Wyrley continued their impressive start to the season but they had to do it the hard way after a hard fought game against Romulus, Wyrley’s preparations were not helped when goalkeeper Reece Duckers was held up at a school admissions test meaning he missed kick off, this forced a reshuffle with Ben Lockley acting as stand in keeper. The reshuffle appeared to affect Wyrley and they struggled to play their usual game and Romulus enjoyed the lions share of possession and it was little surprise when they took an early lead with a close range finish from Theo Powell as he reacted quickest to fire home.
Jack Hems and Jamie Hitchborne battled to gain control of the midfield but Wyrley were lacking composure and they struggled to exert any real pressure on the Romulus goal. The arrival of Reece Duckers didn’t show the impact Wyrley hoped as his first task was to pick the ball out of the net as Zak Shaw rose unchallenged to head home on 20mins.
Wyrley finally produced some decent play and Ethan Richardson turned and fired home from 25 yards after neat play down the Wyrley left, this saw them gain confidence and a couple of half chances went begging as they went in search of an equaliser.
The 2nd half was end to end and Wyrley had the better of the possession but it was Romulus who played the better football as Wyrley huffed and puffed but their eagerness to get back on level terms resulted in some sloppy play. Jack Hems did find an equaliser with a trademark finish to continue his excellent start to the season. Kai Reeve was denied by a goalline clearance from Charlie Giblin and Ben Lockley’s sweet volley was turned round the post by a terrific save from Kieran Hart before another goalline clearance from Giblin denied Juniors again.
As the game entered the final stages Wyrley were awarded a corner, which was whipped in and a thunderous header from Jack Snoddy beat the keeper to seal the 3 points.
This was an entertaining game in which Wyrley were far from their best but they showed great tenacity and a never say die attitude resulted in an decent comeback but they will be hoping for a big improvement in their next outing.
Wyrley would like to wish James,Mark & Alan good luck for the season and we look forward to further battles later in the season.
