Another cracking game was served up by two very good teams in this top of the table clash.

RPS had the better of the opening exchanges, without creating a real chance, before Wyrley scored 2 quickfire goals. A superb Becky Jones cross was headed back across the keeper and in off the post for the opener by Jemma Clews. Jones then doubled the lead by volleying home a corner from Emily Quimby.
RPS weren’t finished and they pressed really well across the park to restrict space. They took their opportunity to reduce the arrears very quickly and latched on to a defensive slip to open their account.

2 – 1 half time.

Nia Jay was called into action and was brave to thwart the RPS forward at her feet. Wyrley showed their quality finishing when Dom moved forward from right back and smashed a screamer into the left hand roof of the net.
Laura Cumberledge then raced through on the left, cut inside and hit an unstoppable shot into the right hand corner – a goal worthy of winning any game.

Saff Hicken was on hand to clear an opening well saved by Nia as RPS searched for a way back.

4 – 1 final score.

Highlights for each of the girls

Nia Jay – a busier day than usual and saved two 1 on 1s bravely
Leah Fanning – a solid performance and did the simple things well
Amy Marshall – a number of fine blocks and headed clearances
Dom McKee – a couple of trade mark turns and took her goal very well
Saff Hicken – was in the right place at the right time to block a goal bound effort
Lauren Gilbert – some super last ditch tackles on show – again also did the simple things well
Cath Davis – her heading prowess again on show
Becky Jones – her early balls into the box caused problems, created the first and scored the second
Hayley Turner – played on both wings and put in a good shift
Beth Crook – made a midfield 5 in the second half that gave more time for Emily and Laura on the ball – worked tirelessly
Emily Quimby – a good corner for the second goal
Laura Lindsay – worked well throughout and was determined to come out on top against her ex team mates
Laura Cumberledge – a tremendous goal to seal the points
Sophie Shorrock – worked hard and also laid the ball back – I did see it Soph!
Jemma Clews – worked non stop and her header across the keeper was textbook

Well done girls!

Good luck to the RPS players in the future as I know our players get on well with them.

    A true reflection of the match. The match report from the opposition certainly makes for ‘interesting’ reading. I certainly hope that I was graceful in defeat many years ago when my team played Wyrley! Well done Ladies on a win against a very good Rps team – A credit to ladies football!

    Hi Keith – you were always very gracious in defeat and gave us many a scare – particularly a young Miss Jones! And you are still graceful – must be that slimline figure you have – ha ha!
