3:30pm Wednesday 3rd October 2012 in Sport
Church Stretton 3 Allscott 2.
A LATE winner by substitute Ross Ramuite ensured that Church Stretton maintained their 100 per cent home record on Saturday.
Allscott went ahead in the first-half, but Dan Tolley equalised for Stretton 10 minutes before the break.
But, despite the away side regaining their lead with 20 minutes to go, Church Stretton did not let their heads go down with Rich Broome drawing them level five minutes later. And Broome was on hand again to set up Ramuite with the winner with six minutes to go.
The win means that Stretton are joint top of the Mercian League Premier Division.
“It was a good three points against a very good side,” said Church Stretton co-manager Joe Leask.
“We have had a good pre-season and won the Hospital Cup against Ludlow.
“Sean and Alan Gough are an attacking threat going forward and we work hard.
“We have attracted interest from players who play at a better standard and will try and strengthen the squad in the next couple of weeks.”
Tenbury United 0 Wrens Nest 0.
TENBURY manager Colin Powell was pleased with his team’s performance on Saturday despite failing to score.
Both teams created chances during the 90 minutes, but were unable to find the cutting edge when it mattered.
The draw means that Tenbury are 11th in West Midlands League Division Two.
“They had the better of the first-half, but Tenbury had the better of the second and I thought that we created the better chances,” said Powell.
“We struggled to get a team together, but they are a good side.
“It is a tight league, and even though we are currently 11th, we are only five points off first place.
“Normally we don’t get going until November or December, so hopefully we can find fourth gear rather than first or second and then keep in top gear.”
Bishop’s Castle 11 Wrockwardine Wood Juniors 3.
BISHOP’S Castle manager Andy Green thought that his team could have scored up to 20 goals but had to settle for just the 11 in this thumping win in Mercian League Division One.
Luke Mellor was the star of the show as he grabbed a hat-trick, while Jack Wilson and Luke Hicks both got two goals apiece.
The other goals came from Jake Cintra, Mark Griffiths, Dan Green and Matt Jones.
“I was really pleased with the performance, we could have easily have scored 15 to 20 goals,” said Green.
“The team is playing really well at the moment and on Saturday we were bang on form.
“We have struggled in the last two weeks, drawing 1-1 against Morda and Rock Rovers, so I was pleased that we made up for it on Saturday.
“Everyone can see that we can score goals, so hopefully we can get another three points at Brown Clee on Saturday.”
Powick 0 Tenbury Town 1.
MARK Boucker scored a dramatic winner with just seconds left to ensure that Tenbury progressed to the second round of the Worcestershire FA Minor Cup at the expense of holders Powick.
Boucker sprang the offside trap to slot the ball under the diving keeper in the 93rd minute.
Powick had earlier been reduced to 10 men, but Tenbury deserved the win after battling hard throughout the game.
