FOOTBALL - Racers beat Whitchurch to maintain second place

Leamington Editorial 30th Jan, 2023   0

JOSH Parsons scored twice as Racing Club Warwick eased to a sixth consecutive home win with a 2-0 victory against Whitchurch Alport.

Parsons struck twice in the second period at Townsend Meadow to seal the points for Warwick and avenge their 5-2 defeat against the same opponents earlier this season.

The result means Warwick remain second in the Midland Football League Premier Division table on goal difference.

A cagey first half ensued as Racers striker Kory Burke saw his header well-saved by Jack Sheward in the Whitchurch goal before Dan Crane saved from Alex Hughes at the other end.

However, Parsons broke the deadlock on 55 minutes when he headed in from close range after his initial header was saved by Sheward back into his path.

And Parsons grabbed his second of the game on 70 minutes with a fine effort into the corner after Callum Rudd’s long throw was flicked on by Burke.

Crane kept Warwick’s two-goal lead intact when he saved Jordan Evans’ free-kick before Junior Brown missed an open goal as Racing comfortably saw out the final few minutes to take the points.

Warwick are next in action at home to Wolverhampton Casuals on Saturday, February 4 with kick-off at 3pm at Townsend Meadow.
