Droitwich Spa off to perfect start in new league

Droitwich Editorial 16th Aug, 2018   0

DROITWICH Spa got their West Midlands (Regional) League Division One campaign off to a flying start at the weekend with a resounding 4-0 victory at Sikh Hunters.

Saltmen captain Mike Seeley opened the scoring last Saturday after just four minutes when he headed home from Haydn Morris’ deep free-kick.

James Lemon doubled the lead five minutes into the second period when he was on hand to fire home from Andrew Crowther’s cross-cum-shot.

Sikh Hunters were then reduced to ten men after Matt Hall received a straight red card for kicking Lemon whilst he was on the floor.

Lemon got on the end of another Crowther cross to make it 3-0 before a superb 25-yard free-kick from Morris rounded off a pleasing afternoon’s work in the Black Country.

Spa joint-boss Wayne Oliver said: “To score four goals away from home with three different goalscorers was really pleasing, especially being our first game in a new league.

“It was a physical battle game but we tried to play the ball around as much as we possibly could to counter that.

“The physicality of this league is something we are not used to and we will expect more physical encounters as the season goes on.

“But we said to the lads on Monday that Saturday’s result will only be good if we can back it up this weekend.”

Spa will hope to make it two wins from two on Saturday when they make the trip to Gornal Athletic.
