A great win for Styal Res last weekend. Meanwhile Styal 'A' bowed out of the Altrincham Cup as Sale Moor who are a division above them scored 4 penalties. It was a tighter game than the scoreline suggests but Sale Moor scored 3 in the last 20 minutes making the difference.

Old Alts 2 Styal ‘A’ 4

Old Alts proved to be tough opposition and took the lead mid way through the first half when Styal failed to clear. Styal always carried the main threat but the quality of the final ball wasn’t up to their recent standard. Luke Houldsworth levelled before half time to square things up.

The second half saw both sides having chances, Styal’s best one fell to Sam Cooper but neither side could find the net due to some last ditch defending. Old Alts finally broke the deadlock with 10 minutes to go when a shot from outside the box looped over Matt Purvis in the Styal goal into the net. The last 10 minutes saw a heroic fightback from Styal as they pressurised the Old Alts back line. Gareth Metcalfe hooked the ball into the net when the first chance came to bring the scores level at 2-2. Elliot Abedian scored a classy third hitting a first time shot from outside the box with Old Alts players all over the place after more last ditch defending. The icing on the cake was added by Matt Cooke with a stunning header from a Luke Houldsworth cross.

Sat 22nd September--Styal 2 Gamesley 5; Styal 'A' 4 Sale Town Res 4

Styal ‘A’ 4 Sale Town Res 4---Styal started slowly allowing Sale the initiative and after failing to clear the ball found themselves a goal behind in the first 10 minutes. Luckily for Styal Gareth Metcalfe was very much on his game and he turned their fortunes around by half-time. First he slotted home a penalty after a surging run by left back Darren Fluery saw the Styal left back brought down in the opposition box. Then he fired home after the ball broke from a corner. And, thirdly the best of the 3 came when Conor Moore picked out his run and Gareth bent the ball around the oncoming keeper.

The defensive shortcomings cost Styal on the stroke of half time as their long throw in routine saw Sale’s centre back get a clean header on goal. Half time 3-2

Conor Moore put Styal 4-2 ahead after robbing a Sale defender and firing home off the post. Sale wouldn’t lie down and continued the aerial approach with their long throw in routine. Styal didn’t come to terms with it and Sale scored 2 further goals to level the game up. It could have gone either way at the end with both sides having good chances to take all the points.

Sat 8th Sept Styal 2 Billing 3; Denton Town Res 0 Styal Res 7; Styal 'A' 1 Deans 1

Styal ‘A’ 1 Deans 1

Overall a point each was a fair result and both teams tried to play football. The heat was exceptional and there were a number of weary legs in the second half. Styal looked comfortable for the most part but every so often Dean would put together a sharp attack that caught them wanting. It was lucky that Tom Perry was in fantastic form as he pulled off 3 outstanding first half saves, the last one when he dived to his left side to parry away a point black bullet of a shot being exceptional. At the other end Styal managed to put the ball into Deans net 3 times but only 1 counted; a classy effort from Gareth Metcalfe who went past a couple of Deans defenders and shot from the edge of the box left footed giving the keeper no chance. The feeling was that if Styal could add a second goal to the 1-0 half time lead Deans would fade in the afternoon sun.

Although Styal started well in the second half and looked to be heading towards a victory, unfortunately, Deans broke quickly from a set piece opportunity Styal had around the Deans box 20 minutes into the half and their pace and movement caught Styal napping. The shot which finished the move gave Perry no chance and was a classic counter attack. The last 25 minutes were closely fought with Deans winning the midfield battle but Styal frequently breaking down the right and putting some quality balls into the Deans box. Great games for Conor Moore upfront, Gareth Metcalfe, Adam Ireland and Matt Cook who folled in at centre half. And an outstanding performance between the sticks by Tom Perry who not only stopped the shots but commanded everything in the penalty box.
