Tenbury United 3 Malvern Town Reserves 2.
A SETTLED side will be the key to Tenbury United’s season, according to manager Colin Powell.
Powell says he is looking forward to putting out the same 11 week after week following his team’s 3-2 home victory against Malvern Town Reserves.
“I think we have been a little bit indifferent as I have not been able to put the same 11 out,” said Powell. “We have been changing personnel and formations each game.
“We should be winning games like Saturday’s quite comfortably. “Hopefully we can start putting out the same team one week to the other and results will come.”
After trailing, United hit back with an equaliser from Dale Withers, before Michael Foster's headed in the winner.
l Newcastle went down to consecutive league defeats, losing at home to Bronllys 3-1.
This was their first home league defeat in 15 months as their defence of the Mid Wales South League title falters.
Manager John Goodridge was upbeat despite the loss, feeling that with a bit of luck the game could have been won.
He said the general performance was good as the team hit the woodwork three times in a 15-minute spell after the break.
The return of influential centre-half Richard Jones for the last 20 minutes following a knee injury was also a positive.
But late on in Saturday’s game, Newcastle were caught out at the back with players pushing for an equaliser as Bronllys scored their third for their first-ever victory over Newcastle.
Clee Hill United 1 Madeley 4.
CLEE Hill United lost at home to table-toppers Madeley.
After going in at half-time one goal down, United started to play and equalised through Scott Jordan after Adam Warren squared the ball to him.
Madeley went 2-1 up with 10 minutes to go and then increased the advantage with two late goals - one a 25-yarder was the last kick of the game.
“It was a good all-round performance,” said manager Wayne Whitbread.
“We more than matched them until the last 15 minutes and came up against an inspired goalkeeper.”
l Tenbury Athletic lost their away match to Kingspan 0-2.
Tenbury had chances in the first half but couldn't put them away despite dominating possession.
The second-half saw them having more chances with no reward.
The deadlock was eventually broken when Daniel Ridley passed to Toby Gittens who put the ball into the bottom right corner from 25 yards.
Kingspan scored again when Alan Wharton crossed for Toby Gittens to score his second of the match with a half-volley just inside the box.
Jake Gittens put in a man-of-the-match performance in goal and was rewarded with a clean sheet.
l Leintwardine Colts manager Chris Shurmer said his side conceded ‘silly goals’ in a 2-0 defeat at Sinkum Colts in the FW Peterson Cup.
He praised midfielder Danny Hicks who gave a hard-working display for Colts.
“We had another frustrating loss,” said Shurmer. “We are playing some good football at times but we keep giving away silly goals.”
