LEADERS Welland romped to a 7-0 win at lowly Winchcombe Town Reserves in Cheltenham Association Football League Division Three.

But they had to make changes as, after already missing several players, left-back Jon Williams suffered a groin strain in the warm-up.

Welland started brightly and Stuart Wilkes’ fine run was only ended by a foul with Omar Elmougy dispatching the free-kick into the bottom corner.

Their second came as Ben Pearson and Wilkes combined for Tim Lewis to slide the ball past an on-rushing goalkeeper.

Ben Deakin whipped a cross over for Pearson to nod home before two neat finishes from Elmougy made it 5-0 at half-time.

The second-half was more even but Welland defended well.

Wilkes grabbed a deserved strike before Elmougy completed his four-goal haul late on.

Welland visit Brockworth Albion Reserves on Saturday.

Meanwhile, Upton Town drew 1-1 at home to Bishops Cleeve thirds in Division One with a goal from Luke Kitchen.

They host Kings on Saturday and entertain Whaddon United in the Senior Charity Cup next Wednesday.

Bottom-of-the-table Hanley Swan host Charlton Rovers on Saturday.
