End of season presentation at Denton Holme, July 2013

Another season came to a close and a time to reflect on what had been a difficult one due to how the league had been made up of under 14s and under 13s playing in the same league.

Kevin did the honours (thankfully he didn’t sing) at Denton Holme, giving an honest and open assessment for each player. Sportsman of the Year went to one of our hardest tacklers in the team who had a great season, Luke English, Player of the Year, and deservedly so went to Jaic Miller for an outstanding season and I’m sure he’s going to get even better, and finally the Players player of the Year was Matthew Wilson, total team player, forward, midfield and defence. Well done boys and thanks Kev.

The first half of the season through up fixtures against older opposition but to the credit of each and every one of the lads they never gave in or let their heads drop from the first minute and until the last. I said this has been a difficult season but as it progressed week by week it was pleasing to see some great individual performances, but from a personal point of view playing as a ‘team’ got better and better. This group of lads are maturing and eager to learn and succeed, the season ahead is going to bring them the success they deserve. Well done to each and every one of you

‘Sportsman of the Year’ Luke English, ‘Player of the Year’ Jaic Miller and ‘Players player of the Year’ Matthew Wilson.

Training Update

This Friday 28th June training will be on the all weather pitch at the Sheepmount, starting at 6pm as usual. Also training next week will be on Wednesday 3rd July and not Friday, again at the Sheepmount all weather pitches at 6pm. This is so the team can prepare for the tournament being played at Stockport on Saturday 6th July.

Stockport Tournament – ‘The North West Junior Champions League 2013’

The tournament is held at The ARMITAGE SPORTS CENTRE, MOSELEY ROAD, FALLOWFIELD, MANCHESTER a famous venue which has hosted the F.A. CUP FINAL. The stadium came to national attention on the 26 March 1893 during the F.A. cup final between Wolverhampton Wanderers and Everton which Wolverhampton Wanderers won 1–0.

With a ground capacity of 15,000 at the Armitage Sports Centre, the attendance of 45,000 people meant the majority of the spectators had no view of the match!

Despite this, the stadium hosted the 1899 FA Cup semi-final between Sheffield United and Liverpool; the match had to be abandoned due to a crush in the crowd.

The game was then switched to Bramhall Lane, Sheffield which resulted in draw.

Two further replays were needed, with Sheffield United going though to win the FA cup.

Teams competing are in the tournament;

1. Reddish Vulcans - Stockport, Cheshire

2. Reddish Vulcans - Stockport, Cheshire

3. Laxey Miners - Isle of Man

4. Prestwich JFC - Swinton, Manchester

5. Laxey Shunters - Braddaw, Isle of Man

6. Knottingley Albion - Castleford, West Yorkshire

7. Wimslow Town JFC - Wilmslow, Cheshire

8. Upton United - Pontefract, West Yorkshire

9. Madeley White Star, Newcastle under Lyme, Staffordshire

Players please note that teams play 11-a-side on full size Astroturf (squads of 16), with Fully Qualified Referees, for 15 minutes one way. Studs or bladed boots are not allowed; moulded studs or astroturf boots are recommended.

2013 Tournament 15th June (Creighton Rugby Club - Carlisle)

On Saturday 15th June Northbank held their annual football tournament at Creighton rugby Club. 

The 9 a-side competition was contested by;

Morton Manor

The games consisted of 15 minutes with a 2 minute half time break, all the teams playing each other, with the teams finishing 1st and 2nd in the group stage playing in the final for the cup.

Northbank had a full squad of 15 players available for the tournament which assisted in keeping the team fresh throughout the day. On a breezy dry afternoon, the Northbank team settled very quickly in the opening game against Morton Manor playing the ball on the ground and using the space available to stretch their opponents. A goal in each half, both well taken by Matty Olive after great interlinking play from the back to the front, got the reds off to the start that we were hoping for. 

Second up were Stanwix who on paper and seeing their physical size looked as if they could be one of the favourites for the cup. They were soon given a lesson in how to keep control and move the ball around the pitch, and dictate the pace of the game. Jaic Miller provided both goals using speed, good skills and accuracy to end any hope that Stanwix had of a victory.

Next it was Pirelli, and no disrespect to them, this should have been an easier game than the previous one. The game was won by Northbank through a goal being scored direct from a corner by Matty Travers, who used the wind to good effect. The reds were in control for a vast majority of the match, and chances were created in open play but without the end result of a goal. 

The last of our group games was against Newlaithes, and games between these two clubs are always hotly contested and usually very close encounters with Newlaithes in recent times coming out on top. On this occasion Northbank were by far the superior team, playing lovely passing football and soaking up any Newlaithes attacking play. The reds raced into a two goal lead before Newlaithes responded with a goal of their own to give themselves a hope of a draw or victory. This hope was almost ended immediately as the reds scored a third. The goals came by the way of two from Jaic Miller and one from Matty Travers. 

The final was to be a repeat of our last group game, Northbank v Newlaithes. After being on the end of a 3-1 defeat in the group stage, Newlaithes looked a demoralised team, but after a team talk they emerged for the final with a point to prove. 

The final was played at a high tempo, and as in the previous games the reds settled the quickest. Good marking and back up play kept Newlaithes opportunities to attack at a minimum. The Northbank central players worked hard trying to provide the opening to end the contest, with one minute remaining of normal time it came. This was a ‘team’ goal that began in our own goal area, with the ball being played on the ground through the back line and midfield, before being played to Jaic Miller to calmly strike home. There was to be only one winner now as the reds closed the door and controlled the play in the final minute.

There were 15 heroes out there, who all played a part in winning the cup. The goal scorer usually gets the glory, but this is a team game where a goalkeepers save, a tackle anywhere on the field of play, a header, a pass, marking an opponent out of the game all contribute to the victory. Today you were not only a team, but a team, Kevin, Jonny, Danny and myself are very proud to be part of.   

Well done lads, proud of each and every one of you, keep working hard,

League by Owen Main...

Northbank 3-3 Carlisle City
Northbank Win On Pens
There was only one word that would describe this game "amazing".

Carlisle City took the lead early on in the game with a neat finish past Karl Skelton. The reds played well but couldn't find a way past the City defence after the goal the first half produced no more decent oppertunites.

Then after only 2 minutes off the 2nd half City doubled there lead wiith a lob over Skelton. There was now a massive mountain to climb for Northbank if they wanted to retain their trophy at Brunton Park.

With minutes left Jaic Miller snatched a goal back wich gave the Reds hope, Northbank where dominating the game, Lee Bell had a glorious opportunity but couldn't get his foot through the ball , then in the dying seconds Miller grabed his 2nd and took the game to extra time.

Northbank where on a high and Matty Travers gave Northbank the lead for the first time before City got level through some "dodgy" defending from the reds and that could have proven costly as the game whent into penalties, it was up and down in the pens for both teams, Northbank score , City score, Northbank miss, City miss and it went right down to the keepers with Skelton saving the city pen and then scoring to march the reds on to Brunton Park in May...

Northbank U10 2-1 Carlisle City
Northbank ended up with a deserved victory against Carlisle City.

The reds had a lot of the play in the 1st half, which paid off with a fantastic goal from Joel Roberts, the move started from the half way line with him rounding 4 players before shooting and scoring.

Unfortunatly an own Goal allowed City to level.
However, in the secound half Northbank took the lead again with another well taken goal.

Both teams then had their chances to put the game to bed or to make it level, but neither team did. City could of scored but for a fine save from Karl Skelton keeping the ball out..
