29 Dec 2017 - HALF-TERM REPORT - 29 DECEMBER 2017

At the half way stage of the season, reigning McDonald’s Worcester & District Football League Sunday Premier Division champions, Callow End, are on course for a clean sweep of trophies. They currently hold a one hundred per cent record in their attempt to retain their league title with only Hallow likely to spoil the party. The long time rivals meet in the quarter-finals of the WFA Sunday Premier Cup and a further encounter in the semi-finals of the league Baylis Cup is also on the cards. Callow End’s success is undoubtedly based on the scoring feats of Nick Macpherson, fondly christened the ‘Ginger Pirlo’ by his team mates, who has netted twenty goals in just ten matches to date. Callow End have also reached the semi-finals of the Worcester Nursing Sunday Cup, which they won last year, where they will play Hawthorns from the Bromsgrove League. At the other end of the Premier division, FC Malvern are struggling to stay in the top flight with just one win from their nine games so far. 

On the last day of the 2016/17 season, Prince of Wales defeated Clifton Rovers to pip them to the division 2 crown. History may well repeat itself in division one this season as both clubs are handily placed for honours. Also in the frame, but very much outsiders, are St Johns and Arrow, who will both need to find top form and rely on the aforementioned to drop points. Still seeking their first victory, Hallow Village appear to be doomed at the foot of the table, with Worcester Athletic and Claines seemingly contesting the other relegation place. Dan Parsons of Prince of Wales currently leads the chase for the divisional ‘Golden Boot’, with Lewis Barson of Fernhill Heath Athletic and Josh Homans of Arrow just one goal each behind him.

 

FC Korono are the hot favourites for the division 2 crown at this stage, having won all their eight games to date. Malvern Vale currently lie second, but with games in hand, Eaton would appear to be Korono’s nearest challengers. There is a real scramble to avoid relegation in this division, with just three points covering the bottom four clubs. Matt McClatchy of Worcester City Wanderers is the leading scorer at the moment with eleven goals. 

Just one point separates Express Falcons and AFC Mazak at the top of division 3, with Falcons having won the first encounter between the two sides 4-3, after coming back from 3-1 down. Jack Martin of Mazak and Josh Beckett of Falcons are the leading scorers of each club, but they both trail Callum Morris of Lower Teme & Martley who has netted eleven league goals to date. At the foot of the table, Powick are still seeking their first points of the season, with Freemasons Arms and Brewers Saints also battling to avoid the drop. 

In their first season in the league, Spa Rovers hold a four point lead in division 4 over fellow newcomers Colwall Wanderers. After a difficult first season in the league last year in which they finished bottom, former junior team Malvern Radar Youth have gained from that experience and currently lie third in the table. Divisional shooting star is currently veteran Darren Palmer of Grosvenor Sports who has netted seventeen goals in just nine appearances. Enjoying life at the bottom of the table are New Inn Sports (Malvern), who have one win and one draw from their ten matches to date.



17 Dec 2017 - WORCESTER LEAGUE ROUND UP - 17 DECEMBER

Meanwhile Worcester Saints won 5-3 at Lower Teme & Martley Reserves. Dylan Hart cracked a treble for the saints with Nathan Grogan and Clayton Homer also on target.
