Lutterworth Town end 2016 home campaign with massive 11-0 win over Allexton and New Parks

LUTTERWORTH Town ended their 2016 home campaign in style with a sensational 11-0 win against Allexton and New Parks.

The Swifts haven’t lost at home since March last year and, following an emphatic 5-1 victory in the Cup against Aylestone Park last week, they weren’t going to let things slip.

Heavy rain fell prior to Saturday’s kick-off at Dunley Way, something which appeared to suit the visiting team as Allexton went close in the early stages.

Lutterworth’s defence held firm and gradually Town managed to pin their opponents into their own half.

Pressure mounted and Lutterworth broke the deadlock with a carefully placed finish from Shaquille O’Neill Brooks.

It wasn’t long before Lutterworth made it two as Tendai Daire completed an acrobatic overhead kick leaving the Allexton bench stunned.

Daire added a third moments later when a visiting defender threw his hands up in the air to block a shot, a move now considered worthy of a red card – reducing Allexton to ten men.

Another goal was added before half time making the score 4-0.

Allexton endeavoured to cut the deficit in the second half, but Lutterworth proved too strong to break down.

Town made use of the extra man and piled on the pressure.

Three further goals were added courtesy of Daire and Joe Herbert while Small convered from close range and Dixon scored a penalty to make it nine.

Left back Louis Samuels then found himself on the edge of the Allexton box and smashed home a strike into Allexton’s net, making it ten.

Dixon added an 11th goal after lifting a shot over a stranded keeper.

Lutterworth now sit at the top of the table with five games in hand.
