If it’s goals you want to see then look no further than the rampant Lambs at the moment. The 4 - 0 win at AFC Rushden and Diamonds on Saturday saw Tamworth progress to the 1st Round Proper of the FA Trophy, where we will play NPL outfit Liversedge. The scoreline on Saturday took our total number of goals for the season to 39 from 13 games played - an average of 3 goals per game! Dan Creaney scored another 2 goals taking his total for the season to 16 from 12 games (and 50 from 83 starts), while Kyle Finn and Alex Collard were also on target.
