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 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.

Crosfields 3 Styal 2 Sat 11 August
Aug 12, 2007, 11:21 am

First game of the season felt great up until the 70th min of the game. Styal started with a great tempo moving the ball quickly and causing the home team all sorts of problems with Smith and Graham up front giving them no time to play. The front 2 were well supported by Thornton and Barnes on the wings, with Dickeninson and Massey controlling things in front of the back four. It came as no surprise when Graham chased a long ball over the top and coolly lobbed the oncoming keeper to put Styal 1-0 up in 8th minute.

With Styal now moving in for the kill it was Barnes who whipped in a terrific corner only for the home defender to slice past his own keeper to make it 2-0 to Styal with 20th minutes gone. Styal were now in total control of this game and it seemedwould go in to half time with 2-0 lead. However a lack of awareness lead to the home team getting one back 10 mins before the break to make 2-1 to Styal. Within 3 minutes of this Styal went straight up the other end only for Dave Graham to  be upended in the area. The ensuing penalty was taken by Barnes but saved by the home keeper.

The second half saw Styal create at least 3 more good chances which went begging until around the 70th min when for some reason the whole styal team took their foot off the gas to allow a soft goal from a hopeful cross giving new keeper Cowlee no chance. Within 10min Crosfields took a 3-2  lead when a run from the halfway line resulted in a free shot from the edge of the box to seal the win for the home side.

Trafford Res 0 Styal 3 Tuesday 1st May
A penalty after 20 minutes by Nick Challinor and goals either side of half-time by John Thornton sealed yet another win for Styal in their last game of the season. This result pushes Styal up into 4th place in the league. With all teams finishing well up their respective divisions the club is well placed to threaten to win trophies next year.

Styal continue their winning streak with 2 last minute goals against Daten. Styal Res 4 Garswood Res 2 Thursday 26th April
Dave Oates men finish off their season with a good win.
Poynton 1 Styal 4 Tuesday 24th April
With this being the 3rd game in 6 days for Styal it was always going to test the squad of players. With players pulling out through injury, suspension or being heavy legged from the previous games the game started well with both teams on the attack. Styal carried more threat with Dave Graham going close on a couple of occassions ,before a screamer from Barnes who cut in from the right and unleashed a unsaveble strike from 25yrds to give Styal a lead on 20 minutes. A 1-0 lead looked likely towards the end of the first half until Dave Graham chased  a lost cause into the corner and somehow squared a ball for Brian Mathews to coolly finish on the stroke of half time giving Styal a 2-0 advantage. The 2nd half saw the same pattern continue with Gavin Smith striking [matrix like] into the Poynton net after good work by Mathews to put Styal 3 up with a hour gone. Poynton responded and pulled one back when a mistake by Dan McDonnell gave the Poynton forward a easy chance which he put away with 20 minutes left. The game was heading for the finish when with 2 minutes to go Dave Graham skipped past one defender only to be upended in the penalty area for a Styal penalty which he himself despatched from the spot kick that followed. Looks like Morrison might get manager of the month award after 13 unbeaten and 11 straight wins.
Styal Res 1 Linotype CHN Res 1 Monday 23rd April
Styal 1 Barnton 0 Saturday 21st April
With Styal having hardly and time to recover and 4 changes from recent winning games it was always going to be difficult against a well drilled Barnton team and so it turned out. Both teams tried to play football on a dry and bumpy Styal pitch with defences coming out on top with neither teams keepers hardly having a shot of any note to save in the what was a fairly even first half. The second half saw the introduction of Brennon and Boardman and the Styal tempo picked up with good work by Smith and Graham causing problems for Barnton. Despite their endeavour and work rate creating good chances for themselves and thers it wasn't until Boardman fired a 30yrd shot into the bottom corner to give  win styal the game in the 70th minute that things were sealed. A tough performance and 3points in a game that was fairly evenly
Gamesley 0 Styal 1
What a time to travel to Gamesly, midweek and 6.30pm kick off, the Mid Cheshire's version of the old den[millwall].with a game that never going to be easy. The styal team stood firm up to the tackles and constant barracking from the home supporters and it was Styal who took all 3 points with a well taken goal from man of the match John Thornton who ran past 2 players before coolly putting the ball past the home keeper in the 25th minute. Thornton could have gone on to complete a hat trick had it not been for the bobbly pitch, which made running with ball even more difficult. With Styal's defence well marshalled by Caple, Boardman, Haywood and Filson and keeper Nick Vernon called upon to make 2 very good saves it was a job well done with every one competing to keep the unbeaten run going.
Styal 2 Rylands 0 Saturday 7th April
With Styal in the swing of their end of season run it was a heavy legged team that turned out against a Rylands side fighting to stay in the division. On a bobbly surface Rylands started brighter and in the 25th minute a mistake from Filson allowed a Rylands forward to surge into the box but luckily Niel Capel rescued the situation, thwarting the attacker before he could shoot at Styal keeper, Vernon. Rylands had a couple of good first half attempts saved by Vernon and looked the better side in the first half.
The second half saw manager Morrison introduce MacDonnell, Thornton and Graham and Styal took a more direct approach to the game. On 70 minutes good play by Smith set up Graham who lobbed the Rylands keeper for the opening goal. The game was sealed by Filson with only 5 minutes left as Rylands pushed forward. Filson's 60 yard clearance bounced over the opposition keepr to give Styal a 2-0 victory.
