Staffordshire Under 18 boys progressed to the final of the Midland Counties federation Final after recording a 2-1 win against Humberside. The game was played at Stafford Town FC in near perfect conditions and despite having to wait due to the late arrival of Humberside, Staffordshire started very strongly.

Staffordshire's possesion game was working well and Alex Curtis caused panic in the Humberside rearguard every time he was in possession of the ball. Sam Golden was put through on goal with an exquisite pass from Liam Haycock but in trying to round the keeper he was crowded out and the chance had gone. Staffordshire continued to press and the odd flurry of activity in their own half was more than competently dealt with by a strong Staffordshire back line,

It came totally against the run of play when Humberside took the lead. Staffordshire were found wanting for the first time and poor decision making allowed Humberside to lead with a well taken goal. This knocked the confidence of the Staffordshire players and the welcome relief of the half time whistle allowed the management team an opportunity to iron out the minor gliches which had resulted in the first half deficit.

The first half of the second half was nip and tuck with both teams creating and spurning chances but Staffordshire levelled with a well worked goal finished clinically by Sam Golden. This was the fillip Staffordshire needed and substitute Louis Downes, who was having a greater influence on the game, scored the Staffordshire second goal with 8 minutes remaining.

Cue an aerial barrage from Humberside who threw the ball into the Staffordshire box at every opportunity and from every angle. Staffordshire stood strong and saw the game out winning 2-1 in a very keenly fought encounter.

    Our very own Anna King, a pupil at Wolgarston School in Penkridge, made her debut for England in an Under 15 Invitation International against the Republic of ireland at Maidstone United FC's Gallagher Stadium on Saturday. Anna started the game and was absolutely rock solid as the right full back. As an Association we can be extremely proud of Anna as she follows in the groundbreaking footsteps of Milly Elson and Holly Gibson who were the first Staffordshire girls selected to represent their country last year.

    Girls can only be selected if they play County Football but a large share of the credit has to go to the Stoke City centre of excellence who have been instrumental in the progress and development of all three girls. The sound working relationship between the two organisations is certainly paying dividends for the girls and long may it continue.

    A match report is on the ESFA website at
