After a wait of exactly six weeks since their last victory, Ledbury Town Reserves finally achieved a long-awaited win at New Street as they clinched a 2-1 win against mid-table rivals Kington Town Reserves.

David Butcher’s side had been plagued by misfortune over recent weeks and so a morale-boosting win against a side who beat them 5-2 away at Mill Street towards the end of September was an extremely welcome result.

First team forward Morgan Skidmore found the net after just twelve minutes of play to put put the hosts in front before Jack Gittoes equalized on the half-hour mark for the visitors.

But Jake Bramley won it for Ledbury with his first New Street goal and some heroics from man of the match for a second consecutive game Zak Bonfield ensured the three points.

Butcher was over the moon with the win his side have waited so long for:

“Finally, the lads got what they deserved after the last few results, really having something to show for all of their hard work.”

“The match against Kington was a good game of football, with both sides battling well. I do think we owe a lot to Zak however for keeping us in the running for the three points with some fine saves.”

“We have two games left both at home, and so hopefully we can now pick up six points from those.”

Despite the defeat, Kington retain a seven-point gap as well as a game in hand to keep Butcher’s young squad locked to a seventh place finish at best by the end of the season.
