New Stourbridge boss Mark Yates said he is 'champing at the bit' to get started at Amblecote after watching his new team move into the top five.

Stour win

Caretaker bosses Alex Nicholls and James Wren oversaw a comfortable win over a team that had beaten the Glassboys a few weeks ago.

Yates, who was appointed on Friday, thanked them for their efforts and said it was a vital win for the team.

He said: 'I've had a break from football and I am very keen to get back and get started at stourbridge which is a great club, run by good people.

' I'm keen to see how far we can go though making no promises, we have ten games left and are in a good position after this win.'

In difficult windy conditions, Stourbridge took the lead on 23 minutes when Anthony Dwyer controlled a long cross from Chay Tilt and scored from close range.

Andre Landell saw a header tipped wide and Tilt put a chip just wide after being put through as Stourbridge threatened a second.

The second half followed a similar pattern, Stourbridge looking more dangerous but both teams finding it hard to create chances.

But the game was wrapped up on 83 minutes when a great diagonal pass from Grocott was controlled by Dwyer in the box and after his sit was blocked, Landell made it two.

Stourbridge leapfrogged Rushall in the table and the two teams meet next Saturday.
