Tameside Saturday league

Chadderton Park under 19’s Eagles had to settle for a point after an entertaining 2-2 draw at home to Littleborough.

The Eagles should have been 1-0 up after 12 minutes when Sam Foy headed home from a corner only for the referee to disallow it for a foul.

Littleborough took the lead after 19 minutes with good low finish inside the area to make it 1-0. But on 26 minutes the Eagles were level, Littleborough cleared a corner only as far as Will Greenhalgh who took one touch before hitting a 30 yard shot over the keeper and into the back of the net to make it 1-1.

Both teams had chances to score before half time but didn’t take them.

Into the second half and the Eagles were piling on the pressure and knocking at the door, with the Littleborough keeper producing a number of fine saves to keep the Eagles at bay.

With just seven minutes left Byron Smith picked up the ball on the edge of the box and found himself free in the box and fired past the keeper from close range to make it 2-1 to the Eagles.

With time running out Littleborough were awarded a very dubious free kick which looked liked two of their own players fell over themselves and from the resulting free kick they beat the keeper to make it 2-2 in a dramatic end to the game as the Eagles had to settle for a draw when victory was looming.

North Bury League

Chadderton Park under 15’s Lions enjoyed a fantastic 8-0 win away at Bridge JFC U15 Hawks.

Lewis North opened the scoring for the Lions at the back post.

Adam Belwassa then set up Kristian Walker to score with a thunderous tap in to make it 2-0.

Bridge created a number of chances in the first half but Kameron Starrs produced four magnificent saves to keep Bridge off the scoresheet at half time.

Into the second half and it was all one way traffic as Bridge were hit for six with Kieran Akehurst hitting a 30 yard floating chip and this was followed with an audacious back heel from a corner.

Kristian Walker lashed home his second of the game, North added his second of the game from an Akehurst cross, Belwassa bagged a goal and Sheick Abdoul completed the rout and the Lions claimed the three points.

East Manchester Junior Football League – Saturday

Chadderton Park under 15’s Dragons progressed to the Final of the EMJFL Primary Cup for the third consecutive season as the holders beat Glossop Blues 4-0.

After a tricky start the Dragons found themselves 1-0 up at half time and an improved second half saw them add another 3 goals with the goals coming from a Saja Manafa brace, Abdullah Cheema and Reece Booth.

East Manchester Junior Football League – Sunday

Chadderton Park under 15’s Lions suffered a disappointing 3-2 defeat at home to Curzon Ashton in a very entertaining game in the Sunday Primary Cup Quarter Final.

Curzon found themselves 3-0 up after two very scrappy goals and a nice breakaway for the third.

But the Lions never gave up when Antonis Koiloropolous crossed for Kristian Walker to fire home a lovely half volley to make it 3-1.

Then Elliot Matthews made it 3-2 when he fired home from the edge of the box.

But the Lions just couldn’t get the equaliser.

Chadderton Park under 12’s Griffins were unlucky to lose 3-1 at home to the unbeaten league leaders Stockport Dynamo Yellows.

The Griffins were more than a match for their opponents and at times outplayed them.

Finding themselves 2-0 down, the Griffins got back into the game when Dylan Cooper scored with a great flick into the net.

The Griffins pressed for an equaliser and both Jack Howard and Harrison Cooper both hit the post and the bar.

Stockport then caught the Griffins on the break and made it 3-1 with a good finish.

North Manchester Girls League

Chadderton Park under 14’s Girls enjoyed a fantastic 5-1 win over Oldham Athletic.

Poppy Moorhouse opened the scoring with a superb 25 yard free kick into the top right hand corner to make it 1-0 and that’s how it stayed until half time.

Anna Keeling came on as a half time substitute and caused havoc on the left, creating two great chances for Emily Parsons to score two great goals to put the girls 3-0 up.

Annie Taylor and Heidi Sheldon added two more to make it 5-0.

Goalkeeper Amy Tapper was unlucky not to keep a clean sheet as Oldham scored from a free kick that was deflected off one of the Chaddy players to make the final score 5-1.

Greater Manchester Women’s Football League

Chadderton Park under 18’s Lionesses were very unfortunate to lose 5-2 away at AFC Manchester in a very feisty affair.

The first half was end to end action, with AFC taking the lead after eight minutes with a free header from a corner.

But just four minutes later and the Lionesses were level when an excellent ream move resulted in Tara Phethean firing home with a superb finish.

In the 20th minute the home side scored again but against the run of play to make it 2-1.

But yet again another excellent team move resulted in the same outcome as Phethean fired home in off the post to make it 2-2.

It looked like the teams would go in level at half time but an unfortunate own goal changed this and the Lionesses found themselves 3-2 down at half time.

Luck deserted the Lionesses in the second half, and they found themselves 4-2 down when AFC scored another goal against the run of play.

The Lionesses rallied for each other and played some excellent football as they tried and tired to get on the scoresheet again.

It wasn’t to be and in injury time AFC added a fifth goal.

Chris Howard Under 11’s

On Saturday players from Chadderton Park Phoenix Under 11’s and Elton Sports Club supported the National Ant-Bullying Week with players from both teams choosing to wear odd socks as a symbol of individualism.

The game was played in great spirits with all involved thoroughly enjoying the game.
