- Junior Section Match Details 11th/12th Nov 2017
Extending their unbeaten run to four games in the Salford and District League were Beechfield United Under 16's Storm. At home to Old Stretfordians a 3-2 win saw Beechy move up fourth place in the Division 1 table. Nathan Green was the Storm's Man of the Match and on target with the goals were Tom Gorton, Mike Waklatsi and Callum Lomax.
Glad to be back playing again in the Bolton Bury and District League were the Under 15's Tornadoes who's last official game was on Saturday 14th October 2017. Drawn away to Atherton Town Tigers in the Chairman's Cup the Tornadoes led 2-0 at half time but the tie finished level at 3-3. The teams were then involved in a penalty-kick decider which was won by Atherton Town. Beechy's Star Player was Ademola Olasanya who also hit a hat-trick.
Also in the Bolton Bury and District League the Under 14's Tornadoes dominated their Section E away game with FC Bridgewater and were rewarded with a 3-0 victory. Man of the Match Fernley Davies (2) and Charlie Wallwork got the goals but the score line flattered United opponents because the Tornadoes should have won by a greater margin.
The Under 13's Thunder had home advantage for their Division 2 match against AFC Salford Juniors. In a tentative opening fifteen minutes both teams defended well so chances were few and far between. Eventually Beechy grabbed the lead through leading goal scorer Prince Idusuyi who superbly bent the ball past the keeper. Following more chances Thunder went 2-0 up when Prince Idusuyi was on target again with his fourteenth goal of the season. The visitors came out stronger in the second half and had Beechy under sustained pressure. AFC Salford reduced the arrears via a free kick from outside the area and the Beechy keeper was stranded as the ball flew into the net. Thunder conceded two more goals and somehow ended up losing 3-2.
Still seeking their first victory of the season are the Under 13's Tornadoes who were in action at Stretford Victoria. So far its been a difficult season for the Beechy boys who always play with a smile on their faces. In Division 2 the Tornadoes who lost the match scored goals via Man of the Match Max Chidgey (2) and Ronan Courtney.
In Division 1 the Under 13's Storm met top of the table team Moorside Rangers Red who remain unbeaten after winning the derby game 3-0. Voted Man of the Match for the Storm was Ben Howard.
Following a superb all-round display the Under 11's Lightning (9v9) beat hosts Winton JFC Blues after a thoroughly entertaining fixture. Zane Davies, David Olidoy and Matthew Corry were on target as the teams shared six goals at the end of sixty minutes. Then Man of the Match Mikey Sylvestre, Robert Harris and Demi Jones were all successful as Beechy won the tie following a penalty shoot-out.
A great performance from Beechy Under 11's Typhoon (9v9) wasn't quite enough to secure victory away at Swinton Junior Tigers. In the Challenge Tournament United went a goal down but in reply goals from Cole Winstanley, Sam Henderson and Charlie Harris put the Typhoon firmly in control. But as Swinton Tigers fought back Beechy couldn't maintain their advantage and eventually lost the match. The Typhoon's Star Player was keeper Peter Ellis.
The Under 11's Storm (9v9) extended their impressive unbeaten run with victory over De La Salle Rangers. Freddie Jackson, Caden Gibson, Sonny O'Brien and Harry Backhouse scored the goals in this Challenge Tournament match.

Making a slow start in their Challenge Tournament home game against Boothstown Falcons the Under 9's Tornadoes found themselves trailing by two goals at half time.

Man of the Match was goalkeeper Brandon Booth following a string of significant saves.
Beechy Under 8's Storm played De La Salle Devils in the Challenge Tournament and showing great spirit fought back from four goals down. There were excellent performances from all the players plus some superb passing throughout the game.

Man of the Match Shay Winstanley got two goals plus there was a goal apiece for Frankie Carter and Riley Haney.
