Birmingham Senior Cup 2nd Round – Tuesday, 12th November, 2002

Halesowen Town 3 Studley FC 0

Halesowen booked their place in the last sixteen of the Birmingham Senior Cup but the visitors stunned the home defence in the 4th minute when a diving header from Mark Beddowes hit the post. Almost immediately Halesowen’s Kirk Master replied by cracking a 25-yard effort against the Studley woodwork.

The Yeltz took a 21st minute lead with May heading home a right wing corner from Master and went two goals ahead in the 35th minute through Dominic Reece’s direct free-kick on the edge of the penalty area.

Half-time substitute Rob Elmes put a 52nd minute free header wide of the mark from Richard Colwell’s cross and on 64 minutes Reece fired a fierce shot at Studley goalkeeper Danny Lewis. Lewis then made another fine save from Master’s 18-yard shot in the 75th minute.

Studley enjoyed a fair proportion of second-half possession and had a good chance to pull a goal back in the 81st minute when Mark Crisp hit against the bar from 10-yards with substitute Kevin Rowlands blasting the rebound high. Halesowen added a third goal in the 87th minute when Lewis failed to hold a shot from Master leaving substitute Richard LEADBEATER with a simple tap-in. On full-time, Master broke from his own half and set up Elmes but the striker completely missed the target with the goal at his mercy.
