The Wyrley Tigers had a full squad this week with the exception of Jak Biddle, who will be off for a few weeks.


In a 10am kick-off, Wyrley started off on the front foot against Beechdale Juniors. The confidence from their first win last week was evident and the pressure soon told as Armaan Sohi put the Tigers 1-0 up after 5 minutes. The lead was added to with a quick-fire double from Joe Rodda before Cole Askey brought the first half to a close with a 4th goal. Half time 4 – 0 to Wyrley. The second half again saw consistent pressure from the Tigers and it was only fitting when Joe Rodda claimed his hatrick and the Tigers fifth goal midway through the half, and there was still time for Armaan Sohi to add a 6th but his shot went wide with the goal at his mercy. The final whistle blows and its 5 – 0 to Wyrley. Well done lads.

The team were greeted by their sponsors mascot which magnified the smiles on the lads faces… a treat well deserved.


The Tigers were next up against Shire Oak Magpies, and both teams were cancelling each other out until a Tom Sutton wonder goal broke the deadlock on 5 minutes. Wyrley settled down to play some good passing football and it was no surprise when Cole Askey doubled their lead just before halftime.  The second half saw a bright start from the Magpies and a goal mouth mix up led to the Magpies pulling a goal back within the 1st minute of the restart. The Wyrley defence held firm though and the Tigers continued to create their own chances before the ref blew the whistle to bring the game to  a close. The Tigers prevailing 2-1 against a decent Magpies side.

That’s 3 wins in a row for the lads and their confidence is visibly growing through working hard for each other.

Well done to all the squad – Joe Timmins, Kian Cox, Aran Poonian, Joe Rodda, Scott Grosvenor-Hayes, Lewis Hall, Armaan Sohi, Tom Sutton, Bradley Nutting and Cole Askey.
