A real hotchpotch of odds and ends from recent matches for League Winners Walsall Wood this week – it was a very busy few days with matches at Bescot (of all places) on Tuesday and Thursday, both cup finals; and yesterday (Saturday 19th May 2018) the semi final of the J.W. Hunt Cup against Wolverhampton Sporting.
Sadly, Walsall Wood lost to Wolves Sporting 3-1 – a gallery from that match has been supplied above from the Young David Evans.
Last Thursday evening 17th May 2018, Wood played Rushall Olympic in the final of the Walsall Senior Cup at Bescot, scoreline 2-2 at the final whistle, and frustratingly after a great, tense match the Wood went on to lose to the Pics on Penalties. A recorded live feed of the coverage of the penalty shoot-out from The-Wood.tv can be viewed here.
Professional footage, as ever from Russell Smith – normally of the wonderful The-Wood.tv but this time as Jumpers for Goalposts, his other local football channel. Confused? Try writing these posts…
On Tuesday evening 15th May 2018, The Woodmen were up against Coleshill Town in the final of Polymac Packaging cup at Bescot: Wood won that one, and therefore the Cup – final score 2-1. A recorded live feed of the celebration, unedited, again from Russell Smith’s wonderful The-Wood.TV can be seen here.
Finally, last Sunday 13th May 2018 saw a charity match at Oak Park in aid of the Ben Kinsella Trust in memory of Reagan Asbury, who was tragically lost to knife crime last autumn. David Evans attended and supplied a great gallery at the foot of this post. You can find out more about that match here.
Congratulations to the lads and all at Walsall Wood FC for a record breaking, very successful season, and commiserations for the losses. Thanks most of all from me to the young David Evans, Simon Evans and Russell Smith for keeping us informed – it’s hard graft but so much worth the effort.
