W Sandbach United Football Club was established in 2004 when Sandbach Albion and Sandbach Ramblers joined forces in their quest to improve the football facilities in Sandbach. Hence the R & A on the club badge. In January 2004, the membership of Sandbach Albion and Sandbach Ramblers voted in favour of amalgamation, with the aim of playing as a single club from the start of the 2004/5 season. Sandbach Albion was formerly known as Hays Junior Football Club and was founded in 1994, playing on the pitches of what was then Albion Chemicals. As health and safety issues became more prevalent in the 90’s, they left that site and for 5 years the senior home ground was at Sandbach Cricket Club. The younger sides played their games at junior schools throughout Sandbach. Sandbach Ramblers Youth Football Club was formed in 1995 to provide access to schoolboy football for the youth of Sandbach. Of course there had been a Ramblers team in the town before, Sandbach Ramblers were initially formed in 1920 and played in the Cheshire County League before folding in 1975 reforming in 1979 and disbanding in the late 1980s. In 2006 Sandbach United formed the adult team, which initially competed in the Crewe and District League before moving to the Staffordshire Senior League First Division and then being promoted to the Premier Division for the 2008/9 season. In 2011, the club was awarded grants by the Football Foundation and the local council of over £2 million to build a 3G pitch and 9 grass pitches, together with changing rooms and an education suite. The Sandbach Community Football Centre was opened early in the 2011/12 season. United switched to the Cheshire League in 2011 and won promotion to the Premier Division for the 2013/14 season before moving to The Hallmark Security League for the 2016/17 season. The club has over 600 players and 40+ teams that operate from its Hind Heath Road base, which is just 3 miles from junction 17 of the M6. United have teams playing in the Mid-Cheshire Youth League, and the Cheshire Girls League among others, and the age range covers adults and veterans teams right down to Soccer School for Reception and Year 1 children.


W Sandbach United 2 – Silsden 0 Jacque Talbot reports as Sandbach bagged 3 points in their home encounter against Silsden as Josh Lane strikes both goals of the game. Both teams pressed early but it was Sandbach who looked the most convincing of the pair. Josh Lane showed true determination as he robbed Silsden’s centre-back of possession and then rolled the ball past Silsden’s keeper to open the scoring; 1-0 Sandbach United. It was evident from the early stages that Sandbach were desperate for the win. Carlos Correia could not quite get his shot to cause the keeper a problem and then, a few minutes later, Oumar Mballo’s shot blazed just over the bar. After the break, both teams were finding more space and opportunities on the ball. Right-back Matthew Pearson rose the highest from George Riley’s whipped cross but the header glanced just wide of the mark. The other side of the pitch, Silsden’s Zack Hargreaves’ pinpoint cross was headed towards goal by Daniel Forrest, but Sandbach’s goalie, Ryan Moss pulled off an amazing one-handed save to deny him. George Riley’s in-swinging corner kick eventually found its way to Josh Lane. He then returned a cross back into the box where Danny Bartle’s headed effort bounced agonisingly across Silsden’s goal line and out wide. The second goal of the game came when substitute, Tom Watkins hoofed what seemed like a harmless ball into the box. Josh Lane, unmarked and waiting, cleverly took the ball down and laced it on the half volley into the back of the net, sealing the important victory for Sandbach United. MoM: Josh Lane – didn’t lose a single header and would’ve been chosen as MoM without his two goals. Sandbach Untied would like to thank Planet Environmental, Henshall Insurance, Johnson The Cleaners, The Ganges and Grenville Engineering for their support.

W Bacup Borough 0 – Sandbach 2 Sandbach United earned three points on Saturday in a 2-0 win over Bacup Borough in a crappy affair at the Brian Boys Stadium. Despite no real chances being created early on, Mathew Pearson opened the deadlock with a superb header which spun away from the keeper’s grasp and in the top corner. George Riley provided the assist with an accurate free-kick near the half-way line. Another chance fell to Sandbach when Mathew Pearson drove the play out into the wing. Daniel Bartle was there to latch on and send a fine cross into the box where central-defender Kris Stockton headed fractionally over the crossbar. In the second half, Sandbach doubled their lead when George Riley’s cleverly lifted pass saw Daniel Bartle through on goal. The centre-forward was then brought down by a rash challenge from a Bacup defender inside the box. And it was the number nine who doubled Sandbach’s lead with the hard-hit penalty which almost tore the roof off the Bacup net. Sandbach United have responded well to their defeat on Tuesday, remaining in the playoff zone of the Hallmark Security League in 6th position. Carlisle City await them for their next fixture on Saturday. MoM: Mathew Pearson: Vocal, consistent throughout and always causing havoc down the right flank.

Preview: Sandbach United vs Carlisle City Sandbach United earned a well-deserved away win on Saturday in a 2-0 win over mid-table team Bacup Borough, but this Saturday they face another challenge in way of a tough contest against Hallmark Security League rivals, Carlisle City. The claret and blues head up north to Carlisle City, a team who are currently in 17th place in the table. The Cumbria team are coming off the back of a 4-3 victory over St Helens Town, their fourth win this season despite their league position. Sandbach United could go 4th with a win against their northern rivals, further making the case of them to be promotion contenders. The match will kick off at 3pm at Gillford Park (CA1 3AF)

The Dragons AFC was formed in February 2003 with the aim of making football fun, teach new skills and self confidence. Our aim was to make football so much fun that the children will want to be involved and they will keep coming back for more. Based in Widnes, Cheshire the Dragons AFC, later to be known as Widnes Dragons has a fantastic reputation locally for their contribution towards the development of grassroots football in Halton and provide opportunities to play football for over 200 players from the age of 6 to open age. The club have put in a great amount of effort to run the club according to the best practices laid down by the FA, to that end the club achieved the FA Charter Standard award in December 2003 and were recognised as the first club to achieve this award in Halton. Over the years the club continued to expand encouraging players of all abilities to participate. Having success on and off the playing field the club has also participated in successful tours to Spain (twice), Belfast, and Devon to name a few. In 2008 the club was awarded the FA Charter Standard Development award for the continuous development of grassroots football. To celebrate this achievement the club staged their annual presentation at Goodison Park the home of Everton Football Club. More presentations followed at prestige venues namely The Stobart Stadium and The Ethiad Stadium in Manchester to give the players an increased sense of achievement. In March 2012 Widnes Dragons started a consultation process with Widnes Vikings RLFC to become part of the Vikings Sports brand, a partnership that will enhance the club’s community status.
