WYRLEY TIGERS 1 v 1 WEDNESFIELD COLTS
Tigers took on a team from one division above in the last 16 of the under 9’s cup and acquitted themselves pretty well, In fact Tigers took the lead after only a few minutes the lively Ben Southall placing the ball home to add to his already impressive goal tally. Tigers saw the half out quite comfortably William Meredith inspiring the hard working Tigers, with Harry Simkin the Tigers keeper little troubled during this half. The second half however saw Wednesfield up their game and Simkin was at the very top of his game to keep Wednesfield at bay, A superb strike from 20 yards however gave the Tigers keeper no chance, going in off the underside of the crossbar to bring Wednesfield level at full time. Extra time and the teams were still in deadlock thanks to a great one handed save by man of the match Harry Simkin. This meant Tigers had to endure the dreaded penalty shoot out for the first time, Tigers came out on top when Duncan Reilly and Sam Foreman converted their pens, with Wednesfield managing to score just one.

WYRLEY TIGERS U9’s – QUARTER FINAL
WYRLEY TIGERS 0 v 2 ASHMORE PARK RANGERS
After an epic last round Tigers knew that Ashmore would be difficult to get the better of in this Quarter final game, but It must be said Tigers were the better team during the first half of this match having 2 good opportunities to score in the first 10 minutes but failing to take them, the half finishing 0-0, Elliot Crook, Ben Southall and man of the match William Meredith working their socks off for the Tigers ably supported by Tom Peacock and Tom Rowlands in the Tigers defence. Ashmore however took the lead soon after the start of the second half and continued to but pressure on the Tigers goal, Their efforts rewarded with a second goal which won the game and passage to the semi finals.
