Villa are boosted by duo’s return

First published in Sport

FAIRFIELD Villa saw the return of two former goal-scoring heroes as they put Coton Green to the sword 6-1 in the Midland Combination Division One.

Villa were boosted as Stuart Hall re-joined the club from Earlsdon and in-form Andy Nicol was back too.

Nicol had been scoring goals for Midland Alliance outfit Alvechurch but was looking to drop down a level because of work commitments.

Bromsgrove Sporting also waived the seven-day rule to allow Jordan Street and Pete Jenvey to sign before Saturday’s clash.

Oakes said: “Bromsgrove Sporting were kind to allow their two players to join before the seven days were up.

“We had a big boost in two strikers returning in Stuart and Andy.

“Andy was a complete surprise, he called to ask can he come to training and then wanted to sign.”

Scott Gaffney bagged a hat-trick against Green, while Nicol, Jenvey and Kieron Evans also struck.

Villa travel to Phoenix United on Saturday Fairfield’s new reserve team made a winning start to the Kidderminster and District League Saturday Premier, beating Two Gates 2-1.

Meanwhile, Droitwich Spa were edged out 1-0 by Phoenix.

They entertain Stretton Eagles in the President’s Cup on Saturday (3pm ko).
