|Result||D 1 - 1|
This week we faced Lichfield 7ths who had beaten us 2-1 in the first half of the season. The game started and Lichfield immediately started pressing high to attempt to break down the Old Wulfs defence. However, like my many times this season, Chan and Arun stood strong and held of the skilful youngsters and when beaten, Steve Saunders was on hand to keep the game at 0-0. Eventually, their constant pressure paid off with the ball finding its way to their captain who made no mistake and finished well under pressure.
In the second half, Julian Myatt man marked their key player which allowed the midfield of Bob Preese and Josh Wilson to exploit the gaps in which were forming on the pitch. A quick break led to the ball being passed out to super veteran Mike Mann on the wing, who used his experience to beat the defender and cross the ball to Daniel Jandu who dispatched the ball passed the vulnerable keeper. Only another 30 needed to catch up with Martin’s record!
The game remained end to end, which was enjoyable from a neutral’s perspective but Wulfs had many chances to finish the game off but instead, in the typical Old Wulfs fashion, shared the points with their opposition.
