Four wins in a row for Overton United
OVERTON United recorded their fourth successive win with a fine 3-1 victory over visiting Liphook United on Saturday.
The hosts took the lead on eight minutes, Chris Lavisher firing a fine volley into the net from Alex Jupp’s pinpoint cross. They doubled their advantage four minutes later, Danny Houseman guiding James Jupp’s deep cross beyond the visiting goalkeeper.
A third goal followed on 31 minutes, Julian Grant squaring the ball for Dave Parry to smash a fine shot into the top corner – and Overton remained 3-0 ahead at half-time.
Liphook improved after the break and hit the crossbar before pulling a goal back with a near-post header from a corner, while Overton goalkeeper Sean O’Brien made some good saves late on.
Overton manager, Titch Bloomfield, said: “It was a good win against a good Liphook side. It was a great team effort to get the victory.”
The result means Overton are now eighth in the Hampshire Premier League table and they are at home again on Saturday, hosting 16th-placed Fleetlands, while they travel to Tadley Calleva in the North Hampshire Senior Cup next Wednesday.
Bloomfield added: “We have won four on the trot now so we are on a roll and will be looking to win again. We have a few players missing but that means there will be an opportunity for some of the youngsters to shine.”
