Old Sils 4 Whitchurch 0

OLD Sils maintained their excellent home form with a convincing win over struggling Whitchurch.

Four different players got on the scoresheet as the hosts brushed aside their opponents and look to improve on the win with another victory tomorrow against West Brom.

Jon Mayo broke the deadlock with a well-placed short corner early on but there was no way through a stern away defence until after the break.

Max Levenger took advantage of a defensive mix-up to pass the ball to an unmarked Jamie Clapham who fired in the second of the day.

Levenger then set up Mike Thorpe for the third and captain Matt Fell rounded off the game with a flick into the roof of the net.

Blossomfield 1 Melton 3

BLOSSOMFIELD remain just one point above the bottom of Midlands Division One after conceding two late goals against league leaders Melton.

The hosts missed a number of chances to take the lead in the first half and were made to pay with a late flurry from the visitors.

Melton took the lead early in the second half from a penalty corner only for Bloss to instantly reply from the push when Craig Tiffany was on hand to convert an Eddie James cross.

But two late goals sealed their fate and left Bloss ruing their missed opportunities.

Barlaston 10 Yardley 0

YARDLEY have a week off to reflect on two miserable performances that have left them bottom of West Midlands Division Two.

After an 11-0 hammering a fortnight ago, Yardley suffered another demoralising 10-0 defeat away at Barlaston last week.

The visitors were 5-0 down at half time and things got work after the break when experienced defender Rob McGuigan was forced off ther ough injury.

A final onslaught put the result into double figures for the third time this season.

Chesterfield 1 Olton 2

TWO goals from Jack Mallet gave coach Harry Jawanda the perfect start to life at Grange Road.

The experienced coach joined Olton only last week and his arrival had an immediate impact as the visitors grabbed their second win of the season.

The opener came midway through the first half after some good pressing work from Simon Lynn and Mark Wilson. The latter intercepted the play in the Chesterfield 25 and then fed Mallett who fired past the helpless keeper.

Chesterfield levelled the scores straight after the break but Mallet secured the win midway through the half.
