Match Preview: Macclesfield FC U19 B vs Coventry City U19

After an excellent few weeks for the Macclesfield FC U19 B team, they turn their attention to Coventry who play their football in the CEFL Central 1 league.

Macclesfield B will be hosting the Central 1 side, Coventry, at Egerton, after two really pleasing and promising results against a Wolverhampton Wanderers A side, and Burton side in the CEFL Cup.

The Silkmen B side goes into the game having scored 10 goals in their last three games and only conceding the one goal when they lost to Derby County B. The B side will be looking to keep up the high scoring, as well as keeping another clean sheet.

Jermaine Birch has shown his class in the last few games, bagging a well-deserved hat-trick against Burton. Ollie Jones has also had a good run of games, recording an assist from a lovely looping cross to Jermaine Birch against Burton; and bagging a brace against the Wolves Aside.

Coventry hasn’t had as much luck in their recent games, bottom of Central 1 league they are yet to record a win so far this year in their league. They are also sitting with a goal difference of -38, which they will inevitably be looking to improve. It will be interesting how the B side will cope with the team from the league above and might be a small insight of how the team could fare in Central League 1; with the likes of Macclesfield FC U19 A.

The Midlands outfit offers an advanced coaching experience and commit ‘To provide high-quality coaching and a positive coaching environment to support players in reaching their potential’. We achieve this by providing a positive learning environment that focusses on each individual player, rather than team results.’

The SBITC programme is also a registered charity, and a non-profitable organisation ensuring all the money made is invested in the centre’s running costs and the coaching of their players.

Macclesfield A had massive success when they travelled to Coventry, beating the sky blues 13-0 in the league. The B team will be looking to continue the success that the Silkmen have experienced against the midlands side.

Danny Whiting had nothing but good things to say about his Macclesfield B side,

“After picking up 9 points in three games, its class to see. We have turned a corner, and we said this was going to happen, the lads have started to gel and it’s great to see.

We can see this team concedes loads, so we are going to be looking to punish them early and straight from the get-go. We’re looking for a composed and professional performance from minute one until the 90th, 97thminute.”

Jermaine Birch will, unfortunately, be unavailable for the game against Coventry, a massive miss for the club and player after the form he has shown in the last few games.

“Jermaine will be missed, but we have some great players in front of him, we are just hoping to continue the good form the attackers have seen, and it would be good to see Hayden getting on the scoresheet.”

The game on the 16th of December kicks of at midday at Egerton, ahead of Macclesfield FC U19 C’s fixture against an Aston Villa U19 B side.
