Congratulations to Walsall Wood FC…


Well done, lads. Image from the Walsall Wood Football Club Facebook page.

While I was busy fiddling with other stuff late last week, our local lads pulled off a wonderful thing on Thursday evening. Congratulations to Walsall Wood Football Club on winning the Midland Combination Premier Division Championship 2012-2013, and securing promotion.

It’s been a long haul but by all accounts the team have played very well this year, and I’m sure I speak for all of Walsall Wood and Brownhills in congratulating them and wishing them all the best for the next season.

Nice to have some good news for a change! Sorry I didn’t get this up sooner… My best wishes to Andy Roper, Nigel Watkins and all the chaps.

    Well done, the Wood ! My 82 years years have slipped away, and I am back, in imagination, having left Oak park, and wending my way home, along unmade Collins’s Lane, as we called it, avoiding the deep puddles left by the lorries, jubilation filling my heart as I recalled every significant moment of a glorious victory. Some things never change and football allegiance is one of them.
    Heartiest congratulations to The Wood officials, who have ‘worked their socks off” on behalf of the football club, worthy successors to George Mycock, Sid Salt and Arthur Wadey of half a century ago. Every success for the future from one happy exile.

    Hope you haven’t made the swans a target for the local yobbo’s … One was killed with a crossbow some years back on the canal in Brownhills.

    • I take it you mean this?

      Oh Edwina, don’t be silly.

      If yobs want to look for swans on the canal there are any number about. They aren’t scouring the net looking for video hints. They aren’t exactly low profile, either.

      On that basis I might as well give up sharing the beauty of anything in case it encourages someone to do something yobbish.

      You can go through life permanently looking at the dark, or towards the light. Year after year swans locally raise fine clutches on the canals here. What better chance to see and observe nature in action?


      • Further, I’d point out that I’ve never, ever showed recognisable locations of hares or badgers, for obvious reasons. But that’s a whole different ballgame.

    Hi Bob
    well done to the Wood! The trophy looks smart and I hope it stays there for many years to come.No wonder the Toucan is smiling! I think the whole village is ” mighty chuffed”!
