Against very plucky opponents who did not let their heads drop, Wyrley overcame the windy conditions with a super show of passing and movement and clinical finishing.
Highlights for each girl as follows: –
Nia Jay – very good distribution today and scored from the penalty spot
Leah Fanning – showed her usual energetic overlapping in support of Laura C. One of her forward runs resulted in the first penalty after being brought down
Amy Marshall – confident on the ball and almost dribbbled the whole length of the pitch before being dispossessed
Cath Davis – is there a girl (or indeed boy) who can head the ball as well as Cath? She too dribbled the length of the pitch and was about to pull the trigger when she was fouled for our second penalty
Saff Hicken – an excellent showing of long passing and another 20 yard screamer into the top corner
Laura Cumberledge – 3 goals including one where she opened her body to curl the ball into the top corner
Beth Crook – despite problems with new boots, was her usual self, using the ball confidently. Also depatched the first penalty with aplomb
Emily Quimby – showed quick feet for her first goal and her second was a trademark 25 yard special, dipping over the keeper
Laura Lindsay – played wide right and had a number of runs and crosses that caused havoc. Scored 4 but the pick was a fine looping header into the top corner from a corner
Sophie Shorrock – scored 4 goals clinically and was thwarted on a number of occasions by fine goal keeping
Jemma Clews – scored 6 – despite problems with new boots (think she owes Bethh a couple of goals as she borrowed Beth’s old boots). Pick of her goals was one smashed into the far corner after latching onto a Quimby through ball.
Super effort girls but praise to Warndon for competing to the end!
