An unlucky afternoon at Eagle for a pumped up Reserve Team


After Thursday lesson in football, the reserves took to the pitch with a new positive attitude, and a belief that there season was about to start!

Styal started with a high tempo and desire about them, and Eagle struggled to keep pace as the back four stood solid as Styal dominated in the middle of the park.

The ball was getting into the box, thanks to the nifty work of Crowther and Knighty on the left flank, and 15 mins in, Sefu weaved round Eagles defender only to be brought down blatantly in the box – no penalty! 10mins later, Newman goes round the back after a good exchange with Westy, and again, down he went after contact in the box, no penalty! Unbelieveable! but that’s football sometimes. There was no panic as the boys we playing well and we looked certain to break the deadlock at anytime, but then, again, against the run of play….Eagle score. Balls. That’s not good, especially knowing how this team reacts when they go 1 down………………………..but that was the old team. The boys rallied, and straight away, Sefu latched on to a loose ball in the Eagle box and Styal were level. Half time 1-1 with Styal bouncing and looking the more likely to win.

Out step Styal for the second half, the tempo drops slightly from both sides as the heat and fitness levels start to kick in. Westy look dangerous, Ants playing like a bull after a red cloth, Collins is working hard, its  a new Styal team, we’re going to win this. Eagle get the ball on the edge of the box, and poke a dinky shot at Ozzy, its tame, but deflects off coopers knee, no! it loops round ozzy into the net! Unbelievable. But gain Styal start there engines back up, and 10 mins later Ant, of all people runs in to head a cross, and guides it straight into the top bin,2 -2. They lads are doing a great job. Its gunna be a lovely afternoon.

So, 20mins left, another scrabble on the edge of the box, tackles are flying in, everyone wants to block every shot, Loz, tackles, Aspinal tackle, Ant tackles, every single tackle, the ball ends up at Eagles players feet from lucky rebounds, and then one lets off a shot that settles into the bottom corner of the net. This is not our day! But there 20mins left on the clock! 18 left, Sefu, 1 on 1 , yesssssss…ohhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh lifted over the cross bar. 15 left, goal mouth scramble, ball cleared. 10 left, another scramble, ball cleared, 5 left, everyone is knackered but they don’t give in, 1 final push, comfortable save fro Eagles keeper. Then the whilst blows for full time. Gutted, but what a difference in hunger from the lads. We’re gutted, but feel proud, we should have come away with something, but today wasn’t our day.

Managers Comments – couldn’t have asked for a better bounce back from Thursday, the lads played like they wanted to win and came off with there head held high. We were unlucky, and we all know it. Play with this attitude every game and we’re going to turn into a cracking side.

11th August Billinge Res v Styal Res
Aug 12, 2011, 12:11 pm

TEAM: Ozzy, Newman, Cooper Dunfield, Crowther, Malone, Danny, Asa, Knighty, Sefu, Ant. SUS: West (45) Wilding (70) Take a bow Ozzy 1st Game of the season, Billinge away. Carpet of a pitch. Styal boys started up for it, and before too long Asa strook the cross bar with a world beater of a freekick. Football was being played and the tempo was good, but against the run of play Styal found themselves 1 down after a switch off at the back. However, this did not stop them as Styal began to pressure again, with spells of good passing in the middle of the park and along the back four. Then, for a second time, another goal was leaked as a cross found the unmarked head of Billinge centre Forward, who placed it beautifully in the bottom corner. Half Time 2 -0 The second half saw West come on for Ant, with the idea of getting the ball to stick up top more. Again, Styal starting the half well, but Billinge broke and after some unlucky rebounds, and no decisive clearance, Billinge found themselves through on goal to bury a 3rd. Heads then dropped, expectedly, and although Styal kept a lot of the ball, things just weren’t clicking. A flourish of attacks from Billinge then followed as they tried to take advantage of the dishearten Styal. Step Up Ozzy, a series of great reaction saves, 1 on 1 saves, and general outstanding goalkeeping meant the score line was kept to only 6. Great display by the Styal number 1. The remainder of the game saw Styal keep the ball well again, but just couldn’t get it to stick up top, and struggled to make any clear cut chances. Asa stepped up to a 30yarder with 10mins to go, and buried it superbly to add a little consolation to the disheartened Styal display. Full Time 6-1 Managers Verdict Good spells of football within the back four and midfield. Work to do getting the ball to stick up top and create clearer chances and to install confidence in the team when they fall behind. Back four need to remained organised and switched on, sometimes need to get suck in harder. Lads know how this hurts, we wont see a score line like this again this season.
