Church poor form continues


For the fourth time this season, Alvechurch bowed out of the first round of a cup competition; losing 4-3 to AFC Wulfrunians on penalties after a lacklustre display.

Alvechurch came into the game looking for a first victory since the end of August to try and build some momentum; but created little chances. Kyle Perry had a shot easily saved by Connor Hopkins in the Wulfs goal; before firing wide from 30 yards out. Angelo Franco and Jemaane Meggoe fired over for the visitors to end a quiet first-half.

The game failed to pick up in the second-half, with Wulfs substitute James Hill forcing a save from Joe Slinn in goal. Mitch Botfield then went on a driving run from midfield but his shot went well wide of the goal.

With no extra-time the game went straight to penalties and Darren Byfield's men made the worse possible start to the shoot-out with debutant Rikardo Reid seeing his shot saved by Hopkins. What followed was a little bit of a penalty masterclass with both side's putting away their penalties expertly. This meant that Jordan Goddard had to score his spot kick; but he struck the crossbar sending the visitors through.

Alvechurch are next in action away to Needham Market on Saturday.
