HANLEY Swan got back to winning ways with a comfortable 5-2 home success over Shurdington Rovers in Cheltenham League Division One.

Despite windy conditions Hanley had a couple of early chances with Tom Morris, Tiago Ribeiro, Ash Bloore, Josh Hughes and Cathal Mcternan causing problems.

But midway through the half Rovers broke and took the lead.

Hanley searched for the equaliser and a good run and pass from Ash Robinson found Morris who levelled.

Good defending from Chris Aston and Mark Amott kept Shurdington out.

Just before half-time Morris was brought down in the box and Bloore scored from the resulting penalty.

With the wind at their backs Morris and Bloore were denied by saves before Hanley were awarded another penalty for handball which Bloore converted.

Ribeiro fired a free-kick just over and Jackson McMullen thought he had scored but was controversially ruled offside.

Another good run and cross from Mcternan found Bloore at the far post and he made no mistake to seal his hat-trick, putting Hanley 4-1 up.

Shurdington pulled one back from the penalty spot after Matt Hoper was judged to have brought a player down in the box.

From the restart Tom Ward found Hoper who fired home to make it 5-2.host

Myles Murphy-Young and Ribeiro forced more late saves.
