Audlem Saints U9s football team have had some tough fixtures lately. First up was a game versus Boca Juniors, the team currently joint league leaders along with Audlem. As one can imagine, the game was a very good one with lots of skill on show. Audlem took an early lead and defended it well until deep into the final period.

Boca then converted two chances to leave Audlem staring at defeat. However, with only seconds to play a good passing move opened up the Boca defence and a cool finish from the Audlem striker levelled the game. The 2-2 draw was a fair result.

The following week, Audlem took on the third placed team Cougars. Another tight game ensued but this time Cougars were unable to breach the Audlem defence. At the other end though, the chances were only half chances and it was proving dificult to score. The game was eventually settled by a real piece of quality play. A wonderful dribble around defenders into the box was rounded off with a sidefoot pass to an unmarked team mate. The cool finish won the game 1-0 for Audlem Saints.

The latest game, yesterday, saw Alsager Town Bears beaten 2-0 by Audlem. Both goals were well struck efforts but once again, the defence covered themselves in glory. The clean sheet was the 8th one in 10 games in the current competition. With just 4 games to play, Audlem are still joint league leaders and are chasing their 3rd consecutive Championship!
