Wednesbury were rarely threatened in a comfortably won friendly this afternoon. With money very tight this week, I decided to stay local and cheap. My plan was to go to Shenstone but athe the last minute noticed they had pulled out of their game so headed to my back up at Wolverhampton Uni Walsall campus between the two Birmingham AFA sides.
This game though was on the 3g pitch which has a decent space for standing along one side. The first half saw a fairly tight half but Athletic in the white always looked comfortable. Their only goal came from the penalty spot on 32 minutes, a easy low shot saw them take the lead. There was a very low attendance with just 5 watching this including two grandparents who were watching their grandaughter instead of the game.
The second half was a better affair with Athletic by far the stronger. It was 2-0, from a move down the middle, charging towards the box, sidestepped the defender before passing into the bottom corner. GSOB”s keeper made some smart saves to keep them in it but it was not to be as in the dying moments a corner was met by a diving header.
