STYAL WIN MEMORIAL CUP--THURSDAY 18th September
Sep 19, 2008, 10:22 am
Curzon Ashton Res (Cheshire League Cup winners) 1 v Styal (Cheshire League winners) 2
  CFL Memorial Cup
Inspired by Rick Harrison's goalkeeping display, Styal held a strong Curzon Ashton team at bay after taking a 2-1 lead after only 15 minutes. PHOTOS will appear on the website shortly as Styal win another cup.
 
This was always going to a hard game with Curzon Reserves beating Styal 2 weeks ago and this fixture was switched to Curzon's ground under fllodlights in their impressive stadium.What styal could not foresee was that they were playing against the cuurzon ashton  first team and management from the unibond league. The game started with styal missing several key players through work/ injuries but this didn't seem eem to matter as Styal took the game to the Unibond side  with Brian Mathews, Oliver Barnes, Sefu Chambers and Leon Willis causing all sorts of problems resulting in Brian Mathews running 40 yards with the ball and smashing it into the top corner from 25yrds to give Styal a deserved lead on 20mins. Then the Unibond team put Styal under pressure and levelled after 15mins with good work down Styal's left. Then on 20 mins Oliver Barnes ran down Styal's left wing and smashed a 25yarder into the bottom corner to restore the lead. With no other clear cut chances until half time.the second half saw Styal replace Barnes and the home team came at Styal with more purpose, with Curzon's left winger giving Dan MacDonnell a torrid time cutting him open time and again. Usually this would have been a problem but with the born again Rick Harrison in net nothing was getting past him or the wood work (which Curzon hit twice). With Sefu and Leon up front causing problems on the counter attack Styal could have increased the lead as Curzon's first team were getting more and more desperate. For the last 15mins it was backs to the wall for Styal  who battoned down the hatches and ran their hearts out with outstanding performances from Harrison, Mathews, Chambers, Willis, Tueart and fat boy slim[staz] who had to fill in at centre midfield ,(not his best position). Manager Morrison was shall we say chuffed to bits to beat a Unibond starting 11 who picked their wages up after the game.!!!!!!! Shame there was no win bonus.

Styal Res 2 Garswood Res 1

Reserves return to winning ways....

Styal reserves returned to winning ways with a deserved 2-1 victory against Garswood on Saturday.

The first half was a close affair with Garswood passing the ball well and creating two or three half chances. Styal struggled to find some momentum and didn't play with any fluidity. Garswood took the lead on 30 minutes with a well worked goal and a good finish after working the ball wide and the cross duly came in wasn't dealt with and Styal were behind.

However, a neat one two between Danny Gregory and John Rickson took the ball to the edge of the opponents penalty area where Rickson then swept the ball wide to John Thornton who then crossed for Danny Gregory to level with 25 seconds of the re-start, a quite superb reply with Garwsood not touching the ball. Styal then started to get some possession and looked a much better outfit.

The second half was a completely different ball game. Styal took command from kick off and dominated creating two early chances which they should have converted. On 60 minutes they did take the lead through John Rickson. Chances then came with John Thornton missing a gaping goal from six yards which would have killed the game stone dead.

All in all an excellent second half which Styal commanded and the central paring of Spence and Caple looks to be very strong. Ryan Joanna Buckley also had a good second half as did Mark Tueart

Manager's Comments:

 

Cringlewood 3 Styal 'A' 2

A last minute header from a disputed corner cost styal what would have been a deserved point against a good Cringlewood side that did the double comprehensively over Styal last season. Twice Styal came from behind with West's opportunism but were caught sleeping with virtually the last kick of the game.

Cringlewood had opened the scoring with a cross from the left met on the volley into the bottom corner, a goal as good as wythenshaw park has seen for a while, but styal were back on level terms quickly and were unfortunate when captain Paul Moore headed in an OG to hand Cringlewood the lead again.

Once again to Styal's credit they fought back well to force another equalizer and had a 20 minute spell in the second half where the game should have been wrapped up. Strong performances from debutant Collins in the midfield supported by a fit again Adie Tottie and good work on the left flank from Simon Roberts gave Cringlewood plenty of problems and at 2-2 Roberts had the goal at his mercy but with defenders scrambling back to the line his side foot narrowly missed.

Three substitutions were enforced on Styal and towards the end the re-shuffle of the side took its toll with a cringlewood player stealing in unmarked to grab the winner.

  Rylands/Crosfields 2 Styal 1
Styal have not fired on all cylinders this season so this was always going to be a difficult game. However Styal had a dream start when they scored in the first 10 seconds. Brian Matthews cut in from the left and fired at goal and although the keeper saved well the ball rebounded to Duncan Warrender who poked the ball home for his 3rd of the season. This was soon undone however when the home side struck with a 30 yard effort which 2 keepers together couldn't have saved, Rick Harrison in Styal's goal stood no chance. There was not much goalmouth action but Rylands/Crosfields struck again before half time when a long through ball had to be headed clear by Styal's keeper and it fell to an opposition midfielder who scored from 35 yards out.
The second half saw Styal attack without much luck, hitting the bar twice, having a penalty claim turned down and a goal disallowed when a Styal player pushed a team mate. Rick Harrison was outstanding in goal and with young Danny Gregory and Ryan Moroney playing well when introduced there are some good points. However Styal's luck ran out and the team needs to give 100%. Manager Morrisson is also hoping for a couple of new signings to bolster the squad.

Tues 26th August Styal 2 Curzon Ashton Res 3

Styal needed 3 points to keep pace with the leaders and also sought to begin playing with the same tempo and pride displayed last season. It didn't happen.

With 20 minutes gone a fantastic move involving Brian Matthews and Ollie Barnes resulted in Warren Dickenson volleying from 6 yards. The Curzon keeper made a brilliant save. However, just 5 minutes later a shot from 35 yards out bounced through Styal keeper Cowley's fingers and Curzon took the lead. Worse followed 5 minutes later when a Curzon free header ended up in Styal's net. Half time Styal 0 Curzon 2 and Styal had disappointed.

The introduction of Keith Maires and Craig Brennan at half time saw the tempo raised by the home team but there was still little to talk of in terms of end product. Then came the games killer blow when Cowley attempted to punch away a Curzon corner only for the ball to drop to a Curzon striker who slotted the ball in the net to give Curzon a 3-0 advantage. Brennan was dismissed by the referee, quickly followed by Scarry for a second yellow card offence. Now with 9 men Styal managed to pull 2 goals back before the end. First a Keith Maires free kick into the to corner with 10 minutes left and then Duncan Warrender poked home with 5 minutes left. Manager Morrison was disappointed after the game with half the team having not performed.

 

Sat 23rd August Billinge 2 Styal 2

This was Billinge's first home game since getting promotion last season and this was never going to be easy. The game started with the home team taking the game to Styal with real threat. A mix up between Dan Macdonnell and Styal's new keeper ‘ozzy' resulted in the home team hitting the bar on 20mins and with Styal's attacks limited, the home team keeper was not tested. .The 2nd half saw Styal coming out of the blocks with more tempo and quaility than the first half, but a mix up between ‘ozzy' and the centre half saw the ball break loose and it was tapped into a empty net on 65mins to give Billinge the lead. This woke Styal up and 10mins later Keith Maires floated in a corner and Warren Dickenson's header resulted in his 3rd goal of the season drawing the teams level. With 15 minutes to go Styal launched wave after wave of attack but with no end result untill Dave Graham fired one in from just inside the box.  

It looked like Styal had 3 points in the bag. However, with just 5mins left Brian Mathews lost the ball on the left and 2 passes later Billinge's centre forward  fired under ‘ozzy' in goal to equalize for the home team and to make 2-2. The Styal of last season would have shut up shop to win the game but this years team has a little learning to do yet, a fair result on the day. Full Time Billinge 2- Styal 2

Saturday 16th August Knutsford 1 Styal 2
Aug 17, 2008, 11:47 am

With Styal having taken 3 points from their opening fixture it was important to follow on the good work at Knutsford on Saturday. Styal started, pressing the home team but not producing any end product and passes not finding their target. This changed on 30 minutes. John Thornton raced on to a flick on from Dave Graham into Knutsford's penalty box to win a penalty. New signing Duncan Warrender put the spot kick home to put Styal 1-0 up. With much of the game fought out in midfield there was little further goalmouth action before half time.

The second half continued the same way but a mistake by Styal's Luke Scarry allowed a Knutsford player to pass the ball into Styal's net from 30 yards with keeper Cowell stranded on 65 minutes. Styal responded bringing on Maires, Tueart and Barnes and the tempo was upped as they looked for the winer. Eventually with 15 minutes to go Boardman flicked on a Pownall long throw and Dickenson volleyed into the Knutsford net. Styal did not play well but did enough to deserve the win.
Styal's game v Stalybridge Tues 19th Aug was postponed (waterlogged)
 
With a number of preseason fixtures already under their belt Styal are looking forward to starting the new competitive season.

Styal 2 Linotype/CHN 1
Aug 13, 2008, 7:51 am
Styal's opening game of the league season against Linotype on Tuesday night was a tough fixture and credit is due to Linotype who played some good football for periods.
Styal missed a golden opportunity blazing over from close range early on and Linotype scored midway through the half with a well taken shot on the turn from the inside right position to stun Styal. Styal evened things up 5 minutes later when Boardman rose heading home a corner. Both teams had chances before half time but the game seemed generally flat.
The second half was much more eventful and better to watch with both teams looking to impose themselves but Styal had the edge. Styal's full backs Scarry and McDonnel did better against the tricky Lino forwards and although the Styal midfield never dominated, the Styal forwards hold up play enabled them to build attacks. The winning goal came from a penalty scored by Dickenson after a Lino defender handled a cross ball into the box midway through the second half and Dickenson almost scored a wonder goal just after when a left foot volley from 'miles out' hit the Lino crossbar. Styal soaked up pressure late on but always looked more likely to score a further goal with a number of breakaways.

Woodley 1 Styal 7
Styal gave a powerful display on Monday night at Woodley. Styal created chances in the first half, a turning point coming midway through the half when Dave Graham was through with only the Woodley keeper to beat. He was brought down from behind and the referee sent the Woodley centre half off for the professional foul. With half an hour gone Matthews split the back 4 with a crossfield ball and Barnes made a classy chip over the home keeper.
Woodley tried to get something out of the game in the second half but this left openings in their rearguard which were exploited with 6 well taken goals, Barnes' hat trick was supported by Graham (2), Thornton and Matthews. Woodley scored a consolation mid way through the half.
 
A superb achievement by Lloyd Morrison and Steve Hardy who have built a team and club spirit that has seen the first and reserve teams glorious in tough leagues.
Congratulations to all players that have played part in the team and club effort this season
