Wyrley Meerkats 10 v Leahall 2 (10.10.15)

A short match report this week as “goodcop” stands in for our usual roving reporter who is currently suffering from an injured middle finger caused by overzealous use of a keyboard.

The Long Lane pitch looked wembleyesque in the early morning light. Freshly marked by “Badcop” who`d also extended his groundsman duties to mark the U11s pitch in red (note to groundsman, red mixed with white = pink except when the white is plastered all over a red Meerkats training coat!!)

Depleted in numbers this week, the Meerkats took time to find their feet against a much improved Leahall side who gave as good as they got early on and deservedly took the lead when a defensive/goalkeeping mix up ended with the ball firmly planted in the Meerkats net. Not a good start!!

Meerkats had to get their heads up and dig deep to break down the visitors but soon started some neat pass and move football with Eloise “the engine” Yates and Mya “the magician” Sidhu at the heart of most attacks.

It was only a matter of time before the equaliser came as the home side started to dominate and Milly “Dodger” Rogers soon found the net with some clinical finishing. This set the pattern for the rest of the game with Meerkats keeping their shape and playing some delightful “one-two” football.

The defence stayed solid with “Sturchy” marshalling the troops and Harley providing some classic Peter Kay “ave it” moments to clear the lines.

Final score ran out at Meerkats 10 Leahall 2 with Meerkats maintaining their unbeaten start to the season and remaining top of the league.

Well done girls, keep working hard in training, playing as a team and you will earn your just rewards

Managers Player was given to Katie “Peggy” Mitchell for her non-stop tackling and effort.

Parents player and the cuddly Meerkat thingymajig went to Milly Rogers for scoring seven and through her ability to pick defenders pockets is now known as “artful dodger” or “dodger” for short

Things to work on

Communication between defence and goalkeeper

Playing the simple pass

Using the width of the pitch
