BEN Miller scored twice as Ledbury Town scored five goals for the second consecutive league game on Tuesday night as they swept Hereford Pegasus Reserves aside 5-2.

Town moved to the top of the table with the win thanks to goals from Nathan Ince, James Febery and Sam Webb adding to Miller's brace. 

It followed the 5-1 thrashing of Ludlow on Saturday afternoon in which striker Tom Boyle was on fine form. 

First-half goals from Ben Febery and Miller, a second-half brace from Boyle and an excellent Alfie Regan finish rounded off an outstanding away performance for Ledbury. Only a late Ludlow consolation tarnished an otherwise flawless afternoon for Town.

Ledbury took the lead inside 12 minutes. Tom Boyle’s freekick from the left was met by Ben Febery, who powered his header past the Ludlow keeper.

Boyle and Regan combined to double Ledbury’s lead in the 24th minute. Regan burst down the right and clipped the ball to the far post to Boyle.

He cut inside to his right foot and played a beautifully weighted pass to Miller who arrived on the edge of the box and dispatched the ball accurately into the corner of the net.

Boyle should have had a hat-trick on the day but just before the break he had a penalty saved as the hosts kept themselves alive in the contest. 

But moments after the restart, Town were gifted their third goal. A long ball over the top from Ledbury keeper Alex Goode was completely misjudged by his opposite number who came rushing out of his area to clear and missed the bouncing ball, and Tom Boyle raced through to score into the empty net. 

Boyle then made it four when rounding the keeper and Regan finished things off 12 minutes from time, rifling home after substitute Kieran Loveridge played him through.

In a slight lapse in concentration, the clean sheet was denied as Ludlow managed to charge down a clearance kick from keeper Goode and tap into an empty net.

But it will act only as a slight frustration on an otherwise fantastic afternoon for Ledbury, who join Evesham United Reserves at the top of the table.
