HALLOW are the McDonald’s Worcester and District Football League Sunday Premier Division champions for the first time in their history.

They clinched the title with an 11-1 demolition of Malvern’s The Gloster Arms.

The division’s likely golden boot winner, 39-goal Bradley Birch, netted four times, Chris Conway added a treble and Shaq Tulloch a double.

Hallow, managed by Richard Bray, also won the Pershore Hospital Junior Cup this season 3-0 against Pinvin United and reached the Worcestershire FA Sunday Premier Cup final before losing 4-1 to Black Horse.

Secretary and assistant boss Brian Cooper, who has been involved with the club for 15 years, said the villagers had reformed in Division Three in 2010.

They steadily climbed back up the pyramid before missing out on the top-flight crown to Perrywood by just one point last season despite going unbeaten.

Cooper, who missed the title-winning game due to a weekend break away, said: “We’re over the moon. It’s a big team effort.

“We have some high-quality players who compete at a good standard on Saturdays but it’s also about the way the club are run both on and off the field.

“There’s been years of hard work to get us back into the top flight and win it.”

Bray was particularly delighted after 28 years with Hallow as player and manager.

He said: "I had been quite impressed by our achievement last season but this time we had a few new players and everything fell into place.

"The commitment has been second to none."

While Birch topped the scoring charts and ex-Kidderminster Harriers player Nathan Hayward proved influential, captain and former Worcester City forward Kyonn Evans and midfielder Jack Humphreys have been with the club since they reformed.

Hallow and Arrow Upton 2000 meet in the Baylis Cup final on Sunday at Malvern Town’s HDanywhere Community Stadium (6pm).

Perrywood won 4-1 at Arrow Upton in the league and will finish in third place if they beat bottom-of-the-table Droitwich Spa Eagles in their final match on Sunday.
