Even the presence of England under-21 goalkeeper Jack Butland could not prevent Leamington inflicting a 2-1 defeat on Birmingham City in the Birmingham Senior Cup at the New Windmill Ground last night.
The match was played at a fast and furious pace but Leamington more than held their own. They were therefore rather unfortunate to go behind on 41 minutes after a goalkeeping error by Lee Evans let Blues in.
However, Asa Charlton levelled the score on 64 minutes and then substitute Luke Corbett put the home side ahead.
Referee Marc Perry had a good game.
