Shirley to face their local rivals

SHIRLEY Athletic pulled off a 3-0 win over Harborne Town in the Birmingham AFA Premier.

SHIRLEY Athletic pulled off a 3-0 win over Harborne Town in the Birmingham AFA Premier.

Matty Shaw gave Shirley the lead with a 30 yard plus volley.

Shirley looked a better side after the break and Matty Whitehouse increased the lead as Harborne tired.

Unselfish Joe Cole then created the chance for Mike Mountford to roll the ball home into an empty net for a third goal.

Shirley should have added further goals, Craig Wilson having one disallowed while man of the match Ben Ince missed out when his 35 yard effort just sailed over.

Shirley have a local derby on their hands when they travel to Silhill this Saturday at Sharmans Cross (2-30pm kick off).
