Claverdon’s treble bid is still on track

CLAVERDON AFC will be turning their attention to a possible treble after securing the Stratford Alliance Division One title to add to their Birmingham Amateur Cup success.

A 2-0 win at FC Wickhamford, courtesy of goals from Mitchell Colby and Thomas Williams, secured the title for Claverdon ahead of Henley Forest on Saturday. They had moved within sight of the crown last midweek after an 8-0 win against Northfield Athletic, thanks to a Colby hat-trick and two from Henry Eddy and Oscar Metcalf and one from Steve Nollett.

Claverdon’s search for a third honour continues on Saturday when they head to Badsey United in the semi-finals of the RM Smith Cup.

Bretforton Old Boys were also celebrating after lifting the Worcestershire FA Minor Cup after a 1-0 success against Feckenham Reserves at Claines Lane.

In Division Three, Ben Rogers netted twice to help champions Inkberrow A edge out visitors White Eagles 4-3. Stuart Hall and Oli Wilkins were also on target for the hosts.

Inkberrow A finished nine points clear of second-placed Bretforton, having beaten Bret 8-1 away last Thursday, with Wilkins leading the way with four goals. Sam Bentley, Tim Lees, Sam Reeves and Ben Rogers were the other scorers.

Last midweek, Inkberrow Reserves marked their Division Two title success with a 6-2 win at home to Studley Rangers. Kieron Sheen netted four times, with Tom Emblem and Josh Walker adding to the tally, while Daniel Smiles and Anthony Wakefield replied.

Studley could still pip Welford for runners-up spot if they defeat Henley Forest Reserves on Saturday.
