Cannock L2s 0 - 5 Repton 

Cannock L3s 2 - 1 WATS

   Cannock ladies 3s hosted Watts 2s at home. From the start Cannock put pressure on  allowing watts little of the ball. With cannock dominating the 1st half it was still 0-0 at half.
   Starting the 2nd half with a bit more of drive cannock finally found the back board with straight strike from Lucy Black in a well worked short corner. Cannock still maintained the possession but watts managed to break free and score with a strike hitting the top of the net. Keeping heads high Cannock knew another goal was in their sights. Winning another short corner Victoria Adams secures Cannock’s win making it 2-1. Another solid performance from the ladies.
POM was shared between Lucy Black and Pippa Hawkes with Watts giving it too Ashlin McAree.

Cannock W4s 1 - 6 


Cannock M1s 11 - 1

   This week saw Cannock welcome Bridgnorth 2nds to Erasmus Darwin. Cannock also welcomed Harry Jawanda and Stu Gooderham back into the side. As well as these two, Mandeep “Dippa” Sandhar and Dave “Bradda”  Bradbury made their first appearances of the season. Dippa had a varied game which included a missed penalty flick but also a lovely deflected goal. Bradda had an exceptional game with some fans claiming he reminded them of Everton stalwart Tony Hibbert.
   Cannock played extremely well in patches and were 4-0 up at half time. Experienced defender Hudson demanded more though and expressed his desire for more passing and running. The team duly delivered scoring another 7 goals in the second half. There were goals for Dippa, Martin, Bloomer (2) and Gooderham. Jawanda took the match ball home with him after scoring 5 well taken goals including a deflection from a Dippa shot at goal. Cannock’s final goal was scored with the last touch of the game from a fearsome Fleet reverse stick shot. 

Overall a very positive result for Cannock.


Cannock M2s 4 - 0 

Cannock M3s 2 - 1 Ludlow 2s

   Cannock's youthful side had to forgo the normal teenage Saturday morning lie in to make the trip to Shropshire for an 11 o'clock pushback.  From the start, it was apparent that Ludlow would be a useful side and Cannock would be pushed hard.
   As ever, Cannock started brightly and put pressure on the Ludlow defence, who were grateful.that their keeper was in fine form. Creating many good chances and forcing 4 penalty corners should have seen Cannock ease into the lead, but it was not to be. Ludlow were content to soak up the pressure and hit Cannock on the break, eventually forcing a short corner of their own. Confusion, following one of the defensive unit being sent to the halfway line, led to the unchallenged Ludlow receiver being able to lift the ball into the net over the advancing keeper, for an undeserved lead, which they kept until halftime.
   No panic in the ranks though. A reminder to do the basics well and to keep the work rate high was issued and within a few minutes of the restart, Cannock were awarded another short corner, which after some smart interplay, was converted by Jack Rolfe.
   Cannock continued to assert their dominance and create more chances. Ludlow tried hard to attack on numerous occasions, but these were snuffed out by the defence, admirably marshalled by SuperVeteran Nick Colclough.
   A Ludlow forward was brilliantly robbed by Jake Luke who drive the ball back 40 yards before an inside pass found Lewis Asling, who in turn moved the ball to Jsck Rolfe. Rolfe drove into the D and let loose with a fearsome low reverse stick shot to give Cannock a thoroughly deserved lead.
   The game was by no means over and much work had to be done to ensure came away with the points. The side's work rate paid dividends and the final whistle came, giving Cannock a satisfying 2-1 victory  and continuing the 100% start to the season. 

Man of the Match - Jack Rolfe

Badgers 3 - 3 Stone
