Eastwood Community FC found Clifton All Whites in good form on Saturday at Coronation Park as the visitors ran out 3-1 winners to move up to fourth in the league.

Connor Hardy, Allan Jeffries and Rob Gill were on target, although Eastwood, boasting more new signings as Paul MacFarland continues to rebuild their squad, did manage to register their first goal since their opening game of the season as Tom Budd hit the net for the home side.

The result means Eastwood remain bottom and without a point in the Central Midlands League South but they have two games in hand on 15th placed Holbrook St Michaels whom they host at Coronation Park on Saturday with a 3pm kick-off - the last match before a two-week break for MacFarland’s side.
