Wyrley Panthers U8’s v Colron Friendly Match

The boys played really well in their first start of the season. Unfortunately, they fell behind to a slightly fortunate goal by Colron. However, this only made the boys more determined and they put Colron under sever pressure especially in the second-half, which was spent almost entirely in the Colron half.

The boys were perseverant till the very end and equalised through that man Ashton ‘Goals’ Cooper who provided an unerring finish. Unfortunately, the boys ran out of time to get any further goals that their second half performance deserved.

If it had not been for the heroics of the Magpies goalkeeper in this game it could have been a cricket score. The boys were relentless in their approach and never gave the opposition a moment. Chance after chance was created before George Whitehouse slalomed through the defence and brilliantly slipped the ball home. The goal relieved the tension that had started to build and the boys continued to create chance galore but were only thwarted by some outstanding saves by the keeper, one save from an effort from Josh ‘Smasher’ Mason was particularly impressive.

However, he could not keep the boys out for long and following further sustained pressure Josh Reynolds and Ashton Cooper added to the scoreline. The boys showed no sign of rustiness in their performances and look in good shape to continue their glowing performances of last season. All of this without the goalkeeping of Lewis ‘the Cat’ Rochelle who was sadly missed by everyone. Get well soon Lewis!

The future looks bright, the future looks black and white!!

Congratulations to the squad which consisted of Louis Beasley, Sam Scott, George Whitehouse, Rio Parkes-Mahoney, Ben Maginness, Josh Reynolds, Ben Herrington, Josh Mason, Ashton Cooper and Lucas Tibbs.

Man of the Matches today go to Ben Maginness and Rio Parkes-Mahoney for their bulldozing runs from midfield.
