Shropshire 0-3 West Midlands

Another solid performance which deserved a better outcome. Shropshire created some great chances of but luck didn’t seem to be on their side.

They look forward to welcoming Rhondda Cynon Taff Schools FA for an end of season friendly on the 2nd April.

Staffordshire 2-5 Shropshire

Jess Walley
Sophie Phillips
Jada Mia-Lee (x2)
Emily Fletcher

The Shropshire U14 Girls’ produced a well structured performance against a lively Staffordshire outfit.

It was Staffordshire in fact who took the lead within the first ten minutes as their striker slotted the ball past debutant keeper Mia Davies.  

Shropshire worked their way back into the game having large spells of possession, which in turn resulted in some good goal scoring chances.

Jess Walley levelled the scoring with a curling shot from outside the area.

This gave Shropshire the boast they needed and Sophie Phillips soon scored their second as Izzy Oldroyd outpaced her opponent down the right hand side. Sophie produced some great footwork inside the area but was unfortunate not to add to her tally.

At 2-1 Shropshire needed a third goal to kill the game off. Jada Mia-Lee timed her run superbly well to pass in a fumbled shot from Jess Walley.

4-1 - Jada bagged her second goal after some great combinations from the front players.

Staffordshire caught Shropshire out on the break to get a goal back but the game was decided with an unbelievable long range shot from a modest Emily Fletcher which fired passed the keeper into the top corner.

It was a great team performance where Shropshire had four players making their debut; Lucie Lew Green, Millie Jones, Mia Davies and Eliza Craig who all fitted it extremely well.

Emily Fletcher was awarded Girl of the Game.

The next county fixture is on Wednesday 20th March, 2019 at Lilleshall Sports Centre against West Midlands.

Many thanks,

West Midlands 4-0 Shropshire

Shropshire produced a brave and hardworking performance against a very successful West Midlands team.

The girls conceded some very early goals which made the task in hand even harder but they were resilient enough to roll up their sleeves and give their all in the second half.

The girls worked tirelessly to win the ball back and in turn produced some very decent opportunities for themselves.

Shropshire are scheduled to travel to Staffordshire on Monday 28th January (7PM KO) for their reverse fixture.

Parents are to text John to confirm the availability of their daughter before he will confirm the match day squad.

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.

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
