FOOTBALL - Racing Club Warwick thrash promotion hopefuls AFC Wulfrunians

DYLAN PARKER scored twice as Racing Club Warwick secured mathematical safety after thrashing promotion hopefuls AFC Wulfrunians.

Parker opened the scoring before adding the Racers third goal with Josh Parsons and Hanibal Salami also on target at Townsend Meadow.

The result leaves Racing in 14th place in the Midland Football League Premier Division as they look to close the gap to the teams above them.

And Warwick scored less than 30 seconds after kick-off when Parker collected a loose ball before rounding Tom Hayward and sliding an effort past the retreating defenders after Danny Murphy blocked an attempted clearance.

Parker almost made it two with a delightful chip over the Wulfrunians goalkeeper only for his effort to be cleared off the line from Ellie Ikwa’s superb through ball.

Warwick looked to press home their advantage with Ikwa and Parson shooting wide before Chris Mayuba’s effort was saved.

And the home side eventually doubled their lead on 22 minutes when Parsons brushed off two challenges before finding the corner after good work from Josh Steele and Mayuba.

The Racers trebled their advantage on 53 minutes when Parker delicately dinked the ball over the keeper after he was teed up by substitute Romario Martin.

Warwick continued to dominate the chances when Cal Templeton struck the post with a header from a corner before Salami coolly slotted home to put the game to bed from Eli Bako’s header across goal.

Racing’s last two home games will be free entry to supporters and have launched an early bird season ticket offer.
