LEDBURY bounced back from their opening-day horror show with a stunning home display.

The Ross Road outfit were thrashed 52-17 at Shipston on Stour on the first weekend of the Midlands Three West (South) season.

But they came back firing last Saturday as they stormed to a 52-12 victory over Stoke Old Boys at Ross Road.

There were two tries apiece from Arron Almond and Matt Hallett.

Harry Porter, Jamie Rayfield, Tom Assal and George Bennion also crossed the whitewash.

Chairman Roger Bateson said: “We have a number of new players welcomed to the squad this year so it is just a case - we hope - of them bedding in and gelling as a team.”

Ledbury will now look to back that bumper win up on Saturday when they visit Upton (3pm).
