District side show signs of promise
MACCLESFIELD & District Schools FA U15 team are pictured above with managers Lee Wilshaw (left) and Jack Pritchard (right).
The team played its first match in the Greater Manchester Schools League against Knowsley Schools.
In an even first half, Macclesfield & District took the lead when Rob Stokoe (Poynton) prodded home following a scramble in the goalmouth.
Knowsley dominated for large parts of the second half and went 2-1 up but the hosts fought their way back into the game with a well taken goal by Ben Elliot (Wilmslow).
Knowsley then snatched the winner with the last kick of the game.
The match was played in a good spirit and was a fine advert for schools’ football. The team played Salford away last Saturday in the English Schools FA Trophy.
The U14 team played Rochdale FC U14s at Egerton Youth Club.
