Tues 5th April Northenden Vics 3 Styal 'A' 3 (Styal win 4-3 on pens)
Apr 6, 2011, 5:12 pm

Styal looked to have thrown away a good opportunity playing with a strong wind at their backs in the first half when they came off 3-1 down. Northenden opened the scoring; Tom Allen equalised for Styal midway through the half and Northenden scored twice before the break from the only chances they had. Styal had a hatful of chances that went begging.

Just before the end of the half, a reckless challenge by a Northenden player saw Sam Jackson carried off and Northenden down to 10 men. Styal regrouped and used the man advantage well in the second half with first Chris Littler and then the influential Tom Cummings bringing the teams level. The stage was then set for Styal's Matt Purvis to pull off a number of fine saves as Northenden had a last 10 minute flurry on the Styal goal and it was fitting the Purvis saved Northendens 4th spot kick during the penalty shootout to seal Styal's passage to the semi final stage.

Styal stuck manfully at the job and hopefully a good performance against the other semi finalist (from Sale Town or Ashton Park) who meet tonight will see a chance of silverware for the club

Styal ‘A’ 2 Ashton Park 0

A wonder save from Nick Bazeley in the first minute kept Ashton Park out and Lee Taylor, Stu Davis stayed resolute for the rest of the game in the heart of Styal’s defence to get Styal a second clean sheet this season. The first half was an even affair but Styal took the lead on 30 mins with their best goal this season. Styal’s right side passed the ball around then Little put David Tapia-Owens free on the right. Tom Allen launched himself at the inch perfect cross with a diving header into the roof of the net finishing a fine team goal.

Styal stood firm in the second half and made numerous chances; the Ashton Park keeper saving a number well. Styal’s second goal deflated the visitors. Although not as beautiful as the first, Lee Taylor’s powerful goalward header was backheaded past the stranded keeper by the involuntary reflex actions of Sim Cook. However it was another deserved goal.

Styal 'A' 0 Cornishman 2

Styal defended resolutely in the first half with Cornishman well on top and went in 1-0 down at the break. The second half was  different story with Styal upping their game and creating a series of good chances; the final touch was lacking however when it was needed. The game was over when Cornishman scored a breakaway 2nd goal with 3 minutes left to finish Styal's gallant efforts.

Styal 'A' didn't impose themselves on the opposition during the first half and struggled to muster any attempts on goal despite a stiff breeze at their backs. With their passing loose and no-one playing with any conviction it was atypical loose midfield pass that put their own defence on the back foot and Broadheath capitalised shooting the opener past stand in keeper Jackson. The second half was better and the introduction of Twentyman and Allen saw some forays down the wings on both sides. However, there was still no meaningful shots on goal and as the game went on with Styal pushing it was always likely the Braodheath would finish the game off with a breakaway goal. Exactly what happened with 10 monutes to go.

Dave Oates efforts to get the pitch payable for the first team home game failed due to the heavy rain and the fishermen continued to be out in force where the water has built up.

Styal 'A' put in a good attacking display against Conway with Kelly 3, Littler 2 and Ghassemi 2 scoring. An own goal made up the 8. At the other end stand in keeper Matt Purvis had a fine game clearing his lines when called upon. He protected Styal's first clean sheet of the season when he got enough of a hand on the ball to stop a Conway effort early on tipping it onto the post. Rankin, Slavin and Jackson were all quick to clear any danger. Kelly and Littler worked hard upfront causing all sorts of problems for the opponents and the Cookie twins ran the midfield for the most part. Zain Abassi came on at half time and showed some promise whilst Darren Fluery grafted hard in both midfield and full back roles.
