LICHFIELD DIAMONDS 1 v 3 WYRLEY JUNIORS
Wyrley started confidently and secured a fair amount of possession in the first quarter of this game, but were caught out by a Lichfield break and the unlucky Lauren Manton in the Wyrley goal was beaten at her near post, Wyrleys response was superb and each member of the team rose to the challenge and worked hard to get back into this game. An excellent move started down the left flank, the ball played into Lucy Wells who turned to slide the ball into the path of Danni Biggs who took the pass in her stride and then dispatched a shot low into the bottom corner of the net. Wyrley’s tails were up and should have gone 2 up just before half time, when Chloe Coldicott challenge for the ball, the ball ran to Wells whose shot struck the top of the crossbar. The second half saw both teams working hard to take the initiative, during the first half hour neither keeper was seriously tested, but with about ten minutes to go Wells breached the Lichfield defence and hit a good shot which the unfortunate keeper could only parry into the corner of the net. To complete the win Lizzie Scoines found Coldicott who shot accurately into the corner of the net just before the final whistle.
Well done Jaffa, Nadine Costello, Kate Lawton, Jordan Parker, Abby Judson, Abi Hall, Meg Titley, Ilora Anderson, Alicia Baker, who all played their part in this excellent team performance but are spared a mention in this match report . Also, a special mention for Hayley Leese and Ellie Whitehouse, Karis Foreman who are committed squad members but didnt get on the pitch today.
