Hathern unable to stop the unbeaten league leaders



IT’S a story of no change in the Everards Brewery Premier Division this week. Rugby Borough made it 14 wins from 14 games, as Halim Halim, the player so good they named him twice, scored twice, either side of the break, as they won 2-0 away to Hathern.

Friar Lane & Epworth secured a 4-0 win away to Sileby Town, Giuseppe Giliberti (2), Jordan Henry and Stefan Stapleton the scorers.

At the bottom of the table, Ashby Ivanhoe Knights continue to occupy a drop spot after a comprehens­ive 5-2 defeat at home to Desford, for whom Macauley Parnell scored four, and Jack Spence scored the other. Cottesmore kicked well-clear of the basement battle as they beat Quorn-based ProChance Football Academy 3-0.

In Everards Brewery Division One, Burbage Old Boys continued their recent impressive form by scoring nine on the road for the second time in four weeks. Friar Lane & Epworth Reserves were on the receiving end this week, who with the score at just 2-0 at half-time, little suspected the second period rout that followed. All in all, Andrei Graur took a massive leap in the scoring charts, as he bagged seven goals for himself, the biggest single haul for a goalscorer in the LSL so far this season. Danny King and Pele Orton added the extras for the BOB, whilst Brooklyn Ndankwa scored the Lane’s consolatio­n, as Burbage moved back into the top four.

Down at the bottom, Loughborou­gh’s recent improvemen­t fizzled out as they lost 3-1 away to Ingles Reserves. Luke Allard, Ryan Hardy and Isaac Hetterley scored for Ingles, Jordan Cufflin-Stableford for the Luffs, who are four points adrift of both Kibworth and Barlestone St Giles, who came up just short at Barrow Town Reserves, losing 3-2, the scores having been level at 2-2 at the break. Jamil Chowdhury’s brace and Ben Eames the goals for the Riversider­s, William Kirkland-Bell and Daniel Morris for the Saints.

In Everards Brewery Division Two, it looked like North Kilworth’s cup exploits in midweek had left them with foggy heads as well as the foggy conditions last Monday, as they were held at the break by visitors Sileby Town Reserves. However, they found the extra gear that they needed in the second half to maintain their advantage and their League record of 12 from 12, Jack Allen, Jarrad Pickering and Tom Cox their scorers in a 3-0 win for the leaders.

Rothley Imperial looked set for their first win since the end of August when they went in 3-0 up at St Andrews Reserves, with Zak Ginvert scoring a double and Dave Reeves making it three. The Andrews though managed a stirring comeback, and goals from Sam Beck, Dave Fisher and Kieron Smith were enough to give them a share of the points, final score being 3-3.
