There is a 2-week break for the majority of teams in the Ambassador Evesham Football League as we entered the half-term break. However, some of our teams were involved in the next Round of Worcestershire County Cup matches, so this we is where our report will focus this weekend.

WFA Under 18's County Cup

The all AEFL tie between Pershore Town Eagles and Wychbold Juniors was a feisty affair to say the least, in a game which saw not just yellow cards, but three red cards produced. Pershore Town's sole goal came from Ieuan Howells, but Wychbold's response of three goals takes them into the next round.          

Droitwich Spa Youth's trip to Evesham United Youth wasn't a pleasant experience as they suffered a heavy defeat, while the other Evesham team of Evesham United Colts won 6-1 at Crowle Searchers, Daniel Kerr gaining a consolation goal for the Searchers, who have now lost twice at the hands of the Colts.

WFA Under 16's County Cup

Pershore Town brought forward their fixture against Evesham United Youth to midweek and despite a 4-0 defeat, it was a great experience for the lads to play under floodlights in a competitive match.

Crowle Searchers hoped to put their disappointing league form behind them with a cup run but a 6-0 home defeat to JPL side Worcester City Youth ended their hopes of progression.

Drakes Broughton Rangers faced a difficult home tie against AFC Worcester Olympic and despite a narrow 4-3 loss, the 'Drakey' boys can take of lot of positives from their performance.

Inkberrow Eagles had an all AEFL match-up at home to Evesham United Colts and it was the Eagles who flew into the next round with an emphatic 6-1 victory.

 WFA Under 15's County Cup

It was heartbreak for AEFL side Sheppey Swifts who ended normal time level at 1-1 with favourites Bromsgrove Sporting, only to lose 5-4 on penalties. This was a terrific achievement by the Swifts who showed true battling qualities against higher opposition.

Drakes Broughton Rangers had the daunting prospect of travelling to Kidderminster Harriers, but despite a defeat, Drakes are another of our teams who can take great heart from a spirited display.

Lenches difficult start to the season continued as they lost away at JPL side St. Johns Colts.

WFA Under 14's County Cup

In the all AEFL match, Pool B side Wychavon Wanders produced a major shock as they travelled to Broadway United Youth and won 5-3 on penalties after the match finished 3-3 at normal time.

Nunnery Wood Kestrels scored two goals, with Matthew McDonough and Ted Taylor on the score-sheet, but it wasn't enough as Westbury Celtic Spartans moved into the next round with a 6-2 success.

Droitwich Spa Pumas couldn't produce a cup shock as they lost 3-0 at home to Kidderminster Harriers, but again, the Pumas should be proud of the way they performed against higher opposition.
