Redditch 2 Wellington 1

WELLINGTON lost their first Midland Floodlit Youth League match of the season at Redditch when they failed to contain a lively home side in the first half, and then missed their chances when they fought back after the break.

The pace of the Redditch side caused Wellington problems in the early stages. They took the lead after 15 minutes when Steve Bell failed to hang on to a rasping shot. They did break the shackles for Sam McCoy to score a breakaway goal, but were behind again before the break after conceding a penalty.

Wellington seized control down the slope in the second half, but missed chances by Jason Evans and McCoy left their unbeaten tag in tatters.
