Following Saturday’s away match against Coleshill, our footie correspondent (!) Bill Shaw battled ill health to send me the following game report – for which I’m most grateful:
Coleshill Town versus Walsall Wood, Saturday 2nd November.
Wood’s first no goal draw of the season, a debut for keeper Andy Hughes & new boy Danny Smith.
The pitch wasn’t conducive to good football & whenever the ball left the ground the gusting wind made things a lottery. Chances were few & far between with Wood having the better of things with Man of the match Andrew Juxon powering a header off the bar late on that would have given Wood the win their battling performance deserved.
It’s League Cup action at Oak Park tomorrow, Tuesday 5th November with Heath Hayes. Kick off 7:45pm.
Thanks to Bill for the report – always appreciated, particularly by overseas readers and those in more remote climes (like, for instance, Scarborough.)
Andy Roper Sent the following message and snap of the fireworks do yesterday at Oak Park:
A tremendous turn out from the community! Everyone had a great time, plenty to eat and drink.
The bonfire was a real success followed by a fabulous firework display by Fantazia Pyrotechnics Ltd.
This was a risk for The Wood but looking forward to setting next years event up having such a positive outcome on the night
A big thanks to all our volunteers who assisted.
For the Good to the Wood!
