Merseyside v Staffs Police
Staffs Police 2 v West Mercia 0 Match Report Magnum Shield
A good performance by all concerned gave Staffs a vital first win in the Magnum Shield to improve their chances of progressing past the group stages. Back to his best was GB Police international Andy PARKINSON with a goal in each half the second being the pick of the bunch. Winning the ball in the centre circle, Andy then rode a couple of robust challenges himself before surging forward and slotting the ball home. A clean sheet, a good team performance where every player was on top of his game and had the beating against his opposite number. Credit to Mercia for being tough to break down but quality shone through and towards the end the margin of victory could have been more.
