CHESHIRE VETS LEAGUE DIVISION FOUR
MANCHESTER WOLVES 4 BIRKENHEAD ALL-STARS 1

Goals from Stu Cartwright (2), Marc Yaffe and Leon Huller steered Manchester Wolves to victory in their opening fixture.

The newly-formed over-35's team put Birkenhead All-Stars to the sword in their first fixture at Abbey Hey FC in Gorton.

Names that have graced Manchester Maccabi and South Manchester Maccabi rolled back the years as the Wolves eventually ran out easy winners after a nervy start.

Darren 'Beanie' Cohen helped to set up the first for Stu Cartwright who helped himself to a second just after half time.

Marc Yaffe slid in a third and although the deficit was reduced Leon Huller finished the game after coolly slotting home the fourth.

Manchester Wolves boss Darryl Lee told JC Sport: "After months of planning it was great to start the season although nerves did get to the whole squad.

"The difference in the end was our finishing-as we scored at key moments and the opposition had their own cross-bar challenge competition having hit the woodwork four times!"

Manchester Wolves host Barr Hill at Abbey Hey Stadium next Sunday.
