3-1 win sequence broken

Leamington have won their last three matches 3-1, but they broke the sequence at the New Windmill Ground this afternoon when they beat Oldbury Town 4-1, the match ball being sponsored on behalf of my wife Maggie to celebrate her birthday today.

Brakes dominated the opening minutes and James Husband put them ahead on three minutes. 'Clunsie' (Martin Thompson) made it 2-0 on 11 minutes and then Ben Mackey burst through to score a superb goal and make it 3-0 after 18 minutes.

Meanwhile, foul mouthed manager Morton Bartleet was abusing the lino and referee and was lucky not to be sent off.

Brakes then took their foot off the accelerator and Oldbury got back into the game with a soft goal scored from a free kick on 33 minutes, Leamington leaving no one on the line.

Oldbury came back into the game in the second half, often physically, but referee Harris often preferred a talking to over a yellow card. Eventually, Oldbury's No.15 shirt got a second yellow and went off to derisive cheers from the crowd of 583. Brakes finished the game off on 86 minutes with a strike from substitute Tom Bates.

Video of the match can be seen here, but be warned that the cameraman does not have a steady hand and he seems more interested in the fans than the game:
