Pre Season Friendly
A couple of weeks ago, one of the clubs put out a request on twitter for a pre season match on 1st July, so I retweeted and this match was set up. The side from Coventry traveled a hour from the West Midlands and are newcomers to the Midland Combination, whilst Beeston Rylands are new to the Notts Senior League.

The game kicked off and early exchanges saw Rylands on the attack but unable to force the visiting keeper in to action, as the final ball was missing. Coventrians who play their home matches within a stone throw away from the Ricoh Stadium began to find their footing and the strikers were very pacy. After 30 minutes, Coventrians took the lead when a shot was rifled in from the edge of the penalty area. On 39 minutes, just as I was stood with the Coventrians Secretary, her son rifled in a shot from the right wing to double the lead.

The Second Half saw quite a few subs made and Beeston never really got in to their rhythm, giving the opponents a lot space and time on the ball and gaps were appearing, the home keeper was called in to action a few times and the away team who have been training with a Wasp;s Ruby coach, their extra fitness was beginning to tell. On 86 minutes, the number 7 made it 3-0 and in the final minute, Coventrians wrapped up a good performance by making it 4.

Always difficult to tell on friendlies but I feel the Coventry based side will do well in the Midland Combination League. The club do badges and also both clubs do have twitter sites which are kept right up to date, which is always pleasing to see.

First time Ive seen Michael Evans ref and thought he had a decent game.
