On a perfect Spring day for football Brocton quickly created chances through the irrepressible Sam Bell.

He made charge after charge down the right wing delivering excellent crosses into the visitor`s box. Fife, Hamiliton and Berks all had goalbound efforts blocked as Alvis threw themselves in the path of the ball.
A series of corners saw the ball swinging back and forth across the box and still Alvis survived.
Alvis were however quick on the counter attacks and although these were few in  number they were the first to score when Brocton passed back towards their goal and were dispossessed on the right, leading to a smart shot beating Whitehouse at his near post.
Brocton continued to press forward but were now lacking in conviction. Hamilton struggled to hold up the ball and a couple chances elluded him before he calmly controlled a Lomas cross before sidefooting home to equalise.
After half-time Alvis seemed to tire and Brocton began to play more controlled football. Charie and Jones came off the bench and the former in particular added an edge up front pulling the Alvis defence around. The breakthrough came when Alvis conceded a penalty which Ablewhite coolly struck home.
Brocton went on to score a third when McMahon, also a substitute, picked his spot after good work by Charie.  Skinner looking very assured after his long absence through injury hooked home a corner and captain Berks left the best till last when he drove a freekick past the Alvis defensive wall to make it 
Brocton retain topspot. Next week they travel to Southam in another Midland Combination Premier league fixture.
