Wolves U’9s suffered a disappointing weekend for results picking up just one point from their two games at a bitterly cold Leamore Park on Sunday. The fact that matches were running 30minutes late probably did not help Wolves as they struggled to get going in either game.

Wolves first game was against a Silverdale Throstles team who they had beaten 3-0 just two weeks earlier. It was a bit of a surprise then that Wolves fell behind after seven minutes when the dangerous Silverdale striker skipped past Thomas and smashed home past a helpless Jordan.  Silverdale could have gone even further ahead before the end of the first half with Jordan returning to his best to make a couple of excellent and brave saves at the feet of Silverdale players.

The second half saw Wolves push for the equaliser with Callum, Ben & Lily all going close. It appeared that Wolves were going to finish this game pointless until MOTM Regan set Lily free down the left flank. Still with much work to do Lily cut inside the Silverdale defence before unleashing a shot which although the keeper held, had already crossed the line.

The remaining three minutes saw the real Wolves turn up as they pressed for a winner. Despite both Josh and Cam going close Wolves just could not make the break through as time was against them.

Wolves’ second game will hopefully last long in their memories as a timely reminder of how not to compete. Without being over critical it is fair to say that by now Wolves’ blood was closer to freezing than boiling as they suffered a lesson learning defeat at the hands of Wyrley Panther to the tune of 6-0.

In fairness the scoreline flattered Panthers as Wolves had much of the first half possession, however where the two teams were miles apart was in the finishing department. Panthers were clinical whilst Wolves could just not buy a goal despite Lily and Callum going close. It was clinical finishing which gave Panthers a 4-0 half time lead and whilst Wolves did sure things up in the second half with the introduction of Ed, Jake & Josh, there was nothing they could do to prevent Panthers adding another two goals before the final whistle.

Even in defeat you have to find the positives in football and I know this group of players will come back stronger and hungrier for this experience.

    Wolves, you’ll remember this game for a long time but the most important thing is that you learn from it, taking what you have learnt into your future matches.
