KYNOCH 1ST XI 2  LEAMINGTON 1ST XI 2

Leamington battled for a hard fought point at Kynoch in their DTZ Debenham Thorpe West Midlands Division 1 match on Saturday.

Boosted by the return of Nick Green, who made an immediate impact in midfield, Leamington exerted a lot of early pressure and eventually scored after a cool finish by Rob Kerr.

Leamington continued to press forward but were prevented from extending their lead by some poor finishing and desperate defending.

Kynoch felt hard done by towards the end of the half when they were only awarded a penalty corner instead of a penalty stroke following an infringement in the circle. This seemed to affect Leamington more than their opponents and Kynoch scored twice following some sloppy defending early in the 2nd half to take the lead.

Leamington pushed forward with Man of the Match Nick Green prominent as the game opened up and soon scored a deserved equaliser - Richard Greenslade finishing smartly from a through ball from Richard Gibson.

Although both sides created further chances, neither side could score the decisive goal and the game finished level at 2-2.

LEAMINGTON 2ND XI 3  DROITWICH 2ND XI 2

Leamington 2nd’s returned to winning ways in their latest DTZ Debenham Thorpe West Midlands Division 2 match at the weekend.

Leamington conspired to make life difficult for themselves as they gave visiting Droitwich an early lead after a bad mistake by Leamington keeper Craig Looney.

Leamington soon took control and steamed into a 3-1 lead through goals from Tim Briscoe and Brendan Farmer (2).

A penalty flick miss by Ross Antrobus could have proved costly as Droitwich fought back in the second half to make it 3-2. But keeper Looney managed to redeem himself by making several fine saves to ensure Leamington sealed a well deserved victory.
