Managers Update - 19th November 2007
Another strong team performance all round with special thanks to Rob Wallace and Ben Clarke who made their debuts and also to Wayne Pulford whose second half performance gave us a taste of his future goal scoring potential. Man of the Match went to Dave Anderson who was resolute in defence.
Coventry Alliance Division 3 - Woodlands WMC Reserves 1: Brinklow 2
Report from Paul Huddlestone:-
The introduction of prolific new signing Wayne Pulford at half time was a master stroke by Coach Martin Pulford. Wayne steadied the forward line, working back into midfield when required, helping Brinkow to work the ball down the left flank through Scott Vallance. He in turn worked well with the impressive Wallace to Centre for Pulford to back heal into the path of Clarke to slot in for the best worked goal of the game. With the Brinkow defence in no danger and Dale Huddlestone only being threatened by long ball tactics a very strange penalty decision gave the surprised home side a slim lifeline which they duly converted. A scrappy end to the game saw Brinklow dig deep all over the park to preserve the lead and deservedly go top of the league.
Report from Gordon Betts:-
The home team seemed to struggle more with the blustery conditions and although they had opportunities from open play and set pieces they rarely troubled Dale Huddlestone in the Brinklow goal.
The second half gave Woodlands the benefit of the downhill slope but it was Brinklow who pressed hardest and took advantage of a drive down the left to put Ben Clarke through for his first goal in his First Team debut. A strange decision from a Woodlands corner resulted in Dale facing another penalty kick and, although his record has been magnificent this season, on this occasion he was beaten by a powerful strike. Although this gave our hosts renewed hope we took control for the remainder of the match and went home as winners and now sit on top of the table.
The 1st team thank all their local sponsors and spectators for all their help & support.
