Wyrley Panthers U7’s v Ashmore Park Rangers Friendly Match

The Panthers started the match on the front foot and created some good chances in a first half where the huge slope was a contributing factor. Ashmore were struggling to get out of their own half with the pressure the Panthers were exerting on them. A fine individual effort from Man of the Match Louis Beesley from near the halfway line was one of the highlights of the first half.

In the end, the goal came from Ashton Cooper who swept in the rebound following a great run and long-range effort from Sam Scott. It could have been more at half time had it not been for good work from the Ashmore keeper.

The second half was more difficult for the Panthers playing uphill. However, they continued to create chances despite this. They did require the services of keeper Lewis Rochelle on more than one occasion but he was up to the task of keeping a clean sheet. Well done!

Wyrley Panthers U7’s v Tipton Youth Friendly Match

Due to a number of changes to the team from the first game the Panthers found it difficult to get into their stride in this game. Although solid at the back due to a Man of the Match performance from George Whitehouse, they lacked the fluidity going forward of the previous game.

The Panthers were subjected to some robust challenges in this game but did not shy away from the physicality of their opponents. The Panthers were unlucky not to score from one of many free kicks they were awarded, when Ben Herrington’s effort floated only a few inches over the bar.

The game ebbed and flowed too and fro, keeper Lewis Rochelle made some more excellent saves and really commended his area well.

A draw was probably a fair result on this occasion.

Well done to the Panthers on two hard-fought results where not only did they show skill and technique but also an abundance of guts and determination.

Today’s match squad consisted of: Lewis Rochelle, Sam Scott, George Whitehouse, Lucas Tibbs, Josh Mason, Ben Herrington, Josh Reynolds, Ben Maginness, Louis Beesley, Ashton Cooper.
