The U11's boys had an early start at the weekend. After a very positive few weeks in both training and recent games we were really looking forward to building on the lad’s great work.
We decided to go with the same formation as our last game as this worked well. The first few minutes looked a little unsteady but after the early nerves settled the boys soon got their game on. They held the ball well and got into some dangerous positions in the final third.
We just struggled to get those shots off at the right moment to really test the keeper.
At the other end of the pitch our defence partnership was working hard to break down the attacks.

As we got to the break we talked about our shape and positioning.
We changed our wingers into wing backs with Kobey and Olly stepping into the role. They absolutely nailed it, and this worked well for both defensively and when on the attack. Both have missed the last few weeks due to various isolations and it was great to see them getting their first taste of 9 a side football. The change didn't faze them one bit and their performances were exceptional. It was also great to present them both with there presentation trophies at the end of a great game of football.
Both teams played well and in really good spirit. There was a lot of respect shown between the two teams and the game was very competitive throughout.

Our Player of the match was awarded to Tyler. He played really well throughout the whole game, but his 2nd half performance was nothing short of fantastic. He showed real leadership qualities driving the team forward and getting the ball into dangerous areas and he was always on hand for clearing our oppositions corners. He is also fast becoming our arial specialist, showing great bravery when the ball is fizzed into the box.
Well done boys!! Keep up the great work.

A huge thank you to our sponsors Capitol Building Contractors. This week they provided the boys with a new set of footballs for the new season. Your support is very much appreciated 👏👏

Our ladies recreational team had there first friendly against reddish north end fc away in Stockport and from the off was up and ready for it forcing a corner straight from the off, Jules whipped in a lovely cross and within 20 seconds our defender Emma won the ball to find the corner of the net. That didn't stop them and they kept on pushing winning every ball and with Naomi and Nat both playing new positions as wing backs absolutely smashed it. And Nat coming close early and nearly scoring and Naomi winning everything it wasn't long before we scored our second.

Had a shuffle of players, moved jules abit more forward and a lovely through ball from maddie to find Jules who still had alot to do but kept the ball in her feet got round the defenders and put a left foot rocket in the top corner 👌.

At half time we had a change of keeper with abbi keeping a clean sheet first half it was time to go up front and get a goal. And she didn't disappoint and with Emma going in goal second half she assisted abbi from a goal kick and abbi did very well on the outside of her boot to find the far corner in off the post class finish 🙌. Danielle got a throw in, threw it to abbi out on the far touchline, adjusted her body turned full 180 and on he volley nearly put it far top corner being inches wide, that would of been some goal.

On they brought a united academy player to try change the game and some good football from herself taking on a couple and with a great shot she found the net 3-1 unlucky Emma you got near it. But our defence chloe and naomi soon adjusted to the threat and kept her out of the rest off the game, well done.

Danielle had a solid game in midfield and had a couple of chances just didn't fall her way this game ( it will come ) maddie having a few chances and keeper doing well to keep her out. And beth played well in both her roles in midfield winning her tackles.

And from our super subs cazzie and Lisa who is recovering from a injury came on to do there bit for the team hope i haven't missed anyone out and was hard to call a mom today as they all played so well reddish had alot of fresh legs but that didn't faze our ladies and seen the game out great result. From the front to the back every player was playing with a smile on there face and that showed with the result, all put in 100% well done .

⚽️ Ladies 1st Result ⚽️

AFC Bolton 4 - 2 Cadley

Today our ladies were back in action and started our preseason.

With a slight tweak in personnel and coaching team everybody has to be on the same page and manage our expectations.

From the first whistle we had the majority of possession but that didn’t count for anything. Against the run of play we found ourselves 1-0 down. We quickly found the equaliser to put things right. We then went 2-1 up and thought we would then kick on and put the game to bed. But the resilient Cadley ladies stood firm and make life difficult for us. Just before half time Cadley equalised and went into the break 2-2.

Half time team talk was a tough one because we know that there is a lot of work to do. But also felt we had more to offer.

Second half was much of the same, we had a majority of possession and finally got the goals we deserved to put the game to bed. At times some of the football we played was outstanding and is a pleasure to watch. If we’re taking today as a base start of what we can offer then we’ve got one hell of season ahead of us 🤍⚽️

🌟 POM - Erin
Erin was OUTSTANDING today! Such a solid full back who oozes pace and strength. Erin has been challenged to be more of an option on the pitch and play the ball out more. Erin delivered all this today and to have a full back who can have such an impact on the game is incredible. Well done Erin you get the bar now 👏🏻

U12s Girls vs Unsworth

Friendly game at home today and confidence in the team was high off the back of a 5-0 midweek win.
We only had 9 today so before the game we talked about letting the ball do the work and trying to conserve energy 🤔 never going to happen when you have the likes of Lacey, Lilly C, Ebo in your team. From the off we were strong and working as a team looking to get at Unsworth right from the start. It wasn't long before the ball was played out wide left and Emily M got hold of the ball and shot bottom left of the keeper. Great goal and just what Emily deserved after weeks of improvement. Our defence was looking its usual brick wall with Tilly supporting the back line of Willow, Ebo, and Izzy, I don't remember us giving many chances away.
We came in at HT 1-0 up.

Second half was always going to be a battle with no subs to freshen things up and the girls had to dig deep and find all the energy they could. The resilience of this group of girls is tremendous. Battling to win everything, strong tackles and looking always to go and score more goals. We were unlucky not to add to the score line with chances from Poppy and Lilly C. We had to change the girls round a bit positionally today to get breathers and we battled right to the end. Great team win for the team even though we were running on empty at the end.


Three words fearless, strength and determination. For such a small girl Lilly C certainly gives just as good as she gets when she hits that football pitch. I think Lillys confidence has gone through the roof in the past few months. She never stopped today chasing and hassling every time someone near her had the ball. Lilly always looks to go forward and I am sure we will see a goal from her very soon. Not that you would ever notice but Lilly playing up a year is doing a tremendous job.
Keep up the work you are doing at home becouse it is clear on the pitch that it is working.
