Great result for Styal away at league leaders Woodley and it would have been 3 points for Styal had they not conceeded in the last minute of injury time when down to 10 men.

Styal 'A' were in contention at Atlantic until mid way through the second half. Having fought back from an early Atlantic strike to equalise, Atlantic made it 2-1 just before half time. Styal chased a further equaliser during trhe second half but Atlantic eventually struck and some quick goals followed. Styal had chances late on, Craig Smith bagging one late on.

The reserves won well---report to follow

Sale Rovers 1 Styal 'A' 0   Sale were the better side and created chances throughout the game. However, Styal were resolute and stuck together. Paul Anderson put in a man of the match performance between the sticks and Taylor, Whelan and Smith defended doggedly. It was credit to all the players that they kept Sale shut out until midway through the second half when a Sale forward latched onto a loose ball inside the box and fired it past Styal's keeper. Sale proved tough to break down on a pitch that was more suited to speedway rather than football and Styal's chances were few in number.

Sat 5th Dec Old York 2 Styal 'A' 3 Other games postponed
Dec 6, 2009, 5:34 pm

Styal 'A' outfought Old York on a heavy pitch in Stretford to pick up their first points of the season. The upfront duo of Ant Richardson and Joe Cooper gave the midfield runners something to work off. A better defensive display and a battling performance typified by Luke May's example in central midfield give Styal reason for optomism. A fuller report to follow

Thanks to all the folks that supported the race night on Saturday. It was a successful and well attended event. As usual this is vital as an income source for the club particularly as we go through the wet months

Sat 29th Nov West Kirby 4 Styal 0 Cheshire Cup; Styal 'A' 2 Knutsford 6

No report on the 1st team game.  Meanwhile Styal 'A' took some time to get going against Knutsford and some individual lapses saw them 5-0 down after 30 minutes. However they more than matched Knutsford for the rest of the game and were unlucky not to add to the 2 goals that they got.

Styal Res 3 Billinge Res 1

With Styal coming off the back of a much deserved win against a stubborn Poynton side, they were eager to make it 10 points out of 12 against Billinge, which on paper Styal were expected to beat. The team lined up as follows, John in the sticks, Anthony right back, Gaz left back, Paul and Chris centre backs. Marcus and Callum in the middle of the park with Mike wide right and Ryan Wide left. That left Matt and Bodders up front. Livo and Barnes warming the bench.

Styal started the game with great tempo and took the game straight to Billinge in search of an early goal. With Billinge unable to get out of their own half it was a matter of time before Styal scored. The first came on 25 minutes, Callum whipped a corner in from the right and Bodders met the ball with a bullet header only to see it come back off the post after a deflection off the Billinge defender on the line. The ball pinballed around in the mixer then fell kindly to Ryan on the left hand side of the edge of the box who despatched an unstoppable low drive into the goalkeepers bottom left hand corner. 1-0. Billinge had barely enough time to pull their socks up before they found themselves 2-0 down. The 'Jedwins' Anthony and Mike had formed a formidable partnership down the right hand side which Billinge had no answer for. It was a move by the Jedwins that doubled Styal's lead. Mike fizzed a low cross in which was met by Callum on the half volley on the edge of the box and the shot just like Ryan's was unstoppable and again low to the keepers left. A well taken goal at any level. 2-0 and Styal were looking good this could be embarrassing for Billinge. With Matt stretching the defence and finding acres of space in every attack, Billinge needed to press the reset button quickly. Marcus 'Gattuso' Kenny was putting himself about in midfield as usual, harassing the Billinge midfielders as usual and picking up a yellow usual !! but in his defence it was a harsh yellow for a nothing challenge. Styal started to get over confident and not pass the ball around like they had done for the first 35 mins, a few players were getting caught with the ball with which Billinge started to see a lot more of the ball than they had done. Styal back 4 had to be alert to see out the half. Styal 2-0 Billinge.

The half time break and the last 10 mins of the first half seemed to inject the Billinge players with a bit of self belief. They started the second half better than the first but with Styal's back 4 well organised found it very hard to break us down. Styal needed to up the tempo again. As always when you are 2-0 up the next goal is crucial and what a goal it was! A Billinge counter attack was thwarted by Chris who again had been outstanding all game, then as Styal had started the first half we passed it around with conviction and everyone on the Styal team had had a touch before Anthony Jedwin whipped in a fine cross for Bodders to meet at the far post and loop a header into the opposite top corner over a stranded Billinge Keeper. 3-0 and the game effectively over. With the 3 points in the bag Styal began to take there foot off the pedal and let Billinge more into the game and more into the Styal half. So a double substitution saw Livo and Barnes come on for Bodders and Matt. Fingers crossed there were no injuries otherwise Oatsey would have to come on. The back 4 of Billinge were tired and slow and didn't look particularly happy to see Styal's attackers replaced with fresh legs. A great flick by Livo nearly led to a Barnes goal but his outside of the left boot effort shaved the post. Billinge did get a goal back with around 20 mins to go, confusion in the Styal box led to a free strike on goal which found the net from short range, but it was too little to late. John wasn't happy to concede a goal after making a few good saves throughout the game. Paul was solid in the air at the back and Gaz had their right winger in his pocket! Styal ran out deserved winners 3-1. Good performances all over the park, another 3 points and the momentum seems to be back. Bring on Poynton!!

Cringlewood 9 Styal 'A' 1

Styal made a quick cup exit with a lack lustre display against Cringlewood. Trailing 3-1 at half time after a Davies goal seemed to have given Styal something to play for in the second half; Styal succumbed meekly to a team that wanted the ball more and used it well going forward.
