CHEVEZ Walder scored a hat-trick as Bourton and Frankton beat Panjab Athletic 5-0 to secure their first win since September.

Walder struck twice before the break and completed his treble in the second half while Chris Shorey netted a brace at The Field.

The result means Bourton sit seventh in the Coventry Alliance Division Three table.

Bourton took the lead when Shorey produced a stunning effort from long range which looped over the Panjab goalkeeper.

And Walder then struck twice to put Bourton in command before the striker completed his hat-trick from the penalty spot in the second period.

Shorey added some gloss to the scoreline with his second of the game as Bourton earned a first league win in four months.

Bourton are next in action away at league leaders Sporting Coventry on Saturday, February 3 with kick-off at 2.15pm at North Leamington School.

Elsewhere, the club’s under-15 side scored two own goals in a 2-1 home defeat against Poppy FC in the Coventry and Warwickshire Youth Football League.

Bourton broke the deadlock through Freddie Young’s excellent strike only to concede an own goal either side of the break.
