Result from the Charity Game!

To have 10 of the Wyrley family sweeping snow off the pitch, walkways and car park at 9.15 on a bitter Sunday morning to get this game playable says it all about this great club of ours.
The result of the game was always going to be secondary – the fact our First Team won 3 – 0 against a team including Martin O’Connor and Don Goodman was the icing (almost literally with the state of the pitch!) on the cake.

After tremendous support from nearly every team within Wyrley Juniors, Managers, ex Managers, family and friends of Andy, Georgina and Hannah, the magnificent sum of nearly £6,500

was raised.

The game was covered by Central News, Express and Star and the Evening Mail, to hopefully highlight the need for funding to find a cure for the meningitis strain that cruelly took Liam away from us.

There were some tremendous efforts by more than a few individuals within the Club and I was, to quote Trevor Smith, ‘Proud to be Wyrley!’

I know that no other Club could have carried off what we achieved today and I must express my thanks to everyone who contributed in any small way – well done!

Once again – Proud to be Wyrley!
