Tuesday evening (26th November 2013), Walsall Wood F.C. played Boldmere St. Michaels at home, and aced yet another resounding and well-deserved win. They’ve been playing very well of late, and the whole community is proud of the Woodmen.
Bill Shaw submitted the following match report via David Evans:
WalsallWood 3 v 0 Boldmere St Michaels.
Arguably our best performance of the season, with quite a few players showing the Mikes that they were wrong to let them go, none more so than Jux with a superb all round display.
The visitors arrived at the Wood on a 12 match unbeaten run that had taken them up to 3rd in the League (just 3 points off the top), but they were comprehensively beaten by a superb 5 star all round display by an absolutely rampant Wood side who took their own unbeaten League run up to 6.
Man of the Match Anthony Juxon opened the scoring on 10 minutes with a thumping header, Harry Harris ended his recent goal drought on 24 minutes with a 20 yard piledriver, courtesy of good work by Lewis Taylor Boyce & Ahmet Bilgimer. Bilgimer collected a suicidal back pass on 79 minutes before rounding the stranded keeper to score from an almost impossible angle rounding off his amazing non stop performance, putting the game beyond the high flying visitors.
Wood are now up to 13th place, only 5 points off 7th, with the injury list diminishing by the day & Craig Deakin back from the States on Monday. Things are looking up for the Alliance new boys. It’s away to 4th placed Quorn on Saturday (without suspended skipper Lee Stretton), before Tuesday night sees us down the road at Lichfield City in a cup game.
Regrettably there are no home games now for the Wood until they take on Continental Star on Boxing Day
Thanks to Bill and David for the report – always appreciated – for The Good of the Wood!
