Earlswood Town 4 Pershore Town 1

Midland Combination Premier Division

A SENSATIONAL first half performance saw Earlswood storm into a 4-0 lead as they went on to record their first double of the season on Saturday.

It took just seven minutes for Earls to go ahead and the goal came when Charisma Agbonlahor was sent clear by Sam Wills and he drilled a low shot into the corner of the net.

Despite the heavy surface, Earls were producing some nice football and they went 2-0 ahead in the 18th minute when after slicing his way through the defence, Agbonlahor let fly and with the help of a slight deflection the ball found its way past the keeper.

Agbonlahor then fed Wills to made it 3-0 in the 32nd minute before Dale Edwards added a fourth seven minutes later when rounding the keeper and tapping into an empty net.

The second half proved a more even contest as Earls took their foot off the gas with Richard Taylor making a good save in the opening stages.

Pershore pulled one back in the 70th minute with a scrambled effort but Agbonlahor nearly stretched the lead again, only to see his shot hit the top of the bar.

By the time Ben Judd headed wide in the closing stages Earls, who were scheduled to tackle Dudley town in the second round of the Floodlit Cup last night (Wednesday) already knew they had done enough to seal the victory.

Saturday sees Earls travel to Brocton for a 3pm kick-off.
