Lions bring league season to a close....

Heather played their last league fixture against Solihull FC in a hard fought contest.

With ground conditions not great both teams really struggled to get the ball down and play. Heather had the better of possession in the first half without really creating any clear cut chances, solihull looked to break away from deep or rely on the long ball into the heather box from throw ins. With play not the best the first half finished 0-0.

The second half again started in similar style with both teams not stringing many passes together and goalmouth scrambles from set pieces. This seemed to be where the break through was always going to be and so it was. Solihull had a free kick that was put into the area and their forward reacted the quickest to glance an header to give them a late lead. Heather continued to push forward and two corners produced a good save from the keeper and then a final match winning goal line clearance that was going into the top corner in the last minute of normal time. A draw was deserved for the lads but unfortunately it was not to be and saw the boys slip to only their 2nd defeat of the season which is a great achievement.

So with the league season now over, that see's the team finish top of the table and having played some entertaining football will see the boys round off their under 15 campaign with a cup final on saturday 6th against AFC Birmingham.
