A draw for the Wood – but all eyes on the ‘Pics this Thursday

Walsall Wood FC were away at Rocester last night, and held the home team to a no score draw – Bill Shaw was there to witness the match. I suspect hearts and minds were mainly on the big home game this Thursday…

Bill sent this report:

Hiya Bob,

A point apiece from a game that struggled to rise above the mediocre for most of the 90 minutes.

Rocester 0 V 0 Walsall Wood.

Wood, fielding just 3 of Saturday’s line up started slowly and could have gone behind after just 4 minutes, Dan Brown touching the ball past returning keeper Dale Faultless but Shawn Boothe was quickly back to clear the danger. Leon Taylor put a header just wide on 12 minutes for Wood and that set the scene for a competitive encounter.

Wood had manager Mark Swann making his first start for a few years, he turned the clock back on occasions and looked comfortable all evening.

Both keepers made brave saves in an end to end game that could have gone either way.

So it’s the BIG one on Thursday now with Rushall Olympic the visitors, kick off 7.45 pm, it could be Wood’s last BIG night of the season, don’t be late.

Bill Shaw.

Thanks to Bill for the report – and best of luck to Walsall Wood against the pics.
