Match Report

 

The first game of the season and a good win but not quite as comfortable as the scoreline may suggest. Old Wulfs started slowly and before long went 0-1 down with Wednesbury's first attack of the game. This served as a good wake up call and before long a Jandu shot cannoned off the foot of a Wednesbury defender and a penalty stroke was awarded. Sam Aldersley stepped up and calmly slotted home into the top left corner. The pressure from Old Wulfs continued but we couldn't convert chances before half time.

The second half started far more promisingly for Old Wulfs with a good run from Tibble ending with a squared ball to Buckley who was there to dispatch. Wednesbury weren't giving in though and after an Old Wulfs free hit broke down they countered quickly and scored to make it 2-2. Again a goal seemed to wake up the home team and within a minute a defensive mistake allowed Jandu to latch on to the ball and promptly bury it in the bottom of the goal. The pressure continued to build on the Wednesbury goal and after a short corner Sam Aldersley found himself in space (whilst avoiding an equally eager Ryan) and found the top corner. The game was put to bed with a brilliant finish from Ed hole who managed to find the net from an impossible looking angle!

Special mentions today must go to Rob, Gareth, Andy and Sam Buckley who were all nominated for man of the match. The man of the match was Sam Aldersley with two vital goals and promising movement throughout the game.

A good start to the new season and an excellent confidence builder as we move on to the next friendlies before the start of the league campaign.
