The majority of matches survived the overnight sprinkling of snow for our matches on 21st November:

Under 18's Division

Crowle Searchers Crusaders won 8-0 at home to struggling Pershore Town.  There was hat-trick for Tim Coleman, two for Daniel Kerr and one each for James Coleman, Henry Steade and Sam Tufft. All the goals came in the 1st half and the win lifts the Crusaders to joint top of the table.

It was a fiery encounter at Synder Meadow as Welford Juniors hosted Droitwich Spa Youth. Welford started well and could have been ahead after White hit the post before a lack of concentration gave Droitwich a lead against the run of play. However the meadow-men were on level terms after an incisive Akerman pass found Barnett who controlled well and coolly finished, to go in level at the break. The 2nd half saw tempers begin to boil over and the referees' notebook came out with a yellow card shown to a player from each team in an attempt to quell the antagonists. However the referees pen was out again shortly after, when a Droitwich Spa Youth player was shown a straight red card following a dangerous challenge on an opponent. To Droitwich's credit, their ten players managed to take the lead after a good finish and incredibly they scored another to lead 3-1. Welford's possession then paid off as Woodley scored from a well-taken free-kick but in-spite of numerous chances were unable to force an equaliser.

Under 15's Pool B

Droitwich Spa Tigers moved up to 2nd spot following a 3-1 win at Wychavon Wanderers. The Tigers cause was helped along with two goals from Lucas Edmonds and one from Louis Watson, in a game that was made all the more difficult by the strong winds.


Under 14's Division

The winning run of Welford Juniors was extended to six league matches as they ran out 4-0 winners at Badsey Rangers. There a hat-trick for Oliver Burdett and one for Sam Rosso, while William Millard collected the away team POTM award.

Under 13's Pool A

Newtown Sports Juniors are now 8-points clear of their nearest rivals, but they were made to work hard for their 2-1 away win at Moreton Rangers.  Henry Smyth gave the home side hope with a well taken goal but Newtown replied with goals from George Blannin and Joshua Dickenson.

The Bidford Juniors game with Badsey Rangers ended 2-2 as Rangers two goals from Alex Ozolins were countered by Bidford's super-subs,  Alex Oliver and Cormac Wolstenholme.

Lenches FC scored three 2nd half goals to defeat Tewkesbury Town Colts,  as Thomas Dixon, Lucas Adcock and Romeo Johnson-Williams found the back of the Colts net.

Under 13's Pool B

Welland Junior Lions earned a good point at Cradley Sports, as a James Hodgetts goal made it 1-1 at the close of play. Harry Ferguson-Walker was named away POTM.

In the Droitwich Spa local derby, it was the Vipers who came out on top, winning 5-0 against the Scorpions, on a bitterly cold morning at Chawson Valley.  Matthew Simms completed a very good hat-trick, with further goals from Jack Griffiths and Kyran Waterhouse putting the game beyond the Scorpions reach, but the losing side worked hard throughout the match. Nathan Hood was awarded the Scorpions POTM.

Welford Juniors Pumas travelled to Campden Town and secured all three points with strikes from William Gorski, Oscar Grisenthwaite and Maximillian Haudebourg.

Under 13's Pool C

It was a ten goal thriller at Peopleton Village Hall as Pershore Town Piranhas drew 5-5 at home to Meadow Park. The Piranhas goals came from Edwin Batchelor (2), Nathan North, Benjamin Wright and Ben Solomon but unfortunately we have not been provided with any information on the Meadow Park scorers, but we do know that the Master White in the Meadow Park goal had a very good game.

Another game with plenty of goals was at Bretforton Juniors as they drew 3-3 against Tewkesbury Town Panthers.  Goals from Harry Putnam (2) and Charlie Hardiman securing a point for the Juniors.


Under 12's Pool A

In the Worcester top of the table derby, Nunnery Wood Colts Ospreys were held 1-1 at Warndon Villages Colts, with an Ethan Turner goal helping the Colts to a point.

Alcester Town Juniors won 4-0 at home to Leigh & Bransford Badgers Orient. Town Captain Liam York bagged two goals, with a goal apiece for James Barnes and Joe Geldero.

Under 12's Pool B

The top two met each other at the Spiers & Hartwell Jubilee Stadium and it was the home side of Evesham United Robins who won 2-1 and inflicted a first defeat on Oakenshaw Lions. The 3-points were secured as Antonio Pirelli and Reagan Martin hit the back of the Lions net.

Badsey Rangers won 5-0 at Bidford Juniors, goals from Liam Andrews, Stanley Kirby, Kai Urbanski and Owen Andrews putting the Rangers in the driving seat.

Crowle Searchers gained a point in a 3-3 home draw with Ilmington United. Ned Harvey (2) and Tom Bryant were the Searchers goal-getters.

Tewkesbury Town Colts scored 3-goals at Moreton Rangers, Demetri Edwards and a brace from Alexander Roder giving them hope, but the home side replied with six of their own, as Toby Stevens hit four and a goal apiece from Kian Burrows and Oliver Hedges secured maximum points.

Under 12's Pool C

Droitwich Spa Kestrels won 4-2 at home to Broadway United Youth with goals from Daniel Eccleston, Luke Payne and 'super-sub' Alexander Shaw, who came off the bench to score two.  To make matters worse for Broadway United Youth they failed to fill-in any part of the match card before departing, so unfortunately a fine is on the way to Broadway HQ.

Two well taken goals from Littleton's Hubert Pufka weren't enough as they lost 4-2 at Leigh & Bransford Badgers Borough.

Worcester Colts won 9-3 at Tewkesbury Town Pumas, Charlie Mogg hitting five of his sides goals. Luke Ford-Thompson collected the Colts POTM.

Latest News

As we near the half-way stage of the season, it's worrying that we are still getting teams failing to notify us of postponements, not giving us prior notice of kick-off time and venue changes, not sending in match cards on time or indeed, not completing a match card at all. These are all things that with a little more care & attention would avoid extra work from league officials and fines being issued to offending Clubs.
