Having suffered a set back on the opening day of the season against two very good teams in what appears to be an extremely competitive league the Panthers bounced back on Sunday in style.
The Panthers opened with a game against Ashmore Park Rangers. Recently the Panthers had faced Rangers in a tournament and had been held to a hard-fought 0-0 draw. However, on this occasion the Panthers prevailed with a well-earned 1-0 victory with the goal scored by Ben Maginness. The match was a tight affair and the Panthers kept a clean sheet thanks to the heroics of goalkeeper and Man-of-the-Match, Lewis Rochelle.
In the second game, despite having the majority of the possession and chances the Panthers were held to a goalless draw by Shire Oak Acorns. The Panthers will have been disappointed not to have won this game but can take heart from a gutsy and determined display epitomised by Man-of-the Match Ben Maginness.
Well done to all the lads who played on Sunday and we look forward to next week’s matches against Cresswell Wanderers and Tipton Youth. Thank you to all the parents for their continued support and the lads who really put in 110% this week.
