Worcester City Women Matchday Round Up 24/05/23

Coundon Court 1-4 WCWFC

High-scoring City back on track with a convincing win over Coundon Court.

The sun shone through on this Wednesday evening fixture.

City had an early lead through Rogers, Mitcham had rattled the bar just before, Holly was on hand and kept her cool to beat the defender to the ball and slot home. A great start.

Coundon almost had a reply just a few minutes later, a low shot was saved well by Hine who just got her fingertips to the ball to push wide.

Worcester dominated possession after the opening 15’ minutes, using the width well, with some lovely long cross-field passes.

City wasn’t holding back. This time Marrett’s effort was spilled by the keeper and rolled into the corner of the goal. A commanding start from City.

Following from dominating in possession there was another goal, this time Baldwin, who hit a long ranged effort that was always destined to hit the back of the net.

Just before the halftime whistle, the game came to life with two quick goals, Marrett got her second followed by a first for the home side whose response was instant.

City continued throughout the second half which saw little action, they kept possession well and focused on moving into space.

Matt said: “I think it was needed after [last] weekend and not only a good performance but we moved the ball incredibly well. It was a joy to watch.

We have an incredibly strong squad, even though we rotated a little we had a great 11, they did what I expected them to.”

Chances were few and far between moving into the last 30’, Marrett had a chance to make it three for the evening but her effort found only the side netting.

Mitcham was next up to try and add to the scoreline with a powerful, driven shot right down the throat of the keeper.

The home side didn’t sit back though and tested Hine who produced, her now trademark reaction save.

Captain Fassnidge tried to herself in the scoresheet a looping effort worried the keeper but drifted slightly over the bar.

City's season will come to an end on Sunday when they take on Kidderminster Harriers away from home in a 2pm KO. City have already secured 4th spot but a win at the weekend would see them end the season on 41 points.

Yesterday the Development team fell to a 1-4 defeat at home to Sedgley & Gornal United and will also be ending their season on Sunday when they host Knowle at Claines Lane in a 2:30 KO.
