Under-strength side put up a good fight
6:00am Saturday 14th December 2013 in Sportsview
WYRE Forest Phoenix produced a hard-working display but experienced a 4-0 defeat at Coventry Development in the West Midlands Regional Women's League.
The Ladies team had to travel to a difficult fixture with just 10 players due to injuries and illness and although they gave 110 per cent it was not enough on the day to stop the experienced home side.
Player of the match and Captain of the team Kat Meredith was inspirational in rallying her team when their heads went down and Kirsty Roberts drew a fine save in the first half.
Keepers Vicky Hyde and Tracy Evans swapped the number one shirt at half-time to allow some fresh energy into the field.
