Barton defeat Handsworth & go top of the league

It was a night to remember for Barton Town as they made a statement of intent beating highly thought of Handsworth Parramore last night at The Easy Buy Stadium.


The Ambers initially took the lead just after the break when Jonathan Williams slide the ball home.

However, Barton regrouped and equalised on 61 minutes as Tom Waudby stroke the ball into the net from the penalty spot.

The turnaround was complete with 11 minutes left when a defensive mistake was capitalised on by Gareth Barlow who saw his shot parried high up in the air and eventually bounced into the net.

The gloss on the victory was complete in injury time when Barlow tapped home after a wonderful run by Donald Chimalilo.

Further misery was brought upon the Ambers deep into injury time as they were reduced to 10-men for a cynical foul.
