Blakenhall 3  VS Rugby 0
[DR MARTEN'S MIDLANDS DIVISION]

Premier Division clubs Nuneaton Borough and Atherstone United and Midland Division club Racing Warwick had no matches at the weekend. Bedworth United, also in the Midland Division, were scheduled to play Evesham, but the match at Bedworth Oval was postponed through a waterlogged pitch.

The only local team in action was VS Rugby, who must wish their match too had been a victim of the weather.

They went down 3-0 at Blakenall after being a goal down at the interval.

Yet the scoreline did not reflect Rugby’s part in the match. The opening goal was the result of quick thinking at a free-kick. The set piece was quickly taken and the ball reached striker Jason Rhodes who scored with a low drive.

Rugby should have draw level in the first half however when Ashley Warner cut the ball back for Brian Agar, but the new man, signed from Racing Warwick, blazed over the bar.

John Muir extended the lead two minutes into the second half, but Rugby still had a chance to get back into the match when Warner dribbled around the goalkeeper only to shoot over the empty net.

Rhodes sealed the victory four minutes from the end with a fierce shot into the roof of the net after a corner kick was partially cleared.
