Following the excitement of our first game last weekend, the Falcons went into this one in a buoyant mood. And why shouldn’t they? Each and every one of them played their little hearts out seven days ago and we know that the County fans were talking about it when they went into work and school […]

Well this was a bit different from last weekend! From the blistering temperatures and the water-breaks to this – the dark, dank clouds and the blustery wind! That’s Bolton for you we suppose. But that was not going to dampen our spirits. Oh no! Because there was the matter of playing FC Bridgewater Lions in […]

This morning saw our u8 Rockets welcome Blackburn Eagles to Bolton and what followed was an absolute feast of football provided by children so young! The weather was nowhere near as nice as when we lined up seven days ago – but the fans of both sides buckled in for what proved to be a […]

This one felt worlds apart from seven days ago – when we lined up over at Astley & Tyldesley in almost 80 degree heat. Because this afternoon all that The County Ground has to offer was a bitter cold wind and dark skies looming overhead. It was the visit of league-leaders Walshaw Sports Reserves on […]

There are weekends when you realise why you love this game so much! And this was one of them. We’d had some tough times of late so knowing that we were travelling over to Rochdale to take on the reigning champions – on the pitch where nobody had won for over 16 months – didn’t […]

As with the rest of the County squads in action today, the Rockets had worked all summer to prepare for this morning. Training had been good but now it was all about the real stuff – a match – so as we awoke this morning, the excitement was almost palpable… It was Leigh Genesis Transformers […]

This is exactly what the summer had been building up to. All of the hard work in pre-season. The training drills. The signatures on the dotted line. All of it leads up to this – the first game of the 2023-2024 – so as we awoke this morning, there was nothing but excitement in the […]

We’ve all been waiting for this. It’s been years in the making. And as we awoke this morning, it was there right in front of us. Our first-ever competitive 11-a-side match as we were welcoming Ainsworth FC to Leverhulme School and being a side that we’d never played before, we didn’t know what to expect. […]

After a summer of significant changes within the Tornadoes, it all led up to this morning – as we opened our league campaign with the visit of Bridge JFC to Leverhulme School. Several players had moved on during the close season so today saw a lot of these girls making their debuts in the famous […]

Don’t you just love this time of the season? The hard pre-season is over. The players are primed and ready. And it’s all about that first whistle going to commence the season where who knows, we’ll get to May and hopefully be there or thereabouts. And it was no different for our u12 Bullets as […]
