Walsall Wood U18s beaten by Rugby at Oak Park

Last Thursday evening (28th January 2016) the young David Evans attended the Walsall Wood Under 18s home match against Rugby –  David thought an insight into their game would be of interest to the football following readers.

There is great football of all kinds going on at Walsall Wood and it’s worth investigating for fans, parents and the football-curious everywhere.

HI Bob

It was 0 – 4 against The Wood when I had to leave the match, not too long before the final whistle.

Walsall Wood held Rugby in the first quarter of the match but then Rugby’s more accurate passing and interceptions, faster and collective breaking with the ball, proved to be the difference between the two sides

One of Rugby’s second-half goals, a super shot taken from a free kick would easily win shot of the season.

I think Rugby filmed the match which might be available to view

I have asked George Evangelou if he would send you a brief report direct. He is the trainer and club secretary


Thanks to David for an interesting report and insight into local youth football – after all, it is the future of the Woodmen!

For the good of the Wood!
