WORCESTER LEAGUE ROUND UP - 11 FEBRUARY

Sunday 11 February, 2018

There was a major shock in the quarter-finals of the McDonald’s Worcester & District Football League Baylis Cup, where Premier division basement boys FC Malvern beat The Gloster Arms 2-1. Jack Parker and Jack Shemwell were on target for Malvern, Matt Brookes replying for the Gloster. Meanwhile, a giant-killing act was on the cards at St Johns, where the Division One title challengers were holding cup favourites Callow End to a 1-1 draw after 90 minutes. However the Saints ran out of steam in extra-time as the visitors took control to win 5-1. Matt Andrews (2), Ash Millard, Adam Webb and Joe Wood were the Callow End scorers. Hallow also needed extra-time, before going through 5-2 against Upton Snodsbury, after a 2-2 score line in normal time. Kyle Belmonte hit a hat-trick for Hallow with Ben Harbourne and Zaq Hussain also on the score sheet. Chris Allen and Ryan Pugh netted for Upton. Perrywood completed the semi-final line–up with a 3-1 win at New Inn Athletic, Gavin Podmore scoring twice. The Wood will play FC Malvern for a place in the final with fierce rivals Hallow and Callow End contesting the other semi-final. 

The quarter-finals of the Southam Trophy saw Callum Morris firing a hat-trick for Lower Teme & Martley who beat Arrow 4-1. Worcester Athletic strolled through 5-1 at Northwick Saints, Macauley Austin notching a double. Hornets had a surprise 2-1 victory over high flying Eaton, Jacob Whittall netting both their goals. FC Korono are the other semi-finalists after a 4-1 win at Colwall St James, with strikes from Jack Hancock, Tom Groves, Joe Wood and Charlie Hooman. 

Mike Cox and Lewis Barson gave Fernhill Heath Athletic a 2-0 win against The Bell in the Katherine Rayer Cup and they will meet Drakes Broughton Rangers in the semi-finals. 

In the Kilbourne Kay Cup quarter-finals, Malvern Vale defeated Powick 3-1, Luke Bailey, Joe Dallow and Daniel Hunt their scorers. Pershore Town Eagles had a narrow 2-1 win over Warndon Villages with goals from Aaron Northall and Luke O’Sullivan. Matt McClatchy and Dan Harris gave Worcester City Wanderers a 2-1 extra-time victory at Kempsey Colts United. 

Back in the League, Division 3 title contenders Express Falcons romped home 9-1 at Brewers Saints. Brad Morton cracked a treble and Josh Benson-Smith a double. Masons kept up their challenge with a 5-1 success at GDL Athletic, Josh Bowen smashing a hat-trick. 

Colwall Wanderers are the new Division 4 leaders after a comprehensive 7-2 win at Worcester Saints. Ben Miller hit a hat-trick with Lewis Williams adding a brace. Elsewhere strikes from Tom Coultas-Morton and Ben Ladds saw Drakes Broughton Rangers Reserves beat Malvern radar Youth 2-1. Lower Teme & Martley Reserves won 3-1 at New Inn Sports (Malvern), James Francis, Ollie Eggleton and Dan Juckes their scorers.
