BWFC Over 50 & 60 Friendly Games Update
It’s been goals galore for the Birmingham over 50’s and over 40’s in the past two weeks, The over 50’s enjoyed a crushing 21-2 win over the newly formed Telford United, and the over 40’s enjoyed similar success whilst beating Sutton Town 12-5. The usual suspects, Dave Wright and Andrew Struthers were instrumental by scoring 15 of the over 50’s goals, whilst Ian ‘Razor’ Gough, had more assists than Arsenal’s Ozil and also helped himself to a hat trick. Thorp also bagged three quality strikes, and a rare David Castle strike completed the rout.
Not to be outdone the over 40’s had a similar tale to tell after a visit to Sutton Town, using the space excellently on a large pitch, Paul Murtagh’s 5 goals led the way, whilst four and three from Kev Reid and Andy Norris respectively completed their 12-5 win, Alan “showboat” Deakin and David Castle’s partnership at the back kept Sutton to just a handful of chances but for Sutton’s clinical finishing the score could have been even more emphatic. Sutton Town’s goalkeeper made some excellent saves, as he time and again he thwarted Norris and Reid, who had more shots than a student on freshers week, a late penalty miss by Castle meant as usual he had to get the drinks in!
