Littleton boss left in seventh heaven
11:10am Saturday 8th September 2012 in Sport
MANAGER Andy Robbins says he wishes Littleton could play every day after watching his side storm to the top of the Midland Combination Premier Division.
A commanding 7-0 victory at Racing Club Warwick on Saturday propelled Littleton to the summit as they continue to make huge strides following their promotion last season.
Joe Lolley struck four times to take his tally so far to eight, while Clarke added two and Joe Walsh the other.
Robbins, whose side host Lichfield City on Saturday (3pm), said: “We are playing really well and even their chairman said we should have had 10.
“We have hit a purple patch and wish we could play every day. As a manager, I can’t get any better. I can’t praise the players enough, their work-rate is outstanding.”
Lolley fired Littleton ahead from close range after 15 minutes before, five minutes later, Simon Fitter picked out Clarke and he cut inside from the left before drilling home the second.
The chances continued to come and it was no surprise when the visitors increased their lead through Walsh, who waltzed through three tackles to score. Lolley added a fourth before the break.
Racing Club Warwick started the second-half strongly and it needed a fine save from goalkeeper Danny Edwards, as well as the hosts putting a penalty against the bar, to keep the four-goal cushion intact.
Lolley completed his hattrick with a superb overhead kick in the 70th minute and Clarke grabbed his second.
Lolley fired a fourth late on.
