Rylands/Crosfields Res 3 Styal Res 1

The effect of holidays and injuries were very apparent in Styal's line up, with new faces introduced and old ones brought back. Styal started well looking comfortable at the back and midfield with Costain and Davies looking a threat upfront.

However, misfortune struck with only 10 minutes gone when Osborne caught a high ball in the Styal goal and clashed heads with the Rylands centre forward. After a lengthy delay the Styal keeper ended up on his way to hospital with a suspected broken nose and the Rylands forward returned well bandaged. Tottey took the keepers gloves and Davies slotted into midfield as Styal’s lone sub, veteran Takiar was introduced upfront. Mark Collins tenacious work in the middle of the park helped Styal continue where they had left off, both Collins and Costain had efforts on goal as Styal became more adventurous as the half developed. Rylands came back towards the end of the half and mounted a series of attacks and scored a crucial goal just before the break to take a 1-0 lead.

Styal again started the second half well Taylor, Stanneylands and Rodgers bossed the Rylands forwards and Matt Statham made progress from left back always seeking to get into the final third. As the half went on Rylands moved the ball better in midfield and started creating space for their forwards to run into. McCready who had a good game took a knock and limped off leaving Styal with 10 men on the pitch and giving Rylands more space to exploit. Tottey made some heroic saves but was beaten twice by forwards bearing down on him after getting past the back line. To their credit Styal kept going and Costain got reward for his efforts upfront as he latched onto a through ball from Statham, rounded the keeper and slotted home.

Sat 8th August Greenhals Padgate SO Res 0 Styal Res 2
Aug 10, 2009, 7:33 am

With no fewer than 6 new faces and a new manager/keeper in charge Styal Reserves had an excellent opening day win in the Warrington sunshine. Opting for an attacking looking formation Styal took a little time to settle but broke well with Morony and Osborne causing Padgate problems down the wing and last seasons Player of the Year McCormack continuing his excellent form up front. Cowley and his new back four of Loz Newman, Paul Stanniland, Will Allman and Craig Smith were put under reasonable pressure but mainly reduced Padgate to long range strikes which Cowley dealt with well. Twenty five minutes in Morony broke the deadlock from close range following a flowing move down the right and great cross from young Osbourne who was getting used to his new advanced role on the right.

Not long after Styal doubled their money with McCormack firing in from close range this time after good work from Morony giving Styal a 2-0 advantage at H/T

The midfield trio of Hampson, Tottie and skipper Barnes worked hard to stem the Padgate attacks which came thick and fast after half time but the determination of Styal began to frustrate Padgate and this led to the inevitable red card for their centre forward. With the introduction of more new faces in Statham, O’conner Styal added some legs to the final few minutes and can be well pleased with the win against a side that will no doubt finish high in the table.

Styal Res miss out on runners up spot by only goal difference as their long unbeaten run continues to the last game. Report to follow

Styal Reserves finish on a high.

Billinge 3 4 Styal.

Styal finished the campaign on Saturday with another win, completing an impressive sequence of ten games unbeaten, nine wins and one draw.

Ironically the draw away at Crewe cost Styal the 'Runners Up' spot in the reserve division. Linotype pipped Styal on goal difference with a home win against newly crowned champions Pilkington's.

The games started well for Styal in difficult conditions, a cross wind and rain made the early exchanges tough. But some good early possession led to Styal creating one or two early chances. It was actually Billinge who broke the deadlock totally against the run of play when the Styal centre halves both seemingly went to sleep leaving the Billinge centre forward to nip between them and drive a low shot past the Styal keeper.

Styal responded well and were passing the ball well, cutting through Billinge at every opportunity. Having won two early corners the thirds resulted in a headed own goal from the Bilinge defence leaving the score

1-1 after 20 minutes. Styal continued to press with Nolan, Condon and Moore all having shots. But again it was Billinge who took the lead from a wicked deflection from a corner leaving Styal stunned after 25 minutes.

The away side continued to pass the ball and always looked like scoring.

Danny Gregory levelled again for Styal, driving the ball home off the keeper into the bottom left hand corner. With spirits lifted Styal then took control and scored a third on 42 minutes with a first goal from Anthony Osborne, scoring from an acute angle after a good passing move down the right flank, the timing could not have been more perfect with only 2 minutes to go till half time, stunning the home side.

The second half saw Bilinge have more possession, but Styal were still in control and looked like pressing on to score a fourth. But it was Billinge who scored again and the third on 55 minutes with a decent strike levelling the games at 3-3. Having come this far the away side were not ready to cave in and give up the ghost. On 65 minutes Styal were rewarded when Nolan and Osborne combined down the right flank, a scramble in the box resulted in the ball breaking to Sean Nolan who lashed the ball into the roof of the net to make it 4-3.Styal then made a double substitution bringing on Gardner for McCormack and Smith for Condon. Loz Newman played the last 10 minutes for the injured Osborne.

Manager Mark Johnson.

It was the right result but an unbelievable game. We totally outplayed Bilinge in the first half, we passed them to death and yet we were behind twice. Uncharacteristically we made two defensive errors which cost us two goals. But yet again we showed great character and determination to get back in front. The second half was more even but apart from the long ball they had little to trouble us. Going forward we always looked a threat and likely to score.

Overall I am content with third place, if not for the upset during November I feel certain we could have retained the league, and a ten game unbeaten run showed our class, character and commitment it's a fantastic achievement to get third spot, both Loz and I are very proud of the players and what we have all achieved this season.
