Uncle Andy takes family honours
2:38pm Thursday 13th March 2014 in Sport
FAMILY honour went with seniority in a Herefordshire League Premier Division tale of two goalkeepers.
Forty-one-year-old Andy Taylor lined up between the posts for Hinton with his nephew Daniel Taylor at the opposite end for Pegasus Reserves.
"This was the first time we have faced each other on the pitch, and I was relishing the opportunity to help my team put one over on Daniel," said Andy.
And that was exactly what happened with Hinton winning 2-1 with fine lobs from Luke Semple and Brad Matthews. Ashley Rumsey replied for Pegasus.
"Then a superb defensive performance kept the scoreline at 2-1 when Pegasus were pushing for a late equaliser," said Andy.
"Daniel had a good game, and I was fortunate to be playing in a very good team and a superb defence."
Leominster Town, however, look favourites for the title as they have now moved into second place, leapfrogging Wellington Reserves after a 4-1 win.
Dan Sharp (2), Callum Brennan and Marcus Jones scored for Leominster who trail Harold by two points but with three games in hand.
Shobdon are in fourth place after a 3-0 success against Westfields Reserves with Richard Morgan (2) and Jack Brazier bagging the goals for the villagers.
