Easy for Church
6:10pm Wednesday 23rd October 2013 in Sport
ALVECHURCH booked a trip to Leicester side Oadby in the FA Vase Second Round on Saturday, November 16 after they battered West Midland League side Bartley Green 7-0 this week.
Joe Wright led the scoring spree with a hat-trick while Jamie Spencer struck two more with Julian Triana and Karl Fellows completing the rout.
Church boss Dean Holtham declared: “It should have been 27 goals as we missed so many chances.
“They hardly got into our half at all in the second period.
“It was a shame for Bartley Green, because they are nice people and I hope they can turn things around.
“They have a very young side, but they kept on going to the very end!”
Holtham had to play his own son Mitch in goal following an injury to regular shotstopper Liam Maher.
They are also lost Will Corkell through injury and both players are already major doubts for this week’s Midland Alliance game against struggling Gornal Athletic at Lye Meadow.
