Rounders Victory

Year 6 played against Four Oaks in a rounders friendly this evening. Two teams played and won both matches! The scores were 27 to 11 1/2 and 7 1/2 to 6 1/2. Well done to all the children who played!

We are now looking forward to the boys tournament on Monday at John Wilmott! 

Semi Final Heartache

Walmley 3 WHC 1

WHC took to the field against Walmley for the second time in 5 days – this time in the Semi Final of the 9-aside HMS Birmingham Cup.   The previous games we have played in this competition have been played on 9-aside size pitches with 9 aside goals but as we turned up at Walmley we were faced with one of the smallest 7 aside pitches we have played on, small goals and very long grass !  That meant it was never going to be a footballing spectacle and WHC decided to go long ball with Sam shooting directly from all of our goal kicks!

Half time came with the scores even at 0-0 and with only 9 players (due to Alfie failing to make the trip through illness) compared to Walmley’s 12 man rotating squad we knew the second half would prove a challenge.  It turned out that way as the boys went 2-0 down after an own goal by the unfortunate Caius and another deflected shot looked to have put WHC out of the competition.  The boys had other ideas and went on all out attack. Marcus slotted home after their keeper had parried a shot from Morgan to reduce the deficit 2-1.   Into the last 5 minutes and WHC continued to pile on the pressure with the tireless Josh firing just over and a strong penalty shout for handball not being given.  Into the last 60 seconds and with most of the WHC team committed to levelling the scores Walmley struck on the break and settled the tie with virtually the last kick of the game. 

Full Time 3-1  




So Close! WHC Thwarted By Late Winner

WHC 1 Walmley 2     

WHC just needed a draw to go top of the Sutton League after Walmley had dropped points at Boldmere but Walmley was always going to be the toughest game of the season as the biggest primary school in Sutton, meaning lots more players to choose from and boasting 3 academy players in their squad. Having said that you wouldn’t have known as WHC battled and held their own to take a deserved lead into halftime after Alfie bundled the ball in at the back post following a lovely ball in from Caius.  Halftime 1-0

The second half saw Walmley coming out fired up and soon levelled following a good header from a corner 1-1.  With 10 minutes to go a lovely ball in from Morgan saw Marcus get a good connection but the ball drifted agonisingly wide of the far post.  With the clock ticking down Walmley pressed for the winner and Alex made two fantastic saves.  Just as the end was in sight WHC legs started to tire as Walmley’s larger squad started to show and they punished us with a lovely winner which flew in off the post from 20 yards out. 

Full Time 1-2

Monday sees the chance for retribution with WHC playing Walmley in the HMS cup. 

Whitehouse Common Girl's Football

Whitehouse Common fielded a girl's football team in the Wilson Stuart Tournament at Wyndley Leisure Centre last night. Despite not winning, the girls had a great time in the summer sunshine and demonstrated the excellent team spirit and resourcefullness that all WHC children show in abundance. 

Well done girls.



WHC Cruise into the Semi Finals in The Spring Sunshine

Perry Beeches 0  WHC 2

 With the sun shining the Under Armour had been put away as the boys took to the pitch in the Quarter Finals of the Birmingham 9 aside Cup against Perry Beeches Primary who had recently won the Aston Schools' Premier League and were unbeaten.   This didn’t phase WHC as they set about passing and moving with 5 really good first half chances all whistling past the same right hand post but the breakthrough wouldn’t come. Half Time 0-0.

 The second half started the same way but it wasn’t long before Josh prodded home from close range to take a deserved lead 0-1.   Against the run of play Perry Beeches broke but Alex denied them with a fine stop which left the WHC supporters scratching their heads as to how the game was still in the balance.  Fortunately Caius put the game beyond doubt with 3 minutes to go when he struck the ball from around 20 yards out into the top corner – a cracking strike and sealed a really well deserved semi final place. 

Full Time 0-2

Next up is Walmley Juniors in the League and then again in the HMS cup.
