BROMSGROVE Sporting boss Brendan Kelly couldn't hide his delight this week after over 900 supporters packed themselves into the Victoria Ground to watch the Rouslers beat Welwyn Garden City 2-0.

Kelly said: "It was great and made for a really good atmosphere. Hopefully the supporters liked what they saw and went home with a smile on their faces.

"Welwyn Garden City were a good side, well organised and it took us until well into the first half before we started getting on top.

"Welwyn won their league last season and you could see they were very well equipped.

"They arrived at Bromsgrove one point ahead of us in the league table but the victory has now sent us top on goal difference from Corby Town who we play in two weeks time."

Second half strikes from Nathan Hayward and Richard Gregory eventually sealed the points for the Rouslers with Gregory taking his tally for the season to seven, making him the leading marksman in Southern League Central Division One.

Kelly added: " It was an important three points, but I think it will be the game against Corby which will give us a good reflection on where we are.

"I don't think Welwyn brought much support, but I'm hopeful that Corby will bring quite a few supporters of their own and it would be great to get the crowd over the 1,000 mark.

"What pleased me most about the win over Welwyn was the effort put in by all the players, There were no poor performances anywhere making it almost impossible to pick out a man-of-the-match as there were so many candidates."

The Rouslers have a re-arranged fixture for this Saturday with a trip to Aylesbury.

Kelly paid tribute to his secretary David Stephens for his persistence in obtaining the fixture.

He said: "We didn't have a game this week owing to our exit in the FA Cup, but I really wanted a game owing to the fact we're in such good form at the moment.

"We needed to play and David did everything to get the game on."

However Sporting will be missing key striker Jason Cowley who has now been suspended until October 6.
