CITY ARE CHAMPIONS!



WCWFC 3 - 0 Shifnal Town Ladies 


City sealed the league title after an impressive win at Sixways in the last home game of the season.


City made a lightning start after just a minute, from the off they got on the attack which caused a bit of pinball in the Shifnal box. Fassnidge and Mitcham both had efforts blocked but eventually, the loose ball fell to Fassnidge who slotted the ball in the bottom left corner to give Worcester the quick lead.


After the first ten minutes, Shifnal settled down into the game and looked to try and create chances of their own. Their first real opportunity fell to their number seven after she nodded the ball past Dolloway to get one-on-one in the box with Stolt. The Shifnal striker tried to dink it over the onrushing Stolt but the City keeper made themselves big to make a huge save.


After that, there wasn’t too much to report back on, City mostly dominated possession with Shifnal trying to hit the Worcester defence on the counterattack. One of those attacks led to a Shifnal free kick on the edge of the box which Stolt saved comfortably.


Moments later Fassnidge had a go from distance after good City possession which sailed just over the bar. From the Shifnal goal kick, they managed to get up the pitch and into the City box. The Shifnal winger cut inside from the left, getting past Baldwin, but her close-range effort was firmly blocked by Stolt preventing an inevitable Shifnal equaliser.


Just before halftime, Worcester so nearly doubled their lead after Ritson’s corner was met by Dolloway but the City defender’s header was blocked on the line by a Shifnal defender. Not long after the halftime whistle blew with City leading 1-0.


City started the second half with intent like they did the first, after just two minutes a floating effort from inside the right-hand side of the box found the top corner from Sophie Griffiths to give Worcester a bit of breathing room.


Worcester soon got their third after great work from Mitcham to drive towards the box, she had the composure to look up and play the ball across to Fassnidge who controlled it, created some space from the defender with some neat footwork and calmly placed it into the bottom left corner. 


The Shifnal keeper produced a great save after Davies put through Mitcham with a defence-splitting through ball, Mitcham went for a little dink over the keeper but she got a strong hand to it to keep it out.


It then got to the point of the game where every City fan would have been checking their watches for that final whistle and when it blew the celebrations began as Worcester City Women were officially the league champions which earned promotion into the National League (Tier 4).

Broadway U18 1-4 WCWFC U18


In their penultimate game of the season, City U18's delivered an outstanding performance against Broadway U18's, in which every player demonstrated teamwork and determination.


City started the match brightly, taking control from the opening whistle. The breakthrough came early, in the 9th minute, when Ellie won the ball outside the box, she forced her way through on the left, rounded the goalkeeper, and slotted the ball into the right side of the net, putting City ahead 0-1.


Broadway attempted to get back into the game, focusing their attacks down the right flank, but they were consistently thwarted by Freya's intelligent and energetic defending. The midfield duo of Connie and Keira dominated the centre, winning challenges and distributing the ball excellently to their teammates.


City doubled their lead in the 27th minute. Once again, Ellie proved unstoppable, winning the ball on the right side of the box and sending a precise shot past the keeper into the left-hand post, making it 0-2.


In the second half, Broadway changed their strategy, opting for long balls to challenge City’s defence. However, Rose and Jenna were steadfast at the back, effectively handling the physical presence of Broadway's capable centre forward, who had been a significant threat in their previous encounter. Becca too, was called into action multiple times, making several fantastic saves to maintain their lead.


City continued to create opportunities up front, with Roseann and Bella both coming close to scoring. However, in the 72nd minute, against the run of play, Broadway managed to pull one back, capitalizing on a through ball on the right side of the box and placing it into the left-hand corner of the net.


City’s response was immediate. A perfectly weighted pass from Keira found Ellie on the left side of Broadway’s box. Ellie fired a powerful shot past the keeper into the right-hand post, restoring City's two-goal advantage at 1-3 and completing her hat-trick.


Ellie sealed the victory in the 82nd minute. Winning the ball in the final third, she rounded the keeper and squeezed the ball into the left-hand post, adding a fourth goal to her tally. The game ended with a resounding 1-4 victory for City.


Ellie was voted player of the match for her determination and clinical finishing.
