Wyrley turned up for this game a few short of usual numbers, match day conditions horrendous because of a very cold wind and icy rain. Difficult playing conditions didn’t prevent both teams trying hard to get the ball down and play some neat football. United scored first, some fine play down the Rugeley right by Elliot Crook, Tom Wheeldon and Louie Parish, the ball eventually being hit across the box, the keeper missed it and Alex Price was on hand to hit his first goal in a Wyrley shirt. United competed well and Sam Foreman and Tom Peacock were always looking for holes in the Rugeley defence, a fine ball from Peacock found Louie Parish in space and he calmly hit United’s second over the advancing Rugeley keeper. Half time and United expected a backlash from Rangers to try and get back into the game but it was United who stretched their lead further again the ball put into Tom Wheeldons path by the hard working Foreman, the former then calmly found the corner of the Rangers net. Rangers did respond and a sharp break was rewarded with a smart finish into the corner of the United net. Rangers got their tails up and a period of sustained pressure was enough to draw a rash challenge from a United defender in the box, the resulting spot kick put away well. Rangers worked hard during the last 5 minutes in search of an equaliser and pushed players forward but with just a few minutes to go and perhaps the best move of the game Crook found Parish who slipped in Wheeldon to hit his second and Wyrleys fourth.  

Well played today boys it was freezing conditions but you kept going,  to all who turned up today much appreciated, you showed excellent commitment.
