Leominster Town's shortcomings punished at Trysull in West Midlands League Division One

Trysull 6 Leominster Town 1.

LEOMINSTER Town’s failure in front of goal was cruelly punished, as they crashed to a heavy defeat in their first West Midlands League Division One game in four weeks.

Even going in 3-0 down at half-time, Town’s play put them still in the game had more luck come their way in front of goal over the second half.

But Town failed to take their chances and Trysull did, scoring a fourth straight from the re-start that gave the Briarwood Boys no chance of coming back.

Mark Rusling put a dubious penalty away to cut the deficit, but a stonewall spot-kick shout was waved on minutes later as the good work Town did with a fine 3-0 win over Bridgnorth before Christmas got ground down.

The fall was cushioned by a man-of-the-match performance from Town’s teenage keeper Scott Dallow, his string of point-blank saves keeping Trysull at bay.

Second-from-bottom Town now face a season-defining match against fellow strugglers Blackheath at Briarwood on Saturday.

Pegasus Juniors’ Premier Division game with Wednesfield was postponed due to heavy overnight rain and it was a disappointing day, too, for the section’s other Herefordshire sides.

Wellington were beaten 4-0 at AFC Wulfrunians while, despite two goals from Ashley Millard, Bromyard Town went down by the odd goal in five against Wolverhampton Sporting Community.
