We are so close to starting up our new leagues at Stockport Sports Village we can almost taste it! Here’s what’s happening when we take over…
NEW THURSDAY LEAGUE: Starts 4th July. ONE SPACE AVAILABLE!
BRAND NEW WEDNESDAY LEAGUE: Starts 24th July. 6 spaces already filled, but that now means we will be counting down the final 10 teams needed to ensure we start with two divisions of 8. The spaces will go, if you want one you best not hang around!
The Reddish leagues continue to cruise along quite nicely, here’s the few spaces we currently have available:
SUNDAY: Potentially one space in the Championship and League Two
TUESDAY: One space in the Championship
And that’s your lot! For more details or to register a team, call or text 07809252658 or complete a ‘Join A League’ form from the homepage.
Gangs Of Dwight Yorke made a statement in their first appearance of the new season, as they beat the reigning champions Beercalona 8-2 this week. Two goals from Kyle Clarke helped them into a 4-0 half time lead, which a pair of Luke Warburton goals halved early in the second period. Chris Singleton scored two late on as Gangs ended strongly to pick up an impressive win. The title race could be an interesting one this season, as Wilmslow Whoppers also got off to a winning start, with Olly Ford’s 4 goals helping them to a 6-3 win over Kipsta Cobras as they went 6-0 up inside the first 28 minutes befire Kipsta responded late on.
Sevilla Lacatalent are the early leaders in the Championship after they recovered from being 3-2 down at half time against Netsix & Chill to pick up an 8-5 victory to make it two wins out of two to start the season. Jake Riley scored 4 and Tom Jackson three as tey struck three goals in the final 5 minutes to claim the win, with Kai Lawless scoring two in reply for Netsix. Nice Buns B go second after their first win from their first match. They were surprisingly comfortable 9-3 winners over The McMuffin Men, with Charlie Williamson unsurprisingly picking up the MOTM award for his 6 goals. Bangers & Pash were also down for their first game, and they also picked up a first win as they won a competitive game with Stockport Eagles 7-5. Mike Rodden and Callum Campbell shared the goals between them, with Rodden claiming 4, while Paul Waugh scored three in a losing cause for Eagles.
Team Tom are off to a winning start for their season as Carl Carter and James Cresswell scored two apiece as they beat Inter Your Sister 4-0 in one of the longest standing games in the history of small sided football in Stockport. Some of the lads from SK Six were probably still in nappies the first time Team Tom and Inter faced off, but they played their first game outside of the bottom division this week against Polish Army. Harry Bridge’s hat trick wasn’t enough to see them claim a point though, as they were beaten 5-4 as Bania also claimed a treble for the Poles.
Sunday football seems to be suiting Athletico Pathetico, and they made it two wins from two this week by beating Step Brothers 8-4. Debutants Jake Brooks and Latham Whitehead scored the bulk of the goals, with Brooks scoring 4 and Whitehead three, with Tom Cioffi and Chris Moore scoring two each in reply for the Brotherhood. Why So Serious? have their first Ballers win in their first league game, as they narrowly defeated FC Stront Bakken 5-4. Two early Scott Williams goals put them in charge, but they were hanging on in the end as two goals from Declan Matthews and Lukas Voveris’ late second reduced their lead to just one. Yeovil Casuals debuted in the Ballers league (finally!), and picked up a first point from a 3-3 draw with Deportivo Lack Of Talent, with Rob Prince scoring a hat trick for them on their first night.
A mix up involving the Six Offenders (formerly KR FC) meant only three of their players turned up for their game with Duno. Duno kindly lent some players in order to get a game on, and it’s fair to say the game wasn’t taken overly seriously as Duno won 18-7. Athletico Pathetico stopped on to give CA FC a game, and picked up a second win by 11 goals to 2, with Vincenzo Napolitano scoring 5.

It was champion vs champions this week, but Expected Toulouse went into the game with Wheel Madrid as heavy favourites as Premiership winners. The Championship winners took a surprise lead through Jahid Hussain’s 5th minute goal, but their lead lasted just a solitary minute. In the end Liam Mottram’s scored two as Toulouse stay top after a 6-1 win. Kinky Slipper shared the goals around as they made it two wins out of two with a 4-2 victory over Nice Buns, who remain pointless after three games. Two goals in a minute half way through the second half from James Radcliffe and Johnny Dambrosio sealed the hard fought win.
Ctrl Alt De Ligt were two from two and top after an impressive win over Trent The Fish last week, but they were brought back down to earth by Phantom Brazilians this week. Phantom were in control after Daniel Clayton put them in front 9 minutes from the break, and his second, along with doubles from Ryan Clayton and Robin Hulme helped them to a 7-3 win. They join De Ligt on 6 points, with both teams now behind Trent The Fish on goal difference after they beat Chief & Indians 8-2, with Dan Arnold scoring three, Michael Winn and Shane Bridges two each. This division looks wide open, and another team joined the 6 pointer club as Cheadle FC made it back to back wins, beating Delph & Safety 7-4. Evan Farrell and Jordan Hardman scored twice each, while Joe Keyworth hit a couple in reply for Delph.
THE MONDAY LEAGUE IS CURRENTLY FULL! LOOK ELSEWHERE FOR AN IMMEDIATE START
Club Tropicana seem to be picking back up after a dodgy mid season spell that has seen them drop out of the title race, but they can still cause damage to other teams hopes of winning the title and did just that this week. They were never once in front in their clash with Snorting Lisbon, but were never more than two goals behind before Andrew Cochran’s 4th of the game in the final minute gave them a point from an 8-8 draw. James Taylor scored three, Kris Fawcett and Rob Brocklehurst two each from Snorting, while Danny Moss also added a couple for Tropicana in a brilliant game. We dropped an absolute clanger this week by asking Sons to move game times to play Speshull City after Gangsta’a Allardyce and For Fuch’s Sake had to cancel, but they didn’t have an outstanding league game to play so had to face off for the third time in 4 weeks in a friendly. Matt Peck scored 5 for Sons, but that paled into insignificance compared to the 10 that Niall Brooks scored as a crazy game ended up 19-8 to Speshull. Apologies to both teams again…
Rusholme Ruffians remained top of the Championship despite not playing last night, but Stroke Titty picked up their first win since the league split, with Conor Dolan finally scoring a goal that wasn’t a consolation. He grabbed one of their 8 goals in an 8-5 win over Michu At De Gea Ba, with callum Jones scoring three, Jay Willingham and Sam Tattersall two each, Leavemyarsealona also picked up a first win as they saw off Barcabona 8-4, with Jamies Stokes claiming a hat trick. Mark Markwell also grabbed a double for Leavemy, with Layton Smith and Harry Arden claiming two each in reply.

Exeter Gently ran New Team close last week, but it didn’t look like being the same against Wellspring this week as the title contenders went into the break with a 5-2 lead. Shane Bridges third of the game 10 minutes into the second half made it 6-3 with 15 to play, but Exeter weren’t for giving this one up, and Mike Belshaw leveled things up after Rob Milarvie had scored three to keep them in the game. A final result of 6-6 takes the possibility of the title going to goal difference out of the equation, so if Wellspring avoid defeat to New Team next week they will claim the title again. Sevilla Lacatalent jumped ship from Tuesday to Wednesday, and started off with an 11-2 friendly win over Out Of Shape FC, as Tom Jack son and Sam Melling scored 4 goals each.
