BLUES boss Lee Casswell was full of praise for his side after their FA Cup win against Lichfield City.

He said: "I thought it was a good performance and a great result that puts us in the next round.

"We told the players we wanted no complacency, no upsets – and they took it on board and had the game won and the job done inside the opening 20 minutes.

"It was important that we were not involved in any replay, so I'm delighted that we can now concentrate on the next two league games before we go into the next round of the cup."

BLUES have been named the Evo-Stik Club of the Month in the First Division South for August.

They are the only remaining club to boast a 100 per cent league record, having won all four of their opening encounters, and they also possess the best goal difference, after scoring an average of three goals a game.

The club will be presented with a 4.5 litre bottle of Bell's whisky and an inscribed certificate to mark their achievements by league representative John Beaumont and a representative from the sponsors, Bostik Ltd, parent company of the Northern Premier League's title sponsors Evo-Stik.

The presentation will be made next Wednesday (September 10) when Stocksbridge Park Steels are the visitors to Harrison Park.

BLUES entertain Stourport Swifts in the FA Cup first qualifying round on September 13 (3pm).

Stourport play in the newly-formed Midland League Premier Division and beat West Midland Regional League outfit Wellington FC 3-2 in the preliminary round on Saturday.

SEAN Kinsella is well on the way to recovering from the broken ankle he sustained in the pre-season friendly against a Port Vale XI.

The midfielder, who joined the club from Mickleover Sports during the summer, was 30 minutes into his debut when he fell awkwardly.

Kinsella had the plaster removed two weeks ago and has joined the warm-up sessions before the last two games.

Meanwhile, striker Tom Lowe, who moved to Harrison Park from Leek CSOB in July, has had to be patient, warming a seat on the bench since the opening game of the season.

However, he made his debut on Saturday, when he replaced Liam Shotton in the 65th minute of the game against Lichfield City.

SPECTATORS wishing to travel on the team coach to Romulus on Saturday are advised to book their seats as soon as possible – there are 23 seats available at a cost of £8 each and the coach will leave the ground at 11am, calling at Trentham Gardens at 11.30am.

To book, text 07974 710181 or email andywain2@sky.com, leaving your name, telephone number and the number people who will be travelling with you.
