A BOXING Day win for Moors saw captain Junior English lead by example as he bagged a brace in a one-sided affair.

Solihull have done well at Rockingham Triangle with wins in the last two years and Moors continued that run at the new Steel Park.

The visitors dominated the first-half and produced six shots on target and a goal from the skipper on 20 minutes.

Town never pressed Solihull and apart from one or two isolated attacks were not in the game.

English got his second goal on 50 minutes, converting a Beswick cross, and Jordan Fitzpatrick scored against his former club on 63 minutes to seal the win for Solihull.

Moors chairman Nigel Collins said: “It was a superb performance, probably the best of the season.

“The result flattered Corby, they could have won by a bigger margin.

“The whole team gelled and we were worthy winners.”

Ryan Beswick made his first league appearance since April and Dean Bennett also returned to the starting eleven.

Beeson was replaced by Mullarkey at half time and Stuart Pierpiont limped off with a hamstring injury, to be replaced by Karl Broadhurst.

Moors, now in 14th place in the Blue Square Bet North, play Corby again, who are ninth, at home on New Year’s Day, KO 3pm.

Collins added: “Sunday will be an even more difficult game. Corby will be after revenge.

“It’s not easy to get two wins in a row and I’m sure our manager Marcus Bignot will make the players aware of that.

“Stuart will be out for two or three weeks with a hamstring tear, as will Dom Langdon. Phil Midworth will be available for selection.

“In 2012 we want to continue with our upsurge in form and continue up the table and have a top half of the table finish.”
