FA Trophy: Rushall Olympic 4 Barwell 1 - Report

Rushall Olympic progressed into the first round proper of the Buildbase FA Trophy after recording back to back victories over Barwell in the space of four days.

It was the home side who went ahead in the twenty first minute when Tyler Lyttle`s throw was headed over the stranded visiting goalkeeper Liam Castle.

Lyttle almost caught Castle off his line with a quickly taken free-kick but the keeper gathered well and just before the break Orrin Pendley`s powerful header was just over the bar.

Nine minutes into the second half saw the visitors equalised when Sam Hollis forced the ball home after a scramble but five minutes later the home side restored their lead when Rackeem Reid rounded off an excellent move.

Castle brought down Riccardo Calder and Sam Whittall sent the keeper the wrong way and substitute Danny Glover, making his debut, rounded off a good afternoon for the home side by firing home.
