FRUSTRATED Ludlow FC boss Chris Waldron says his side must quickly get up to speed in the new Salop Leisure League after defeat in their second game of the season. Ludlow followed up a 4-0 opening-day win over Albrighton by losing 3-2 at home to Steam Wagon United despite a Tom Everall brace pulling them back from 2-0 down. “We made too many mistakes and they punished us,” said Waldron. “They wanted it a bit more than us and although injuries didn’t help, that’s no excuse – they deserved the win.” Ludlow lost centre-half Matt Goode in the warm-up then Sean Evans and Kieran Dovey to hamstring pulls, with all three set to miss Saturday’s home game against AFC Bridgnorth Development. “They are important players for us so other lads are going to have to step up,” added Waldron. “We need to bounce back and perform like we can because we haven’t done so as yet.” Church Stretton are still awaiting their first point after suffering a second straight single-goal defeat in a thrilling 5-4 loss to Shrewsbury Juniors. They fought back from 2-0 down at half-time to lead 4-3 with ten minutes left, thanks to goals from James Hill (2), Matt Cole and Dean Richards, only for Shrewsbury to score twice late on. In the Herefordshire League, Clee Hill United – reigning Premier Division champions from two years ago – beat Westfields Reserves 3-1 as Craig Breakwell, Josh Carpenter and Liam Whitbread netted. Ludlow Colts let slip a 3-1 lead to draw 3-3 in an entertaining affair at Holme Lacy. Jabez Smith latched on to a flick from Colts captain Luke Hicks to slot Colts ahead and, although Lacy levelled, Hicks’ sublime chip restored Colts’ lead. Hicks netted his second from the penalty spot after Smith was fouled while rounding the keeper but Lacy scored twice in quick succession to earn a point. In Division One, both Tenbury sides recorded thumping opening-day wins as Declan Bright scored all five in Town’s 5-0 win at Hereford Pegasus Colts. Lewis Moseley (2), Mark Foster and Mark Boucker scored as Tenbury United beat Fownhope 4-1 while Ludlow Colts Reserves lost 2-0 at home to Ross Juniors. Woofferton lost 5-2 to Belmont Rangers in Division Two.
