Walsall Wood trounce Ellesmere Rangers 6-0!


Ellesmere Rangers ground, Beech Grove, is famous for it’s unusual dugouts. No shit. Image from Dovey1977.

Sorry to say Bill Shaw is still convalescing from his recent illness and was unable to attend yesterday’s (1st August 2015) away match at Ellesmere Rangers, which by all accounts was a bit of a stonker.

Bill kindly sent me the following message with some details, and pointed out that Walsall Wood FC are still in desperate need of some help in the kitchen…

Hiya Bob,

Still breaking the habit of a lifetime and being sensible by not going to football games, no information about the Ellesmere Rangers game other than the score, a 6–0 win for the Wood.

A hat trick from Joey Butlin and one each from Harry Harris, Luke Adams and Daniel Holgate completing the scoring and bringing to an end the friendlies for this term.

It’s the opening League game of the season next Saturday with Bardon Hill Sports the visitors to Oak Park, kick off 3.00 pm.

Now going back to my Perfichrome days in the 60’s can I use one of the best words I have ever heard can I make an ERJINT appeal again, for help in the kitchen, the earlier request has fallen on deaf ears and the situation is now looking desperate, so can someone out there please offer some assistance.

The appeal from June 25th, 2015 was as follows:

Is there any lady or gentleman out there aged 16 or over who would like to be involved in the ‘Wood phenomenon’? We are looking for someone to help in the kitchen on match days throughout the season which runs from Saturday August 8th to Saturday April 30th next yea. It’s mainly Saturday afternoon and Tuesday evening at present, initially on a voluntary basis, but that could change as the club moves forward.

It’s an opportunity to become an important part of the new community spirit being generated at Oak Park and have some fun in the process.

If you have a few hours to spare and think this is for you, either call into the club during opening hours or call Lynn on 07767 125582 for an informal chat.


Bill Shaw

Bill –  do get well soon, from myself and the blog readers. Take all the time you need, after all, it’s… For the Good of the Wood!
