United finished the season with a creditable draw against the division league champions and in doing so, maintain our unbeaten home record. A great achievement by the boys as this was our first season playing the eleven a side format. A strong wind blowing from one end of the pitch made it difficult for both teams to play their usual game, but it was United with the wind at their backs in the first half who struck first, A Sam Foreman free-kick finding the net from the edge of the box. Panthers got a goal back almost straight away. United then went two goals clear Tom Wheeldon stabbed a Foreman cross towards the Panthers goal, the unfortunate keeper just letting the ball squirm through his legs and it just crossed the line. Foreman hit another free-kick which the keeper managed to push over via the crossbar. Wheeldon hit his second a few minutes later after beating the defender to the ball before finding the corner of the net. The wind seem to get stronger in the second half and the Panthers fought back to put United under pressure, their second goal was a well taken free-kick, and Wyrley just failed to clear the ball and were punished when Panthers got their equaliser. Their were a few good performances today by the United players but the man of the match was given to Louie Parish for an excellent 15 minute spell in the second half.

What a great first season boys, you have all performed brilliantly and finishing 3rd is a great effort, well done!
