Aaron Morris scores twice for Tenbury United in 4-2 home win over rivals Woofferton in Herefordshire League Division One.
Tenbury United 4 Woofferton 2
AARON Morris scored twice from the penalty-spot as Tenbury United roared to a sixth straight win in Herefordshire League Division One.
Dale Withers and George Pearson also netted for table-topping United in a hard-fought local derby at Palmer’s Meadow.
Skipper Mike Foster was United’s man-of-thematch, while striker Danny Gower bagged a brace for Woofferton.
Joint-boss Aaron Morris said: “Woofferton are a decent side and have got some very good players but we were always ahead and in control.
“When we were 2-1 up Simon Bradley hit the bar and we went straight up the other end and scored to make it 3-1.”
Former Woofferton striker Chris Breakwell came off the bench for United, who had Kurt Pardoe and Ashley Giles missing. Woofferton player-secretary Dave ‘Magnum’ Thomas said Steve Chadd’s men felt a draw would have been a fair result.
Thomas added: “We’ve now conceded three penalties in just two games and we have got to be more careful.”
Morris thanked former Ludlow Town stalwarts Mark Evans and Bob Leach for sponsoring last weekend’s match.
United are without a league match this Saturday but are hoping to arrange a friendly.
