2021/22 ends in defeat for the Cuckoos


A defeat on the final day for Yaxley was sealed by the concession of two goals in a minute early on. In the sixth minute, a ball over the top found Leo Brown in acres of space and he coolly chipped over Aaron Butcher to give Sutton Coldfield the lead. A minute later, it was 2-0 as Connor Peters' attempted clearance set Brown through one-on-one, and he shot low beyond Butcher to score. To make matters worse, Peters injured himself during the attempted clearance to force Yaxley into an early defensive substitution and tactical reshuffle.

Sutton Coldfield remained on top throughout the first half, the balls over the top proving a constant threat. By contrast, Yaxley's best chance of the half came on the 36th minute when Toby Salmon glanced a header wide from a corner. But apart from that, chances were hard to come by for the Cuckoos.

Yaxley made a brighter start to the second half, Matt Sparrow testing Sutton Coldfield keeper Kieran Hart early on and Florian Tsaguim coming inches away from opening his account with a header. However, any hope of a comeback was extinguished on the hour mark after a loose pass on the edge of the Sutton Coldfield box set them up for a quick counter which culminated in an easy finish for Nathan Caine. Sutton Coldfield dropped the intensity after that, but they had little to worry about as Yaxley's forays forward proved consistently unsuccessful.
