The newcomers kicked off their season against last year’s champions Bromyard FC. Bromyard showed the quality that took them to the title last season and took a comfortable victory with goals from Stewart Graham, Paul Burton, John Phillips and an own goal. Weston suffered from late withdrawals prior to the game but did grab a consolation goal. The final score was Bromyard 7 Weston 1.
The second week saw last year’s champions take on last year’s runners up, Fownhope Sunday, in the early kick off. The game was a tight affair with Bromyard sneaking a 2-1 win, Stewart Graham and Paul Burton with the goals for Bromyard, Martin Jones with the goal for Fownhope. The other fixture this week was a local derby between Ross Juniors and Weston in what proved to be another tight affair. The final result was 1-1 with Shane Bruton grabbing the goal for Weston before an own goal gave both teams a share of the points.
In the third round of fixtures Bromyard took on Ross and made it three wins from three with a 2-0 victory. Stewart Graham scored his fourth goal in three games with Ceri Owen grabbing the other.
Next up is Fownhope A v Weston and Fownhope Sunday v Ross Juniors on Sunday 6th July. Games kick off at 11:15 and 13:45 respectively at the Hereford Academy so why not get down and support the teams?
