Holtham calls for Church success
5:00pm Thursday 21st March 2013 in Sport
MANAGER Dean Holtham wants more consistency from his Alvechurch side.
The Churchmen have been up and down with some contrasting results in the Midland Alliance over the last month, which has left them firmly cemented in mid-table.
But they got back on track last Thursday by defeating Boldmere St Michaels 3-2 thanks to a brace for Jamie Spencer and one for Jazz Luckie.
With Saturday’s clash against Heath Hayes called off, they had little chance to build on the win.
Holtham said: “I wasn’t happy as I rushed all the way back from holiday to find the game was off because of a waterlogged pitch.
“It can’t be helped but we could have done with the game being on because we’re looking for a inconsistent at the moment.
“You get with young players, ups and downs.
“If we had been a bit more consistent then we could have been near the top two but it’s just one of those things.”
It’s another big week for the Lye Meadow outfit in league and cup.
They defeated West Midlands Premier side Alvechurch 3-0 to book their place in the Worcestershire Senior Urn semi-final.
Jazz Luckie bagged a brace and Omari Sterling-James scored from the spot.
The game had been moved from Bewdley's ground to Lye Meadow at short notice after on Tuesday afternoon because their pitch was waterlogged.
Alvechurch will be looking to avenge their final defeat at Aggborough last season, although that was a different side to the one playing for the club now.
They have also proven to be a fine knockout side, after wins over Halesowen Town and Wolverhampton Wanderers in the Birmingham FA Senior Cup.
Alvechurch then face another Worcestershire derby at second-placed Stourport Swifts in the league (3pm ko).
