Bromyard second after third win

First published in Sport by

BROMYARD Town maintained their perfect start to the West Midlands League Division One season with a 4-2 win at county rivals Bartestree.

Town are now in second place in the table, with only goal difference keeping them behind leaders Worcester Raiders after their third win in three games.

The sides were all square at half-time with Rory Worthing on target for the villagers.

Bartestree then took the lead with an own goal but Town equalised from the penalty spot before powering home with two further goals.

Shane Smallcross, Josh Weatherby, Joel Hobbs and Andrew Bullock, who was later red-carded, were on target for Town.

Lads Club are seventh in the table after travelling to Trysull and holding their hosts to a goalless draw.

But Ledbury Town have plunged to the foot of the table after their third defeat in three outings, a 4-2 home reverse against St Martin's.

Town can, however, count themselves unfortunate on this occasion with the two decisive goals coming in stoppage time at the end of the game.

Harry Murphy gave the Shropshire side the lead before striker Brayn Sewell put Ledbury level on 20 minutes.

Five minutes before the break, Murphy was on target again when he scrambled the ball home at the second attempt.

Gavin Hodgkins produced a fine finish to convert a cross from Sewell on 53 minutes and, as the game reached 90 minutes, a draw seemed the likely outcome.

Two minutes into stoppage time, however, Murphy completed his hat-trick after initially hitting a post and Shaun Melusi scored from the spot to round off the win.
