Sat 11th December Lostock 2 Styal 3
Dec 12, 2010, 7:53 pm

Styal put in a fighting performance on Saturday at Lostock. With the scores 1-1 at half time Matt Toole who was the outstanding player on the pitch scored twice; the second a run from his own half finishing with a blistering left footed shot. The last few minutes saw Lostock throw everything at Styal and although they scored their second goal with 90 on the clock Styal held on until the end.

Styal Res 2 Cheadle Lino Res 3

Grappenhall Res 0 Styal Res 5


Styal Res continued to be unpredictable following up a cup win at Cheadle with a defeat at home to the same side. This time 2-0 down at h/t Styal rallied to draw level with 2 well taken Hammy strikes only to see a late and very debatable spot kick leave them pointless.


Needing to get back on track Styal travelled to Grappenhall with Poch having to make some enforced changes. Loz came in at left back for the absent Jo Knight, Marchy returned to the centre of midfield with Livo away and Arry came in at ctr half alongside Luke. A fairly even start to the match with a midfield scrap being keenly contested. Styal looked solid at the back and always lively up front with Sam C down the left causing problems. When the goal came it was Ryan Moroney’s pin point cross that was met by Marner who buried his header in the bottom left. A cross from Hammy on 45min gave Styal breathing space when it was deflected into his own net by the Grappenhall centre half.

A well taken Hammy strike just after the break killed the game off and all that was left was for Sefu to add to his growing goal tally with 2 strikes in quick succession, the last from a superb run from Luke May.

All round good performance but Styal Reserves must start to put a string of results together if they are to continue to climb from their position of 4th. Styal Reserves play the leaders Eagle on Saturday.

Northenden Vics 3 Styal 'A' 2 

Styal were lucky not to go one down in the opening minutes of the game after stand in keeper Nick Rankin pulled off a fantastic penalty save, doing wonders for his confidence so early on in the match.

It was Styal who took the lead halfway through the first half when Ant Richardson's hard work paid off as he held up the ball well before putting Tom Allen through, who neatly finished past the oncoming Northenden stopper.

Styal held their nerve into half time, but soon after were back on level terms before Sam Jackson's corner was fumbled into the net giving Styal the lead once again.

Unfortunately Styal could not hold on, and were unlucky to concede an equaliser before Northenden snatched all three points in injury time.

Styal 'A' 4 Sale Town Res 2

Some early mistakes from Sale ensured that Styal were able to take a 2-0 lead early in the game which they carried into half time.
The first came about 2 minutes into the game after a pass back, and from the free kick the ball was rolled into the path of Sam Jackson who arrowed the ball into the top corner from just inside the penalty area.
The lead was doubled just moments later when some confusion between defender and goalkeeper allowed Chris Littler in to score in an empty net, keeping up his recent run of good form.
Styal battled well to keep their lead, with solid defending particularly from centre backs Lee and Harry, meaning that there was no real threats on the Styal goal.
Styal welcomed back Nick Bazley between the sticks who had a solid game, but was powerless to stop a stunning long range effort from Sale to get them back into the game with around half an hour to play.
However it was Styal who responded best and put the game beyond doubt, first when Gareth Metcalf's flick on found Ant Richardon who was able to head home, before Matt Cook's through ball played in Metcalf who beat the offside trap and produced a stunning finish from distance.
A late Sale penalty had little impact on the final result as Styal performed well and were able to take all 3 points.

Cheadle Linotype Reserves 1 Styal Reserves 2

 Poch and Loz had a few personal scores to settle after the embarrassing drubbing handed out by Lino at the end of last season. Taul Paul was the only remaining starter from that side which shows the changes the management have made in the reserve team set up. Keen to ensure Styal began strongly they opted for 5 across the midfield with Sam Dumford moved from his customary right back slot to sit infront of the back 4 with Marchbank to add some steel to proceedings. The tactic seemed to work early on with Styal picking off the Lino forwards and quickly setting Hammy, Sam and Sefu on their way in a series of counter attacks. The one that paid off was quality down the left from Marchbank setting Sam free. He cut inside and picked out Hammy who coolly slotted home. A defensive mix up let Lino back in against the run of play but straight from the kick off a superb cross from the left was met by Sefu who should have immediately restored the lead. In the end, it was a long throw that did the job, flicked at the near post and Sefu Chambers controlled, turned and picked out the top corner. Lino were largely kept at bay by a well marshalled back four and luke May and Joe Knight in particular were at the top of their game. At the other end Sefu Chambers was outstanding and lead the line causing Cheadle all sorts of problems and really Styal should have added to their 2 goals. The team spirit and commitment shown was superb and Styal's Reserves move safely into the next round of the league cup. Next week they move on to the Altrincham Cup as they look to stay involved in all competitions.

Cornishman 4 Styal 'A' 2

Styal were unlucky to lose after a strong and spirited away at Cornishman.

Despite conceding an early goal styal played some of their best football of the season and created plenty of chances in the first half, controlling the game and dictating the tempo.

Cornishman led 1-0 at half time and styal were slower out of the blocks in the 2nd half and found themselves 3 down.

Styal continued to press and 2 stunning long range efforts from Sam Cooper and Matt Cook were saved by the opposition keeper.

Suspended Lee Taylor jumped straight into his role as stand in Assistant manager and even had the audacity to substitute his boss Matt Cook in the 2nd half.

A few inspired substitutions and Styal were back in the game with 2 goals in quick succession. Some good work down the right from Nick Rankin and David Tapia-Owens set up Sam Cooper to tap in before Chris Littler cooly finished to bring Styal right back into the game.

After a goalmouth scramble in the Styal penalty area, the referee bizarrely gave cornishman a free kick for a pass back from which they scored late on to put the game beyond doubt.

Positives to be taken for Styal who hope for more good performances in the future.

Sat 23rd October Styal 2 Cheadle Nomads 3 Cheshire Cup AET; Styal 'A' 2 Broadheath C. 1
Oct 25, 2010, 5:14 pm

Styal went down to an extra time winner on a heavy pitch in a hard fought cup tie.

Styal 'A' 2 Broadheath Central 1

Styal 'A' made it 3 wins in their last 3 games with a hard fought victory at home to Broadheath.
Styal took the lead early on when Chris Littler was brought down in the penalty area, and Styal were given their first real chance on goal. Littler dusted himself off and converted the spot kick well, giving the home side a good start.

Styal went two up in the second half, after a set piece fell to the in-form Tom Allen who was again in the right place at the right time, making it 3 goals in his last 3.

A real tough display all over the field, particularly in defence and a solid game from Goalkeeper Chris Ruddock meant that Styal were able to hold on for the 3 points despite Broadheath grabbing a late consolation. 100% effort from all players ensured that Styal deserved their points, despite a real tricky performance.

Styal Res 3 Poynton Res 0

3 back to back defeats left the reserves with the task of getting the season back on track at home to local rivals Poynton. Poch and Loz resisted the temptation to make changes with the 1st team having a rare week off, and stuck with the core that had previously strung 18pts together. That said the return of Sefu Chambers up front certainly added the fire power that had clearly been missing in the last few games.

Styal dominated for most of the most part but it took a cross from Livingstone on the right to fly in over the keepers head to settle the nerves. That little bit of luck was just what was needed and West and then Chambers wrapped up a game that in truth should have been over by half time.

A good win against our neighbours, but much tougher tests lie ahead and Styal Res need to take the good organisation and commitment into the next games to capitalise on the decent start that they have made to the season.

Conway "2 Styal'A' 3

Styal 'A' managed to take their unbeaten run in the league to four games after a less than convincing 3-2 win against Conway Rangers.
Styal who were missing a few familiar faces eventually took the lead late in the first half after Tom Allen's misdirected shot found Sam Jackson who was able to tap in for his first goal for the club.
It was 2-0 soon after the break when Jackson returned the favour, his corner finding Tom Allen at the back post who was able to finish with his second attempt, making it 2 goals in 2 games in his new centre forward role.
Styal took their foot off the gas a little in the second half and some dodgy defending from a corner allowed their opposition back into the game.
The scores were level soon after when a some suspect refereeing allowed Conway to score from the penalty spot and even up the match.
Substitute Tom Cummings sealed the win for Styal with a fine individual effort, shrugging off three or four players before slotting the ball into the far corner from just outside the area.
Another solid performance in goal from Matt Purvis and some solid tackles at the back from Andy Slavin meant that Styal were able to hold on for the 3 points.
Styal now find themselves 5th in the table and heading in the right direction.
