Cole Askey was unable to attend this week’s fixtures and Jak Biddle is unable to play but came to watch the squad in full support for his friends!


The Tigers came into this game following narrow back to back defeats from the previous weekend and it was their first real test following the opening weekends defeat to Lane Head Tigers. The game started in ominous fashion as possession was being given up by each team, and it was the Hawks who struck first following some indecisive defensive work in the Tigers box. This spurred the Tigers into action and that well honed resilience kicked in as they began to dominate the game. It was no surprise when they got back on level terms just before halftime. Tom Sutton tested the keepers gloves with a stinging shot and Armaan Sohi was there to follow up the rebound. 1-1 at HT. The second half saw incessant Tigers pressure as chances came and went, but the winning goal was worth the wait with Joe Rodda making a dash down the right wing before delivering a great cross which Armaan Sohi duly slotted past the keeper. It was a really well crafted goal and was the least the Tigers deserved. 2-1 FT.


The second game saw the Tigers face up to a team that only a couple of weeks ago had really stretched them, in the shape of Bloxwich Rangers. It was a memorable comeback that day to turnaround a half time 2 goal deficit and it was interesting to see how far the Tigers had trained on. The match began with keeper Joe Timmins replacing Joe Rodda upfront, and Aran Poonian taking over goal keeping duties. The first half saw no real incident as each team struggled to break down the opposing defence. The second half saw Joe Rodda introduced, partnering Tom Sutton upfront, with Joe Timmins back in goal and Aran Poonian slotting into defence. The Tigers were on the front foot and saw 2 glorious opportunities pass them by. First Joe Rodda took advantage of a keeping error only for the keeper to make amends with a fine block. Then Tom Sutton was clean through and again the keeper did well to come out and narrow the angle, forcing Tom’s effort wide. Bloxwich will have been relieved to take anything from this game as the Tigers dominated the second half thanks in no small measure to the composure of Aran Poonian in bringing the ball out from defence. FT 0-0.

Well done to Kian Cox (c), Aran Poonian, Joe Rodda, Scott Grosvenor-Hayes, Lewis Hall, Armaan Sohi, Tom Sutton, Bradley Nutting and Joe Timmins.
