There was a reduced fixture list, but for those that did play, some nice Spring weather was the order of the day.

Under 18's Division

With the Champions & Runner-up already decided, it was appropriate that the last game of the season should feature Inkberrow Eagles away at Evesham United Colts.  The fixture also had the added spice of it being a 'warm-up' to next months Cup Final where both teams will face each other again.  In an even 1st half, both teams played the ball around with confidence & created opportunities and at the break it was one a-piece. Into the 2nd half and Inkberrow were reduced to 10-players when their goalkeeper was sent-off but remarkably, they rattled in 5-goals to win the match 6-1 and secure a 100% winning record in the table; well done to the Eagles. However the likely suspension from the red card may impact on Inkberrow's Cup Final line-up.

Under 16's Division

Crowle Searchers challenge for the Runner-up sot took a dent as they were held 2-2 away at Tewkesbury Town Colts.

Under 15's Pool A  

Evesham Panthers did their title aspirations the world of good as they survived a big scare at Shipston Excelsior to edge the result 3-2 in their favour. This result was on the back of a midweek 2-1 win at Alcester Town, where the home side pushed the Panthers all the way.  With plenty of games still to go for all the leading teams, there may be plenty of twists & turns still to come!

Under 15's Pool B  

Westbury Celtic Youth go joint top with a 3-1 win at Badsey Rangers and with their final game at home to fellow contenders Sheppey Swifts next month, there could be some important training sessions in both camps over the Easter period. In the midweek fixture, Pershore Town gained a surprising 3-2 win at home to Welland Juniors. 

Under 14's Pool A

Welland Junior Lions 3-1 win over Sheppey Swifts leapfrogs their opponents into a final 4th placed position in the table. In the midweek derby, Bidford Juniors edged the game with Bidford Pioneers by 2-1 at the Big Meadow.

Under 14's Pool B 

Runner-up  Malvern Town Wanderers ended their season on a high with a hard fought 2-1 victory at Pershore Town Phoenix, while the midweek fixture saw Welford win at Littleton to secure a 100% winning record for the season, so congratulations to Welford on such a remarkable achievement.

Under 13's Pool A

Central Ajax have become the draw specialists as their 2-2 result at home to Eckington Juniors took them to five draws for the season. League leaders Alcester Town Juniors enjoyed two wins in 3-days as they overcame Bidford Juniors and Shipston Excelsior meaning they now need one win from their final three league matches to secure the title.

Under 13's Pool B

The only game played was the midweek match between Alcester Town Rangers and Welford Juniors where Rangers secured a 4-1 win.

Under 13's Pool C

Champions,   Nunnery Wood Kestrels completed their season with a 3-0 return away at Tewkesbury Town Colts.

Under 12's Pool B

Welford Juniors 6-2 home win means they now need just a point from their remaining game to secure the Runners-up position.

Under 11's Pool B

Eckington Eagles held leaders Bidford Juniors to a goal-less draw.

Under 11's Pool C

Congratulations to Shipston Excelsior who secured the title with a 4-1 away win at Welford Panthers. Dylan Williams grabbed a hat-trick to take his seasons tally to 54 goals and a Jake Bradley goal puts him on 22 with two games remaining.

In the two midweek matches, there were wins for Pershore Town Piranhas and Littleton Juniors.

Under 10's Pool A

In the midweek local derby, it remained 0-0 between Alcester Town Juniors & Alcester Town Rangers but the Juniors lost 2-0 at Eckington Eagles in the Saturday match. In the other match, Pershore Town found their scoring boots as they gained a surprise 6-2 win over Bidford Bombers.

Under 10’s Pool B

Sheppey Swifts 5-1 success lifts them to pole with one game remaining, but their final game is against fellow title contenders Ilmington United, so what a game that promises to be on 3rd May. Badsey rangers 4-2 home victory lifts them to 4th place.

Under 10’s Pool C

Moreton Rangers finished their season with a good win to secure a respectable 4th place, following a narrow defeat at Inkberrow Eagles in a rearranged match.
