Bees playing a waiting game with weather

Liam Moakes 1st Mar, 2018

STUDLEY’S midweek visit to Littleton fell foul of the ‘Beast from the East’ and Saturday’s scheduled trip to Paget Rangers was in jeopardy as the Standard went to press.

The Bees, now eighth, came back from two goals down to earn a 2-2 draw at lowly Coventry Alvis in Midland League Division One on Saturday.

Michael Healey struck twice in the opening quarter of the match to put the hosts in command before Studley came roaring back.

The visitors reduced their arrears before half-time through Andy Nicol’s penalty and Chris Cowley equalised in the second half but, despite hitting the woodwork an incredible five times, Studley were unable to find a winner despite relentless pressure.

Meanwhile, Vaughan Pearshouse is seeking to add ex-Hinckley and Redditch United striker Jake Healy to his Bees squad following Billy Garvey’s return to former club Redditch Borough.
