It was a Sunday league of two halves this week as the top two divisions imploded while there was a decent turnout in the lower leagues
Not a single, solitary game survived in the top division. That’s a good start…
A whopping one game went ahead in the second tier, but it wasn’t much of a match as a suspiciously strong looking Stockport Eagles hammered Netsix & Chill 13-0. Michael Winn top scored with 4, while there was three from Paul Waugh and doubles from Ray Donnelly and Lee Clarke.
It’s already looking like 2 Goals 1 Schlupp have gone in at a lower level than they needed to, as a team made up of players who generally play at a higher level picked up another win, easing to an 8-5 victory over The Veterans, with Michael Winn claiming another three. Team Tom are the only other unbeaten team in this division, and they played out a tight 3-3 draw with Polish Army as James Cresswell and Bania scored two each for either team. Inter Your Sister remain pointless (some might say in more ways than one!) after a third straight defeat, as SK Six picked up their first win outside of the bottom division. Harry Bridge scored 4 of their goals in a 6-3 win, and hopefully we’ll remember to give them last seasons trophies this weekend!
Why So Serious? are the early leaders as they ended Athletico Pathetico‘s 100% start to the season with a comfortable 14-5 win. Ben Murphy and Tom Ratcliffe scored 5 each, with Jake Smallwood’s 5 in reply for Athletico just in consolation. Deportivo Lack Of Talent are up to third but it took 36 minutes for the deadlock to be broken in their game with CA FC. Mike Devitt’s opening goal were followed by two more as a very tight game ended in a 3-0 win. There was another clean sheet in the Fat Boys Run Wild v FC Stront Bakken game this week, with the Fat Lads failing to breach the Bucket Boys defence as Bakken picked up a comfortable 5-0 win to go 4th.
GIVEN THE TURNOUT WE MIGHT HAVE MORE THAN THIS, BUT THE ONLY CONFIRMED SPACE IS IN THE CHAMPIONSHIP – TO TAKE THE SLOT GET IN TOUCH FOR DETAILS!
The top division looks like it could be a belter this season, with two more tight games taking place this week. Current champs Expected Toulouse took on Kinky Slipper in a belter, and there was never more than one goal in it as Wesley Harney’s Kinky hat trick and a double for Joe Roche from Toulouse meant we ended with a 4-4 draw, as Harney’s late penalty miss cost them the win. Love Of Lacey FC got off to a good start against Grand Street Wanderers this week, going two up in the first 6 minutes. Grand Street stuck at it, but Demell Cumberbatch’s second goal 10 minutes from time helped them to a 4-2 win that sees them maintain their 100% record.
Phantom Brazilians have been out of the top flight for a couple of seasons now, having seemingly never having been able to do enough for us to relegate them! They are back on top of the Championship in the early stages after a ridiculous 19-1 win over Chief & Indians. Only having 6 players caught up with Chiefs as injuries saw them concede 12 second half goals without reply. Daniel Clayton scored 6 and Gaz Wharton 5 in the most one sided of games. Trent The Fish will be there or there abouts at the end of the season, and they picked up another win to end Cheadle FC‘s decent recent run. Shane Bridges and Michael Winn scored two each in a 6-1 victory.
An understrength Ctrl Alt De Ligt were up for a game against Premiership Nice Buns, and the result went the way we’d expect with Tom Hall top scoring with three in an 8-2 win.

Another week, another potential shift in the title race as Speshull City took on Snorting Lisbon, who were in the middle of an indifferent patch of form having initially burst onto the scene a couple of months ago. Snorting were comfortable winners the last time these two met, but Speshull were always able to keep them at arms length this wee, with two goals each from Niall Brooks, Jamie Stokes and Dean Simpson enough to help them to a 7-5 win that takes them top. Club Tropicana have run back into a bit of form recently, and they were involved in a cracking game with Sons FC this week. Danny Moss scored 4 for Tropicana, but three from James Raynor and a double from Reece Jeffs meant the points were shared in a 6-6 draw.
Despite getting hammered in a friendly last night, Michu At Dea Gea Ba are the new leaders of the Championship after Rusholme Ruffians suffered a shock first defeat, 3-2 at the hands of Barcabona, who they beat 11-2 just a few weeks ago. Alex Federico’s double for the former leaders wasn’t enough as Kyle Poole, Layton Smith and Kubi Guc capped a second half comeback from 2-0 down to claim their second win. Stroke Titty didn’t even have the comfort of a Conor Dolan consolation goal this week, as Jay Willingham’s three goals weren’t enough to stop them going down to a 6-4 defeat to Leavemyarsealona, with Jamie Stokes claiming a couple for them.
The title was going to either Wellspring or New Team this week, with Wellspring just needing to avoid defeat to hold onto their crown. They edged the first half and lead 2-1 at the break, but they took complete control in the second period as 4 goals from Mike Cocks helped them to a surprisingly comfortable 9-2 win and a second (maybe third) straight title. While they were busy finishing off the previous season, Sevilla Lacatalent and Stockport Eagles got their new season underway. Eagles started strongly and lead 4-3 at the break, but it was an entirely different story in the second half as Sevilla roared back with Tom Jackson claiming 6 goals as they turned things around to pick up a 10-4 win.
THE WEDNESDAY LEAGUE IS CURRENTLY FULL! BUT THERE’S PLENTY OF OTHER OPTIONS OUT THERE…
The Ballers take over at Stockport Sports Village finally took place last night, with the first game of the brand new Thursday league. The biggest win of the night came when two new teams faced off, as Gareth Lager Sometimes Cider beat High Lane FC 6-0 with Elliott Jones grabbing a hat trick. B&B 1997 also kept a clean sheet as they beat the 5 men of Soccer PM 3-0. Shaun Harding scored and claimed the MOTM award as B&B spread the goals around. The opening game of the night was a good one as Longue Yids picked up a hard fought opening day win, beating Sporting Keumgang 4-2. Steven Chipchase claimed three for Yids, with Jordan Conway scoring a brace in reply for Sporting. Long standing Hyde FC‘s first game was a goal fest against new / returning side FC 6 or 7. Ryan Hurst’s 4 goals for FC weren’t enough for them to claim a point from their opening game as Gene Hoole scored three and Chris Sheridan two as Hyde won a cracking game 7-6, though the individual highlight of the game was probably Craig Council’s goal from inside his own half.
Longue Yids stopped on to give last season’s champions Adswood Reformed a game, but they might have wished they hadn’t as it was hat tricks all round for John Holt, Dan Sowter, Dane Wood and Liam Longford as Adswood ran out 14-5 winners.

The only game of the night in the Reddish Thursday league was a belter as the two teams with a 100% record went head to head. Xavi Dodgers looked to have the game sewn up at the break as two goals from Michael Winn and one from Lee Clarke saw them lead 3-0 against Nigel De Mong, Nigel flew out of the traps at the start of the sedon period though, and 4 goals in 10 minutes, two from Harry Arden, saw them go 4-3 up with 14 to play. They couldn’t quite hold on though, as Ray Donnelly’s late equiliser ended both sides 100% records, with both teams remaining unbeaten.
