- Junior Section Match Details 14th/15th Sept 2019
Beechfield United Under 17's Tornadoes secured a convincing victory in the Bolton Bury and District League when they beat Winton Juniors 7-0 at Stott Lane and following their first two fixtures Beechy found themselves top of the Section A table.
Playing throughout with just eleven players the Tornadoes dominated the game and were 5-0 up at half time. The second half was less eventful and though Winton played much better Beechy remained in control and added two more goals. Jeanny Le Blanc with a second successive hat trick, two goals from Ademola Olusanya plus one by Jacob Wilson and an own goal made up United's tally.
Also in action on Saturday morning in the Bolton Bury and District League Beechy Under 16's Tornadoes faced a tough task in their Section D away game with FC Bury Bulldogs. As they struggled to get a foothold in the match the Tornadoes only had nine fit players for the second half and eventually suffered a 7-0 defeat. Man of the Match was Cael Malloy.
United's Under 16's Sunday team lost 2-1 following their Timperley and District League Division 3 away fixture at Unicorn Athletic. Despite injuries to two players within the opening five minutes Beechy gave a battling display. Jono Devine received the Man of the Match award and Thomas Anderton scored the teams consolation goal.
On the 3G Astroturf Pitch at Salford Sports Village Beechy Under 15's Thunder met local rivals Barr Hill Hearts in the North Bury Junior League. In this Championship Division home game in the first half for the most part Thunder kept the game a contest despite having less possession. During the first twenty minutes both teams created just a few chances but it was Barr Hill who eventually opened the scoring. Some poor defending was to play a big part for Thunder and a ball played in from the left flank should have been dealt with but it wasn't cleared efficiently enough and found it's way into the back of the Beechy net. Thunder did create two decent chances but the finishing touch was missing and in the second half got caught napping straight away and found themselves 3-0 down within the first two minutes. With thirty minutes left on the clock a through ball which the keeper failed to deal with was tucked away to put Barr Hill 4-0 up and that's how it finished. A below-par performance by Thunder plus a few mistakes made it an easy day out for Barr Hill but one bright note for Thunder was the good midfield display from Man of the Match Harvey Walker.
Before the start of their Section C home game with Bury Vipers the Under 14's Storm lost two players through injury and Beechy knew they were in for a hard seventy minutes. Bury Vipers played some good football and took the lead with a 35yard chip past the keeper and Storm couldn't get going until an effort by Tawonga Chirwa who had Beechy's best chance hit the crossbar. Bury Vipers were still 1-0 up at the break but Storm came out in the second half and taking the game to their opponents equalised via a great finish from Harry Patterson. The match became more evenly balanced with both teams going close to finding another goal but a mistake by Beechy was punished when Bury Vipers regained the lead. Storm had a couple of chances before Bury Vipers scored again with a shot from 35yards that eventually secured the visitors a 3-1 victory. Beechy need to battle more in midfield and be more consistent. Following his commanding performance Man of the Match was Luke Bedforth who didn't deserve to be on the losing side.
Beechy Under 13's Lightning from Division 3 in the Salford and Districts League lost 5-2 at home to Division 1 outfit De La Salle in the Challenge Cup. Lightning's opponents were flattered by the score line and several missed chances cost Beechy dearly. Man of the Match Jake Barrington and David Olidoy did hit the target with a goal apiece.
The Under 13's Typhoon boys put in a determined performance against a quality Parkwyddn Predators side and limited the visitors to a 5-0 winning result. In this Challenge Cup game Will Bentham pipped the rest of Typhoon's defence to the Man of the Match award.
After travelling to play Cadishead Town in the Challenge Cup the Under 12's Hurricanes (9v9) went goal crazy in a totally one-side contest. The whole team shared the Man of the Match award and on target with the goals were Dylan Walker (6) Rian Haines (2) William Schofield (2) Alfie Gridlestone (2) Lewis Royle (2) and Kane Wood.
Also hitting double figures against Cadishead Town were the Under 12's Storm (9v9) who had two games in two days. On Thursday evening in a runaway victory Oliver Cowley (3) Andrew Ackernley (3) Michael Walsh (2) Noah Connor, George Healey, Man of the Match Tommy Hawkins, Edward Lucas, Joshua Kilfoyle plus a quick fire second half hat trick from goalkeeper James Cadwaladr got the goals. Then on Saturday playing opponents from a Division above Storm were ready for a tough game with Swinton Lions. This Challenge Cup tie was switched to Beech Farm but a solid all-round display and goals from Oliver Cowley (second successive hat-trick) and Damian Darbyshire booked Storm a place in the next round of the competition. Joshua Kilfoyle and Saul Tagoe shared the Man of the Match award.
Jake Meadows was voted the Under 11's Tornadoes Man of the Match following their 9v9 Red Group away game against Monton Sports. Despite a gutsy display Beechy lost the match and despite their efforts were unable to score a consolation goal.
In the Under 10's Yellow Group Beechy Lightning (9v9) lost their away fixture with Stretford Vic's Albion. After creating numerous chances Lightning just couldn't put the ball in the net and on four occasions both post and crossbar denied Beechy a goal. Named Lightning's Best Player was Kaylon Salisbury.
Suffering another difficult first half were the Under 10's Tornadoes who met Swinton Lions in the Blue Group. In this home game that included seventeen goals mistakes by Beechy players were punished by the Lions who held a five goal lead at break. Following a good half time team talk Beechy delivered a much improved display in the second half and there were some very good goals plus a much better attitude. Goal scorers for the Tornadoes were Man of the Match Josh Beddows (hat- trick) Stewart Kay, Martin Cholakov and Logan McFeely.
There was a scrappy performance from Beechy Under 9's Storm in their Red Group home game against FC Bridgwater Raiders. It was a case of having to dig in and work hard for Storm without creating too many chances to play good football. Two goals by Conner O'Sullivan and one from Ryden Coward secured a Beechy victory despite the scrappy display.
Goals galore were on the menu in the Under 8's Storm versus Salford Storm friendly match. In the first ten minutes Beechy played some brilliant football and were five goals ahead at half time. Four recent new signings got some decent playing time and Storm were winners of this game that produced eighteen goals. Overall this was a solid team performance and goals for Beechy came courtesy of Oliver Cooper(8) Man of the Match Aiden Gradwell, Thomas Brady and Jake Wood.
