Tameside Saturday League:

Chadderton Park under 17’s Eagles had a comprehensive 5-2 win away at Rochdalians on an extremely cold, windy and snowy morning.

The game was over as a contest in the opening ten minutes with the Eagles storming into a 3-0 lead. Playing against the wind, the Eagles took the lead after only two minutes when Ben Mulholland headed home from a fine cross. It was 2-0 six minutes later when a Rochdalains defender put the ball into his own net. Then on the ten minute mark it was 3-0 when Niall Webb scored a fine individual goal. The Eagles were opening up the Rochdalians defence for fun and some fine saves from the Rochdalian keeper and poor finishing stopping the Eagles increasing their lead further. Rochdalians pulled a goal back midway through the first half to make it 3-1. Then on the stroke of half time the Eagles restored their three goal lead when Niall Webb scored his second of the game with a cheeky back heel after a pass from Leandro Santos to make it 4-1.
Five minutes after the break it was 5-1 when Brandon Reavey scored a stunning long range goal. The rest of the half was played like an exhibition game with the Eagles bombarding the Rochdalians goal, which led a charmed life in the second half. With seconds left in the game Rochdalians scored their second of the game to make it 5-2.

Chadderton Park under 17’s Cobras dodged the snow on saturday when they played Failsworth West in the Tameside League. The squad didn’t capitalise as much as they should have in the first half with the wind behind them as it was all one way, but Jack Ellis opened the scoring chipping the keeper from 25 yards. Up against in the second half the lads played superb keeping the ball low and forged the second, another strike from Jack ricocheted off Ibrahim “Ibby” Rasul’s face to double the lead. Totally dominant performance giving the Cobras the win with a clean sheet.


Bolton, Bury and District League:

Chadderton Park under 18’s enjoyed a 7-1 win at home to Pennine Juniors in the Bolton Premier Division thanks to goals from Jack Dance with a hat-trick, a brace from Morgan Fox and further goals from Joseph Pandolfo and Sam Oko.


North Bury League:

Chadderton Park under 14’s Lions had a comfortable 5-0 win at home to Littleborough Yellows.
The Lions started very well in the cold conditions. Will Meredith again setting the impetus from Left back and a stunning left foot curler put the Lions one up.
Dalton Martins finished off well to make it 2-0 as the Lions wingers terrified them throughout the game.
Will added his second of the game with a lovely right foot effort to make it 3-0 and he completed his hat-trick with a near 40 yard worldly to make it 4-0. It was 5-0 when Charlie Sarsfield used the wind to score direct from a corner.

Chadderton Park under 12’s Dragons from the Championship reached the quarter finals of the Under 12’s Cup after beating FC Unsworth from the Premiership 3-1 on penalties after the game had finished 3-3 in normal time.
Playing the first half with the wind & driving snow storm behind them, the Dragons took a 6th minute lead as Lewis Newton lofted a wonderful free kick from 25 yards out, over the Unsworth keeper and into the top corner of the far post.
A long clearance from Leo Davis put Martim Fernandes through on goal and he calmly slotted past the keeper from eight yards.
As the game progressed it was very even with both teams going all out but a wonder strike from Alfie McMylor from 20 yards flew into the Unsworth goal to give the Dragons a 3-0 lead.
Unsworth struck back before the break as their striker pounced on a loose ball.
The conditions continued to worsen as both sets of coaches considered taking the players off for 10mins but both sets of players were determined to go on and finish the first half with the Dragons 3-1 up.
The second half was like a training game of attack vs defence as the Dragons sat deep and Unsworth looked to take advantage of having the driving weather behind them and Unsworth then made it 3-2 in the 41st minute which was followed by an equaliser in the last minute.
Penalties saw Unsworth take the lead for the first time as they scored their first, however, this turned out to be the only time they would be in front as the Dragons scored their next 3 though Alfie McMylor, Lewis Newton and Josef Cunningham which was enough to send the Dragons through to the next round of the cup. (3-1 penalties)


East Manchester Junior Football League – Saturday:

Chadderton Park under 14s Dragons took the honours in the top of the table clash winning 4-2 away at league leaders SK Olympic.
SK Olympic took the lead when they managed to break free from the Dragons defence to slot home with a good finish.
The Dragons equalised through a rare mistake from the SK Olympic keeper when he played the ball straight to Saja Manafa who struck the ball away in the corner to make it 1-1.
It was 2-1 a minute later, Saja crossing the ball for Carlos Santos to control the ball on his chest before volleying the ball into the net with a little help from the SK keeper.
The Dragons started the second half in the same way they finished the first, a good move from the Dragons saw Saja finish move to make it 3-1.
SK were reduced to ten men when one of their players was shown a red card. Unfortunately it got worse for SK when Saja completed his hat-trick to make it 4-1.
With ten minutes remaining SK pulled a goal back to make it 4-2 at the final whistle.


North Manchester Girls League:

Chaddy Park U17 Lionesses had a 1-0 win away at Moss Lane Rovers in the Round Robin League Cup.
In freezing temperatures with snow and gale force winds the game was never going to be a classic. Both teams struggled with the elements but on reflection the Lionesses deserved their victory.
Saskia Baxendale scored the only goal of the game on 17 minutes. Lucy Reeves capitalised on a defensive mistake to play Saskia through on goal who calmly found the net.
