26/2/2017 League WWFC 1 v 4 Warwick

Wellesbourne Wanderers U16 1 - 4 Racing Warwick U16
Wellesbourne slipped to another disappointing home defeat and remain firmly anchored to the foot of the league table. The reverse fixture in September had finished 0-0 but that possibility disappeared with a needless goal conceded from Warwick’s first attack on three minutes, the initial threat dealt with but then the ball given away and swiftly despatched beyond Joe. WW had the advantage of a fair breeze in the first half and were to spend the next 35 minutes or so camped in the Racing half. However some committed defending and fine goalkeeping (again) limited the clear cut opportunities to a couple of instinctive saves to deny Richard, and an effort by James fired narrowly wide of the near post. A feature of this first period was the number of dangerous corner kicks that narrowly missed the far post while everyone made runs to the near. Please can someone take the responsibility to run for the back stick ! Warwick created two decent opportunities in the final actions of the half, the first a free kick well turned aside by Joe, then a vital goal-line clearance from debutant Matt. HT 0-1, WW with work to do.
Despite now playing against the wind, WW started the second half with intent. A fine turn by James on 46 minutes creating an opening but he fired high. Then a link up with Richard saw James’ shot saved. The pressure told on 52 minutes, with a fine jinking run down the left by James opening up the defence, this time Woody denied at close range by the keeper. For once the loose ball fell kindly with a simple finish for Richard, 1-1 game on. Joe M then drove an effort narrowly wide after more good work from James. Having worked so hard to get back on terms it was doubly frustrating when the lead was conceded again on 55 minutes, the ball pinging around the WW area with three opportunities to clear not taken before the ball was forced beyond Joe. Five minutes later it appeared effectively over as Warwick added a third, this one at least well worked as a swift break down the left outpaced the WW defence with an excellent finish in to the far bottom corner. James was having a storming second half and with another fine run found Richard who was again denied by the Warwick keeper. On 75 minutes Joe turned aside another dangerous Warwick free kick. However this game and arguably the WW season, was encapsulated within the final 20 seconds. Another great run by James to supply Oli, who could not get a shot away, partially cleared as far as Jason, whose ferociously struck effort was very bravely blocked. Ball hoofed down field, indecision between keeper and defence, simple goal. FT 1-4. Again the scoreline did not reflect the balance of play with both sides creating around a half dozen chances but Warwick taking four of theirs. MOM votes a real no-brainer - Sacha, Richard and Woody picked up a nomination each but the clear winner was James for an excellent performance which deserved a better reward.
