A well below par Manchester Corinthians went down 2-1 against FC United today, 14th April 2018. Our opponents used the space far better than us and were certainly more mobile. Their second goal had to be seen to be believed, best described as a Norman Wisdom moment.

On Thursday 29th March 2018, Manchester Corinthians played Roach Dynamos in a friendly at the Heywood Sports Village. The Corinthians came out 4-1 winners with goals from John Bee 2 and Dave Brooks 2.

Corinthians player Mick Tarpey, playing for his own club Roach Dynamos, scored the Dynamos goal. With a few players missing tonight, the Corinthians put in a good performance with some excellent passing and space finding.

Some excellent football today, 25th March 2018, in the Blackburn Rovers WFC friendly, with great passing and movement, especially from the over 65 lads, who were really impressive. Paul O’Neil grabbed the goal. We should do well in the National Tournament in the over 65 category.

Our Over 60’s team A, after a great win in Leeds two weeks ago, were sloppy in defence and some poor marking cost us the game. Team B, like the over 65’s, played some great football, with Steve Hyde very impressive in goal. Mick Tarpey was the scorer. Teams A and B are not first and second teams, it’s just a way of differentiating between them.

Results

Manchester Corinthians Over 60’s Team A 0-1 Blackburn Rovers Over 60’s
Manchester Corinthians Over 60’s Team B 1-0 Blackburn Rovers Over 60’s

Blackburn are a very good side and the games were played in the right spirit. All in all it was a satisfactory day for the new Manchester Corinthians. It was also good to see two of our injured players, Alan Thompson and Stewart White, supporting the teams today. Thanks also to Keith Fowler for refereeing the games.

Manchester Corinthians Over 60’s played their first ever competitive game against Leeds Titans today, Sunday 11th March 2018. The final score in a hard fought game against a very strong Titans team was a 9-5 victory for the Corinthians. Paul O’Neil 4, Dave Wilde 2, Kevin Williams 2 and John Bee 1, were the scorers.

72 year old supersub Steve Colesby

Considering the strength of the opposition and that this was the first time the team had played together it was a satisfactory performance. An early injury to Alan Morton left the Corinthians with a bare squad of six. Thankfully, 72 year old Steve Colesby who only came to watch, donned his kit and strengthened the defence at a time when we were under pressure.

All the lads played well today and we looked a really strong team which can only get better. With another seven in the squad who were unavailable today the outlook is positive and it will be interesting to see how far we can progress in the National Over 60’s Tournament.

Thanks to the lads who turned out today, John Bee, Ron Blakeley, Steve Colesby, Val Mears, Alan Morton, Paul O’Neil, Dave Wilde and Kevin Williams.
