Following Saturday’s away match at Gornal Athletic FC the Young David Evans submitted the following match report, written by Bill Shaw:
An encouraging performance in the heart of the Black Country with the win making it 3 leaugue victories on the trot with a record of 4 goals for & 0 against.
A goal one minute from time was enough to give Wood the 3 points, when Corey Currithers finished off a lovely flowing move involving Jamie Hawkins & Andre Gonzales. Wood finished with 10 men, playing the last 15 minutes without keeper Raj Gill, sent off for handling outside the box, but Swannie had used his crystal ball beforehand & Mark Wiggins was on the bench to step into the hot seat.
The sending off inspired The Woodmen and they totally dominated the last 15 minutes, deserving to take all 3 points with Wiggo a virtual spectator. The win only moved Wood up one place to 18th but with the visit of Kirby Muxloe on Saturday they could finally break their home jinx.
After the home game this Saturday (26th October 2013) Legends of the 50s & 60s will be at Walsall Wood FC reunion that starts at 7.30. Any former committee members, players or supporters are welcome to attend for what is hoped will be a wonderful evening of nostalgia.
If anyone has any old memorabilia or photographs please bring them along so that we may copy them for what is becoming a real talking point – ‘The Wood Wall of Fame’.
Thanks to Bill Shaw for the report.
Next fixture is against Kirby Muxloe, at Oak Park, next Saturday, 26th October 2013. Kickoff 3pm.
