Cannock M1s 11 - 2 Sutton Coldfield

   Cannock travelled away to Sutton with usual goal keeper Chewy , Gooders and Harris all unavailable. They also had skipper Fleet struggling with a injured knee. Cannock left skipper Fleet and Jawanda on the bench to start. This seemed to spur Jawanda and the team on massively. Cannock started excellently with a lot of pressure and plenty of possession. They opened the scoring when the impressive Lewis Michael converted from a short corner. 
   The goals began to flow and the recovering yum yum addict Ed Martin scored two lovely goals. Jawanda then scored a thunderous reverse. Cannock continued to be aggressive and scored 3 more before half time including a lovely team goal starting with a classic Widdowson tackle and finished by Bloomer, his first goal since October. At half time the captain was happy with the first half performance. Particularly the team goal, Spencer Ley’s lung busting defensive run and Connor’s double save. 
   The second half was a closer affair with Sutton scoring first before Dippa got his first goal of 2020.  Cannock had a bad 10 minutes giving the ball away regularly. This resulted in Hudson and Lewis discussing different approaches to the game in calm, considerate, positive chat. After a dubious flick with giving to Sutton, young goalkeeper Connor made a tremendous saved down to his right. With other youngsters Cattell and Hames playing excellently in previous weeks, Fleet will have selection issues in the coming weeks. Cannock scores their 9th with a classic corner routine finished off by a backboard breaking slap from Fleet. Jawanda scored his 4th and 5th to finish the game. An excellent 11-2 win for the top of the table Cannock.


Cannock M2s 2 - 0 Buxton

   A youthful Cannock side , with a few wise old heads travelled seeking revenge against a Buxton side that frustrated Cannock earlier in the season. Cannock  quickly started to  dominate the game but found a resolute Buxton defence.  In defence and midfield teenagers Jake Luke, Sam Cattell, Jake Griffiths, Lewis Aisling, Lee Hames and Nat Yerbury all had excellent games and their skill and energy ultimately gained Cannock victory.
   In the first half Cannock had a credible chance for a penalty , if not a certain short corner when Buxton stopped the ball with a defenders boot that Virgil Van Dyke would have been proud of. Unfortunately the umpire ‘chose’ not to see this and when  Bruce Alcock pointed this out he received a green card. Shortly after Cannock,s dominance was rewarded when Joe Matthews made a smart finish. The game was wrapped up towards the end of the game from a short corner move finished by Bruce Alcock, after a brainwave from Raff.
   Every Cannock player contributed and played well. The pick of the bunch was Nat Yerbury but many others had could easily have been MOM. 

Mens 3s 20 (twenty) - 0 Newport 2s

Goals came from Dave Wigg (10), Lewis Bullman (4), Tommy Bhageerutty (4), Mat Bhageerutty and Tim Butler. 
Apparently we played quite well.


Cannock L1s 2 - 1 Lichfield

   Cannock ladies 1s travelled to lichfield for a friendly before the second half of their league kicks off next week. Cannock started the game well and had a lot of possession but a missed foot by the umpire led Lichfield to go 1-0 up
   Cannock pushed on and played some nice stuff eventually getting two goals through well taken short corners.  Cannock should have got a third but hatrick avoidance from the captain saw her stop the ball on the line with her foot 2-1 win both goals from sarah Martin

Cannock L2s 0 - 2 Blossomfields

Cannock L3s 3 - 3 WATS 

Cannock L4s 1 - 1 Dudley L2s 

   Cannock Ladies 4s welcomed Dudley 2s to Erasmus Darwin Academy expecting a tough game, having lost 6-1 in the away fixture. Cannock opened the match with their trademark positivity and were rewarded early on, when some attacking play in the opposition D led to the goalkeeper being drawn away from the goal. A cross from Rachel Hughes gave Vicky Rhodes the perfect opportunity to capitalise on the open goal, and Cannock went 1-0 up. Both teams continued to battle, but Dudley were rarely able to get past Julie Fisher, Tracey Carey and Tracey Lloyd-Smith to make a run on goal. As the first half drew to a close the visitors were visibly frustrated.
   Dudley equalised early in the second half, but were unable to make a further mark on the game thanks to strong work in Cannock's midfield and defence. Final score 1-1
