OVERTON made it six wins on the trot as they beat visiting Clanfield 1-0 last Saturday in the Hampshire Premier League.

George Hallahan scored their winner after 36 minutes.

Joint manager Joe Lawler said: "Being minus key players and leaders in the dressing room including Craig Atkinson, Darren Turner and Stuart Urquhart. So to win the game and keep a clean sheet I am not sure we could of asked for more.

"We are in great form and have faced a lot of challenges over the last six games and to win all six has been great. Although we weren’t at our best we grinded out the result and I still thought we were the better team throughout.

"Although the score line was tight I thought we were in control throughout the game and they only really looked dangerous from set pieces and late on.

Next for Overton is another home game and they will hoping for another big crowd for the visit of Sway on Saturday.

The Wednesday before, Overton played their first home game of the season and beat local rivals Stockbridge 2-1.

Lawler said: "This win was very pleasing as Stockbridge had already beaten us 4-0 earlier in season at their place so it was a good test and showed how far we have come in a very short amount of time."

The game itself started horrendously for the home side as Stockbridge struck after eight minutes from Callum Buck.

After the break, Overton scored twice in the space of two minutes.

Hallahan scored the first from 25 yards out with a great dipping strike.

Shortly after this Christian Cox scored the goal of a night finishing off a great passing move which started from Craig Atkinson and resulted in Finley Hall firing the ball across the box for fellow winger Cox to slot home.

In the last 10 minutes Stockbridge inevitably started to put pressure on the home back four, but a good save from Atkinson and some good defending from the back line meant we kept our lead until the final whistle.

Lawler added: "Stockbridge are a very good team well organised and I believe they will be right up there come end of year. So It was really enjoyable to get the victory and highlight how much we have improved throughout the first eight games of the season."

Stockbridge on Saturday lost 3-1 to second placed Infinity with Josh Graham scoring their goal.

This weekend, they are away at Bush Hill.
