Putteridge started the game very calmly, keeping possession well and passing the ball around nicely. Wenlock then turned the tide of the game with some very strong play, dominating the midfield area of the pitch as well as creating lots of half chances. Wenlock took the lead with a long throw in which wasn’t cleared, resulting in the first goal of the game. Unfortunately for Putteridge, a 2nd and 3rd goal followed from more clinical play.
Half time Wenlock 3 vs Putteridge 0
After half time, Putteridge really stepped up the intensity and tried to get some momentum in the game - this resulted in a goal to make the score 3 - 1. Putteridge tried to keep pressurising the Wenlock team but unfortunately conceded a further 2 goals.
Final Score: Wenlock 5 vs Putteridge 1. Wenlock deserved the 3 points, putting in an excellent attacking display.
This was the first loss of the season for the Putteridge team and they will be looking to bounce back this week as they take on Ferrars Junior School
