WHC 4 Coppice 0

WHC make it 6 wins out of 6 in all 2014/15 League and Cup competitions.
The boys played some lovely passing football, especially in the first half and scored 2 great team goals early on  with Alfie sliding the ball home to make it 1-0 after some great work from Josh down the right hand side  and then Morgan coolly finishing off another great team goal to double our lead after pretty much all 6 outfield players touched the ball in the buildup.  2 - 0  
The second half saw WHC firmly on top again and further goals from Marcus & a second for Alfie saw WHC coast to a 4 – 0 victory in the spring sunshine.
Full Time WHC 4 Coppice 0
Once again on the adjacent pitch, WHC fielded a second team to take on Coppice’s B team and again proved the quality that WHC have in Year 5 and 6 as they recorded a great 3 – 0  victory with goals  Mark,  Louis  and  Mark again with the third.
Well done boys! Next up is Hill West in the cup on Monday follwed by fellow title contenders Boldmere on Thursday next week. 

WHC 6 Rosary Catholic School 3

The second round of the 9 aside Birmingham Primary Schools Cup saw WHC drawn against Rosary school from Saltley. We decamped to Forge Lane in Little Aston to use the 9 aside pitch and goals there and soon the boys felt at home as Josh rattled in the first goal from 15 yards out 1- 0 . A second soon followed as Morgan nodded in at the back post following a lovely cross from Marcus 2-0.  Marcus then claimed one of his own with a bullet cross shot 3-0.  Rosary broke quickly and pulled one back before Morgan made it 4-1 at halftime with a speculative effort from  the touchline that looped in over the keeper.


The second half saw a quick goal for WHC from a header from Marcus 5 -1 before Rosary again reduced the arrears to 5-2 and then were awarded a penalty which Alex saved brilliantly. Marcus put the game out of reach as he completed his hatrick with another fantastic strike 6-2.  Rosary continued to battle and scored another well taken goal to make the final score 6 -3 but it is WHC that marches onto the next round. 

Well done boys!


Next up is Coppice at home - Thursday 19th March

WHC Claim 3 League Points and Make Quarter Finals Of The Cup After Late Deal Ratified By FIFA

WHC 2 Little Sutton 0


Due to fixture congestion a deal was hammered out behind closed doors at FIFA’s headquarters in Zurich to allow WHC and Little Sutton to play in a winner takes all game where the victor would claim not only 3 League points but would progress through to the Quarter Finals of the Sutton Coldfield Primary Schools Football Association Cup.  Mr Melville, Little Sutton’s Legal Team and Sepp Blatter were all delighted to reach an agreement and all welcomed that common sense had prevailed.


Game On: On a perfect afternoon for football WHC started brightly and were soon 1-0 up when Morgan burst down the left flank and pulled the ball back to an onrushing Alfie who calmly slid the ball home.  Marcus went close with a close range effort that the impressive LS keeper turned round the post.  Sam and Matty looked composed at the back and Alex was only troubled when a looping shot clipped the top of his crossbar.  Caius and Owen continued to keep the pressure on the LS goal with Josh getting up and down the pitch to set up attacks and frustrate the opposition strikers. Morgan again tested the imposing keeper as he darted through the heart of the LS defence only to be foiled by a good save.  Half Time 1-0


2nd Half:  Kicking up the slope in the second half did not stem the WHC attacks and we continued to have the lion's share of possession  going 2-0 up when Marcus stabbed home after Josh’s corner had been spilled.  In a mirror of the 1st half LS again hit the top of the crossbar with another looping attempt but WHC saw the game out and kept a good clean sheet.  Well played boys !

Full Time 2-0


At the same time WHC fielded another team to play against Little Sutton’s B team and to illustrate WHC’s strength in depth they recorded a fantastic 6-1 win with Joe, Louis & Mark all getting on the scoresheet. Stavros showed superb qualities in feeding the WHC attack from midfield and the ball is still resting its bruises from Jacob's energetic clearances. An outstanding debut performance from Harvey has Joe Hart worried for the next England team selection. And finally, the year five boys James, Louie, Louis and Tom all performed extremely well and showed good promise for the 2015/16 team next year. 


A really great afternoon of football enjoyed by all. Many thanks to all parents for your continued support. Next match up is the Rosary Catholic Primary Birmingham Cup Match this Thursday followed by Coppice next week. Stay tuned for further updates.

WHC Continue Football Success

January has seen the Whitehouse Common Football Team begin competing on a bigger stage in the Birmingham Primary School Association's competitions. Normally WHC compete within the Sutton District league, however due to our success at the start of this season we have been nominated (alongside Walmley Juniors) to represent the Sutton Coldfield district.

At the beginning of January the boy's took part in a weekend competition and on Tuesday of this week the boy's played in their first game for the H.M.S Birmingham Shield knock out tournament. 


See below two reports about the events by official WHC team reporter -Mr Davage (Morgan's Dad). 


West Midlands County Primary Schools Football Tournament And Another Final!

On the Saturday morning of the 10th January, 10 boys from Year 5 and 6 took centre stage at Wolverhampton Wanderers training ground as the Whitehouse Common Football team represented Sutton Coldfield against Primary schools from all over the Midlands.

Three group games saw WHC finishing top of the group with a 0-0 draw against St Lawrence from Kings Norton with Tom making his WHC debut , a 1-1 draw against Fairhaven from Dudley with Marcus Davis netting after a good ball in from Morgan and a 2-1 win against Wheeler’s Lane from  South Birmingham with a super strike from Josh R and once again Morgan setting Marcus free for him to slide home the winner .

After a brief delay for a hailstorm of almost biblical proportions WHC lined up for a semi-final against Oldswinford from Halesowen and an early goal from Alfie following some good pressing from Josh was enough to see a 1-0 victory with Sam clearing off the line, a great save from Alex and Matty  and Louie helping to ensure we kept a clean sheet.

The final saw us meet Fairhaven again with them having beaten Perry Beeches from Aston in their semi-final -  despite WHC having the better of the first half with Caius going close we couldn’t get the all-important first goal.  This fell to Fairhaven with a well worked free kick and  proved to be the difference which meant a second tournament final loss but the boys should be proud of how well they played and how well they represented WHC and Sutton Coldfield.

WHC  6    Woodhouse Primary Academy  2

The first round of the 9 aside Birmingham Primary Schools Cup saw WHC drawn against Woodhouse Academy from Quinton.  

After a nervous wait of around 45 minutes the Woodhouse minibus rolled into the WHC car park to cheers from the boys (and parents) who were fearing a no show!


Kicking down the slope in the first half WHC made the most of the advantage and soon took the lead with a back post header from Morgan  1- 0.  Alfie  soon made it two bundling the ball in after a parried strike from Caius 2-0.  WHC continued to have the bulk of the play and the opportunities and restricted Woodhouse to a single strike on goal which was well tipped over from Alex.  Caius then made it 3-0 with a strike into the bottom corner.


Half Time 3 – 0

The second half saw Woodhouse coming out with renewed determination and started to create some chances but WHC wrestled control back and furthered their lead through a Josh  penalty and good goals from Owen and Louie.  Woodhouse pulled 2 goals back after the WHC defence got a bit excited and decided to join the attack but deserved something for the effort they put in during the game.


A good performance on a tight pitch for 9 aside and on we go to the next round!


Full Time 6 - 2


Aston Villa Football Tournament

So Close !!!!

Aston Villa Tournament at Sutton Town FC

The Aston Villa schools  6 aside tournament saw the Year 6 boys competing for a chance to represent Sutton Coldfield and play at Villa Park. 16 of the town’s best football teams assembled under leaden skies  at Coles Lane on Sutton Town’s 4G pitch.

2 groups of 8 teams played a round robin league format of 6 minutes each game.   The boys started slowly but by the seventh and final league game against Hill West they were getting near to playing the football we know they can play.  They finished the group stage with 4 wins, 2 draws and 1 loss.   As the final whistle blew for the last group game the heavens saw that as their cue to open !!!  The rain started and didn’t stop until later that day !!  Lunch was suspended for those teams making it through to the quarter finals as it was decided the boys just needed to play through as they were as wet as they could possibly be already.

WHC  drew Maney Hill in the Quarter Final and despite the rain played some lovely football with Josh, Morgan, Alfie and Caius really starting to pass the ball around with ease. Sam and Alex looked calm and composed at the back we ran out 2 – 0 winners and set up a semi final against Highclare.   Once again the boys dominated the game and again ran out comfortable 2 – 0 winners with Matty and Mark both coming on and looking at ease in this prestigious event. 

The Final saw us against one of the largest primary schools in Sutton – unbeaten Walmley -  and to add to that challenge we also knew that they had 3 academy players in their team.  Just to add a bit more spice to the game their best player was a good friend of most of the WHC team!  It was going to be interesting but the boys had only conceded 2 goals in 9 games and so were feeling confident.   Just as the boys and the crowd thought conditions couldn’t get any worse what appeared to be a freak monsoon appeared over the Coles Lane pitch ! 

WHC started the brighter and 6 minutes in to the 10 minute final we had struck the inside of the post and clipped the top of the bar.  Walmley always looked dangerous though and a speculative long range effort skipped off the artificial turf and with the howling wind at it’s back ended up in the back of the WHC net.  The boys then had to chase the game knowing the clock was ticking down and continued to throw everything at Walmley but 2 good goals in the last 90 seconds saw Walmley run out winners and break WHC hearts!

After a slow start the boys represented WHC fantastically but the disappointment on their faces was clear to see as the final whistle blew.  In recognition of their efforts the Aston Villa coaches gathered the boys together and told them that they had played some of the best passing football that they had seen from any school in the tournament this year   - really nice  to hear and well deserved.  We wish Walmley well in the final and hope they win the competition for Sutton Coldfield!
