- Junior Section Match Details 9th to 15th June
Away to Moorside Rangers Reds on 9th June 2021 Beechy Under 13's Tornadoes went a goal down in this Salford and Districts League Division 2 fixture but recovered to lead 3-1 at half time.
Rangers made it 3-2 from the penalty spot then found an equaliser before they secured a 4-3 victory in the last five minutes. The Tornadoes who were denied a clear-cut penalty scored goals via Farrell Williams-Smith (2) and Jack Duff. Voted Beechy's Best Player was Zach Newns.
In their Bolton Bury and District Junior League Section D away game with FC Bridgewater a solid display in the first half by the Under 15's Tornadoes earned them a 2-1 lead but the hosts bounced back to go 3-2 up at half time. In the second half FC Bridgwater kept the Tornadoes under pressure and added a fourth goal to guarantee themselves the victory. The Beechy boys continued to play some good football throughout the second period and displayed a greater physical presence which made a huge difference. Goals for the Tornadoes came via Jake Curry after three minutes and Jack Fitton with a free kick from the halfway line. Jack Fitton was voted Man of the Match following his commanding performance as captain and in defence.
Goals from David Olidoy (2) Cherif Badjie (2) George Young (2) Charlie Harris and Daniel Williams guaranteed the Under 14's Lightning an 8-0 home win over Prestwich Dragons. The three points kept Beechy in third place in the Salford and Districts League Division 2 table.
Playing their final BBDJFL fixture of the season were the Under 13's Hurricanes who lost 8-4 at home to Standish Panthers. Against a technically superior team Beechy gifted their opponents several goal scoring opportunities and taking advantage the visitors led 6-1 at half time. During the break the Hurricanes players were given simple instructions, forget the first half, play for pride and win the second half and the Beechy boys did exactly that. Kane Wood and Dylan Walker were both on target with a brace and Man of the Match for battling non-stop and keeping things simple was Marcelo Brazao-Agapito. Beechy finished as runners-up in Section D so it's congratulations to all the Hurricanes players and Manager Kennedy Chirwa following their first season in the league.
An understrength Under 12's Lightning (9v9) lost their last SDJFL Division 3 game of the season to a much improved Salford Lads Club. Making a bright start Beechy created a number of decent chances but just couldn't add the finish and Lads Club took control going 3-0 up at the break. Lightning struggled with the physical nature of the game plus having to deal with the air temperature and the lack of substitutes Beechy conceded two more goals. Despite battling to the end Lightning were unable to match the fitness of their opponents but on another day the result would have been different.
On Sunday morning in their Section D away game with Breightmet United Hawks the Under 14's Typhoon recovered from a calamitous start when they conceded the opening goal following the hots very first attack. Beechy who secured a comfortable win arrived late for the match after being supplied with the wrong pitch location. Cole Winstanley and Joseph Bothamley were were late arrivals made an immediate impact and the team looking more balanced started to produce some very good football. It was Jamie Withington who scored Typhoon's equalising goal plus there were two goals for Man of the Match Ryan Sullivan both from corners and though Beechy should have scored more goals were happy with their 3-1 win.
Typhoon were away again on Tuesday 15th June when they travelled to play Moss Bank Juniors and secured a 7-1 victory. In beautiful evening sunshine Beechy took the lead through Daniel Hesketh who had the ball in the net again but this effort was ruled out for offside. Reece James hammered home Typhoon's second goal and Beechy started to make the ball do the work as they totally dominated the contest. Will Bentham got on the scoresheet with goal number three and he could have had more goals while Jamie Withington and Igor Osarinmwain put Typhoon 5-0 up at half time. Moss Bank reduced the arrears at the start of the second half then Igor Osarinmwain who somehow missed out on an hat-trick netted the sixth goal. Central defender Milonga Mututa completed the scoring while Beechy keeper Peter Ellis enjoyed a centre forward cameo and was unlucky not to get a goal when his effort hit the post. Joseph Bothamley was Man of the Match. This was Typhoon's third successive victory and their fifth in the previous six games.
There was no official Salford and Districts League fixture for Beechy Under 8's Tornadoes so a Friendly Match was arranged against Moorside Rangers Yellows. A few new players made their debut for the Tornadoes and playing some fantastic football Beechy were a joy to watch. To maintain possession the Tornadoes played the right way by passing the ball out from the back and down the wings which produced positive results. On target for Beechy who won the game were Man of the Match Oliver Poshec, Kai Barker, Daniel Badewa, and Jack Hoaston.
