There was no first team match for Walsall Wood FC yesterday, but as I noted here, the Reserves were playing their Cadbury Athletic counterparts at Oak Park.
The young David Evans has been greatly enjoying the Reserve’s prowess of late, and they’ve been doing well, making a great alternative to the more challenging period being endured by the main team.
David watched the Reserves win 2-1, and sent the following gallery and captions. He said:

Final score WWFC 2 Cadbury 1
A most enjoyable match to watch. Excellent encouragement from WWFC manager, as usual.
There’s always good footy at Walsall Wood, and it’s great to see the Reserves getting some attention. Thanks to David for the report!
