NEW boys Coseley FC finally achieved lift off in the Beacon Sunday League.

Their winless Paycare Development Division programme had stretched to nine games - until this week when they fired six of the best to sink rivals Health Direct, writes Dave McLean.

Having conceded early on Coseley showed their fighting spirit to hit back and emerge worthy 6-2 winners as Kyle Glaze grabbed a well taken treble.

Rounding off a very successful afternoon for Coseley were the trio of Luke Ellis, Conor Powell and Jordan Norris. The much needed win also enabled Coseley to climb one place off the bottom rung.

Replying with a fine solo effort that saw him race past four opponents was Curtis Hutchinson and Nathaniel James also found the mark for Health Direct.

Coseley's fixture was one of only four Beacon games that got the go ahead, as runaway leaders CTS United recorded an eighth straight league success.

CTS took on local rivals Sedgley Rangers who had to settle for second best on the day after pushing the pacesetters all the way.

Sharing the goal limelight for CTS in a 4-2 victory were the quartet of Sam Astley, Jay Crumpton, Jack Gould and Luke Bates, with James Hill and Luke Jones replying.

On a day when CTS stretched their advantage at the top to eight points, second place AFC Sporting Gornal dropped vital points when held to a 3-3 draw by visiting Essington AFC, who led three times in a keenly contested clash.

In an end-to-end affair Owen Harris (two) and Jordan Robinson netted for Sporting with Kieron Brown, Jamal Jakeman and Lee Hickingbottom replying.

In the Concentric Property Beacon Championship, Claregate Park Rangers 2nds drew level on points at the top with fellow title contenders Sedgley and Gornal United and reigning champions Claregate Park Rangers after securing a 3-1 victory at Beacon Lions.

On target for Claregate seconds were Ashley Brown (two) and Dan Lawrence. The Lions' sole reply came from Adam Skeldon.
