POSTED: February 04 2023 22:25:04. By Keith Long - U/21's Tornadoes December/January 2023

Following the Christmas/New Year break Beechfield United U/21's Tornadoes returned to action in the Bolton Bury and District League.

On Saturday 7th January 2023 Beechy were away to Boundary Park following the holiday period and suffered a narrow 2-1 defeat. Billy Wadeson netted the Tornadoes consolation goal and Joe Cox was voted Man of the Match.

After two postponements the Tornadoes travelled again this time to play unbeaten top of the table team Dukinfield Town. In a hard fought game Beechy who found themselves 3-1 down at half time played better after the break and didn't deserve to lose 5-3. On target with the goals were George Kamara (2) and Billy Wadeson.

*Due to another blast of arctic weather this was the only game played on Saturday 17th December within the Junior and Senior Section. Beechy were at home to Astley and Tyldesley Panthers and the Tornadoes secured the three points via an high scoring victory. Making a confident start Beechy were soon on the attack as they enjoyed a greater share of the ball in the opening ten minutes. A move between Andrew Woodward, Jack Davies and George Kamara resulted in a cross by Max O'Brien forcing a fisted clearance from the visitors keeper who a couple of minutes later saved an effort on target from Billy Wadeson. Astley Panthers No8 and No15 were involved in a few good counter-attacks and Tornadoes keeper Dylan Fletcher was forced to make a couple of vital saves.

Solid defending from Dan Delaney and Myles Thornton denied Astley the opening goal before Beechy slowly began to dictate the pace of the game. Max O'Brien fired the ball wide after a neat pass from Andrew Woodward then prior to the quarter-hour mark Billy Wadeson was on target when he gave the Tornadoes the lead. Beechy went 2-0 up after they were awarded a penalty and from the spot-kick George Kamara casully sidefooted the ball past the keeper. The Tornadoes made use of the roll-on-roll-off substitution rule when Ellis Kenny and Mouhamad Oufadelmboup replaced Myles Thornton and Andrew Woodward.

Astley Panthers continued to create a few positive counter-attacks but Beechy remained in control and Tom Cox caught the eye with some some great defending and attacking on the right wing. When the Tornadoes made another tactical change Samuel Oludoyi replaced Dan Delaney and Beechy increased their lead through Ellis Kenny who produced a decive finish from outside the area. Another effort on target by Max O'Brien was saved by the overworked visitors keeper then after the action switched to the other end of the pitch the Astley No11 forced a reflex save from Dylan Fletcher. Great link-up play between Dominic Lawton and Ellis Kenny won Beechy a corner and following a flag kick by the latter Mouhamad Oufadelmboup made it 4-0 with a powerful close range header.

A great piece of defending from Samuel Oludoyi denied the Astley No9 who was lurking around the penalty-spot the chance of a goal. The Tornadoes fifth goal was an own goal when a cross by George Kamara resulted in the ball ending up in the back of the net after it deflected off a visitors defender. To their credit Astley Panthers kept playing some decent football but Beechy always had the upper hand and led 6-0 when Ellis Kenny and Max O'Brien combined to set-up George Kamara who's combination of skill and a world class finish earned generous applause. Just before the referee ended an action packed first half the Astley keeper made a superb save following Tyler Winstanley's swerving volley.

Quickly into their stride in the second half the Tornadoes were rewarded with goal number seven via George Kamara who produced another stunning finish for his hat-trick. The match retained it's fast pace on the artificial surface and Beechy keeper Dylan Fletcher was in action again during a brief period of Panthers counter-attacking. Max O'Brien raced onto a crossfield pass from George Kamara and saw his low drive hit the post then Ellis Kenny suffered the same fate minutes later. After winning possession in midfield Andrew Woodward supplied the pass that led to the eighth goal scored by Max O'Brien from close range. Making more substitutions Beechy sent on Tom Cox and Tyler Winstanley in place of Max O'Brien and Myles Thornton.

Beechy continued to carve out chances galore and it was Tyler Winstanley who hammered home goal number nine from inside the area. Then the Tornadoes hit double figures thanks to Billy Wadeson who created the highlight of the game with an ourageous piece of skill when he beat four opponents. The Astley keeper produced a one-handed save following an effort by Jack Davies after a neat move involving Andrew Woodward and Dominic Lawton. The visitors got their deserved consolation goal just before Beechy added their eleventh goal courtesy of George Kamara and in the closing minutes Billy Wadeson completed his hat-trick and scoring.
