The All New Wyrley Colts hit their biggest charity target yet with £1350 for the Compton Hospice “Raise The Roof” appeal with a charity football match against local rivals Willenhall Colts, which saw Wyrley triumph 9-2.
The evening was sponsored by Morris Homes and TATA Steel and the players were given superstar introductions from X Factor’s Voiceover Man, Peter Dickson. The teams drafted in late substitutions, with mascots Wyrley Bear and Walsall FC’s Swifty taking to the pitch, but were both sent off by Bilston League referee, Ryan Bolton, for exceeding the Under 10 age bracket!
The after-match presentation saw players receive their individual trophies and the following awards:
TATA Steel Winners’ Cup: Wyrley Colts Under 10’s
Morris Homes Runners’ Up Cup: Willenhall Colts Under 10’s
Morris Homes Man of the Match: Oliver Hilton – Wyrley Colts
I massive thanks to Willenhall Colts and their generosity for raising £500, and to all of the Wyrley players and their donators for raising the additional £850. The cheque will be presented to Compton Hospice”Raise The Roof” appeal.
