Congratulations to Steve Benyon on receiving his award last night.

Congratulations to Steve Benyon who was last night honoured as Flintshire Sports Volunteer of the Year at the Flintshire Sports Personality of the Year Awards at Theatre Clwyd. The accolade is a fitting tribute to Steve who has made a great contribution to local football in the area over the last 20 years, and his contribution to Airbus UK FC has been immense. I would echo Steve's comment that Marie also deserves a share of the recognition and I would like to give them both my sincere congratulations and thanks for all they do at the club.
The club itself also made the final shortlist as Community Club of the Year although we were piped at the post, and also hard luck to Julia Thomas from the Sports and Social Club who was runner up as Female Sports Personality of the Year.

Airbus UK Broughton Reserves dispatch Bala in the cup.

Another terrific reserves performance with a 3-0 away win at Bala in the quarter final of the North East Wales FA Cup.
Team: 3-5-2
Chris Doran - Jack Rowlands, Mark Heneghan, Matthew Wintle - Tom Povey, Seam Killgannon, Jack Challinor, Damian Wilkins, George Cowell - Paul McManus, Gary McConnell.
Subs: (none used) : Mark Atkinson, Jamie Meacock, Scott Skeen.
The lads put in a terrific disciplined performance, superbly skippered by Chris 'The Cat' Doran.
Bala started the game strongly and the first 20 mins put us under pressure, but with Jack 'the taxi' Rowlands marshalling the defence superbly, and Heneghan and Wintle in great form we rode the storm.
As the half progressed, the pace of Gary Mc and Paul McManus started to prove a real threat, and after being denied an absolute stonewall penalty, Damien Wilkins put us 1 up with a tremendous volley, his first goal away from the airfield.
The game remained in the balance until half time, although we did have another Tom Povey volley disallowed.
The second half performance was though an absolute credit to the club, and one which was a real tribute to the boss and new Flintshire Sports Volunteer of the Year Steve Benyon. We were quite simply unstoppable - the lead was soon doubled with a bullet header from Gary McConnell, and after we had 2 more strong penalty appeals turned down, Damian Wilkins beat 6 players in a mazy run before being stopped by the last defender, but the loose ball broke to Sean Killgannon who lashed in rocket from 25 yards, the ball sticking in the stanchion in the top corner! Sean kept up his record of scoring on every appearance this season. Paul McManus, who was superb on the day, had several other good chances, and Gary McConnell who covered every blade of grass on the pitch, could also have added to the tally.
It was though a great all round performance, and we look forward to see whether we draw Buckley, Chirk or Lex in the semi - final.

Chirk AAA 0-6 Airbus UK Broughton Reserves

An excellent result for reserves today with a 6-0 away win at Chirk AAA who had been in a good run of form. An outstanding team performance, with a hat trick from Gary McConnell, and one each from Niall Challinor, Sean Killgannon and Craig Mayers. On a heavy and bumpy pitch the team started superbly and were 3-0 ahead inside 25 mins, with Jack Challinor orchestrating midfield and Gary McConnell's pace really testing the Chirk defence. Playing in a 3-5-2 formation with Damian Wilkins pushing on to support the 2 strikers, we always looked like adding to the tally in the second half, and the score was doubled despite us missing a host of chances. Sean Killgannon kept up his record of scoring in each game since he signed for the club, and Gary completed his hat-trick with a well taken penalty. Damian had an excellent second half, but again failed to break his "away day drought".
Matty (Twink) Wintle and Mark Heneghan (in shiny new boots!) were superb at the back.
The team now face another 3 week break from league action , with 2 consecutive cup quarter finals to come, but we went back to the top of the league tonight following the win.
Team was:
Chris Doran - Matthew Wintle, Mark Heneghan, Tom Povey - Craig Mayers, Sean Killgannon, Jack Challinor, Damian Wilkins, George Cowell - Niall Challinor, Gary McConnell.
Subs: Jamie Meacock (for Craig Mayers after 20 mins due to injury), Daniel Calvert (for Tom Povey after 65 mins) and Paul McKinlay (not used)

Reserves go back top

The reserves had a great win 6-0 away at Chirk AAA, and in doing so completed a league double which has seen the team score 10 goals without reply.
We now move back to the top of the table heading Hawarden by a point.
More on today's game to follow.

Reserves beat Acrefair in Horace Wynn cup

The reserves had a great win 4-3 away at Acrefair from Division 1 (after extra time) in the Horace Wynne Cup. We are now into the quarter final with an away trip to either Coedpoeth or Ruthin. Looks likely to be an exciting end to the season all round, with us top in the league and into 2 1/4 finals.
Game today was a very good one. We led 1 nil early with a goal from Scott Skeen before being pegged back to 1-1 at half time, and then going 2-1 behind before Mark Heneghan equalised late from 1 yard ( with a miskick). We quickly took the lead in extra time through Sean Killgannon before being pegged back again , but Scott Skeen was on hand to strike the winner with a great finish 2 mins from the end of extra time. It was a great result considering we were without 7 players either cup tied or injured, and also lost young Reece Nash early in the game with a recurrent ankle injury. Brett Davies came on as a half time substitute, and Craig Mayers played his first game after a 3 month trip to Asia, and played well considering he played in 3 different positions during the game due to injuries forcing reorganisations. The victory was also notable for a solid performance in goal from the "veteran veteran" Wilton Evans.

Paul McKinlay was on the subs bench and we were not playing well, so the Manager Steve Benyon, made the crucial decision to put Paul on to sort out the midfield, this he did showing all his experience, and we went from a team that was playing poorly to a team that took control of the match with Paul dominating the midfield. The winning goal did indeed come from Paul McKinlay he was supposed to be sitting in centre midfield breaking the play up and allowing others to push on, but he decided to take things into his own hands and made a tremendous run playing one twos with several players and then delivering a great cross to Scott Skeen who duly scored his second and the match winner, Paul certainly changed the game." Not many club Chairman can copy that ;)
On the league front, Lex X1 took advantage of our cup game to go top of the table with a 3-0 home win over Coedpoeth, they hold a point lead but have played 2 games more. Poor ole Penycae made it 17 defeats from 17 games when they lost 3-1 at home Rhos Aelwyd. Hawarden missed out on going top, had they won at Chirk AAA they would have been top of the table, but they were on the wrong end of a 6-2 defeat.

Reserves progress in NEWFA cup

The reserves fielded a strong mix of reserves and first team squad players and managed a narrow 2-1 win over Venture from the Welsh National League Prem in the North East Wales FA Cup.
The game was a tetchy affair, with a number of bookings and Venture having a man sent off after 40 mins for a "haymaker" punch on Gareth Sudlow, who had to have stitches as a result. Overall though we controlled the game, James Macintosh scoring shortly after half time with a glancing header, and immediately after Venture had equalised with 10 mins to go, Damian Wilkins scored the winner with a 25 yard pile driver into the top corner.

Rhys Roberts was a superb man of the match at centre half alongside Jack Rowlands.
We now travel to Bala for the quarter final on Sat 13 March.
Team line up: (3-5-2)
Chris Doran, Jack Rowlands, Gareth Sudlow, Rhys Roberts, Josh Johnson, Tom Povey, Damian Wilkins, Josh Parry, George Cowell, Gary McConnell, James McIntosh.
Subs : Mark Heneghan( 40 mins for Sudlow), Jack Challinor(65 mins for Tom Povey)and Niall Challinor (Not used)

Reserves held at Rhos


Airbus Reserves drew 2-2 at Rhos Aelwyd, twice coming from behind with 2 goals from debutant Sean Killgannon. On an awful heavy pitch ( it was the first time Aelwyd had played at home since early Nov due to snow and waterlogging) the boys struggled to get their normal passing game going. The game was playing in thick fog, which at points in the second half made it difficult to see one end of the pitch from the other!!
Our lead at the top has been cut to 1 point, with Hawarden winning at home against Llangollen 2-1, but the team everyone is watching over their shoulders are Bala Town, who are just 5 points off the top but with 4 games in hand.

The reverse fixture against Aelwyd is now likely to be played next Sat at the airfield.

Reserves beat New Brighton Villa in Horace Wynn cup


After a six week lay-off due to the severe winter weather, the reserves returned to action with a great 3-1 home win against WNL Div 1 Villa. Despite being without 8 regular starters due to them being cup-tied after appearing in various games for the first team in the Loosemores Cup, the patched up reserves gave an assured performance, particularly playing in a new 5-3-2 formation and with 3 academy players in the team.

With 17 yr old Dominic Williams looking assured at sweeper, the home goal was rarely threatened and the lads secured a comfortable win with goals from an excellent Scott Skeen, who partnered goal scoring debutant Damien Wilkins upfront.

Sandwiched in between goals from the new strike partnership was a good strike from Academy juniors Reece Nash, Jamie Meacock and Lee Powell were excellent, along with an all action performance from the evergreen veteran Karl Atkinson who moved into midfield from his usual centre-half berth. It gives Steve Benyon and Paul McKinlay a massive selection dilemma for the return to league action on 30th Jan.

Airbus comfortable against Holt in NEWFA cup

The reserves played this fixture which is a competition in which we could play our first team, but as the fixture clashed with the away game at Neath, the reserves took the game.

The reserves came away with a superb 4-1 win against the Div 1 side on a terrible mud-bath of a pitch. With Josh Parry dominating midfield, the side quickly took a 3-0 lead with goals from Niall Challinor, his 23rd of his debut season in senior football, followed by George Cowell and young sixteen year old Reece Nash. Debutant Daniel Calvert added a fourth in the second half to cap a superb team performance, which was also notable for an assured goalkeeping performance from veteran Wilton Evans.

The draw for the next round has seen us get a home tie against Venture Community, which was scheduled to be played on 13th Feb, but has been postponed as Venture are playing in the Welsh Trophy (new date to be arranged).

Reserves get off to a winning start

The Reserves got off to a winning start to the new season putting 5 goals past visitors Penycae without reply.

Danny Stanton ran the midfield, Karl Atkinson ruled the defence and striker Gary McConnell scored a hat-trick.

Mark Atkinson scored in the 40th minute after good link up play from Stanton to Jack Challinor who then played the ball out wide to Mark Atkinson who hit a 35 yard rocket into the back of the net.

Niall Challinor made up with the 5th goal of the day. One of the 16 year olds has gone with the first team today to Llanelli (George Cowell) the young left back made his first team debut when we played Bethesda in a recent friendly.
