David Evans has sent the following wonderful match report from last Tuesday evening’s match (15th August 2017) between Walsall Wood Under 18s and Wrens Nest Under 18s – and he liked what he saw.

The best bit is they team are looking for players, and applications are open!

If you’ve an under 18 kicking about the house making things untidy, and if they’re into football, why not get them out of the house on Thursday evenings to try out for Walsall Wood Under 18s who train at the Oak Park Active Living Centre from 6:30-8pm?

An excellent  performance by Walsall Wood Football Club Under 18s against Wrens Nest on Tuesday evening at Oak Park, where the  final score  was a two-all draw.

A crowd of a hundred or so were in fine voice to support the two teams and applaud good play – and they players responded by playing this match at full speed throughout.

A very early penalty put Walsall Wood in the lead and this spurred the visitors and home team alike. Excellent touchline marshalling and encouragement by both team managers was evident as was the eager, receptive responsive by the eager young players.

The Referee took time to explain decisions to players concerned and this aspect of the game was appreciated by all. A very creditable teaching facet of this under- 18 contest.

Very little impatience or any extravagant loose play was evident. Indeed, instead there was determination and good sporting challenge, accurate passing, long range shots on goal, high leaping from corner kicks, where confidence, endeavour and good team understanding characterised this match.

Final score WWFC Under 18s, two, Wrens Nest under 18s, two.

A fair result. A good performance.
