Anslow sparkles for 7 UP

Good run continues with 7th straight League win.

A very good all round team performance to continue our remarkable league form.

Alvechurch started the game brightly, no doubt full of confidence after defeating Basford last time out.
For the 1st 10 minutes or so they pressed us back but without creating any clear cut chances.
We then started to get into the game and took the lead on 20 minutes when a neat one/two between James Spray and Richard Anslow led to the latter calmly slotting home.

2 minutes later we needed to reshuffle our defence when Damian Whitcombe had to go off with a groin injury, being replaced by Reece Shilvock.
This didn't unsettle us and we continued to press forward and create some half chances.
Richard Anslow shot just wide, and then good interplay between Tom Overfield and Simon Williams saw Simon's shot go agonisingly wide.

Into the 2nd half and we really turned on a super performance dominating the game and giving Alvechurch very little opportunity to hurt us.

We doubled our lead on 49 minutes with a clear penalty following a foul on Richard Anslow, who dusted himself down and calmly slotted the ball home.

We scored again on 59 minutes when a well flighted corner from Tom Overfield was headed home at the far post by captain Ben Jevons. It was now just a matter of how many we would score and on 79 minutes we got our 4th and final goal - a hat trick for Richard Anslow who converted another good cross by Tom Overfield at the far post.

An excellent all round performance against a decent Alvechurch side who we never let get into the game. This was evidenced by our keeper Damien Stevens only having to make 2 saves of any note in the game, one in each half.

We have a tough run of games coming up starting with Coventry Sphinx away next Saturday.

With the spirit in the squad at the moment we fear no one.
