Town Youth 3 Stourbridge 0

Town Youth made certain of finishing in third spot in the MFYL Premier Division South with an emphatic win over a hard working Stourbridge side at the DCS on Thursday evening.

Once again including a number of Under 16’s in their line-up Town took an early lead when George Kirby headed in after only eight minutes following a James Pomeroy cross which had caused mayhem in the Glassboys six yard box.

Ben Couki, Kier Mallen and Jordan White all went close as Town looked to extend their lead, but Stourbridge had their moments too with Town keeper Scott Martin pulling off a tremendous double save on the half hour mark as half time was reached with Town still only one up.

Town continued on top after the restart , and after George Dawson had seen his close range effort blocked Ben Whitmarsh doubled their lead on 69 minutes with a neat turn and finish from eight yards out.

Another superb Martin save plunging to his right kept their two goal advantage intact before  Mallen wrapped it all up with a  low drive into the bottom corner six minutes from time.

The previous evening  Rugby Town Juniors had clinched the Championship with a 2-0 away win over their only challengers Alvechurch who finish as runners-up.

Town still have two games left to complete their season.  They are at home to Redditch United next Thursday (April 13th) and then close with an away fixture against Worcester City on Wednesday April 26th..
