Following Saturday’s home match against Kirby Muxloe the Young David Evans sent me the following match report, written by Bill Shaw:
A home League win at last for the Wood with a 3 – 1 victory over Leicestershire side Kirby Muxloe.
Fast starting Wood were a goal ahead after just 3 minutes, Andre Gonzales capitalising on a weak clearance to set up Assistant Manager Jamie Hawkins to fire into the roof of ther net. With 10 minutes gone Gonzales crossed from wide right & Joey Butlin made it 2 with a brave diving header.
Wood dominated the rest of the game but all they had to show for it was a classic headed goal by Anthony Juxon from a corner on the right on 78 minutes.
They conceeded a late goal but held out to win comfortably & move up to 15th place in the table.
There are more fireworks at Oak Park on Sunday 3rd November with a Bonfire Night Party, gates open at 4.00 PM with £3 per person entrance fee.
Come along & light up the Wood with us.
Thanks to Bill for the report. Next match is Walsall Wood vs Heath Hayes on 5th November, 7:45pm kickoff. Not sure if that’s a home or away match, will update with further details.
