3D Dynamos – Delph, Dobcross & Denshaw 3D Dynamos Celebrating Football in the Community since 1992


With 2016 now behind us it is time to reflect on another successful year. Adding to that success the club is now half way through its 25th season.


From humble beginnings the club has maintained a period of steady growth over the years and now successfully runs teams ranging from our Soccer School (age 4-6) through to our two open age and a Vets teams (over 35’s). All the teams are run by F.A qualified coaches and all volunteers will be given the opportunity to gain the relevant FA coaching badges required. It is also the clubs mission statement ‘to provide the local community with a facility for the promotion of football for all age groups with particular emphasis on developing skills and enjoyment in youth football; striving to balance the achievement of success with the participation of all’ and we are proud to practice this philosophy throughout the club.


Soccer School – Mark Aston


The continued success and development of the club starts with Mark Aston and the soccer school. Mark creates an environment where the children get to enjoy football and learn new skills; in many ways it assists with the social side of the child’s development as well as setting them off on a football journey. As well as children playing football we are also on the lookout for enthusiastic parents, relatives or friends, to come on board with the club and volunteer their services. This could be coaching the teams as they progress from the soccer school into age groups or any other aspect of running a football club.


Junior and Youth Teams


The soccer school sets the children on their way, before they get into friendly competition with the junior leagues and onto competitive action with the youth set up. All of the following teams play their football in either the East Manchester Junior Football League or the Tameside Football League; both these leagues can be found on the FA Full Time website. The early years sees the teams play in a friendly league format with no results or tables published to allow the children to develop and enjoy the game before moving onto their teenage years when results, scorers and league tables are published. This section of the club is where it all began back in 1992; at that time there were no local clubs with a junior set up and 25 years on and we are still going strong.


1st and Reserve Teams – Huddersfield League


The success of any adult side is having the ability to feed the youth players at 16 years old into this set up. This allows the football journey with The Ds to continue beyond the youth set up and follows a route from soccer school beginnings. This is something the club is proud of and for the last four seasons this has flourished; discussions and training sessions are already planned with the current U16’s as we look to continue their journey. The Reserves are going into 2017 with a cup game and are confident of a good end to the current league campaign with all but one game being played at Home (Firgrove). Lewis in his first season as coach is starting to enjoy his time as player/manager and is assisting the younger players with their development as well as pushing players up to the 1st Team. Meanwhile the 1st team are enjoying life at the business end of Division 3 following promotion last season and currently sit 2nd in the league with a game in hand (top 3 gain Promotion):


Over 35’s


The final piece of the jigsaw sees the 3D Dynamos Vets team keep The Ds football journey going. The boys play every week for fitness, fun and camaraderie. If you are interested in joining them give Gordon a call for more details.
