THERE was cup disappointment – albeit in far different circumstances – for both Tenbury Town and Tenbury United last weekend.

United lost 4-2 on penalties to 10-man Feckenham Seconds, after a 1-1 draw, in the Worcestershire Minor Cup second round.

Meanwhile’s Town’s trip to Worcester City Royals at the same stage was postponed for a third time, leaving boss Keiran Fish fuming about the impact on their league schedule.

Royals neglected to tell Town of a change in venue due to rain so the game has been rescheduled for a fourth attempt this Saturday.

Fish groaned: “They said they had organised to play it on astroturf from 2-4pm. But of course we’d thought we were playing on a soft grass pitch so everybody had brought studs.

“We’ve been waiting three weeks to play this game.

“It’s pushed three league games back which means we are now going to have play midweek matches, which leads to some people not being available because of work.”

United, meanwhile, conceded early against Feckenham – who could only muster 10 players – and despite Toby Gittens levelling from the spot, they could not find a winner.

“We had enough shots to last a whole season but just couldn’t score,” moaned boss Aaron Morris after Gittens and Will Clutterbuck missed in the shoot-out."
