FOOTBALL - Ebanks goals send Stratford Town into play-off places

CALLUM Ebanks continued his fine form in front of goal after scoring in Stratford Town’s Easter wins against Kettering Town and Stourbridge.

Ebanks found the net alongside Paul McCone in a 2-0 home win against Kettering on Easter Monday after scoring the only goal against Stourbridge at the War Memorial Athletic Ground two days earlier.

The results mean the Bards sit fourth in the Southern League Premier Central table, five points clear of the chasing pack in the race for a play-off place.

Against Kettering, Stratford broke the deadlock after just three minutes when Ebanks collected a wayward pass before providing a clinical finish.

And the home side doubled their lead six minutes before the break as McCone tapped in from close range after Lewis Ludford-Ison flicked on Chris Hussey’s free-kick.

That came after the Bards battled to a 1-0 victory away at Stourbridge as Ebanks scored the game’s only goal in first-half injury time.

Ebanks smashed home from close range after Andre Landell pounced on a slip from Glassboys defender Joel Kettle.

Stratford are next in action at home to Redditch United on Saturday, April 6 with kick-off at 3pm at the Arden Garages Stadium.
