North Bury League:

Chadderton Park under 15’s Lions suffered back to back league defeats after losing 3-1 at home to Chaddy End Old Boys.
The Lions found themselves unlucky after coming up against a keeper in top form and also failing to take their chances when they came with the ball hitting the crossbar and the post. Lewis North the one bright spark for the Lions scoring their only goal and tormenting the opposition throughout the game but couldn’t add to his total.

It was derby day in the NBJFL Under 14’s Premiership with Chadderton Park Lions taking on Chadderton Park Griffins. The Griffins started well and were unlucky not to take the lead with a number of chances with the ball just missing the goal or the Lions keeper being in the right place to save it.
It was no surprise that the Lions took the lead against the run of play to make it 1-0 after the Griffins got caught in possession near their own goal.
It was 2-0 to the Lions after a bizarre second goal when the ball seemed to knocked out of the Griffin’s keepers hands and was slotted home.
The Griffins dusted themselves off and started to play their football again and were finally rewarded with a well-deserved goal from a long range free kick from Ollie Havens to make it 2-1. The Lions hanging on for the win and the points.

North Manchester Girls League:

Chadderton Park under 14’s Girls enjoyed a fantastic 2-1 win at home to Haslingden Ladies and Girls with a great display of attacking football.
The Chaddy Park were playing with a depleted team with only 9 players available and with no substitutes they put on a superb display with the defence dealing with every threat from Haslingden.
Unfortunately for the Girls, Haslingden were awarded a dubious free-kick just outside the box which their player smashed into the roof of the net giving the Girls keeper Amy Tapper no chance.
The Girls were reduced to just 8 players when Emily Parson who was returning from injury had the ball smashed into her face and had to go off.
But the Girls heads didn’t go down and they got their just desserts when one of their many corners was put away superbly by Charlotte Whitehead who hit the ball with venom from outside the box. With the Girls now bossing the midfield it wasn’t long before they took the lead when Heidi Sheldon popped up to score from 6 yards out. Heidi was unlucky not to score a second when she hit the crossbar.
The score line flattering Haslingden who were overran by the Girls and the score should have been more emphatic.
