DROYLSDEN 0 – 6 FC HALIFAX TOWN

 Blue Square Bet North – Saturday 16 February 2013

 by Gary Owen 

The Bloods were put to the sword by a clinical Halifax side, in a performance which saw former Hyde striker Gareth Seddon bag a hat-trick. 

The rout started as early as the seventh minute, when Danny Lowe played a long ball for Liam Needham, and his cross found Alex Titchener, who couldn’t miss from 6 yards out.

Blue Square Bet North – Saturday 2 March 2013

 by Gary Owen 

Avenue were in seventh heaven as they inflicted Droylsden’s heaviest defeat for over a decade, romping into a four goal lead inside 22 minutes. 

Avenue showed their intent in the opening moments, as Alex Davidson stung Yannick Nlate’s palms, but the rout commenced on ten minutes when Davidson scored the first of his brace with a simple conversion at the far post.

SALFORD CITY 1 – 0 DROYLSDEN

 Manchester County F. A Challenge Cup (semi-final)

Tuesday 12 February 2013 

by Gary Owen 

The Bloods were dumped out of this competition at the penultimate stage, but can have few complaints, with a Danny White goal five minutes into the second half being the difference between the two sides.

 The game was rather scrappy, yet played on a big pitch with a good surface, but premium chances were rare. Indeed, home ‘keeper Ritchie Branagan only had a solitary shot to save all night! 

Osebi Abadaki threatened first for the hosts, but his effort was just wide of the mark.

 Steve Hall then registered a shot off target for Droylsden – which summed-up Droylsden’s night.

DROYLSDEN 0 – 5 ALTRINCHAM

 Blue Square Bet North – Tuesday 5 March 2013

 by Gary Owen

 This game really summed-up Droylsden’s difficult season: defensive errors being punished; industrious, but unproductive midfield; and a strike force that fails to register a shot on target. Indeed, Stuart Coburn’s evening consisted of dealing with back-passes and taking goal-kicks. Not only did the Altrincham stopper not have a shot to save, he didn’t even have a cross to field.
