Evesham seal second league win of tough season

First published in Sport

EVESHAM Rugby Club recorded only their second Midlands Three West (South) win of the season with a narrow 17-16 home success over Cheltenham North.

But there is no saving the Vale side from a relegation place with four games left as they are 19 points off second-from-bottom Kings Norton and 24 behind local rivals Shipston-on-Stour.

Evesham host improved Shipston on Saturday hoping to finish the season strongly.

Meanwhile, mid-table Pershore were edged out 42-38 in a 12-try thriller at promotion-chasing Old Wheatleyans in the same division.

After going 19-0 down during a slow start, the prolific Martin Hope scored four tries alongside efforts from flanker Greg Shaw and Marcus Whyte as the Piddle Parkers had plenty of joy at the line-outs.

Skipper Lewis Dolphin added the other points with the boot against their third-placed opposition.

Pershore visit Ledbury on Saturday at Ross Road (3pm).

Bredon Star claimed the Gloucester Division Two points without playing after a home walk-over against Spartans. Third-placed Star host Cotham Park on Saturday.
