TENBURY Ladies picked up their first win of the season in Division One of the Worcestershire League, romping to a 4-1 win at Harborne Thirds.

And they will be looking to make it back-to-back wins when they play host to Stourport 3rds on Saturday.

Tenbury made the perfect start against Harborne with some amazing teamwork and skilful play between Abi Davis, Naomi Burgoyne, Vicky Jones and Cat Mumford leading to two early goals.

Mumford – with her leg heavily strapped from an injury last week – converted a penalty corner for the first with Burgoyne doubling the tally soon after.

The team’s injury curse struck again on ten minutes when skipper Davis was forced off with a hamstring injury.

It meant Tenbury had just ten players and Harborne took advantage by scoring with a penalty corner just before the break.

The injured Davis bravely returned to the pitch for the second half to help relieve some of the pressure on Tenbury's midfield and the strategy worked as the visitors regained their early dominance by winning a penalty corner which was converted by Jones.

Burgoyne then put the game beyond doubt with another excellent goal ten minutes from time.

Jess Banks produced an excellent performance in defence and there was a promising start for new goalkeeper Fern Bowkett. T

Table Toppers Tenbury Seconds lost their first game of the season, local rivals Stourport 5ths winning 1-0.

But it was an excellent display from the young side with the hosts winning courtesy of a penalty flick following three point=blank saves from keeper Amy Bufton.

Ludlow Men had made the perfect start to the season, winning their opening two games in the West Midlands Premier Division.

But that run came to an abrupt end at Bablake School where hosts Berkswell and Balsall Common ran out convincing 4-1 winners.

Gavin Hughes scored the Ludlow goal but the home side, without a win going into the game, eased to victory with Oli Gazeley scoring twice.

Ludow will be hoping for a return to winning ways when they host Bromsgrove at Much Wenlock on Saturday.
