Moors keep up momentum ahead of tonight's Telford friendly after seeing off the Brakes

Ben Tyler 16th Jul, 2019

SOLIHULL Moors made it three wins out of three in pre-season, after winning by a third successive 3-1 scoreline away at Leamington.

Goals from Terry Hawkridge and Jordan Murphy handed Solihull the win, after an own goal had brought the Brakes level following Matty Stenson’s jaw-dropping opener.

Moors went close to opening the scoring from Terry Hawkridge’s free-kick early in the game, before Stenson opened the scoring with a show-stopping effort.

With goalkeeper Tony Breeden stranded from his goal line after making a clearance, the former-Brakes loanee half-volleyed the ball from 40 yards out to find the back of the net.

The lead was quickly wiped out on 25 minutes after suffering some misfortune, when a cross to the far post by Cieron Keane was turned into the back of the net by Harry Flowers to bring the Brakes level.

Breeden was then on hand to keep out Danny Wright to ensure the two sides were level going into half-time.

But just seven minutes after the restart, Hawkridge slammed a free-kick into the corner to regain the lead for Tim Flowers’ men.

Moors continued to show their class and dominated the remaining exchanges, going close to finding a third through Murphy’s shot into the ground that hit the bar.

Murphy did eventually find the net after latching onto Paul McCallum’s through ball and slotting home to round off the scoring.

A trip to AFC Telford tonight (Tuesday, 7.45pm) now awaits, prior to a trip to Northern Premier League Division One South East side Ilkeston Town on Saturday (3pm).
