26/10/99                  Ermont (Paris)                           0              Bollington United                    1


                                        Long long search for stadium…. Evening match.  HT = 0-1

                                        Tremendous gritty performance against an excellent team. Under attack for large parts of game, calling for

        strong defending from whole team. 



28/10/99                  Beynes FC                                0              Bollington United                    8


                                          More rural location and much easier game.

                                          Once Bollington broke through, there would only be one winner. Good display on a pleasant evening.  






BELGIUM - 2000

Based at Sun Parks, Rauwse Meren                                                                      October 2000

xx/10/00                 Rood Wit   U14s            1           Bollington United U14s          7

An excellent performance against a class team. Bolly chased every loose ball and simply did not allow their hosts to settle, whilst at the smae time producing some clinical finishing.

xx/10/00                 Roda Heilust                  0           Bollington United U14s         4

Against a bigger more physical team, Bolly took an early lead but were forced to hang on for much of the first half. The second goal, however, killed the game and in the end this was a comfortable victory.



IRELAND - 2002

Based in Dublin                                                                                           Sat 19th October 2002 


xx/10/02                 Bohemians          2                Bollington United          3

An exciting game played in clear conditions, although dusk. Very conpetitive but fair.  HT=0-2 

(0-1,0-2, 1-2, 1-3, 2-3)
