Lost 3 - 4 on penalties

Slyne With Hest

The curse of the manager and team of the month award didn't escape Wrens as they fell to their first defeat of the season in the 1st Round of the Lancashire Shield to Slyne with Hest on penalties after the game finished level after 90 minutes.

 

The match started promisingly enough though it was Slyne who opened the scoring on 10 minutes leaving Wrens to chase the game. The goals refused to come despite hitting the bar and having the ball cleared from the line, leading to the inclination that this wasn't going to be Wrens day. The half got even worse on 41 minutes as Slyne doubled their lead to give them a 2 - 0 half time lead.

 

The 2nd half started with Steve Creelman replacing Lee Tobin and 5 minutes later Oli Crolla replaced Alex Pickering. These substitutions were inspirational as Ben Seear pulled one back for Wrens on 56 minutes. This led to Wrens pushing forward in order to turn the game round and on 73 minutes Gary Pett made the scores level at 2 - 2 and give Wrens a fighting chance. Unfortunately neither side managed to find the winner and the game finished level leading to the inevitable penalties. Slyne ran out 4 - 3 victors with Chris and Danny Morris, as well as, Ben Seear netting Wrens 3 spot Kicks.

 

Next week sees us return to league action with a home match against Euxton Villa with a 3pm kick off.
