Timperley U14 Boys A team vs Heaton Mersey:
Another week, another match and a few men down so, with 10 men, Timperley A warmed up wondering how this year's Heaton Mersey team would shape up. Their record this season is pretty good - only falling to Brooklands so far.
And then the HM squad appeared....a sea of gold, plenty of subs and an average size of player that would sit comfortably in an U16 league! What do they feed them on at Heaton Mersey?? (in fact there were a few U16 players with dispensations on the HM team - but this time I managed to keep my mouth shut and not scare our team!!)
With Tim Nicol and Charlie Edwards missing (thanks for coming down Charlie to support!) - we managed to hold our nerve and thanks to a Lucas Almond goal set up by Alex Winton, we ended 1-1 at the end of the first quarter. Timperley were showing that despite having no subs, we were capable of putting up a good fight and in fact we had far more shots in attack in this quarter.
The second quarter saw a Harry Man special - great goal but Mersey managed to get 2 in, one a delflection off a good interception from Timperley defence - resulting in 2 -3 scoreline at the end of Q2. Good defensive play and breaking runs by Josh P were noted!
One down as we entered Q3 and Timperley seemed to step up a gear with a good save from James S and 2 strong goals from Harry and Joe. Despite reaching with his foot a powerful shot from HM, James conceded one goal leaving the score 4 a piece for the start of Q4. A familiar scenarion for us!
A tough last quarter with 2 goals from HM but Lucas, Alex and Joe did the business resulting in a 7-6 victory for Timperley.
A good match with excellent performance from everyone - well done lads - it showed that you held up on both fitness and skills.
Wilmslow vs Timperley B:
A stronger performance from our relatively new B team. After being 5 down at the end of Q1, the team battled on finally losing 14 - 5. The whole team is developing well and a good effort by all with particular mentions for Grady and Josh B and some excellent saved from Adam in goal.
this is following a similar patter to last year with good early performances resulting in defeat but then the winning begins towards and after Christmas - well done lads, keep the effort up.
Training on Wednesday – let’s try and get a few more out this week lads and then matches on Saturday 5th December;
A team away at Norbury
B team at home against Mellor
