Louth Town followed up their cup heroics with a 2-0 win over Teversal at Park Avenue on Saturday, their ninth straight win in all competitions.

The White Wolves had beaten Nostell Miners Welfare in a dramatic penalty shootout on Thursday night after a 3-3 draw, earning them a place in the NCEL League Cup Final.

Their run continued on Saturday, despite a run of four matches in just eight days, with top scorer Matt Kennedy netting the both the goals.

Kennedy wrong footed the visitors’ defence before hammering home after 37 minutes, adding a second on 65 minutes after good work from Andy Willoughby, his 28th of the season.

“We just seem to be getting better and better,” said Louth’s assistant manager Carl Forman.

“We have had 12 games unbeaten although we were all tired. We are creating challenges and taking them. Teversal is a very dangerous side but we dealt with the threat.

“The fitness of everyone in the squad is getting better all the time and the spirit is fantastic. Nobody wants to miss a match.”

Town now sit 7th and have four league games remaining starting with a visit to Bottesford Town on Wednesday night (7.45pm) and a local derby at Grimsby Borough on Saturday.

There is also an eye on the League Cup Final against either Thackley or Worksop Parramore which takes place on Bank Holiday Monday May 6 at Staveley Miners Welfare’s ground near Chesterfield.

The club is organising a coach for supporters wishing to travel together to the match which kicks off at 3pm.
