The Under 14 Boys game which should have been played tomorrow, 1st of FEB has been postponed because opponents Shropshire are involved in a National Cup Quarter Final tie. No date has been set for the game.

The Under 16 Boys game against Shropshire on the 8th of February has also had to be postponed as Staffordshire Under 16 Girls will be taking on South Yorkshire in the Quarter Final of the national competition.

That game will take place at Stafford Town FC with a 7-00pm KO . Admission will be £3 for adults and £1 for concessions. The girls are our last hope in the national competition so as much support as possible would give the girls a big lift.

2 Staffordshire players have been rewarded for their efforts by being selected to play for England School's during the forthcoming International programme. Megan Hunt from Haywood Academy in Stoke and Joe Hartshorne from Staffordshire University Academy in Cannock are the players and the good news is that they are both young enough to be selected again next season.

Megan continues the tradition of Staffordshire having a player in the girls squad every year since its inception which is a great testament to Staffordshire County SFA and their support of girls football which did not exist in the County six years ago.

More details and pictures to follow.

The Under 15 Boys played Shropshire at Stafford Town FC on Monday in an MCF league fixture. The manager Bailey Evans match report is below.

Staffordshire's U15 boys managed to continue their strong run of form with a well-deserved 4-2 win over Shropshire in their MCF game last night.

The game was a lively one, with both sides combining a fast, technical style with some very physical and athletic performances in the middle.
Staffs broke the deadlock, with the first of many stunning Davy Watts' dead balls finding the threatening Kyle Johnson in the box to head home. Unfortunately for Staffs, Shropshire equalised in a similar vein - with a dangerous delivery headed home.
It temporarily went from bad to worse for Staffs, with a fizzing ball across the box turned into the Staffs goal by centre-back Owen Hall - who in all fairness could not have done anything about it. He soon made amends however, by equalising at the other end with a well-placed header just before the break.
The half-time team talk consisted of the coaches asking for more of the same, perhaps with a few more tests for the Shropshire keeper. After a shaky opening 15 minutes for both sides, Alfie Mallen answered the request in literal and spectacular style; thumping a long range curling effort over the helpless keeper from 25 yards (his second such goal in two games). The game was capped off in style by the lively Owen Nolan, who picked up the ball 25 yards from goal, dribbled past four players and the keeper before coolly slotting home.
Another terrific game of football, with two very entertaining teams. Man of the match award goes to the exceptional Max Cuthbert - who played so well in an unfamiliar sweeper position that he may well have earned a permanent move! Special mentions also go to Kyle Johnson for constant, effective and threatening attacking movement, and Luke Campbell for another full-blooded midfield display.

Last night the Under 16 girls pulverised Shropshire in a must win game. Staffordshire needing to win by three clear goals begam with real purpose and took the lead when a clinical finish from Harriet Wellings left the Shropshire goalkeeper helpless. They doubled their lead five minutes later when a good strike from Shev Watson was spilled by the keeper and Shania Hales poked the ball home from close range. This was just the start that Staffordshire needed and an excellent first half was rounded off with a third goal from an ever alert Shev Watson who cleverley finished an excellent Staffordshire move.

Centre Backs Molly Bruton and Alex Buck snuffed out ant potential Shropshire threat and keeper Tiff Whelan was only in action to deal with back passes from her own defenders.

Shropshire were far more resolute in the second half and began to ask Staffordshire some questions and they should have scored when the Staffs back four was caught square but the centre forward rolled the ball wide. Skipper Anna King drove her team on with a commanding display from midfield and her and Phoebe Warner, given freedom by Charlotte Jarvis's holding midfield role, caused the Shropshire midfield some serious problems. It was Phoebe who gave the team some breathing space with a brillianly struck half volley from the edge of the area after some excellent approach work from Hannah Hampton. Hannah then claimed a goal for herself and Shania Hales headed home for Staffordshire's sixth.

This was an excellent performance from the whole squad and they can take great heart for the rest of the season

The Under 14 Boys lost their ESFA game against Lancashire heavily at Wren Rovers FC on Tuesday night.

They started very slowly and were never able to recover from the slow start against a very strong Lancashire outfit boasting 15 academy players in their squad of 17. Three goals down, two of them self inflicted, gave them a mountain to climb and despite a spirited recovery were unable to make any impression on Lancashire and had to be content with a solitary consolation goal from Tommy O'Hara in their 6-1 defeat.

Having won their opening games relatively easily the management team will be considering their options before the forthcoming Midland Counties game against Shropshire.
