Lush secures points in Welland’s fine triumph

First published in Football

WELLAND maintained their Cheltenham League Division Five promotion challenge with a convincing 4-2 victory over Sherborne Harriers.

The hosts started brightly with repeated attempts on goal and the opener arrived on 20 minutes courtesy of a clearance from keeper Niall Hacking which Mark Holbrow guided into the net.

Sherborne responded and brought a stunning save from Hacking just before the half-time interval.

The loss of Rob Kelly to injury for the second-half unsettled Welland, who conceded two goals in quick succession before Lewis Dixon dropped into midfield and restored stability.

A James Lush corner was headed goalwards by Dixon and turned in by substitute Matt Tedds to make it 2-2.

Another pin-point Lush corner was met by Dixon’s head and the Welland lead was restored.

Dixon then hurled a long throw towards the far post and Lush nodded in to seal the points.
