The Under nines Red lost 3-2 to Brierfield Celtic Red
United were on the backfoot from the off with Celtic taking a two-goal lead into the interval.
However they finally got going after the break with Owen Hodgson and Xander Braysford linking up well together in midfield and they made an instant impact.
Rishton’s first goal came when Evan O’Carroll and Kyle Essery found Braysford who guided the ball past the keeper.
With renewed vigour Rishton were in control and Braysford scored a second with a 20-yard volley. However Rishton then conceded a cheap third to miss out. MOTM was Kyle Essery.

In fact it was goalie Lewis Ainscough, who had been a virtual spectator last week, who was a deserved MOTM and he almost single-handedly kept United in the game with a string of fine saves in the second half.
Opposition MOTM was Sam Malone while Manager’s MOTM was Lewis Ainscough.
The Under nines on Saturday lost 2-0 to Wilpshire Wanderers Red. Chances at either end were few and far between but Wilpshire’s first goal came halfway into the first half when a Rishton player handled the ball in the penalty area. Ben Bleasdale dived the right way but couldn’t prevent the ball going in.
Wanderers got another but Alex Jennings deserves credit for another battling defensive display, as does Callum Monahan who filled in at centre back rather than his usual midfield position.
The Under 12s won 6-2 at Huncoat. Rishton stormed to an early lead with a penalty kick converted by Keenan O’Carroll.
By the fourth minute they were 2-0 up thanks to a cracking finish from Jamie Maxwell.
And it was soon three when Huncoat failed to deal with a corner kick and Nathan Sharrock was on hand to crack a left foot shot in.
Rishton were awarded another penalty on the 18 minutes but Liam Clough hit it straight at the keeper.
This seemed to wake Huncoat up and they got one back before Clough made up for his penalty miss and took the score to 4-1.
Maxwell got a second before the half-time whistle to go in 5-1 ahead at the break.
Huncoat got their second after the interval as Rishton switched off although there was still time for United’s Andrew Noblet fto finish off the scoring.
Referee’s MOTM was Liam Clough.
The Under 15s won 8-0 against Ossie Rangers.
The first goal came from Jamie Taylor who outpaced the Ossie defence to expertly shoot home from a narrow angle.
The second goal came after the ball was worked down the right wing and pulled back from the bye line to be clinically finished by Kieran Royal.
At this point Ossie must have been wondering what they were doing wrong, as they were still battling for everything.
Rishton continued to struggle to play any good football but still created chances.
It was from one of these that the ball again ended up in the back of the net for number three - Jamie Taylor claiming the honours.
The second half started with Rishton improving slightly but keeper Josh Higham had to save a one-on-one.
Rishton went on from there to finish off strongly. Ollie Crabtree turned well in the box to fire into the roof of the net for number four.
This was followed by an Adam Aspinall goal from out by the corner flag while Brad Campbell added number six with a clinical finish into the bottom corner from the edge of the box.
Dylan Cross then got his name on the scoresheet, scoring from close in after Lewis Hall cut the ball back to him.
The final goal came from Adam Aspinall when he hit a long range effort which the keeper spilled into his own net.
The scoreline flattered Rishton, but they did take their chances well.
Referee’s MOTM award went to Kieran Royal.
The Under 16s were 4-1 victors over Borrowdale United.
Rishton began kicking down the slope but it was Borrowdale who attacked strongly.

From the kick off, Elliot Kinder took the ball past two defenders and hit a great shot past the keeper to put Rishton ahead.
The game could have gone either way before another Borrowdale attack was stopped by Damion Wheatcroft and the ball went forward to Savage to calmly score to make it 3-1.
And keeper Avison threw a quick ball up the wing and Kinder took it up field, found McNulty who finished well for a final score of 4-1.
