Leamington went down 0-1 at home to Stourbridge in the FA Trophy at the Phillips 66 Community Stadium today. Brakes weren't good enough across the game as a whole and one got the sense that cup specialists Stour wanted it more. It was their 11th cup game this season! Leamington never seemed to be able to find the second ball.
Leamington did have a chance to score about ten minutes in, but somehow the ball didn't end up in the net. On the whole it was a poor quality first half with neither side dominant.
The Glassboys bundled the ball in from a corner just after the break. Demands were made for Holleran to bring on substitutes, and eventually he did, but it didn't make much difference (except possibly Obeng but he only had 10 minutes). Brakes applied plenty of pressure in the last quarter of an hour, but Stour defended well. And a replay at their place was probably a reward not worth having.
