    The weather seemed to reflect the two directions our season could go after Saturday’s game. It was autumn and that means change. The results have been poor so far and we hadn’t yet scored a goal. So a change to this form would be a welcome relief. However, it was also the day of Storm Callum, bringing wild winds and wet weather and could in fact mean more misery for Murch and the Broughton first team if our poor form continued. However, the atmosphere in the dressing room beforehand seemed to suggest a change in our fortunes. Firstly, it was good to see the return of some familiar faces: in came Luke Taylor who seemed bright and shiny as he strolled up to the Myerscough dressing room. However, it might have just been the Firminoesque gnashers that gave off this impression. We also saw Adam Hayhurst return, who was in great spirits as, in his own words, he was “just glad to be out of the house”. We also saw Jamie return and coupled with a few faces from last year’s second team (Lewis, Imi, Will and Dan) suddenly the gloom of recent weeks seemed to vanish. Before the game, Murch set us up in a 4-1-4-1 formation to counteract the big forward of Walmer Bridge. A sensible and wise tactical decision if that was who were actually playing. However, when it was revealed to him that we were playing Eccleston, Murch, like all good tacticians, stuck by his guns and said he heard they also had a big powerful forward that we needed to starve of service (they didn’t). This and the forgotten keys meant a lottery ticket was decided pregame. The talk before the game was to start quickly. In previous games, we tended to look lethargic but with a strong bench, players could afford to work hard from the first minute as there were options available if we got tired. The warm up reflected this as we worked hard on getting the intensity high from the start. This was nearly wasted as a late and lethargic referee meant the kick off was delayed by half an hour. But, promisingly, we were still quick out of the blocks. And, two minutes in, a through ball from Alston found the superb run of Taylor who latched on to it, rounded the keeper and slotted it home. Our first goal of the season saw us go wild with Monksy shouting from the sidelines: “yay! We scored!” And a 35 year old man forgot his age and danced in the celebration in the style of Mané and Firmino. It was a welcome relief. And soon after it was two. A wonderful chipped ball over the defence by Micklethwaite fed Jamie who sped past the centre half and lashed the ball into the net. 2-0 after 7 minutes. It felt good. We then set about controlling the game. Eccleston tried to use the wind by pumping the ball over the top but the back four dealt with any high balls with ease and Will was never tested. Barnsey excelled in his sitting role and cut out any attempted passes into their forward line. Adam and Lewis as full backs were able to get on the ball and feed the midfield and forward line and we started to look in full control Soon it was three. A good move saw the ball fed out wide to Jamie. His delivery was deflected into the air where it fell to Alston on the edge of the 18 who hit a Scholes-like volley (not my words but the words of Tom Barnes) into the bottom corner of the net. Then, shamefully, the dancing happened again. 3-0 and we more than deserved it. At half time, Murch was full of praise for once. So far this season it has been a half time of well-deserved bollockings but with us working hard for each other and with the movement of Luke and the pace of Dan and Jamie out wide, we finally looked dangerous. But he urged us to be cautious as the next 10 minutes was crucial to stop them getting back in the game. And so we continued to work hard for each other and before long it was 4-0 thanks to a stunning strike from Micklethwaite. He picked up the ball in acres of space and, cutting across it, he drilled the ball over the keeper from all of 40 yards. 4-0 and game over. We then made use of our excellent bench. Pommy came on for the excellent Hayhurst whose one and only overlap seemed to take it out of him, before Imi replaced the tiring Jamie and Penny, another excellent call up from the seconds, replaced the very effective defensive shield of Barnsey. However, we then seemed to take our foot off the gas and do our best to give Eccleston a lifeline. Passes went astray, people stopped working and Taylor began bollocking. Luckily, we managed to get a grip and we scored a fifth. A foul on Imi saw Micklethwaite float a ball to Taylor who took it into his stride and fired past the cabbage-handed goalkeeper. Eccleston looked defeated and so Pommy, presumably feeling sorry for them, tried his best to give them a penalty. Luckily for us, our tired and cranky referee wasn’t up with play so it wasn’t given. That meant the clean sheet was still on and it would’ve been harsh if the excellent performances of the back four, and in particular Iddon and McGill who didn’t lose a header all game, weren’t rewarded. The icing on the cake was a hat trick for the returning Taylor. Dan’s trickery drew a foul, and, after Murch had confidently predicted to Adam that Luke would sky the freekick, he did the opposite and smashed it past the keeper for 6-0. After the final whistle, for once the changing room was a good place to be. Most came back to the Bull and MoM and worst moment was decided. Man of the Match was Luke closely followed by Scott Iddon. Worst moment went to me. Normally my dance shame came after a big night out in the dingy clubs of Preston. This was a new low and there was no alcohol involved. Maybe I was high from us scoring or from my wonder goal. I don’t know. Lottery ticket it is.  RA.

  GUILDHALL CUP ROUND 1
Sunshine and a trip to the seaside was Broughton’s Saturday. After the good result last week, the side went to Southport in optimistic mood, despite having lost 5-0 there a few weeks ago. Manager Murch, despite missing key players from the previous week, had a strong squad to choose from. He welcomed back Kev from his honeymoon and Andy Horn from physio-ing. We also saw the return of Newby, after his excellent season last season, and K, Greg and Mitch. Talk before the game was of working hard for each other and getting into the faces of the opposition. We lined up in 4-1-4-1 which allowed us to be solid in the middle of the park. Southport were a tough side but we matched them throughout. The whole team worked hard for each other in a very intensive first half of few opportunities. K battled hard up front and every time we went forward, we looked dangerous. However, neither side went close with final balls or miscontrol letting down both sides as each midfield battled for control as the game continued at breakneck speed. After 25 minutes, it seemed to swing towards us as they began to fall out with each other and we began to win first and second balls. Their number 10 decided he had enough and he walked off the pitch, took off his boots and decided he didn’t fancy the battle, leaving his teammates to pick up all his toys and his dummy. However, for all the dominance, Southport had the only clear chance of the first half. Their centre mid ran through and with Gilly in pursuit, seemed to stumble over and Greg smothered the ball. Cue outrage from Southport as they felt it should’ve been a pen. Murch was again full of praise for his side at half time. His talk was about continuing to work hard for each other but be a bit more patient with the ball. So we came out determined and looked dangerous as we pressed the home team and looked to hit them on the break. K and Tannock went close and Kev continued to shield the back four as we sought an opening goal. However, after some good pressure, Southport started to look most likely to score. Greg pulled off a great finger tip save to keep us level and we began to tire. But the back four held strong. Gilly and Scott continued their excellent partnership and headed anything away and Newby and Andy Horn continued to work hard without the ball and be an outlet for us going forward. However, neither side managed to break the deadlock so we went to extra time. Murch won worst moment for asking whether it was golden goal, baffling the younger players who weren’t born when it was last used. The lads had worked hard all game and with only one sub (thanks to a no show from a pissed up Walsh), it was Southport who scored the decisive goal. The pressure from midfield was no longer there and a ball over the top saw the striker race through and put it in, despite Greg getting down superbly to his first shot. Luckily, it wasn’t 1998 and we still had a chance to get back in it. We pushed various players forward in search of the equaliser in the second period of extra time. Dan, Lewis and Newby all went close but it was all to no avail and Southport held on. But, once again, we saw another improvement and hopefully we’ll continue getting better with each game. Gilly was named MoM with Kev and Lewis coming a close second. - RA

FC Bolton (a)  3 - 0   (ht.1-0)    
scorers :  G. Halse 2, L. Walsh
    Bolton was the location announced at the last minute by Murch for Broughton’s next game, and despite a late drop out, we went with confidence. We lined up in our now familiar formation of 4-1-4-1 with our manager and his dodgy hamstring starting at centre half. As has become a deliberate custom, Murch continued to try to take the worst moment pressure off his team by arriving with a wet kit, having been up late in the night washing it. In cold conditions, we started on fire. Pressing from midfield, we won the ball back well and created two great chances within the first 10 minutes. Dan used his pace to get behind the back line but couldn’t convert either chance. This is the tactic we employed for the rest of the game. Instead of trying to pass it short through our midfield, today was the day to take football back to the early nineties: run around at 100 miles an hour and whack the ball over the top for our strikers to run onto. However, it was a Bolton mistake that gave us our first goal. A short pass out saw Gav challenge their centre half. He won the ball and despite their keeper saving his first shot, he was sharp and smashed home the rebound. 1-0. However, we then took our foot off the pedal and the wind stopped us getting up the pitch. Soon, Bolton had a few good chances of their own, but Greg saved one well with his feet and poor finishing for the others meant we went into the break holding onto the lead. Half time was about using the wind and continuing to hit it over the Bolton back line - and that is what we did. We continued to work hard for each other and threaten on the break. Bolton were easily kept at bay as any time they managed to break through the back line and Greg threw themselves in the way. After soaking up the pressure, we got a second. A great ball from Lewis fed Gav down the right wing and his cross was bundled over the line by Walsh, back after ‘working’ last week. 2-0. Mitch came on for K for fresh legs and we continued to look comfortable. And then 5 minutes from the end we got the icing on the cake. A long ball over the top saw Gav race onto the ball. With the keeper stranded, he lofted the ball over his head and into the gaping net. A great performance, characterised by hard work, meant another good result. The cherry on the cake was the bargain Tiger beers (£7 a crate!) that Andy donated and the boys enjoyed. Let’s hope these performances continue. RA

Walmer Bridge (h)  1 - 1  (ht.1-1)    
scorers :  A. Whitaker
    18 players Murch had to select from for this game. 18! It was a sign that our recovery from such a poor start was continuing. Walmer Bridge was also the team that Murch thought we were playing when he dreamt up the 4-1-4-1 formation that marked the start of our turnaround in fortunes. His team talk for this was done 3 weeks ago. We started with Will in nets and had the back four of Hungover Horn, Gilly, Scott and Newby; Kev, Alston and Lewis were the midfield three; and Jamie, Micklethwaite and Adam were the front three. This left us with a strong bench of Aidy, Tigz and Mitch. Like in recent weeks, we started well and on the front foot, numerous chances were created-and missed - and if anybody looked likely to score it was us. Pressing from Adam forced a mistake from the back line and Alston’s cross into the box nearly resulted with Adam opening the scoring. Other chances came and went - Yates went close twice - but the scores stayed level. But soon we were very nearly punished. A ball over the top and Scott’s flat feet meant his only option was to tug on the shirt of their centre forward who went down on the edge of the box. The ref saw it as inside and Walmer Bridge had the penalty. Their left back jogged up confidently but Will sprang to his left and his strong arm kept the scores level. However, it was soon 1-0. Their left winger jinxed inside Andy, whose hangover was getting worse by the second, and he ran past numerous slide challenges before squeezing the ball under an unlucky Will. This spelt the end of Andy’s game as his age + pints of alcohol + staying up past midnight = dog rough. Aidy replaced him as we looked to hit back. We continued to press. However, some dubious linesman decisions stopped many of our attacks. However, it was the ref playing advantage for one of these offsides that caused the players to be particularly furious. As the Walmer Bridge goalkeeper dallied on the ball, Jamie stole in and put it in the net. The ref then gave the freekick. Micklethwaite and Yates were furious, with Jamie going into the book, despite a father-son chat from Murch before the game about rising above the anger. Micklethwaite also continued the protests but to no avail. However, we soon got an equaliser. Kev, as usual, won the ball in midfield and slipped in Adam. His pace saw him race onto the ball, the linesman kept his flag down, and he placed the ball into the net. 1-1. The halftime whistle went and as we talked about possible changes of system Micklethwaite continued to have his own father-son chat about the non-advantage decision: “Just admit you were wrong, ref, and we can all move on.” His teammates had moved on to halftime and the ref refused to admit he was wrong so Ryan and the ref are still not friends. The second half started the way the first ended. We pressed and looked to feed Adam and soon had the ball in the net. But it was rightly ruled out for offside. A good ball from Alston found Adam who sped into the box and instead of finishing it, he squared it to Jamie who was ahead of the ball. Still 1-1. Tigz came on for Alston to use his pace to get behind the defence but it was Walmer Bridge who started to push for the winner. Luckily, our back four held firm and restricted them to very few chances. Mitch came on for the tiring Jamie but we weren’t able to fashion many chances and in the end we were grateful for the point, continuing to show a solidity that was missing earlier in the season. RA

Ecclestone & Heskin Res (a)  2 - 3  (ht.2-0)    
scorers :  G. Halse, D. Makinson
    This was a game that nobody wanted to play. Arctic conditions and a poor pitch meant various players were praying for a late cancellation for any number of reasons: a pissed up ref not turning up; a huge puddle magically appearing in the middle of the pitch or the other team not turning up. However, there was no such luck and once we got changed Gilly summed it up: “Fuck it. We’re here now. This is proper amateur football.” We started in 4-4-1-1 formation with a late arriving Ryan Mick on the bench. Jamie bravely volunteered to go in nets and wore 16 layers of clothes, making him look an average weight. The rest of the team was as such: Andy H-Gilly-Newby-Kev; Liam, Tannock, Alston, Dylan; Crossthwaite; Nick up top. We started brightly. The midfield won the ball back well and our pace on the flanks meant we looked threatening every time we went forward. Soon our hard work paid off. Nick dropped deep to pick up the ball and let fly from 25 yards. It sailed over the keeper for the opening goal. The cold then claimed its first victim. Liam signalled to the bench that his legs stopped working so Ryan had to quickly peel off the numerous layers he had painstakingly put on to keep him alive on the sideline. However, the forced change led to our second goal. Ryan came into midfield and Andy went to the left and Dylan to the right. A throughball from Micklethwaite found Dylan’s penetrating run and he squeezed the ball into the corner of the net. 2-0. We then continued to press and look for a third. Andy was causing havoc down the left and Nick was linking up well up top. Dylan had a chance from a through ball from Alston and with the back four dealing with anything Eccleston had, we were looking good. The rare time Eccleston threatened saw Jamie pull of a full length save that Greg or Will would be proud of. At half time, the weather claimed its next victim as Dylan ran off to the warmth of his car, complaining of a sore leg. This left us down to ten until Doug could get himself warm and make an appearance for Broughton for the 52nd year in a row, putting various people to shame. Unfortunately, within a couple of minutes, Eccleston had pulled one back. A cross into the box found an unmarked player - exactly where our missing man would have been - and he put it into the net. We then managed to reorganise and began to dig in deep. Doug came on up top and I shifted out to the right. Once more, our togetherness showed as we worked hard to keep Eccleston at bay. However, they soon equalised despite our best efforts. At other times, this would have sparked a collapse but it actually galvanised us and we began to threaten. Alston moved back into the middle to stop their captain playing and we started to look dangerous. Andy hit the post with a scorcher and a goalmouth scramble from the corner nearly saw Doug and Gilly bundle the ball over the line. If anybody was going to win, it looked us. But, it was not to be. Their sub, who spent most of his 15 minutes on the pitch complaining about the colour of his legs, found a bit of space at the edge of the area. Despite the close attentions on Kev and Gilly, he managed to get his shot off and it went straight into the top corner. After the game, it was a rush to get changed and get the heaters on in the car. Nick looked like he was on the verge of losing fingers as he struggled to get his kit off, whereas most looked like they were glad they played, despite the result. It’s a shame lost players at a key time in the game otherwise we would have got a result. RA

New Longton Rovers  (a)  1 - 0    (ht.0-0)    
scorers :  L. Taylor
    After a cheese and alcohol filled Christmas, what the lads didn’t want was a heavy and bobbly pitch that stuck to your boots and sucked your energy. However, that is exactly what we got. However, luckily we had a decent squad to cope with it. We lined up in our prettier blue kit (Barnsey) 4-4-1-1. Jamie, whose cat-like performance against Eccleston gave him the bug for going in nets again, started in goal (I won’t mention to two missed open net pens in the warm up, Jamie). Andy Horn, Scott, a tiny-eyed Gilly and Newby was the back four. Dan, Kev, Lewis, Andy was the midfield with Ryan in front of them and the returning great white-toothed hope, Luke Taylor, up top. I was an emergency sub and Robbo and the very tanned Barnsey completed the bench. Murch, whose thinking seemed clearer now that he was doing dry January, spoke before the game on keeping a tight shape to the team and getting the back four to squeeze up the pitch so we can avoid Luke being isolated. However, it was New Longton who started brighter as they pressed us well and looked to get the ball forward to their big centre forward. We struggled to adapt to the pitch and kept giving the ball back to New Longton. We then lost Tannock who had been struggling. Barnsey came on and immediately tried to snap into tackles to get us back into the game but we failed to keep the ball. However, strangely, it took a few comedy events to help us turn the tide. Ryan missed an open net, Andy took one full in the balls and Barnsey got snipered. And this seemed to settle us down. Soon we were playing balls into the channels for Luke and Andy and really started the threaten. For all their early play, New Longton failed to create much and we went into half time confident and unlucky not to be one or two up. Murch, whose skin and eyes continued to get brighter and brighter every hour of dry January, spoke about using the channels to release our pace and get the winning goal. And that’s what we tried to do. Scott and Gilly won most things in the air to stop New Longton getting forward and tried to get us up the pitch, despite Scott not being able to hear the shouts of ‘Get us up’ because of some tractors. Newby looked to release the ball to Andy and Luke, and Kev started to be horrible and pick up the pieces in the middle. Murch made a change to bring on Robbo into the centre to make us more solid and stop them breaking, and Barnsey went out to the right. And it was this change that brought about the winner. Robbo picked up a stray pass and fed Barnsey. He brought it inside and fed Luke in the left hand channel. His pace took him past his man and his finished coolly into the far corner. As the pitch started to take its toll and the tractors continued to drown out the shouts of ‘Get out’ from the sideline we dropped deeper and had to sustain real pressure for the last 15 minutes. New Longton forced corner after corner and swung in some dangerous deliveries. However, Gavin Halse was in fine form and continued to get his fists and hands to everything. Andy Horn and Gilly worked hard to deal with the threats down our right hand side and, once again, the boys worked hard for each other. Eventually, the ref blew for full time and the boys walked off, having blown away the Christmas cobwebs with a well-earned victory. RA

LANCASTRIAN BRIGADE CUP Rd 1
    It might by Dry January for some, but it was raining goals for Broughton and Gav Halse at this week’s fixture. After the hard fought victory on a cow field last week, confidence was high, especially playing on the carpet of Myerscough. Murch had another good squad to choose from, despite missing Luke, Andy and Dan from last week. We started in our 4-2-3-1 formation, with Adam, who needed to get out of the house again, in nets; Andy, Gilly, Scott and Newby at the back; Kev and Barnes were in the midfield; Alston, Micklethwaite, Hudson in front of them and Jamie up top. This left us with Robbo on the bench with Aidy. Murch’s instructions were to match them for work rate and keep our positions and then our ability would shine through. With our strong back line, we always stand a chance of winning. Wilbraham started well. They were well organised and snapped into tackles, but the team heeded Murch’s words. We worked hard for each other to get the ball back and any time they got near to our goal the back line stopped them in their tracks, winning tackles and everything in the air. As well as this, everything seemed to knit together on the ball. Jamie’s runs into the channel stretched their back line and gave the players behind him lots of space to get on the ball and make things happen. Soon the pressure told. Micklethwaite’s corner was floated into the box and Gilly hung in the air like a white Michael Jordan and powered a header into the top corner. It was no more than we deserved. As we continued to piece together lovely moves, it seemed it was only a matter of time before we scored a second. Chances were created and last ditch challenges or good saves prevented us getting another. However, our pressure finally told. Gav* found himself in acres of space and as the defence stood off him, he let fly with a low drive that squirmed under the keeper. 2-0. Soon it was three. A free kick was awarded on the left about 25 yards out. With Gav’s* confidence up, he let fly - It seemed to be flying wide until a deflection guided it past the keeper and into the far corner. 3-0. At half time, Murch was full of praise for the team. He suggested we soak up any pressure from them and hit them on the break. Robbo came on for Mitch to tighten up the middle and Barnsey moved to the right and me to the left. Wilbraham predictably came at us and started to try and intimidate us with aggressive tackling. However, we continued to trust each other and pass the ball around them, with Ryan linking play, and we looked for the pace of Gav* over the top. The defence, who have been excellent all season, continued to win everything and anything that got though was flawlessly handled by Adam in the net. Murch’s instructions were then carried out perfectly. From Wilbraham’s corner, Newby’s clearing header found Robbo. His pass to Kev set him down the right and he played a perfect ball (one of many delicious passes he hit that afternoon) across the box for Gav* to hit a deflected shot into the net. 4-0. The game then descended into violence. Wilbraham, frustrated that they couldn’t get near the ball all afternoon, started to fly into challenges and we began to match them. A full blooded challenge from Robbo, who we know loves a tackle, resulted in a booking and each team gave as good as they got as Wilbraham’s heads seem to go. Then we had a flashpoint. A hard tackle from Newby saw their number 14 launch himself like a bull towards Newby. With no matador’s cape, Newby had to channel his inner WWE and body slam him to the floor. Then it was chaos. A few of their players stormed in as the windmilling started. Gilly, in true hero fashion, threw himself on top of Newby to protect one of our youngest, getting punched in the ear in the process. Various other scuffles happened as the ref struggled to keep control. Eventually everybody listened to Ryan Mick’s shouts of calm down and the ref said he could have sent four players off. Credit to both teams and the ref as players managed to get hold of things and stop the game descending into a violent farce. Soon after this, it was 5. Barnsey, like the rest of the team all game, pressed their centre half and he panicked and gave the ball to Gav*. He sprinted through and slipped a lovely finish inside the near post. 5-0. Aidy then replaced the excellent and consistent Andy Horn at right back and we continued to look like scoring with every attack. On more than one occasion, if Jamie had held his run, he would have been clear through as, with no pressure on the ball from them, our midfield were given plenty of time to pick passes. There was time for one more flash of brilliance from yours truly. My hips and legs thought they were 25 again and with a quick turn and one two with Micklethwaite, I cut inside and placed a pass into the path of Gav*. He raced on to it and drew the keeper before lifting it over his dive and putting it into the far right corner. 6-0. At the final whistle, Murch summed it up: “We matched them and more and everything knitted together.” After the scrappy victory of last week, we won with style this week. Our work rate was complemented by sharp and incisive football and we looked good. Gav* was man of the match and nobody could find any worst moments. Oh, apart from Barnsey not being able to go to the pub as he had to meet his sister’s new boyfriend. Luckily, for everybody, Barnsey said he was a sound guy. On to next week. *Names have been changed to annoy Jamie.  RA

Canberra Corinthians (a)  3 - 2  (ht.0-0)    
scorers :  J. Yates, M. Newby, D. Edwards
    With a full squad to choose from and the return of a couple of regulars, Murch had that managerial headache that everybody welcomes: who is going to make the team and who is he going to leave out. However, as he tried to tell us and give us our instructions, he was constantly drowned out by Jamie going on about the new love of his life, Sharon, and the most magical night of her mature life. Despite the squad urging him to keep the details private, he continued to recount in great detail his escapades. Instead of learning the tactics for the game, the team learnt Jamie’s tactics of seduction. Instead of our positions for the game, we learnt all the positions Jamie tried out in the early hours, as the rest of the squad slept. And instead of shirt numbers, we learnt the numbers of Shaz’s anatomical features, including, weirdly, her collar size. Eventually, Murch managed to keep him quiet with a promise that we would all attend the wedding. We lined up 4-2-3-1, with Will back between the sticks; Andy, Gilly, the returning Aidy and Newby giving us a strong back line; Tannock and Barnsey sitting with Ryan in front of them; me on the right, Andy Crossthwaite left and Jamie up top. The talk was to build on the great work of last week: Match the work rate and earn the right to play. However, on a boggy pitch, we failed to start well. Canberra won first and second balls and burst through our midfield at will. Jamie was left isolated and anytime we managed to get the ball back, we gave it away. Luckily the strong defence kept their strikers out but we continued to be below par for much of the half. Any joy came from getting the ball forward to Jamie or the wide men quickly but we failed to create much as too often we failed to get up to support each other and moves often broke down. However, we did have most of the ball and Canberra barely troubled Will. At half time, talk was to be more compact and push the line up further, stopping Jamie becoming isolated. We started the second half brightly. Our work rate returned and we started to get in behind. Jamie and Andy had a couple of good chances and Ryan started to link play well. K came on for Lewis and, in the words of their manager, I changed the game by coming off and letting Dan come on to get in behind the full back. It was from here that we opened the scoring. A ball inside the full back saw Dan get in behind. The keeper came rushing out, and although no one on the sideline could work out what Dan was trying to do, the keeper brought him down. Jamie stepped up and dispatched the penalty with ease, dedicating his goal to his love Sharon. Canberra’s heads seem to drop then and K and Barnsey started to grab hold of midfield. Any balls that got past them were easily dealt with by the back line and before long, it was two. Luke Parker, a sub for the ever dependable Horn, strode forward and gave the ball inside to Ryan. A square ball to Newby saw him take a touch and then curl the ball round the keeper and inside the front post. 2-0. Soon it was three. Dan picked the ball up 25 yards out and let loose a vicious shot that flew into the net. 3-0. Canberra’s heads dropped and we looked in total control. Mitch came on for Andy and it turned into a keep ball exercise as Canberra got frustrated and flew into tackles. One move contained 20 passes before Ryan shinned it to their full back. However, we eased off too much. Their left winger looked sharp and his dribbling caused Luke to bring him down. However, their centre mid blazed it over. And that should have finished them off. But we did not heed the warning. A dangerous cross from their left winger saw their centre mid redeem himself with a far post finish. This seemed to make them grow in strength and we began to panic and look tired. Soon it was 3-2 as a misplaced pass saw them capitalise and grab another back. We looked tired and dazed and with a couple of minutes left, we were in danger of throwing it away. Luckily, we managed to reorganise and keep the ball better to see out the game for the win. As has been the case for the last 10 games or so, a solid back line and a good squad of players saw us get the result. The days of August seem to be well and truly behind us and Broughton seem to be on their way up now. Finally, there was a bit of great news. No, not the engagement of Jamie and Sharon, although that is on the horizon, but Gilly welcomed Eidee McGill into the world. Congratulations to the McGills from all at Broughton! Shame you didn’t take the lads’ suggestion of Sharon Gavin for the name. RA

scorers :  A. Best 2, A. Pennington, I. Vohra, Regan, K. Cummins
    Its been an upsy downsy sort of start to the season with mixed results in pre season and a definite bumpy start last week. This week was much better and the team , on paper, looked full of energy and dynamic – and that’s how we played. An experimental set up of 4-4-2 saw a new midfield of Regan, Tannock, Edwards and Pennington, with Best and Vohra up front, but it was the back 4 of Bowerman, Kenyon Howse and Kev C that were called on in the first few minutes as Appley exerted some pressure. We saw that out and started to push forward, and when we did it was immediately apparent that our attack had more than the Appley defence. Tannock especially had a top game and linked well with Edwards and , with the centre mid successfully buttoned up, we had time to press forward. Regan had the first chance but saw his one on one effort smothered by the keeper, but the chances kept coming and after 15 mins Pennington broke free and buried a shot in the bottom corner. 5 minutes later Regan made amends for the previous miss when having been set free by Tannock he cut back in and drove a shot under the Appley keeper. Kev C capped a great half for himself and the team with a solo effort when , having won the ball on the half way line , he broke free played a 1-2 with Best and then beat the keeper with a fierce shot. Talk at half time was of maintaining the pressure . Boff and Buxton joined the fray, but the pressure continued. Sprake in nets provided an outlet for any defensive pressure that would have gladdened Pep Guardiola and on one occasion that Appley did really threaten pulled of a worldy save to keep things at 3-0. That scare apart the 2nd half belonged to our forwards as Besty bagged 2 and threatened more -and Vohra got a reward for hard work by bagging our 4th goal. The season is under way. db

scorers : A. Best, L. Tannock
    On an unusually decent pitch at Worden park (just wait till January) we faced up to a Walton side unbeaten so far. Vaughan was missing in nets but Greg Lopko was an equally talented replacement and with a very solid ( !! ) looking back four of Horrocks Catlow, Howse and Kenyon we started off on what we knew would be a challenging afternoon. Despite best efforts Walton clearly had the better of the midfield battle and it became a tussle of attack versus defence and whether the one could outwit the other. For most of the half we held defensively strong and only a couple of mistakes cost the goals and, whilst that was happening, we did have chances. Tannock released Welch with a threaded ball that Welch only just failed convert then a three man move ended with Edwards beating the keeper only to rebound off the post Half time came and changes were needed. We switched to a 3 man centre midfield with Boff on to steady the ship. Immediately things looked much more under control – though Best was now left more isolated. Edwards won a penalty when up ended as he burst past a defender and Best converted coolly to get us back into the game. Sprake joined the fray and immediately had an impact as a serious of freekicks were won – but sadly not converted. Walton restored their 2 goal advantage but with 5 mins to go another clever move released Tannock in the box and he drove it under the advancing keeper. We were on top at this stage but just didn’t have the time to make it pay. db -

    Having Lost Tannock and Edwards to the 1st team a re-organisation was required - especially in midfield where the new combo of Smith and Ryan provided a duo high on experience (but dare I say) lowish on pace. The old heads however had a standout game and dominated midfield for almost the entire game. Howse and Kenyon were equally dominant in the centre of defence and with that platform we began the game on a positive basis. The chances seemed to come almost from the off and it was no surprise when after only 10 minutes Jack Welch cut in from the wide left leaving 2 defenders in his wake and the shot from the edge of the box rattled into the bottom corner. Best and Vohra worked hard up front- and that movement allowed us to play simply and effectively through midfield and for once the opposition were left chasing the shadows. Vohra came closest after beating 2 men in the box – but his shot came back off the post and ran back into the hands of a relieved keeper. Slightly cooler heads could and probably should have seen us well ahead but the chances went and New Longton equalised with a fast well constructed break that left keeper Gregory exposed and with no chance of saving a clinical finish. This had really only been the one time that we had been over run, so the half time team talk was up beat. The second half began well and improved throughout. After only 5 minutes Best released Vohra into the box. The keeper saved well, but Welch was again on hand to notch his and our second. 10 minutes later our best team move of the season started with a cool clearance from Gregory to Pomfret. The ball moved well through midfield and was finished by Pomfret who had shown a burst of pace unseen for a while to get on the end of a move he had started on the edge of our own box. By now the confidence was oozing and all sorts of unlikely people started to appear in attacking positions. Vohra , Smith, Todd and Howse came close, full backs and defenders pushed on and got involved and the fourth goal came as a result of yet more good work from Best. db

scorers :  A. Best 2, I. Vohra 2
    Not sure where to start in describing this one. If I tell you that we dominated the middle hour of the game and won that portion 4-0- then you will have a feel for the diabolical beginning and end to the game. We had the usual raft of people missing, but with 2 subs and a team high on experience we were still hopeful of building on the good result of last week. 15 minutes in we were 3-0 down and all our hopes seemed to be in tatters. The strange thing was that in that period we had played some good football and created chances, but when Newman attacked they did at a pace we seemingly couldn’t match and as a team we have to look at our desire to do the dirty stuff. It always seemed likely that we would get a goal, especially with Pendle and Best working so hard up front, and our fightback started with a Best penalty after 25 minutes. 5 minutes later Vohra showed skill and determination to take the ball past 3 defenders and when faced with a one on one with the keeper placed it confidently in the bottom corner. The half time team talk was a lot more upbeat than seemed possible 30 minutes before. The 2nd half started well and good work by Best created a chance for Vohra and his great shot from 20 m levelled the game and then Best again outwitted the Newman defence and finished a the chance to complete the turnaround. At this point we were relatively untroubled defensively and we again went close and the confident football continued. Will Vaughan in nets had to pull out 2 high class saves as the game started to wobble and then we went into self destruct mode again. The problem really wasn’t effort on our part but mainly that the average age of the 2 teams would have been about 10 years different. Suddenly runs being made from midfield and wide weren’t being picked up or matched and we again conceded very poor goals to create a depressing end to the game. A bout of unwarranted hysteria from management didn’t help and was regretted immediately. db

Appleby Bridge Res (a)  2 - 2  (ht.1-1)  
scorers :  A. Best, L. Robinson
    In keeping with the Halloween mood, strange things were happening in the Broughton camp. For the first time in living memory a good number of the first team squad all declared themselves available at the same time and so Murchy was able to share some of his group with the 2nd team. As a result Walsh re joined the team and Makinson and Robinson, making their first appearance of the season, were also available. The game started off evenly balanced – and stayed that way for the whole of the 90 minutes. Playing down wind, Appley Bridge kept us under pressure through the long clearances from their keeper, but also by attacking fast through centre midfield. At the same time Best and Vohra also looked dangerous up front for us – so it was a question of who gave way first. Sadly we succumbed to yet another break from midfield and Appley took a deserved lead. For 10 minutes we held on. Boff and Kenyon performed some heroic last ditch defending and Adam Huddleston, recently returned as wide midfield/keeper, showed safe hands to keep us in the game. We changed formation after 30 minutes to try to get control of midfield and almost immediately started to look more balanced. Ryan and Buxton worked together well to bottle up the centre and this freed Liam to start to find spaces and get our attack moving. Dillon Makinson on the left was our most dangerous outlet and a number of chances went close before Robinson brought us level after good work by Best. The second half started equally well and the Best/Robinson partnership again worked well, this time a delicate through ball was decisively finished by Best and for 10 minutes we threatened to run away with it, but some wild finishing and rushed passing was our downfall. Appley equalised after a corner was only half cleared, an attacker on the edge of the box was left unmarked by sloppy defending – and that attacker finished well. We had only ourselves to blame for the slightly panicky last 20 minutes. Again the game could have gone either way had both sides finished more calmly - but a draw was a fair result. db

Standish St. Wilfreds Res  (h)  3 - 3  (ht.0-1)  
scorers :  A. Best 2, L. Walsh
    In reaching for a cliché to begin the report the best I can suggest is that we pulled this one out of the fire. We started with a 4-1-4-1 formation with Ryan in the defensive midfield position, this in an attempt to stop our past frailty when faced with fast opposition breaks out of midfield. This, along with a couple of new centre midfielders on the shape of Hudson and Mason meant we started the game in somewhat of an exploratory status - ie. trying to work out who was doing what. It explained the slightly shaky first 10 minutes, but once we settled it meant that by and large we looked defensively strong. There was no doubt that Standish had a decent outfit and moved the ball about well, but generally the possession was blunted by determined defending. Kenyon and Boff were outstanding and Gav Gregory as stand in keeper showed a safe pair of hands. Standish took the lead from one of our few midfeld lapses but we did threaten and Best, as always, worked hard and Hudson, Vohra and Welch all had attempts on goal. At 1-0 down at half time we were in the game, but a couple of goals relatively early in the second half seemed to put the game well beyond reach as Standish knocked the ball about with confidence. It all changed with 25 minutes to go. Ryan released Welch down the right and his through ball to Best was taken on and hammered in off the far post. We suddenly started to play with twice as much confidence and intent. Another great break lead to a corner, and in a goal mouth scramble that followed, Walsh forced the ball home. We went for the equaliser and all sorts of people started to appear in attacking positions. Gregory in nets was keen to join in but reluctantly accepted it was probably best if he didn’t, and, with 3 minutes to go the ball was driven into the feet of the ever available Best. Defenders panicked and again dumped Best on the floor leading to a last minute free kick. The wall was formed and the tension spread as Best lined up the free kick and - in a finish resembling that of Beckhams free kick against Greece - the ball was curled into the top corner. Cue mad celebrations and a deserved point. DB

Standish St. Wilfreds Res  (a)  1 - 4  (ht.0-2)  
scorers :  A. Best
    Following last weeks highly creditable fightback against the league leaders, the last thing we needed really was a reverse fixture against the same opponents. The usual player merry go round saw 4 of last weeks team missing – with only the return of Rossi after a long injury absence as a counter balance and hence we went to the fixture with only the manager as sub (they had 5). This was ultimately to be decisive, but we started brightly, if somewhat defensively, as the game played itself out as a carbon copy of the previous week. Our plan to defend and frustrate – then break quickly worked for 20 minutes but was undone by a precision ball through the middle and a cool finish. Truth be told Standish did create more chances than last week but stout defending from the back 4 of Walsh Kenyon Boff and Pommy held firm. Sprake in nets pulled off some good saves and we rode our luck till just before half time. Mitch was clearly fouled as he went to clear a ball, but the ball was rolled to a Standish centre back who hammered an unstoppable shot into the top corner. We had shown enough to suggest that we could get something from the game and when Best was fouled in the box 10 minutes into the 2nd half it looked like last weeks result might be repeated. Best scored the penalty (just) and for 10 minutes we pushed on and had the balance of the play. It couldn't last. Standish were able to field a herd of subs whereas our lads continued to fight hard to stay in the game and as our pace slowed, Standish scored 2 more and fully deserved the win. db

Anchorsholme Res (h)  3 - 3  (ht.0-2)  
scorers :  A. Best 3
    The christmas must have been a good one for most of our lads – judging by the slow start that lasted for most of the first half. The defence was bolstered by Paul Howse volunteering for goal keeper duty and his steady presence plus the efforts of Horrocks, Kenyon, Boff and Catlow kept us more of less in the game as the first half ground it's way through to half time. Truth be told, all the team put in a significant defensive effort, its just that going forward we hardly created anything of note, and very few cohesive moves that troubled the Anchorsholme defence. Their number 6 ran the game and though we tried hard to stem the flow a 2 goal deficit was about right. At half time we re-organised and the second half was a different matter. The confidence to pass and move started to seep back into the team and as it did two things happened. Firstly we clearly started to enjoy the game more and secondly we pushed our opponents back and started to expose their weaknesses. Best and Welch were our star men going forward. Welch employed a cunning ploy to outwit their defence. When he didn’t have the ball he looked in a permanent state of semi collapse - but as soon as the ball came near he ran their defence ragged. Best as ever lead the line brilliantly and he got his reward with a hat trick. The first – a penalty – came from the Welch / Best partnership and a last ditch mistimed defensive lunge. The second with 20 minutes to go came as a direct result of pressure exerted by Gav Gregory and , having won the ball back in the box he had the time to pick out Best for a tap in. Besty's third with 8 minutes to go was another super 25 yard free kick. As we pushed forward Anchorsholme did add to their first half tally and at 3-3 with 5 minutes to go it could have gone either way. Gregory and Pomfret both went close and Anchsorsholme hit the post, but a draw was probably a fair result. db

Ribchester Rovers Res (a)  3 - 1  (ht.1-0)  
scorers :  A. Best, C. Todd, U. Bux
    Horrible weather, even worse pitch, but a good result. One look at the pitch told us that wasn’t going to be a classic, so it was all about setting us up to deal with the conditions and play to our strengths. In actual fact and despite the pitch, it wasn’t a bad game as both sides had significant spells of control of the first half. We set up with a solid 4-4-1-1, the intention being to keep midfield and defence solid whilst giving Best and Bux the freedom to do their thing. For the first 20 minutes this worked well and we looked comfortable in the middle and the front 2 both looked dangerous. Welch broke from wide a couple of times and went close. Kenyon rose semi majestically to connect with a corner - only to see it hit the outside of the post and it seemed only a matter of time. Things changed when Luke Mason received a blow to the goolies and had to temporarily retire to the touchline. The resulting re-organisation didn’t work and for the last 20 minutes Ribchester were on top and our defensive qualities were required. A rash challenge gave away a penalty but Keeper Howse made the first of a number of critical contributions to save the initial spot kick and the follow up. Hard work and concentration kept us in the game and at the end of the half we had started to settle – so much so that we started to push on again and from a corner Best was able to use the wind to curl a corner directly into goal Half time allowed us to properly re-organise with Tood coming on out wide, Boff replaced an injured Kenyon in defence and Mason (goolies now massaged !! back to full fitness) returned to centre midfield. The next 45 mins was evenly balanced in midfield, but Best, Umar and Welch suddenly began to find much more space and despite the wind and pitch we played some good attacking football. Our second goal came when good interplay released the ever dangerous Jack Welch. Having skipped past his marker yet again his pass across the 6 yard line was met and powered into the bottom corner by Todd. 10 minutes later Umar Bux went on another of his long mazy runs – this time ending in a shot squeezed into the top corner and - we looked comfortable at 3-0. As to be expected Ribchester rallied but for most of the last 15 mins our defence stood firm – Ryan especially seemed to be on the end of everything - until with a couple of minutes to go a swirling corner was finished well to deny us a deserved clean sheet. We will take the win though. db

Wesham  (h)  2 - 4  (ht.2-2)  
scorers :  G. Gregory, U. Bux
    A cold, dank day but good for football and we approached the game with a good squad and a degree of confidence after last weeks win. Kenyon was unavailable through injury, but pommy was back and we lined up with the 4-4-2 of last week. It became a battle of formations for most of the 1st half. Wesham lined up with 3 at the back giving an extra man in midfield, but we backed our front 2 of Best and Bux to do damage against their defence – and so it panned out as we looked under pressure in midfield but dangerous on the break. Wesham struck first using the extra man in midfield to fashion an opening that Howse was unable to stop. We equalised 10 minutes later. Best and Bux linked well in the box and Gav Gregory buried the ball when it was laid back to him. Wesham went ahead after a good move released their wide man in on goal, but again we equalised - this time Umar Bux finished well into the bottom corner. At the break we changed to 5 in midfield to counter the extra man and to a degree it worked. Their midfield now had less time and we won the ball back earlier but constantly failed to retain it for long enough to create openings or get support to Besty up front. Wesham again went ahead with 20 minutes to go - a rubbish goal from our perspective as slack marking left a man free and the ball passed through a sea of legs to put us behind. The 5 in midfield clearly wasn’t working so we switched back to the starting formation and again started to create. Bux , Best and Welch all had good chances and normally would have had at least one goal had it not been for some outstanding saves from the Wesham keeper. The last 15 minutes was a battle and basically Wesham were stronger in all senses of the word and pressure told as we conceded a poor goal from a corner.db
