On Tuesday 14th May 2019 Beechfield United Under 14's Tornadoes played their penultimate Division 2 fixture of the season. In the North Bury Junior League Beechy were away to Elton and Walshaw Lions and though the Tornadoes produced a spirited performance they suffered a 7-2 defeat. A few crude tackles on some of the Tornadoes players went unpunished but displaying great character Beechy responded with goals by Tom Critchley and James Donohue. The teams Man of the Match award went to Lucas Madden.
Twenty four hours later the Under 14's Storm had an end of season evening fixture when they met Fives Athletic at Littleton Road. Taking their Division 1 unbeaten run in the Salford and Districts League to ten games Beechy were guaranteed another three points thanks to a 5-1 victory. Man of the Match Adam Rothwell (2) Samuel Oludoyi, Ben Garlick and Joe Newton scored the goals.
Despite playing some great football and coming back from 2-0 down at half time against Deans Sports in the Supplementary Cup D final Beechy Under 13's Tornadoes were eventually presented with the runners-up trophy after they lost the match 5-2. In the first ten minutes of the second half the Tornadoes were back in the game with two goals from Rafael Silviera who twice fired the ball over the head of the Deans keeper. But due to an unfortunate penalty decision Beechy found themselves trailing 4-2 and Deans made sure of victory with a fifth goal five minutes from the end. Whilst they were obviously disappointed the Tornadoes players showed great spirit and should be very proud of their performance both on an off the pitch. (Match Played 11/5/2019)
