9th.June 2019; A Seven v. Seven at the Nash today and a 4 – 2 win for the Blues aided by a second half Bradshaw infusion. Mark played outfield today to give him a walk out before the friendly with N.W. England W.F.A. on Wednesday. Trevor Brereton will report soon. Here are the teams gathered by our new banner. I’m also pleased to report a productive chat with Curzon’s new ‘media man’ Paul Jolleys.
7th.June 2019 – with turnout predictably a little lower than usual at the Nash today, Dave Fielding has messaged in a brief report of the five-a-side game that took place…
A final score of 4 – 4. Sides were Blacks – Mike Keiron, Joe Bemrose , Mike Conroy, Steve Hampson and Colin Cuthbert. Oranges – Dave Fielding, Andy Truett, Dave Lees, Mike Caldwell and Rod Seddon. First half Dave Fielding in goals, Second Andy Truett. A very good game of flowing football with the excellent Mike Conroy scoring 4 goals for the blacks. first half ended 4 – 1 to Oranges – unsure of all scorers for Orange but know Dave Lees and Mike Caldwell were on target. Incredible comeback by the side in black bibs in the second half to level the scores. A massive thank you given to Roy Smith for refereeing with no whistle ! – which must have made it doubly difficult for him” – Dave Fielding
Thanks Dave – much appreciated and I can confirm Refereeing without a whistle is hard ! – Ed.

31/5/19 and MESSRS:PEARCE , RICHARDS AND BRADSHAW WERE MISSING TODAY SO AMONGST OTHERS, ANOTHER STALWART CAME TO THE AID OF THE PARTY – ‘PARTY’ himself…
Here’s his account of what transpired when thirteen others took to the 3g….
Yellows 1 (Conroy) Blues 1 (Wingrove)
It was seven v seven this morning at the Nash, the game ended in a 1-1 draw with Mike Conroy scoring for the yellows when he received a fine cross ball from Terry Bertenshaw. Mike hit the ball first time from close range with great power, Partington in the Blues goals managed to get his finger tips to it but could not keep it out ! The keeper had to check he still had all his fingers intact it was hit that hard. Yellows, with Pete Smith pulling the strings from midfield were well worth their lead and he was well assisted by Martyn Heath and Joe Bemrose, leaving Mike Caldwell up front.
Gordon Nixon took the gloves once more and dealt with everything comfortably, making a couple of very good saves. The blues had the ever dependable Rob Lake at the back, along with Dave Fielding and this pair made it tough for Yellows to create chances. Steve Wingrove made the decisive pass enabling Steve Foster to score a deserved equaliser for the Blues.
Steve Hampson was always involved as always, to great effect it must be said and John Gaskin also played his part in game without a referee and no Mark Bradshaw who was busy elsewhere. Good game, good draw and played with the right attitude seeing there was no Referee well done everyone.
*edited* – thank you David.
Note for Denton men” Tuesday will see our final games at Curzon Ashton during the enforced switch.” Thanks to Mark Bradshaw and the club for making us welcome while our pitch was renewed, it’s not far from completion – Ed.
GOOD SAVE DAVE !
Mark Bradshaw is to make his debut for the Nash Amblers in the June 12th. friendly v. N.W.England (WFA) . A matter of months ‘underage’ his appearance has been agreed with the N.W. manager Mark Davis.
We will still look to field a team with an average age of around sixty years.
An important factor when it comes to team selection in which Competitive boss John Smith, Co-ordinator Alan Richards and Bradshaw himself will be involved.
This is a new site and still partly under construction.
The domain name has cost Nash Amblers funds just £15.50. Higher ‘hosting costs’ are subsidised for now by Denton Walking Football Group who have online hosting which can accommodate extra domains. DWFG players agreed to renew the plan this month, which also includes under its wing the Fair Play website.
This means the new site has at least twelve months to establish itself as the ‘go to’ site for the walking football at the Nash. Please use it. It is hoped that the Curzon club website will link to this one in an effort to raise the profile of walking football at the Nash.
I will be editing it for the time being but as you can see from the page headings there’s scope for lots of input from trusted sources – match reports etc. A feedback box like the one below will accompany most of the posts here. If you wish your comments to remain private just add that add the end of the text, or otherwise they may be published here – thanks.
