Wyrley started well enough and had the best of the first 10 mins, with the wind at their backs Coseley broke and Wyrley defence managed to turn the ball away for a corner. The ball was not struck well but managed to miss every Wyrley player and in the back off the net 1-0. This seemed to unsettle the girls and the makeshift defence of Jody Richards, Cath Davies, Charlie Abley and Kelly Highman were having difficulty with the high balls and yet another corner became another goal, 2-0. In midfield Chelsea Burns, Natasha Lilly, Leanne Mitchell and Vicky Shaw all tried to play their passing game but Coseley were chasing every ball down and not giving them a minute to compose themselves. Sophie Shorrock and Rachel Hall were making themselves thorns in the side of the coseley defence, and were unlucky on several occasions not to be on the scoreboard. Just past the half hour mark when Wyrley seemed to be a little more composed Coseley once again hit them on the break and chipped Lauren Cresswell in goal 3-0. It was definitely not Wyrley day when the forth goal went in just before half time, its hard to describe the goal really as it seemed to pass through Lauren.
2nd half saw a rejuvenated Wyrley, and were rewarded on 47mins with Leanne’s burst down the wing sending in a lovely cross for Vicky to smash home 4-1. Sophie made way for sub Emily Quimby who made some lovely passes and held up play well. 72 mins saw Vicky on a solo run, round the keeper and buried the ball 4-2. Several shots by Wyrley either hit the bar or shaved the wrong side of the post and Coseley were grateful for full time.
Given time and players being allowed back in their own positions this team will improve on a weekly basis.
