St Margaret's Old Boys' Football Club have made an excellent start to their first season, recording six wins from seven (it should be 8 wins from 9, but sadly two teams have had to drop out) in the league to date. After scoring 43 goals in 8 pre-season games, they opened the season with a 4-1 victory, since then the team has gone from strength to strength.
The Old Boys continued their winning form with a 3-2 victory over East Villa with the goals scored by Danny, Chris and Ryan. This put the team at the top of the table and coincided with a four page article in the Liverpool Echo's football section.
Expectations are still on the rise, and the good form continued with 1-0 (Helsby), 4-2 (Helsby, McMahon 2, Bradley), 4-2 (Bradley 4) and 3-0 (Bradley, McGrail, Towner) victories. This took their winning streak to 11 games.
In October, the club was presented the FA Charter Standard Award for offering outstanding opportunities to young people through football; a very proud moment for the club. The Club also won £140.00 off Radio City on “Pay your Bills”
In March 2012; competing in the Sunday Youth Divisional Cup 1st Round, the team managed to turn around a 4-3 first leg deficit against AFC Liverpool to win 6-5 AET in the 2nd Leg, meaning it was 9-9 on aggregate; the game went to Penalties.
