Curzon Ashton Res 1 Styal 3; Styal Res 2 Gamesley Res 2; Styal 'A' 3 Brooklands 1 Saturday 29th September
Oct 1, 2007, 3:47 pm
Curzon Ashton Res 1 Styal 3
This was always going to be a tricky away game in the Tameside stadium to a good Curzon team sitting just behind the leaders. The game was as expected with Curzon having a lot of the ball but doing little with it in the last third and styal creating 3 good chances which fell to Graham who snatched at the ball with just the keeper to beat. Styal opened the scoring with a corner from Matthews which Mark Tueart flung himself at forcing the keeper into a fine save and pushing the ball against the cross bar only for Dave[I've got a soft bounce] Graham to head into a empty net after 25mins. With Styal in the lead and looking comfortable it was a mistake by Brennon which nearly resulted in Curzon equalizing. Then Boardman tried to be a smart alec by heading the ball back to Cowley in the Styal goal only for the ball to be picked up by the Curzon forward who was denied by the Styal keeper.ht curzon 0- styal 1.
The second half saw the home team come out all guns blazing but they were well marshalled by Styal's midfield and defence. Then on 65mins Matthews broke down the left and hit a 30yrd cross field ball onto the runner Barnes and Barnes coolly placed the ball past the keeper to make 2-0. 10minutes later a deep cross by the home team resulted in a header being placed into the bottom corner to make the final 15mins quite nerve racking with Syal's lead cut to 1 goal. However a long over the top resulted in Dave Graham being fouled by the keeper to give Styal a penalty which was dispatched by Matthews to make the final score Curzon 1-Styal 3. 
 
Styal Res 2 Gamesley Res 2
Team :- R Harrison, D Talbot, J Heywood, N Capel, L Tueart, P Adkin, P
Livingstone, M Barnes, M Pochin, C McCormick, C Smith Subs :- A Chandler, M Jaklin
With no game last week Styal should have been fresh, but looked far from it, as Gamesly looked the sharper team showing more determination and fight.
However against the run of play a ball through to Smith in the box saw him manhandled and brought down for a Styal penalty. Smith picked himself up to take the penalty only to see the Gamesly keeper make a fine stop. At the other end Gamely were breaking the Styal defence but couldn't beat Harrison in the Styal goal who made two stunning saves.
The half time team talk fell on deaf ears as Styal continued where they left off with sloppy marking and passing and as Gamesly pushed and controlled the early part of the second half their dominance payed off as the Styal defence stood off and allowed a free shot to open the score.
Soon after Styal made a change and brought on Andy Chandler and changed to 3-5-2 which saw an immediate improvement, with more passion and urgency started to create chances with Talbot missing from 5 yds ! However Talbot soon made amends smashing the ball  into the roof of the net to level the score. With 10 minutes felt a ball through from Barnes saw the Gamesly keeper spill it and substitute Chandler pounce and finish from a tight angle to put Styal 2-1 up. With Styal playing with more confidence a fine ball through to smith saw him beat his defender and smash a shot from the edge of
the box only to see it hit the post and away from the goal.
With full time up Gamesly mounted one more attack and a rash challenge from Harrison in goal brought down the Gamesly forward leaving the referee no choice but to award a penalty, with Gamesly smashing the ball home to level the score and saw Styal drop their first points of the season.
 
STYAL     'A'       3      V     1             BROOKLANDS.
Styal mantained their 100% start to the season   with 3 wins in 3 against a spirited Brooklands team that were relegated from the 1st division last year, albeit with a slightly under par performance. It did at times, look a bit messy and the tempo was a bit stop start, but that said, it was another 3 points. Si Roberts opened the scoring with a sweetly struck 20 yarder that nestled in the bottom corner.Then Matty West added his 5th and 6th goals of the season with two quite exceptional finishes, that really defy his 17 years of age (though we're not sure where  he's got a groin strain from!).  Styal went into the break 3 nil up.

The second half was a bit non-descript. Lee "gangster" McDonnell came on and tried to unlock the Brooklands defence from the right which, unfortunatley fell on his weaker foot (we're still looking for his stronger one!) and stabbed it just wide.  Brooklands scored an undeserved consolation goal in the last minute.

Overall the Styal back line was very organised and to be honest, didn't look like conceding. Another outstanding display by the accomplished Alex Kemp at centre half, backed up superbly by Paul Moore, Chris Brown  and Paul "sicknote" Marchbank . The game also saw the first appearance of the season from Punk Takiar,showing his versatility at centre forward leading the line in exemplary fashion. I managed to get him after the game for a quote.

' I feel that this performance was below the usual high standards we've been setting ourselves,  and the game really should have been dead and buried long before and we should have added to the goals tally. However if we can play below par and still win comfortably then this is a good sign of things to come. '

MOM.....MATTY WEST.


Styal 4 Mersey Royal 3 Cheshire Cup Saturday 22nd September
Sep 23, 2007, 10:56 am
Manager Morrisson's Benitez style squad rotation looked flawed at half time with the home side 2-1 down against opposition from the Wirral. However, Styal came through thanks to a improved second half display.
A Wirrall free kick from Styal's right was misjudged by Styal keeper Cowell who arrived late and was left stranded as the opposition forward flicked his header into an empty net. Graham netted after a good Styal move to make it 1-1 but on the stroke of half-time Wirrall netted again. Tueart and Barnes were outfoxed in the midfield and the pass over the top of Styal's centre-back twosome, Heywood and Pownall was latched onto by Mersey Royal's centre forward who arrived before Cowell and placed the ball over him into the net.
Styal started the second half much better and soon raced into a 4-2 lead. Dickenson was introduced to the midfield at half-time and this made a difference. Graham soon latched on to a through ball and shot low into the corner of the net to restore equality. A free kick 25 yards from goal was despatched by Dickenson into the roof of the net with the away keeper never having seen it. The fourth goal was the best with a fluid move ending with Tueart who shot from the edge of the box into the top corner. Despite having more chances to stretch the lead it was the away team who scored with 15 minutes to go to make it 4-3 for Styal. It was a good chance for Morrisson to assess his fringe players but a more disjointed display than usual as a result

Styal 1 Greenhalls Padgate SO 0

This was a 6 pointer at the top of the table with both teams seeking to challenge league leaders Middlewich Town. With no tackles shirked, both teams tried to dominate the early play. With 10 minutes gone Dave Graham put the ball into the back of the Greenhall's net but for some still unknown reason the linesman flagged and the referee ruled it out. Both midfields were on top of their games and cancelled each other out for much of the first half. Although Styal had the lion's share of the ball they could not break into the Greenhall's defence.

The second half started with tyal upping the tempo and 3 good chances were created but Barnes and Graham failed to capitalise on them. In the 70 th minute a long ball up to Graham was laid off to Barnes who released Brennan. Brennan's pin point cross was headed in from 8 yards by Graham to give Styal a well deserved lead. The last 10 minutes of the game saw Greenhall's go man for man at the back and push on. Styal were untroubled though and Andy Pownall had his best game yet for Styal. A well deserved 3 points pushes Styal into second place behind Middlewich on goal difference only.
Golborne Sports Res 0 Styal Res 4
Team :- R Harrison, M Pochin, J Heywood, P Moore, L Tueart, P Livingstone, M Barnes, N Capel, M Filson, C McCormick, D Gregory. Subs : - P Adkin, S Chambers, C Brown

Styal went to Goldborne without midfield dynamo Sean Nolan but saw the return of Mike Filson and the first start for Neil Capel. Looking to maintain their fantastic start to the season took on unbeaten Goldborne which was going to prove a stern test.

The game wasn't more than 15 seconds old before a ball Joe Heywood cleared the Goldborne right back and saw Filson cut inside to rifle a shot which the keeper could only parry with Chris McCormick following in to make sure the ball crossed the line, it was the perfect start for Styal. With Styal putting good pressure on a shaky looking Goldborne defence a fine ball through to danny Gregory saw him turn two defenders only to be hacked down in the box for a clear penalty.Chris McCormick stepped up to take the spot kick but a weak penalty made an easy save for the Goldborne keeper.
Half time saw Styal bring on Sefu Chambers in place of danny Gregory (injury) and it wasn't long before he had the Goldborne defence on the back foot and should have scored within ten minutes of coming on. However, it was Chris McCormick who made amends for his missed spot kick with a fine taken goal to make it 2-0. Styal looked in total control with Goldborne creating very few clear chances and the Styal backline looking very comfortable. With 30 minutes to go saw Styal bring on super sub Paul Adkin, with his impressive record of scoring 5 goals from coming off the bench ! But before that Sefu was creating plenty of chances for himself and it was a matter of time before he broke through the Goldborne defence to slip the ball through the Goldborne keeper to put Styal in total control. But with less than ten minutes to go and true to form Paul Adkin latched on to a fine ball and smashed the ball into the net to make it 4-0 and finish a fine performance.
 

STYAL 'A' 6    TRAFFORD UTD 0

  Following on from last weeks, hard fought 3-2 away win over Salford, where Matty West grabbed   an excellent opening game of the season hat-trick, which included two clinical finishes and a cool head to convert a last minute penalty, Styal faced Trafford at the Jim Evison .

Inspired by the team talk from player manager supremo Punk Takiar, Styal hit the ground running with a goal from Matty Cook in the first fifteen seconds of the game, a second   soon followed, before Matty Cook again blasted a half volley from just inside the box that flew passed the keeper for his second and Styals third. Total domination followed, with good passing and movement.Every area was rock solid, the back four brilliant, especially Adam Brookes and Alex Kemp. The Midfield, which included a man of the match performance from Scott Hawkins, made it look easy, Si Roberts and Matt Cooke on both flanks, tormented the Trafford defence all afternoon   led to Styal going in at half time 4-0 up.

 

The second half   saw Styal   take their foot of the gas a little but still remain in total control at a canter, with two more goals added, the fifth coming from Matty West   for his 4th goal in two games and the last one coming   from Si Roberts after a mazy run and shot.

 

In summary, Styal looked balanced   and well organised , the passing   and movement was good and we need to take everything out of the game into a very early in the season big game against Brooklands a week Saturday.

 

Player /Manager, Punk Takiar was unavailable for comment after the game as I forgot to ask him.

 

MOM……SCOTT HAWKINS.


Witton Alb Res 1 Styal 2----Styal Res 3 Billinge Res 0---Salford 2 Styal 'A' 3 Saturday 8th Sept

 'A' team report to follow
 

Witton Albion Res 1 Styal 2

The game got off to the worst possible start for Styal. With only 5 minutes gone a mix up between Barnes and Thornton gave Witton an opportunity to open the scoring, which they did from 20 yards; Cowley in the Styal goal having no chance. Styal responded well however, with Barnes, Graham and Brennan giving the home team all sorts of problems. In the 25 th minute Styal equalised when Barnes latched onto a through ball and beat the Witton keeper. Styal now started to dominate and on 35 minutes Barnes beat the offside trap, waltzed around the keeper and walked the ball into the empty net. More chances went astray from Graham, Brennan and Thornton before half-time.

In the second half Styal continued to push looking to wrap the game up with a third goal but the home keeper refused to be beaten. 5 minutes from the end Styal had a late scare when Cowley misjudged a free kick. This resulted in a Witton player presented with a volley from 10 yards out, which luckily he hit wide. Outstanding displays from Challinor, Brennan and McDonnel for Styal.

 
Styal Res 3 Billinge Res 0
Team :- R Harrison, M Pochin, P Moore, J Heywood, L Tueart, T Magdjinski, S Nolan, M Barnes, S Laffley, C McCormick, Sefu, Subs :- P Livingstone, D Gregory, P Adkin
Styal saw the return of several players from the previous week plus the addition of a new it man, Sefu who was making his debut. On a perfect day for football with a good pitch Styal started off with a determination to improve on the previous weeks performance. It wasn't long before Styal created some good chances with some fine deliveries from the wide although the front men couldn't capitalize. With Billinge making few ventures into the Styal box the back four were'nt put under any pressure and limited Billinge to a few half chances.
It was'nt long before the pressure paid off after a fine set play from a
corner with a near post corner flicked on with Sefu sliding in at the back post to open his account.
After half time Styal played some fine football with good movement and fine passing, however after a rash challenge on the Styal striker, Sefu, ended his debut and saw Danny Gregory come on upfront. A further two changes to the wide men brought fresh legs on and paid dividends with some fine crosses from Phil Livingstone causing allsorts of problems for the Billinge defence and brought out a string of fine saves from the Billinge keeper until a fine finish from in-form Danny Gregory who slotted home a fine shot from the edge of the box. This just emphasized Styal's dominance and the icing on the cake came from substitute Paul Adkin who bagged his 5th goal in as many games to wrap up another win.

Styal 4 Garswood Utd 0; Rylands Res 0 Styal Res 4 Sat 1st Sept
Sep 2, 2007, 9:27 am
Styal overcame Garswood in the cup with a solid performance at home.

The game started with Styal looking unlike their usual selves. Passes were going astray,  players looked tired and there was no real cutting edge upfront. Because of this it came as a shock when Oliver Barnes skipped past 2 defenders and placed the ball in the bottom left corner of the Garswood net to give Styal an underserved lead on 20 minutes. With the Styal defence having little to do some sloppy defending saw Daniel MacDonnell under hit a back pass forcing Styal keeper Cowley to concede a penalty on 35 minutess. The keeper redeemed the situation by saving it and Styal preserved their 1-0 lead at half-time. Smith was replaced by Graham who looked more dangerous as the game progressed and the 2nd half saw Styal go straight for the jugular with wave after wave of attack through Graham and Barnes. In the 55 th minute Dave Graham converted after good work by Brennon.and on 65 minutes Warren Dickenson ran from the centre circle to the edge of the Garswood box to fire in across the keeper to make the game safe at 3-0. With Styal now in total control Dave Graham bagged his 2nd of the game [6th this  season] from corner which gave him a free header from 4yrds to make the full time score  Styal 4-Garswood 0 

 
Rylands Res. 0 Styal Res 4
Team :-  J Aldred, D Talbot, J Heywood, P Moore, L Tueart, T Magdjinski, S Nolan, M Barnes, S Roberts, P Adkin, M Jaklin, Subs:- M Cooke, S Laffley, D Oates
Could Styal keep their impressive start ? With several players missing from the previous game it was all change with six new faces in the squad from the previous match. It was a poor start with some slack passing although Rylands offered very little in the way of a threat on the Styal goal. It took some neat footwork again by the in form Paul Adkin to skip past two defenders and slide the ball across to the unmarked Magdjinski to tap in the opening goal.
After a stern half time team talk the second half started poorly but after ten minutes a change upfront saw Steffan Laffley make his first start to the season and what a start ! A Long ball upfield reached Laffley who lost his marker and slipped the ball past the keeper to open his account. That seemed to settle Styal who then started to pass and move the ball and create more chances and it wasn't long before Laffley slipped past his man to hit his first shot at the keeper but took the rebound and slip the ball into the bottom corner of the net to make it three. Styal not happy with three put their foot down and showed their quality again with some neat passing cutting the Rylands defence apart with the ball falling to Nolan on the edge
of the who smashed the ball under the keeper to make it four nil and four wins on the trot.

Styal Reserves 2 Poynton Res 1 Thursday 30th Aug
Aug 31, 2007, 2:14 pm

Team :-J Aldred, L Tueart, M Pochin, J Heywood, A Pownall, M Barnes, S Nolan, C Massey, P LIvingstone, C McCormick, P Adkin Subs :- M Jacklin, T Magdjinski, D McDonell
Styal reserves looked to maintain there solid start against a strong Poynton side and with a couple of changes to the team from the previous game showed the strength of the squad.
Styal started brightly with some neat work through the midfield with Nolan and Massey bossing the park (although it's difficult to spot the difference between them !) It wasn't long before in-form stricker Paul Adkin showed some neat forward to skip passed two defenders to slot the ball home. Styal took control of the first half keeping Poynton at arms lenght and reducing them to hardly a shot on target. 'It wasn't long before some neat passing set up Adkin to slot in Styal's second.
The second half was a quiet affair with Styal taking their foot of the gas happy to sit back and soak up any pressure from Poynton, although with 20 minutes to go Poynton made a breakthrough with a shot from the edge of the box which caught the Styal keeper by surprise and drop under the bar.
Styal stepped up a gear and created several more chances, the best falling to substitute "Tony" Jacklin who took a lovely touch in the box only to see his shot go wide from six yards.
However Styal saw out the game to maintain winning streak.


Gamesley 1 Styal 2 Sat 25th Aug

Gamesley 1 Styal 2

Despite losing their opening league game Styal have started another good run by beating Knutsford, Linotype/CHN and drawing at Greenhalls. On Saturday it came as surprise when home side Gamesley took a shock lead. A looping header over Styal keeper Cowlee following a free kick on 20 minutes caught Styal out. Within 5 minutes though, Styal had drawn level as Dave Graham latched onto a ball over the top and slotted coolly past the keeper. Styal missed a couple more good chances before the break and went in level for half-time.

The second half saw a rampant Styal create 5 good chances which were squandered by Graham, Barnes and Matthews and it looked like Styal might have to settle for a point. However, with 20 minutes to go Matthews broke the offside trap and slotted the ball past the keeper for a 2-1 lead. The home team responded and peppered the Styal area. Cowlee pulled off a great save pushing a shot onto the bar with 10 minutes left which represented Gamesley's only real chance of the half. Brennan had a great game on Styal's right creating a number of chances for the forwards.


Styal Reserves make a flying start to the new season
Aug 27, 2007, 8:38 am
Styal Reserves next game is at home this Thursday (30th August) against Poynton Reserves. They are hoping to make it 3 wins on the trot after winning their 2 opening games away.
 

Garswood Res 1 Styal Res 3 18/08/07
Team :- R, Harrison, M. Pochin, A Giblin, J Heywood, M Filson, P Livingstone, M Tueart, S Nolan, M Barnes, C McCormick, D Gregory. Subs L Tueart, P Adkin, T Madgjinski.
Styal went to Garswood for their first game of the season with a strong squad hoping to get the season off to a good start. Styal got off to a good start with some nice flowing moves and sharp passing through midfield, the first chance fell to Danny Gregory who saw his header tipped onto the bar, shortly after Chris McCormick broke free only to push his shot wide off the keeper and the post. With the score 0-0 at half time Styal came out and continued were they left off with some more fine sharp passing and started to cut into Garswood's defence. However chances came and went and with 8 minutes to go Garswood struck with what looked like a clear offside goal but the
decision stood.
Styal piled on the pressure with some fine crossing causing Garswood's defence problems and the breakthrough came with a fine finish from Substitute Paul Adkin who slotted the ball neatly passed the keeper. Shortly after another fine move put Danny Gregory through to slot the ball past the Garswood keeper for a deserved goal, then with only a matter of minutes remaining Styal put the game safely in the bag when Leigh Tueart slotted home the third to complete a fine comeback.

 

Greenhalls P.S.O 0 Styal Res 5 22/08/07

Team :-R Harrison, M Pochin, J Heywood, A Giblin, L Tueart, P Livingstone, M Barnes, S Nolan, T Madginski, C McCormick, D Gregory, Subs:- C Fussel, P Adkin, D Talbot.
It didn't take long for Styal to open their account with some fine play with the two front men Danny Gregory and Chris McCormick, this led to Danny opening the scoring with a slotted ball tucked into the corner. Shortly after a similar move saw Danny grab his second with another cool piece of finishing. Greenhall's attacks were kept at bay with chances few and far between. On a very wide pitch Styal carried on exposing a weak Greenhall's defence and it wasn't long before a cheeky lob from 20yards out from Sean Nolan beat the stranded Greenhalls keeper. At Half time Styal had the game in the bag and bar a major disaster looked like taking another 3 points home.
However a double substitution from Styal saw the lead increase with two goals of the highest quality, the first coming from Phil Livingstone. Anice ball played across the pitch from the left found Phil wide right who cut into the edge of the box to unleash a stunning shot which swerved away from the diving Greenhall's Keeper. The Final goal came from super sub Paul Adkin which saw him take the ball wide down the right into the corner then flick the ball past two defenders he then knocked it past the attention of another defender who forced him to the edge of the box where he unleashed a stunning shot into the top corner to complete another good performance.
