PERSHORE Rugby Club turned in their best attacking display of the season against Midlands Four West (South) table-toppers Upton.

They scored nine tries in a 55-24 success when playing a home game at Worcester for the second week in a row.

Pershore came out of the blocks at pace and mixed up their attacks to score early through fly-half Cam Bond.

The pressure continued with further tries from Gareth Richards, Stef Ellis and Bond.

With the bonus point in the bag after 25 minutes Pershore eased off and Upton got a well-worked try. But this sparked two more from Pershore’s Josh Hardiman and Greg Hitchcock to establish a 36-5 half-time lead.

Upton, with the strong wind at their backs, came back into the game in the second half with two early tries.

But Pershore hit back with two of their own through skipper Luke Hardiman and Dan Mayfield.

The last 10 minutes went from end-to-end and Upton earned a deserved bonus point with a fourth try.

But Pershore had the last laugh with a second for the versatile Josh Hardiman.

The win moved Pershore up to fifth in the table ahead of Saturday’s rearranged league trip to second-placed Old Wheatleyans.

Pershore Socials beat hosts Worcester thirds 26-22 with tries from Liam Charlton, Andy Jenkinson (2) and man of the match Jacob Smith.

Dave Snell added three conversions while Stef Staveley and debutant Adam Morgan both shone.

Meanwhile, third-from-bottom Evesham visit sixth-placed Leamington in Midlands Two West (South) on Saturday.
