Corinthian-Casuals made it two wins on the bounce on Monday with a resounding 3-0 win over Carshalton Athletic in the Velocity Trophy 1st Round.

The win follows a dramatic last minute victory at Harlow Town on Saturday that saw Casuals come from behind to win 2-1 at the death, courtesy of a Danny Cunningham strike.

A shaky start to their first ever Bostik League Premier campaign had seen Casuals pick up just two points from their first five league matches as well as crashing out of the FA Cup to lower-league Whyteleafe.

However, the win at Harlow saw James Bracken’s side leapfrog their hosts in the table and following the Trophy victory on Monday, sees Casuals in the next round where they’ll face Chipstead.

Corinth struck the first blow on the stroke of half-time when Jordan Clarke curled his shot from 25 yards to leave Billy Bishop no chance.

Five minutes after the break and they made it 2-0. Warren Mfula slipped around the back of the Robin’s defence to neatly slot home in the far corner.

Reece Hannigan completed the scoring ten minutes later directing his header inside the far post to give Casuals an unassailable lead.

Manager James Bracken was delighted with the result. “If we play like that every week, we’ll win most of the time. We were organised, compact and looked a threat every time we went forward.”

“That’s two wins in a row now and we can go into our next match full of confidence. We’ve not been far off. We’ve only conceded one goal in open play in the last seven games. We’ve also not lost more than two in a row, but perhaps we’ve had too many draws up to this point.”

Casuals face Lewes at the Dripping Pan next Wednesday.
