Cheadle Linotype Reserves 1 Styal Reserves 2

 Poch and Loz had a few personal scores to settle after the embarrassing drubbing handed out by Lino at the end of last season. Taul Paul was the only remaining starter from that side which shows the changes the management have made in the reserve team set up. Keen to ensure Styal began strongly they opted for 5 across the midfield with Sam Dumford moved from his customary right back slot to sit infront of the back 4 with Marchbank to add some steel to proceedings. The tactic seemed to work early on with Styal picking off the Lino forwards and quickly setting Hammy, Sam and Sefu on their way in a series of counter attacks. The one that paid off was quality down the left from Marchbank setting Sam free. He cut inside and picked out Hammy who coolly slotted home. A defensive mix up let Lino back in against the run of play but straight from the kick off a superb cross from the left was met by Sefu who should have immediately restored the lead. In the end, it was a long throw that did the job, flicked at the near post and Sefu Chambers controlled, turned and picked out the top corner. Lino were largely kept at bay by a well marshalled back four and luke May and Joe Knight in particular were at the top of their game. At the other end Sefu Chambers was outstanding and lead the line causing Cheadle all sorts of problems and really Styal should have added to their 2 goals. The team spirit and commitment shown was superb and Styal's Reserves move safely into the next round of the league cup. Next week they move on to the Altrincham Cup as they look to stay involved in all competitions.

Cornishman 4 Styal 'A' 2

Styal were unlucky to lose after a strong and spirited away at Cornishman.

Despite conceding an early goal styal played some of their best football of the season and created plenty of chances in the first half, controlling the game and dictating the tempo.

Cornishman led 1-0 at half time and styal were slower out of the blocks in the 2nd half and found themselves 3 down.

Styal continued to press and 2 stunning long range efforts from Sam Cooper and Matt Cook were saved by the opposition keeper.

Suspended Lee Taylor jumped straight into his role as stand in Assistant manager and even had the audacity to substitute his boss Matt Cook in the 2nd half.

A few inspired substitutions and Styal were back in the game with 2 goals in quick succession. Some good work down the right from Nick Rankin and David Tapia-Owens set up Sam Cooper to tap in before Chris Littler cooly finished to bring Styal right back into the game.

After a goalmouth scramble in the Styal penalty area, the referee bizarrely gave cornishman a free kick for a pass back from which they scored late on to put the game beyond doubt.

Positives to be taken for Styal who hope for more good performances in the future.

Sat 23rd October Styal 2 Cheadle Nomads 3 Cheshire Cup AET; Styal 'A' 2 Broadheath C. 1
Oct 25, 2010, 5:14 pm

Styal went down to an extra time winner on a heavy pitch in a hard fought cup tie.

Styal 'A' 2 Broadheath Central 1

Styal 'A' made it 3 wins in their last 3 games with a hard fought victory at home to Broadheath.
Styal took the lead early on when Chris Littler was brought down in the penalty area, and Styal were given their first real chance on goal. Littler dusted himself off and converted the spot kick well, giving the home side a good start.

Styal went two up in the second half, after a set piece fell to the in-form Tom Allen who was again in the right place at the right time, making it 3 goals in his last 3.

A real tough display all over the field, particularly in defence and a solid game from Goalkeeper Chris Ruddock meant that Styal were able to hold on for the 3 points despite Broadheath grabbing a late consolation. 100% effort from all players ensured that Styal deserved their points, despite a real tricky performance.

Sat 16th October Styal Res 3 Poynton Res 0; Conway Rangers 2 Styal 'A' 3

Styal Res 3 Poynton Res 0

3 back to back defeats left the reserves with the task of getting the season back on track at home to local rivals Poynton. Poch and Loz resisted the temptation to make changes with the 1st team having a rare week off, and stuck with the core that had previously strung 18pts together. That said the return of Sefu Chambers up front certainly added the fire power that had clearly been missing in the last few games.

Styal dominated for most of the most part but it took a cross from Livingstone on the right to fly in over the keepers head to settle the nerves. That little bit of luck was just what was needed and West and then Chambers wrapped up a game that in truth should have been over by half time.

A good win against our neighbours, but much tougher tests lie ahead and Styal Res need to take the good organisation and commitment into the next games to capitalise on the decent start that they have made to the season.

Conway "2 Styal'A' 3

Styal 'A' managed to take their unbeaten run in the league to four games after a less than convincing 3-2 win against Conway Rangers.
Styal who were missing a few familiar faces eventually took the lead late in the first half after Tom Allen's misdirected shot found Sam Jackson who was able to tap in for his first goal for the club.
It was 2-0 soon after the break when Jackson returned the favour, his corner finding Tom Allen at the back post who was able to finish with his second attempt, making it 2 goals in 2 games in his new centre forward role.
Styal took their foot off the gas a little in the second half and some dodgy defending from a corner allowed their opposition back into the game.
The scores were level soon after when a some suspect refereeing allowed Conway to score from the penalty spot and even up the match.
Substitute Tom Cummings sealed the win for Styal with a fine individual effort, shrugging off three or four players before slotting the ball into the far corner from just outside the area.
Another solid performance in goal from Matt Purvis and some solid tackles at the back from Andy Slavin meant that Styal were able to hold on for the 3 points.
Styal now find themselves 5th in the table and heading in the right direction.

Club Night and Junior Football
Oct 14, 2010, 7:22 am

Saturday 30th October is a club night. Food after the game back at the club house. Down into Wilmslow afterwards for a few beers. All players from all 3 teams are expected to support this. Friends also welcome to join.

Parkside are now using the pitch on a Sunday morning and playing under 17 football at a high standard. They have 2 home fixtures later this month:

17th October  Parkside v Broadheath

31st October Parkside v Dukinfield

These are morning kick offs (10.30am). They already bring a good crowd but will appreciate having more people down giving support.

Sat 9th October Styal 3 Northwich Villa 2; Billinge Res 1 Styal Res 0; Sale Town Res 2 Styal 'A' 4
Oct 9, 2010, 9:10 pm

A good win for the first team overcoming Northwich in an end to end match.

Styal 'A' put 4 past Sale Town with Metcalf (2), Littler and Allen scoring. Matt Purvis had a good game between the sticks and Lee Taylor and Stu Davies reinforced the spine of the team with solid displays. Better all round but all the players can step their games up another notch.

Sat 2nd October-CUP Styal 3 Eagle Sports 5; Greenhalls Res 5 Styal Res 1; Cornishman 6 Styal 'A' 3

Cornishman 6 Styal 'A' 3 Altrincham Div 2 Cup

Styal conceded too many soft goals and were always chasing the game after a fragile start. Cook, Metcalf and Richardson scored for Styal but this result leaves them focussing on the league

Sat 25th Sept Styal 3 Pilkingtons 1; Rylands Res 2 Styal Res 1; Styal 'A' 2 Unicorn 2
Sep 27, 2010, 9:00 am

Styal 'A' were 2-0 up at half time against Unicorn after Ant Richardson fired in an opener and a Chris Littler cross was headed into his own net by a Unicorn defender. Styal never got out of the blocks though in the second half and conceded 2 early goals as Unicorn took advantage of Styal's shakey start. Despite Adi Tottey's efforts to raise a response Styal ran out of legs and didnt create enough openings to get back into the match
