Five wins in a row for Whitchurch United
8:00pm Tuesday 15th October 2013 in Football
WHITCHURCH United are five games unbeaten following a 2-1 victory over visiting Verwood Town at Longmeadow on Saturday.
Wessex League Premier Division strugglers Verwood set the early pace and took the lead on 10 minutes. Whitchurch goalkeeper Tom Hindmarsh's throw was intercepted by Jack Lovell who found Nathan Saxby and his excellent strike found the net.
It took a handball from Verwood's Matthew Oldring to give Whitchurch the chance to draw level - and Luke Walker did not disappoint, his spot-kick sending the 'keeper the wrong way.
Whitchurch scored the winner on the hour as James Tennant picked up a sloppy pass and crossed for Scott Hassell to head home the winner.
The result leaves Whitchurch ninth in the table. They are without a game on Saturday but take on Andover Town in the North Hants Senior Cup next Tuesday.
