SHAWBURY United suffered another narrow defeat against Herefordshire opposition as they were beaten 2-1 at Hereford Lads Club.

James Hancocks gave the hosts a half-time lead but despite enduring a fair amount of pressure, Shawbury levelled from the penalty spot with Sean Evans making no mistake.

There was a sting in the tail, though, as Lads Club plundered the winner with around 10 minutes to play.

That followed last week's 3-2 defeat to Wellington and United down to 15th.

Elsewhere Tenbury Town saw their tie postponed against Holme Lacy at the bottom of the Herefordshire County League Premier.

Orleton reserves moved up to seventh in Herefordshire County League Division Two with a 2-1 win at Bromyard Downs.
