The Kidderminster Hospital Cup took centre stage this morning as our teams went into battle with Ernie Pyke’s teams and from 11 games over the two competitions, we came out with 5 winners and cruelly, another went out on penalties. 


Perhaps the best result was Stoke Sporting’s 4-1 win against Kidderminster Division 1 side Wordsley Cutters, this despite a first half where the team couldn’t get used to each other in their brand new jazzy kit, complete with BDFL logo, many stray passes being seen all over; An improvement in the second half though and Paul Badger opened the scoring before the Cutters equalized at the back post from a set play. James Chaffe put the home side back ahead from a Ryan Cooper corner before Michael Griffiths scored from Simon Steele’s assist. Chaffe hit a late fourth to make it a convincing scoreline. Free scoring Alcester Town won 6-2 at Brit Wollaston with Ellis Kalach once again notching a brace, whilst Sam Bennett, Ryan Watson, Shane Hancox and Charlie Ward also netted. Alcester’s ‘reward’ is a tough trip to Woodside United from the top echelons of the Kidderminster Premier. Rubery Athletic have had a below-par season to date but they sprung into life after a week off as they defeated Stourbridge Athletic 5-4 in a thrilling game where Athletic came from 4-3 down with five minutes to play to win the match! Andy Court hit a hat-trick, including the two late goals, plus one each for Chris Skinner and Lee Davies. This might just kick-start the season but nevertheless, a great result today! Bartley Green Sunday had a comfortable 5-0 win over Sporting Club, for the second year running in this competition, Dom Strevens with a hat-trick and Connor Collins a brace. Hizza United were our other competition victors, winning 2-0 away at Wollaston Rangers thanks to Ben ‘Usain’ Briggs and Mike Young; Special mention to Ryan Ainge who turned the game when coming on in this game despite a broken rib?!


Luck wasn’t on the side of Sporting Rednal who crashed out on penalties to Alveley Sports (2-2 AET thanks to Lloyd Newman’s double strike), whilst Spa Athletic and Lickey End Social both lost 4-2 at home to Wyre Forest and Wall Heath PA respectively games which were tough draws. Vine beat Chaps United 3-0, a rare time when Chaps didn’t score a goal, whilst AFC Millfields were given a harsh lesson by Lakeside United who beat them 11-1 and gave them a lesson in finishing; Ash Roland’s goal the only bright spot on a dismal day for Adrian Godwin’s men. FC Bromsgrove meanwhile went down 4-3 to Cookley Sports Reserves, a game which was reversed to Cookley, due to pitch share clash issues with the Millfields match. We live to fight another day in Round 2 as a couple more sides had byes and don’t enter just yet.


Internally, the LMS Shield and Bridgwater Cups continue abreast and in Group A of the LMS, VBG Fairfield’s 3-0 win over The Grove was fairly routine with the visitors failing to have a meaningful attempt at goal; Richard Bishop, Ryan Molesworth and Ellis Blakemore all got some shooting practice in with the Vic goals. Northfield Athletic racked up another 3 points in Group D after a 4-1 win at AFC Northfield who despite only fielding 10 men, put up a tremendous performance full of spirit, hard work and commitment which unsettled Northfield that they put in a below-par performance. The breakthrough didn’t come until early into the second half when Reiss Brians netted and then Josh Moore got the first of his two goals. AFCN scored almost immediately (Michael Chaffatt) to get back in it. It took a scrambled John Jeyes goal with about 10 minutes to go to calm the Northfield nerves before Moore’s penalty finally closed the game out shortly after. 


In the Bridgwater Cup, Awkies Allstars got the champagne football going again in a 3-0 win over Stoke Prior, goals in this one coming from Chris Fox on his birthday, Ashleigh Tullett and right back Liam O’Connell. LPR won their ‘must-win’ game against Meadow Park by a 4-2 scoreline in what was a fantastic blood and thunder encounter, this victory keeping their hopes alive of qualifying for the semi-finals (they must win by 5 goals at Bromsgrove Brentnal next week to do so). Orrin Pendley scored two for LPR today, one an amazing 80 yard run and shot, with Mark Wilkes and Sam Smith also scoring; No details on Meadow Park other than Craig Barnett getting sent off for two yellow cards. Woodgate Valley won for the second week in a row after a 7-3 victory over Arrow Valley in an exciting game at Woodgate Valley Country Park, another new venue in the BDFL this season. WV took the lead after 16 minutes when motorbike man Jamie Sippitts (who arrived only moments before kick off in his leathers) converted James Parker’s precision cross field ball. AV drew level four minutes later when a clever free kick straight off the training ground saw Jay Russell left in acres of space to drill home inside the near post. Alan Beech should have had AV ahead moments later when he failed to connect in the six yard box, before stand in Valley keeper Paul Gascoigne pulled off a stunning point blank range save from Sippitts; The latter wasn’t to be denied though and he netted again on 30 minutes this time Alex Griffiths-Hughes providing the ammunition. Josh Fergusson put the hosts further ahead on 36 minutes with a curling shot before the referee played a brilliant advantage after Ferguson was abruptly fouled, this led to the muscle-man, Nick Wilson, being left one on one with Gascoigne and he clinically finished. 4-1 at the interval and a resounding home win looked on the cards. AV came out fighting after the break and got two quick goals back to reduce the deficit; Firstly on 53, Garry Harvey mesmerized Jake Chinn before beating him to slot home, then another shot on 57 took a wicked deflection off Wilson to wrong foot the keeper. AV needed to stay in the game and not concede again but concede they did, Ferguson notching his second on 63 with a low drive. Quick fire goals on 74 and 75 from Callum Mcdonagh (on his debut) and another from Fergusson after Will Price’s drive was blocked saw WV take the three points with a 7-3 victory. 


In the WA Harris Cup, Chaddesley Corbett faced a tough looking game at Callowbrook Green on the salubrious green meadows of Boleyn Road, but they passed the test with flying colours; First half goals from Ryan Moore who headed home a Louis Teague free-kick and Lewis Phillips netting a Dan Kings through ball gave the visitors a two goal buffer they never looked back from. In the second half, Callowbrook piled on the pressure kicking down the slope, but Chadds hit the ultimate sucker punch when returning striker Ted Baylis expertly converted a throughball from Paul Lofthouse. Callowbrook’s late free kick proved to be nothing more than a consolation. Chaddesley now face Bromsgrove Brentnal at home in the next round.


In League action, Thomas Brothers moved back to the top of the Premier Division table after a 4-2 win over Belbroughton Athletic, braces for Richard Tyler and Adam Hill. Meanwhile in Division One, another 10 goal game saw Bromsgrove United win 6-4 against GLA. Star of the show for the home side was Brad Bullimore who netted a hat-trick, including one from the halfway line, whilst Michael Hegarty (2) and Mike Grey (1) also scored. For the GLA, Joe Brooks got two, Chris Eacock one and Kit Wozniak with one. 


In Division Two, Rednal Social Club are proving very strong at home at Vineyard Lane and their 5-1 win over Rubery Juniors provided further evidence of this. Connor Wilson was their hero with a hat-trick with Ben Markall and Tom Windsor-Price also finding the onion bag. Robert Beadle was on target for Juniors. Bromsgrove Brentnal meanwhile had a 5-2 home win over bottom of the table Bridgefield, a result which moves them into mid-table. Bridgefield had started well and gone 1-0 up but Peter Frost soon cancelled that out before the veteran Scott Gaffney netted from the spot for a 2-1 lead. A second half brace from Kyle Williams and one for Ryan Eves sealed the points but another Bridgefield goal from a well-timed run chalked up another in the ‘for’ box (Jordan Ward and Luke Hancock the scorers). 


In Division Three, Rubery turned in another good performance beating Bromsgrove Corinthians 6-0 to remain unbeaten at the top of the table, whilst Chaddesley Corbett Reserves are 2 from 2 in the League after beating Laburnum 4-1. Adam Westcott with his weekly double goalscoring dose, similarly Gaz Moriarty on target, but also a new name to the BDFL Forde Mackenzie who netted and got man of the match at the same time. 


Next weeks matches see the Bromsgrove Charity Cup return, biggest match being Thomas Brothers playing CBH Fasteners (we believe there is a bit of rivalry in this one), whilst there’s a Division 2 Redditch derby as Hizza United take on Sporting Club Redditch. In the LMS Shield, Chaddesley Corbett renew rivalries with Bartley Green Sunday, whilst VBG Fairfield travel to North Bromsgrove High School to face Bromsgrove United in a key group stage game. In the Bridgwater Cup, Awkies Allstars and Rednal Social Club is bound to have good football played by both teams, but one suspects this could get quite heated and animated too – John Harris the man remitted with keeping them all in check! We’ll report back on everything next Sunday for you!
