It was a tough game back for the ladies today after a big xmas break and having many games postponed due to the weather.
The ladies was trying to play football the right way creating many chances but just finding it hard to finish in the final third.
The ladies went in at half time 2-0 down to Solihull.
After a big team talk and marks words the ladies came out pinning Solihull into there own half.
The first goal of the year finally came 20 mins before the end of the game when Rebecca Bown was able to get the ball through to Danni Jones who took her chance to score from outside the box.
The second came shortly after with a free-kick on the right side of the pitch from Savannah Howes who caught the keeper out to finish in the top corner.
The ladies wasn’t happy with coming back to level from 2-0 down and wanted all three points.
It came in the last few minutes when Sian Bonner who hadn’t been on the field for long drove down the wing to put a cross in the box which was nudged in by Jessica Wood.
It was a frustrating day for the ladies to start but there hardwork and never give in attitude showed to come back and win.
Man of the match went to Jessica Wood on the wing who never gave up running and was rewarded for all her hard work with the winning goal
The ladies bounced back from there FA cup defeat last weekend by beating kewford ladies 7-0 in the league.
Well done to the ladies for a solid performance and a massive well done to Jessica Wood on her man of the match.
Our U8 and U13 girls enjoyed tonight’s session with Birmingham City Women’s players Kerys Harrop and Brianna Virsalli! Very wet but enjoyable evening!
Great performance this morning which sees our girls win our feeder league with 3 convincing performances!
We now go into the highest league in the county, it’s going to get a lot harder so a challenge the girls need to step up for!
Ladies progress to the next round of the womens FA cup.
The ladies put in a great performance to beat Droitwich Spa ladies 3-0.
From the start the ladies put pressure on the other team. Playing some nice football out from the back.
Shifnal took an early lead with 15 minutes gone when Danni Jones pressed high with Jenna Boddison and won the ball. Danni then whipped a ball in that looped over the tall Droitwich keeper and into the back of the goal.
The ladies continued to create many chances and Jenna Boddison who was back after a suspension from last season had some one on one chances with the keeper but was unable to find the cool finish needed.
In the second half the ladies came straight out and a dangerous cross into the front post from Jessica Wood found Rebecca Bown who was able to slot the ball past the keeper at the near post.
The game was finally sealed when a quick release ball from goal keeper Terri Henderson found striker Jenna Boddison who was this time able to calmly slot the ball past the keeper, a goal that was much deserved for her.
Manager Mark Corbett said it was a game that the ladies seemed to always be in control off. All the ladies worked so hard creating space and pressing high, so it was really pleasing to see them getting back to playing the football I know they all can.
The ladies have been draw in the next round away against Wolverhampton wanderers on the 6th October.
Well done to the ladies who won 5-1 at the weekend against Kewford.
The ladies started the same as they finished last weekend, finding themselves making the game difficult. A early goal from Rebecca Bown meant the ladies went in at half time 1-0 up. But the second half the determination from the ladies started to show and they was showing what they could do. Neat passing and some great finishing gave the ladies a further 3 goals from Rebecca Bown and Danni Jones found herself grabbing a goal from a corner.
Its been really good to see the ladies all pulling together and working hard to get themselves out of a difficult patch they was going through. But fingers crossed the ladies can push on from the strong finish in the second half as they have a big game this weekend in the Womens FA cup.
It was a tough game for the ladies this week. It wasn’t the opponents who made it hard for the ladies they created there own problems. At times they was able to play some good football but just silly mistakes crept into there game.
However it was good to see that no matter how frustrating it was for them they all stuck together as a team and kept pushing.
In the end the result finished 2-2. The ladies felt this was points dropped but can take a lot away and build on correcting the mistakes.
The ladies are next in action this Sunday at home against new league opponents Kewford ladies. A team they know nothing about but the ladies will be looking forward to fixing last games errors and getting the 3 points. 💪😁 — with Rebecca-lee Bown, Danielle Smith and Jessica Wood.
