BADSEY Recreation picked up three much-needed points in Birdseye Sports Evesham Sunday League Division Two as they secured a 4-2 home win over Charlton Old Boys.

The second oldest team in the league have been struggling but an Andrew treble and Ryan Attwood goal proved enough despite two goals from Chris Clements for Old Boys.

Matt Greaves fired a treble for leaders Alderton in their 3-1 win at basement club Tesco United, whilst Cropthorne and visitors Evesham United Sunday drew 2-2 as Warren and Letterse scored for Cropthorne and the Robins netted through Ashby and Sones.

Tewkesbury Town reached the GFA Sunday Intermediate Cup semi-finals with a 3-2 victory at Rising Star, but there was penalty shoot-out heartbreak for Ecosamba and Mickleton Rangers who exited after 3-3 draws at Leonard Stanley and Frocester United respectively.

In Division Three Stour Excelsior Reserves are having their best start to a season and it continued as four goals from Venditto helped defeat hosts Ambi Allsports, for whom Remeke was on target, 4-2.

Sun Inn moved top of the table as Price (2), Gill and Davies scored in their 4-2 success at Fortis, for whom Leyden and Rainey scored.

Visitors Stratford United led at Ashton 88 through Dixon and Davies goals, but the home side shared the spoils 2-2 as strikes from Denney and James restored parity.

Evesham WMC reached the last four of the Pershore Hospital Junior Cup after winning their local derby with hosts Bear 4-3 and they are joined by Cider Mill who edged out depleted visitors Broadway United 1-0.

In the Minor Cup Dragons reached a second successive semi-final with a narrow 3-2 win over visiting neighbours Bengeworth, whilst hosts Harvington defeated Pebworth 2-0 to also move into the last four.

In Division One leaders Bretforton Old Boys made it seven wins from as many games thanks to goals from Brown, Brain and Richardson which sealed a 3-0 success at Stour Excelsior.

Bellamy bagged the only goal as third placed Pinvin United beat visitors Inkberrow 1-0 and Matt Layton was the hat-trick hero for fourth placed Alcester Town in their 3-1 success at basement boys Bredon.
