LEOMINSTER remain in third place in the Davis Wood North Conference after a rare goalless draw at Yate.

Defences were on top throughout to prevent any of the chances created being taken.

Jack Castle was named as Leominster’s man-of-the-match for an outstanding defensive display.

Hereford were unfortunate to emerge with nothing to show from a hard game with joint leaders Cheltenham 2nd after going down 2-1 at home.

Mike Broady had an excellent game for Hereford in attack and deservedly put the home side ahead when he converted a corner which he had earned himself.

Cheltenham levelled before the break but Hereford could have regained the lead with their first attack of the second period when Rob Preston slid the ball wide of the gaping goal.

Cheltenham kept up the pressure and it paid off when a free man slipped the ball past Hereford keeper Jim Wallis.

Ross remain second in De Cymru and The Marches Two after a 3-2 home success over Pembroke County.

Man-of-the match Sam Warner fired Ross ahead with George Goldsmith saving a Pembroke penalty flick to preserve the lead. Pembroke did level, however, before Phil Evans got the final touch to give the home side an interval advantage.

A Kristian Franklin strike extended the lead and Ross held on for the points despite a late Pembroke goal.

Hereford 2nd stay top of Marches One after a ruthless 6-0 victory over Cirencester 3rd.

Two goals from Duncan Tindle inside the first 10 minutes set Hereford on the victory trail with Richard Brown and Dan Makaruk also hitting the target before the interval.

Tindle completed his hat-trick with a fierce shot from distance in the second period when Mark Griffiths finished the scoring with his maiden goal for the club.

Leominster 2nd were beaten 6-2 at home by Newent 2nd but, in Marches Two, Hereford 3rd won 6-2 at Lansdown 5th while Ross 2nd were beaten 4-2 at Newent 3rd.
