Worcester City U16s Beat Rivals 3-0

Great Advert for the JPL

Worcester City welcomed their neighbours Evesham Utd to a beautiful Claines Lane... sun was shining, pitch perfect, with a slight zip. Visitors arrived early and got familiar with the pitch while the hosts turned up in 2's and 3's to see the strength and conditioning coach after a very difficult weeks training and a midweek game with the u18's. Not the perfect start for Worcester today as 3 of their starters couldn't figure at all and another 5 nursing knocks and heavy fatigue. S&C coach earned his money today. Lol. Worcester City boys were told a couple weeks ago that when you get an opportunity to start, you have to take advantage. Keep the regular players on their toes and today they certainly did that. Game kicked off and Worcester completely dominated possession in the first 2 quarters. Created so many chances. Evesham had a great game plan and sat deep and compact looking to hit on the break. It was nice to see however that Evesham did try to play from the back and did try to play to feet. It just wasn't falling for them today. Worcester set up with a medium pressure block looking to trap certain zones of the pitch then exploit positions in both wide and central areas. It's always difficult playing with a false 9 and inverted wingers to penetrate the box but because of multiple rotations Worcester did do again and again. As I stated before, if it wasn't for an excellent game plan and a fantastic defensive performance from the visiting team it could of been double figures today. Worcester left it late to make it 2-0 then 3-0 in the final quarter but I do believe and I do hope that both sets of fans saw a very good game of football that showed off great passing and rotational movements as well as a good solid shape with defensive strength and quality. A good advert for the JPL I think today but the day well and truly belonged to football. #possession #popit #punchit #playit #playtherightway
