Wyrley Panthers v Bustlehome Baggies Friendly Match

The Panthers started the season with a bang with a polished performance against the Baggies! The Panthers put the Baggies under pressure from the start but had to wait until the stroke of half time for the breakthrough. It was worth waiting for when George Whitehouse curled a beautiful effort in to the top corner.

The floodgates opened in the second half and there were further goals added by Ashton ‘Goals’ Cooper, who almost bagged a hatrick but settled for two, and goals from wingers Ben ‘Tank’ Maginness and Ben ‘Whizza’ Herrington.

The Panthers were relentless in their attacking play and wingers Tank and Whizza almost unplayable with their pace and dribbling skills.

However, it was the performance of sweeper Rio Parkes-Mahoney that really caught the eye. Rio won the ball continuously and strolled out and played the ball from the back with a commanding presence. Rio deservedly won the man of the match for this display! The Panthers did concede a consolation goal.

Wyrley Panthers v Four Oaks Scorpions

Panthers continued their scintillating football with three goals against the Scorpions but it could have been so many more.

Again, it was through getting the ball out wide early and getting crosses into the box that created havoc. Wingers Tank, Whizza and Josh ‘Smasher’ Mason were the threats out wide.

The goals were scored by Louis ‘The Comic’ Beesley, George Whitehouse and Whizza.

Man of the Match went to Smasher who managed to get himself on the ball and put in his usual bone-thuddering tackles! A mention also goes to Lewis ‘the Cat’ Rochelle who kept his concentration and kept a clean sheet.

A great start to the season for the boys!
