Cannock M1s 2 - 3 West Bridgford

   Cannock’s young side battled well from the outset taking an early lead through a stunning reverse stick strike from Danny Swinnerton which was deflected into the roof of the net by Ed Martin. This lead was quickly extended by Callum Swinnerton following a weaving run from the half way line, through the West Bridgford defence before striking the ball from an acute angle into the far corner beyond the reach of the ‘keeper.
   The Cannock side ran the gauntlet of a physical opposition and a loud and vociferous opposition crowd; these factors combined, enabled West Bridgford to level the score by half time. Matters continued into the second half, and despite desperate defending by Cannock, the Nottinghamshire side grabbed the winner with just a few minutes to go. This league is proving a steep learning curve for Cannock, but their determination remains undiminished.


Cannock M4s 1 - 3  Stafford

   Cannock Mens 4ths put out a depleted side due to unavailability, which included a number of 5th teamers stepping up to the mark. Despite playing the better hockey and being the better side overall, Canmock didnt capitalise on their chances as effectively as Stafford did, coming out on the wrong side of a 3-1 scoreline.
   Cannock's goal came from the ever reliable Bruce Alcock, whilst Cameron Horn was Man of the Match for his powerful display in both defence and supporting the attack.


Cannock L2s 0 - 7 Birmingham 

   Cannock faced Birmingham University this weekend. Birmingham started the game extremely well, within the first two minutes they caught Cannock quickly on the break and managed to score. This was followed on very shortly with another goal. The score line was 2-0 within the first 5 minutes. Birmingham played with a high press and Cannock unfortunately found it difficult to get the ball out of defence. Cannock settled into the game and worked well to move the ball around the pitch. When recognising the ball must be played quickly Cannock saw a lot more success. Just before halftime Birmingham managed to score another goal. This resulted in Cannock losing 3-0 at half time.
   Birmingham again came out exceptional strong and managed to score another 2 goals within the first 5 minutes. Cannock continued to battled and work exceptionally hard in defence. But unfortunately were unlucky when attacking to convert open play or short corners into goals. The game resulted in Cannock losing 7-0. With Birmingham University performing exceptionally well and Cannock battling to the end. Well done to Jessica Smith who was player on the match.


Cannock L3s 2 - 0 Uttoxeter 

Cannock L5s 3 - 1 Dudley 
   The ladies 5s welcome Dudley to the Park. Cannock came out strong and in the first ten minutes Cannock put the pressure onto Dudley, capitalising from a defensive mistake a pass from the Captain Dora Adams brought Sophie Taylor into game driving the ball into the D and scored her first ever goal for Cannock Hockey Club. Dudley fought back and the game started to even out. Dudley managed to get through Cannock defence and score to level the game.
   Second half Cannock came out strong to dominating the half. Sophie Taylor was on fire and scored her second goal for Cannock. The 5s had numerous shot at goal, hitting the goal post twice missing several opportunity by an inch adding to Cannock frustration Dudley goalkeeper pulled out some great save to keep Cannock getting that third goal. In the end the goalkeeper was no match for the fantastic fifths after numerous shot fired at the goalkeeper Tracy Craig got onto the rebound and put the ball in the back of the net ending the game 3-1.

MOM - Sophie Taylor.
