Club record holder (for most times sent off) James Burke made his 100th appearance for the club in the recent fixture against Colwyn Bay. Congratulations to James and here’s to the next 100!
Over the next few weeks we could well hit some more milestones with Pete Boyle nearing 100 appearances and Harry Coates and Kyle Harrison approaching 50 each.
If you click on or search for any player name, you can view details about that player.
For all players this will include debut & last game, total amount of games played/goals scored and in some cases a biography and a photo.
A feature that was added a while ago on this page is the “all games where this player featured” and that has now been updated further so that at the bottom of the list it tallies up the Wins, Draws & losses record for that individual player record so that you can quickly see how successful or not that player was at Hyde United.
It wasn’t the best season that The Tigers have ever had, they finished 20th out of 22 in the Cheshire County League, just three points off the bottom. The league champions were Leek Town.
Appearances wise, top of the list was Jeff Johnson with an incredible 61 games, closely followed by goalkeeper (and often Centre Half) Jimmy Lomas on 60. Johnson scored 24 goals during the season but only came second, Pete O’Brien pipping him with 25 goals.
In The FA Cup, Hyde beat New Mills in the 1st Qualifying Round but were beaten 3-0 at Runcorn in the next round.
The FA Trophy saw a decent run with Horwich RMI, Harrogate Town (replay) and Droylsden all falling to The Tigers before a strong Mossley side beat us 4-1 in the 3rd Qualifying Round.
Locally, a good showing in the Reporter Cup was bettered by triumph in the Manchester Senior Cup. Hyde beat Dukinfield Town and Mossley before facing Oldham Athletic Reserves in the Final. It ended goalless but Hyde went on to win 3-1 on penalties, to my knowledge that is the first penalty shootout that Hyde took part in.

I said I was going to have a real go and get previous results onto the site and here is the first step. Some background changes kindly undertaken by tech wizard Neil Studd have seen the way things add up behind all the details quicken up and we he has also fixed the issue that lead to many players showing only part or no details from time to do. He is a genius!
Ok, so 1975/76 has now been completed. Not the greatest year we ever had but there were some good parts to it.
An eleven match run in the FA Trophy saw us reach the second round where we came unstuck in a replay at Morecambe, the highlight of this run for me was the three games we played again Bethesda Athletic in the Preliminary Round. Not for anything but I get slightly excited when I see the words ‘Second Replay’, a term which is now extinct. Also, Bethesda Athletic is a great name!
It was the season that saw a debut for our greatest appearance holder, Steve Johnson, who played a small role that season. His big brother Jeff however was top scorer with 37 goals and also topped the most appearances with a massive 62 (at least, there are a few line up gaps).
It was also a good season for local derbies. We played Stalybridge Celtic seven times this season, winning only twice!, Droylsden six times and Ashton United four times.
We did also manage some silverware, winning the Reporter Cup.

Firstly, I don’t update the site enough. At the moment I am without a PC which makes things just that little bit harder, hopefully I will get that resolved soon and I can make more regular updates.
I want to do more articles about the history of the club, obviously these take time to put together, look out for one in the coming days.
The data on the site currently goes back to 1975/76 and inputting is quite a slow process. I think the best way to speed things up will be to continue inputting full match records (opposition, date, comp, result, line ups, scorers) until the beginning of 1968/69, that is when we first entered the NPL and so we will have a full record back to this point. My aim is to get this done by Christmas although that will be some going! After that I plan to input just the basics, i.e. No line ups/scorers. This will allow me to record the clubs results much faster and again, I hope to get back to the 20’s by the season’s end and complete the results by Christmas 2017. After that I can then go back to adding the player information for each match, the bit that takes the time. That is the plan anyway.
Finally, I need to get to more games. I only managed a pitiful 2 last season, I have already beaten that this season if I include friendlies. I work shifts which makes it difficult but I’m sure I can make 10 if I try.
I’m on Twitter @prestwichtiger and each day for this season I will be featuring a historical game played on that day. Please retweet these if you can so I can spread the database to a wider audience, thanks.
Anyway, that’s all for now. Just really wanted to express my plans for updating the site. Watch out for an article in the next few days!
The Board of Directors have today relieved Gary Lowe of his position of manager at Hyde United. This is due to recent results which have left the club three points above the drop zone with six games left to play. On behalf of hydeunited.com, I’d like to Thank Gary, and his assistant, Martyn Booty, for all the hard work they have put in over the last 15 months and I wish them well in their future endevours.
No-one will forget what they did for the club in the 2011/12 season, even if that sadly could not be replicated.
