This week's Report (15/09/2014)

Division 1 of the BSF Over 35s Football League had three games postponed on Sunday due to a combination of teams not having their LFA Affiliation Numbers and the inability to raise a team.


In the two remaining games, Stuart Williams scored for Turton Bay Mare, but they lost 2-1 to Atherton Town and Radcliffe Old Boys A rattled in six against North Walkden who were unlucky not to score, but Beswick (1), Turner (2) and a Woodford hat trick gave Radcliffe a convincing victory.


Radcliffe Old Boys B won their Division 2 game, but in less emphatic style, as they beat Bolton Lads & Girls Club in a close game in which both sides had chances to win the game which stood at 2-2 with just five minutes to play. With time running out, Noel Shine struck the winner to add to the earlier goals by Mark Entwistle and Andy Spensley.


Chorlton Sports lead Division 2 on goal difference following their 4-3 home win over Ashtonians in a great game of football. David Silcock and Noel Coleman put Chorlton ahead before John Gough made it 2-1. Daniel Aubecwicz restored Chorlton’s two-goal buffer, but Ashtonians made it 3-2 before the interval by scoring a (dubious) penalty. Ashtonians levelled after the break, completing John Gough’s hat trick, but Noel Coleman scored his second to give Chorlton victory.


After a free opening week, Mitchells Unicorn got into action and beat visitors Old Boltonians by two goals to one.


The match between Golborne Parkside and PF Bury was postponed because of the death of the Golborne Club Secretary


Division 3 initially looked like being the only Division with all the matches being played, but although all five games started, the Cross Guns match against Failsworth Home Guard was abandoned when players disputed a refereeing decision.


Andy Macintosh, Dave Fahay, John Gilmartin and Mike Instone scored to give Broadway a 4-1 victory over Whitefield Con Club and are top of the table on goal difference above Ainsworth B who won 5-2 away to Elton Liberals and Dobbies who had a 3-2 home win over Bolton Wyresdale.


Leroy Reid (1), Dean Farnworth (1), Micky Jeffers (1), Dean Barns (1), Paul Rossco (2) and Paul Rammlack (1) scored at Elton whilst Chris Williams (2), Anthony Healey (1), Simon Walsh (1) and Paul Gibson (1) were on the mark at Dobbies.


Radcliffe Old Boys C failed to make it a hat trick of victories for the Club as the “C” team lost 5-2 away to Breightmet United for whom Mick Mickshaw (2), Darren Smith, Dave Weaver and Graham Carny scored.
