Match Report:- Wyrley Juniors United U14’s Season 2014-15

Shield Group A

Wyrley Juniors United 1 v North Birmingham Celtic 0

United took all three points in this shield game and perhaps on opportunities created this was a fair result but credit goes also to NBC who never stopped working hard and created a few chances themselves. Conditions were heavy underfoot and with heavy rain  forecast, it had crossed my mind that the surface might deteriorate enough for the game to be abandoned. United and NBC both had bright starts to the game, United carving out a couple of half chances and doing everything but apply the finishing touch. Tom Wheeldon was a little unlucky as he went clear, his close range chip was saved well by the advancing NBC keeper. Callum Mowe in the United goal wasn’t really called into action during this half. United started the second half a little sharper  Wheeldon went clear again but couldn’t get the right connection on his right footed effort. Liam Morley was back to his best in United’s midfield, United’s pressure finally paid off when the ball ran kindly for United in their opponents box, the ball fell to Cory Crutchley’s feet, he moved the ball on quickly with one stride and then executed the finish perfectly to the keeper’s bottom right corner. United were looking for a team performance and all the lads were determined not to give anything silly away, NBC pushed players forward in the last quarter of the game and in worsening pitch conditions managed to turn the United defence a couple of times, one effort was superbly stopped by the alert Mowe in the United goal, advancing well from his goal to save with his feet. United saw the game out in the last few minutes as many players struggled to stay on their feet!
