Considering the terrible overnight weather, it was pleasing to see so many matches go ahead on 28th November:

Considering the terrible overnight weather, it was pleasing to see so many matches go ahead on 28th November:

Under 18's Division

Wychbold Juniors moved to the top of the table with a comprehensive 7-1 home win against Cookley Sports.  There was a hat-trick here for jamie Wall and further goals from Samuel Kindness, Daniel McArdle and two from substitute Brad Knight gave the game a rather one sided feel.

Under 16's Pool A

Inkberrow Eagles flew up to top spot with a 7-0 win at home to Tewkesbury Town Pumas.  The Eagles James Noyce grabbed a brace in this one along with 5 other different scorers.

Under 15's Pool A

Westbury Celtic Tigers beat Droitwich Spa Pumas 6-2 in an entertaining match at KGV Playing Fields in Droitwich. Callum Ford and Charlie Siviter were on the mark for the Pumas, but Tigers replied through Drew Tulley (3), Joshua Farnsworth (2) and Andrew McKeown.

Under 15'S Pool B

It was a game of two halves between Droitwich Spa Tigers and Nunnery Wood Kestrels.  On a  heavy pitch, the away side held a high line and won balls in the midfield which put pressure on the Tigers defence. The Kestrels had two shots on target and one wide before they broke through on the left and put a low ball into the 6-yd box which bobbled and passed by The Tigers keeper for Kieron Robinson to poke into the net.  The home side made a couple of substitutions and adjusted their formation. Within minutes, Oliver Boyden slotted a great pass to Lucas Edmonds who levelled the score. Kestrels hit back with a couple of good attacks which resulted in corners but the first half ended 1-1. The 2nd half started with Tigers going on the attack, winning a couple of corners and free kicks which resulted in shots on target but no goals. Lucas Edmonds was then put through by Mason and a return pass saw Edmonds score to put his side in front. Mason scored a 3rd later in the half to give the Tigers a 3-1 victory.

Kian Wigley hit Pershore Town's goal in a 3-1 defeat against Lenches F.C.

Under 14's Division

Pershore’s fourth away game in a row during November was a trip to Bidford, the hosts looking for revenge for the league cup defeat earlier in the season. The most influential player in the match proved to be a strong wind blowing towards the river, with Bidford enjoying the benefit of the conditions in the first half. And they certainly made the most of the wind at their backs, taking an early lead with barely a minute played. With Pershore’s defence sitting very deep and failing to clear the ball, the home team found plenty of space to mount a series of dangerous attacks from midfield and took every chance with assured finishing in the box. Bidford found themselves with a comfortable 4-0 lead at the break and it could have been more but for the post saving a fifth goal direct from a curling corner. The away side found it difficult to break out of their own half and were restricted to rare attacks but were hoping to take advantage of the conditions in the second period. The deficit was reduced from a loose ball in the six yard box after 10 minutes and both teams had a goal disallowed for offside. Bidford were always a threat on the break but the only other goal of the match came a minute before the final whistle with Pershore’s top scorer Matt Keyte on target for a late consolation goal. So a 4-2 final score-line with the home team deserved winners for their first half performance.

Under 13's Pool A

Ilmington United ran out 3-1 winners at home to Bidford Juniors, played in windy and testing conditions. Josh Angus, Joe Thwaites and Zak Cooper were the players on target for United, Alex Wilson got a consolation for Bidford with an exquisite free-kick.

Lenches FC put in a hard working performance at top of the table Newtown Sports Juniors but just missed out on taking a point, as a George Blannin goal sealed a 1-0 win for Newtown.

Moreton Rangers won 5-1 at Shipston Excelsior with a hat-trick for Caleb Yates.

Under 13's Pool B

Cradley Sports lost 6-1 at Eckington Juniors Eagles, Thomas Crane getting a consolation goal for the Sports.

Droitwich Spa Vipers made it 4 matches unbeaten as they earned a point with a 3-3 draw at Eckington Juniors Phoenix.  The Vipers goals coming from Luca Russo,  Matthew Simms and Charlie Ness.

There were ten goals to keep the crowd entertained in the Welland Junior Lions vs. Droitwich Spa Scorpions match.  It finished 7-3 to the Lions and three players got two goals each; Sebastian Whittle and Herbie Grogan-Southam for the Lions and Kai Harris for the Scorpions.





Under 13's Pool C

Welland Junior Colts took a deserved point in a 2-2 draw against high flying Pershore Town Piranhas. There was a goal each for Dominic Houlston and POTM, Owen Preece, to lift the Colts up to 4th spot.

Under 12's Pool A

The top of the table match-up between Stratford Town Colts Tornados and Warndon Villages Colts lived up to it's billing in a thrilling match at Stratford High School.  Warndon hit three goals through Rawlins, Silva and Turner but the Tornados took the match 5-3 at the final whistle.

Under 12's Pool B

Evesham United Robins won 4-0 to go joint top of the table. Arthurs, Hulme, Martin and Robinson bagging the Robins goals.

Under 12's Pool C

Droitwich Spa Kestrels made it two wins on the bounce as they travelled to Inkberrow Eagles and came away with a 3-0 win.  Joe Wilkins hit a stunning free-kick into the top corner while Luke Payne hit their 2nd with a low shot. The 3rd goal came from Alex Shaw, who showed some fancy footwork before hitting a shot with the outside of his boot. manager Clive Wilkins was pleased with the result and also very complimentary of Inkberrow Eagles.

Littleton Juniors played Tewkesbury Town Pumas and led 2-0 at half-time with both goals coming from Jack Witheford. Into the 2nd half and Mathew Cole put the game beyond doubt on 48-minutes to give his side a 3-0 win.

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 for league officials and fines being issued to offending Clubs.
