FOOTBALL - Leamington come from behind to beat Stourbridge

Leamington Editorial 25th Oct, 2023   0

VETERAN striker Tyrone Barnett scored a second-half winner as Leamington came from behind to beat Stourbridge 2-1 and extend their unbeaten run at home to five matches.

Barnett’s goal on 64 minutes completed the turnaround after Henry Landers cancelled out Alfie Steward’s early strike in the first half at the Your Co-Op Community Stadium.

And the result means Leamington sit eighth in the Southern League Premier Central table, two points outside of the play-off places.

Stourbridge took the lead on four minutes when Steward lifted the ball over Brakes goalkeeper Callum Hawkins moments after Jack Edwards headed over at the other end.

However, the home side equalised on 15 minutes as Landers finished well past Stour keeper Charlie Price to bring the Brakes level.

And Paul Holleran’s men turned the game on its head just past the hour mark when Barnett tapped home a superb cross to score his second league goal of the season.

The Brakes saw out five minutes of injury time to end their three-game losing run in all competitions as their impressive home form continued with a hard-fought victory.

Leamington are next in action at home to AFC Telford United on Saturday, October 28 with kick-off at 3pm at the Your Co-Op Community Stadium.
