WYRLEY TIGERS 2 v 0 BEACON TIGERS
This was Tigers first competitive game for two months and the boys were really up for this first match, Tigers soaked up some early pressure as Beacon pushed forward, Tigers defence remained solid and with some good passing always looked a threat on the break, Ben Southall and Elliot Crook always energetic up front, It was Crook who opened the scoring after a spell of Tigers pressure, his shot from the edge of the box deflected of an unlucky Beacon defender to find the corner of the net, shortly after, man of the match Crook made it 2, a low shot across the goalkeeper, the ball nestled once more into the corner of the net. The second half was not quite as frenetic as the first, Tom Peacock and Harry Simkin playing well at the back to keep Beacon at bay, helping Tigers to keep a clean sheet and clinch the win.
CRESSWELL WANDERERS 0 v 1 WYRLEY TIGERS
The Tigers worked hard for this win, Cresswell were equally as determined during the first half of this game, although there wasn’tmany goal bound chances as both teams cancelled one another out. Tigers started brightly in the second half, Ben Southall injecting some pace into the game and Duncan Reilly just failing to make good contact on a cross field ball with the goal at his mercy. Sam Foreman was a threat for the Tigers, his corners and free kicks causing problems in the Cresswell defence, a Foreman ball into the box, was neatly controlled by Southall who unselfishly set up Elliot Crook, who dispatched the ball into the corner of the net. A good block from Tom Rowlands and safe hands from Harry Simkin helped keep the Wanderers out. Man of the Match was William Meredith for his tireless work throughout the game. A special mention to Brad Clements and Tom Laxton for being patient and giving 100% when they took to the pitch.
