SAUL Thomas scored twice in the second-half as Hereford Pegasus Reserves beat Ledbury Town in the final of the Herefordshire Charity Bowl on Wednesday evening.

Harvey Evans opened the scoring in the first-half for Pegasus before Thomas made it 2-0 with 20 minutes left.

Ledbury responded through ... immediately after the restart but Thomas got his second minutes later to retain the trophy.

Town had finished a place higher (second) than Pegasus in the Herefordshire FA County League Premier but were undone in the end by their opponents, who were the better side on the day.

Having finished runners-up in the league, a trophy would have been just reward for a Ledbury side who have impressed throughout the 2021/22 campaign.

But it was Hereford who dominated the opening 45 minutes and they opened the scoring after 26 minutes when Evans swept home following great work down the left by Jordan Williamson.

Pegasus had a couple of big chances to increase their advantage but Ledbury managed to get to half-time without any further damage being done.

Thomas showed why he has been part of the first team for Pegasus in the 69th minute as a brilliant strike doubled the lead.

But Ledbury managed to get themselves back in the game moments afterwards as ..... found the back of the net.

Hopes of a comeback were soon squashed, however, as Thomas made it 3-1 with ten minutes left on the clock.
