LAST season’s treble winners Sun Inn maintained their momentum in their quest to secure successive promotions as they closed the gap on the Division Two leaders with a 5-2 win at local rivals Alderton.

The Winchcombe-based team scored through von Seckendorff (3), Price and Watts and the hosts netted through Baker and Bowles.

Quinton earned a much-needed three points as they defeated visitors Bredon 3-1 with goals from Brocklehurst, Okines and Dyde. Shearer scored for Bredon.

TDMS are still seeking their first Division Three point after visitors Bengeworth proved too strong in securing a 5-1 victory through goals from Lane (3), Jackson and Cook. The high school side scored through Howard-Naylor.

Goals from Knapper and Hancox earned Fortis the points with a 2-0 home win against Stour Excelsior Reserves, whilst Ambi Allsports won 6-2 at neighbours Avon Titans as Booth struck four times and Camm and Brotherton also netted. Titans scored through Deacon and Vizor.

Broadway United returned to winning ways in Division One with a 3-1 home victory over Tewkesbury Town as Jason Horsburgh (2) and Hopkins found the net.

In an exciting game at Shipston, hosts Stour Excelsior opened up a 4-0 lead over Mickleton Rangers with doubles from Harris and Fathers before Rangers staged a comeback with goals from Moore, Mills and Robinson, but the equaliser proved elusive.

In the WFA Sunday Junior Cup, Evesham WMC and Inkberrow progressed into round three with 8-1 and 5-2 wins over Plough Dukes and Cookley Sports respectively. Lewis Sheen scored a hat-trick for Inkberrow and Walker and Steele also struck.
