Living Hope Church United 8-1 St. Thomas Aldridge
This morning saw the meeting of last season’s third and fourth placed teams at LHC’s new home, St. Michael’s High.
The first-half saw the hosts enjoy much of the possession, with the opposition only having a couple of chances. Despite this, LHC could only find the net once before the break, when a whipped in Ashley Turner corner was volleyed home by Shane Parker.
The second-half continued in much the same fashion. However, this time around LHC were able to capitalise upon their patient build-up play. A flurry of goals from Turner (3), Webb, Oakshott, Langford, and Parker again ensured the hosts came away with all three points on the opening day of the WMCFL season. Man of the Match was debut boy Ashley Turner with three goals and five assists.
Next week, LHC travel away to face Excel Church (last season’s Wolverhampton Churches United).
