WE MEET AGAIN - Walsall Wood

WE MEET AGAIN – Walsall Wood

Walsall Wood made it into the Midland Combination Premier Division before Coleshill but after finishing bottom two years running they were relegated in the same year as Town got promoted, 1975. It was another couple of years before the two were in the same division, from 1978/79. They then did battle every year until 1992 when Wood moved to the Staffordshire Senior League. During that time Walsall Wood merged with Walsall Sportsco to become Walsall Borough. The name changed back again in time for the two to come together again for the 2006/07 and 2007/08 seasons, again in the Mid Com Prem and then they have been together again in the Alliance/MFL for the last two seasons!

Both teams are having a great season. Wood did really well in the FA Vase and are currently in 4th place with 22 wins from their 39 games. They have the tightest defence in the league having only conceded 36 goals, seven less than Coleshill but they don’t score many. Town have scored almost 50 goals more than Wood. With Walsall Wood surprisingly losing to Dunkirk recently, it means they can’t catch us but Saturday’s win over Long Eaton means they haven’t gone on holiday yet and will be a real test for Coleshill.

It points to a very close game with not many goals! A repeat of the 2-1 success at their place back in September will do very nicely!!
