The Jags took a break from league action with a visit to Cannock Town in the League Cup. Despite a shaky start to their league campaign the Jags came flying out the blocks hitting Cannock hard right from the kick off with Mason Coleman and Scott Wilding both going close as early as the second minute. The Town defence had no answer to the Jags superior passing as they piled on the pressure and it wasn’t long before the Jags were leading. Some good build up play cumulated in a fine strike from Brandon Garrett which the inform Town keeper could only parry over the bar. From the resulting corner Garrett ‘tapped’ in from close range to deservedly get his first goal for Wyrley.

The now rampant Jags continued to press the Cannock goal as their keeper made a string of fine saves, using every part of his body including his face he single-handedly managed to keep the deficit to one until late in the first half when the jags doubled their lead from Man of the Match and leading scorer Wilding.

The second half saw much of the same as the Jags confidence grew and a third was soon to come from Coleman who had run the Town’s right back ragged for most of the first twenty minutes. With some tactical changes coming from Cannock’s considerable substitutes bench the Town boys gradually came back into the game. It was the Jags keeper Josh Price who was then called into action with a couple of outstanding blocks. With the clock running down Wilding got a second to seal the Jags best performance of the season and a moral boosting win which they can now take back to the league campaign.
