Coalville Town 2-0 Alvechurch

The Ravens picked up their first victory of the season with a 2-0 win over Alvechurch

Coalville Town gained their first victory of the season and a first win under Adam Stevens second tenure as manager as they beat newly promoted Alvechurch.

The visitors started the brightest and it took The Ravens 15 minutes to get into their stride. New signing Tim Berridge had the first chance for Coalville as his looping header was gathered by Matt Sargeant in Church’s goal. Kyle Bryant then made a superb goal line clearance to deny Danny O’Callaghn much to the Alvechurch man’s dismay.

Alvechurch then had a period of sustained pressure as their recent signing Trea Bertie hit a shot over from a tight angle and then home keeper Max Smith-Varnam made a great low down save to keep the scores level.

The Ravens best chance of the first period fell to Alex Dean as he hit his shot from wide on the half volley from a cross byTolani Omotola.

Moments after the break and Coalville took the lead. The impressive Tom McGlinchey intercepted a stray pass on the half way line and strode forward. He danced in to the box and as he went to beat the final defender he was tripped and referee Ritchie Watkins showed no hesitation in pointing to the spot. Andrew Wright took the responsibility for the penalty and he confidently stroked the ball home sending Sargeant the wrong way to give the Ravens the lead.

Two minutes later and Sargeant denied Coalville’s Joe Doyle-Charles a goal with a superb save. The ball fell to him on the edge of the box and his fierce effort was destined for the top corner but the keeper dived acrobatically and turned the ball behind for a corner.

Alvechurch came close to an equaliser but the woodwork came to Coalville’s rescue. The ball fell to Josh March in the penalty box and his magnificent effort hit the bar and cannoned away to safety.

Moments later Coalville put the result beyond doubt. McGlinchey played a ball into the corner and there looked to be no danger as defender Andy Parsons looked to shepherd the ball out, but Omotola nipped in and took the ball off his toe and drove into the box before sending his shot past the diving Sargeant and into the far corner to seal the three points.
