Cleobury Mortimer 38 pts Bromyard 5 pts

SAM Sutton scored a try and gave a man-of-the-match display as Cleobury Mortimer blew away Bromyard to go second in Midlands Four West (North).

Former skipper Jon Britton bagged two tries for Cleobury, who gained revenge for a disappointing defeat at Bromyard earlier in the season.

John Hulland, Tom Leach, and skipper Allan Shields also scored in the match which was brought to a halt 15 minutes early by the referee.

Shields also kicked four conversions for Cleobury, while youngster Oliver Haywood had a maiden score ruled out because the referee was unsighted.

Shields said: “We scored almost straight from the kick-off and, even against the strong wind, we well and we dominated the game.

“We don’t want to lose to anyone at home or lose to a team twice, so we were thrilled.

“The conditions were tough and Bromyard weren’t showing too much and referee called a halt to the match with 15 minutes remaining.”

Cleobury have a tough trip to fourth-placed Cannock this Saturday.

“Clee Hill didn’t play last weekend, so we have now gone second in the league,” said Shields.

“Bromyard told us they played at Cannock a few weeks ago and the conditions were horrendous.”

Bishops Castle are scheduled to host Greyhound in the league this Saturday.
