Racing Club Warwick ended Heather St John's unbeaten start to the season with a deserved home win at Townsend Meadow. With Martin Slevin and last weeks hat trick man Luke Cole amongst the missing players, Warwick started the brighter of the two sides and . Jak Jeys on his home debut went close at the back post after good work from Marc Passey down the right and Jeys was foiled again with a fantastic stop from the Heather keeper. Sean Castleton, Scott Turner and Joe Smith were all denied from one corner with the final effort cleared off the line and Wade Malley was replaced by Ross Quartermaine after aggravating his groin.
Heather got to grips with the game mid way through the half and the dangerous Simeon Cobourne who has already bagged 15 goals this term broke free but a fantastic save from Charlie Bannister foiled the striker. The game was even now and when Cobourne broke free on the left and squared for Matt Gardner to tuck away it looked like Warwick were going in to half time behind. Ben Mackey had other ideas and he prodded home past the keeper just a minute later to swing the momentum back again.
Second half and the Warwick back line looked solid with Passey and Rich Powell now starting to push forward on the flanks. Jeys came very close with a shot that bounced back off the inside of the post into the keepers grateful hands before Mackey settled the game. Collecting the ball with his back to goal he turned and fired in a shot that caught a slight deflection and took the ball further from the keeper into the top of the net. Castleton and Turner mopped up any threat from Heather in the final stages and Warwick always looked dangerous on the counter as the game wore on.
Warwick entertain Nuneaton Griff on Tuesday night, kickoff 745 at Townsend Meadow and a victory would see them go 2nd.
