Timperley Villa FC U10 Jets vs Wilmslow Town FC U10 Panthers
The Jets hosted Wilmslow Town Panthers on Saturday morning in a match which had plenty of end to end moments and chances for both teams. We only had seven players available this week, but the boys were so impressive in how they kept running, never giving up and working hard for each other. Fantastic to see. We saw some great attacking moments and chances, with close efforts from Jack, Flynn and Charlie, as well as others in the second half when we had Wilmslow under pressure for a good period, but we were unfortunate in not converting our chances. We also saw some driving runs from Toby, great passing out from the back from Charlie, while Joe made some excellent challenges in midfield and when asked to go in defence. Will yet again showed his excellent shot stopping skills with some impressive saves. Well done boys.

Timperley Villa U18 Pumas vs FC Bluestar U18 Rockets
A depleted Timperley Villa Pumas, missing three key players, hosted FC Bluestar this week. A seems to be the way this season the Pumas started off slowly allowing Bluestar to have the better of the play in the first 20 minutes. However once the Pumas got into gear they dominated the final 25 minutes of the half but at half time they only had one goal, a penalty scored by Dan, to show for their efforts. The second half started the way the first had finished, with the Pumas dominating the match but without that final ball to kill off the tie until a chip over the top from Josh allowed Ben S to beat the offside trap and lob the advancing keeper. The Pumas continued to dominate the match, however began to take things too easy allowing a Bluestar player to run into the box unchallenged and slot the ball past keeper Tom W. This lead to a nervy final 10 minutes for the Pumas, however no further defensive errors meant the game finished 2-1 to the Pumas
Timperley Villa U9 Jaguars vs Trafford Youth FC U9 Tigers
A tough day for the lads today with regard to result. Although they did play better than last week and to be fair it was the first half where the damage was done. We can be proud of the boys for keeping their heads up and getting on with with it.
Timperley Villa U13 Minotaurs vs Ashton on Mersey U13 Tornadoes
The Minotaurs battled hard to earn a third straight victory despite having to play with 10 players on two different occasions in the match! The Minotaurs fell behind when a lack of communication between the defence allowed Ashton on Mersey in behind to put them 0-1 up. This seemed to spark Villa in to life and after a good passage of play saw Lucas rifle one home to level the scores. With a minute to go until half time the Minotaurs switched off again and a long range effort from Ashton on Mersey flew in to the net without a challenge.
As has been the case all season, the Minotaurs flew out of the blocks after half time and quickly began to show their quality. After some plucky work by Louis L, the ball fell nicely for him inside the box and he made no mistake in levelling the scores once more. With the momentum behind them, the Minotaurs soon got a third after some neat play between Ed and Fin, Connor was played in on goal and calmly finished his chance to make it 3-2. It could have been 3-3 soon after if it wasn’t for Huw in goal making a superb fingertip save throwing himself to his right to tip Ashton’s long range effort round the post and out for a corner!
Special mentions go out to Jayden for his MOTM performance as he showed 100% commitment and effort, epitomised by his fantastic recovery challenge on the edge of the box to stop Ashton running clean through on goal. Special mentions also go out to Leo who played on in the second half with an injured leg to stop us going down to 10 men and to Jack who played on despite feeling unwell. Louis M was a rock at the back and Dan grew in to the game and made some vital interceptions to nullify the Ashton on Mersey attack.
