LADS Club manager Danny Moon says that his side have 'embraced' playing matches away from home while the Herefordshire FA 3G pitch is being laid.

The club have won two and drawn one in competitive matches so far this season.

Their latest success game in the Bluefin Sports (UHL) Challenge Cup second round with a 5-0 win over Clanfield 85.

Lads Club took the lead within the opening 10 minutes when Kalum Wildig squared for James Hancocks who took a touch before finding the bottom corner.

Tom Dawson was in the action as the half wore on and found the run of Tom Bendall to slot home from the edge of the box.

Dawson was also instrumental in the third goal breaking up play before the ball eventually fell to Hancocks to tap home.

Bendall netted his second before the breaking running onto a Alex Lancett ball and outpacing two defenders before chipping the helpless goalkeeper.

The final goal saw James Fennessy finish from a corner to complete their rout and passage into the next round.

"The boys played well and did enough over 50 minutes and then took our foot off the pedal," said Moon.

Lads Club drew 4-4 with a strong Shortwood United side in their opening game.

Moon's side looked to have won the tie thanks partly to an Adam Hockey brace before the hosts scored an injury time equaliser.

They followed that with a 3-1 win at last year's runners-up Cheltenham Saracens with Bendall netting two and Liam Jones the other.

"We're looking good at the moment," Moon added.

"We drew 4-4 with Shortwood United when we should have got more.

"They are one of the stronger sides and we should have beaten them comfortably.

"Cheltenham Saracens were runners up last year and we beat them 3-1, so it's going alright."

"We have embraced it (playing away) and quite enjoyed it.

"It will mean in the winter when you want to be at home we will have a lot more home games probably."

Lads Club are currently seeking sponsorship to help pay the costs of them playing on the new Widemarsh Common 3G facility.

Moon added:"With the home games there are a lot more running costs and the new pitch has seen costs go up three times.

"Unfortunately with Wellington and Pegasus we are the unfashionable club.

"We have come from nowhere and are desperate to get a sponsor.

"The FA Cup is always the season goal, it would be the first time ever in the club's history."
