Thus ends the longest seasonI have ever known as a player and manager. If someone had said we'd be playing till 28th May I would have laughed in their face. However with the backlog of games that is how it has turned out. In February we welcomed back Darryll and John who made an instant impact as they secured a great cup victory for the first team. This in turn motivated and spurred us on in all competitions.


Safe to say the reserves have enjoyed a very successful season winning their first ever Cheshire league and cup double. This year has given us many ups and downs with players coming and going, but this reserve side has been consistent throughout! We were pushed to the league title by a very good Poynton side who appeared to spring from nowhere. It was nice to see two local sides in Cheshire league terms doing so well! We as with everyone had the occasional blip, losing 5-2 to Billinge away sticks in the memory. We finished top by 9 points, boasting the best defence and joint top scorers. Alex Airey picked up top scorer on the league and Josh Arnfield won Goalkeeper of the year, two fantastic achievements for two young lads.
The icing on the cake came in the form of the cup final. We face a well organised Knutsford team in the semis, edging them out on penalties. We played a tough Rylands team in the final and came out on top winning 3-0, I even managed to bag a goal myself! It was a glorious day with the sun shining and I would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone who came to watch us that day. We were presented with the League and Cup Trophies after the final and it was definitely the proudest moment in my average football career!!
This capped off a great end to a great season. The reserves is a cracking set of young lads who have bags of potential, they will only go from strength to strength. They have the added bonus of being at a club like Whaley Bridge with a great infrastructure which can only aid in their development and having a solid first team for them to aim to progress into! The futures bright.
