockers Club at 1:30pm on Saturday or at the ground for 2pm if you are making your own way.
Congratulations to the players and everyone involved with the club on winning the league title to become Liverpool County League Premier Division champions for season 2009/2010. This is an historic victory which means that we have now won the league four years on the trot. This means that we are the only team to have won the title since the league started and it is a record for the club as it is the most consecutive times we have ever won the league since we were founded over 47 years ago.
After eqaulising via Lee McArdle during a first half that saw Old Xaverians have the better of the chances Waterloo began to stamp their authority on the game going 2-1 in front after Paul Ryder latched onto a loose ball in the box. Leighton McGivern put the game beyond doubt after a netting fantastic overhead kick late in the game and despite Old Xavs pulling one back to make it 3-2 The Dock took the point which makes it impossible for them to be caught with 2 games left to play.
And the updated table as promised can be found by clicking the link here.
Here are some results from tonight's Premier League matches, an updated league table will follow shortly.
Tuesday 27th April 2010
Ford Motors 1 v 1 Sacre Coeur FP
Page Celtic 1 v 2 East Villa
Red Rum 3 v 5 Lucas Sports
South Sefton Boro’ 1 v 3 Aigburth PH
An ejoyable 5-1 result on Saturday see's us face APH in the semi-final of the George Mahon Cup. The winners of this game will face Page Celtic who beat Essemmay in the other semi courtesy of a last minute header from player/manager Steve Daley. The game looks like it could be on Saturday 8th May but again this has not been confirmed as some rescheduling will need to be done with other fixtures.
After a few 'scheduling' difficulties we will be playing Croxteth on Saturday in the George Mahon Cup quarter-finals. The game is at home and will be at the slightly later kick-off time of 3:15pm. This has been adjusted to allow NELTC to finish their home game and give us the chance to get in the dressing room with enough time to spare.
I wil text out the details to all concerned on Thursday.
If you did not already know I am doing a Triathlon for Charity on June 27th to raise money for my Nephew Daniel who suffers from Myotonic Dystrophy. A few people have already donated via the website which is much apprecaited and I will have sponsor forms over the next few weeks. Please help as it is a very worthy cause.
Congratulations to the Waterloo Dock squad members who play for the succesful Liverpool County Representative team that have just won through to the NLS Cup final. James Croxton, Liam Huson, Paul Ryder, James Lundon, Michael Lundon and Joey Roberts are a credit to the club and the league and we wish them best of luck on May 1st 2010.
Croxteth won their 3rd round match against Cheshire Lines in the George Mahon Cup which means we meet them in the 1/4 finals next Saturday at the Dockers Club.
The LCPL rep side won through to the final of the FA NLS Cup in Guernsey on May 1st after beating Yorkshire Old Boys at Walton park 3-2 today. Our own Joe Roberts grabbed a double to see Stuat Daly's lads through to an historic final and the opportunity to play in the UEFA tournament next year if they can win.

If there was ever a game that confirmed that old football cliche 'A game of two halves' then today was it. After some of the best possession play in the last few weeks coupled with a desire to win the ball we struggled in the second half and if we are going to be honest we were lucky to end up with the three points. However we did take the win despite a spirited attempt from South Sefton and if we are going to win the league again we need to show a bit more resolve and determination for the full ninety minutes.
I have attached a match report for the whole of the league and will update the league tables tomorrow. A tough game at home to South Liverpool awaits next week when a win is an absolute must.
The County Premier League tables have also been updated and the new version with the resigned teams records expunged can be viewed by clicking on the league tables tab on the main menu.
I have amended the fixture list to show the new run-in minus the Birchfield and Albany games. We now have six league games left to play plus the George Mahon cup (opponents yet to be decided).
Click on the fixtures tab on the left for an update.
Albany Athletic have today resigned from the league. Apparently they owed £400 to the County FA for disciplinary fines and instead of waiting to have their fixtures suspended jumped ship. This follows on from the resignation of Birchfield FC last week and now leaves us without a game tomorrow and next Tuesday. This is bad news for us and bad news for the league in general and no doubt the issues surrounding these resignations will be much discussed over the next few weeks.
Will contact you all with an update when one is available.
APH won 3-0 last night so we now have to gain maximum points from the Easter fixture list. We have 3 games in 5 days and no less than 9 points will be enough to keep us at the top of the table.
The only problem we have at the moment is with the ridiculous turn for the worst the weathewr has taken today. We have had snow falling in some parts of Merseyside earlier today. There is a agame every day for the next 6 consecutive days on the first pitch at the Dockers Club and it remains to be seen if the surface can put up with that kind of battering. it is well looked after though so hopefully we should be OK as the last thing we need at this stage of the season is postponed matches.
A good win against Kingsley, despite the slow start, and the news that Birchfield have resigned means we have gone back top of the table. Although we have yet to play them the same applies to APH so there is no advantage to either team. The league still rests in the hands of APH at the moment as they can go a point ahead of us if they win all their games
I'm taking part in the Liverpool Triathlon 2010 on 27/06/2010 to raise money for Myotonic Dystrophy Support Group and I'd really appreciate your support.
It's easy to donate online with a credit or debit card - just go to my JustGiving page:
The site is pretty basic at the moment but I will be updating it soon and will send out regular mails to keep anyone who donates up to date. I just need to get the ball rolling as soon as possible.
JustGiving sends your donation straight to the Myotonic Dystrophy Support Group and automatically reclaims Gift Aid if you're a UK taxpayer, so your donation is worth even more. I hope you'll join me in supporting Myotonic Dystrophy Support Group. I also have sponsor forms so if you feel you are able to help please drop me a mail with your address and I will send one out to you.
The fixtures have been updated until the end of the season with the last game on May 15th away to Red Rum. There are still a few possibles with the opponents of the George Mahon game to be decided so keep an eye on this page for updates.

Bit of a mistake as we thought yesterday's game was the quarter-finals when it was only the Third round. The next round wil be the quarter-finals and here are the teams going into the hat for the draw.
Croxteth or Cheshire Lines
South Sefton Boro’
Wil let you know the draw as soon as it is made.
Click on the link for a look at the updated Premier league table. Old Xav's pull further ahead courtesy of a win and other teams inactivity due to George Mahon action.
A draw against St Aloysius and other results not going our way have seen us knocked off the top of the table for the first time since October 2009. Old Xaverians have gone top having played four more games and APH can now overtake us if they win their games in hand. It's out of our hands now but we need to go on a winning run to stay in contention.
Will update the tables and reports later in the week.
A quick update on competitions. The Zingari Cup has been pulled as the committee don't hink we will have enough time to play all the games. Mr Davies senior has put in a ltter of protest and a few other teams have registered their displeasure at the decision.
List of competitions axed.
More news coming soon...
The fixtures have now been updated until the end of April. Five games in 11 days is a tough ask by anyone's standards but this is when the league wil be won and lost.
I will add the fixtures for May > season end tomorrow.
Click on the fixtures tab for an update.
The fixtures up to the end of the season have been put out provisionally on the LCPL website. I will be adding them to this site before the end of the week but if you want a sneak preview click on this link and it will redirect you to the word document that contains all fixtures from now until May.
Waterloo Dock are back to winning ways after a 2-1 today win over Roma in the George Mahon cup. We play South Liverpool in the 1/4 finals in two weeks time. Let's hope we can reverse last years result and march on to the Final which takes place in Goodison Park no less.
In the National League System Cup Quarter Final the Liverpool County FA red side played against the Cambridgeshire League at the County FA. After a hard fought 120 minutes the Liverpool team are through to the semi finals after a cracking 3-1 after extra-time. This result see’s them through to another home tie against the Yorkshire Old Boys League on Saturday 10 April. Well done to the Dock's Joey Roberts and James Croxton who both netted and congratulations go to Stuart Daly, John Davies and all the players who have helped them to this position.

Firstly Happy Birthday to our Sonny who is four today!
Now on to business.
Corinthian is looking for some help People.
I have joined Facebook, Flickr and Twitter as part of the Liverpool Echo's campaign to take Corinthian global and online.
They will be doing a full media launch in the next few weeks to get people interested but I need to do some background work first. What I need is to get people added to my groups if you get my meaning. I am new to all this so any help and advice will be appreciated.
The Facebook page - It is a fan page and is listed as Corinthian with a football as my wallpaper. See if you can find it and add it to your pages or whatever it is you do. I am going to keep it football related and will see how it develops over the coming weeks but if you can get on it that would be good.
Twitter - I know you may not use this but if you could create an account and follow my posts (when I get around to making them) that would be good. I am listed as CorinthEcho so if you can find me and add it great.
Flickr. This is for photo updates from football teams etc. While not as important as the others it is live so if you could create a flickr account and join the group that would be a great help. Again search for Corinthian and do the needful please.
If you could forward this mail on to anyone you think might be interested in local football or football in general then please do so as the more people I can get prior to the full launch would be a bonus.
While it may not have been an altogether sparking performance the 2-0 win against Page Celtic today will be one you look back to at the end of the season as a worthwhile victory. Considering they beat us when we were playing well at the start of the season it is a solid three points and takes us comfortably clear at the top.
We continue to add up the points while other teams around us are dropping them and even though it is taking us a bit of time to get back into our groove after the enforced Christmas and New Year lay-off there can be no doubt that the best has yet to be seen from Waterloo Dock. We have a lot of people in the dressing room but remember we are fighting for honours on four fronts and to achieve success we will need every single player in the run in.
Will update the tables and match reports by Monday so keep checking in.
We have drawn APH at home in the semi-finals of the LCFA Challenge Cup and will play them at The Dockers Club on Saturday 13th February.
Click on the fixtures tab for an updated run through of our upcoming games.
The fixtures are really up the wall at the moment with Mr Berwick doing them on a week-for-week basis while he gets all the unplayed LCFA ties out of the way. We will be playing Page Celtic at home next week as initially planned and after that away to Sacre Coeur but then it all gets a bit messy. We were down to play SS Boro at home on the 13th Feb but this now looks like it will be Challenge Cup semi-finals week and no further games can be pencilled in until this fixture is satisfied.
As soon as I have a set of fixtures for February I will update here and let you know.
Great to be finally back in action and what better way to kick-start the New Year fixtures than with a place in the LCFA Challenge Cup semi-finals. Check the match report for more details. Here are the other resulst from the Quarter-finals.
Aigburth PH 3 v 1 Eagle Sports
Crossfields 1 v 2 St Aloysius
South Sefton Boro 2 v 0 Birchfield
Will update these pages once I know who we are playing.
ALL GAMES CANCELLED AT THE WEEKEND
Will get you an update when we have one but fixtures are going to have to be re-arranged over the coming weeks. Suspect this weather could be with us for a few weeks so try and keep fit while the extended seasonal break continues.
Will be in touch.
THE BIG FREEZE CONTINUES
Plenty of football matches have already been called off for the weekend but our game away at Old Xaverians has not been pulled yet. Will update everyone once we know more but don't build your hopes up. Most pitches across Merseyside are under 3 feet of snow and frozen solid and will stay that way as long as the cold snap continues.
Keep an eye out for further updates.
Can't let it pass without wishing Happy Birthday to The Gaffer, Jimmy Davies. He is our own footballing legend and I am sure you all join me in wishing him many happy returns as we look forward to our own 50th anniversary.
All the best Pops!
A great win for The Dock at the weekend which moves us nine points clear at the top of the Premier Divsion. Another win at the weekend would see us in a nice position going into January when we can concentrate on the cup games. All league tables, fixtures and other stuff have all been updated on the site so please take a look.
Thanks to everyone who turned up on the night out on Saturday, it was a cracking laugh and good to see some of our ex-players turn up as well.
It's a grand old team to play for........

FA national League Systens Cup - Liverpool 2 Isle of Man 0
In the Liverpool County Premier league this week all premier league games were called off to make way for the FA National League System Cup second round with Stuart Daly’s representative side taking on tournament winners from 2005, the Isle of Man League. The game started slowly with both teams a little nervous and neither team taking much of an advantage during the first 45 minutes with no real chances or clear shots on goal. Liverpool came into the game in the second half and began to pass the ball around sweetly and also creating a few chances from the majority possession they began to enjoy. The game eventually sprang to life and it was James Lundon (Waterloo Dock AFC) who was the hero of the day with two goals in the last twenty minutes after being laid on by Dave Cooney (Roma FC). Lundon could have made it a hat-trick in the dying minutes of the game and even though the Isle of Man pulled one back there was not enough time for the Liverpool team to get nervous as the game finished 2-1 shortly after. A great win for the County League rep side see’s them through to the next round and we will keep an eye on the FA website to see what the draw brings in the coming weeks as the possibility of a final in 2010 grows closer.
Dont forget the Liverpool County league Representative side are playing against the Isle Of Man League on Saturday 5th December in the FA National League systems Cup.
The game takes place at the FA County Ground Walton Park and will be a 2pm KO. Try and get along and support Stuart Daly and the lads.

We are now 6 points clear with 1 game in hand on our nearest rivals.

Apologies for tthe late notice regarding tonight's game cancellation. The County FA made the decision early morning after speaking to the groundsman and getting weather reports for the region for tonight. Apparently the playing service wasn't the best anyway and they were concerned about it cutting up badly and the potential for injuries.
As soon as I have any information regarding a rescheduled date I will post it here.

The Liverpool Echo printed an article regarding the senior cup ban In Saturday's sports pages. Please click the link if you would like to read it. Thanks again to Dave Prentice and Christopher Beesley for their support. Also available in full copy on the forum.
Senior Cup Shocker.
Waterloo Dock will take no part in the next Senior Cup competition after a blanket ban on all Level 7 clubs by the Liverpool County FA. They have made this decision based on ground grading and this applies to all clubs at this level. This seems ludicrous after they agreed, with much fanfare 4 years ago, to introduce this level of club on the premise that it would benefit grass roots football in the area.
When you see the impact we as a club made in the competition this year by losing out narrowly to Liverpool reserves in the final it makes you question the real motives. Letters of complaint have been sent to the FA and the County Premier League management committee have made their views known. The Liverpool Echo have also been in touch regarding this and we expect a story on this to be published soon.
We as a club had an idea that this was going to happen and are not surprised by the manoeuvre. For our part we would love the opportunity to be involved again but you do get the feeling that our presence in the latter stages of the competition were neither expected nor appreciated in some quarters.
Here are a quick view of the games for September.

A great game tonight and another fantastic win for the Dock after a few scares. Well played to Fords as they they never gave up and it could have gone either way until about 10 minutes from the end. It was a great game to watch for the neutral and was end-to-end for the full 90 minutes and although highly competitive was fairly fought out.
Well done Joey Roberts on an early season hat-trick.
Here are some other results from Premier league games played tonight. Check the league website for more details.

Well done to the lads for a good start yesterday with a 3-1 home win against Cheshire Lines. If you want to check what the other results in the division were click on the league website link in the bottom left hand column and you can view them from there. I have started to add some photos and other information to the site but it will take a few weeks to get it fully up and running. Keep checking the various sections for updates.
See you at Ford Motors on Tuesday night for another tough game.
