Midland Youth League 2018
Warley 9 v 16 Boldmere
Warley started their campaign with a home game against Boldmere. With so many players playing their first game in this league and no training for the past two Mondays it was not surprising that our players looked a little lost at times. In fact only Lorcan, Jacen and Priya played last season. The first quarter was dominated by the away team scoring 5 goals without reply from the home team. However, as the game progressed Warley started to score goals and the difference between the two teams became less apparent. Scores for the remaining quarters were 2nd : 3 v 4, 3rd: 1 v 6 and the final quarter: 5 v 1.
Warley players and scorers in brackets: Joe Parkes (debut G/K), , Lorcan Halstead (4 goals), Jacen Wilkes (2 goals), Priya Kennedy, Kealan Cheadle ( 2 goals), Matthew Jones, Luka Murphy, Daniel Painter, Anil Sivakumar and Aaryan Tyagi 1 goal).
