Hopes for this season?
‘A season in which we challenge for honours.’

Why WUFC

‘I’m delighted to get him signed for Winsford, it shows that we are moving in the right direction. Mike has real quality. He is lightning fast and direct. He can operate in a number of positions. He fits the profile of the players we have been bringing to the club and I’m sure he will quickly be a fans favourite.

NEW SIGNINGS!

Winsford United are pleased to announce the following signings: 

Ryan Hopper

Tell us about you:

‘I started off at Manchester United then moved to Blackburn Rovers both academy sides, I joined Accrington Stanley on a professional deal at 18 making 4 football league appearances, I then went on to Mossley for 2  years then New mills for 3 and a half years both in the evo stick and one year in the north west counties prem with New mills.’ 

What do you want from this season?

‘I am a footballer who likes to play the right way so I will be looking to get on the ball at every opportunity and create chances for the team, I will also get around the pitch and work hard.

Why Winsford?

‘I want to compete and challenge for trophies both in the league and FA cup and other cup competitions. After speaking to the gaffer and him outlining his plans and knowing the club wanted me last season there was no other club but Winsford United.’

Ducko’s comments:

‘Ryan is a quality player with a wealth of experience even though he is still very young. He moves the ball intelligently and likes to dictate the pace of the game. I watched Ryan a few times last year and he never disappointed. I’m sure he will gel well with the rest of the lads and provide a great asset for the season ahead.’

Brandon Moores

Tell us about last season:

‘I believe that it was a season with a lot of high points and few lows. The cup run was the most obvious high but also our play and form at times was very good. Which I think steams from having a good bunch of lads that are all in it together and get on well.’ 

What do you want from this season?

‘Hopefully next season we can keep a large proportion of the team, while strengthening and push on and recreate more successes next season. From a personal point of view I would like to keep fit and play as regular as possible and help the team where I can.’

Why Winsford?

‘I have chosen to sign for winsford for the upcoming season because the club and players have a real feeling of togetherness which I have not experienced before at previous Clubs. I hope this continues and that new players arriving buy into the same philosophy and team ethics. I also think that in my first season at winsford as a younger player I was given a chance, which hasnt really happened before, but happens regular with different players here.’

Ducko’s comments:

‘Moorsey is a quality footballer. He is exciting, direct and a nightmare for defenders. The supporters only got a glimpse of what he can do last year so I’m excited to get him firing on all cylinders this season.’

Chris Middleton

Tell us about last season:

‘Disappointing finish, although we could of maybe got a few more points on the board if we had a bit nouse about us. Enjoyed the unbeaten run, played some great football.’ 

What do you want from this season?

‘I hope that we finish a lot higher than last, will be tough with quite a lot of teams now in the league with big budgets but with some of the players expected to sign for us we should easily better last season.’ 

Why Winsford?

‘I thoroughly enjoyed my time when I signed last season & again with the lads expected to sign & the ambition of the management team. Having Ducko as the manager is a cherry on top.’

Ducko’s comments:

‘Middy is an old fashioned defender and brings experience to a young side. He is no nonsense and knows what we are looking for. I’m sure this season will be a big season for him..’

Last night’s training session, saw the blues first team put through their paces with Personal Trainer and local gym owner Ashley Wood. 

“It’s great to have the successful local gym, Funk Fitness offer their expertise to the players of Winsford Utd. Tonight was a tough session to evaluate where the players are currently on fitness. Ashley from Funk will then assess them at regular intervals. Ashley was professional and knowledgeable throughout, the lads look forward to more sessions as the next 6 weeks progresses”

Breaking News: Will Foster Signs for Blues

The club are delighted to announce that Will Foster has committed his future to Winsford for the coming season. This is a real coup given the teams that were interested in Will.

‘When I joined Winsford last season everyone made me feel really welcome at the club, from fans to players and coahing staff. I think it’s the best place for me to progress as a player and also the club has shown great ambition for next season.

I made my debut on boxing day, we beat 1874 4-0 it was a great game for the fans. We had a top run of 7/8 wins on the bounce and should have been pushing for top 6. It was disappointing to fade away at the back end of the season but I enjoyed playing in some great games

Next season I think we should be looking to challenge at the top of the league. Lee, tick and kev have spoke to me about where they want to improve the squad and I think after a good pre season we can get off to a fast start. Also like a good run in cup competitions like the fa cup last year which would be a great experience for us 

The coaching staff showed a lot of enthusiasm towards signing me up for next season. I need to be somewhere I can really progress and get experience. Also I believe this club is heading in the right direction and will be able to compete against any team in the league and look to win trophies.’

Comments from Manager Lee Duckworth:
‘This signing shows that the club is moving in the right direction. We introduced Will last Christmas and from the start he was superb. He very quickly became a key player for the team with mature performances that defied his young years. He has a great future in front of him and I’m delighted he will continue that with Winsford United. He is quick, defensively very strong and likes to play football from the back.

Over the past season we have shown that this club is an ideal environment for young players to progress and its testament to that environment that we have retained such a great player. If he continues to work hard and learn, then he has a very bright future in the game.

Will has been very positive about the club throughout our discussions and I’m sure the supporters will be excited to see him in a blue shirt again!’

All the best for the upcoming season Will, you are a great asset to the club.

Breaking News: Transfer Deadline Day

Transfer News: 
I’m sure all the blues have seen that we’ve been busy this week, between the management team (Kev / Tick / Me) and Bob we have been working to get in players to strengthen the squad and improve it for the run in, below is a run down of the recent transfers:

IN

Mike Langley – Michael made it known he was keen to rejoin the blues and when a player of his calibre becomes available you’d be a fool to miss out. He remains one of the best in the league so will give us headaches for first choice for the remainder of the season

Tom Clare – tom comes with a strong background. He is predominately a right back, likes to get forward and play football the right way. He comes highly recommended from our contacts higher up the pyramid so I’m looking forward to working with Tom.

Danny McDonnel (Frodo) – I’ve known Danny a while and he is a versatile defender who adds something I’ve felt we’ve been missing with regards to street smarts. He’s a very strong defender and will improve the back four where ever we deploy him.

Jack Banister – Jack has attract numerous recommendations from our local scouts. He can play on either wing or in the number ten role. He’s got great ability and I’m looking forward to seeing him in a blue shirt. He turned down many overtures from higher up the pyramid to join us.
OUT
Sam Riley – Sam leaves with our best wishes, he’s a top lad and a great player but has been limited to game time due to the form of our wide mean recently. He wants to play football so joins Sandbach for the rest of the season. I’m sure we’ll see Sam help them get promoted and hopefully we’ll see him in blue in the summer again.

Winsford United 6 – 1 Cammell Laird


Following last nights run away win at home to Cammell Laird we caught up with Lee Duckworth for his post match review: 
‘We knew Cammel Lairds wouldn’t just roll over. They would come and work hard to make life difficult. They set up with 5 at the back and were happy to play on the counter. To be fair they soaked up our initial pressure well and grew into the game. They scored a goal that defensively from front to back we should of done better with, it started through us giving away possession softly as we became frustrated. They then sat back in and defended again, but it frustrated us and we were well below par for the remainder of the half

At half time we remained the players what we expected from them and what we had discussed tactically. We also adjusted the shape. We knew if we moved Cammel Lairds about then they couldn’t keep up the high tempo they had employed defensively. We eventually found a break through from a set piece and this then meant Lairds came out more allowing us to exploit the space better. The players did well in taking their chances, with JJ getting most of the headlines. I was pleased with the debuts of Steele and Bircumshaw, plus the return to action of Jenners and Warby showed the strength we have within the squad.’

Congratulations to Man of the Match Jordan Johnson: 

‘We knew coming into the game that lairds were on the back of two good draws so we weren’t to take them lightly , first half they were hard to break down and the lads were not at it from the start , coming out for the second half we knew the next goal was vital , luckily we got it and then pushed on , it’s always nice too grab myself a hat trick and it was a brilliant second half team performance hopefully we can kick on now and go on another run.’ – JJ

Follow Ducko and the lads this Saturday as we travel to New Mills. 

‘We have 4/5 players due back this week and still 2 more banned so the depth of the squad is improving all the time. The players know the next tough task is New Mills who are fighting for their lives and have some great players in their ranks.’ – Ducko.
