Evesham Editorial 26th Feb, 2018   0

DIVISION Two outfit Cropthorne reached the WFA Sunday Minor Cup final thanks to a superb 2-1 win at much-fancied Bromsgrove Academicals as Aron Letterese and Neil Taylor scored for the village team, who have put their poor league form aside in this competition.

Bretforton Old Boys maintained their quadruple hopes by reaching the last four of the WFA Sunday Junior Cup with a resounding 13-0 home win against Warndon Villages. Sean Brain (6), Sam Beddoes (4), Adrian Witts, Steven Edghill and Ryan Reeves were the scorers for Bretforton, but Broadway United were beaten 2-0 at home by Redditch side CBH Fasteners.

Holders Offenham Rovers are through to the semi-finals of the Mick Godwin Cup after a comfortable 4-1 home win over TDMS Harvington. Rovers scored through Jason Cresswell, Jake Andrews, Charlie Szymanski and Radu Nicolaita and Harvington replied with a Wallace effort.

Also through are Badsey Recreation who won 2-1 at Charlton Fladbury thanks to two first half goals. Andy Clements was the hosts’ scorer.

In Evesham Sunday League Division One, Mickleton Rangers took a big step towards survival with a 5-2 victory at Tewkesbury Town, whilst New Inn Pershore picked up a much-needed three points as they came from behind to defeat visitors Stour Excelsior 2-1.
