Stapenhill romped to a 6-0 win away at Coventry Copsewood on Tuesday night to reclaim top spot in Midland Football League Division 1.

The Swans have now netted 20 goals in their last three games after recording 7-3 and 7-1 victories.

Oli Roome netted a hat-trick on the night as Connor Richins also notched his customary goal for Stapenhill.

George Teeney also fired home, as did Jack Thatcher, who went on to miss a penalty later in the game.

After conceding a spot kick, goalkeeper Paul Hollis saved the penalty for Stapenhill in the opening stages before going on to keep a clean sheet.

The big win takes the club top of the division on goal difference having played a game less than second-placed Atherstone Town.


Butlin the hero for Chasetown

Elsewhere, Joey Butlin scored a 90th-minute goal to rescue a point for Chasetown in their 1-1 Northern Premier League Midlands Division encounter with Soham Town Rangers.

They rise to second in the table as a result.

Stafford Rangers are up to eighth in the Premier Division following a solid 2-0 away win at Lancaster City.

John Moran and Joe Kenton found the net on 23 and 77 minutes, respectively.

Finally, Hednesford Town exited the Southern League Challenge Cup in the first round following a 4-0 defeat at home to Bromsgrove Sporting.
