- United Gain Three Points Then Lose Them
On Saturday Morning 15th May 2021 Beechy's Senior Team travelled to play Eastlands needing three crucial points to maintain their pursuit of the Division 1 title.
Following a dominant display United won the match 4-1 but only recently Eastlands have resigned from the Manchester Saturday Morning League and with their record expunged Beechy have been deducted the three points. Starting the game in full control United took a deserved lead on the quarter-hour mark thanks to a well worked team goal finished off by striker Danny Alder. But in typical fashion Beechy conceded a soft goal from a free kick though United maintained their good overall performance and soon regained the lead when the leagues top scorer Max Leonard added a fine finish after a great through ball from Wes Pierce.
In the second half Beechy's performance go even better and they went 3-1 up when Max Leonard was on target again. As they continued to search for more goals United were rewarded with a fourth goal via Danny Alder who netted his second of the game with a wonderful volley from twenty five yards. Beechy controlled the match throughout the remainder of the second half and earned themselves what they thought at the time to be an important 4-1 victory.
