WBAFC 2-2 St Helens

Whaley went a goal down midway through the half after a defensive error presented the visitors with an opportunity in what was a fairly even, if dull, first half where chances were otherwise few and far between.

Whaley pretty much dominated the play throughout the second half and eventually drew level through a Sutton penalty. The home side ultimately and deservedly took the lead late on after sustained pressure when Broome drove in from the left to fire a low left footer across the keeper and into the far corner. That looked to be that until the visitors, making a rare foray into the Whaley half, contrived a dubious penalty virtually in the last minute and completely against the run of play.

Although Egerton set-up boldly in an attempt to play out from the back they did look shaky in the first twenty minutes and perhaps Whaley will learn in future to pressure these situations and take more advantage when the chance arises.

Malpas 3-3 Whaley Bridge

Whaley come back from 3-1 down to level the game against their long-distance opposition.

Malpass looked extremely dangerous from the off with Neil Keuno virtually unplayable in his last game for Malpas before he joins Stockport County; he was always a constant threat. Whaley went one down to a Lloyd free kick for a foul on the edge of the box but soon equalised when Drayson’s cross was superbly headed back across goal and in by Leadbetter. Keuno lurking out left was gifted too much space; he beat two players and cut inside smashing his shot home to give the home side a 2-1 lead and with only minutes remaining the visitors displayed more naivety by losing possession cheaply just outside the box, two passes later Dickin converted. Having lost their only natural defender on the day, Toseland injured after 20 minutes, the visitors weren’t exactly doing themselves any favours!

Second half and Whaley’s management decided to throw caution to the wind, now playing three at the back and sensing a potential comeback it was Tattersall who yet again produced his trademark world class save to deny Keuno & that plus Bill Sutton’s sliding tackle to stop a Ben Parry opportunity kept Whaley in with a chance. Whaley were now going for it and if anything it was the home side who looked to be hanging on with the visitors firing in cross after cross but to no avail until a dynamite Gilbride free kick hit the top corner gave them hope at 3-2.

Time was running down when a Drayson clearance landed on the edge of Malpas’ box for Leadbetter to swivell and volley home for a deserved away point. Right at the death another great chance fell to Gilbride at the back post right but his shot was finger tip saved.

With only 6 first team players available today from last season and with Langford previously & now Toesland out with serious injuries August is going to be a tough month for Whaley. However, unexpected results are cropping up everywhere as most teams transition either as a consequence of the League’s significant restructuring or some like Whaley that need to refresh the squad, their squad average age today around 21.
