Shirley ready for wake up call

Old Nortonians A - 0 Shirley Athletic 1

Old Nortonians A - 0 Shirley Athletic 1

UNBEATEN Shirley go head-to-head with local rivals Wake Green tomorrow high on confidence after an impressive start to the season.

Last weekend an early goal from Simon Jamieson saw the current holders move into round three of the AFA Senior Cup at the expense of Division Two side Old Nortonians.

Jamieson headed in a Mike Mountford corner to open the scores early on but the hosts fought their way back into the game and were unlucky not to equalise.

Ben Ince had a late free kick saved for Shirley and Jarzinho Nelson missed a last minute sitter to wrap up the game.

But the visitors held out to record the win and stretch their unbeaten run to four games.
