Castle 1 vs Wyrley Juniors 6

Haydn Nash turned in a man of the match performance to celebrate his 21st Birthday & secure a 6-1 victory for Wyrley as they remain joint top of the league.

Wyrley had to battle terrificly hard in the first half, defending set pieces & long throw-ins extremely well whilst being against the slope & the wind but always played the better football in open play & were unlucky not to be in front before Castle took the lead on the half hour mark from a corner.

Half Time 1-0

The second half was always going to be a different story and so it proved as within 5 minutes of the re-start Wyrley were back on level terms. Dan Bourke had the vision & Beckham like ability to fire a telling, pin-point cross-field pass onto the toes of his wing partner Nash, who beat his full back and fired in from close range. Matt Moseley then scored with a close range effort before Nash received a thrown in from Higgs, beat 3 players and slotted a left foot shot calmly into the far corner of the net. Moseley scored the next with a left foot shot that just beat the keeper.

Team goal of the game came when Wyrley broke from a Castle corner. Griffiths played the ball down the line for Ashley Gunn to pick up and cross intelligently for centre half Josh Bradley to back heel into the net.

The final goal came after Wyrley were awarded a free kick 30 yards out. Griffiths stepped up and struck a tremendous shot over the wall that arrowed into the net beyond the despairing dive of the Castle keeper.
