Dynamo vs Urmston Town Tigers
The last local derby of the season and a chance for Dynamo to register a league double against Town. However, they would have to do it without Ryan and Joe who were unfortunately unable to play.
Meds started brightly and were pressing Town back into their own half. Despite some good approach play though it was tough to create clear chances against a packed and determined Town defence. Jordon managed to get a shot away but the keeper saved. The breakthrough came when a corner was half cleared to Kieron and he whipped the ball back into the box. It hit a Town defender but he couldn't clear and Jonny 'Bravo' latched onto the loose ball and powered a first time shot past the keeper. Jack and Kieron were excellent dealing with Town counter attacks and in midfield Harvey and Jonny were linking really well. On the left Rheice was full of running and almost doubled the lead ghosting past two challenges before firing into the side netting. With the half coming to a close Jordon latched onto a clearance and his shot was too hot for the keeper to handle creeping into the net for 2-0/
HT 2 -0
Town were more adventurous in the second period as they tried to get back into the game. For the most part Kieron and Jack were comfortable but towards the end of the game as legs began to tire and the lack of subs took its toll, Town won a couple of free kicks. Liam dealt with the first one but the second cannoned of Rheice and into the net. At the other end Meds had a couple of chances on the break but couldn't find a third goal.
A good performance with some intelligent passing - well done.
Goals- Jonny and Jordon
MOM – Jordon - A tough job up front on his own but found another important goal for us.

Dynamo vs North Walkden
Two days after their first home defeat of the season, Dynamo had the chance to get the loss out of their system with another home game. This time against league leaders North Walkden.
Dynamo began in determined fashion and nearly scored in the opening minute. Kieron won the ball and fed Harvey on the right, Harvey played it inside to Jonnny who slipped the ball forward to Jordon who set it for Ryan who's first time shot clipped the outside of the post before rolling wide - what a team goal that would have been. A couple of minutes later and Jordon escaped the attentions of his powerful marker and lashed a shot across goal from wide on the left. The keeper did well to parry and the ball ran to safety. As North Walkden looked to counter Jack and Kieron were giving close attention to their strikers and not letting them get a foothold in the game. The match was developing into an intriguing midfield battle with Ryan, Jonny and Harvey giving everything and their North Walkden counterparts working equally hard. Walkden won a couple of corners but strong Meds headers meant they came to nothing. As the half came to a close Kieron met a dangerous cross with his head and the ball looped up an fortunately just wide of the goal. From the resulting corner Walkden thought they had opened the scoring when the ball flicked of a player and past Liam. Ryan had other ideas though controlling the ball on the line and then calmly hooking it away to safety.
HT 0 -0
The second half settled into a similar pattern as the first with both teams trying to assert themselves but struggling to create clear cut chances. Jordon was locked in a battle with 2 Walkden centre halves but managed to wriggle free and fire a shot from distance just wide. Then Joe made good progress down the left but his cross evaded everybody. At the other end Liam had to deal with a powerful shot from distance, gathering at the second attempt as a Walkden attacker looked to profit from the rebound. Ryan almost played Jordon in but a defender did well to clear at he last second. Then Jonny crossed and Harvey met the bal with a controlled half volley. He couldn't quite get enough poer on it though and the keeper saved well. North Walkden then threatened from a corner. The ball squirming wide after a bit of a scramble. Then Kieron went close latching onto a half cleared corner and firing a low effort just past the post. With five minutes left Jordon squeezed past the attentions of his marker who in his desperation to stop him shooting tried to barge him off the ball and conceded a free kick. It was on the touchline to the left of the goal and a good distance out. Jordon placed the ball and then smashed the ball left footed towards goal. The ball arrowed and then dipped just at the right moment flying right across goal and into the far corner. Great hit as Alan Hansen would say! - cue wild celebrations amongst the Dynamo faithful. Walkden tried to push forward to find an equaliser but Meds stood strong and had a half chance for a second when another good team move resulted in Jordon firing just wide.
An absolute stunning team performance and a great game between 2 very strong committed team. North Walkden's manager said we were definitely the best team they have played this season - Well done boys.
MOM – Ryan, He played on the left, he played on the right - That boy Ryan he ran his socks off all night!! Great clearance off the line, looked to get forward and won so many important tackles.

Dynamo vs Moorside (Written by Howard and Liam)
On a sunny spring morning, Dynamos turned up at Flixton Fields looking to continue their winning way and close the gap with league leaders Walkden, but Moorside Rangers had other ideas. Although Meds went straight on the attack from the kick off, with Jordon and Rhiece linking well, Dynamos were struggling to find their flowing football. Ranger’s attackers were very quick on the break and with ten minutes gone they took the lead. A through ball from the midfield found Rangers attacker who cut in from the left wing and first time shot beat Liam at the near post. Moorside nearly extended the lead when a free kick on the edge off the area skirted Meds wall and looked goal bound but until Liam cleared well. At the other end, a number of consecutive corners from Harvey and Rheice looked post threats but to no avail and Meds went in at half time one nil down.
HT 0 -1
Meds came out strong at the start of the second half and looked more determined, finding more time on the ball and looking dangerous. However, Moorside stand in keeper was proving hard to beat and made a number of consecutive saves. Jordon had a point blank shot saved, Jonny’s rising shot went over the bar and both Joe and Ryan had shots blocked. Meds breakthrough finally came when Harvey’s corner found Jordon who scored from close range to make it 1 -1. Meds were now looking to take the lead but Moorside attackers were still causing problems with Jack and Kieron having to make strong challenges. In an identical move to that which gave Moorside the lead in the first half, a through ball from midfield found Rangers attacker who’s powerful shot beat Liam at the near post to make it 1 -2. Undeterred, Meds pushed forward looking for an equaliser and it was not long in coming. A corner from Harvey caused problems in Rangers defence and Rheice was on hand to tap it in to make 2 -2. With the scores now equal, Meds were now looking to take all three points, with the whole team pushing forward to find the third goal. However, with minutes remaining Rangers broke forward and their ‘in form’ striker unleashed a powerful shot to beat Liam and claim his hat trick. Dynamos continued to push forward in the dying minutes but could not find a further equaliser.
FT 2 – 3
Goals- Jordon 1, Rheice 1
MOM – Kieron, made some crucial challenges and worked hard
Team - Hartley,Jonny,Jonesy,McNicol,Friso,Chips,Cheesy,Harvey,Goldy
An improved second half performance against a very hard working and determined Moorside team. Only the second league defeat of the season in what is a very competitive and challenging division.

Dynamos vs Beechfield (kindly provided by Howard and Liam).
With Dynamos playing their third game in four days, the team turned up at a very windy Flixton Fields facing a tricky league match against Beechfield Storm. With Dynamos playing against the wind in the first half the game was very nip and tuck, with both teams finding it hard to play their fluent passing game. Early efforts saw Jordon’s shot parried by Beechfield’s keeper, whilst, Rheice and Harvey were crafting opportunities down each wing. With Beechfield’s number 7 beginning to take control of the game for the opposition, Jack and Kieran had to be alert at the back. With just over 15 minutes gone, Beechfield nearly took the lead when a shot from distance had to be turned round the post by Liam. The resulting corner was fired in dangerously in to Dynamos box, but Meds cleared their lines well and the threat was soon extinguished. At the other end Johnny’s stretching runs combined with Rheice boundless energy and Jordon’s trickery was continuing to cause trouble, but despite a number of dangerous corners, Meds could not break through. Just before half time, a goal clearance from Liam was picked up by Beechfield’s attacker whose volley from the half way line caused a heart stopping moment for the spectators as the resulting shot looked goal bound, but fortunately Liam read the situation and calmly saved.
HT 0 – 0
With the wind in their favour, Meds started the second half very strongly, with Beechfield finding it hard to get out of their own half. Meds looked to have taken the lead when Johnny found himself in space with only the goalie to beat, but the wind got the better of his shot and forced the ball well over the bar. Meds continued to have the majority of the play with, Jordon, Joe and Ryan seeing efforts either being saved by Beechfield’s keeper or forced wide by the swirling wind. Beechfield’s key number 7 player was now helping out in defence and produced an overhead scissor clearance that drew appreciative applause from the spectators. Despite the constant pressure, Beechfield’s strikers still remained a threat on the break, with Jack and Kieran having to stay focused. With ten minutes of the second half gone, Meds finally got the breakthrough they were looking for. A clearance was picked up by Jordon who’s measured through ball found Jonny unmarked with only the keeper to beat. This time he made no mistake and he calmly slotted the ball home to make it 1 – 0. He then proceeded to run the whole length of the pitch smiling broadly before being congratulated by all of his team mates. Having taken the lead Dynamo continued to press forward with Harvey and Rheice, and after several near misses Jordon found himself in space on the left and unleashed a powerful shot that beat both Beechfield’s defender and keeper to make it 2 -0. With the Meds now in control and looking comfortable for the three points the MANAGER took the weight off his feet and joined the subs bench!! Despite being two nil down Beechfield never gave up and continued to looked dangerous on the break, with Liam coming out of his area to clear up through balls, however the score remained 2 -0 and Meds secured three points.
FT 2 – 0
Goals Jonny 1, Jordon 1
MOM – Rheice for his boundless enthusiasm and tireless runs down the win.
Team - Hartley,Jonny,Jonesy,McNicol,Friso,Chips,Cheesy,Harvey,Goldy
A very good match played in good spirits by both teams in difficult conditions.
Sorry - I haven't had much time to write match reports the last couple of weeks. In that time we have played AFC Monton 3 times and managed to draw 1-1 each time. Both teams have given their all in all 3 games and I have to say Monton are a very good footballing side. Credit to their players. My feeling is the home game was an even game and both sides deserved a share of the spoils. The two away games I felt on the balance of play we deserved to win but were denied by two man of the match performances by their outstanding goalkeeper.
In addition we have been to the tournament in Fleetwood and it was a long cold day. The boys performed excellently as always. Finshing second in the group with the following results:-
Dynamo 0 - Rossendale 0
Dynamo 1 - Warton 0 (goal - Jordon)
Dynamo 0 - BJFF 0
Dynamo 4 - Fleetwood Gym 0 (goals - Jordon 4)
Dynamo 1 - Flixton 0 (goal - Ollie)
Dynamo 3 Fleetwood Town 0 (Jordon 1 Harvey 2)
This took us into the quarter finals where we played Barrowford Celtic and won 2-0 with an own goal and another from Jordon
In the semi we met Furness Cavaliers who had won their group convincingly. They were comfortably dispatched as Jordon scored a hat trick and we won 3-0.
BJFF had won the other semi final and going into the final we were not only unbeaten but hadn't conceded a single goal and we had scored 14. Unfortunately, BJFF got the better of us in the final winning 2-0.
Another Fantastic Day you should be very proud of yourselves.
