Timperley Villa U17 Pumas vs Benchill Celtic JFC U17
A cold and wet Sunday morning saw the U17 Pumas host Benchill Celtic U18. The game saw the Pumas dominate from the start however they couldn’t convert this dominance into goals until in the 25th minute when Archie stepped up to convert a penalty. The Benchill player/manager continued to perform wonders in goal, keeping his team in the match until a blistering strike from Ben S made the halftime score 2-0.
The second half continued in the same vein as the first, with the Pumas dominating play, and as the Benchill legs began to tire the pitch opened up for the Pumas to take advantage of. In total the Pumas scored a further six goals in the second half with Benchill scoring a late consolation. The highlights of the goal scoring were a hattrick from centre-back Archie, with his second goal a mazy run the full length of the pitch dribbling past the whole of the Benchill team before slotting the ball past the keeper – this even had the referee and opposition players applauding. Alex B also scored a second half hattrick with the eighth goal coming from Luke.
This result continues the Pumas unbeaten run in the T&D league.
Timperley Villa U9 Jets vs Sale Communities JFC U9 Hawks
The Jets played at home against Sale Communities Hawks U9s on Saturday morning. It was a good, but hard match for us. The game had lots of goals, some good passages of passing from both teams, brave saves from the goalkeepers and lots of end to end action. The boys again showed some really good moments of team passing, as well as some great individual skills and finishing in front of goal, when the opportunities came. The boys kept going until the end, which was great to see - well done Jets.

Timperley Villa U16 Hornets vs Hale United FC U16 Rockets
Well then…what a great game and result. I couldn’t be prouder of them all individually and collectively as a team.
Beating the previously undefeated Hale with a score line that didn’t flatter them is testament to how they are growing and improving. I was especially pleased with the commitment and energy levels, fighting for every ball until the final whistle.
And playing quality football throughout, 5 great goals, and 5 different goal scorers in pretty boggy conditions. Well done Kieran, Dylan, Ged, Zac & Nick – and to Zac also for Player of the Week for a boundless performance covering every blade and bit of mud and a superb top corner free-kick to top it off!
Let’s hope this continues.
Timperley Villa Minotaurs U12's vs Timperley FC U12 Bayern
The Minotaurs were keen to get back to winning ways in their 2nd Autumn Cup game but due to injuries & illness had 5 players missing for the match.
Unfortunately they were up against the league leaders and despite a real end to end game they ended up losing 5-0.
Two fantastic free kicks from Jayden missed by a whisker and once again we managed to hit both the post and bar.
On top of that we had numerous goal mouth scrambles but couldn't take our chances particularly in the 2nd half.
Our man of the match was stand in goalkeeper Ed who made some excellent saves and a special mention to Fin who tried so hard for the entire match.
As ever we will dust ourselves down, have a good training session on Tuesday and look forward to our next cup game on Sunday.
Come on the Minotaurs.
Timperley Villa U15 Lightning v Altrincham FC U15 Juventus
The weather gods smiled again on us as the Lightning played away against Altrincham in the league. The pitch was muddy and slippy and led to a few comical slips and falls, but it was very much playable.
The Lightning , for a second week running, failed to find a spark in the first half. On a heavy surface, the boys struggled to piece together any passing or movement and toiled as a tricky Altrincham midfield made life very difficult for the lads.
In spite of Henry putting us in front, Altrincham quickly replied and then - just as quickly, Harry put us back in the lead. The rest of the half wasn't pretty viewing as neither team took the initiative and a stalemate ensued.
The fateful "minute before half-time" arrived and Altrincham dealt a heavy punch with an equaliser to send the teams back to their coaching corners with Timperley heads firmly dropped.
A rallying call from the coaches and players, failed to generate the much needed boost, though Timperley certainly took hold of possession and initially looked the brighter team as they began to create a handful of good chances.
A resilient Altrincham weren't going to be swept aside though and their hard work was rewarded with a lead-grabbing 57th minute goal.
It could have been all over, as our body language suggested the boys may well have been floored !
So huge credit most then go to the whole team , who stuck to their game and kept trying to play passing football, and they were rewarded with a fabulous equaliser which goalscorer Henry enjoyed with a roar that could be heard across Trafford !
With only two minutes left, Altrincham were pushed back and in spite of some valiant resistance, Lightning's Matt D found the back of the net to regain the lead.
Altrincham weren't finished though and they threw everything at us for the last 30 seconds, but we countered that pressure and arrived in their half with a new found fizz to our play and Matt D sealed the victory with a second goal in as many minutes just before the referees whistle.
A fantastic 5-3 result, which keeps the Lightning top of the table having not dropped points yet this season.
