A difficult game, in difficult playing conditions, for Woodbank Blacks.
The 3rd game of the season against Middleton and a much improved Middleton team which battled well on a muddy pitch.
The game saw an early goal from Tom
Nally in the 5th minute. The goal was one of his trade mark goals after a great through ball from Jack Langton
Woodbank tried to continue to play football in difficult playing conditions but at times became literally stuck in the Mud.
Middleton also had time during the game, where they also put the Blacks under pressure, but inform Dylan Chilton kept another clean sheet and a well-disciplined defence seems to becoming stronger by the game.
picked up man of the match not just for this game but for his consistent performances throughout the season.
Lewis Greenhaugh revelled in the mud with Lewis Ashton
trying to play the right balls.
Woodbanks second goal came with Jack Langton
setting up Amaan Sadiq
(The Little wizard) with a superb cross for Amaan to head home from close range with 2 minutes left on the clock.
Hard work paid off in the end with a hard fought victory and a feeling that there is a lot more to come from the Black’s in the 2nd half of the season.
Good job we have extra training over Xmas
