Bill Shaw submitted the following match report:
Walsall Wood 0 v 2 Tividale
Wood failed to score for the first time in 6 friendly matches, falling to goals from Chris Field in the 32nd minute and then livewire striker Danny Holgate in the 57th minute.
Tividale thoroughly deserved the victory and looked a far better side than Rushall Olympic who were beaten 3 days earlier. Wood huffed and puffed but had no answer to the towering Tividale defence.
Wood take on Sporting Khalsa at Noose Lane, Willenhall on Saturday and then entertain Romulus on TUESDAY 29th, not Monday as originally reported.
The league season starts on Saturday 2nd August, Quorn the visitors to Oak Park, Tipton Town come calling on Tuesday 5th before Wood’s first away game in the newly formed Midland League Ltd., sees them visit Alvechurch.
Walsall Wood F.C. As ever, thanks to Bill for the report – always appreciated – for The Good of the Wood!
