Cropthorne stun champions to reach final

Evesham Editorial 18th Apr, 2017   0

BIRDSEYE Sports Evesham Sunday League Division Two outfit Cropthorne produced one of the shocks of the season as they defeated Division One champions Bretforton Old Boys 1-0 in the semi-finals of the Express-Funding Mick Godwin Cup.

Cropthorne put in a superb performance and were justly rewarded when a second half Boother strike earned a famous victory.

Broadway United Reserves clinched promotion from Division Three with a resounding 9-0 home win over Evesham United Sunday through goals from Sallis (3), Steele (2), Sutton, Burtenshaw, Goodall and Berryman.

Stratford United overcame visitors Ambi Allsports 4-3 as Dolce, Beasley, Dixon and Smith scored for Stratford and Ambi netted through Dawe, Vinnie Booth and Aiden Booth.

New Inn Pershore sealed promotion from Division Two with a 7-0 triumph at Bredon as the treble seeking team scored through Ballard (2), Miller (2), Rushton, Moore and Lloyd.

Sun Inn recovered from a 4-0 deficit to earn a 4-4 draw at Badsey Recreation. Goals from Attwood, Benfield, Smith and Conway put the home team in command before the Winchcombe team struck back through Moore, Stratford, Major and Davis.

Stour Excelsior are guaranteed their highest Division One finish after a 3-0 home win over Inkberrow in which Godson, Layton and Harris all registered.

The Shipston side are guaranteed at least third place with a game to play.

Alderton and Bretforton Old Boys Reserves will meet in the Pershore Hospital Minor Cup final following respective 2-1 and 4-2 wins over Droitwich Spa Eagles and Harvington.

The first internal cup final of the season takes place on Sunday (5pm) at Evesham United FC where Broadway United Reserves face Bretforton Old Boys Reserves in battle for the Bluck Cup.
