Jamie Charlton’s curling effort sealed the three points for Newark Flowserve in a solid victory over Attenborough.

Flowserve are building good momentum in the Notts Senior League Premier Division with three successive victories.

Joint manager Steven Venables said it was largely down to having the same crop of players playing regularly.

“We are getting the same players coming week in, week out, which has definitely been helpful over the past couple of weeks,” he said.

“It was very pleasing to get the clean- sheet. That is not something we have had too often in recent times so was an improvement.

“We have built a great team spirit already and having the same lads there allows us to work on things like formations more easily.”

The first-half saw few chances created for either side. Luke Boddy commanded the midfield with an intelligent performance.

While the second period was still scrappy, the game came to life more with an attempted cross by Billy Storey striking the bar for Flowserve.

Tom Potts saw an effort tipped away by the keeper, before Charlton found space in the area to curl a shot past the keeper.

Charlton had a chance to add a second moments later as he was played through on goal, but got too much power on his attempted lob and it went over.

At the other end, Nathan Burrows had to be on hand to provide a fine reaction save as Flowserve failed to clear a cross.

However, Flowserve’s solid defence was largely untroubled as they held on to claim all three points.
