After losing to AFC Globe 2-1 last week, with Tom Garbett grabbing his first goal of the season, Wyrley got back to winning ways with a 4-1 victory in the Cup. 

With Nigel Crook & Danny Coates back in the middle of the park, Wyrley dominated early proceedings and it was these two who were influential in the first goal. Coates hit a 30 yard left foot shot which the keeper failed to hold and Crook followed in to take the ball round the keeper and slot home.

After 15 minutes Wyrley increased their lead as Crook headed cleanly home from a superb Mike Clayton corner.

Wyrley suffered a set back as Liam Faherty clashed with the keeper and had to go off with a broken collar bone – disappointed not to having won a penalty ! Sam Burkett came on and worked hard in an unfamiliar position.

Wyrley then continued to play some entertaining football on a heavy pitch, being well in cotrol of the game. Just before half time Matt Moseley continued his recent goalscoring form with a well finished effort, lifting the ball over the keeper. Half-time 3-0.

The second half saw C&R change tactics and throw caution to the wind with 3 up front. They duly pulled a goal back as a left wing cross-come shot sailed over Pollard into the net. Wyrley struggled to get to grips with the new formation but as the half wore on, great effort by the lads, with Mike Clayton and Tom Garbett doing particularly well, saw Wyrley re-gain some control.

Matt Moseley grabbed his second of the game with another fine finish as the ever-reliable defence of Andy Clayton, Mark Whitehouse and Jeff Wright stood firm again to close out the game.
