Tigers versus Tipton Town

The Tigers kicked off their first game without Kian Cox, and also had to contend with harsh weather conditions. The Tigers instantly penned Tipton into their own half and kept them there for the first ten minutes, creating several chances but failing to convert their superiority into goals due to a fine Tipton goalkeeper. Tom Sutton and Armaan Sohi came closest to breaking the deadlock.

The second half much the same with Tipton only breaking out occasionally. The first goal came from Aran Poonian after a goalmouth scramble, when he was on hand to tap home from close range. The Tigers continued to press, but a combination of the weather and a muddy pitch did not help to produce a flowing game.

The Tigers showed a stronger will to win and added a deserved second through Scott Grosvenor-Hayes, with a shot from the edge of the box. that squirmed through the keepers hands, which was unfortunate on the goalie. The boys continued to battle for every ball and ran out deserved winners.

Tigers versus Bloxwich Rangers

The Tigers were looking to set the record straight in the second game, having failed to notch a win against Bloxwich this season. The lads were well up for it and with the playing surface allowing the ball to roll more fluidly, the game was much more entertaining spectacle.

Both teams traded attacks but the Tigers were edging it and Tom Sutton was really getting himself around the Bloxwich defence. He got a quick brace midway through the first half as a result of this good work, with both shots being struck with real power from inside the box.

The second half saw Joe Timmins called upon to make three saves, which were all excellent one handed efforts. Bloxwich did get one back but the Tigers were looking solid at the back now and deservedly closed out the match.

Man of the match today was Tom Sutton, who showed a real willingness to work for the team, as well as be able to produce when in possession.

Well done to all the players, Aran, Bradley, Cole, Armaan, Lewis, Joe T, Joe R, Tom and Scott.
