As well as winning 5-3 striker Ryan Beswick also scored the first ever league hat trick for the club.

Solihull got off to a perfect start with Beswick scoring on five minutes and again on 43 minutes, to give Moors a two goal cushion.

In the second half, Gainsborough showed why they are play off contenders and scored on 47 minutes when Luke Waterfall pulled a goal back.

However Beswick then stood up and took the penalty to clinch his hat trick.

Club chairman Nigel Collins said: “I am very pleased with the way the game went.

“I’m a bit disappointed we gave away the late goals but on the whole I am very pleased.”

The team is now looking forward to taking its winning streak into the next two games against Blue Square North basement boys Eastwood Town this Saturday and league leaders Hyde the following week.

“We are looking forward to the next two games,” said Collins.

“Although Eastwood are struggling at the bottom of the league, nothing is a given and as always it’s anyone’s game.

“The game against Hyde will be a challenge, it will an interesting one.”
