1st Team Match Report v Leamington

Stafford HC 1st team, wrapped up this years campaign with a professional 2-0 victory away at Leamington Spa HC.  The opposition stunned Stafford in the first fixture winning 4-2, so the Riverway team knew they would have to take the game seriously.

 

Stafford started well with good work on either flank from Charlie Trotter and Andy Peatfield, possession soon turned into penalty corners, Ben Hollands opening the scoring after Trotter laid the ball into his path after a switched move.  Soon afterwards, Stafford doubled their lead when Richard Bendall was upended in the circle and a penalty stroke was awarded, Ben Cantrill on his return from injury duly slotted home.

 

After this Stafford played possession hockey, the defensive trio of Gareth Minton, Simon Parnell and Giles Rowden, switching the ball to deflate a visibly tiring Leamington.  In the second half, the opposition came into the game more with man of the match Richard Buka called upon in goals to make a number of crucial saves.  Ironically enough Buka is normally an outfield player only playing in goals due to illness to Brad Evans!

 

Stafford continued to create chances but could not extend their lead further.  In an up and down season, Stafford came 5th in the league, with a number of positive elements including the emergence of a real talent in Charlie Trotter and in having the league top goal scorer in Randall Moore, things are looking good for the Club and team.

1st Team Match Report v Ludlow

Stafford HC 1st team were left disappointed last weekend after losing 3-1 at home to Ludlow HC.  In an up and down game, Stafford played some lovely hockey but were unable to put their chances away.

 

In poor conditions Stafford took an early lead after the energetic Charlie Trotter won a penalty corner, Randall Moore scored with a low drag flick.  Unfortunately Stafford could not keep the lead for long as a defensive lapse saw a Ludlow forward left in space, he was able to turn and play the ball to an unmarked player at the far post to score.  Soon afterwards Ludlow scored again, Brad Evans beaten at his near post by a straight shot.

 

Stafford continued to attack, and great work by debutant Jack Ball saw him hit the post and just miss out with another chance at the far post.  Stafford won a number of other corners but could not get the injection right, when they did have a chance, the Ludlow goal keeper was able to smother the shot.

 

Ludlow then got the final goal as a midfielder made his way into the circle after a couple of stick obstructions before putting the ball under an advancing Evans.

 

A disappointing result, which sums up Stafford’s season, great play at times without due reward and some defensive errors.  Stafford’s last game next week is away against Leamington Spa.

1st Team Match Report v Tamworth

Honours were shared last weekend in the Staffordshire hockey derby between Stafford and Tamworth  as they saw out a 2-2 draw.

 

Stafford were the more disappointed team having been 2-0 ahead.  In a contrast to the previous week, Stafford started well causing the Tamworth defence problems, Charlie Trotter was giving his marker a torrid time at left midfield.  Eventually Stafford took the lead when a lovely pass from Andy Peatfield found Trotter ghosting past his player to deflect the ball past a stationary keeper.

 

Stafford then doubled their advantage after a Randall Moore shot from a penalty corner was saved well by the keeper, however James Gillingham was on hand to bundle the rebound home.  Stafford’s normally reliable penalty corner routine was not firing on all cylinders as they failed to extend their lead despite a number of chances.

 

After the break it was more of the same, Stafford unable to extend their lead, the best chance when Moore’s shot came off the post.  Then nerves seemed to set in as the Stafford defence sat back and allowed Tamworth to press forwards, pressure told and Stafford conceded two penalty corners, the first was put in with a direct shot at Brad Evans near post, the second a flick into the corner of the goal.

 

A disappointed Stafford, guilty again of failing to put the result beyond doubt.  Next week they have a blank fixture before a home game against Ludlow HC.

Stafford 2nds win the league with a game to go!!!

After results went our way yesterday, Stafford made it 6 points out of 6 for the weekend, and an unassailable 4 point lead at the top of the table with 1 game to go.

Still 1 game left and we will look to end on a high with a win against Wolverhampton. If you have no plans and are free at 1pm, we would really welcome your support 🙂

Thanks
