Pegasus win away in Wolverhampton as Budweiser Futures bid gathers pace
2:30pm Wednesday 6th February 2013 in Sport
Wolverhampton Casuals 1 Pegasus Juniors 3.
PEGASUS Juniors produced one of their best performances of the season to notch their third straight West Midlands League Premier Division win.
And the city side have added a former Hereford United player to their ranks ahead of a packed end-of-season programme.
“Dean Clarke has signed on for us,” said assistant manager Marc Jarvis. “And we have also been talking with Lee Mussell.”
After being on top for most of the first period, Pegasus scored twice in the final five minutes of the half.
Paul Allam reacted first to steer the ball home after Mark Davies’ header from an Adam Newbury corner was blocked by keeper Dan Ware.
And then Jack Lewis brought the ball down on his chest before firing home the second.
Davies hit the woodwork before Tom Dawson was dismissed for a second bookable offence.
But Pegasus were not thrown off their stride and man-of-the-match Newbury fed Kane Kahaki to lob the ball over the head of stranded keeper Ware from 25 yards. Casuals tried to use their extra-man advantage in the final 10 minutes but could only score once as the Juniors defence appealed in vain for offside.
Pegasus are still seeking support as they look to bag the £100,000 prize on offer in the Budweiser Futures competition. To vote for Juniors, visit facebook.com/budweiseruk or facebook.com/thefacup before February 28.
“If we win the money, we would seek to install a 3G artificial pitch at our Old School Lane ground,” said club director Chris Wells.
