Dr Martens Premier League - Saturday, 16th September, 2000

Clevedon Town 1 Halesowen Town 4

Caretaker manager Alan Moore led Halesowen to their first win of the season with the help of two penalties strikes as Halesowen finally put their start of season nightmare behind them.

The visitors made an ideal start when Iain Harvey tripped Stuart Payne and Les Hines stepped up to score from the resulting penalty in the 9th minute. Clevedon levelled with their first strike on goal in the 23rd minute when Danny Haines cracked home directly from a 25 yard freekick. David Mehew struck the side-netting with a glancing header three minutes later, but Halesowen regained the lead in first half stoppage time when Scott Darroch thundered an 18 yard volley into the angle of the net, taking advantage of Harvey’s poor clearance. It was a memorable strike to register the 700th goal in the Southern Premier for the Yeltz.

Halesowen’s Andy Quy produced a fine save from Richard Ford in the 56th minute but then in a repeat of the first half, Harvey brought down Payne who had made a great right wing run and Hines again crashed home from the penalty spot to increase Halesowen’s lead. Ex-Macclesfield man Michael Mason stepped off the substitute’s bench to notch Halesowen’s fourth in injury time after tricking his way past two defenders and curling the ball beyond Mark Hervin to make Halesowen’s victory a comprehensive one.
