Newtown lost their unbeaten home record but should really have gained a convincing victory as they had 80 per cent of the play.

Newtown opened the scoring with a well taken goal by Lee Jenkins after seven minutes and other chances quickly followed for James Philpotts, Kris Denslow and Tom Ferguson. Beavers had two attacks and lacklustre defending enabled them to score from both and go 2-1 up at the interval.

In the second half Newtown again were dominant and James Philpotts equalised. Again chances went begging when Craig Philpotts drove a shot just over the crossbar and Tom Ferguson and Lee Jenkins were denied by the goalkeeper. Beavers scored the winner with minutes left when a Newtown defender sliced the ball into his own net. Man of the match was Lee Jenkins.

This hard-fought U12s match ended with honours even. Wanderers had most of the play in the first half but could only manage one goal, a good strike by the tireless Max White.

In the second half, playing down the slope, Evesham came back strongly. Wanderers goalkeeper Chris Styles made some good saves but could not stop the versatile Jabber from equalising. For Wanderers, Luke Butler and Calum Campbell played very well in midfield while James Lush fought his way down the left wing and the speedy Paul Jordan outstripped the defence several times.

Malvern Town Wanderers U13s maintained their 100 per cent record after an emphatic win over Littleton Juniors.

Only eight minutes were on the clock when Rob Leccese forced the ball home from close range after fine approach play involving Stephen Poole and Michal Dicapita.

Twenty-five minutes into the first period the visitors were level as a shot by the Littleton winger deceived the home defence and sailed high into the net.

Wanderers then took a stranglehold on the game and were duly rewarded with Stephen Poole's fine solo effort to give them a 2-1 lead at the interval.

It was 20 minutes into the second half before the home side added to the tally when Michael Dicapita caused mayhem from close range. Another clinical Dicapita finish put Wanderers 4-1 up before Michael Pearson completed the scoring with a typical venomous left foot strike from 10 yards out.

Man of the match was shared between Stephen Poole and Liam Harford.
