SUTTON STRIKES 1 v 3 WYRLEY JUNIORS
Wyrley Pumas played a friendly with central warwickshire leagues Sutton Strikes this weekend, This game was played on a full size pitch, 10 v 10. A great chance for the girls to sample football on the larger surface. Wyrley Panthers helped out Pumas swell their numbers because of a school trip and a couple of girls not playing due to illness. So thanks go to Amy Cotterill, Shannon Sault and Chloe Coldicott for turning out for us.
The game started dramatically as Abi Hall went clear and put Wyrley 1 up within 20 seconds of the kick off. The rest of the half was pretty even, with neither keeper particularly stretched, Amy Cotterill was busy in midfield and unlucky not to score, but the rest of the half for Wyrley was spent adjusting to the larger pitch and with the girls getting used to playing with one another and in a new formation.
The second half started brightly for the home team and a cross from the left was coolly dispatched into the net at the far post. A couple of tactical changes and a step up in effort from Wyrley, saw Wyrley command most of the possession for the rest of the game, a good second half performance from Danni, Chloe, Shannon, Rollo, Abi and Lou saw Lou run clear to slot Wyrley’s second and Abi get her second and Wyrleys third in the best move of the game. Wyrleys backbone was supplied by the industrious Amy Cotterill the hard working Abby Judson also ably abetted by Jordan Parker, Ellie Whitehouse and with some confident keeping from Lauren Manton
