Sat 30 Aug 2014 - Marshalls Res 0 Upton Res 3 - scorers Dale Higham, Steve Millington Andy Henry - a great result which puts the reserves into 3rd place in the league.

Wed 3 Sep 2014 - Capenhurst Villa Res 1 Upton Res 2 - scorers Steve Millington, Chris Coughlin. Upton started the better of the two sides, but failed to score in the opening minutes. Gradually Capenhurst improved and took the lead before half-time. Eventually in an even second half Upton equalised somewhat fortunately when Steve Millington scored a simple tap in having robbed the Capenhurst keeper of a ball, which he appeared to have secured in his outstretched arms diving full length .Capenhurst were soon awarded a penalty, but Chris Hickling saved brilliantly diving to his right. This save was to become decisive. With 10 minutes to full time, Chris Coughlin, who with James Antrobus had both been outstanding in defence, scored the winning goal with a header from a set piece. The final minutes saw Capenhurst push forward but fail to equalise.

Sat 6 Sep 2014 - Crossways 1 Upton Res 6 - scorers Steve Millington (2), Gary Handley (2), Matty Ingle and Dale Higham - our reserves had an opportunity to try out some new players as the difference between Chester and West Cheshire certainly showed as Upton took a deserved 3 - 1 lead at half time. The second half had no further substance until the last 10 minutes when  Upton moved up a gear and scored three more goals to win 6 - 1.

Sat 13 Sep 2014 - Bootle Res 3 Upton Res 2 - scorers James Antrobus, Gary Handley. A young Bootle side opened the first half  outpacing the Res and scored an opening goal on 10 minutes. On 20 minutes an attack down the absent left side of the Upton defence led to a cross and a headed goal. For the remainder of the first half the Reserves just managed to contain Bootle, but achieved little in attack. Five minutes into the second half another attack down the Upton left resulted in a third goal and more seemed likely. Then 10 minutes into the second half the Reserves win a penalty only for the keeper to save. Within seconds another penalty is awarded to the Reserves but the shot is wide. Undeterred by these missed penalties Upton for the first time in the match gain the upper hand and are awarded a third penalty.  James Antrobus  makes no mistake. With 5 minutes to go Alan Richardson chases what appeared a lost cause and lobs to Gary Handley who heads home. A determined effort in the final minutes to gain an unlikely draw fails. Hickling, Joinson, Harwood, Antrobus, Hughes, Richardson, Rowlands, Henry, Handley, Millington, Higham. Subs; Jones, Peacock, Ingle
