Paul Newman

Probably had his best season for Mellor in 2006-07. Wide midfield player who was a regular in the First Team squad but is now part of the Second Team set up. Fit, quick, brave, he has matured with experience over the last two years. Probably needs to score a few more goals to become the complete all purpose player. Ended the 2005-06 season with a string of fine performances and did the same again in 2006-07. Is there a theme emerging here? Nickname: Newman or The Judge (because of the time he sometimes spends on the bench). DoB 10.8.82

Will Parry

Progressed through Mellor Juniors. He made a number of senior appearances in 2012-13 season. Started 2013-14 as a striker for the Seconds. Tireless front runner.

Nick Pearce

Joined Mellor at the start of 2013-14 season, establishing himself in the Seconds. An attacking midfielder who links play well.

Mike Priest

 

Joined Mellor at the start of 2012-13 season, making his debut as a sub for the Fourths in a 0-4 home defeat against Old Ashtonians in September 2012.

Steve Parry

 

Joined the club in September 2010. Made his debut as a sub for the Firsts away against Trafford Utd in the Rhodes Cup.

Matt Peck

Joined Mellor in season 2009-10, he's a flying winger in the Aaron Lennon mould. Tricky and brave he played the season in the Seconds but is destined for the Firsts one day. Probably needs to develop a little more composure in front of goal to make him the Real Deal. Scored the winner in an amazing penalty shoot out in April 2010 at Wood Lane to put Mellor Seconds into the Wray Cup Final. Scored two goals in the Stockport Senior Cup 1/4 final against Cheadle Town Res in February 2014. A member of the Stockport Senior Cup winning squad of 2014.

Phil Newton

Joined Mellor in 2010-11 season, playing for the Fourths.

Chris Philpott

 

Made his debut as a sub in a Reserve Team game v Tintwistle in October 2011.

Jack Needham

Joined Mellor in 2010-11, playing mainly as a back four defender for the Fourths. Excellent reader of the game and tackler.

Sam Porter

Joined Mellor early in 2009, making his debut in the Fourths at left back. A cultured player who likes to get forward.

Jamie Parker

Joined Mellor in 2007-08. A midfield player who performs mainly for the Thirds but has also appeared for the Seconds. He has a bright future at Mellor.

Aaron Purcell

Joined Mellor in October 2008 and made his debut for the Fourths against Irlam Steel in that month. Has developed into a no-nonsense and enthusiastic defender.

Andy Oldham

Eddy Nickson

Began his second spell for Mellor in February 2007 by being named Man of the Match in a 3-2 win for the Fifths, after living and working in Germany for several years.

Tom Neil

Leggy but talented player who is not quite sure of his best position. Probably midfield if he can ensure his stamina levels. Pours a good pint behind the bar of the Midland in Marple Bridge, too. Fourth Team's leading scorer in 2007-08, he hit several blinding goals, especially one against Old Ashtonians away and one against Beechfield at home in the last game of the season. A member of the Whitehead Cup winning side in April 2009 for the Thirds. Nickname: Tommy Tightpants.

Tim Parker

Cultured centre-back for the Seconds.

Chris Nichols

Came to the club as a back-four defender but has converted into a central midfielder. He established himself as a first team regular after joining the club a quarter into the 2002-2003 season. Broke a toe in the 2003 Stockport Senior Cup Final but still hopped up for his medal. Santa brought him a mountain bike for Christmas 2003 but it still looks suspiciously shiny. In season 2004-05 he played mainly for the seconds, scoring two fabulous headed goals, one in his own net against Bedians away, one at the right end against Hooley Bridge away. Good tackler and covers some ground but needs to develop his first touch and passing skills. So cool he even works for Iceland. Nickname: Nichols or Pickles. DoB 19.12.83

Mark Oldham

 

First team full-back or centre back who can also make surging runs forward. Won Man of the Match in the Stockport Senior Cup Final in May 2005. Also skippered his side to victory in the club's F A Cup Final Day 5-a-side tournament. Chosen for the Lancs & Cheshire League representative side in 2005-06 against Liverpool Old Boys League. Struck by a mystery illness in 2007-08 which saw him lose feeling in his left arm. He still managed to play for the Thirds with the affliction, which has thankfully responded to treatment. Second Team Leading Goalscorer 2011-12 and also the team's Players' Player of the Year. A member of the Stockport Senior Cup winning squad of 2014.</b>Nickname: Olly. DoB 1.3.84

Jamie Oldham

 

No relation to Mark (above) but he plays in the same Aerospace side. He joined Mellor in February 2006 and made his debut for the club in the Seconds in a 2-5 defeat at home to Denton Town. A left back or left side midfielder, he has quick feet and good balance and will be a good addition to the club.

Richard Nurcombe

Joined in September 2008.

James Powers

Made his Mellor debut as a sub for the Third Team in a 1-4 defeat at home to Old Stocs in November 2006

Jack Parr

Fifth team midfielder in 2006-07 but ended the 2007-08 campaign as part of the First Team set up. Scored his first goal for the Firsts in an away game at Hooley Bridge in April 2008. He continued to be part of the First Team in 2008-09. But he also appeared several times for the Seconds, scoring important goals, notably a hat-trick against South Manchester in May 2009. Second Team Players' Player of the Year 2011.

Nathan Patrick

 

Midfielder who joined the club in 2003-04 season and has played for the second and third teams. He was on Rochdale's books as a junior. Quick feet and good stamina. Later transferred to Chorltonians and played against Mellor in the April 2009 Whitehead Cup Final. A relative of the singer and entertainer Rikki Patrick, he's also a nifty disc jockey. DoB 3.11.82

Sam Parker

Striker who played mainly in the Fourth team in 2006-07. Fourth Team Leading Scorer in 2006-07. Moved up to play for the Thirds in 2007-08 and was the side's Player of the Year. A member of the Whitehead Cup winning side in April 2009. The Third Team's Leading Scorer in 2011-12. He left the club to start a new job in London in the summer of 2012.

Nick Parker

Returned to the club in 2004-05 after making the odd appearance in the second team. He has performed mainly in the thirds but could go higher. Brave, strong, he shows good control and an eye for goal. DoB 25.11.83

Mike Palmer

Looks a bit like Lewis Collins out of TV's The Professionals (click the cursor on his face to see) and was an instant hit after joining the club in the summer of 2003 with two goals for the second team in his third game (a friendly against Marfoam).... then a brace in his first league outing against Newton. He's also an excellent goalkeeper and centre-back and it was as a back four player that he initially forced his way into Mellor's First Team. Now he's a quality midfielder. Took over as club treasurer at the end of the 2006-07 season. Favourite description of opponents, referees, tonight's TV schedules...."s***". Second Team Players' Player of the Year and also leading goalscorer in 2007-08. Nickname: Mike. DoB 26.10.84.

 

Chris Petch

 

Full back, a stalwart of the Fourth Team from 2005 to 2007 and the Fifth Team in 2007-08, who played in the Hellawell Shield Cup Final in 2005. A marathon runner, he almost laps other players in training runs around the pitch. Joined the club committee in 2008. Nickname: Petch

Tim Phillips

Ex Disley first teamer who joined Mellor at the start of the 2004-05 season, playing mainly for the Third team. Made his second team debut away at Hooley Bridge in December 2004 and produced a cool, resolute performance at centre-back, interspersed with some accurate, raking passes. Played his junior football with Marple Athletic. Players' Player of the Year for the Third Team in 2004-05. Broke into the First Team in 2005-06. DoB 19.9.81

Lee Power
Phil Quinn DoB 2.10.78
Matt Quigley

Liam Quigley

Joined Mellor in the summer of 2005 and made his debut as a sub for the first team against Hazel Grove at home. A striker with some deft touches. Third Team top goalscorer in 2005-06. DoB 22.11.82

Chris Porter

Strike forward or winger when playing in the seconds, he has converted to midfield in the thirds. He certainly has pace - probably one of the quickest sprinters in the club - but needs a little more experience and vision to pick out the right pass. Had a taste of second team football in 2003 and then broke into the first team in 2003-04 after working hard in summer training. Returned to second team duty and notched some valuable goals. Season 2004-05 saw him swop to a midfield role in the third team. He's particularly effective when his girlfriend turns up to watch. Second Team Player of the Year in 2008. Nickname: Porter. DoB 11.6.83
