Cannock M1s 5 - 1 Stratford

   Cannock turned up to Stratford looking to improve on last weeks lost by converting their chances. The visitors got off to a flyer with 2 early goals from the captain (Fleet), a well positioned poke and then a well converted team goal finishing in a delightful top bin smash! 
   Cannock extended their lead through another precision pass from Lewis Michael to Ed Martin, who tapped it in from the penalty spot.  As the half went on Cannock continued to push forward and took a well earned 4th goal before the break from Ed Martin bagging his second.
  After some hallucinating defending, Stratford got back in the game to make it 4-1. Cannock’s cocktail of goals was complete when Greg Bloomer did well to control a wayward pass to score. Cannock attacked more and missed a number of chances. With less players Cannock began to tire and lead less. A few choice words were on the tip of tongue of the captain after some lazy tracking to finish the game. Overall a well earned win from a Cannock side still missing 5 of their key players.

Cannock L1s 0 - 9 Sutton Coldfield 

   Cannock ladies 1s suffered a heavy defeat to a very experienced Sutton side losing 9-0 to shock the away side in their first game back in the national league.

Cannock L2s 4 - 1 Towcester 

Cannock L3s 9 - 0 Bloxwich L2s 

   Cannock ladies 3s we’re looking to improve on the loss from last week, they attacked the game from start to finish, allowing opponents Bloxwich 2s to very little of the ball. Soon enough it paid off and captain Lucy Black found the net. They continued to push Bloxwich to their limits allowing Cannock to get 3 more goals before half time. Starting the 2nd half as the 1st half ended cannock found the net very quickly and kept Bloxwich out of the game. This continued throughout with the game with the final result 9-0 to Cannock. Goal scorers: Lucy Black 5, Pippa Hawkes 2 and 1 each for Vicky Adams and Jenny Collins. Bloxwich gave Lucy Black POM and Cannock’s Pom Lucy Black closely followed by Vicky Adams. An excellent performance from the ladies.

Cannock L4s 3 - 0 WATS 

   Following a convincing win last week Cannock 4s were in high spirits as they welcomed WATs 4s to Erasmus Darwin Academy.
   The visitors were immediately under pressure, with Cannock repeatedly testing 10-man WATs defences until a powerful assist from Rachel Hughes meant Mandy McColl put the home team ahead within the first 5 minutes. Cannock continued to press hard but were unable to find the back of the net, and towards the end of the first half a resurgent WATs had several shots on goal, requiring some nifty work from keeper Jess Smith.
   Cannock approached the second half with purpose, keeping the ball firmly within the opposition half of the pitch. The home side made several attempts on goal but couldn't hit the mark, until Hannah Jordan put Cannock 2-0 up following a pass from Rhia Mickelwright. WATs defence was resilient, but after a short corner was awarded close to the end of the match, Rachel Hughes went for a slower ball off the straight strike, which Rhia Mickelwright nipped in by the post.

Final score: 3-0.  POM: Rachel Hughes and Abby Rhodes.


Saturday 21st September. 

Cannock L4s 5 - 0 Lichfield 7s 
   Cannock Ladies 4s welcomed Lichfield 7s to Erasmus Darwin Academy for the first match of the season. Cannock had first pushback and immediately put 10-man Lichfield under pressure, keeping the ball firmly in the opposition half until Vicky Rhodes hustled the first goal of the season past the keeper. Cannock kept up the pressure and a short corner soon followed which Kim McColl converted to put Cannock 2-0 up within the first 7 minutes. Cannock continued to test the Lichfield defences until new captain Emma Hunneyball slotted in the third goal of the match.
   Lichfield came out fighting in the second half, but Cannock were on the hunt for more goals and Rachael Hughes made a fantastic pass into the D, and Mandy McColl powered the ball into the back of the goal. A relentless drive down the wing from Jayne Flanagan resulted in a short corner, which Georgia Lloyd converted in a straight strike to round off the match.
