FA Vase 2nd Qualifying Round

Heath Hayes 0 Wolverhampton Sporting Community 3

Wolverhampton Sporting Community have started the West Midlands Regional League season on fire winning all 7 games with a +29 goal difference. Heath Hayes have had mixed results in Division 1 of the MFL with goals at both ends of the pitch the order of the day. With a place in the 1st round proper of the FA Vase the prize for the victors, an open game was expected. It was the visitors that started the brightest with Tom Hill testing Mark Wiggins in the first minute after Jon Ledford had crossed from the goalline. In the 3rd minute, Wiggins had to race off his line to hack the ball away from Ledford. Dimitri Dunkley got beyond the Heath Hayes defence but Wiggins made the save. In the 5th minute, Dunkley miss hit a cross which deceived Wiggins and hit the crossbar. It was all Sporting and Mitch Clarke was off target, volleying over the vr from a free-kick. Heath Hayes’ first chance fell to Regan Smith who raced through on goal but Jamie Gettings made the stop. In the 15th minute, the pressure told as Sporting took a deserved lead. Dunkley picked up the ball on the left and sent a low shot across Wiggins and into the far corner. Mitch Teece had a chance for the home side but his shot was straight at Gettings. Letford again found space on the right and his cross was just behind the waiting Dunkley. On the half hour mark, Smith dragged a shot wide. Sporting made it 2-0 in the 39th minute. AN excellent rhough ball from Ashley Evans was perfectly into the path of Dunkley and he slid the ball past the advancing Wiggins. Hill somehow managed to send a shot over the trees before Sporting made it three on the stroke of half-time. Letford again was prominent. Reaching the byeline and playing the ball inside to Hill who made no mistake.

The second half began with Sporting having the majority of the play without looking like extending their lead. A foul challenge by Angelo Franco in the 57th minute saw a melée ensue with Franco fortunate to only receive a yellow card. The visitors began to push for more goals and Dunkley should have had a hat-trick with Wiggins saving with his legs. In the 74th minute, Hill came close to scoring his second when his shot took the faintest deflection over the bar. Clarke volleyed over again for Sporting before Heath Hayes substitute Ben Cooling forced the Sporting defence to block his close range effort. Alex Scott made a fine defensive clearance for Heath Hayes, clearing a flicked heade off the line. In the 83rd minute, Dunkley was again one-on-one with the keeper, toe poking the ball past Wiggins but not getting enough on it allowing the defence to clear. Chris Horton had a rare chance for Heath Hayes but headed wide of the target. In the 85th minute, Dunkley was again foiled by Wiggins and moments later Keiron Northwood hit the side netting when well placed. Wes Gray, on as substitute for Sporting had an effort blocked by Connor Haddaway and in the last minute Hill headed over.

A comfortable win for a very impressive Wolves Sporting and it is easy to see why they have made such a good start to the season.

Sporting Khalsa 5 Boldmere St Michaels 0

A final game under floodlights at the Aspray Arena before workmen move in to install a new 4G pitch. Khalsa had a chance inside 25 seconds when a mistake by Lewis Fenney almost gifted a chance to Craig Bannister. David Meese had an effort which cleared the bar in the 2nd minute. A low cross from Bannister was cleared from the feet of Kyle Brady as Khalsa dominated. In the 12th minute, a quick break from Boldmere saw the ball played into the path of Ryan Nesbitt but his shot took a deflection for a corner. Khalsa should have taken the lead in the 14th minute when Brady was through on goal however Fenney made a fine save. Two minutes later, Bannister’s goalbound effort cannoned off Meese and away to safety. A poor clearance from Khalsa keeper Sam Arnold found Nicky Dodd, who tried his luck from 40 yards but he was way off target. Khalsa took the lead in the 23rd minute. A left wing cross from Jonny Haynes was half cleared as far as Mike Perks on the edge of the area. Perks picked his spot and the ball flew past Fenney. The home side doubled the lead on the half hour mark. A free-kick from Bannister was met with a firm header by Meese and the ball cannoned off the bar. Shawn Boothe reacted quickest to head the rebound into the empty net. Boldmere had a half chance in the 38th minute, Jack Skinner firing wide from Cameron Gayle’s cross. In stoppage time, a foul by Carlo Franco on Dodd gave Boldmere a free-kick on the edge of the area. Nesbitt stepped up but cleared the bar with his attempt.

Khalsa continued to dominate after the break with a cross from Brady clipping the crossbar. In the 52nd minute, Mensah Kinch had a chance for Khalsa but volleyed wide of the target. An excellent cross from Bannister was palmed away by Fenney with Tesfa Robinson ready to pounce. In the 61st minute, Fenney raced off his line to take the ball away from Bannister. Boldmere came close to clawing a goal back when Skinner fired across goal after creating space. This was a brief respite as Bannister and Meese combined to set up Marvin Nisbett and his first time effort was well saved by Fenney. A quick break from the home side gave Nisbett another opportunity but his shot was too near Fenney. Brady was next to try his luck, his shot on the turn well held by Fenney. Khalsa substitute Rikardo Reid was introduced in the 79th minute and with his first touch, he curled a shot narrowly wide. Boldmere were stlll in it, and after beating a defender, Ryan Shaw hit a shot straight at Arnold when brilliantly placed. In the 83rd minute, Khalsa scored number three. A ball into the box was half cleared by the Mikes, it was picked up Perks and his superb shot flew in off the far post. Two minutes later it was 4. A cross from Franco picked out Meese who beat his defender with an unbelievable piece of skill, controlling and turning the defender in one move before volleying past Fenney with his second touch. Into stoppage time, Khalsa ut the gloss on the performance with a 5th goal. Reid’s cross from the right wing picked out Brady, who made no mistake with another quality finish.

Four goals of the highest quality and an excellent performance from Khalsa who appear to be getting into their stride.

Two high scoring sides meet at The Victoria Ground with 3rd placed Worcester City hosting 6th placed Shepshed Dynamo. Two defeats on the spin have slowed Coventry United’s and they welcome AFC Wulfrunians to the Butts Park Arena, Wulfs winning the reverse fixture 1-0. Westfields are already 6 games behind some of their rivals and they are back in league action at the Spray Arena against Sporting Khalsa, who moved up to 7th after their midweek win over Boldmere St Michaels. Two sides in the bottom 5 meet at Grange Park with Long Eaton United hosting bottom club Shawbury United. Quorn are one place off the bottom and they welcome mid table Stourport Swifts to Farley Way. Rugby Town are unbeaten in 7 games in all competitions and they travel to the Trevor Brown Memorial Ground to face Boldmere St Michaels. Haughmond have made an impact in FA competitions this season but they will want to start climbing the MFL table with a win at home to Loughborough University who have won 1 in 9. Coventry Sphinx have made an excellent start to the season and they travel to The Coppice to face improving Highgate United. Rocester welcome Lye Town to Hillsfield with both sides on a run of poor results.

Division 1

Plenty of games to choose from in Division 1 this weekend. Leaders Studley welcome in-form Heather St johns to The Beehive.

Hinckley AFC have picked up one point in their last two league games and they will want to get back to winning ways against visitors Brocton who have had success in the FA Vase but have struggled for results in the league. There is a good looking game at Sheepy Road where 4th placed Atherstone Town welcome Paget Rangers. Lichfield City can move into the top 4 if they can pick up three points at bottom club Cadbury Athletic and other results go their way. There is a promise of goals at Rene Road where 14th placed Bolehall Swifts meet 13th placed Heath Hayes. Stafford Town travel to 5 Acres to face Littleton where a win for the home side would see them close the 6 spaces between the two sides. 16th meets 18th at Oldfields with Uttoxeter Town hosting Pershore Town

Division 2

Leaders NKF Burbage host 11th placed Barnt Green Spartak with the chance to extend their lead at the top of the table. 3rd placed Hampton will go second with a win away to basement side Pelsall Villa. 4th placed Knowle can go level on points with Montpellier if they can win at Earlswood Town. Northfield Town can also join the group of clubs near the top of the table if they can win at 8th placed Feckenham. Out of form Redditch Borough welcome in-form Smithswood Firs to the MSS hoping to upset the form book. 14th meets 13th at Tally Ho with Moors Academy welcoming Bloxwich Town who were boosted with a win over Redditch Borough last week.

Division 3

With the top two in cup action, Bartestree can move up to 2nd if they get anything out of their home game with 15th placed Leamington Hibernian.
