Leamington beat Merthyr Tydfil 5-3 this evening at The New Windmill Ground in front of a depleted crowd of 417. Centre back Gary Knight scored the first two goals and Luke Corbett made it 3-0 just before half time.
The Martyrs dominated the opening phase of the second half and scored through Griffiths. Luke Corbett then scored his second with a superb header. Matt Lewis then opened his account with the club to make it 5-1.
New signing from Walsall, the aptly named Charlton Davies, was brought on. Merthyr then scored a second and in the 94th minute the referee awarded them a penalty to make the final scoreline 5-3.
