Wyrley were hosts to league leaders Rugeley Rangers Lions and were determined to give a good account of themselves, The opening ten minutes was a little bit cat and mouse as both teams struggled to get the upper hand. Tom Wheeldon and Louie Parish led the line well for Wyrley, Wheeldon was unlucky not to get on scoresheet when a defender somehow blocked his shot from 2 yards out, United picked up the pace shortly after this and put Rugeley goal under pressure, a vibrant five minute spell saw Tom Rowlands deliver a super free kick which Elliot Crook ran onto to open the score for United, then a few minutes later the unselfish Wheeldon put Parish through whose shot from the edge of the box fizzed into the corner of the net. Half time and United were 2 goals to the good. The second half and United expected a backlash from the Lions and they duly obliged carving out their first real chance on goal but were unlucky to miss from a few yards out. Wyrley re-grouped and began to absorb the pressure  and look dangerous on the break, On one such break a Tom Peacock pass found man of the match Parish, he got free from his marker and hit Wyrley’s third. With a few minutes left United were unlucky not to make it 4 when after some good work from Lewis Hall  the ball broke free to Sam Foreman who poked the ball home, only for it to be adjudged offside.

This was another excellent team effort, perhaps the best of the season so far, the improvement staggering, please keep it up lads!
