*In action in the Players Cup Beechfield United Under 15's Lightning enjoyed a much needed 7-1 victory following their away game against Moss Bank Greens.

*An uneven pitch made it difficult for the Beechy players to get their passing game into gear but after dominating the first half Lightning held a 5-0 lead at the break. A few tactical changes happened in the second half but Beechy added two more goals plus having a penalty save while Moss Bank scored their consolation goal. In midfield Zane Davies was outstanding and controlled the game plus Cody Brady produced some excellent passing and workrate and these two players shared the Man of the Match award. Cherif Badjie, Cody Brady, Harry Backhouse and Jake Barrington fired home the goals in this Bolton Bury and District League cup tie.

*Bolton Bury and District League Section C leaders the Under 16's Storm were away to Bolton Lads & Girls Blue and started on the front foot putting pressure on the home team. Twice Harry Patterson went close before he opening the scoring when he cut inside and hammered the ball into the top corner of the net for 1-0. Storm kept Bolton Lads pinned in their own half but they wasted chances until Morgan Anthony netted Beechy's second goal with a great header following a corner. In the second half Bolton Lads briefly put Beechy under pressure and reduced the arrears though Storm eventually stretched their lead via Evan Hodson-Griffiths who made it 3-1. Harry Patterson scored goal number four then he completed his hat-trick and the scoring with another superb finish. Storm's Man of the Match was the excellent Harrison Davies.

*Following their latest high scoring home win Beechy Under 16's Tornadoes took over at the top of the Section D table. The Tornadoes beat Hindley Juniors 5-2 with Ryan Lewis, Louie Khali and Adam Wood getting the goals and Bradley Oliver receiving the Man of the Match award for displaying a great attitude throughout the game. This was a fantastic team display from Beechy who scored some quality goals and focused on playing good football plus showing real maturity when dealing with their challenging opponents.

*The Under 15's Typhoon received a bye into the next round of the Players Cup so a friendly match was arranged with Little Lever Juniors. The opposition were from a Division below Beechy in the BBDJFL but they belied their status and made Typhoon work hard for their 1-0 lead at half time courtesy of Jamie Withington. Typhoon's passing was top-class and once they had found their confidence Beechy ran out comfortable winners. Reece James netted a hat-trick, Will Bentham scored two goals and goalkeeper Peter Ellis who kept a clean sheet was named Beechy's Best Player. Also on target for Typhhon were Milonga Mututa, Sonny O'Brien and Daniel Hesketh.

*At home to Standish Panthers the Under 14's Hurricanes started this Section C fixture where they left off last week taking the game to their opponents. Dylan Walker and Kane Wood constantly terrorised the Standish defence and as a result the Hurricanes took a deserved lead. Dylan supplied the pass and Kane added the finish for the opening goal and not long after the two players combined again for Kane to put Beechy 2-0 up. Dylan Walker made it 3-0 before half time but despite being the dominant team the Hurricanes briefly lost their shape and intensity and Standish Panthers pulled a goal back. But Beechy were soon back on track and Tanatswa Chirwa refused to be beaten when he chased a Standish striker and put in an almighty tackle inside the area to win the ball. Kane Wood who shared the Man of the Match with Tanatswa Chirwa completed his hat-trick before the visitors responed with their second goal.

*Rewarded for a much improved performance were the Under 14's Storm who won 6-3 away at Winton Wanderers. Beechy took the lead through Michael Walsh after a superb defence splitting pass from Damian Darbyshire A corner taken by Michael Walsh led to James Cadwaladr via a bullet header putting Storm 2-0 up but Winton Wanderers reduced the arrears before the break. Beechy dominated the second half and Goalkeeper Callum Hanvey, Thomas Hawkins and Joshua Kilfoyle gave Storm the platform to play some of their best football of the season. Goalscorers for Beechy in the second half were James Cadwaladr, Joshua Kilfoyle, Andrew Ackernley and Rian Haines.

*After their BBDJFL Section A fixture had been cancelled the Under 13's Hurricanes managed to arrange a Friendly Match with Salford Storm Tornadoes and the teams produced a twelve goal thriller. Following a fairly even opening period Salford Storm took the lead via a solo goal from their tall and very quick striker. Having to deal with some heavy pressure the Hurricanes went 2-0 down when the ball took an awkward bounce and deflected off an unluckly Beechy defender and into the net. The Hurricanes got a goal back after a corner taken by Alfie Rostron hit the crossbar and an effort from Henry Errington was blocked but the ball was controlled by Sophiyulah Bakare and he fired it into the roof of the net from a seemingly impossible angle.

Beechy equalised when a long ball out of defence found Alfie Rostron on the halfway line and he delivered a superb pass over the top and after racing clear Joshua Whitehead held off a defenders late challenge before adding a brilliant finish. The Hurricanes briefly dominated the match but Salford Storm responded and regained the lead after a cross from the right wing was brilliantly cleared off the line by Owen Hogben but somehow a Storm player bundled the ball into the net. Straight from the restart Beechy were back on the attack and were back level when Thomas Robinson was in the right place to fire the ball home after a fine save by the Storm keeper.

Beechy then went 4-3 up after the referee made his easiest decision of the match when he awarded the Hurricanes a penalty for a foul on Joshua Whitehead who gave the keeper no chance with the resulting spot-kick. Matthew Cox started the move that led to Beechy taking a 5-3 lead when he angled the ball onto Thomas Robinson and he laid it off to Jamie Maher who's excellent cross was fired into the bottom corner of the net by Joshua Whitehead who completed his hat-trick. Completely against the run of play Salford Storm got a goal back after a melee inside the area saw the ball fall kindly to the hosts main striker and he hammered it past the unsighted Beechy keeper. This exciting encounter continued to produce some top-class soccer and after the Hurricanes defence appealed for a free kick the refree waved play on and a Salford Storm forward calmly back heeled the ball into the net to make it 5-5.

Briefly pinned back in their own half Beechy quickly bounced back and led 6-5 when Jamie Maher delivered another great cross and Joshua Whitehead set-up Oliver Nangle who added a cool finish at the back post. Another scrappy goal conceded by the Hurricanes gifted Salford Storm their equaliser for 6-6 and this frenetic end to end goal feast which either team could have won ended as a fair result. Receiving the Hurricanes Man of the Match award was Joshua Whitehead.

*Beechy Under 11's Storm (9v9) met AFC Burnden Park for the second successive Saturday and gained revenge after suffering defeat in the previous game. The teams were evenly matched while the Beechy Boys who were excellent ran their socks off plus they played some great football. Man of the Match Timothy Badewa and Roman Sandaji scored the goals for Storm who won a nine goal thriller. In the previous encounter Roman Sandaji fired home Beechy's consolation goal thanks to an assist by Connor O'Sullivan and following an outstanding display Storm deserved at least a draw.

*Playing away at Deans Youth Tigers the Under 10's Thunder earned themselves a confidence boosting score draw. In a closely contested game Deans Tigers opened the scoring then shortly after added a second goal. Beechy came out in the second half and ran and chased for every ball and creating an outstanding display in defence was Ollie Sixsmith who organised and tackled superbly in a high energy sixty minutes. Rewarded for a wonderful attacking performance was Man of the Match Jackson Humm who's two goals guaranteed Thunder a share of the spoils.

*In their home game with neighbours Moorside Rangers Yellows the in-form Under 10's Storm made a bright start in this Salford and District League fixture. The teams produced a super competitive contest and Beechy created several goalscoring opportunties after sone great attacking play. Robert Wagner, Thomas Brady and Oliver Cooper were heavily involved but a combination of solid Rangers defending and wasteful finishing meant Storm couldn't capitalise on a positive opening period. Rangers grew into the game and used a physical approach to control the flow of play and the visitors added a few more goals. Beechy always displayed great character and could easily have pulled one or two goals back but on this occasion it wasn't to be.

*AFC Urmston Meadowside were the Under 9's Tornadoes opponents at Beech Farm and Beechy's fast counter-attacks constantly tested the visitors who were very good defensively. The Tornadoes won the match and their last goal was a great team move started by keeper Harvey Pugh who passed the ball to Oliver Chambers and he carried it to the halfway line before giving it to Kai Barker. Keeping the move going Kai cut the ball back to Tyler Ackernley who sent a perfect pass to Daniel Badewa and he scored Beechy match winner with five minutes remaining. Kai Barker and Daniel Badewa were the goalscorers for Beechy who's Man of the Match was their star defender Sideque Eltomseneen.

*Producing another impressive performance were Beechy Under 7's Storm who were in action against Salford Storm Tornadoes. As they continue to improve with every game Storm's players have been practicing on building their moves by playing the ball out from the back. Harry Heathcote-Ciare produced his usual dangerous runs and was rewarded with a hat-trick while Oscar Pugh capped a solid display with a goal. Man of the Match went to Jacob Foster for his high quality all-round play.
