The young David Evans was off again on Wednesday night (2nd September 2015) to see the generally on-form Walsall Wood Under 18 side return from underdogs to make mincemeat out of Pelsall Villa Under 18s – he sent the following match report (or should be post mortem?)…

Pelsall Villa under 18s 2 v 6 Walsall Wood under 18s
Pelsall started this gripping encounter with greater determination and were quicker off the mark than Walsall Wood, scoring their first goal within a few minutes, and at half time they were deservedly leading by two goals to one.
The second half saw a re-energised and super-charged Walsall Wood bring their fine skills to the fore as they exerted constant pressure, accurate passing moves and off the ball running to play.
A veritable goal fest followed, in which Walsall Wood scored some good goals, missed a few, and capitalised on Pelsall’s frustration.
The large crowd of home and away supporters gave their vocal support and offered friendly advice where appropriate, and the final whistle blew, leaving Walsall Wood the clear winners.
Pelsall showed Walsall Wood that they are one of a few teams prepared to take the Wood on, and that the Wood dare not be complacent.
An entertaining match to watch and enjoy. Congratulations to both teams for their obvious competitive and sporting spirit shown this evening.
Walsall Wood FC run a number of youth teams that play high class, wonderfully competitive football, and they’re well worth going to see – and they’re also after new players, too, so if you’ve a budding Beckham in the family, why not get them down there?
The main team are back in action this afternoon when they take an away trip to square off against Coventry Sphinx. Kickoff 3pm…
