- Junior Section Match Details 19th/20th Nov 16
A combination of Heavy Rain, Sleet and Snow forced the postponements of all but three fixtures scheduled for Saturday/Sunday 19th & 20th November 2016. The games that did go ahead involved the Under 9's Tornadoes, Under 10's Hurricanes, Under 12's Tornadoes.
There was a brilliant win for Beechfield United Under 9's Tornadoes in the Challenge Tournament. In the away game at Flixton Junior Rhinos all the Tornadoes players were rewarded for a performance full of great passing and excellent movement off the ball and the highlights of the match were hat tricks for both Edward Hughes and Finley Fairhurst. Owen Hogben netted two goals plus there was a goal apiece for Oliver Percival, Joel Thorndyke and goalkeeper Freddie Wardle.
In the Bolton Bury and District League the Dragons Division match between Beechy Under 10's Hurricanes and Howfen Blues produced an amazing total of twenty one goals. At one stage the Hurricanes who eventually lost the game found themselves trailing their opponents by six goals but the Beechy lads fought back superbly and deserved at least a draw. Goalscorers were Man of the Match Josh Clough, Georgi Georgiev and Dominic Roaden.
At Salford Sports Village the Under 12's Tornadoes played Manchester Maccabi Vipers on a 3G Astroturf Pitch. This Division 3 9v9 fixture was played on Sunday PM and the Tornadoes suffered a 6-2 defeat. Leading marksman Alan Kay and Callum Looby scored the goals but there was no Man of the Match Award handed out.
