The All New Wyrley Colts bagged the club’s first trophy in a spectaular 1-0 cup final win against rivals Wednesfield Lions at Bilston Town Football Club tonight (10.03.2011).

Wyrley were missing winger Matty Paulton for the Scott Lloyd Charity Cup showdown, but this didn’t deter the 8-man squad who commanded the game from the kick-off. Captain Jack Lyons and fellow defender Callum Perrins stood firm at the back as Tommy Farrow, Matty Bestall and Jack Parker commanded midfield feeding pinpoint passes to striker Sam Holdcroft.

Sam Holdcroft bagged the only goal of the game after 8 minutes from a Tommy Farrow pass and blasted home past the Wednesfield keeper, with substitute Conner Yates raging in central midfield and shooting twice on target.

As the second half started, Wyrley held their nerve and piled on the pressure, though Wednesfield caused a few heart-stopping moments in the last 3 minutes with a goal line scramble. Tommy Farrow’s clearance was blocked and cleared by Matty Bestall with Wednesfield turning to shoot again, despatched by captain Jack Lyons and smothered by keeper Connor Brimfield to maintain his clean sheet.

The team were cheered and applauded by the 50-strong travelling fans and everone’s favourite cuddly mascot, Wyrley Bear, as they received their cup – the team we’re proud to call Wyrley!

 Full Time: Wyrley Colts 1 – 0 Wednesfield Lions
