With a full compliment of players for both teams supposedly reducing space on the field, Wyrley’s performance today was back to their fluent, confident best despite windy conditions.

Wyrley took an early lead and soon doubled it, before being pegged back with perhaps the only opportunity Longbridge had in the game. Wyrley then moved through the gears to maintain attack after attack. Despite this, the Longbridge girls never dropped their heads.
Goal scorers were Sophie Shorrock 4, Emily Quimby 3, Rachel Hall 2, Jemma Clews 1, Laura Lindsay 1, Laura Cumberledge 1 and Lauren Gilbert 1.

Highlights for each girl: –

Nia Jay – distributed the ball well
Leah Fanning – as usual, moved forward well and had a couple of close attempts
Dom McKee – her usual driving forward runs and mixed in with some simple effective passing
Amy Marshall – snuffed out everything that came her way
Lauren Gilbert – scored her first goal for Wyrley with a brave header at the far post
Rachel Hall – her first goal was well taken, a smart turn on the edge of the box and a powerful shot into the far bottom corner
Laura Lindsay – gave a lesson in simple passing and took her goal well
Emily Quimby – 3 powerful efforts from outside the box for her goals, including the third that still has the post shaking before going in. Even completed a ‘Dom’ turn!
Becky Jones – linked up well with Jemma and Sophie and put in numerous dangerous crosses
Laura Cumberledge – also took her goal well and fed Leah when overlapping
Sophie Shorrock – scored 4, closed down well and ALMOST jumped for the ball when heading just over
Jemma Clews – scored from the spot after a handball amd her all round game was very good

Wyrley now have one more league game and the Open Cup Final left to complete an exceptional season.

Keith Hardy and his family were also pleased to see United win the League – again!
