AFC Casey’s returned to winning ways in the the Rugby & District Sunday League Division One with a 3-0 victory over London Calling Rugby.

Casey’s were strengthened by the return of Alex O’Connor, Matty Russ, Chris Cowley and Dan Smith.

The first-half was goalless but Casey’s finished it strongly.

The second half saw the introduction of Matty Farrell, and with almost his first touch he scored the first of his two well-taken goals.

The second half saw the introduction of youngsters Liam Fuller, who marked his appearance with a well-taken goal from close range, and Josh Hyams whose non-stop action created several chances.

Casey’s, although on top for most of the second half, can thank Tom Consentino for a double save from close-range, and Kevin Eales’ goal line clearance for keeping a clean sheet.

This Sunday Casey’s travel to Rugby to visit Community Relations who, along with Long Lawford, are expected to be in contention for the league title.
