Newark Flowserve continue hot streak in Division Two of Notts Senior League

By Connor Thompson

Unlike the first team, Newark Flowserve Reserves were on their travels as they defeated a Kirton Brickworks Reserve side who are second-bottom in Division Two of the Notts Senior League.

First choice keeper Lewis Cawthorne returned to the starting 11 and Thomas Perkins slotted into left-wing in the absence of top-scorer Leighton Nicholson.

Tyler Martin and Callum Barnes hit first-half braces as Flowserve reserves flew into a 4-0 lead.

However, a solid defensive performance came under pressure before the break as the referee awarded a penalty to the hosts after Perkins had been deemed to have pushed an opponent down in the penalty area.

The resulting penalty was converted and put a stain on what was otherwise a spotless first-half performance.

In ruthless fashion, a four-goal display followed in the second-half as Barnes hit two more, which took his tally to four and earned him the man-of-the-match award.

Ed Munton, who had been used as a make shift goalkeeper in the previous fixture, returned to his usual position in midfield and managed to get on the scoresheet, before substitute Ryan Pillborough rounded off the goals with a smashed effort from the edge of the box.
