Saturday 21st May: Penultimate Week of the Season 


Football development continues:

Under 18's Division

Its still all to play for as there is still no clear picture as to which team will be crowned this seasons Champions.

The Cookley Sports and Broadway United Youth match finished all square at 1-1, a result that ended Cookley's outside chance of the title. In Broadway's case, they still have four games remaining in the final week of the season, but with only two of these fixtures confirmed it is unlikely that they will have enough time to fit the remaining fixtures in unless there is a late agreement by the teams concerned.

Crowle Searchers Crusaders win at Welford Juniors puts them into 2nd spot with one game remaining. Two goals from Tim Coleman and James Jones the pick of the Crusaders goalscorers.

Wychbold Juniors narrow 3-2 win at Droitwich Spa Cobras (goals from Kindness, McCardle and Talbot) lifts Wychbold back to the top of the Division with three games remaining, but only two of these matches are scheduled to be played, so again, the pressure is on the respective Club Secretaries to ensure that outstanding matches are completed.

In other news, Droitwich Spa announced over the weekend that they plan to enter an U21 side next season in the Midland Football League, an exciting step up that will provide continued development for their youth players. We wish the Club every success in their move up the grassroots ladder.

Under 15 Pool A

Droitwich Spa Pumas ended their season with a 4-2 win at Shipston Excelsior. The Pumas scorers were Elliott Frapwell, James Webster, Joseph Goss and James Palmer. The result confirms 4th place for Spa.

Under 15 Pool B

Droitwich Spa Tigers home win over Welford Juniors confirmed the title, Lucas Edmonds hat-trick among the Spa scorers. The win put the Tigers level on points with Evesham United Colts and so the league results between the teams during the season (not taking into consideration goal difference) has decided 1st and 2nd place.

 Tom Banks' strike ensured a point for Pershore Town Warriors at Broadway United Youth.

Lenches FC signed-off their season with victory at Nunnery Wood Kestrels, Leo Fleming grabbing two goals. Bromsgrove Meadows got a 4-2 win at Wychavon Wanderers, Harry Crane hit a brace with Max Hawkins and Sam Mee getting the other goals.


Under 14 Division

Alcester Town ensured all 3-points in a narrow 3-2 win at home to Badsey Rangers, James Clemons with two of the goals for the hosts.

Welford Juniors home win over Archdales '73 saw a well taken hat-trick for Matthew Douglas, which also earned him the home sides POTM award.

Under 13 Pool A

The last fixture in this group saw a 2-1 win for Moreton Rangers over Shipston Excelsior. The visitors struck through Oscar Hair but Rangers responded with goals from Finlay Griffiths and Harley Miller.

Under 13 Pool B

Welland Junior Lions earned a very creditable 2-2 draw at champions' Cookley Sports, James Hodgetts two goals making the Lions roar with delight.

Cradley Sports took the points at Droitwich Spa Scorpions, Thomas Crane's two goals setting Sports on their way.

Welford Juniors Pumas home win over Droitwich Spa Vipers lifts the Pumas up to joint 2nd with one game to play. Matthew Simms hit two for the Vipers but Pumas replied with goals from Modler, Chilvers, Haudebourg and Weir. The Pumas now face a difficult trip to Cradley Sports next Saturday in the pursuit of the Runners-up position.

Under 13 Pool C

Welland Junior Colts drew 2-2 at home to Bretforton Juniors. Ben Leah (Welland) and Harry Putnam (Bretforton) scored two each in a thrilling match at the Hill Centre.

Under 12 Pool C

It was end to end action in the match between Moreton Rangers and Evesham United Robins as the sides went goal crazy! Rangers thought they had done enough as Kian Burrows and a hat-trick from Toby Stevens gave the home side four goals but the Robins hit five of their own through Rhys Smith and two each for Luke Hulme and Reagan Martin.
