The beautiful village of Tattenhall in Cheshire
Charlie Cooke: September 2015
AFC Tattenhall have completed their first few fixtures of the new season, with mixed fortune. Having lost their first 3 games, fairly heavily, they arrived at Waverton on a balmy Tuesday evening. The first half was dire, and Tattenhall had gifted their opposition a 3 goal lead. Stern words were said at half time and Tattenhall came back strongly, and gave a spirited performance and levelled the game at 3-3 in the final minute, thanks to Ross Farquar's second goal of the game.
We had picked up our first point of the season, and although this has been a steep learning curve, there are green shoots showing.
On Sunday we played Upton Youth Centre, and we carried on where we left off from Tuesday, going in at half time 3-1 up, with goals from Matt Evered, Paul Ravenscroft, and Dell Amson. Unfortunately in the second half, fitness (lack of) took its toll, we lost our shape and in a turnaround from Tuesday's events, we conceded in the final minute to record a second 3-3 draw.
We are still on the hunt for a manager, with several high profile names being bandied around. So, if you're interested, whether you're a tracksuit or shirt and tie manager, we'll have you.
We'd like to thanks Jan and Monk and Eunice at the Letters for their unwavering support in hard times, and making sure our team doesn't go hungry, and Morton's Spar Tattenhall for sponsoring our new kits, we look forward to wearing them with pride in the coming weeks.
