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.

8th Straight Win Has Mr Melville Reaching For The WHC Record Books

Boldmere 1 WHC 3
 
With the games coming thick and fast WHC took to the field in this league fixture against another unbeaten side with confidence coursing through their veins and they started that way by pummelling the Boldmere goal until it gave way following a brilliant move that saw Alfie putting in Caius to see him square a lovely ball to Morgan who cut inside his man and slotted the ball into the bottom corner 1-0.  The old adage that you are at your most vulnerable straight after scoring a goal came true as we conceded at a poorly defended corner 1-1.  This only served to spur the boys on and Caius put us back in front with a brave header.  Half Time 1-2.
 
Kicking up the slope in the second half we expected the tables to be turned in terms of chances but we still looked the more likely to score as Alfie’s scorpion kick drifted agonisingly wide.  It wasn’t long before we put the game out of reach when Josh beat two defenders and blasted home 1-3.  A fully deserved victory which saw Boldmere unable to cope at times with the high energy fast passing WHC game – great teamwork boys.
 
Next up is Perry Beeches in the HMS Cup on Tuesday 14th April.

WHC March Into The Semis

Hill West 1 WHC 2
 
The boys arrived with no Marcus, who was missing through illness, and no goalkeeper until Alex arrived fashionably late but just in time for kickoff!  WHC had to wear the bibs as the away team due to a colour clash with Josh, Morgan and Alfie slightly annoyed that they didn’t get to wear the netball bibs they wore last year in the same fixture claiming it was a good luck thing but the parents weren’t so sure as Josh was overheard saying he liked the Goal Defence one last year! 
Hill West Match
WHC piled on the pressure from the off and eventually the deadlock was broken with Morgan sliding the ball home after being set free for a one on one with the Hill West keeper 0-1 .
 
The half continued in the same vein with Alfie hitting the bar and the keeper saving well from Josh, Caius and Morgan.  The score somehow stayed at 1-0 until half time which hopefully wouldn’t come back to haunt us.
 
The second half was a much more even affair and Hill West began to show why they are also unbeaten this season but WHC continued to probe with Sam looking comfortable at the back and soon enough Alfie got onto a through ball and doubled WHCs lead 0-2 with 5 minutes to go.  WHC seemed to think that the job was done only to take their foot off the gas and allow Hill West to pull one back 1-2 and create a nervy last few minutes!
 
A couple of special mentions go to Lois from Hill West who played fantastically and showed that girls football has a bright future and to Matty who was the unsung hero of the victory and who singlehandedly nullified the tricky Hill West striker who ended up showing his frustration with some interesting tackles which Matty took in his stride. Semis here we come!
