We are roughly 6 weeks away from marking a significant milestone of 5 years in business, but before we get to celebrate that, we have something else to feel pretty pleased about.

Having recently restarted a number of our league seasons across our two venues, and having been in a position to add extra teams to each of these leagues, we have hit triple digits in our league team numbers for the first time!

To be able to say that we now have 103 teams across our 6 leagues feels like a significant achievement, and should certainly cement our position as a major player in the small sided football game in the Stockport area! Hopefully a few of you will see that number and realise just how many teams we have to juggle around on a weekly basis!

If you have been with us or were with us since day 1, we couldn’t have done it without you and we’re so grateful to you all. If you’ve only recently discovered us and are part of the new batch of teams, we’re glad you were able to find us as we continue to build our dynasty. Every piece of social media commenting, liking or sharing has helped us keep spreading the word, as we don’t exactly have a massive advertising budget, so if you could all continue to do your part it would be appreciated.

Potential further venues could be in the pipeline going forward, so it’s time to start aiming at 200…!


It’s almost time for us to wheel out all the ‘Sixes’ related puns again (we’re bringing sixy back, let’s talk about six, baby etc etc)!

From today, Monday 1st March, we are back on it! We’ve taken the opportunity during the latest lock down to have a break, do some housework etc, but from today we will be regularly checking the Ballers phone and social media pages. We’ll work out where we were at the time of lock down, work out what league spaces we have to offer, and try and make sure they are filled in time for the return! If you weren’t playing with us at the time of lock down, you best get onto us quickly as spaces will be extremely limited.

As things stand we are due to start back on Monday 29th March at Reddish, and Wednesday 31st March at Woodley.

All leagues will continue from where they left off, so you don’t need to worry about losing whatever progress you had made at the time of lock down.

As we receive any further updates on the protocol surrounding covid measures, we’ll be sure to let everyone know.

We haven’t completely switched off during the lock down, as work has continued on what will become our BRAND NEW WEBSITE, which will hopefully contain enough new aspects to keep even the hardiest of geeks happy!

With gyms, pubs and restaurants remaining closed, and crowds still unable to attend football matches, this is your best bet for catching up with the boys…

Don’t hang around!


Covid might have come along to slow down the Ballers momentum, but work continues on the very first, in house Ballers promotional video.

Pre-lockdown, Delph & Safety were subject to the first batch of filming, with player interviews and match footage taken on the night by Viaduct Video. So far the 60 second clip below was the initial teaser of the footage that we got on the night.

Recently we were finally able to film part 2, as long standing Team Tom gave us some of their musings before getting involved in a highly entertaining game against fellow Ballers veterans Inter Your Sister.

Part 3 will hopefully follow in the coming weeks, with the full Ballers promotional video hopefully ready to be unleashed by October. As well as the full promotional video, we’ll also be turning the footage into three full team profile videos, which will become a regular thing as time goes on.

The team for the third profile video will be confirmed in the near future…


Here’s something new…

As we don’t know how much longer it will be before we can get back to full contact football, there is no point in setting up any more standard Longies Leagues, so here’s one that can run until we get the ok to start up again.

LADDER LEAGUE – How it will work!

  • Games kick off at 8pm every Tuesday, from 7th July
  • Maximum of 6 teams per week (first 6 to register play on the first week and have first ‘dibs’ on the second week, but new teams can join if spaces come up)
  • Each team will play 5x 8 minute games (2 mins between games = 1 hour total)
  • Pitch 1 is the top of the ladder, pitch 3 is bottom
  • If you win your game, you move up the ladder, lose and you drop down. Win on pitch 1 and stay at the top of the ladder, lose on pitch 3, stay bottom!
  • Win the final game of the 6 on the top pitch, and you win that week’s tournament!
  • All 6 teams will get points from 6-1 depending on where they end the night (winners get 6 points, losers of the last game on the bottom pitch get 1)
  • In the event of drawn games, the team that scores first is declared the winner. We have plans for deciding winners of games that finish 0-0…
  • Teams who lost their previous game will kick off, giving them that very slight advantage
  • To increase the pace and intensity of the shorter game, the time for each team to get their shot off is reduced to 5 seconds from first touch. If you fail to do that, the ball is returned to your opposition.
  • All other rules remain as per the standard Longies rules
  • We will play until the lockdown allows full contact football again, then the team with the most points will be the LONGIES LADDER LEAGUE WINNERS!

The league will start next week as long as we have 6 teams ready to go. Get in touch to reserve your place.


Right, we’ve successfully trialed a full Sunday evening of socially responsible lockdown Longies, and have come up with a full programme of nights and options for the foreseeable future. Some of this may still be subject to change, but for the time being here is what we have to offer.


For the time being, the only 3-a-side Longies Leagues we will be running will be on a Sunday, starting this weekend (14th June). We are offering up leagues at three separate times of the evening:

League One: 40 minute games at 4.30pm and 5.15pm

League Two: 40 minute games at 6pm and 6.45pm

League Three: 40 minute games at 7.30pm and 8.15pm


Casual bookings are classed as groups of 6 making a booking and taking a slot on a pitch and having a game between themselves.

Friendlies are groups of three contacting us and asking us to match them up with a game against another group of three.

All bookings come with a referee who will help to ensure social distancing is maintained, as well as ensuring the rules of the game are enforced as normal! The times these bookings can be made are as follows:

Monday: 8pm and 8.45pm

Tuesday: 8pm and 8.45pm

Wednesday: 9pm

Sunday: Whatever time slots are available between league games (we will try and keep some slots free at most of the available times)

We hinted at this last week on our social media channels, but here we go!

Following discussions with Alex at Viaduct Video, our Ballers promo video is going to be made up of INDIVIDUAL TEAM PROFILE VIDEOS! The first of which will be filmed NEXT MONTH.

For the first one, we are looking for a team made up of lads who are mostly aged 21 or under, who have been with us for at least a year, and already have or are currently due a set of Ballers loyalty shirts (which we will make sure we get ordered before the night of filming).

We’ve got some teams in mind, but if you genuinely would love to be the first team involved, get in touch and let us know. The profile will involve:

⚽ A team interview before a game (would involve your team getting to us an hour earlier one night)

⚽ The filming of your game, potentially with a player or two mic’d up to catch some of the in game chat

⚽ Quick post match interview with individuals after the game

Alex will then trawl through the footage and put together a kick ass final video which we’ll use to promote Brand Ballers!

We’ll be doing two more team profile videos at a later date (hopefully quite soon after), and these three will go towards completing the full promo video.

That won’t be the end of it though, as team profile videos will become part of what we offer up to our long standing teams as time goes by…!


We have a bit of free pitch space available on a Monday evening in our Reddish leagues, so what else are we supposed to do other than start a new division?!

This means we have spaces for 6 new teams to get involved in a BRAND NEW DIVISION that will filter in with the current Monday league at the end of the existing season.

If you’re new to us or haven’t played at our Reddish venue, here’s what you need to know…

Super long 50 minute games

Just £5 per player, per game

Kick offs at 8pm or 9pm weekly (we’ll always do our best to accommodate kick off requests…)

Full results, stats and player profiles housed on this very website

Weekly Round Up – 24th May 2019


We got so close to getting our first Thursday night action on this week, but those pesky EU elections meant we couldn’t use the club this week. There’s always next week, and we’ll be doing another tournament NEXT THURSDAY, 30TH MAY at 8pm. The league will start as soon as we’ve got enough teams to get going, but we don’t think it will take long.

We’ve also got our NEW SUNDAY & MONDAY LEAGUES starting in the next few weeks, so there are plenty of options for anyone who is looking to get their team signed up.

For more information or to register your team, fill in a ‘Join A League’ form from the homepage.



Beercalona look to be on the brink of retaining their Sunday league title as they edged a cracking game 10-7 against Morning Glory, with Tykio Williams claiming 6 of their goals. The only team who can now catch them are Gangs Of Dwight Yorke, but that looks unlikley after they were surprisingly beaten 9-3 by a Duno side who are slowly piecing together a pretty decent team. Kaylon top scored for them with 5 as they look to secure a top division space for next season. On a full night for the top flight, Kipsta Cobras picked up their second win of the season, beating KR FC 6-4, with the new boys potentially looking at a season in the Championship when the new league kicks off next month. Jack Horgan and Kyle Clarke both scored doubles for Kipsta, while Jake Dean did likewise in reply for KR.


A strange night in the Championship as the top two were both comfortably beaten. FC AOTS first defeat of the season was finally inflicted by Bangers & Pash, who picked up an 8-3 win to mirror the scoreline from the previous time these two sides met. Rory Kelly and Lewis (just Lewis) grabbed three each on a night that AOTS will want to forget. Nice Buns B‘s only previous defeats this season had been against AOTS, but they conceded 5 second half goals without reply to lose 7-2 to Sevilla Lacatalent, with Tom Jackson scoring three of the Sevilla goals.


The title race is just about done and dusted in League One, as The McMuffin Men‘s 7-4 win over Inter Your Sister sees them go 6 points clear at the top. Rob Cresswell grabbed the three second half goals that secured the win in a keenly contested game. Polish Army lead the race for second place as they beat FC Stront Bakken 9-3, with Bania netting the bulk of the goals with 5. Team Tom have the games in hand but aren’t in the best of form, meaning that race could go to the wire, and they were beaten 5-2 by Step Brothers this week, with Josh Armitage scoring three.


We look to be on the brink of a true underdog story in the Sunday basement, as SK Six, who barely had a win to their name prior to the start of this season, are on the brink of the League Two title. They beat Pathetico Madrid 4-1 this week, with the goals spread out between 4 different players. Pathetico have been replaced in second place by Deportivo Lack Of Talent, who beat CA FC 5-3, a result which will make CA feel a little better after last weeks hammering! Rhys Moult scored 4, including the late goal that clinched the win, but they still sit 6 points behind SK.

In friendly action, The McMuffin’s stopped on to give Stockport Eagles a game, but the second game was a step too far for them as Eagles comfortably won 12-5 with Matt Kealy scoring 4 and Rob Piercy three.




Expected Toulouse picked up a thoroughly expected win this week to move to the brink of claiming the Monday Premiership title. There was no messing around as they raced into a 6-0 half time lead over Cheadle FC, and Joe Roche ended the match with 5 goals to his name and Waz Akram three as they eventually ran out 10-0 winners. Officially only Grand Street Wanderers can now catch Toulouse, as they came within minutes of a clean sheet of their own before conceding two late goals in a 5-2 win over Netsix & Chill, with Jay Bebbington’s three goals ending up being the difference between the sides.


Just the one Championship game took place this week as the season winds down, and it saw Ruby Kazan finish their season with 9 wins out of 10 as they beat Athletico Pathetico 12-6 in a game that had an end of season feel about it. Howie Thomas-Leech got 4 and Jordan Cunningham three as Kazan had what will presumably be their last comfortable game for a little while…

A couple of friendlies took place while we get the season finised off, and a new look Phantom Brazilians picked up an impressive 6-3 win over Nice Buns, with Daniel Clayton netting three times. The newly named duo of Ctrl Alt De Ligt (formerly Unprotected Cesc) and Trent The Fish (formerly Buff Daddy) also played out a fairly laid back fixture, with De Ligt comfortably winning 7-2 with just Fidelis Eberegbe helping himself to more than one goal.



Things they are a changing at the top of the Tuesday league. We have new leaders this week as Gangsta’s Allardyce were surprisingly comfortable 12-1 winners over For Fuch’s Sake, who drop down to 5th but should still make the cut when the league splits. It was hat tricks all round for Callum Thompson, Adam Needham and David Crozier as Gangsta’s won a game we were quite pleased we didn’t film! The game we did film featured two teams with 100% records since joining as Speshull City took on Snorting Lisbon. This one was also surprisingly one sided as Josh Gittings 7 goals helped Snorting to a 13-5 win that sees them go second.

A much tighter game saw Reece Nuttall claim the MOTM award and a clean sheet as Leavemyarsealona beat Michu At De Gea Ba 3-0, while Barcabona made their Ballers debut and gave a good account of themselves before eventually losing 7-2 to Stroke Titty, who struck three late goals to confirm the win. Jay Willingham got three of their goals, and Chris Edge got two on his Ballers return after a long time away!



The big two in the Wednesday league have moved into the prime positions as we continue to catch up games after the early season disruption. New Team stay top but for a little while we were wondering if they were going to slip up for the second week in a row as they trailed FC Rhino Ket 3-1 approaching the interval. They drew themselves level by the break and scored 5 unanswered goals in the second period to clinch an 8-3 win, with all 6 of their players netting, including ‘keeper Jonny Taylor who was given a run out in the second period. Rob Elliott and Matt Brown also grabbed two apiece. Wellspring looked to be cruising to a comfortable victory over Out Of Shape FC as they went 5-0 up in the opening 20 minutes, but the Shapers are nothing if not spirited, and they technically ‘won’ the rest of the game but left with a 9-5 defeat. Lewis Arden and Mike Cocks both scored three for Wellspring, with Adam Grayda scoring two of Out Of Shape’s goals. At the other end of the table, Stockport Eagles and Exeter Gently had just one win between them so far this season. It was Eagles who had that win coming into this weeks game, but Exeter took early control, going 3-0 up in the opening 20 minutes. Kristian Igo’s second goal in the second half, and Adam Robison’s last minute strike meant they held on for a 5-3 win as Eagles put on a spirited second half fight back.



We could have been writing about our very first Thursday night of action this week, but the EU elections dictated that the club was a polling station and we weren’t allowed in… There’s always next week!
