Tenbury Colts defender Callum Spires breaks ankle playing for Tenbury Athletic against Misfits in Herefordshire Sunday League Division One North
TENBURY Colts’ defender Callum Spires has been ruled out for the rest of the season after breaking an ankle.
Spires was injured playing for Tenbury Athletic in a 7-4 defeat against table-topping Misfits in the Herefordshire Sunday League Division One North.
Mark Boucker scored all four goals for Athletic but Spires’ injury overshadowed the game.
Tenbury Colts manager James Turrell said: “Callum has been immense for Colts at the back this season. Our thoughts are with him and we wish him a speedy recovery.
“We know he’ll come back from this and I know all the Athletic boys feel the same.”
Toby Gittens hit a wonder goal as Tenbury Colts came from behind to win 3-1 at Ross Juniors Reserves in Herefordshire League Division Three.
Gittens scored twice - his first a 35-yard chip - and his second with a low drive from a tight angle as Colts completed a league double.
Kurt Pardoe also scored for Tenbury, while Lewis Giles was outstanding in Colts’ midfield. He dominated the midfield with Jack Moran and Bertie Hart.
Luke Hicks bagged a brace in Bishops Castle Town’s 3-0 win at Hopesgate in Mercian League Division One.
Central defender also scored his maiden goal for Andrew Green’s side, who host Brown Clee this Saturday.
“It was a much better performance and Mark Jones had two goals ruled out for off-side,” said Green.“Gaz and Alex Bromley played and we did OK.”
Holders Castle are scheduled to travel to Penybont in the Newcastle Cup this Sunday.
Green added: “We want to win the Newcastle and Bishops Castle Cups but I will be playing the lads who are not getting a chance on Saturdays.”
Adam Ray bagged his 11th goal of the season in Bucknell’s 1-1 home draw against Sennybridge in Mid Wales League (South).
Bucknell remain 10th in the table after stretching their unbeaten run to 10 league matches.
Newcastle, who lie fourth, were frustrated with last Saturday’s game at St Harmon postponed due to a frozen pitch.
Kieran Mulloch struck a post in Norbury’s 3-0 home defeat against Bomere Heath in the Shrewsbury Sunday League Consolation Cup. Youngster Niall Thomas was the hosts’ star man.
