Wyrley Panthers v Perton Friendly Match
In this game the Panthers laid siege to the Perton goal for most of the contest.
The first goal came from Sam ‘Scotty’ Scott, playing in a more advanced role than normal in the centre of midfield. His quick feet in the area brought a foul and a clear penalty. Scotty stepped up and dispatched the penalty fiercely into the corner. The keeper did well to get a hand to the ball and was unlucky that the ball continued over the line.
A second goal was inevitable with such pressure and was scored by Ben ‘Tank’ Maginness. Tank bustled through the midfield and into the box and placed a curled right-footed effort neatly into the top corner.
Scotty scored the final goal with a long-range effort that took a deflection off a Perton defender on its way into the net.
The Panthers produced some lovely passing football in this game with a lot of slick one and two touch passing carving open the defence on many occasions.
Again, more ruthlessness in front of goal and there could have been more goals.
Wyrley Panthers v Brewood Friendly Match
The Panthers started the brighter with chances being created through the midfield with Josh Reynolds at the heart of everything and Tank putting in a shift up front.
Panthers never looked like conceding at the back with George Whitehouse and Scotty making the Panthers goal look impregnable.
Another great long-range effort from Ben ‘Whizza’ Herrington was clawed on to the inside of the post by the goalkeeper and cleared away. Other than this there were no real clear cut chances for either side and the game resulted in a deserved draw for both sides.
The Panthers now remain unbeaten in 14 matches! Well done lads!
Squad today consisted of: Lewis Rochelle, Sam Scott, George Whitehouse, Josh Reynolds, Rio Parkes-Mahoney, Ben Herrington, Ben Maginness and Josh Mason.
