Walsall Wood FC returned to form in blistering style yesterday evening as they beat Dunkirk FC 4-0 away.

This takes the Woodmen up to 9th position..

Walsall Wood are a good team and an excellent, community-spirited institution. They need our support.

Bill Shaw submitted the following match report:

Hiya Bob,

Dunkirk 0 v 4 Walsall Wood.

Back to winning ways, a clinical, hard-working performance with a flattering scoreline. 10 days ago we made more chances but only won 1-0, but as they say ‘That’s football.’

Harry Harris returned from injury and suspension making his presence felt with 2 clinically taken goals in the 18th and 80th minutes. Sandwiched in between was a superbly finished goal by Max Black and Wood wrapped it up in the last minute when returning Michael Murray climbed highest to glance a header home off a defender, from a right wing corner.

It sets us up perfectly for Thursday 27th and the visit of Champions elect Tividale to the Wood in the quarter final of the Walsall Senior Cup, with the plum semi-final tie for the winners, a home draw with Rushall Olympic.

A Bescot Stadium final against Chasetown awaits the winners of that.

Bill Shaw.

As ever, thanks to Bill for the report – always appreciated – for The Good of the Wood!
