Spa produce five star display

DROITWICH Spa produced their best performance of the season as they swept to a 5-1 victory over fellow strugglers Coton Green last Saturday.

James Ward and Nick Seabourne both struck twice while an own goal added to Green’s misery as Spa moved three points clear of the bottom of Division Two of the Midland Football League.

The match started in frenetic fashion as there were three goals scored in the opening seven minutes. The hosts bagged the first two as Seabourne got his side off the mark before Coton put the ball in the back of their own net.

The away side did make amends as they cut back the deficit as Droitwich failed to take a stranglehold on the game in the opening stages.

The contest evened out for the next 25 minutes before Spa notched up their third with a goal from Ward to give his side a 3-1 lead at half-time.

Droitwich quickly increased their advantage after the interval as Seabourne bagged his second. This goal all but sealed the win as Spa dominated the second period.

They then wrapped up the victory with a stunning strike from Ward, which delighted manager Wayne Oliver.

“We could have done some things a little better and tidier but overall we were pleased with the way we handled this game,” he said.

“We now have a difficult month ahead being asked to play four of the top six sides over the coming weeks.

“This will be a stern test and show if we are capably of reaching our first target of being out of the bottom three by Christmas starting this week with an away tie against Coventry United.

“Overall our first month has been rewarding and confidence is growing we hope that this long continues.”
