Leaders ease past struggling Evesham

Liam Moakes 5th Feb, 2020

LEADERS Stratford proved far too strong for Evesham as the Avonsiders were beaten for a fourth successive Midlands Two West (South) game.

The only consolation for Evesham following Saturday’s 55-5 home defeat was the fact they remain three points above second-bottom Spartans who lost 31-12 at home to Nuneaton Old Edwardians.

The visit of table-topping Stratford was always going to be a big challenge and it was made harder by Evesham’s growing injury list.

However, the home side started brightly and a try for Jack Jeffery kept them in the game at 7-5 down after 30 minutes.

Unfortunately for the Vale side, they were unable to sustain this level of play and Stratford eased to victory with a succession of well-taken tries.

Earlsdon picked up a losing bonus point against Leamington to move above Evesham, who dropped to tenth.

Evesham are in North Midlands cup action against Ross-on-Wye on Saturday (2.15pm), before returning to league action with a trip to Leamington on February 15.
