- Junior Section Match Details 24th/25th Nov 2018
Thanks to an excellent all-round performance Beechfield United Under 15's Sunday team made it seven Division 4 games unbeaten in the Timperley and District League. United were away to Wythenshawe Amateur Panthers and after leading 3-1 at half time were eventually rewarded with a 5-2 win. First half goals from Billy Wadeson who created the highlight of the match via a spectacular strike from the halfway line Fernley Davies and a header by Jack Brodie gave Beechy a healthy lead. Wythenshawe Amateurs scored again in the second half but both Charlie McGreevy and Mathew Bennett were on target for United who celebrated a decisive victory.
Goals from Fernley Davies and Jock Brodie plus an own goal made up the Under 15's Tornadoes tally in their Bolton Bury and District League Section D away game against FC Sharples. On Saturday morning Beechy who dominated the match for twenty minutes went 1-0 up then missed a penalty and relaxing their grip on the match found themselves trailing 3-1 at the break. But the Tornadoes produced a great display in the second half and shared the spoils with a 3-3 draw.
Playing twice within twenty four hours were Beechy Under 14's Storm who hit double figures in both Division 1 home games in the Salford and District League. Against Flixton Junior Hawks Man of the Match Ben Garlick (4) Adam Rothwell (2) Manu Mouanda, Archie Cooper, Bailey Lloyd and Finley Share fired home the goals in a 10-1 win. Then Archie Cooper (Hat-Trick) Man of the Match Adam Rothwell (2) Finley Share (2) Tom Cox, Ben Howard, Bailey Lloyd and Leo Handcock were the goal scorers when the Storm recorded an 11-0 victory over Manchester Maccabi Broughton.
In the North Bury Junior Football League the Under 14's Thunder were away to top of the Championship Division outfit Royton Town and Beechy gave their opponents a much tougher game than they probably expected. Facing a strong biting wind in the first half Thunder matched the league leaders with a terrific valiant display but as they struggled against the strength of the wind Beechy found it difficult to get out of their own half and conceding the opening goal were 1-0 down at half time. With the wind now in their favour Thunder stepped up the pace in the second half and made the breakthrough with an equalising goal by Jake O'Sullivan who scored via a neat finish. Prince Idusuyi was then on target to give Beechy the lead but there was to be no fairy tale ending as Royton Town levelled the score. Thunder's players had worked their socks off and secured a well earned point from a 2-2 draw.
Also facing top of the table opposition were the Under 14's Tornadoes who had a tough North Bury Junior Football League Division 2 away fixture at Shawclough Rangers. Two goals for Andrew Woodward plus a penalty scored by Max Chidgey were scant reward for the Tornadoes who suffered a heavy defeat.
For their latest Division 2 game the Under 13's Tornadoes made the short journey to play Barr Hill Aces. Producing a good work rate throughout the first half the Tornadoes after going a goal down deserved their share of a 1-1 half time score line. During the second period Beechy didn't equal their high standards of the first thirty five minutes and conceding four goals in quick succession eventually lost the match 5-1. Bradley Oliver scored the Tornadoes consolation goal after being set-up by Rafael Silviera who alongside Xander Effio produced excellent performances and both players shared the Man of the Match award.
The Under 13's Storm made it three games unbeaten in the Bolton Bury and District League following a 3-3 draw with Blackrod AFC. At Stott Lane Beechy were punished for a slow start when they gifted Blackrod the lead via a sloppy goal. A couple of chances were on offer before Tawonga Ogunleye was on target when he equalised with a good accurate finish. Finally Storm got a grip on the game and put real pressure on their opponents but Blackrod counter-attacked and regained the lead but just before half time Beechy won a corner and were back level after Jayden Okoli scored to make it 2-2. In the second half Storm forced some heavy defending from Blackrod for long periods and following another corner took the lead through Ben Delaney. If Beechy could have got a fourth goal they would have been guaranteed victory but it was Blackrod who scored again and this Section C contest ended all square. Man of the Match was Rafael Ceita.
Reece James gave the Under 12's Typhoon (9v9) the lead in their Yellow Group home game against Salford Lads Club. Unfortunately Beechy were intimidated by some of Salford's bigger players and lost 3-1 after conceding three soft goals. Typhoon's Man of the Match was Harry Davies who kept a cool head as he battled tirelessly in his defensive position.
Also playing at home were Beechy Under 12's Lightning (9v9) and in this Division 3 match United entertained Prestwich Dragons at Beech Farm. Jake Barrington (2) Daniel Williams, Zane Davies and David Olidoy were Lightning's goal scorers in their 5-1 victory. Matthew Corry received the Star Player award.
There was a much improved performance by the Under 11's Storm (9v9) and in the Yellow Group Beechy were at home to neighbours Moorside Rangers Green but lost by the odd goal in eleven. Storm started well straight from the kick off but just couldn't find an equaliser in the latter stages. James Cadwaladr got a hat-trick and was Man of the Match plus there were two goals for Oliver Cowley.
Having been promoted to the Red Group the Under 11's Tornadoes (9v9) faced a new challenge in the Salford and District League. Away at Old Trafford Juniors the Tornadoes secured a hard fought victory that extended their unbeaten run to nine league and cup games. In an end to end encounter Beechy went a goal up in the 10th minute and the Tornadoes keeper Freddie Wardle was called into action to make a couple of great saves to help maintain the lead. Two goals from Oliver Percival and one each by Finley Fairhurst and Michael Walsh gave Beechy a slender lead at the interval. The action continued to flow from end to end throughout the second half with both teams creating chances galore. Joel Thorndyke via a shot that saw the ball drop into the net under the crossbar and Man of the Match Finley Fairhurst's sublime finish gave the Tornadoes a substantial four goal advantage but two more goals for Old Trafford made it a nervy last ten minutes for the Beechy boys.
The Under 10's Lightning squad were faced with a tough assignment against Abraham Moss in the Challenge Tournament. Play was continually moving from end to end and though Beechy lost the tie it could have ended with a different result had Lightning added the finish to some decent chances. All out attack from Abraham Moss produced five goals scored from outside the area while Enzo Patrick netted Beechy's only goal. Sharing the Man of the Match award were Presley Smith and Matthew Elliott for their outstanding individual performances.
Another Beechy Under 10's team the Tornadoes were also involved in the Challenge Tournament and despite an all-round battling display in the home game with Ladybridge Wolves the Tornadoes suffered a defeat. Beechy's two goals came via Man of the Match Mycah Camilleri and Charlie Backhouse.
Deenraj Singh and Brodie Mundy got the goals for the Under 9's Lightning in their Sunday Blue Group away fixture with Manchester Maccabi Lions. The teams shared four goals but in what turned out to be an amazing game of football either team could have snatched victory. Beechy's defensive trio of Man of the Match Kyle Tandy, Kaylon Salisbury and Isaac Moore produced highly impressive displays.
The in-house Under 9's Yellow Group derby game between Beechy's Tornadoes and Thunder ended with a win for the Tornadoes. Two goals apiece for Josh Beddows and Stewart Kay and one each by Logan McFeely and Man of the Match Eddie McDonagh his first for the team fired the Tornadoes to victory. Thunder played really well in the first half and a great goal from Harry Norcross guaranteed that honours were even at the break. A solid overall performance by defender Ryan Vu earned him Thunder's Best Player award.
Playing away against Deans Youth Sports the Under 7's were involved in a fourteen goal thriller. Beechy got off to a dreadful start conceding three early goals before reducing the arrears through Daniel Wharton. For the Under 7's good defending was in short supply with the exception of Player of the Match Sophie Price. Working tirelessly in midfield was Patrick Docherty and he helped set-up other Beechy goals scored by Jacob Wood and Oliver Cooper who was rewarded with a hat-trick.
