BEN Billingham bagged a hat-trick as Littleton waltzed to a 5-0 victory at basement boys Wem Town in the West Midlands League Premier Division.

Will Skelton and Jimmy Ward got the other goals with the Ton Boys going up to fifth in the standings after bouncing back from two defeats.

The visitors quickly gained control and Adam Garmson's effort was tipped over by the keeper.

The impressive Garmson fired wide and man of the match Billingham's shot was saved.

Littleton went ahead on 14 minutes when Garmson pulled the ball back to Billingham who finished low in the corner.

Ten minutes later the lead was doubled as Billingham curled in a free-kick giving the keeper no chance.

After the half-hour mark Littleton lost Jourdain Masidi  to injury but this did not halt the momentum as Jack Pearlman headed over on 37 minutes.

Another Pearlman header set up the third goal as his effort was saved and Skelton composed himself to fire home the rebound.

Just before half-time Garmson again set up Billingham whose curling 20-yarder completed his hat-trick.

The second period continued in the same pattern as Littleton penned the hosts back and created chances.

Wing-back Aaron Xavier broke into the box bit and hit the post before Garmson fired the rebound just over from the edge of the box.

Another goal seemed inevitable but Wem stood strong thanks mainly to their goalkeeper.

Defender Karl Gardner headed over at the back post followed by Dean Fisher firing just wide.

Garmson was denied by an acrobatic double save as he searched for a deserved goal.

Substitute Lewis McPike fired wide and over while Fisher headed off target.

The fifth goal did come though as Garmson's shot was cleared off the line and substitute Ward tapped in the rebound.

Littleton host higher-ranked Lye Town in the Worcestershire FA Senior Cup on Wednesday before entertaining Smethwick Rangers in the league on Saturday (3pm).

Meanwhile, Pershore Town hit back from two goals down to draw 2-2 in the Premier Division in a reversed derby with Worcester Raiders at the Community Stadium.

Experienced hitman Ryan Rowe and ex-Worcester City captain Brad Birch put Raiders in the driving seat.

It had been a flat display from Pershore but there was a lifeline 10 minutes before half-time when Nick Seabourne halved the deficit.

And the match was level again on the stroke of half-time with Charlie Anagho-Ntamark bagging a second in as many matches since his international clearance came through.

He powered a header back towards where it came from and into the top corner.

Despite the goals and an open second half there was no further score with the draw seeing Pershore sit seventh after six league matches.

They host Shifnal Town on Saturday (3pm).
