The Panthers returned to winning ways with two victories today and more importantly two outstanding performances. The lads really stepped up their game after the disappointment of last week. Each and every player put in 110% effort and were rewarded with a 2-0 victory in the first game and a 1-0 victory in the second.

In the first game of the day the Panthers thoroughly outplayed Lane Head beating them 2-0. The game could have ended 6 or 7 with the lads creating chances at will through great wing play from Sam Scott and Ben Herrington. The Panthers looked safe at the back with the unbeatable George Whitehouse sweeping behind Man-of-the-Match Lucas Tibbs, who opened the scoring with a great strike. The second goal from goals machine Ashton Cooper was a long time in coming, but was thoroughly deserved. Stand-in goalkeeper Louis Beasley hardly touched the ball thanks to a powerful and committed display epitomised by the work-rate of Ben Maguinness in midfield.

In the second game the Panthers put out a much changed team against an aggressive Bloxwich Rangers side. The Panthers could have gone behind early in the game if it had not been for a last-ditch tackle from Josh Mason in the Panthers penalty box. Tricky wingers Rio Parkes-Mahoney and Louis Beasley were the main attacking outlets with nice touches from Josh Reynolds in midfield. It was Louis Beasley’s cross that created the only goal of the game with Ashton Cooper nodding the ball in off the post. The Panthers held out for victory with good defending from Josh Mason and Ben Herrington and some late saves from Man-of-the-Match Sam Scott.

Well done to all the boys for the huge effort and commitment they put in today your coaches are extremely proud of you. Roll on next week.

The squad today consisted of: Louis Beasley, Sam Scott, Lucas Tibbs, George Whitehouse, Josh Mason, Ben Herrington, Josh Reynolds, Rio Parkes-Mahoney, Ben Maguinness and Ashton Cooper.
