United in hunt for league's first win
7:30am Thursday 12th September 2013 in Sport
EVESHAM United are still without a Calor Southern League Division One South and West win after a 3-1 loss at leaders Paulton Rovers.
The Robins sit just one place off the bottom after five games but there was little to choose between the two sides.
United dominated the firsthalf but went into the break behind to Mike Perrott’s header three minutes before half-time.
Beforehand, Marcus Palmer shot wide, keeper Kyle Phillips saved from Carl Brown and Linden Dovey missed an open goal.
United were made to pay when Brandon Barnes added a second goal on 62 minutes.
Brown pulled one back from Mitchell Botfield’s corner before defender James Loney was sent off for two yellow cards. United’s 10 men pressed but were caught on the break in injury-time by substitute Josh Klein-Davies.
- Pershore Town are through to the FA Vase second qualifying round after beating Wellington 2-1 thanks to a Louis Bridges brace.
Bridges bagged a fourthminute opener and an 80thminute winner after good work from Mark Owen.
Wellington equalised on the hour mark. Pershore, missing six players, should have won by half-time but missed several good chances.
They visit Earlswood Town in the next round a week on Saturday and lost 3-1 at home to them in a league dress rehearsal on Tuesday.
Louis Bridges, Owen and Duncan Edwards scored in last week’s 5-3 Midland Combination Premier Division defeat to Southam.
Pershore host Nuneaton Griff on Saturday (3pm).
