Tenbury United sign former Woofferton and Brimfield striker Chris Breakwell

TENBURY United’s new striker Chris Breakwell knows how to score against Woofferton.
Breakwell has signed for United after bagging two goals in his farewell appearance for Brimfield against his old club Woofferton in a 5-2 derby win last Saturday.
The 31-year-old marksman is hoping to torment Woofferton’s defence again this Saturday when he lines up for United against the villagers at Palmer’s Meadow.
“I am sad to leave Brimfield but I want to push on a bit more and have a change of scenery,” said Breakwell.
“Tenbury United are an excellent club – with some excellent players – and I am looking forward to it.
“Woofferton have now lost two matches in a row and the derby defeat against Brimfield will have hurt them.”
Joint-manager Aaron Morris is delighted to welcome Breakwell to United’s fold.
“Breakwell is a good addition to the squad,” said Morris.
“Our strikers are young and small but Breakwell is a big, strong lad who can hold up the ball. The derby game against Woofferton will have an edge and I think we will do OK if we can keep Danny Gower and Simon Bradley quiet.”
United remain top of Herefordshire League Division One after a 6-3 victory at Kingstone Rovers last weekend.
Skipper Mike Foster, Ryan Morris, Ian Patterson, Jack Moran, Dec F lynn and Lee Millichip all found the net for United.
“Jack Moran came off the bench and that’s the best I have seen him play,” said Morris.
“Kingstone got some late goals to take a bit of gloss off the win. We are conceding more goals than I would like.
“But we are a team with a lot of attacking options with Curt Pardoe, Patterson, Ashley Giles and my brother, Ryan.
“We have relied heavily on Ryan’s goals in previous years but we have good forwards and plenty of creativity in midfield from Foster and Dale Withers.
“Kingstone were the better side in the early stages and the pitch was narrow - but everyone came through unscathed.”
Mor ris added: “Saturday’s game against Woofferton will be our toughest match of the season but we will be ready for it.”
