A last-minute change of venue with the game taking place at Colron Boys home ground on a wet and cold day. The game kicks off 25 minutes late. This hasn’t affected the boys concentration as they gradually take control of the game, Colron Boys keep pressing and creating a number of chances and nine minutes into the game Shavoy scores. A couple of minutes later Colron get a corner, Aiden takes the corner and floats a beautiful ball into the Walsall Wood (WW) penalty area and Ginge heads the ball into the Walsall Wood Saints goal, his second headed goal in consecutive games. The first half finishes 2-0 to Colron Boys.
The Second half follows a similar pattern to the first with CB dominating play and creating most of the chances. Credit must be given to the Saints as they didn’t give up and created a couple of chances that nearly caught Colron defence napping. After twenty minutes Colron Boys’ pressure exposed the Walsall Wood’s defence when Owen broke through and slotted the ball into the net. The match ends 3-0 to Colron Boys, another 3-0 win for Colron against a much-improved Walsall Wood Saints side.
Congratulations to Ryan (parents’ player) and Shavoy (man of the match) well played boys!
