Match Report
South Bromsgrove High School Boys-U16A vs  Codsall Community High School
On: Thursday, 03 Oct 2019
Venue: Away

Travelled to Codsall for our 1st Round ESFA tie. After a bright start and creating some half-chances, Codsall took the lead when a fortunate top-poke past Schofield in goal, hit the post and crept over the line. Unfortunately, 3 goals on the break and a lack of tracking players led to a Codsall 4-0 lead.

We soon replied with a penalty after Bennett was 'brought down' in the box. Carter stepped forward and confidently put the ball in the back of the net. Within minutes Codsall had a penalty of their own after Schofield 'upended' their striker in the area. Schofield made up for the error with a fine diving save to his right to keep it 4-1.

The 2nd half was the all one way to South. Despite Patterson hitting the bar for a 2nd time and then volleying over from close-range and also Newby-Moore heading over from yards out, we were unable to narrow the gap in the score. A good performance that shows that possession and chances need end results.
