Rushall Olympic 6 Beechdale Juniors 1
Beechdale seemed a little more composed in comparison to their game against Rushall earlier on in the season.
Holding a great back line, Rushall found it difficult to break been given the flag on a few attempts. Joel Chapman, recently raising his game, found a great hole for Reece Nunne to strike and net the first for the Pics with a great individual effort.
Lucas Fallon in the rear guard picked out Tom Day, who netted the second for Rushall with a composed strike, taking the game to half time.
Rushall on the march were eager to get started. Striker Jack Kemp netted the Pics’ third with an eagerly awaited first goal.
Lucas Fallon pushed up field and came close with another effort, before Jack Kemp found his second.
Lucas Fallon netted the fifth when he skilled his way around Beechdale’s impeccable defence and Jack Kemp netted his hat trick.
It was a reasonable result for the Pics, but there will be more work in training to keep the discipline.
Beechdale deserve a pat on the back for gallant effort and a well-played first half.

Rushall Olympic 0 Pelsall Villa Colts 1
A great morning for this derby clash. The Pics suffered a heavy defeat last time to the Lions and were out to set the record straight.
Fielding a strong squad, Pelsall rained wave after wave of attacks on the Pics, but gallant defending kept the Lions tamed in the first half going into the break 0-0.
After the break, a couple of chances fell to the young Pics who were unable to punish Pelsall.
Again, having the upper hand, Pelsall seemed a little more physical and were able to convert a chance, which left Rushall trailing.
Fantastic work rates of Jack Hunt, Joel Chapman, Ben Lillie, Lucas Fallon and Reece Nunne outfield with the keeper Harvey Paget all contenders for man of the match.
The match finished at 0-1 to the Lions, but this was an improved performance for Rushall against top contenders Pelsall whom we wish well for contesting the league.

Rushall Olympic 5 Holy Name Celts 0
Division 2 top flyers Holy Name was welcomed too the Pics training ground at Elmwood for this friendly as both squads had an open day. Firstly, a massive welcome to Jack Kemp, Rushall’s new signing and a debut start.
Rushall settled quickly in the first half a free kick awarded, the captain Kyer Russell ensured they took the lead. The second fell to Kyer also with a deflected shot. Very few chances were given to the Celts as the defence and midfield kept it tight throughout. Reagan Palethorpe came up trumps for the Pics with another outstanding take leaving the Celts trailing by three into the break.
Lucas Fallon added to the tally finishing a 3 pass rally starting from the keeper. Fluid football from Rushall and a quality work rate from Nial Rolinson ensured the Celts never gained control of the ball. Reece Nunne battling through the mid fields created a chance scoring a great goal to finish.
Credit goes to both teams for a clean, physical, yet inspiring game of football.
Rushall Olympic wish all the very best to Holy Name in their continuing League battle.
