LEDBURY Town got back to winning ways to preserve their top spot in the Zzoomm Herefordshire Football League Premier Division after edging Wellington Rangers.

Ben Febery scored a brace and Ryan Pugh the other securing the 3-1 win for promotion chasing Ledbury.

After winning the League twice out of the last three finished seasons Clee Hill United ran out 3-0 winners after travelling the short distance to Ludlow Town Colts.

Elsewhere in the Premier Division there was plenty of goals at Allpay Park as a local derby between Westfields Development and Hinton Firsts with the hosts winning 5-3.

In Division One both Shobdon and Ewyas Harold kept up the pressure on table topping Lads Club Reserves with comfortable victories over Hinton Reserves and Bartestree respectively.

With Lads Club Reserves not having a fixture it was a chance for the others to catch up with their games in hand.

After last season’s success of winning Division Two Ewyas Harold are looking for back-to-back league titles and despite Bartestree’s efforts the title challengers overcame the difficulties to travel home with a 4-2 win.

Shobdon ran out with a more comfortable scoreline scoring five on their visit to Broomy Hill.

Recent signing William Bowen the stand out performer scoring a hat-trick as Shobdon chase a return to Premier Division football.

Division Two’s second placed Wellington Colts travelled north up the A49 to face third placed Tenbury United Colts in the divisions big match of the weekend.

With leaders Leominster Town taking another three points away at Lickhill Colts the undefeated Wellington Colts side had to dig deep to overcome a vibrant Tenbury team.

Callum Gittens was on form in the first half for the home side as they asserted themselves on the game giving the Tangerines a scare at half time.

Gittens scored three as Tenbury led 3-1 at the break but Wellington bounced back in the second period with the whole team upping their performance and contributing as four different goal scorers found the net enabling a remarkable 5-3 comeback and the title challenge remains on course.

There was action in the Avara Foods Herefordshire FA County Challenge Cup as Holme Lacy hosted Sporting Club Inkberrow.

It was the away side that came out winners of a closely fought contest which could only be separated by the single strike of Connor Thomasson at the edge of the penalty box.
