This week I was asked to attend a local residents meeting with the local councillors and Southway housing association. The residents brought to my attention the same issues they always have with us. ‘Parking and Litter’. Please make your visiting teams aware that parking on the roads in front of the residents homes is anti-social and rude. Please impress on the visitors there is plenty of parking space on both parking areas. The second point they have and i cannot argue because it have witnessed it, leaving litter on the pitches. PLEASE PICK IT UP AND PUT IT IN THE BINS PROVIDED. THANK YOU!
Easter weekend, we entered the 8’s and 13’s into the tournament held on the university grounds in Northernden. Both sides came out winners in their groups. Well done guys

HOW PROUD ARE WE?
It was signing on day at Manchester United today and once again we can boast a host of talent that was spotted playing for us and have been selected to sign for next years under 9’s Academy. Both our under 8’s coaches (Rob & Mohammed) will need to look for some worthy replacements for next seasons campaign after loosing 5 players from their squads to the reds and more to other pro clubs (Stoke City, Everton and Stockport so far). The United players (pictured) are Left to right; Maison, Prince, Brandon, Corey and Felix. Mohammed who has mixed emotions about the signings because he has lost 2 goal keepers at the same time, so he is now on the lookout for a replacement for next season, any takers?
Manchester United’s under 18’s played in an indoor tournament in Germany and came away as winners (beating the Germans in the final in a penalty shoot out too). 4 of the players are ex Fletcher Moss soccer school players. Devante Redmond, Rohsaun Williams, Marcus Rashford and Cameron Borthwick Jackson (back row of picture).
