Well here we are, after 5 years growing this team from a few 7 year old kids. losing a few and gaining more along the way. And with only a couple left in the squad from the beginning we have our final competitive match on Beechfarm. And what better way to finish than against our old enemy Swinton..W

Today's game against Prestwich tigers is always a tough game and an exciting one and it didn't disappoint. With the coaches all away Ben and Scott took the reigns for the game. Trying a different formation due to injury to goal keeper woody, Jake went in goal first half and Joel for the second they

Another cup game and another tricky tie.. After 2 defeats in 2 games so far we decided to just go for it. Nothing to lose according to our tactical genius Mr Chase, and to be fair it really worked.

No scheduled fixture this week so we arranged a friendly with a new side.. We didn't know what to expect and as it was on astro too who knows what could happen..From the start we looked good and the shape of the team was the best i've seen for a while. The back 3 of Leo,Liam and Kyle work so well to

First of our cup games after a couple of postponements.Back at the lovely home of Swinton and their nice flat pitch.


READ MORE ... March 03 2019 16:15:47. By Nathan Hawthorne - Cadishead blacks away (league)

Back at Cadishead for the 2nd week running to face the newly formed team. With no wins from 7 games we expected a few goals against them so set out with an attacking formation from the start. The opposition were more organised than we thought and had a couple of decent players, and it took us a whil


READ MORE ... February 28 2019 21:20:41. By Nathan Hawthorne - Cadishead red away (league)

We started with an attacking formation, playing just Leo and Liam in front of Woody. It took us a while to find our rhythm but once we did some of the football was great. Dan was having plenty of the ball and it was him who opened the scoring. David and Joel who had both come on after being late due

Deans bottom of the league, easy 3 points we thought. But after a Div 1 team folded Deans got 4 new players. ( must of all been defenders and a keeper).

Our home fixture with Swinton was moved to their pitch due to weather. Luckily we managed to swerve playing on Astro but instead found a pitch with a 40% gradient. We won the toss and decided to attack up the slope first half hoping it would benefit 2nd half.. The game was quite even and a real batt


READ MORE ... January 15 2019 17:14:56. By Nathan Hawthorne - Ladybridge away (League)

First game back after the Christmas break, the game was played on 4G and straight away that had us concerned as our record on that surface is abysmal.. Sure enough we were proven right, some of the lads looked like they were still on holiday.. We just never got going, the passing was off, we were la


READ MORE ... January 15 2019 16:44:30. By Nathan Hawthorne - Winton home (league)

A very tough fixture, our squad was down to the bare bones through lads being away and a couple of injuries. Winton are unbeaten in the league and have a big squad of players, in windy conditions and playing into the slope the first half was always going to be very difficult.. We faced a lot of pres

Lots of rain meant this fixture was pushed to a 4G pitch. Another very tricky opponent who made us work hard for a victory last time out.. We actually started the game off quite well and were knocking the ball about with confidence. Some good work from David down the when he squared the ball for Jak


READ MORE ... December 03 2018 15:19:52. By Nathan Hawthorne - Boothstown home (league)

A big match today and a chance to make right the poor performance and result from our first game and only loss of the season.. We emphasised how important it was to get a good start but by the looks of it so did Boothstown. To be fair they were all over us for 10/15 mins and our midfield were gettin


READ MORE ... November 27 2018 04:04:21. By Nathan Hawthorne - Prestwich Dragons (league)

After last weeks shenanigans, today was more about playing as a team and encouraging each other.. Trying to get that team spirit back. I think we're trying to find that balance of not being too soft but also not going too far. The first half wasn't a great spectacle, Beechy having more of the play a


READ MORE ... November 19 2018 20:45:49. By Nathan Hawthorne - Urmston @home (friendly)

A nice test for us against a new opponent. We knew nothing about Urmston but then they knew nothing about us.. We started off on the front foot, and it was us who looked the higher league team.. Dan started the game great and was causing problems down the right with Jake looking dangerous on the lef


READ MORE ... November 10 2018 22:44:16. By Nathan Hawthorne - Winton blues (league)

Back to league action and we stressed to the team we needed to start off matches better, and with Jake earning a starting place after last week's heroics it wasn't long before he was back on the scoresheet. The lively Matthew has been growing more into his new midfield role every week, and after win


READ MORE ... November 03 2018 15:15:08. By Nathan Hawthorne - Winton Gladiators (cup)

A tough draw for us in the challenge cup, Winton had won every game so far this season so we had to be on our game.. Unfortunately we weren't, especially in the first 15 mins. Winton raced in to a 2 goal lead with some lively play, but we didn't help ourselves defensively. Not strong enough in the t


READ MORE ... October 29 2018 21:04:00. By Nathan Hawthorne - Prestwich Tigers (home)

This was an anticipated tough fixture as Tigers had won their last 5 matches. The first half proved us right as there wasn't much between the teams. Early on we looked in control and took the lead after Zane finished at the far post to get his first for the season. But soon after a bit of hesitancy

Looking to build on last week's performance we came accross familiar opponents.. The game started off quite even and it was difficult for us early on as we had to attack into a very bright sunshine, the fact we managed to keep Prestwich out was due to some brilliant defending by our trusted back 3 a

It's been a while since we've faced ladybridge so we were unsure of their level.. Although we'd had plenty of rain and a match before us the pitch was in good condition...

Restricted to 8 a side and 25mins each way, we had a big squad and plenty of rotation to give everyone plenty of game time.

A nice evening for a friendly against an old foe. It's been a while since we've played Winton so didn't know what to expect..

After some difficult fixtures recently it's nice to get a familiar face.


READ MORE ... May 09 2018 02:13:52. By Nathan Hawthorne - Maccabi away

So we lined up against maccabi, but their line up looked slightly different from last time.. Most notably one player who stood out from everyone else on the pitch. Definitely too good for this level.

Not really the fixture we wanted after last week, but this is the level we're at now so we need to get used to it..


READ MORE ... April 23 2018 20:55:42. By Nathan Hawthorne - De La Salle (cup)

Not much to say about this.. The opposition started of really well and we were on the back foot straight from the start. 2-0 down inside 10 mins and on top of that we lost our captain to injury.. Will came on and to be honest we looked a bit more solid, although Della seemed to be a yard faster than

So we're back in action against another new opponent. Following our unlucky result in the last match we needed a win to stay in the cup.


READ MORE ... March 25 2018 23:04:12. By Nathan Hawthorne - Derby Day

So here we are, the game we've been waiting for.. After our recent good form this was the game where we would find out how far we had come. The pitch was looking good and there was a decent crowd supporting both teams. It just felt like a big game.

We got our sup cup campaign underway against De la salle who we hadn't faced before.. It was a bitter cold morning, the wind was up and snow was in the air.. First half De la had the wind behind them and also the slope of the pitch and in the first minute after we gave away a cheap corner they were

Back in league action we faced Prestwich tigers away. We hadn't played these for a while but as we found out they are one of the better teams at this level. Apologies if these details aren't exact but I was always forget I need to do this, maybe I should start taking notes haha.


READ MORE ... February 05 2018 06:46:44. By Nathan Hawthorne - Deans (friendly)

Another cold and wet Saturday morning, but that didn't stop us getting a great turnout for the team. As our game had been cancelled earlier in the week we had a chance to book a 3G pitch early and thanks to Jonah for organising it.

So the rain held off just enough but the pitch wasn't great. Prestwich had beaten us recently in the cup and denied us a place in the next round so plenty of motivation for the team.

A good test for the team after losing against Winton a couple of weeks earlier.. After controlling the start we fell behind to there first attack, but we quickly got back in the game with 2 well taken goals from Joel. Another goal from Zane with a cool finish and one for Winton made it 3-2 at half t

Sticking with our 3-2-3 formation we started positively and kept our shape well, some good football & possesion saw us take an early lead. A defence splitting pass put Joel through on goal and he slid it past the keeper for his first goal. More good play followed and the defence never looked in dang
