Worcester City Youth secured a notable double over Redditch United on Saturday.
The Reserves’ fast-paced football proved too hot for United to handle in an emphatic 11-1 victory.
A first-half hat-trick from Joe Bates laid the foundations in a fantastic all-round team performance as Josh Hesson (2), Ethan Moran (2), Wesley Lewis, Josh Willis, Joe Clarke and Christos Gabriel also found the net.
Meanwhile the U18 Girls were 3-1 winners in their top of the table clash between the two sides – a result that puts City three points clear with the reverse fixture at Perdiswell on Saturday.
The Under 18 Boys recovered from going a goal behind at West Hagley to record a 5-1 victory. With the scores level, keeper George Bourne made a crucial save that provided the platform for his side to go on and win the game thanks to goals from Olly Berry, Tom Griffin, Matty Patrick-Rivers and Finn Syson that followed Tristan Webby’s earlier strike.
Berry was also on the mark with a stunning chip and was one of a quartet of Under 16s in the Under 18s line-up that achieved a hard-fought 2-1 Floodlit League win against Stourbridge, where Riley Keasey finished a superb team move to give his side the lead.
A dominant display by the midfield and defence of City’s Under 15s was instrumental in a 7-0 triumph as they frustrated Birmingham City Community Trust by pressing them at every opportunity. Goals from Jack Fisher (2), Archie Mears (2), Alex Watts (2) and Dexter Dudley-Toole were the icing on the cake of an impressive performance.
A Harry Rebbeck hat-trick wasn’t enough for the Under 13s who took the lead via Harry Stone but then let slip a 4-1 advantage over Herefordshire RTC in a nine-goal thriller, whilst the Under 13s were beaten 3-0 by Alvechurch.
