Sunday 06 May, 2018

The final of the McDonald’s Worcester & District Football League Phipps Cup, saw a 4-2 win for Sebright Arms against their fellow division 4 opponents Grosvenor Sports. Shane Shallcross gave Sebright a fifth minute lead only for Grosvenor’s Craig English to equalize three minutes later. Shallcross and Glen Sitch added further goals to give Sebright a 3-1 half-time lead. Gavin Barlow extended Sebright’s advantage after the interval, before Darren Palmer pulled one back from the penalty spot. Both teams gave a good account of themselves in a competitive final, played in front of a healthy, vociferous crowd at Malvern Town F.C. 

In the Sunday League, Korono need just one point from their last four matches to clinch the division 2 championship after a 3-0 win at Pershore Town Eagles. Joe Wood, Ed Jukes and Julian Hopcraft were all on target for Korono. Nearest challengers Eaton were held to a 2-2 draw by Northwick Saints. In a stormy match, which saw two players from each side sent off, Nick da Silva and George Loader were on target for Eaton, Andy Wright netting both the Northwick goals. Meanwhile, the division’s leading goal scorer, Matt Mclatchy, hit a hat-trick for Worcester City Wanderers who beat Warndon Villages 4-0.
