MATCH REPORT 23/09/2012


  What a difference a week makes, after playing the first two games in glorious sunshine and barely a month into Autumn, we were subject to nigh on wintery conditions. Constant rain throughout this game couldn’t put a damper on United’s efforts but they were made to work hard by Beacon who competed well from start to finish. Wyrley did get a lucky break to take the lead, Tom Wheeldon put pressure on the Beacon defence, in their panic to clear the ball, their clearance rebounded off the head of one their players and then ran straight into the goal. The rest of the half was a close contest, Wyrley had opportunities to stretch their lead further but Wheeldon and Louie Parish just lost their radar a little in front of goal and were unable to trouble the Beacon keeper. The second half saw Beacon come out with an intention to get back into the game and possession wise probably just edged the first few minutes of this half, Tom Peacock and United man of the match Sam Foreman however raised their game and were making the right decisions when in possession. Foreman went clear in the inside right position and his ball across the goal was forced home by Zak Hallett, at two up this was no time sit back but United had to endure some pressure from Beacon, United defended well and Jack Addison handled the ball superbly in the difficult conditions, with Beacon pushing on, a through ball from Jake Higgins bisected the Beacon defence, Parish followed the ball and when the keeper spilled it was on hand to tap the rebound into an empty net. Beacon still pushed forward and their efforts were eventually rewarded when their striker found the corner of the net from just inside the box. With a further ten minutes left in the half Lewis Hill worked hard for possession, with five minutes to go Hill and Foreman combined well to feed Wheeldon who ran clear to neatly finish past the oncoming keeper, and a minute before the end of this match Wheeldon struck his second from just inside the box, United running out 5-1 winners. 

Although you were all freezing todayand playing in very uncomprimising conditions you never gave up lads, great effort and a great result.
