- Junior Section Match Details 24th/25th Sept 16
Following a 3-1 away win over Urmston Town Hurricanes the in-form Beechfield United Under 17's found themselves as leaders of the Youth Bundesliga Division. In the Timperley and District League Beechy were 1-0 down at half time but dominating the second half collected the three points via a convincing 3-1 victory. There was a hat-trick for Man of the Match Patrick Dennison and stand-in keeper Joe Haye was credited with a first class display.
In the Bolton Bury & District League the Under 16’s Tornadoes who remain unbeaten hit double figures in their Players Cup First round tie with Bromley Cross Storm. The goals were shared between Nauris Kaluga, Joseph Furlong and Mason White.
Away to AFC Urmston Meadowside the Under 16’s Predators had just eleven players available for this Division 1 fixture. Leading 2-1 at the break United were reduced to ten players in the second half and at one stage trailed 4-2 but the Beechy lads produced a superb fightback and after getting back level were happy to settle for a 4-4 draw. George Davies, Dylan Durose, Liam Egerton and Mitchell McGivern got the goals and sharing the Man of the Match Award were Brandon Kent and Ethan Haynes.
Back in the Bolton Bury & District League the Under 14’s Tornadoes made a bad start in their away game against Bolton County Bullets and were a goal down after five minutes. Things could have got worse if it wasn’t for some great defending by Joe Bardsley and keeper Derryn Harrison. Gradually Beechy got themselves back into the game and were rewarded with an equaliser when Edward Stenton finished off a slick passing move. Keeping the pressure on their opponents the Tornadoes added a second goal through Man of the Match Joe Horrocks then two minutes later Joe Horrocks was on target again for 3-1 but unbelievably within the space of another two minutes Bolton County made it 3-3. During a tense last twenty minutes both teams created numerous chances and eventually United regained the lead courtesy of Ademola Olasanya and a fifth Beechy goal soon followed when Leighton White put United 5-3 up. Completely in control the Tornadoes scored the goal of the game when after nine smooth passes Ademola Olasanya netted goal number six but Bolton County reduced the arrears with almost the last kick of the match and it finished with a 6-4 victory for the Tornadoes.
Faced with a tough Challenge Cup game with Parkwyddn JFC were the Under 13’s Tornadoes who had home advantage for this 1st round tie. Beechy produced a hard working all-round display but went out of the competition following a 7-1 defeat. Josh Allen was named Best Player and United’s consolation goal came via Shaun Heywood.
Harry Gartley and Jack Thompson scored the goals for the Under 13’s Storm who were in action in the Chairman’s Cup. United met Prestwich FC in the 1st round and in a low-key affair suffered a 5-2 defeat.
Al three Under 12’s teams who play in the Salford and District League were involved in the Challenge Cup. The Under 12’s Storm (9v9) went goal crazy against De La Salle Reds at Beech Farm Playing Fields. Samuel Oludoyi, Taylor Share, Joe Newton, Adam Rothwell, Tom Cox, Luke Carr, Alex Vanden and Man of the Match Damion Broughton got the goals.
The Under 12’s Thunder (9v9) who were away to Barr Hill Aces produced moments of great soccer with Prince Idusuyi and Jake O’Sullivan involved in some superb link-up play. Sebastian Higson who’s commitment and energy were outstanding had a terrific match. Beechy from Division 2 were guilty of some poor decision making all over the pitch against their Division 1 opponents. 6-3 down with five minutes to go the score line looked less respectable for United when they conceded two more goals. Prince Idusuyi and Jake O’Sullivan (penalty) were the goalscorers.
Still searching for their first win of the season are the Under 12’s Tornadoes (9v9) who played Moston Tigers at Salford Sports Village. Beechy lost the match 9-1 with William Whipday getting the Tornadoes only goal and Tom Messenger collecting the Star Player Award.
Recovering from conceding an early goal the Under 11’s Storm (9v9) quickly got their act together and held a comfortable lead at half time in their Development Group Red Division match with Manchester Maccabi Cubs. Following more brilliant football in the second half Beechy raced in a five goal lead before Maccabi scored again in the last minute. Goalscorers were Tawonga Chirwa, Oliver Lawton, Ben Delaney, Cameron Booth and Kaiden McClean. Man of the Match was Sam Walton.
There was a rare defeat for the Under 10’s Hurricanes who’s opponents at Beech Farm were Howfen Blues. James Taylor and Oliver Coles shared the Man of the Match Award and goals for the Hurricanes came courtesy of Ole Kerwin, Georgi Georgiev and James Taylor.
Beechy Under 10’s Storm played their best football so far this season thanks to a slick passing game instigated by Caden Gibson. Highlight of the match against Moorside Red was an excellent move of ten accurate passes involving five players that produced a brilliant goal. Reece James, Freddie Jackson. Harry Backhouse, Josh McLoughlin and Alfie Gee scored the goals.
In action on Sunday morning were the Under 10’s Typhoon who were at home to South Manchester FC. Beechy made a strong start and took the lead when Cole Winstanley broke clear down the wing and his cross was met by Jamie Withington who’s neat finish opened the scoring. Cole’s clever play continued to create chances and he set-up another goal for Jamie then scored one himself. In the second half Harry Davies was a rock in defence helping the Typhoon maintain their lead. Cole Winstanley was Man of the Match and he fired in the fourth goal.
The Development Group Green Division match between the Under 10’s Lightning and Deans Panthers ended as a score draw. There was no Man of the Match and an own goal made up United’s tally.
Playing on an artificial surface were the Under 9’s Storm. Despite a satisfactory all-round performance away against Ladybridge Lions the Beechy boys lost this Development Group Yellow fixture. Edward Lucas received the Man of the Match Accolade while both Saul Tagoe and Oliver Cowley came closest to getting Beechy a goal.
Some brilliant quick passing moves were created by the Under 9’s Tornadoes in the first half of their away game with Moorside Red. Despite losing this Development Group Red Division encounter the Tornadoes were praised by their Manager. Oliver Percival was the team’s Best Player.
Celebrating their first win of the season were the Under 8’s Tornadoes. In a solid defensive performance all the players were simply outstanding and it was a tough decision when choosing the Man of the Match but eventually the parents selected Josh Rotherham who scored one of the goals. The other goalscorers for the Tornadoes were Harvey Riva, Ethan Harris and Josh Jemmett.
Involved in an evening fixture with Boothstown Falcons were the Under 8’s Storm. The teams produced an entertaining game of mini-soccer that included nine goals. Storm hit goals via Kylan Twigg, Henry Jones and Fletcher Jackson while voted Man of the Match was Lucas Harris.
Both Under 7’s teams kicked off their season in the Salford and District League with home games. Despite the result not going in their favour the Under 7’s Storm played well against Parkwyddn Predators. Noah Thorndyke scored a great goal via a superb free kick from outside the area and also on target was Freddie Carter with a well-placed shot into the corner of the net. Logan Holland was Man of the Match for his excellent defensive display and never say die attitude.
Also making their debut were the Under 7’s Tornadoes who met Parkwyddn Phoenix in the Development Group Yellow Division. The teams shared four goals with Alfie Lacey getting both goals for Beechy who named Flinn Rogers as their Man of the Match.
