Racing Club brush aside Copsewood

Leamington Editorial 29th Aug, 2017   0

FOOTBALL: RACING Club Warwick overcame a first league defeat on Saturday to clinch three points against a resolute Coventry Copsewood.

Sporting their new kit, Racing had Slevin and Leaver unavailable.

Ellis and Church filled the centre positions with skipper Price and new signing Luke Cole playing behind Adam Knight.

Cole showed his worth early on with two plays which set Knight through, but he was adjudged offside on both occasions.

Church almost opened the scoring but Copsewood’s keeper saved well before Warwick stopper Cross denied Farrell with two excellent saves.

Racing were denied an early second half lead when Cole’s effort was ruled out for handball after he charged down a clearance from a corner.

Manoochehri was then adjudged offside after putting the ball into the net from the left.

Though the bank holiday crowd started to ponder if the deadlock would ever be broken, Jack Taylor delivered a ball for Knight to hit home on 76 minutes.

A late Copsewood effort was then charged down with the ball looking goal-bound as Price put in a game-winning tackle at the death.

Racing held on to earn a deserved three points which sees them move to fifth in the league table.
