LEDBURY Town went level on points with Herefordshire County League Premier Division leaders Wellington following a 3-1 win over Gloucester City Reserves on Saturday.

Josh Burns scored twice and Ben Miller converted from the penalty spot, all in the first-half, as Ledbury continued to put the pressure on Wellington, who still have two games in hand over Ian Merrick's side.

Gloucester proved a more difficult nut to crack in the second-half but it mattered not for Ledbury, who remain in the title race alongside Wellington and New Dales Vale, who have three games in hand on Ledbury and one on Wellington.

Neither of Ledbury's title rivals were in action last weekend so it was imperative Ledbury did not slip up again. Elsewhere in the division, Kington Town won 2-0 at Ludlow Town Colts, Malvern Town Development drew 0-0 at Tenbury United and Holme Lacy edged past Worcester United, 2-1.

Ledbury are back in action this weekend when they make the trip to Kington Town. Wellington are also on their travels at Holme Lacy whilst Vale host Evesham United Reserves.

Away from the first team, it is a big afternoon for Ledbury Town Reserves on Saturday. They take on St. John's Howle Hill in the semi-final of the Ross Cup.

Entry is free for all wanting to attend with the club urging anyone to come along and support the Reserves as they seek to book a place in the final. The Guinness Six Nations matches will also be shown on the big screens in the clubhouse.
