Brakes through to the semi-final of the Birmingham Senior Cup

FOOTBALL: LEAMINGTON ended a run of five games without a win after coming from behind to beat to Stratford Town 2-1 and progress into the semi-final of the Birmingham Senior Cup.

After a fairly dull opening 20 minutes at the Phillips 66 Community Stadium on Tuesday evening, it was the visitors who opened the scoring through Will Tullock who beat Tony Breeden after being put through on goal.

Courtney Baker-Richardson had the best chance of the half for the Brakes when he saw his effort on goal pushed wide for a corner and he also came close with an acrobatic overhead kick which was wide of the target.

Chances came and went for the home side but the equaliser eventually came in the 81st minute when Jamie Hood headed home on his return to action.

Barely a minute had been played and Leamington had turned the game on its head by scoring what proved to be the winner, this time Baker-Richardson getting on target from a corner to sent Holleran’s side into the final four.

This Saturday Leamington return to Southern League Premier Division action as they look to end a run of five games without a league win against King’s Lynn Town.
