STEVE Morish took just seven minutes to score on his debut for Laverstock and Ford helping them to their second home league win on the trot, as they beat Ringwood Town 4-2.

Starting brightly, the home side were into their stride early, Archie Lovegrove hitting the bar with a free-kick on four minutes, after shortly before Chae Sykes saw a one on one saved.

The opening goal came soon after, as Ollie Roe corner was met by Morish.

Despite the dominant start is was the visitors who got the second goal three minutes later.

A hopeful long ball was collected by Nasim Meddah and he made no mistake blasting the ball beyond Tom Roberts.

The pressure continued on the Town goal, Lewis Wakeford twice being denied by good saves and on 28 minutes a barnstorming run by the returning Pete Fletcher led to Sykes coolly converting. The big man did not have to wait too long for his second which came on 33 minutes, after Wakeford played him through and he coolly rounded the goalkeeper to give his side a deserved 3-1 lead at half-time.

Ringwood came out with more intent in the second half and were visibly making a fight of the game.

Lovegrove should have killed the game off but his header was adjudged to bounce off the bar onto the line before being cleared.

On the hour mark, Ringwood struck with their second, Meddah once again causing problems and scoring.

With time running out Lewis Wykes was sent on in search of the killer goal and he delivered within two minutes of coming on.

Manager Liam McConnell said: "I was delighted with the hard work the lads put in today.

"Yet again we created so many chances and should really have killed the game off before half time.

"Ringwood came at us harder in the second half, but the lads stood tall and didn’t panic when they unsettled us. I was delighted for the goal scorers today.

"Steve (Morish) making his first start, it was great to cap a fine performance with a goal, the big fella Chae Sykes, he works tirelessly and deserved his goals and of course Wykesy, delighted for him to get off the mark this season.

"We deserved that win so hopefully we can build on that next week again at home to Fawley."
