Wyrley Panthers v Great Barr Harriers Friendly Match

The Panthers ended the season on a high note with a slick performance against Great Barr!

Early pressure from the Panthers told when they opened the scoring through a rampaging Josh Reynolds goal, who was up and down the pitch all game snapping into tackles and creating opportunities for others.

The Panthers extended their lead not long after when Ben ‘Whizza’ Herrington finished a beautifully slick move when he finished in the corner with his left foot.

Whizza and George Whitehouse were creating havoc on the wings, when suddenly Great Barr struck back from a corner. Louis Beesley, who had another great game deputising in goal, could not hold on to a corner in the slippery conditions and the Great Barr striker scored from less than a yard.

Great Barr looked dangerous on the break but great work from stand in defenders Rio Parkes-Mahoney, Josh ‘Smasher’ Mason, Ben ‘Tank’ Maginness and Whizza alongside the majestic Sam ‘Scotty’ Scott ensured no further goals were conceded.

The Panthers got back into their stride and extended their lead from a lovely left footed finish from Ashton ‘Goals’ Cooper. Louis Beesley had returned to his right wing position and following some fancy footwork had managed to locate ‘Goals’ Cooper in the middle.

The final goal of the match was certainly worth waiting for. Some nice work out on the right hand side by Louis Beesley to retain the ball lead to Josh ‘Smasher’ Mason playing a lovely left-footed ball to Ben ‘Tank’ Maginness, who then weaved through the defence, beating at least three players, before slotting the ball in the corner.

A great display from the boys tops off an incredible season. Well-done lads.
