' Kewford’s'40th'anniversary' TOURNAMENT'DATE' ANNOUNCED' ' ' ' ' ' ' ' '

Wolves'night'out'–'Great' time'had'by'all.' ' nd

On"the"2 "January"several"‘lucky’"people"were"given"a" box" for" the" night" at" Wolverhampton" Wanderers" as" they" hosted" Brentford" in" a" Championship" league" match.""Wolves"went"into"the"game"top"of"the"league" and"unbeaten"since"1980"(or"at"least"that’s"what"I"keep" hearing"lol)"and"Brentford"were"also"on"a"good"run"so" a" close" match" was" anticipated." " That" couldn’t" have" been"further"from"the"truth"as"Wolves"dominated"the" game" from" start" to" finish" and" how" it" was" 0E0" at" half" time" no" one" will" ever" know" but" in" the" second" half" Wolves" scored" 3" unanswered" goals" and" could" have" had"more,"winning"the"match"3E0"and"looking"like"they" are"going"to"gain"promotion." " We"thoroughly"enjoyed"the"night"with"good"food"and" Great" company," the" lucky" people" were" –" Jane" Smith," Rhys" Edwards," Ian" Taylor," Paul" Bradley," Rich" Shelley," Phil"Hulme"and"myself"(I"just"went"for"the"food!)." " Many" Thanks" to" the" Wolves" Academy" and" their" host" Jack"who"is"the"Head"Scout"for"mini"soccer"age"groups" in"the"midlands!"
