Capewell is the hat-trick hero

HARRY CAPEWELL scored a hat-trick to help table-toppers Redditch defeat Pershore 5-4 in their West Midlands Division One fixture.

Pete Dawson and Will Moss were also on target for the visitors.

Pershore’s goals came from Ed Deacon (2) and Anthony Handley (2).

The Kingfishers, now unbeaten in seven matches, have a one-point lead over second placed Leamington.

On Saturday Redditch host Newtown.

Andrew Brooks hit two goals as Redditch 2nds edged out visitors West Bromwich 3-2 in West Midlands Division Two.

George Haslam was the other scorer for the Kingfishers, who travel to Much Wenlock to face Ludlow on Saturday.

Captain Sean McCaughey led by example with two goals as Redditch Badgers defeated Bromsgrove 3-1 on Saturday.

The teams were evenly matched with no adults playing and lots of under 13 players fielded.

Redditch were quickly out of the blocks and moved the ball well, in particular Jack Drysdale on the right wing who fired a ball into the D which was nicely finished by McCaughey.

The home team maintained their pressure and it was McCaughey again who was on hand to double their advantage.

Bromsgrove hit back and looked lively on the wings, but it was Redditch who scored the crucial third goal when Tom Staunton drove the ball from defence into Bromsgrove’s D to set up centre back Joe Cardy to convert.

Bromsgrove were rewarded for their tough tackling and effort with a goal late in the second half but there was no stopping Redditch Badgers continuing their winning streak, which they will bid to extend at Worcester on Saturday.
