Late Goal Stuns Brave Jimmies In Ten-Goal Thriller

Heywood St James First Team entertained Manchester Gregorians at Phoenix Park last Saturday still looking for a victory that would move them up the league table.

For 15 minutes of last Saturday afternoon’s game Jimmies were ripped apart by the quick Gregs forwards and could have conceded two or three goals but for the agility of keeper Neil Mcnulty. But two goals in three minutes saw Jimmies take…

Jimmies Are Punished For Inexplicable Lapses

By Dennis Booth: Heywood St James First Team went down to a heavy 7-3 defeat against fellow relegation candidates Leigh Athletic at Phoenix Park last Saturday afternoon. Jimmies had already beaten Leigh at their place, 4-1, back in October and were looking to repeat that victory to put some “daylight” between the two clubs. However things didn’t quite go to plan as the visitors had a physical presence that was to prove instrumental in bringing the home side to their knees with a powerful display of forceful football. Jimmies, thanks to a superbly struck shot from skipper Scott Hardy, led…
