They were playing in difficult and challenging conditions due to torrid wind and, at times, biting rain, but today the Wyrley Lions lived up to their name with two battling performances against Brownhills and Sedgley Scorpions.

The first match was against Brownhills, with Joshua Hodson starting the game as goalkeeper. He continued in a defensive position in the second half and showed plenty of the skills he is becoming renowned for with some good dribbling and tricks on display.

Joe Iannarilli also showed some good dribbling today and made a series of important tackles, adding this new element to his game. Lewis Titley also defended well with a series of great clearances and tackles in first half, he then switched to a spell in goal in the second half and was unlucky to concede a very scrappy goal.

Alex Haywood continued his excellent form from the previous match. He was all over the pitch making decisive tackles and showing skilled dribbling. Fraser Hinds also made a string of good tackles and showed how much his dribbling has improved recently.

In the second half Lewis Seedhouse came on and made a series of good passes and tackles. Oliver Donoghue came on as a lively substitute, showing just how well he tackles players and making pacy forward runs.

The second match was against Sedgley Scorpions. This match saw Lewis Seedhouse in goalĀ  for the first half. He had a pretty quite half as defensively the Wyrley Lions were strong. Lewis didn’t concede any goals and then almost scored himself from close range in the second half.

Joshua played really well in defence and making intelligent passes that found players time and time again. He showed strength and bravery to return to the pitch after he received a heavy blow to the stomach.

Joe put in a good first half performance showing effort and some excellent dribbling. He was unlucky not to poke the ball over the line in a goalmouth scramble. Lewis Titley also displayed great tackling skills. He never stopped working for the team, always running, always involved.

Alex had another impressive game, with fantastic passing, dribbling and tackles. He also showed another aspect to his game when he played really well in defence. Fraser took over the goalkeepers jersey in the second half. He played very well, making some good clearances and one very good save. It was a good performance and didn’t concede any goals.

Finally, Oliver was very good pressing high up the pitch, putting the opposition defence under constant pressure and winning the ball in dangerous areas.

All in all, two pleasing performances from the battling Lions.
