AN inspirational display from livewire Ashley Giles led Tenbury United to an emphatic home victory at Palmer’s Meadow.
Skipper Mike Foster and George Pearson bagged braces for Tenbury, who are now top of the Herefordshire League Division One after four successive wins.
Free-scoring Tenbury have now bagged 27 league goals and are hoping to sign Brimfield’s Chris Breakwell before this Saturday’s match against Kingstone Rovers.
“Last Saturday’s display was the best we have played all season and Ashley Giles was superb,” said United’s Aaron Morris.
“Ashley is only a young lad but he plays very maturely and was in brilliant form.”
Morris, Dale Withers, Ian Patterson, Kurt Pardoe and Ryan Morris also scored for Tenbury, who led 4-1 at the break against Holme Lacy.
“We were fortunate to win against Orleton Colts a few weeks ago and we know that Ledbury Town Reserves will be a very tough team in this league,” said Morris.
“It has been a long time since Tenbury United have topped a league.”
Lacy opened the scoring through Tom Grabczak in last Saturday’s match and Rushade Brown grabbed a late consolation goal.
Lacy chairman Ben Hince said: “Tenbury are a superb side and played some very quick, attacking football, which we struggled to deal with.”
