Kings came down to earth with a bump at this hastily rearranged game away to 3rd placed Ledbury. Kings were due to travel to Cheltenham North but as their pitch was deemed to still be un-playable and as their match v Ledbury had fell foul to the weather earlier in the month with the Herefordshire club without a fixture it made sense to rearrange and play this match.

Kings travelled in confident mood on the back of two good results but soon came up against different and tougher opposition. Ledbury were stronger in both their forwards and backs and although Kings battled hard the home side made every chance count and walked away with a well deserved victory. Ben Manners being the only Norton player to get his name on the scoreboard with a solitary penalty.

Kings now have a battle on their hands as they lie precariously close to the 2nd to bottom relegation spot and have on paper a much harder run in than Shipson on Stour who have just 3 points less with six games to play of which four are at home including Kings Norton! Whereas Kings have seven matches to play and to travel to Old Wheatleyans on Saturday next before facing 2nd placed promotion favourites Old Yardleians at home.
