THERE was a clean sweep of victories for three Worcester City Youth teams with two kicking off their new seasons in style.

The reserves enjoyed a resounding 9-1 win in the Total Motion Midland Football League Challenge Trophy over Cadbury Athletic as Aaron Brett scored four.

The other goals came from Matt Ennis, Taylor Cordell, Leonardo Milan, Tiago Ribeiro and 16-year-old Tom Mills.

City host Bartley Reds in the Trophy on Saturday at South Bromsgrove High School.

Mills was also in fine form as City began their Midland Floodlit Youth League Southern Premier Division campaign with a 5-3 triumph over Rugby Borough.

He set up two goals for Matty Patrick-Rivers who also netted four as his side bounced back from a 3-1 half-time deficit.

Harisullah Jan scored the final goal to cap an impressive display.

City visit Halesowen Town next Wednesday.

Worcester collected their first three Midland Football League Under 21 West Division points with a hard-fought 3-2 success at Lichfield City.

The visitors dominated the majority of the game but were indebted to some crucial saves by keeper Ben Clay.

A Josh Schuck header followed by a Jack Baker double gave City’s under 21s a three-goal lead before the defence held firm to repel a Lichfield bombardment.

They had lost their league opener 2-1 at Halesowen Town.

Clay was in fine form again but was beaten by a close-range finish and a penalty.

With Halesowen sitting deeper Worcester capitalised when Patrick-Rivers slid the ball calmly into the back of the net but it was to prove no more than a consolation. City head to Brocton on Saturday.

In the Under 21s Division, Droitwich Spa BG went down 3-1 at Halesowen Town and Stourport Swifts fell 4-0 at Chasetown.

But Kidderminster Harriers won 5-0 at Sutton Coldfield Town with goals from Bailey Fuller, Ashton Henry, Shane Lowth, Brett Taylor and Jaden Owusu-Nepaul.
