Cracking Cricket

Year Five and Six children spent yesterday afternoon playing a series of cricket matches against other Sutton Coldfield Schools. They played brialliantly and respresented their school proud. Lots of parents and teachers from other schools comented on what a good team spirit they displayed.

The Year Six team came second and achieved silver medals, and the Year Fives came third in their competition to achieve bronze.

Well done to New Oscott Primary, who will be going on to represent Sutton Coldfield in the Birmingham Finals.

Overall a super afternoon.

Semi Final Joy As WHC Go Through To Final On Penalties

Coppice 2 WHC 2  AET.   WHC Win 4-2 On Penalties
A late switch from a neutral ground at Banners Gate saw WHC swapping their boots for trainers as they took to the astro at Coppice.
On a small hard pitch it was always going to be difficult to play passing football and WHC fell behind after Alfie inadvertently sliced the ball past Alex.  We were soon back level though as Josh slotted home from the penalty spot after a push in the box.   The second half was an even affair and with less than 60 seconds left on the clock Marcus put WHC in the lead following a parried shot from Mark 1-2.  That surely had booked a final slot for WHC  but Coppice had other ideas and forced a quick corner which was turned in with the last kick of the game to send the game into extra time. 2 -2.  Extra time saw WHC doing everything but score as the tie went to penalties.  
Alfie stepped up and slotted home followed by a Coppice miss 0-1.  Josh then hit the back of the net and Alex saved well 0–2.  Caius then hit the woodwork and Coppice scored 1-2.  Sam blasted home and so did Coppice 2-3.  Morgan then stepped  to seal the victory as the ball hit the back of the net and sent the boys wild 2-4.  
Well done boys and a final at Sutton Town FC as a reward for your efforts this season.

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.
