Dawley have Telford Sunday League glory in their sights

By Nick Elwell | Grassroots | Published:

Unbeaten Premier Division leaders Dawley FC turned the screw on the chasing pack with another emphatic win in the Telford Sunday League.

Dawley hit form again as they puts seven goals without reply past visiting Traveller’s Joy FC to record their 10th win in 11 league games.

And although second-placed Whitehorse Athletic did all that they could to keep up the pressure, their 5-0 home win against Captain Webb left them with one game less than Dawley to play and three points adrift.

Celtic Spartans and The Talbot are chasing but remain some way behind the leading two.

Spartans suffered an ill-timed odd-goal in three defeat at Riverside, but The Talbot picked up a useful 5-2 home win against Shifnal North End.

Division One leaders Wrockwardine Wood Wanderers, approaching the end of their league programme, added maximum three more points to their tally with a 3-1 home win against Crown.

But Wood are looking anxiously over their shoulder at the juggernaut coming up behind them that is AFC Broseley.

Broseley bagged nine unanswered goals at Black Horse and are 10 points behind the leaders with five games in hand, and seem unlikely at this stage to take their foot of the accelerator.

Kings Arms Market Drayton continued their improvement with a 4-0 home win over Britannia FC.

In the Kath Ford Cup, Bulls Head Dawley Bank Vets progressed to the semi-final stage thanks to a 4-2 win at St Georges.
