Wow! What a weekend for the boys – with 13 goals being scored by the boys in the two games!

Wyrley Panthers v Shire Oak Saints

The boys were quick to get into their stride and we could not believe as we came onto the pitch at half time that the game remained at 0-0 thanks to some amazing saves from the Saints’ keeper who was man of the half by far.  The boys had looked relentless in their attacking and it was surely a matter of time before the boys grabbed a deserved goal.

Those goals came in the second half as the boys remained patient and did not panic at not having scored in the first half.

A quick fire hat-trick from Ben ‘Whizza’ Herrington, who looked on fire all day and took his form from last week into this.  Another goal was scored by Josh Reynolds, who gave a tigerish display in midfield.  I was impressed with how Josh took into the game what we had been coaching him in training about constantly making himself available in the centre of midfield and getting himself into a passing line.  As a result, Josh was deservedly named man of the match.

Well done boys!

Wyrley Panthers v Brownhills Community Colts

A superb attacking performance from the boys in this game ensured they came away having scored 9 goals and some of them were absolute worldies!

Some of the movement, one-touch passing and crossing into the box was exceptional.

The goals were scored by Ashton ‘Goals’ Cooper (3), Ben ‘Whizza’ Herrington (3 and 6 for the day), Rio Parkes-Mahoney (1), Sam ‘Scotty’ Scott (1) and Ben ‘Tank’ Maginness (1).

Although the boys attacked with glee, occasionally this meant leaving gaps at the back as everyone wanted to get in on the act and have their piece of glory leaving Josh ‘Smasher’ Mason and Lewis ‘the Cat’ Rochelle on their own at the back.  Both players were resolute with Smasher making several last ditch tackles to stop goalscoring opportunities.  Smasher has also improved his communication helping him to organise the defence better.  As a result of Smasher’s tackles, interceptions and communication he was awarded man of the match for his endeavour.  Many players can feel rightly disappointed that they did not win man of the match trophies this week as their attacking displays were a joy to behold.

A superb weekend of football which made me immensely proud of our team!
