Wulfs edged out by Worcester

TOTAL MOTION MIDLAND FOOTBALL LEAGUE PREMIER DIVISION

AFC WULFRUNIANS V WORCESTER CITY

SATURDAY 23rd MARCH 2019

 

The CKW Stadium looked immaculate for the visit of Worcester City. Earlier in the season Worcester were the victors in a close competitive encounter.

 

The game kicked off in front of a large crowd and AFC continued their recent trend of going behind early. On six minutes Jordan Harrison, the Worcester number nine, headed home after AFC keeper Ben Roberts was unable to deal with a cross.

 

Again, as in previous games AFC settled and started to get back into the game, Kyle Brady forced the Worcester keeper into two smart saves and the lively Jumaane Meggoe went close following a Chris Sterling nod on. 

  

Worcester City made several demands on the referee for fouls, but the man in black Charlie Dickens kept firm control. AFC skipper Jevons received a stern ticking off from the referee after several infringements and then Attoumani, the Worcester number eight was booked for a high boot on Kyle Brady.

 

On thirty-eight minutes AFC were back level from a penalty. A Kyle Brady shot was parried by Worcester keeper Gilder and Chris Sterling, following up, was brought down. Despite the Worcester City protests a penalty was awarded and Angelo Franco made no mistake.

 

HALF TIME: AFC WULFRUNIANS 1 WORCESTER CITY 1

 

The second half started badly for AFC as a string of fouls awarded to City led to a goal on fifty-two minutes. Following a booking for Jake Evans, a Worcester cross from the left was headed home by unmarked substitute Josh Willis.

 

Again, AFC responded well and Meggoe went close on two occasions. However, AFC fell further behind when keeper Roberts brought down James Lemon. Roberts was booked and could do nothing about the resultant penalty scored by Harrison.

 

AFC raised hopes of getting something from the game when Angelo Franco banged home his second following a Jake Webb corner.

 

As AFC chased the equaliser the game became more fractious and late on Jevons was booked following an altercation on the touch line, the AFC skipper showing his frustration at the Worcester time wasting.

 

Worcester stayed strong to the end and ended the victors of a good game that ended in handshakes, a great advert for football at this level. We now look forward to our last home game of the season against Ilkeston Town.
