Staffordshire 1 – 1 Shropshire

                                (Bonas, 78)

The under 15 boys’ side got their competitive schedule underway on Monday evening, travelling to Stafford Town FC to face Staffordshire. Shropshire started brightly and were unlucky not to take the lead inside the first minute when Riley Burnett fired just wide from inside the penalty area. The first half was particularly tight with good build up play from both sides; the right wing carrying the stronger threat from both the home and away teams.

A mistake in transition from Shropshire saw Staffordshire’s first clear cut chance; the forward slotting home underneath Rome Jones but seeing the lineman’s flag go up immediately after. Shots from Trey Campbell and Ben Smith saw smart saves from the Staffs keeper, with Shropshire forwards failing to latch onto the rebounds.

Fine saves from both keepers shortly before half time kept the game goalless; Rome Jones superbly tipping over in the away goal and Briar Bateman seeing a low drive pushed wide.

Staffordshire were quicker out the blocks in the early throws of the second half but failed to capitalise on numerous set pieces. Shropshire settled soon after and dominated the majority of the possession but failed to create major, clear cut chances on goal. Great work from full back Alfie Bonas saw him breeze past two defenders before picking out Trey Campbell who could only find the underside of the crossbar from close range.

Staffordshire broke the deadlock with 7 minutes to play; their central midfielder skipped past two challenges before sliding in the forward who fired home low past Jones. Shropshire reacted well and put pressure on the home goal with numerous set pieces in the late stages. The equaliser came with 2 minutes to go when a tired home clearance landed with Shropshire man of the match Alfie Bonas, who produced a fine strike from the angle of the area into the far top corner.

The final scoreline of 1-1 fairly reflected the game and performances put in from both sets of players.
