Posted by Nobody on 3 September 2017

Cannock Men's First Team edge close their league opener against Leeds with a heavy pre-season fixture list and this weekend held the Cannock Cup, 12 top level teams all competing for the trophy. Premier League Beeston maintain their trophy but there was plenty to be hopeful about for Cannock who beat both Preston & Harleston Magies 2-1 during the competition.

Cannock Men's Section started the 2017-18 season with two friendly fixtures against Old Halesonians.

Cannock XI 1 - 7 Old Halesonians 2s

First up was a joint 4/5th team who played against the hosts 2nd XI, a young Cannock team found themselves chasing the game throughout the majority of the fixture and despite some good performances from youngsters Evan Alcock and Lewis Michael Cannock were condemned to an 7-1 defeat. 

Cannock XI 2 - 2 Old Halesonians 1s

Next up were a combined 2/3s XI to face Old Halesonians 1st XI. Cannock whose players only arrive minutes before push back due to heaven traffic stared unsurprising slow and despite lots possession around the back Cannock were unable to challenge the home side. Half time they found themselves 2-0 behind. On a warm day players from both sides tired early and the game stretched out, Tony Blower had to be on form to keep Cannock in the game but a Danny Swinnerton double brought Cannock level. Both sides pushed for a winner but the game ended 2-2. A good run out for all involved.

Cannock Ladies 2s 2 - 3 Harborne Ladies 1s

Cannock Ladies 2's first friendly of the season took place away from home against Harborne Ladies 1's who are placed in the league above.
Cannock started well with a lot of new faces in the side, but despite this Cannock dominated from the start. Soon the experience of the Harborne midfield started to show and keeper Gemma Pryce kept Cannck in the game with some incredible saves. As the half went on the home sides pressure was too much for Cannock to absorb and scored two goals very close to half time.

Unfortunately Harborne hit another straight from the first move of the second half putting Cannock 3-0 down. With some successful plays through midfield Cannock won two penalty corners in quick succession and with it came two goals, from strikers Holly Turbill and a nifty deflection from Nic George. Cannck fought hard and defended the half well but were narrowly beaten 3-2. A great start to the pre-eason against a team competing high up in the league above.
