News and results for Saturday 1st October

Bears – Drew one and lost one.

Hawks – Beat Oxford Grove.  Goal of the season contender with our wingers combining well, Jack providing a great cross from near the corner for Nat to rifle a sweet left footed volley home.

Pumas – A good performance by the pumas despite a depleted squad.  Lost first game against Bury FC Tigers.  Game of the morning followed in a draw against Atherton Town Pirates, Pumas scoring two excellent free kicks form Kayden and Ollie thundering in a strike off the bar in the dying seconds.  Great game for the spectators.  MOTM to new joiner James for his listening skills and some really good work in midfield.

Vipers – Won at home.  Great display from the lads, good attacking football, great link up and passing produced hat tricks for Kymani, Archie and Louis.  Great team effort all round.  MOTM Archie.

Kestrels – Won away to Ramsbottom United.  Leading at half time the team extended their lead soon after the break.  All opposition goals coming from periods of power plays.   A well earned win for all.  MOTM Keane with a spectacular double hat-trick and a special mention for a wonder goal from Haris.  Running the full length of the pitch and finishing with a deft chip over the keeper.

Sapphires –.

Lions – Played two twenty minute games.  Great football from start to finish in both games.  MOTM Finlay great wing play and the best first tough I’ve seen this season.

Falcons – Lost to Bury Juniors.  Great effort with only six players.  The regular lads are starting to work really well together.

Dragons – Drew with Walshaw Wasps in an end to end game.  Grabbing a last gaps equaliser.  Exciting stuff. MOTM Nathan Gale in goal for what seemed like ten 1v1 saves.  Great goalkeeper.
