Today we welcomed stoke RTC
First period saw west mids take early charge working and moving the ball very well but more impressively the work rate and movement off the ball to create a large number of opportunities. The strength and pace from the width created by wes5 mids was hard to deal with .
Stoke players defended well and looked to counter on several occasions from the impressive Ashley Bryant on the right who caused a number of problems .
Some excellent goal keeping from Matthias Brandt was also stand out after been called into action on a number of occasions . .
It took some persistence and very good team play throughout the period,finished off by the impressive Dane Beese and Benjamin Johnson .
Second period saw stoke come into the game after west mids made some changes, the 2 wide players again were a constant threat and some neat play and through balls caused the west mids defence to be under a lot of pressure but some resilient defending and good starting position from the GK restricted the number of chances .
Stoke did find away through and a well deserved goal for ash Bryant .
For the final 2 periods west mids seem to have a lot of possession again moving the ball well, varying the play , switching the ball and always looked a threat going forward . A very disciplined performance , pressing well , showing desire and team spirit .
Some very pleasing individual performances taking on the challenge set always looking to develop
Goals from jack Humphrey, Sam carwithen ,Dane beese hat trick , benji johnson and Anthony (AJ) James
The football on display from both sets of players , technical ability , physically but most impressively players attitudes was a credit to both development centres and the opportunity within the JPL
We wish all the very best in the future development and opportunities
