FOOTBALL - Knowle hammer Boldmere to move top

Solihull Editorial 11th Oct, 2021 Updated: 12th Oct, 2021   0

KNOWLE romped to a 4-0 win against Boldmere Sports and Social Falcons to move top of the Midland Football League Division Two table on goal difference.


Goals from Nathan Corry, Charlie Morris, Jay Payne and Kaine Williams secured an impressive win for the Robins who hardly put a foot wrong all afternoon at the Draintech Community Ground.


The result means they top the table ahead of Coton Green and Fairfield Villa on goal difference – having lost just one of their opening 10 league matches.


Knowle went ahead after just four minutes when Corry spectacularly hooked Ryan Andrews long ball forward into the net.


And just as the visitors thought they had a foothold in the match, a wonderful solo goal from Morris doubled the home side’s lead.


The hosts increased their advantage further before half-time when Payne unleashed a trademark strike to all but secure the points before the second period had even begun.


Boldmere opted to make three changes at the interval to try and change the flow of the game but were unable to break through a strong Knowle defence.


The away side registered just one shot on target in the entire match – which came in the third minute of added time.


And Knowle added some gloss to their victory with a fourth goal at the death when Williams ran on to a through ball for an easy finish.


Knowle manager Clive Seeley felt it was his side’s best performance of the season to date.


The Robins are next in action against Village First A in the Birmingham County Saturday Vase on Saturday, October 16 at Aston University Recreation Centre with kick-off at 2pm.
