With the commencement of the 2014/14 season, I’m happy to welcome back regular match reports from top Walsall Wood footy correspondent Bill Shaw here on the Brownhills Blog, with this top account of recent friendlies.
Walsall Wood Football Club are a top local side with a big-hearted faithful who know how to have a great time supporting their lads, and welcome all comers to come enjoy great local soccer. The boys from The Wood have been at the heart of the local community for a century or more, so please do go check out a match or two if you’re curious.
I guarantee you’ll have more fun cheering on the local chaps than you ever will watching the over-priced prima donnas on TV…
I know many of you lot love the match reports and news from Oak Park, and it’s great to be able to share them: I thank Bill Shaw profusely – he’s a top bloke.
Well it’s 3 games down, and 3 wins, a pair of goals from Drew Aiton and one each for Joey Butlin and Joe Price saw Wood win comfortably 4 – 0 against Willenhall Town Last Saturday (5th July 2014).
A late change of plan on Tuesday last saw Wood taking on Burntwood Town before goals from Tom Evans and a brace each from Harry Harris, Joey Butlin & Drew Aiton secured a 7 – 1 win.
It was another win yesterday at Coventry Copsewood with second half goals from Drew Aiton, Leon Taylor and Tom Evans finally overcoming a spirited Coventry side to win 3 – 1.
It’s the first of the home friendlies on Tuesday night when Hednesford visit the new look Oak Park, a surprise addition to the Hednesford side will be Lewis Taylor Boyce, who after moving to Tividale signed for Hednesford last week, so an early return for Boycie. Kick off is 7.45, so don’t be late!
Cheers old chap. For the good of The Wood!
