Pete Checketts, Clive Stokes, Steve Nicholls, John Cooper, John Green, Dave Seddon, Trevor Noakes, Tony Drew, Stewart Dudwell.
The first match in the 2018/19 league was played at Boldmers St Michaels kick off 5 pm.
Shard End offered stiff resistance and Hartshill had to work very hard, making numerous substitutions before getting the breakthrough late in the first half with a low shot by John Cooper past the Shard End goalkeeper after good work by Steve Nicholls, John Green and Trevor Noakes to create the opportunity to score. Hartshill continued to control the game in the second half and our goalkeeper Pete Checketts had very little to do. Tony Drew and Stewart Dudwell also played their part in securing our victory.
