TENBURY United are reaping the benefits of their decision to drop down a division, believes joint manager Aaron Morris.

United top the early Herefordshire League Division One standings after Saturday’s 3-2 home victory over Holme Lacy Reserves made it two wins out of two.

After a difficult season in the Premier Division last year, Morris believes United have got their mojo back.

He said: “We could have stayed in the Premier but, with a lot of new lads and youngsters coming in, we decided it would be best to drop down, be competitive in the league below and maybe make the step back up next year.

“Everyone is enjoying it and when you win games it helps create a good atmosphere. I think we will be up there challenging.”

After a goalless first half, an own goal, a Chris Patton free-kick and a Mike Morris effort put Tenbury well in charge against Holme Lacy, who pulled back two late consolations.

Co-boss Aaron added: “It was a funny game that ebbed and flowed but we were the better side and were more clinical.

“The couple of goals late on made it a bit nervy but we deserved to win more comfortably than the scoreline says."
