HARTPURY University achieved more than the draw they needed in order to take this season’s Herefordshire FA County League Premier Division title.

They completed their title campaign with a 2-0 victory against Ledbury Town during a midweek evening encounter at New Street.

The sides played out a fiery affair in front of well over 100 spectators, which saw a sending-off and seven yellow cards issued in total.

Hartpury’s opener, scored just before the interval, was via a thunderbolt off the far post from Luca Robinson.

The final ten minutes of the first period were made more challenging for the hosts in having to play with only ten men after Ben Febery was sin-binned shortly after receiving Ledbury’s fourth yellow card of the evening.

Joshua Bissett sealed the win and Hartpury the title with a second goal on the 63rd minute.

The Division One crown is still to play for with Fownhope sitting top but Worcester United sit six points behind with five games in hand.

Meanwhile, in Division Two, Ewyas Harold Reserves sit in a commanding position needing one point from their last three matches to win the title.
