Today was the day for panthers to shine! and they didn’t disappoint with such wonderful support they have. the panthers had been drawn with a very good side who we knew would be a great contest. Both teams started extremely well hitting each others cross bars with some tremendous strikes from distance, both teams played some fantastic passing football and continued in closing each other down. panthers eventually opened the scoring with a well worked goal, passing to perfection from the back and finished by Richie Williams with a thunderous left foot strike from outside the area. 1-0 to the Wyrley boys. the panthers kept pressing and winning the ball back quickly to stop the opposition scoring with long range efforts. it wasn’t long before the panthers extended there lead with Ryan Jones winning the ball by the corner flag on the right flank and volleying it in with a curling effort, fantastic goal. 2-0 at half time. Both teams came out and continued to display some breath taking football at times, every player on the pitch gave it their all which was a testament on how to play the game in the right way. Panthers extended their lead again when Wilson Cooper was fouled outside the box, then to dust himself off and smash it in off the crossbar leaving the keeper no chance. the opposition continued to counter attack the panthers causing problems and managed to break our defence finishing the game 3-1. great reports back from both teams said what a wonderful game this was. As knowing the opposition and playing games in the past I knew we had to be on top of our game as its always been close fought matches before. well done both teams!
