Also, a note from Bill Shaw:

Hiya Bob,

Sorry I haven’t been in contact earlier re: the Kidderminster game, whilst I’m improving slowly I’m not back to anything like my best yet, but here goes.

Walsall Wood 2 v 1 Kidderminster Harriers

From what I’ve been told it was a cracking game with both sides playing free flowing football, Joey Butlin continued on from last season to open the scoring in the first half, Luke Adams then added the second in the second half to put Wood in the driving seat.

An unfortunate clash of heads saw play delayed as one of the Kidderminster youngsters appeared to be badly injured, play did eventually continue with the visitors pulling a goal back with 10 minutes to go to make for an interesting last few minutes but Wood held out to record a victory.

With Harriers also playing up the A5 at Shrewsbury this was the Under 21 Academy squad, but as I said about the Pelsall game, you can only beat what is put in front of you.

So it’s off to Ellesmere Rangers on Saturday 1st August for the last friendly this term, with the long awaited season opener against Bardon Hill Sports a week later at Oak Park kick off 3.00 pm.

Bill Shaw

Cheers for that, Bill – and do get well soon. For the Good of the Wood!
