Leigh Road pick up first win of SCFL season

By Matthew Verrinder

Leigh Road defeat West Leigh 3-0 to earn first points

Clinical finishing and an obdurate defence led Leigh Road to victory over West Leigh today. A brace from Matt Hamberger and one for Dan Waymark gave Sean Hill's men their first victory of the season. A superb free kick gave Leigh Rd the lead on 20minutes which they doubled soon after courtesy of a neat finish from Hamberger following a tight offside call going against the West Leigh defence.
West Leigh fought back in the second half with plenty of possession and changes but not able to find a way past stand-in keeper/manager Hill. Hamberger scored again in the dying minutes to secure a 3-0 victory for Leigh Road.
