IT was a night of milestones for Worcester City as they thrashed 10-man Roman Glass St George 7-0 at Sixways to go seven points clear at the top of the Hellenic League Premier.

On a night when Kyle Belmonte also scored a hat-trick, City’s third was their 170th goal of the season - a new club record - and Liam Lockett’s simple tap-in saw City hit the 100-goal mark in the league.

The hosts opened their account when Jordan Lymn finished first-time and he then set-up Belmonte for his first of the night as City began to click into gear.

Evans made it 3-0 after a sublime Belmonte pass just before the break and when Lockett added a fourth early in the second-half, City’s 100th goal of the 2023/24 season, the result was settled.

To make matters worse for Roman Glass, a second yellow card for Essa Sabally reduced them to 10 men for the remaining half-an-hour and City took full advantage.

Dylan Hart won and converted a penalty shortly after being introduced off the bench and Belmonte then tapped home for a sixth before his long-range shot from distance was fumbled into the corner by Glass keeper Elliot Jones.

Belmonte now sits clear at the top of the scoring charts with 38 for the campaign but, more importantly, the result means City are now just two points away from clinching the league title.

They might not even need to kick a ball again for the title to be wrapped up, as a Corsham Town defeat to Highworth Town on Thursday (April 4) would see Worcester crowned champions.

City now move onto their highly-anticipated first-leg of the FA Vase semi-final with Great Wakering Rovers on Saturday and on Wednesday night’s evidence, they are going to take some stopping at Sixways.

Ticket sales are flying for the contest, with almost 3,000 tickets already sold following the FA's decision to move the game away from Claines Lane due to the weather.
