Club 100 – Congratulations James Rothwell

We also at this time congratulate James Rothwell for passing his 100th appearance for the blues. James was my player of the year last year and it’s clear to see why. He does the job that keeps the team ticking over, never gives up and offers 100% work rate every time he wears the shirt. He is an absolute credit to himself and a joy to have in the squad. Jim travels a distance to get to every training session and game without fail, even coming along when he is injured to support his team mates. He is a vital part of the squad, congratulations James. – Lee

A Blues Night To Remember

Following what can only be described as an enthralling night at Stockport County, we caught up with Manager Lee Duckworth for his post match comments and a look ahead to Saturday’s NWCFL game to Runcorn Linnets:

On the Stockport County game:

We were extremely disappointed to lose on the lottery of penalties but I was made up with the attitude and performance of the players. We were short of 5 players who had been regulars due to work commitments, being cup tied and suspension so we put faith in the squad and gave lads a game who haven’t had as much game time recently. They did the club justice with a spirited performance pushing a team consisting of 8 pros to the limit. First 30 minutes we probably showed them too much respect and we panicked on the ball often giving it away in needless situations, but after that I felt we grew into the game and again showed our “never say die” attitude with some fine play. The attitude of the lads was second to none and everyone was exhausted in the changing room afterwards, so as a management team that type of effort is all we can ask for. The support from the travelling fans was top draw and the lads all appreciated it, with the only disappointment being we couldn’t get the win the support deserved. I’m sure those in attendance though will have seen that this certainly wasn’t through lack of effort from the players and I hope they went away proud of the teams performance. Stockport were extremely complimentary about our team afterwards which is always nice to hear and hopefully we have left our mark. Finally from Myself, Birko and Ticks a big thank you to all those that travelled and made enough noise to drive the players on, it was great to see and hear!

Upcoming Runcorn Linnets:

Runcorn will be looking to put a disappointing result last week behind them and show they are still a team in the hunt for promotion. we were fortunate to produce a performance at Linnets earlier in the season and become one of only a select few to beat Linnets at home. I know Ello their manager well and he will have his players fired up to avenge that this weekend so we will have to be at it from the first whistle if we are to do ourselves justice. On the field we have a number of returning faces in contention and after the great performance Tuesday the management team are left with a number of headaches, but they are headaches we welcome after the last few months where injuries took a toll on the squad. I’m sure our fantastic support will be there again and will make for a great atmosphere, I wouldn’t envy the Linnets fans trying to compete with the firm!

On the 100 club:

To reach a 100 performances for any club in the modern game is a fantastic achievement. Players are easily swayed to leave a club when times become hard or at our level when clubs consistently offer them more money, so when a player reaches this landmark it says something about the fabric of the individual. We have been lucky to have 2 people reach this figure within the current squad, Danny Egan and Kyle Riley. It’s a credit to both players that even when times have been hard for them individually they have knuckled down and continued to work hard to prove people wrong. Kyle has been challenged in terms of performance and competition for places this season, a challenge he has risen too and so far surpassing by producing good performances and consistently finding the back of the net. Off the field he has helped new lads settle into to the side and focused on the team spirit we want within the club. Egan is old school and always puts the team before himself, often playing out of position to help the club out. He has a winning mentality which adds to the quality technique he can produce to make him a valuable member of the team. Well done lads, now for 200!

Kirk, Burton & Middleton Sign for the Blues

Team News:

In the last couple of weeks, Arron Kirk, Jack Burton & Chris Middleton have signed for the club. Welcome to Winsford United lads!

We caught up with manager Lee Duckworth regarding his recent signings:

Arron Kirk – Midfield

‘Arron is a top class footballer, comfortable in possession where ever he is on the field. I’ve tried a few times to get Arron to join the club as he has all the attributes we look for when looking to dictate the tempo of football matches. His control and range of passing is superb so I look forward to seeing him help us develop as we take the team forward.’ 

Jack Burton – Goalkeeper

‘Jack is an excellent local goalkeeper who will help provide cover for Michael and push him all the way. His attitude is a credit to him. He is also very comfortable with the ball at his feet.’

Chris Middleton – Defense

Chris is a tough tackling defender who we were absolutely delighted to get on board. He had the option of a number of clubs over the past 2 weeks but decided on Winsford. He likes to bring the ball out an play which is an ethos we have tried to install in the team, so he will be a real asset for the club. Our thanks to Ken Mead at Congleton Town for helping get this over the line.

As a management team we have recognised we needed to strengthen. The injury list we have had over the past 8-10 weeks has been unlike anything I have ever seen in football. We have lost some key individuals and very often meant we were short in key positions going into tough fixtures. We have identified the new raft of signings to help address this balance and once everyone is again back fit it will certainly add competition for places.

The message at the minute is, watch this space as there are more to follow, but we can also announce the following signings with pictures to follow:

– Sam Riley – Exciting quick winger who has returned to the club after a spell playing professionally in Australia.

– Josh Perry – A quick intelligent defender who is comfortable at Centre back or right back, recommended very highly by a number of people in football.

– The return of Dale Jennings from Mossley – Great to have Dale back, non-stop running and battling with real quality on the ball.

On the injury front, we have the following players who are close to a return to fitness:

– James Rothwell

– Brandon Moores

– Nathan Cotterill

– Robbie Hatton

– Elliot Hull
