Bewdley Town v Malvern Town

Saturday, 8th Oct 2016

West Midlands (Regional) League Premier Division

Town welcomed fellow County side Malvern Town for the return league game looking to continue their good league form and progress up the league, but were beaten in game of 2 totally different halves.

The game began at a frantic pace with the home side looking the brighter, the 1st chance of the game came in the 15th minute, a corner by Seekings flicked on by Pountney to Wellings, he hit a smart half volley which Weaver in the visiting goal somehow saved. 3 minutes later and the visitors again had the keeper to thank, Ward played the ball through to Pountney, he used his strength to beat off the challenge from Whittall- Williams and bore down on goal with only the keeper to beat, Town's striker hit his shot early and Weaver got down well to push the ball wide of the post. The 33rd minute following a free kick Weaver was finally beaten by a Martin shot but the ball went wide with Pountney unable to get his foot to and turn it in.

Half time; Bewdley Town 0 Malvern Town 0

The 2nd half began with the home side unable to continue the pressing play they had enjoyed in the 1stn half and 13 minutes in found themselves a goal behind. The visitor's played some quick slick 1 touch football which ended up with Clavon latching onto a through ball and beating Steadman to put them 1-0 in front. Town had to wait until the 75th minute before they created anything like a chance, Pountney played a through ball to substitute Griffin but again with only the keeper to beat, Weaver saved the shot. The 79th minute saw the visitors increase their lead, Town lost the ball on half way to King, he played it on to Platt who then picked out Hayward who was unmarked, he ran on and beat Steadman from 10 yards. The 85th minute and any chance of Town getting back into the game were over, a corner by Platt was headed in past Steadman unchallenged by King.

Final score; Bewdley Town 0 Malvern Town 3
