Walsall Wood FC returned to form in blistering style on Saturday afternoon (20th September 2014) as they beat Dunkirk FC 4-1 away – the 4 up against Dunkirk thing seems a bit of a running theme, as last time Wood were away to the Nottingham boys, they crushed them 4-0.
Walsall Wood are a good team and an excellent, community-spirited institution. They need our support.
It seems roving sports correspondent Bill Shaw has not been in the best of health, so best wishes to him from myself and all the Wood fans who read his work here on the blog and elsewhere.
Here’s to a speedy recovery, old chap! Rooting for you.
Apologies for the delay but I was stuck in hospital from Thursday until 8.00pm last night so all I can tell you is that we won at Dunkirk on Saturday!
Dunkirk 1 v 4 Walsall Wood
After a delayed start due to the match officials being stuck in the horrendous A453 traffic, the game finally kicked off at 3.30.
The delay didn’t worry Wood who were 2 – 0 up at the end of the first half with goals from Joey Butlin and Craig Deakin giving them the lead.
The home side put up more of a show in the second half, when early on Zico Grinion reduced the arrears. However, 2 goals in the last 12 minutes from Leon Taylor made sure of the points for the Wood.
Wood host Coleshill Town on Saturday 27th, with Town sitting one place above Wood with two games in hand it should be an entertaining encounter.
The Staffs Vase game against Hednesford Town at the Wood has been pencilled in for Tuesday 21st October, so the away game at Westfields on that night has been postponed to a later date.
Sorry for the poor quality of this report, hopefully everything will be back to normal for next Saturday.

As ever, thanks to Bill for the report – always appreciated, and as I say, do get well soon – for The Good of the Wood!
