LITTLETON’S rapid descent down the Midland Combination Premier Division table continued when they were well beaten 4-0 at home by Southam.
Striker Ollie Manoucheri returned to haunt his former team as he scored twice after coming on as a second-half substitute.
Although Andy Robbins’ side still remain the division’s leading scorers, their inability to prevent goals at the other end is a major problem.
The early exchanges of the contest were even with both teams wary of the other’s attacking abilities after 15 goals in the two games between the clubs this season.
However, the deadlock was broken in the 22nd minute after a mistake in Littleton’s defence let in Joss Holford whose 20-yard drive burst through goalkeeper Josh Gandy’s hands and into the net.
Littleton hit back and Stuart Hall’s effort on the turn was well saved by the visiting keeper.
The second-half followed a similar pattern with nothing to choose between the sides in midfield, but Littleton could not make the breakthrough.
Indeed, it got worse and in the 68th minute the visitors doubled their lead when Simeon Smith struck from close range.
The hosts kept on pressing but two further goals from Manoucheri put paid to their hopes.
- Wychavon Wanderers Under 13s lost an entertaining Ambassador Evesham League Pool ‘C’ match 4-2 at Tewkesbury Town Colts.
Trailing 1-0 at the break, Wanderers were 3-0 behind in the second-half before Matt Child pulled a goal back. Fabio Cerra then set up Owain Hann to reduce the visitors’ deficit to just one but Tewkesbury added a fourth late on.
