Phoenix will be back to full strength in the league when they take on Redditch at home on Sunday.
The under-9s Raiders played their first competitive league match and lost 4-0 to their clubmates from Wyre Forest Phoenix with Jasmin Whitmore bagging a hat-trick and Olivia Wood scored the other.

The under-14s Raiders were out gunned 8-3, with Caelen Gower, Chloe Whyley and Katie Griffiths hitting the back of the net.
Wyre Forest’s under-16s team took their first steps in the open age group section in the Hereford and Worcester Girls and Women’s County League with a 5-4 win over Cookley Ladies.
Phoenix had powered into a 4-1 lead at half-time and then went 5-2 ahead but Cookley staged a stirring fight back.
