Sky Blues overwhelm Brakes

There's a big gap between Step 5 of the non-league pyramid and the Championship and Leamington don't usually have to face the likes of Adebola, Scowcroft and McSheffrey at Harbury Lane. But Coventry City started with a team made up of ten first team regulars (the exception being the keeper) in tonight's Mayoral Cup contest at The New Windmill Ground in front of a crowd of 971.

Leamington started competitively with one shot sizzling past the Sky Blue's post and Leon Morgan almost scoring. But Sky Blues began to dominate and McSheffrey opened the scoring on 20 minutes, followed two minutes later by Andrew Morrell. Adebola made it 3-0 before the break.

With their eyes on next Monday's Polymac Services League Cup final at the Bescot Stadium, Brakes were depleted with Morton Titterton rested and Josh Blake booted and suited. Clunesie and Tommo did their best against overwhelming odds with Jon Adams the best player for the home side.

Sky Blues added two more after the break with the cup heading back to the three spires.
