FOOTBALL - Solihull Moors ease past Woking to earn first win of New Year

ANDY Whing insists there are plenty of goals in his Solihull Moors side after Moors eased to a 3-0 home win against Woking.

Goals from James Clarke, Callum Maycock and Mark Beck sealed a comfortable victory for Moors at the ARMCO Arena.

And Moors boss Whing could not hide his delight after his side recorded back-to-back home wins in the league for the first time this season.

Whing said: “I’m really pleased, we dominated after a really poor first 15 minutes, we were brilliant.

“The second goal gave us a cushion and then the next goal is most important, we had loads of chances, we were aggressive, on the front foot.

“There’s loads of goals in us, we knew our home form had to drastically improve if we want to stay at the top end of the table.




“We managed the game fantastically well in the last 10 minutes which we’ve been poor at recently, full credit to the players they were outstanding.”

Moors broke the deadlock on 42 minutes when Clarke rose highest to head Jamey Osborne’s corner from the left into the bottom right corner at the near post.


And the home side doubled their lead on 48 minutes as Maycock’s low effort from just inside the penalty area proved too strong for Alexis AndrĂ© Jr after Beck headed Osborne’s long throw into the scorer’s path.

Moors made sure of the points on 75 minutes when Beck volleyed a loose ball into the bottom right corner from 15-yards out.

Solihull are next in action at home to Nantwich Town on Saturday, January 13 in the FA Trophy with kick-off at 3pm at the ARMCO Arena.
