Walsall Wood 2 v 2 Dudley

On Wednesday evening 30th August 2017 Walsall Wood FC Under 18s played against Dudley in a floodlit football match at their Oak Park home ground.

The final score was a 2-2 draw and this was a fair result.

Dudley started the stronger side and put the Wood under considerable pressure initially. However, the home side displayed a maturity and confidence that grew after they were put one goal down by the well-worked and accurate soccer that Dudley showed.

Wood staged a comeback, and the range of skills that was used by all the players were a delight to spectate. Some interesting and innovative moves, a willingness to shoot at goal from long range, excellent corner kicks, fine goalkeeping and endeavour and drive by both sides was evident throughout the 90 minutes.

The game flowed well, and the referee took time to explain as and when. Excellent and mot appreciated by the players and spectators alike.

The evening’s proceedings were well supported by the excellent work of the officials both on and off the field of play

The game itself was most enjoyable to watch and attend, a credit to the players, their team managers and clubs, and I wish them continued success in all the matches they play.
