Saturday 12th November:                


The weather forecasters had predicted a total washout for the day, with heavy rain likely to impact on most outdoor events, so it was with trepidation that most coaches opened the curtains this morning to see what the day had in store! Fortunately Worcestershire and the surrounding areas appeared to have escaped the deluge and although it was a rainy day, the majority of fixtures went ahead.



Under 15 Pool A

Welland Junior FC Lions and Welford Juniors had to settle for a point each in a 2-2 draw at the Spitalfield ground; Charlie Day and Henry Kemp getting the Welford goals.

Under 15 Pool B

Ilmington United's Sean Bennett got his side's only goal in a 6-1 defeat at 2nd placed Pershore Town Bullets.

Under 14 Cup

High flying Newtown Sports Juniors are safely through after a comfortable win at Evesham United Colts; Gino Macy and Lewis Regan contributing two goals each among several scorers.

The Tewkesbury Town Colts vs. Littleton Juniors tie was tied at 2-2 at full-time and after extra time, so the game went to penalties, where Littleton eventually sealed the game 5-4 to the put them into the next round.

The other Tewkesbury team, Tewkesbury Town Panthers also went out of the cup as they slipped to a 6-2 defeat at home to Ilmington United, Ryan Kilminster with a hat-trick for United.

Welland Junior Lions are into Round 2 with a 3-1 victory over Pershore Town Piranhas. Jonathan Henderson (2) and William Hughes were on the mark for Welland while Ryan Buckland came off the bench to score for the Piranhas.

The all Pool B encounter between Welford Pumas and Shipston Excelsior went the way of high flying Pumas, goals for James Chilvers and Callum Durnall making it 2-0 at the final whistle.

It took extra-time to decide the Westbury Celtic Youth vs. Droitwich Spa Vipers local derby as Celtic snatched a 3-2 win with penalties looming. Vipers' Matthew Simms hit both of his sides goals but Westbury replied through Jack Farmer, Evan Ward and Jacob Ilsley.


Under 14 Pool A

Lenches FC  narrowed the gap at the top with a 4-0 win at Eckington Juniors. Callum Taylor gave the visitors the lead on just 6-minutes and the lead was extended on 22-mins when Finlay Price capitalised in front of goal.  Lucas Adcock grabbed a Lenches 3rd on 37-minutes and the game was put beyond doubt on 69-minutes when Callum Taylor struck his 2nd of the game.

Under 14 Pool B

Badsey Rangers' climb up to joint 3rd place after a 5-2 home win against Meadow Park. Goals for Harris, Ozolins, Powell, Deakin and Walczak made it a miserable morning for the Hanbury based visitors.

Moreton Rangers defeated Leigh & Bransford Badgers Borough as Toby Stevens hit five of the Rangers goals.

Alcester Town Juniors will be happy with their trip to Tewkesbury Town Pumas as James Barnes (4) and Adam Farrow (2) sealed a 6-3 win.
