The Badgers faced West Midlands Premier League opposition for the third time this season, with the visit of 6th placed Wednesfield to Silkmore Lane in the first round of the FA Vase. In the end, Brocton knocked their visitors out with relative ease in the second half, but testing conditions made for effective rather than flowing football.
With Hamilton and Burns cup-tied, the Badgers had an altered line up from Tuesday, but they started the match brightly and Edwards provided the lead on 7 minutes. With McMahon and Curtis linking well a cross came to Edwards in the box, who took his time but despatched the ball with a drive between the keeper’s legs for 1-0. Wednesfield were not deterred and the returning Leon Taylor, who left Brocton a matter of weeks earlier, haunted his old club. A defensive mix up for the Badgers saw Taylor wrestle the ball and utilising the wind, lobbed the on rushing Jenkins to equalise. The visitors started to take the challenge to Brocton with Jenkins forced into a couple of saves. However, the home side had their own chances with Shaan Stuart heading over from a Curtis cross from close range and Dan Lomas also striking from distance, making Wednesfield’s no 1 earn the right to stay in the tie.
As the teams changed direction, Brocton were at last playing with the wind. However, Wednesfield came out strong forcing Jenkins to use all of this stretching ability to reach a top corner bound shot and tip it round the post. Beyond this chance, the visitors found attacking opportunities limited and the Badgers we’re in the ascendancy. Both Hartshorne and Lomas went close again during a pinball moment in the box but couldn’t add to the tally. Just as the crowd were wondering whether it would be the Badgers day, Hartshorne broke the deadlock. Running into the box on the right, the diminutive striker took his time a place the ball coolly past the onrushing keeper for 2-1. This seemed to relax the home side as they encamped firmly in Wednesfield’s half and suddenly it was 3-1. A great corner from Curtis was well met from 5 yards out from the towering Wood to all but seal the match. In the dying embers of the match, the impressive Douglas got his just desserts for two impressive games since stepping up from the under 21’s. Experience and quality told from Paul McMahon as he laid a ball across to Douglas. The young flying full-back, showed composure and strength to finish with a side-foot under pressure for 4-1. Finishing the match with two generations of McMahon on the field and winning £825 for the match, a successful 3rd win out for three against West Mids Premier opposition for the Badgers.
