Greater Manchester School Girls’ 4 - 3 Shropshire U14 School Girls’

Sophie Phillips (2), Jessica Walley

Shropshire had a positive start with Sophie Phillips scoring a quality long range strike within the first five minutes.

This confident lead was soon challenged when Greater Manchester scored an equaliser. Shropshire kept fighting for the next goal however, Greater Manchester took the lead after 25 minutes.

Sadly, Greater Manchester got a lucky third goal just before half time.

The second half Shropshire had a much stronger start and were determined to keep striving for another goal. Shropshire had many chances then eventually their hard work paid off when Jessica Walley had an amazing strike which would have beaten any goal keeper. This gave Shropshire hope as it was now only one goal between the sides.

Unfortunately, Shropshire conceded on the break and were pegged back once again. As usual Shropshire did not lose their fighting spirit and Sophie Phillips had an amazing run dribbling past their whole defense before slotting the ball past the goalkeeper.

Eventually, after an end to end performance Shropshire were valiant in defeat.

The next fixture is on Wednesday 21st November against Worcestershire at Lilleshall.

Many thanks, John Timmis

Shropshire U14 School Girls’ 3-2  Staffordshire U14 School Girls’

Freya Horler
Jada Mia Lee
Sophie Phillips

In a tightly fought contest the newly formed Shropshire team showed great character to dig deep and start their league campaign with a victory.

Both teams started well and created a number of chances, however, it was Shropshire who broke the deadlock. Charlotte Fletcher played a wonderfully weighted pass through to Freya Horler who had no trouble in smashing the ball home.

Staffordshire managed to find the net shortly after but Shropshire took the lead for a second time when Jada Mia Lee calmly slotted the ball past the keeper after some neat footwork from Victoria Mellor.

Minutes before half time Staffordshire equalised for a second time with a powerful finish.

The second half was played with great intensity and chances fell for both sides. It was a long range effort from Sophie Phillips just minutes from time that sealed the win for the new side.

The attitude and determination of the players cannot be faulted and I would like to thank parents for your support.

The next fixture is away on Wednesday 7th October against Greater Manchester.

Players should not feel downhearted if not selected for this fixture. As I would like to make sure that I give every player an opportunity to impress at this early stage. I value a large squad as it will be a long season and I am keen to keep competition for places healthy.

Many thanks, John Timmis
