Saltmen school Telford Juniors in seven-goal smash and grab

Ben Tyler 14th Feb, 2019 Updated: 14th Feb, 2019

DROITWICH Spa FC’s Chris Conway was in formidable form, when he struck four on his debut en route to a 7-0 victory over Telford Juniors last weekend.

Remarkably, the game was goal-less until just before the break, when the Saltmen struck in the 38th minute.

Cory Rudd’s corner was floated into the penalty area, met by Matty Hunt who rose highest to nestle the ball deep into the Telford net.

The goal prompted a second-half flurry of goals from the visitors, which would arrive after chances for Conway, Bradley Burgess and Hadyn Morris went begging.

Conway netted his first goal for the club to provide a cushion for Spa’s lead, rounding the keeper and tapping home in the 52nd minute.

Spa were a lot more clinical in taking their chances and played the ball about far more crisply with the injection of confidence that a two-goal lead gave them.

Ben Tilbury put away the third from Cory Rudd’s ball, before Burgess followed in Conway’s footsteps to round the keeper and leave himself the simplest of finishes.

There was a second for Conway when he expertly headed home Dan Cottrill’s cross, claiming his hat-trick four minutes later after Jack Davies laid him off for the finish.

He saw a potential fourth goal cannon back off the woodwork when beating the keeper from the half-way line, but did clinch another goal to finish off his scoring spree and wrap up the three points.

The result means Droitwich have now scored 17 goals in their previous two fixtures, and will be hopeful of adding to their recent scoring run in Saturday’s trip to Tipton Town (3pm).
