Home is sweet for Radar with fine six-goal rout of Martley
11:41am Tuesday 17th September 2013 in Football
MALVERN Radar’s first McDonald’s Worcester and District League Sunday Premier Division home game of the season saw them return to winning ways.
They defeated a young Martley Spurs side 6-0 although it took Radar 24 minutes to break a stubborn defence when Jack MacIntosh swung in a near-post corner for Lee Hooper to flick home.
Hooper latched onto a Louis Loader through-ball 10 minutes later and made no mistake in a one-on-one with the keeper.
After the break, Radar, taking advantage of the Victoria Park slope, continued to dominate but chances were squandered until Reece King headed in another MacIntosh corner.
They rang the changes but the impressive Harry Wickett’s corner was nodded in by Olly Lean five minutes from time.
Three minutes later, Will Underhill put Lee Mason through and he made no mistake before Lean scored his second in the last minute to conclude a convincing win.
Meanwhile, Powick drew 4-4 with New Barbourne in Division One with Stuart Harvey bagging two goals.
Graham Jones smashed a hat-trick in Foresters Arms’ 4-0 success at Alumni in Division Three.
Malvern Hills went straight to the top of the Saturday table with a 6-1 win over town rivals Malvern Vale.
The goals came from Matt McIntosh (3), Sean Gardener (2) and Matt Jacklin, while Rob Tyler created four of them.
Brian Lavell hit a hat-trick for Malvern Town Reserves, who won 5-2 at Worcester Anchors, as did Jon Murphy in Powick’s 3-1 home win over Arrow 2000.
In Sunday Division Five, Leigh and Bransford Badgers suffered their first defeat of the season, 4-1 at home to newcomers Hallow Reserves.
Badgers’ tireless running and endless work-rate lacked cohesion but the visiting keeper was the man-ofthe- match.
He saved a 12th-minute penalty from captain Mark Stubbs and another spotkick from Jacob Hooper on the half-hour mark.
Hallow led 2-0 at half-time but Badgers pulled a goal back 25 minutes from time through Nick Medakovic only to be hit by two more late strikes from the visitors.
