Andy Roper from Walsall Wood Football Club has been online drumming up support for the club’s upcoming match against Guernsey FC. Our small local team have been on a bit of a winning streak lately, and by all accounts this promises to be a bit of a David and Goliath epic, and I’m sure everyone in the Midlands is behind the boys from Up The Wood.
The club has been at the heart of the local community for decades, and long may it remain so. Why not pop down to Oak Park and check out the game? You’ll see better footy on that pitch then ever you will on TV.
Good luck, lads, from myself and the readers of the Brownhills Blog, both local and distant.
Remember lads, Bump it up, Bomper!

On Saturday the 2nd March 2013 at 3pm Walsall Wood FC entertain Guernsey FC at Oak Park, Walsall Wood in the Quarter Final of the FA Vase, entrance is £5 and £3 concessions.
The winners will be one game away from the final played at Wembley Stadium. The Wood are clearly representing Walsall and the Midlands in general and have had a fantastic journey so far beating teams from step 5 level which is a league higher and have done this away from home.
Guernsey FC are well supported and well financed in fact they have hired a private jet to get their players and officials to the game, they are the clear favourites but we have to make it difficult for them. As well as their paid footballing talent they also have a travelling support of around 200.
The Wood need your help to create a fantastic astmosphere and to get behind the home team. This is serious stuff for a club of our size and position we want to put our area, Walsall and local communities on the map.
Please spread the word ‘For the Good Of The Wood!’
If anyone knows where we could get help and assistance with Tannoy equipment for the day that would be fantastic we are expecting a large crowd.
As I have posted before donations are always welcomed.
Commercial Director, Walsall Wood FC.
