The Non-League Football Paper - - NATIONAL LEAGUE NORTH - SAL­FORD CITY 2 LEAMINGTON 3 By Andy Gi­b­lin

LEAMINGTON scored from a trio of set­pieces to pick up an im­pres­sive win against joint-lead­ers Sal­ford.

The Brakes went ahead courtesy of a 19th minute penalty won when Am­mies de­fender Michael Not­ting­ham strug­gled to clear an awk­ward ball and Carl Pier­gianni was pe­nalised for a tug on Jack Ed­wards.

Rob Thomp­sonBrown tucked home the spot-kick, but Sal­ford were back level ten min­utes later.

Lois May­nard picked up a pass in­side from the left be­fore drilling in a low 20-yarder, with Mike Phenix get­ting a touch that di­rected the ball home.

Leamington had more pres­sure to ab­sorb be­fore re­tak­ing the lead in 44th minute when Con­nor Gudger lined up a 25-yard free­kick then clipped an ef­fort in via the in­side of Max Cro­combe’s left-hand up­right.

The sec­ond pe­riod saw the Am­mies push­ing for­ward and Phenix equalised again mid­way through the half, get­ting up to head home Ibou Touray’s cor­ner.

The Brakes snatched an un­likely win five min­utes from time, when a cor­ner dropped into the six-yard box for sub Kur­tis Re­van to touch home from close range.
