Easter Monday afternoon (21stApril 2014), Walsall Wood FC faced Continental Star at Dales Lane, and I think it’s fair to say that the lads from Walsall Wood trounced their Rushall hosts.
Bill Shaw kindly submitted the following match report – sorry for the delay, but This is the first chance I’ve had today to post the article.
A fifth win of the season over Continental Star that moved Wood up to seventh place, earning just four points from their last pair of home games will see them finish sixth…
Continental Star 0 v 3 Walsall Wood
An entertaining encounter in the April sunshine with Wood having to wait until the 26th minute to take the lead, when Joey Butlin hit a dipping drive from the right edge of the box.
Scott Coper had a superb volley ruled out by a ludicrous offside decision on 58 minutes, but Butlin muscled his way past a defender to run on and score in the 88th minute.
Right on time a lovely sidestep by Max Black in the centre of the box saw him make space to drill home number three to give the scoreline a more realistic look, after Wood had wasted a host of half chances as they threatened to run riot at times.
So it’s Shepshed Dynamo the visitors at Oak Park on Thursday night, as Wood look to avenge the opening day 1 – 0 defeat in Leicestershire.
Kick off 7.45 pm, don’t be late.
Thanks to Bill and for the report, and good luck to the lads facing Shepshed Dynamo on Thursday.
For The Good of the Wood!
