A 210-MILE round trip to Lincolnshire was worth it for Worcester City Youth’s under 21s as they won their Midland Football League Challenge Bowl quarter-final.

Two goals from Owen Oxley — one in either half — saw off FCV Stamford 2-0 to earn a place in the semi-finals.

One of Sutton Coldfield Town, Boldmere St Michaels, Quorn, Halesowen Town or Allexton and New Parks await.

City remain third in the Midland League Reserve Division after succumbing to three late goals in a 5-1 defeat at Coton Green where Matt Ennis grabbed the only goal.

The Midland Junior Premier League under 12s side enjoyed a 32-1 win over Stechford Lions.

James Thomas (7), Alexander Sadler (5), Obruche Agbeyi (4), Rorie Hanbury (3), Jai Jai Joyce (3), Ethan Roberts (3), Alfie Smith (2), Jack Bradshaw (2), Liam Chadwick, Harry Green and Harrison Condon all scored.

In the Nerf Junior Premier League fixtures that survived the weather the under 11s delivered an equally impressive display of passing and pressing against Wolves RTC.

There were 1-0 and 5-0 losses for the under 12s and 13s against Stourbridge who also provided the opposition in a thrilling 5-5 draw for the under 10s.

Encouraging performances were produced too by the under nines and sevens who played out even games with Kempsey Colts and Droitwich Spa Raiders respectively.
