This photo was after the excellent win over Liverpool County Premier League Stoneycroft. South Reserves were in the I Zingari Combination Division One and had a mix of youth and experience producing one of the best ever displays by the Reserves who had all but won the game by half time leading 5- 1 (after 36 minutes!). South lost in the Liverpool County FA Junior Cup Final 1-0 to Speke side, Saint Ambrose.
