Winning ways continue

Leamington continued their good run with a 2-1 victory at the New Windmill Ground over moneybags team Brackley Town in front of a good mid-week crowd of 503 on a wet night.

Brackley certainly showed some pace and both sides had their chances in the first half, but it was 0-0 at the break. Play was often halted by the fussy referee who showed one of the Brackley players a yellow card as the teams went to the dressing room.

Luke Corbett unleashed an absolute cannon ball of a shot on 65 minutes at the Harbury Lane end to put Brakes ahead. It is one of the best goals I have seen at the NWG and provoked a chant of 'Where were you when Corbett scored?' from the Harbury Lane end.

Richard Batchelor then put the Brakes 2-0 ahead with an emphatic strike. Brackley managed to score a consolation goal in the dying minutes, but never looked like securing the 2-2 draw they got in the recent FA Cup match.

Jacko had a bit of an off night, but I was impressed by the new signing from Hinckley, Stephan Morley, who came on as a sub put in an instinctive shot from distance that troubled the Brackley keeper. We also saw some more of the new signing from Canvey Island, James Rowe.

Hi Wyn

I'm going to the Chesham vs Leamington game on Oct 19th in the unlikely event you want to make your way down the M40 for it? If so would be very glad to buy you a pint.

That would be good, but I don't think I can make that one.
