Beechfield United's in-form Under 11's Thunder (9v9) made it five games unbeaten following a 6-0 home win over Parkwyddn Juniors at Beech Farm Playing Fields.
*Thunder produced a stunning performance from start to finish and every player contributed with a superb individual display. The Beechy Boys had a enjoyed a good training session during the week and carried the hard work onto the pitch on Saturday morning. Beechy were also rewarded with another clean sheet and Jermaine Rose and Samuel Sulmataj are fastly becoming an impressive defensive partnership. Goalkeeper Leon Heathcote-Clare dealt confidently with every shot that came in his direction while Ajab Fakeeh who was given a free role received special praise from the Parkwyydn manager. Theo McNulty and Edris Mohammed controlled the midfield as did Ano Goora and Kristian Georgiev when they got their turn to shine. Ollie Sixsmith, Nattaniel Wojciak, Abdelmalik Zuway and Maddox Taylor were all superb on the wings. Goals for Thunder came via Abdelmalik, Ajab, Samuel and Edris.
* Beechy's youngest team the Under 7's Thunder welcomed Urmston Meadowside Predators to Beech Farm. Thunder lost this mini-soccer game after conceding three goals in the first half then two goals in the second period. During a ten minute spell after half time it looked as if Beechy might get back into the game but a couple of clear cut chances went begging. Thunders Man of the Match was Grayson Owen who at times single handly defended on his own with great determination.
*Celebrating a second successive victory plus a clean sheet were the Under 9's Tornadoes who were at home to Deans Youth Sports. Beechy won the game thanks to a fine all-round display and goals from Anika Wojciak and Crewe Reeves who was awarded the Tornadoes Best Player accolade.
*Also at home were the Under 9's Storm and they met their bogey team Longford Park Juniors who were winners of all previous three games between the teams last season. Despite dominating the match and creating enough chances Beechy failed to score for the first time this season. Every Storm player put in a real shift and typically in a game of this type one goal was enough to decide the outcome and it was Longford Park who got it. Receiving Beechy's Man of the Match award was Scott Ellis-Smith.
*Enjoying a narrow 3-2 victory were Beechy Under 13's Tornadoes who were away at Winton Warriors and in this Salford and Districts League Division 2 fixture both teams missed a penalty. A couple of goals from Radwan Fakeeh and a late header by Reece Smith were enough to give the Tornadoes the three points and move them up to fifth place in the league table. Both Oscar Mather and Josh Beddows provided assists for all three goals and following an excellent display as central defensive midfielder Sonny Barratt was voted Man of the Match.
*The Under 14's Hurricanes met local rivals Moorside Rangers U/13's Blue for a Friendly match and dominating the game throughout the Hurricanes secured a comfortable victory. Finlay Unsworth, Oliver Nangle, Jacob Revell, Oliver Dalton-Bunker, JJ Lowery and Man of the Match Sophiyulah Bakare scored the goals.
*In the Bolton Bury and District League the Under 16's Typhoon were away to Section D leaders North Walkden Hawks and on an awful pitch Beechy knew they face a tough eighty minutes. This was a game of high committment, few chances and lots of mistakes as the players struggled with the conditions underfoot. The result was always going to be decided by those mistakes and unfortunately a few more were made by Typhoon who lost the match 2-0. Returning to the Beechy team following illness and injury was Milonga Mututa who collected the Man of the Match award.
