FOOTBALL - Knowle put seven past Inkberrow to extend winning run

MATTHEW Seeley branded his players ‘immense’ after Knowle romped to a 7-0 win against Inkberrow to secure a 12th successive victory in all competitions.

Tom Craine and Jay Rendell both struck twice with Toby Scott, Lewis Clarke and Adam Bourn all on target at the Draintech Community Ground.

The result means Knowle lead the Midland Football League Division Two table by seven points with boss Seeley pleased by his side’s ruthlessness in the second half.

Seeley said: “It was an immense performance we just lacked that ruthlessness up front, to only go into the break two-nil up was half disappointing.

“It could have been five or six at half time but the football we played on a wet, soft, pitch was a great advertisement for the league.

“We blew them away in the second half with a clinical and ruthless performance, it was everything we asked for.

“We’re immensely fit, full credit to the lads, to blow a team of Inkberrow’s stature away on a heavy pitch is credit to them, the players are immense.”

Knowle took the lead after just six minutes as Scott turned home the rebound after Rendell’s initial effort was blocked.

Craine doubled Knowle’s advantage six minutes later with the Robins somehow unable to add to their lead before the break despite registering 16 shots on target in the first half.

The home side eventually put the game to bed on 50 minutes when Clarke headed home Dylon Bennett’s corner.

And Rendell then scored two goals in the space of four minutes, first converting Bourn’s pass before then finishing off another flowing move.

Craine scored his second of the game from the penalty spot on 73 minutes after Liam O’Donnell drew a foul in the box.

And Bourn completed the scoring with four minutes left to play to round off a stunning team performance.

Knowle are next in action away at Redditch Borough on Saturday, November 11 with kick-off at 2pm at Cherry Tree Walk.
