Community Moors round-up
*A round-up from the club's thriving community department - by Ant Hasker*
PUBLISHED: 9th Mar 17

The schools coaching is running smoothly with one week into the new term. The Oaks School is a new addition to the program, with two football after school clubs, one breakfast club and one fitness club starting in two weeks time.

St Patrick's School had an inter schools tournament on Monday evening where they only played one game in the end but won that 2-1, against St Katherine Levison School, which saw them finish 2nd in the league, with a possible semi-final/final to come soon.

The first year academy students had their meeting on Tuesday evening this week to be given all the information for next year and it went really well. It was very informative and a very exciting time for the club moving forward. The letters and extra trial dates for next year'ss academy will be going out the beginning of next week.

Last Saturday, the academy section went with no losses at all, with four wins annd a draw. The U19s travelled up to Derby College during the week to continue the winning streak facing Derby County CDT.  On less than the best surface, The Moors took 25 minutes to break the deadlock, then ended up running away with the game 0:7. Goals from Blessing Nhundu (2), Owen Siatorious,, Kyle Batchelor, Will Taylor, Jonathan Ojjih, and James Medford sealed the win, but moment of the match went to Nathan Hansard, who expertly nutmegged an opponent in the centre of the park to the adulation of his fellow team mates & coaches……
Social Inclusion:

All three of our social inclusion venues; John Henry Newman, Tudor Grange and Smithswood, are bustling with the ages varying form 13-19 year olds and are looking to grow in numbers each week. Headed up by Arthur Dawes, this section is absolutely superb, offering free football to local teenagers three times a week. The numbers are on the rise every week and two venues are up to over 40 players, which is just a fantastic achievement.
Ability Counts: 

The ability counts section is growing in numbers too every week. This week saw a massive rise with over 40 attending for the Saturday session. This is such a lovely bunch to work with and they are just growing in confidence every week. Entering the FA People's Cup (and succeeding too!) was a real experience and great opportunity for the talented bunch we have.
Youth & Juniors:

Massive wash out this weekend for the teams in the competitive section! No Competitive games went ahead for the Sunday section at all, the only games that escaped the weather were played at our new Home venue of John Henry Newman College on the superb 4G surface.

The U13s 1 team narrowly defeated Burntwood Dragons 2:1. 

U15s MJPL team cruised to victory beating rivals Redditch United 7:3. 

U15s JPL team shared the spoils with Coventry City drawing 2:2. 

U16s JPL team continued their impressive season beating Sandiacre convincingly 8:1.

Game of the Weekend went to the U13s Girls though, who narrowly beat Counden Court. Having lost 5:6 last time around, turned the tables winning by the same scoreline this time 5:6 again!  5 goals from the superb Emily Davies, and backed up by strike partner Morgan Reeves adding to the scoreline, were 5:6 up with a minute to go, then conceding the latest of penalties.  The Counden Court player blazed over the bar though, so Moors took away all 3 points.  Star Player went to Captain Fantastic Leah Bryan, for another fantastic performance.
