BRERETON TOWN 3 v 5 WYRLEY JUNIORS UNITED
In the strange humidity and heat on this fine October morning both teams strived to play their normal games and it can be said that both teams put in a tremendous amount of effort much to their credit. The first half was perhaps the untidier of the two, many half chances went begging by both teams, Jack Addison having another inspired game between the Wyrley posts. Louie Parish, Lewis Hall and Tom Wheeldon all had opportunities but just couldn’t find the finishing touch, and so it was the unfortunate Brereton defender who broke the deadlock heading into his own net to put Wyrley one up at half time. The second half took a little while to settle but Wyrley started to put some passing moves together, Tom Peacock, Elliot Crook and Sam Foreman linking well in midfield, Wyrley began to win many of the aerial exchanges and started to get a bit more possession than in the first half, Brereton however levelled the game with about 15 minutes or so to go, United replied almost immediately when Tom Wheeldon hit his first goal hooking the ball over the stranded keeper to put United 2-1 up. This was the catalyst to the most extraordinary last 10 minutes we have witnessed all season, Brereton struck back almost straight away, a fine one handed parry by Addison in the Wyrley goal only found a town player his shot was prodded home right on the goal line to bring the scores level again. Some great play down the Wyrley right saw Sam Foreman break free and hit his shot true enough to fine the corner of the Brereton net, a minute later man of the match Elliot Crook rampaged forward only to fine his legs swept away from him in the box. He then stepped up to plant the pen safely into the top corner of the net. A few minutes later and Tom Wheeldon hit his second leaving the town defence in his wake before hitting his shot accurately into the corner of the net. Breretons head never dropped and they got a third just on the final whistle.
This was a great team effort boys well done!
