Droitwich Spa continue fine start in their new league

Droitwich Editorial 23rd Aug, 2018   0

DROITWICH Spa continued their fine start to life in West Midlands (Regional) League Division One with a 2-0 victory at Gornal Athletic to maintain their 100 per cent winning record.

The Saltmen made it two wins from two last Saturday, thanks to goals from James Lemon and Curtis Townley in each half.

Victory moved Spa up to fourth in the table but Oliver admitted the performance was far from great.

“It was a very scrappy affair,” he said.

“We got the goals either side of half-time which took the pressure off us a little but it was not a vintage performance from ourselves.

“At the end of the day, though, you still get the same return whether you win in style or win ugly.

“We want points on the board and then we will assess things until ten games have passed and everything evens itself out.”

Spa face a tough test on Saturday when they make the trip to Darlaston Town who have won all three of their opening fixtures.

The Saltmen then welcome Old Wulfrunians to Walshes Meadow, home of Stourport Swifts, for their first home fixture of the season on Bank Holiday Monday.

“Darlaston will be a different test for us and it will show har far we have come or how far we’ve got to go to live with sides in this division,” Oliver added.

“Regardless of the result we will still have a game in hand on them so we’re not worrying about that.

“We had some early season issues at home last season so we want to address that quickly so we can get get the points on the board.”
