Redditch Borough 0-1 Sutton Coldfield Town Royals

Royals make perfect start at tough opponents

The Royals got their league campaign off to a winning start with a hard fought victory and well-earned clean-sheet

Playing down the hill in the first-half, Sutton dominated territory and possession whilst restricting Redditch to occasional raids into the Sutton half

After a succession of half-chances The Royals made the breakthrough towards the end of the first half when Warhurst, on her debut, reacted quickest in a crowded box to hit the ball into the corner of the net

The second-half saw play swing both ways with Sutton working their way up the slope and against the breeze, while Redditch used the elements to keep Sutton pegged back

Both teams had chances to score but the Sutton held firm with Creswell in the Sutton goal only troubled by shots from distance

Notable performances from 16-year-old debutant Rachel Akinyemi and Georgia Whitehouse solid especially in the second-half

Player-of-the-Match was Hamid who worked tirelessly throughout

The FA Respect: We Only Do Positive
