U12s Match report: Stonnall Juniors 3 – 3 Brownhills Community Colts

Stonnall Juniors 3 goals from Sedgy, Charlie, DJ
Brownhills Community Colts 3

MOTM awarded to DJ – well done DJ great work when you came and a great finish to get on the score sheet.
Firstly I would like to give credit to the referee who was absolutely tremendous. He managed the game superbly (and some parents) he spoke to the players throughout the game – even speaking to them by name, this was a true spectacle of what’s required from a referee. Maybe the wjyl need to use this ref as mentor for others!
This was a game of events. Each of which are part of learning.

From going a goal down we showed great character and got the equaliser from Sedgy, from then on we dominated the game and went 2-1 up with another wonder strike from Charlie. With credit to Brownhills they didn’t give up against the run of play and equalised 2-2.

Again we ventured in front with neat cross from Benno for little DJ to come flying in with a cracking volley 3-2.
Again we dominated and came close on a number of chances, with a few minutes to go Brownhills won a free kick just outside of our box – great free kick fell under the bar 3-3.

This was a great game of football and with respect to the young Brownhills lads they battled well and all shook hands in the middle afterwards. One vocal parent thought it fair to shout that Stonnall had dropped two point’s – RESPECT and CODE OF CONDUCT comes to mind!! Few things to discuss at training on Saturday lads but well done to you all.

Stonnall parents please note; Although Gaynor kindly carries out the paperwork duties for each and every game she does not pick the team, or have any say in it whatsoever, nor do any parents. If anyone has any issues with the selection made or the pitch time of any individuals please speak to me not question Gaynor.

FOR FUTURE GAMES CAN ALL SUBSTITUTES PLEASE STAND BEHIND THE RESPECT BARRIER WITH CLUB JACKET ON AND VIEW THE GAME, NOT SPEND TIME OUT OF SITE KICKING FOOTBALLS AROUND. Over the last several weeks we have lost or had stolen from games 5 footballs. Lads please put your footballs in your bags for safe keeping.

Thanks for continued support its greatly appreciated.

See you Saturday 10am

Staffs FA evening — Linesman’s course

Many thanks to Staffs FA and to Mike Mooney for kindly delivering the recent Club Linesman’s course to coaches, parents and players from the Stonnall Juniors teams.

Staffs FA and Stonnall Juniors FC

Club Chairman, Neil Richards said, “Thankyou to Staffs FA for kindly giving Stonnall Juniors FC this opportunity to talk with an official away from the pressure (and abuse) they sometimes face at pitchside. It’s part of our club ethos to acknowledge who controls our game and for those around that person to have respect and understanding, bolstered through the FA’s Respect campaign. Thanks also to Walsall Phoenix for the use of their club house. It is a great when two local clubs can work together to put forward what is important: the best for all our players.
