WORCESTER City under 21s came from behind to win 3-1 at Boldmere St Michaels in their opening Midland League U21 West Division fixture.

After going a goal down just before the break, City hit back with a stunning strike from Wesley Lewis before Liam Locket and Callum Devlin struck.

The Blue and Whites had the upperhand in midfield with Tom Allen and Lewis keeping possession and hitting Locket and Devlin with neat interplay.

Wingers Callum Harper and Myles Simpson were giving their full-backs a hard time while City’s defence was looking solid.

Martin Ruddock’s side were building well from the back and had two chances to take the lead in the first half an hour.

But Worcester’s dominance drifted in the final 15 minutes as Boldmere came into the game.

And on 41 minutes, the hosts took the lead when their centre forward was found free on the penalty spot and made no mistake.

But the visitors got back on level terms 11 minutes into the second half when Lewis’ 30-yard strike found the top corner.

With their tails up, City were attacking with real purpose as Christos Gabriel came on in midfield and linked up well with Allen and Locket.

But the away side almost fell behind when a cross found a player unmarked only to fire over from seven yards out.

Worcester went 2-1 in front on 71 minutes when Devlin’s shot came off the post and Locket netted the rebound.

Chasetown probed for an equaliser as their strong physical presence proved hard for the visitors’ defence to deal with.

But with two minutes left another pacey passing move between Harper, Locket and Gabriel resulted in Devlin slotting in City’s third to seal the win.
