Wulfs great win on the road

 
MIDLAND FOOTBALL LEAGUE PREMIER DIVISION
BOLDMERE ST MICHAELS V AFC WULFRUNIANS
SATURDAY 7TH DECEMBER 2019
 
AFC Wulfrunians travelled to Sutton Coldfield to play Boldmere St Michaels with both teams sitting mid table and both on a run of good form.
 
Boldmere play on a 4G surface which has not been a surface that has suited AFC so far this season, losing at Coventry United and Romulus, and so it could prove to be a difficult afternoon for the Wolverhampton side.
 
The game kicked off in bright sunshine in front of a healthy partisan crowd and it was Boldmere who had the first clear opportunity with Tom Massey striking the outside of the post from long range.
 
The game immediately switched to the other end and a well worked move saw a cross from James Hill turned into the Boldmere net from close range by Aaron Bishop.
 
Boldmere responded well to going behind and another long-range effort, this time from Ahenkorah, was well saved by the AFC keeper Dan Whitehouse.
 
The game continued to be end to end and AFC doubled their lead with Khenan Barrett neatly slotting home a through ball, ten minutes gone and AFC two up.
 
AFC continued to look confident and in control and midfielder Simon Williams tried his luck from long range, spotting the Boldmere keeper off his line, the effort sailed over the bar, and at the other end the dangerous Ahenkorah had an effort well saved by the AFC keeper.
 
The latter part of the half settled into a game dominated by the midfields but near to the forty-five-minute mark Wulfrunians conceded a foul on the edge of their box and Owen Perry scored direct from the free kick.
 
HALF TIME: Boldmere St MIchaels 1 AFC Wulfrunians 2
 
The first fifteen minutes of the second half was dominated by the home side as they pressed for an equaliser, but AFC maintained their shape and concentration and Boldmere were unable to create any clear-cut opportunities.
 
AFC always posed a threat and Dominic Dell went close to making it three following a James Hill free kick.
 
Jumaane Meggoe came on as a substitute for the visitors and immediately carried the ball from his own box to bring a good save out of the Boldmere keeper.
 
The home side never gave up but it was AFC who finished the stronger and for the last ten minutes the game was played in and around the Bolmere penalty area and they managed the game well to a winning conclusion.
 
AFC have now won four games on the trot, finally won this season on 4G and sit ten points behind the league leaders with a game in hand.
 
FINAL SCORE: Boldmere St MIchaels 1 AFC Wulfrunians 2
