Shortwood 7 - Alvechurch 1
An entertaining game played by two teams intent on playing fast free flowing football.
Shortwood started the brighter and were ahead on 11 minutes when Charlie Anderson outmuscled an Alvechurch defender and finished well into the bottom corner.
Alvechurch then grew into the game and it was no surprise when they equalised with a fine goal, a quick switch of play, a fine cross and neat finish past Shortwood's debutant keeper, Harry Davies.
Shortwood regained the lead on the stroke of half time when Thomas King found Charlie Bean in the box and he smashed the ball home.
The third quarter was an even affair but Shortwood took their chances, King racing away to shoot under the away keeper, Mack Higgins prodding home from close range and Anderson scoring from the spot after Daniel Grace was felled in the box.
King scored two more in the final quarter to make the final score 7-1.
Congratulations to both teams for playing in the right spirit and Shortwood wish Alvechurch all the best for the rest of the season.
