Athletico Bridge 0 v 5 Wyrley Juniors

Wyrley got their first points on the board with a stunning reaction to last weeks 5-0 defeat, beating Athletico Bridge by the same score.

Athletico struggled to live with the high quality and blistering pace of the Wyrley attacks and the game was effectively over by half time as Wyrley raced into a 4-0 lead. 

The scoring started when the returning Dan Bourke won a tackle deep in his own half, played a neat one-two with Luke Shail and released Josh Griffiths down the right. Josh crossed low, the full back failed to clear and Matt Moseley took one touch, created space and blasted in from close range.

Ageless Andy Clayton then set up the second with a through ball that Mark Whitehouse cleverly controlled before advancing into the box and scoring through the keepers legs.

The third goal started with the keeper James Goddard keeping calm and passing the ball out of defence. Wyrley worked the ball up to Josh Griffiths who cooly slotted past the keeper. Dan Bourke then created the fourth, robbing the full back and sliding the ball across for Josh Griffiths to make no mistake.

Early in the second half Joe Waclawski played in Josh Griffiths, who still had plenty to do to complete his first ever hatrick.

Ashley Gunn & Andy Clayton won everything at the back, being supported well by Jeff Wright, Matthew Higgs & Joe Waclawski. Behind them well done to James Goddard for keeping a clean sheet.

Dan Bourke & Luke Shail worked tirelessly in midfield with Mark Whitehouse adding the grit that we had missed in the first two league games.

Mike Clayton & Jay Brown both showed excellent composure, ball control and passing ability. Overall a very pleasing performance that needs to be repeated next week in our first home game against Noah’s Ark.

A quick thank you also to Bob & Julie at the New Talbot for laying on sausage & chips – much appreciated by all.    

Team: 4-4-2
