Ben Tyler 4th Apr, 2019

BROMSGROVE Sporting Colts had a lot to celebrate over the course of a packed weekend of action for its junior sides.

The under-8s Whites won the Spring Cup, whilst league champions under-18s Shamrocks reached the final of the Presidents Shield – their second final of the season.

The Colts’ under-8s White won a three-team round-robin to lift the trophy, after beating Rubery Juniors 3-0, and Kings Heath Concorde 2-0.

Tyler Ruben hit a brace, whilst Lewis Fisher added the other against Rubery in the opener.

In the second game, Ethan Bagnell performed heroics to keep out a penalty from Concorde after a handball, prompting his team-mates Fisher and Rio Walters to score the decisive goals that won the tournament for Colts.

Over in the Presidents Shield semi-final, the under-18 Shamrocks stunned Holly Lane United 5-0 after a fantastic team performance ensured Bromsgrove controlled the tie.

Jake Marsden saved the seventh penalty in a row that he has faced, in the midst of Matty McFall, Connor Ruston, Chris Geraghty and Patrick Doherty with two getting in on the goal rush.

On Saturday in the Worcestershire FA Tournament, Colts under-6s won four, and drew the other, with Jacob Melbourne hitting five goals to be named the joint player of the tournament, alongside Ted Roche.

Meanwhile, Bromsgrove under-7s Greens drew three of their games and lost the other in the same tournament, but warranted better results for their excellent play.

Over in the Midland Junior Premier League, Colts under-15 Reds saw off Solihull Moors thanks to Zak Bennett and Joe Wykes strikes, whilst the U16 Reds drew two all with Continental Star Colts, with Alex Quaynor scoring both goals.

In the final action on Saturday, Colts under 16 Sirens saw off Coventry Girls 2-0 in the Central Warwickshire Girls Football League, as they finally won their first game of the season in their last fixture.

Coventry were second in the league prior to the game, but Paris Pickering and Charlotte Lane found the net to win it for the Sirens.

The U17 girls had even better luck against Sutton United – condemning the hosts to a 6-1 thrashing and moving back to the top of the league in the process.

On Sunday, in the Central Warwickshire Youth Football League, Bromsgrove’s development sides won two of the five games played across the under-7s to under-10s age groups,

Bromsgrove Sporting Colts under-11s were on the wrong end of a 6-1 scoreline against Bourneville Warriors in the Spring Cup, with Olly White scoring the Colts consolation.
