Central Warwickshire Girls Football League Open Cup Final: – Wyrley U18s Girls 8 Leamington Lions 0

Despite very windy conditions and a poor pitch, Wyrley finished their season in style with an emphatic performance that was a snapshot in 90 minutes of why they have had a magnificent season.
The two teams tested themselves out in the first 15 minutes before Laura Cumberledge put the full back under pressure and her attemped clearance came back off Laura and flew into the net. This opened the floodgates as Wyrley’s confidence grew. A fine Jemma Clews cross led to Sophie Shorrock bundling home at the far post. Clews scored with a fine drive before Shorrock scored again.
The second half continued in similar vein. Hayley Turner provided a fine cross for Rachel Hall to volley home at the near post before Shorrock smashed in a left foot effort from a narrow angle. Nia Jay saved an effort that went straight at her before Clews fired home into the far corner. Clews scored a tremendous effort from 30 yards that dipped over the keeper to complete the scoring.

Highlights for each girl: –

Nia Jay – had little to do and held on well to a number of long range efforts
Leah Fanning – overlapped all night and linked up well with Laura Cumberledge
Amy Marshall – despite the windy conditions, her confidence was back to previous levels and came out of defence well on a number of occasions
Cath Davis – won everything in the air and came close with a header from a corner
Dom McKee – her strength was again evident and her long balls caused havoc
Laura Cumberledge – her opening goal set the tone and she worked tirelessly
Laura Lindsay – dominated midfield with Emily and came close from two headers
Emily Quimby – in addition to her usual array of fine passing, she closed down at every opportunity
Hayley Turner – fashioned a number of crosses in the second half that should have led to more
Rachel Hall – chased everything and was rewarded with a fine goal
Sophie Shorrock – worked very hard (I saw her jump for a header too!) and her left footed goal was excellent
Jemma Clews – combined very well with Sophie and Rachel and her third goal was unstoppable

A fantastic achievement from the girls: –

Played 26 Won 26
Unbeaten in 41 games since January 2010
257 goals scored in the season
Treble winners including the County Cup (only 1 of 3 Wyrley teams to have won a County Cup in 29 years).

But above all they have been a joy to coach and play the game as it should be played – on the ground with a passing style that I would pay to watch. Well done girls – you deserve everything you have achieved through hard work, commitment and dedication.
The Manager was extremely proud and lucky to coach such a talented bunch! Well done girls!
