A full compliment of fixtures and very few shocks, as most of the leading teams maintained their good form:

Under 18's Division

Broadway United Youth celebrated their final home match & penultimate league game of the season with a 7-3 win against Welford, which saw some terrifically executed goals from both teams.

 Over at Redditch, it was an emotional morning as Morton Stanley Rangers last ever match in the AEFL ended in defeat as they went down 4-2 at home to a spirited Pershore Town Falcons side.

At Harvington, the home side could do nothing to stem the tide as Champions-elect Inkberrow Eagles ran out 7-1 winners.

Under 16's Division

Badsey Rangers long unbeaten run since last October continued as goals from Charlie Banning & Nathan Bolland were enough to seal a 2-0 victory away at Bidford Juniors. This win keeps Rangers a point ahead at the top of the table, but they have played one game more than 2nd placed Alveston, who got back to winning ways with a 4-1 success at home to Broadway United Youth.

Crowle Searchers remain in 3rd spot but kept up the pressure on the top 2 with a 5-0 win away at Lower Teme Lions.  At Pershore Town, the home side could still mount a late challenge as they recorded a narrow 1-0 win over Droitwich Hawks. In the remaining game, Tewkesbury Town Colts made home advantage count as they won 3-1 against Ilmington United.

Under 15's Pool A  

Tewkesbury Town Colts 100% record continued with a home win over Broadway United Youth and they are still being tracked by Inkberrow Eagles who sealed a 5-1 return at Shipston Excelsior.  Across at Ombersley Road, Droitwich Cobras went down 3-1 to Alcester Town.

Under 15's Pool B  

Sheppey Swifts latest away win keeps them ahead of the chasing pack in the hunt for the title.  With Badsey Rangers,  Crowle Searchers & Westbury Celtic Youth all winning, it's going to be a very interesting last few weeks of the season.

At the foot of the table, Bromsgrove Meadows gained their first away win of the season at Ilmington United.

Under 14's Pool A

Evesham Juniors 4-1 home win over Bidford Pioneers means one more victory from their final two league games should be enough to lift the title.

Bidford Rangers travelled to Sheppey Swifts and returned with all 3-points while Lenches achieved their first away win of the season with a surprise 1-0 win at Welland Junior Lions.

Under 14's Pool B 

Congratulations to Welford Juniors who sealed the title & promotion with a 6-1 win at Crowle Searchers.

Next weekend's Malvern Town Wanderers v Shipston Excelsior match takes on extra meaning after Shipston's 4-0 win at home to Tewkesbury Town Colts means they still have an outside chance of clinching 2nd spot.

Pershore Town Phoenix remain 5th with a 2-1 home win against Littleton Juniors.

Under 13's Pool A

Central Ajax produced a good display at Eckington Juniors to seal a 2-0 win, while Bidford Juniors also picked up 3-points with a 3-0 home success.

Under 13's Pool B

Westbury Celtic Tigers remain top with a 4-0 win away at Broadway United Youth, which meant Evesham Colts 2-0 win at Alcester Town Rangers lifs the Colts to 3rd position. Lenches were the other winning side with a 3-1 final score at home to Welford Juniors.

Under 13's Pool C

Pershore Town Warriors completed their season with a thrilling 3-3 draw at home to Wychavon Wanderers. This meant that  Nunnery Wood Kestrels 3-0 home victory over  Littleton Colts sealed the title for the Kestrels. Droitwich Pumas 4-1 home win means they now need to win their last league game next weekend to secure the runner-up spot.

Westbury Celtic Spartans were the only away winners in this Pool as they won 4-0 at Bromsgrove Meadows.

Under 12's Pool A

Tewkesbury Town Colts emphatic away win takes them back to pole position with just one match left to play. Shipston Excelsior & Broadway United Youth both earned home victories with Alcester Town snatching a narrow 1-0 win at Evesham Robins.

 In a further shock, 2nd placed Drakes Broughton Rangers went down 1-0 at home to Lenches FC.

Under 11's Pool B

Under 11's Pool C

Moreton Rangers completed their season with a 2-0 win at Tewkesbury Town Colts. to seal 3rd position in the table.  This leaves Droitwich Scorpions & Shipston Excelsior to battle it out for the title and with both teams winning again, it's anyone's guess as to who will take pole come the end of the campaign. Littleton Juniors latest away win puts them into 4th position.

Under 10's Pool A
