THREE players have departed Littleton ahead of Saturday's derby date with Pershore Town (3pm) – but a new face has made an immediate impact.

Striker Alfie Bloomer has moved on to Fairfield Villa, Sam Hart has joined Cadbury Athletic and Luke Rowlands will not be involved due to personal reasons.

However, having snapped up target Adam Garmson from Black Country Rangers the striker wasted no time getting to grips with his new surroundings.

Garmson and Jack Pearlman levelled twice with Garmson then whacking the crossbar with parity restored only for the Ton Boys to be ousted from the FA Vase 3-2 at GNP Sports on Friday.

To rub salt into the wound, the winner came as a result of a controversial free-kick 10 minutes from time.

Littleton won the last home meeting with Pershore 2-0 in August 2017 thanks to goals from Lewis Clarke and Stu Hall. Town won the return 1-0 in February 2018.
