LUDLOW Town Colts’ manager Chris Waldron praised centre-half Aaron Hodge and Aaron Dovey after an excellent 3-1 win over Market Drayton Tigers.

Kiah Roberts opened the scoring, while Jamie Broome and Dovey were also on target for Waldron’s side in Saturday’s Mercian League Division Two clash.

“It was a great result for us on and fully deserved,” said Waldron.

“There have been numerous times this season where we have been in commanding positions in games and not seen them out.

“We were by far the best team in the first half and fully deserved our 3-1 lead.

“It was a great second half defence performance from the lads and I was over the moon with the desire and commitment to see it out.

“Aaron Hodge was made captain and played at centre-half and was fantastic.

“Aaron Dovey has arguably been the most consistent performer for us so far this season.”

He added: “The first four months have been up and down but I have enjoyed every minute of it. We have started to build a team that if we can keep together and get them every week we will be pushing for promotion next season.”

Toby Sivetar scored a hat-trick for Leintwardine Colts in a 4-3 defeat to

Brimfield FC in the HFA Burghill Cup.

Dean Harding netted twice for Brimfield who overturned a 3-2 deficit to book a place in the quarter-finals. Jabez Smith and Curtis Howell also netted for Brimfield, who played the match with 10 men

“We made lots of chances but did not convert them,” conceded Leintwardine manager Chris Shurmer.

Brimfield manager Duncan Morris said: “It was a difficult date for a cup tie because a lot of the lads were still suffering from the after effects of their Christmas parties . "Tom Everall was outstanding at centre back and was man-of-the-moment midfield maestro Dean Harding.”

Orleton Colts crashed to a 3-2 Jock Handley Cup defeat at Bromyard FC in the only other match in the Advertiser patch which survived the wet weather.
