Millers swoop to sign young striker Frain

Liam Moakes 10th Nov, 2016

FECKENHAM have bolstered their ranks by signing teenage forward Bradley Frain.

The 18-year-old joined Highgate United during the 2014/15 season from Leamington FC U18s and progressed through their reserve ranks before making a number of appearances for Gate’s first team in the Midland League Premier Division.

The Solihull-born player, who spent most of last season playing Midland Floodlit football for Stratford Town U18s, has excited the Feckenham management and is in line to make his debut in Saturday’s mid-table Midland League Division Two clash at home to Sutton United.

Feckenham enjoyed a thumping 5-0 home win over league rivals Continental Star in the Les James Challenge Cup on Saturday.

Danny Murphy showed quick reactions to put the Millers ahead in the 14th minute and it was 3-0 before the break as Ben Cox struck twice.

He made it 2-0 in the 26th minute by converting Jack Brimmell’s superb cross at the far post and the same combination teamed up to make it 3-0.

Adam Garmson’s brilliant volley from all of 28 yards made it 4-0 in the 71st minute, before the scoring was completed seven minutes from time when Brimmell capped a fine display with a superb individual goal which saw him lob the Star keeper.

The Millers will host local rivals Redditch Borough in the quarter-finals on December 3.

DEAN HAY’S second half strike earned a point for Redditch Borough as they came from behind to draw 1-1 at Smithswood Firs in Midland League Division Two.

Seventh placed Borough host Hampton on Saturday.

ALCESTER Town claimed a 1-0 Midland League Division Three victory at Barton United on Saturday thanks to Kieran Downey’s strike.

Depleted Town bagged their deserved winner when Downey marked his return from injury by converting Sam Goodhall’s free kick in the second half.

The hosts had been reduced to ten men in the first half when a player saw red for a professional foul on Robbie Davies.

The victory lifted Danny Janes’ side into sixth place and they will look to kick on when they visit lowly Castle Vale Town on Saturday.
