Happy Valley becomes more cheerful for Brakes

Leamington initially went 1-0 down to Rugby Town at Butlin Road this afternoon in a ground full of supporters wearing the gold and black of the Brakes in the crowd of 688. The egg chasers went 1-0 ahead after five minutes when they took advantage of a poor clearance by keeper Chris Kiely. However, it once again became a Happy Valley for the visiting side when Mark Bellingham and Marcus Jackson scored to make it 2-1 at the break.

In the second half, Bello scored a second goal on 81 minutes to seal the win. On 90 minutes winger James Husband made it 4-1 for a convincing win over the local rivals.
Leamington are now 5th in the Zamaretto Premiership, occupying the play off place which the more ambitious fans see as a realistic objective.
