FOOTBALL: RACING Club Warwick extended their unbeaten run in the Midland League Division One to four matches after opening 2017 with a 2-0 victory over Studley.

On the back of their record 15-0 victory over Southam and the brilliant point away at leaders Bromsgrove, the 100 crowd were expectant against a struggling Studley on Monday.

Zak Harbon and Mark Turton came in for Jamie Vadasz and Jake Brown and on a heavy pitch, both sides struggled to gain any early momentum.

Wade Malley had the first real chance of the match on 30 minutes when he forced his way past two players before firing past the Studley goalkeeper to open the scoring.

Malley then came close to scoring a second but his free kick sailed narrowly over the bar before a Martin Slevin free kick was brilliantly saved onto the bar to keep Studley in the game.

After the break Harbon made it a full senior debut to remember after a handful of substitute appearances when on 66 minutes he doubled Warwick’s lead.

From then on the home side look comfortable in possession and ran out 2-0 winners. Warwick are back in action this Saturday when they travel to Coventry Copsewood where a win could push them up to second in the table.
