WALL finished the calendar year on a high as they picked up a deserved three points.

They opened the scoring when Sy Howards powerful shot was only parried by the keeper, allowing Michael Kearns to slide the ball home.

However, St James equalised direct from a free kick just before the break.

Hole started the second half stronger and went back ahead through David Amaral’s superb 25-yard curler.

The lead was then extended when Howard converted his own rebound, having see his initial shot well saved by the keeper.

Outstanding for Wall was Ashley Wells.
