A full compliment of fixtures with some important results in the pursuit of honours:

Under 18's Division

We start with Inkberrow Eagles empathic 7-1 win over Bidford Juniors, which confirmed the title for the home side. Congratulations to Steve Emblem's team, who have been simply outstanding this season.  

Broadway United Youth missed the chance to close the gap on 2nd placed Evesham Colts as they drew 2-2 away at Harvington. This result means Evesham Colts need only 1-point from their last two league matches to secure the Runners-up spot. In the other game, Morton Stanley Rangers made it three consecutive games unbeaten, winning 2-0 at Welford.

Under 16's Division

At Lower Moor, 3rd placed Crowle Searchers hosted leaders Alveston and it was the home side who inflicted Alveston's  first league defeat of the season by 2-1. This has opened the race for the title right up with four teams now in the hunt for the championship. 

Badsey Rangers were the ones to gain maximum benefit from the Alveston result, as they won 4-0 at home to Tewkesbury Town Colts with goals from Nathan Bolland, Tyler Lupton, James Spencer & Thomas Benfield, taking them to the top of the table.

Pershore Town's 2-1 narrow 2-1 win over Bidford Juniors moves them up to 4th place, while Lower Teme Lions took their first point of the season with a thrilling 3-3 draw at Droitwich Hawks. At the Mileston Ground, hosts Broadway United Youth sealed a 3-2 win over Ilmington United.

Under 15's Pool A  

Tewkesbury Town Colts impressive form continued as they won away 5-2 at Alcester Town, while Inkberrow Eagles had a convincing win over fellow title hopeful's Evesham United Panthers.

There were clean sheets for both Droitwich Cobras & Evesham Juniors as they  both recorded wins.



Under 15's Pool B  

Sheppey Swifts latest win  puts them in a strong position going into the last 4 matches of the season but they still have Crowle Searchers & Westbury Celtic Youth in hot pursuit, as all the top three sides picked up maximum points.

Bidford Junior's trip to Bromsgrove saw a 6-3 victory for the away side, with Bidford completing their League season next week.

The local derby between Pershore Town & Badsey Rangers was a terrific encounter, with the final result of 1-7 certainly not a true reflection of the game.  Badsey scored four of their goals from set plays but the Pershore goalkeeper produced an excellent penalty save in the last 5-minutes following a deliberate hand ball which reduced the home side to 10 players.  

Under 14's Pool A

Evesham Juniors 4-0 away win at Tewkesbury Town Colts keeps them in 1st place while 2nd placed Drakes Broughton Rangers & 3rd placed Sheppey Swifts fought out a goal-less draw.

Lenches gained their first victory of the season with a morale boosting 5-3 win over Bidford Pioneer and it was heartache for the other Bidford side as the Rangers went down 4-3 at home to Welland Junior Lions.

Under 14's Pool B 

Malvern Town Wanderers rise to 2nd place with a 4-0 win away at Tewkesbury Town Colts; Crowle Searchers stay 3rd with a 2-1 home win over Pershore Town Phoenix. Shipston Excelsior's 2-1 victory over Littleton keeps them in 4th spot.

Under 13's Pool C

The top of the table clash between Nunnery Wood Kestrels and Pershore Warriors saw a 4-1 win for the Kestrels, who now lead the table by a single point.
