On a tight pitch in wet conditions Colron came up against a good lichfield team, who are much better than their league status suggests.
A bit of a scrappy first half saw both teams have a number of chances with neither team managing to take control of the game. There then followed a succession of corners by Lichfield and it took some good defending by Lewis supported by keepers Josh and Tarran to keep us in the game. Finally we managed to break the deadlock with Jack reacting to a loose ball to give us a half time one nil lead.
Colron then raised their game in the second half with Louie, Browny and Archie taking control of the midfield and Lewis then Ryan commanding at the back. Jahrome then slotted in a second and Jack made it three nil before Lichfield pulled one back with a good header at the far post.
Man of the match was Ryan who won some great tackles in his more defensive role.
All credit to Lichfield who made us battle all the way and best of luck to them for next season. Some of the football the boys played in the second half was a joy to watch and a few neutral parents approached me at the end of make that point.
Well done boys, let's make sure we are prepared for the final this Sunday against Barton Rovers.
