FOOTBALL - Earls held by Alcester in stalemate

Solihull Editorial 5th Oct, 2022   0

EARLSWOOD Town played out a hard fought goalless draw with Alcester Town to extend their unbeaten run to eight matches.

The Earls have already racked up over half of their entire points tally from last season as they were held to a fourth draw of the campaign at The Pavilions.

And the result means Earlswood sit sixth in the Midland Football League Division Two table having avoided defeat since the opening day of the season.

In a tight game against seventh-placed Alcester, the visitors had the better of the first-half chances as Earls debutant goalkeeper Tom Day saved Ricardo Richards’ header from close range.

And Odane Barnes should have put Alcester ahead when he raced through soon after only to casually poke the ball wide of the left post.

At the other end, Louis Bridges went close when his effort from the edge of the penalty area was tipped away by Alcester keeper Tom Walker.

Earlswood were the better side after the break and almost broke the deadlock when Harry Street’s audacious long range effort landed on the roof of the net after he spotted Walker off his line.

The Earls are next in action against Boldmere Sports and Social Falcons on Saturday, October 8 with kick-off at 3pm at Boldmere Sports and Social Club.
