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.
