Stratford Editorial 17th Oct, 2019   0

GSH UNITED returned to the top of the Stratford Alliance after previous pace-setters Claverdon suffered their first defeat of the season.

Promoted GSH continued their excellent start to Division One by sweeping aside visitors Feckenham Reserves 4-1, while Claverdon were thumped 5-0 at South Redditch Athletic.

Oli Wilkins netted twice for GSH with Dan Sill and sub Jack Bate also on target. Daniel Smiles replied for Feckenham.

GSH now sit three points clear of Claverdon, who have a game in hand.

Benjamin Higgins bagged a hat-trick for South Redditch, while Gary Harvey and Joshua Joseph Russell were also on the scoresheet.

FC Wickhamford, who had won the Hospital Cup the previous midweek, completed an excellent week by climbing into third place following a 3-2 win at AFC Stratford Town. Sam Beddoes (2) and Jamie Lee were the WIcks’ marksmen, with Bayley Pollard and sub Joshia Barbor on target for Town.

Bretforton Old Boys, Inkberrow Academy and Shipston Excelsior Colts all took advantage of leaders Redditch Borough’s inactivity to move within three points of the pace-setters in Division Two.

Bret powered to an 8-1 victory at home to bottom of the table Blockley Sports, Josh Keen netting for Sports, while Inkberrow were 2-0 winners at Tysoe United courtesy of goals from Steve McManus and Charlie Teesdale.

Shipston Colts edged out their reserves 3-2 at Long Compton. George Redshaw (2) and Owain Jones scored for the Colts, with Adam Foskett and Jamie Shurmer on target for the reserves.

FISSC Reserves lie in fourth place after battling to a 4-2 win at AFC Alcester Town. Ollie Ashley-Clarke, Connor Griffiths, Sebastian Horne and an own goal completed their goal tally, with Matthew Attinson and Cameron Parker netting for Alcester.
