LONGSTANDING Herefordshire rivals Ledbury and Bartestree played out a 1-1 draw in the Premier Division.

Those hoping for a repeat of the fiery clashes between these two long-term rivals over recent years were left somewhat disappointed on this occasion.

Gavin Walton eventually managed to break the deadlock bursting into the box minutes after coming on as Ledbury’s first substitute on the 70th minute.

The hosts led for just five minutes when hesitancy inside the box resulted in James Watkins heading home the equaliser.

The Herefordshire Premier has been split into two divisions to help complete the season.
