THERE were contrasting fortunes for Tenbury United and Tenbury Town last weekend in what – due to the coronavirus outbreak – could well be their final games of the season.

United ended a three-game Herefordshire Division One winless run with a 3-2 victory over Lads Club Reserves but in-form Town suffered a shock 4-3 defeat at home to bottom side Hereford City.

With waterlogged pitches having already decimated the Division One season, it looks increasingly unlikely the campaign will be played to a conclusion with some sides still having 15 games to play.

United moved back into second place after Si Newell’s superb 90th-minute volley saw off Lads Club, who had twice cancelled out strikes from Ryan Morris and Will Clutterbuck.

“The performance was very pleasing because Lads Club brought three or four first-teamers so we knew we were up against it,” said United boss Aaron Morris.

“They had a lot of chances and missed some gilt-edged ones but it was about time we’ve had some luck as fortune has not been on our side this year.”

Town, meanwhile, led 1-0 and 2-1 but lost by the odd goal in seven as Alex Lombardi had two penalties saved. James Lort, Alex Bright and Callum Gittens netted for Town.
