Wyrley Panthers v Pelsall Villa Friendly Match

What a performance from the boys! Every time the lads attacked it looked as though they would score against a decent Pelsall Villa side, with their free flowing, passing football.

Josh Reynolds began the scoring with a beautiful diving header from a quickly taken corner routine with Lucas ‘Tibbsy’ Tibbs supplying the sublime cross.

The next goal came from a sumptuous 20-yarder from George Whitehouse, which looked a goal from the moment it left his boot.

The Pelsall Villa goal was under attack constantly and the further pressure resulted in a chipped finish from Tibbsy following great work from the effective Rio Parkes-Mahoney.

Ashton ‘Goals’ Cooper netted a deserved goal for all his hard work and running with an outside of the right foot finish.

Finally, Rio got the goal his display deserved late on. Then, he decided to help himself to another one before the whistle blew. Rio has put in some blistering performances early in the season, let’s hope he can keep up this level of performance he has set himself.

The Panthers could have scored more goals if it had not been for the woodwork. Ben ‘Whizza’ Herrington, over the two games, hit the bar and post on a number of occasions, with one of his efforts surely crossing the line. However, he picked up man-of-the match for his tireless and silky display; always willing to take his man on and not panicking in possession.

Wyrley Panthers v Perton Friendly Match

It took him considerably longer to get off the mark last season but captain for the day, Josh ‘Smasher’ Mason, scored in his second game of the season with a fine finish at the far post following a beautiful run and cross from George Whitehouse. Smasher seemed to take extra confidence from being handed the Captain’s armband before kick off and deserved his goal.

Against a relatively new Perton side, the Panthers poured forward at every opportunity and created plenty of chances to score more but chances came and went to the disappointment of the crowd.

However, the crowd was buoyed by a wonderful, long-range effort from Ben ‘Tank’ Maginness. Tank took the ball beautifully in his stride before dispatching it past the Perton keeper.

Smasher was awarded man of the match for his confident and assured performance.

Two superb games to watch and the Panthers can take confidence into their game with Brewood next week.

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