Wyrley entertained Leek CSOB in the Staffs vase on Saturday and did themselves proud. Such is the strength of the squad these days the management had a difficult time picking the team, eventually making four or five changes from the Stone game. The match started with Wyrley going strong at Leek but after about 10 minutes with the storm weathered Leek began to settle. They took the lead when a cross from the left was steered home cleverly by the leek centre forward after he was left a little bit of room. From this point Wyrley looked a bit sloppy and didn’t seem to be able to get back into the game, Leek went further ahead when a corner was met with a skilfully glanced header into the far corner. Wyrley were however far from beaten.
Half time 0-2
After 10 minutes of the 2nd half Wyrley made their first change, Millard who had been pushed further forward was replaced by Durnell and Wyrley went 4-4-2. This seemed to disrupt Leek who now weren’t able to push forward as much and were leaving 2 midfielders deep when they attacked. Wyrley got a reward for all their effort when Dolman unleashed a tremendous shot from 25 yards and left the Leek goalie rooted to the spot. It was clear this pushed Wyrley up a gear and so another change was made when Darby came on to give more width and stretch Leek. Despite all the pressure another goal would not come and so a third change was made and Wyrley pushed 3 up front and went 3 at the back. Leek held out though and progress somewhat fortunately to the next round. We wish them well. The management are very proud of the whole squad. We would all like to thank the ball boys who did a tremendous job and for all the support we received.
