United entertained Four Oaks Pumas from divison1 in the Lichfield league in this cup game, United however gave a good account of themselves and were unlucky not to out score their opponents at the full time whistle. Pumas took the lead giving Jack Addison no chance in the United goal with a shot from close range, this spurred Wyrley on and they gain some possession, a through ball bounced kindly to Chase Allen, his goal bound header was brilliantly saved by the covering Pumas defender preventing United from equalising, especially as United missed the resulting penalty kick. Tom Wheeldon slipped his defender to be hauled down inside the box a few minutes later, Elliot Crooks pen was saved by the keeper and pushed back towards Crook he pulled the ball back across the box and Tom Peacock opened his account for Wyrley to tap home the equaliser. Half time 1-1. Pumas made a determined start to the second half and got 2 quick goals, United did put a great passage of play together for the final 10 minutes of this game Louie Parish and Tom Wheeldon began to get into the game, after a goal area scramble the Pumas defender put the ball into his own net and then a few minutes later Wheeldon hit a superb shot into the top corner of the net to put United level. Extra Time saw United tire a little and Pumas punish a few defensive errors to eventually run out 7-3 winners.  

Great effort lads, well done man of the match Jake Higgins a solid performance, were a little unlucky today boys.
