THERE was nothing unlucky about the performance of Worcester City Youth’s under 12s as they ran out 13-0 winners over Sutton Coldfield in the Nerf Junior Premier League.

Jake Brookes, Ashton Doyle and Kyle Clayton grabbed hat-tricks in a convincing victory that also included goals for Rafe Green (2), Henry Guy and Hayden Russel.

South Gloucestershire RTC got the better in two of the three age-group fixtures with City apart from the under 16s clash where the hosts responded from conceding in the first minute to win 4-2 thanks to an Alex Watts treble and Scott Wheeler.

Two quality finishes were the difference as the under 15s lost an even contest at Perdiswell 2-0 while the under 13s were beaten 5-0 in Bristol.

Another game that could have gone either way saw the under 15s continue to improve with a hard-working performance in the JPL Trophy against Kettering Town.

Archie Bellingham netted for the home side who eventually went down 3-1.

There was also a cup loss for City’s Midland Junior Premier League under 12s team who battled from start to finish and scored the goal of the game courtesy of Jai-Jai Joyce in a 5-1 defeat at Wyrley Pumas.

There was cup action too for the Mercian Fortis Junior Football League under 11s side at Perdiswell Bobcats and their JPL counterparts hosted Stoke RTC.

The under 10s measured just how much progress they are making against a strong Cradley side that City played earlier in the season.

As a treat for their displays the under nines journeyed to and from their match against Lower Teme and Martley Jets in style aboard a minibus.

The under eights and sevens were also on their travels as they headed to Droitwich Spa Falcons and Catshill Stars to continue their development.

Ahead of their first meeting next Saturday, City’s two girls' under 11s sides prepared for their club derby by taking on Kidderminster Harriers and Catshill Cobras.

There were three defeats in the weekend’s senior fixtures.

Worcester City women and the men's reserves will be looking for improvement after both were well beaten by their respective league leaders.

Emily Young was on the mark in a 7-1 reverse in the West Midlands Women’s League Premier Division at Redditch United.

The reserves created numerous chances but had to settle for a Joe Clarke effort in a 6-1 loss at unbeaten Tamworth Academy.

City's under 18s bowed out of the Midland Floodlit Youth League Cup after conceding four first-half goals at Stourport Swifts.

Matty Patrick-Rivers found the net after the break but it was no more than a consolation as they exited at the fourth-round stage.
