Town claim valuable victory

PERSHORE Town secured a deserved 4-2 victory at bottom of the table Pelsall Villa on Saturday to rise to 17th place in Midland Football League Division One.

After a goalless first half in which the hosts were reduced to ten men, Town dominated in the second period playing down the slope.

Joe Walsh opened the scoring after 50 minutes with a well placed free kick but Town conceded an equaliser against the run of play as Dean Williams struck.

However, Pershore continued to create chances and Pelsall’s keeper made several decent saves before Connor Trotman scored Town’s second, beating the keeper with a left-footed placed shot following a good passing move involving Zach Blood and Matt Chambers.

Steve Roche then scored a brace for the visitors – the first having been put through to slot past the advancing keeper after 80 minutes and seven minutes later with a right-footed shot from 15 yards having cut in from the left.

Pelsall scored a late consolation through Alastair Holding but there was no denying the visitors maximum points.

Pershore entertain Southam United in the Les James Challenge Cup on Saturday.
