Wyrley Panthers U9’s Match Report 24.11.13

Wyrley Panthers v Hamstead Diamonds Friendly Match

Having been comprehensively beaten in the U9’s Cup final by the Diamonds only a few weeks ago the boys were determined to show what a good team they are and did not disappoint in this game.  The match was a credit to the league with both teams playing good football in a friendly and respectful manner and credit goes to the Diamonds players, coaches and parents for the manner in which they conduct themselves on a regular basis.

The boys were ready from the off and caught the Diamonds napping.  The Panthers were courageous and tigerish in the tackle none more so than Josh Reynolds who had a great game in midfield against a boy nearly twice his size.

Both Panthers goals were similar in nature and both were scored by Ben ‘Whizza’ Herrington.  Both goals were supplied by throw ins from Ben ‘Tank’ Maginness who was relentless in his chasing and carrying of the ball.  Whizza hit both goals first time on the volley with his right foot from long distance almost Van Bastanesque in their technique.  Two truly wonderfully technical finishes for this age of football which we have luckily become accustomed to from Whizza.

The boys continued to dominate proceedings until the Diamonds created a few chances near the end and pulled one goal back late on.  However, the boys always looked comfortable at the back with George Whitehouse and Sam ‘Scotty’ Scott covering each other well.

This was by far the best performance of the season by the boys and they did well to beat arguably one of the top teams in the area.

Wyrley Panthers v Colron Friendly Match

The game was billed as a friendly but nothing could have been further from the word.

The game was high tempo end to end stuff with not a huge amount of quality shown as both teams were cancelling each other out.

The game began to spill out of control when one of the Colron players left his studs in on Lewis Rochelle with a tackle so late most people had already turned away to see where the ball had gone and missed it.

The game then became extremely stop start as niggly fouls were taking place from both sides all over the pitch.  This did not suit the Panthers calm passing style and resulted in a 1-0 defeat in a game which was pretty even albeit ugly.

One positive aspect of the game was a quite outstanding save from Louis Beesley.

Colron celebrated their victory wildly following the final whistle which the Panthers can take as a real positive how much it meant to Colron to beat them.

Man of the matches this week went to Ben ‘Whizza’ Herrington and Louis Beesley.

Well done lads!
