Tintwistle Athletic First Team are through to the final of the Manchester League Murray Trophy after a 3-2 win against Leigh Athletic at Glossopdale 3G.

Tintwistle started the game emphatically and opened the scoring in the opening minutes as Josh Stevenson squared for Tom Burns who rifled home. Despite dominating possession and several good chances the hosts were unable to extend their lead before the break.

It was roles reversed in the second half as Tinny struggled to pick the momentum back up and Leigh began to apply some pressure.

Tinny doubled their lead against the run of play when a penalty was awarded for a handball and Ant Rodrigues stepped up to slot home. Leigh got themselves back into the game with a goal of their own but tinny appeared to put the game to bed when Josh Stevenson raced away and finished emphatically from outside the box to make the score 3-1. With only moments left Leigh got themselves another goal bit it was all too late as Tintwistle held on to book their place in the final.

Our U13s Sunday team enjoy a great game against Inter Cheadle. With Inter being short of players, the U13s showed great sportsmanship by volunteering themselves to even the numbers. Goals scored by Joe S, Johnny, Will M, Hayden 2, Joe F 4, Charlie 4, and Frazer. MoM Joe F.
