BRETFORTON Old Boys suffered one of their heaviest defeats in recent years as they were beaten 7-0 by visitors Honeybourne Gate Inn in Birdseye Sports Evesham Sunday League Division One.

With Bretforton's players having celebrated their manager's wedding on the Saturday, they found the visitors wanting to do some celebrating of their own as goals from Matt Layton (2), Vinaschi (2), Tomes, James and Ward secured a memorable win.

Broadway United closed the gap at the top after coming from behind to defeat hosts Mickleton Rangers 6-1. Ellis gave Rangers an interval lead before Broadway struck back with six second half goals from Cooper (3), Evans, Jeffs and Horsburgh.

Pinvin United and visitors Eckington shared the spoils in a 1-1 draw as Bulford netted for Pinvin and McDonald struck for Eckington.

Evesham WMC reached the last eight of the Evesham Hospital Junior Cup with a 6-0 win at Defford/Besford United.

In Division Two Tesco United picked up valuable points with a 4-1 home victory over inconsistent Cider Mill as Williams, Steele, McCall and Holden found the net and Hands replied for Cider Mill.

Stour Excelsior won 4-3 at Lenches Lions in a thriller. Stour's goals came from Hince, Carr, Dunsbee and Pratt and Lenches registered through Unwin, Evans and Jordan.

Ambassador recorded a welcome win in Division Three as first half goals from Tenn and Cole were enough to defeat visitors Gardeners Arms, for whom Beasley scored, 2-1.

Pershore High Old Boys edged out visitors FC Fairfield 5-4 despite Liam Scrivens bagging a hat-trick for Fairfield. Critcher (2), Ridings, Sheen and Meigh scored for Old Boys.

Jason Beasley hit four goals in Campden/Ebrington United's 7-1 Division Four win over visitors Ambi Allsports.

Hosts Elmley Castle trounced Bengeworth 9-1 as the villagers scored through Smith (4), Cook (2), James, Badger and Smaylen.

Goals from Brookes and Tunnicliffe earned Stratford United a much-needed 2-1 win at Stour Excelsior Reserves, for whom Montgomery scored.

In the Evesham Hospital Sunday Minor Cup first round, holders WMK progressed 4-1 at the expense of hosts Fladbury Athletic, favourites Bear defeated visitors Tewkesbury Town 9-4 and Division Four promotion hopefuls Anchor Harriers and Dragons both fell to Division Two clubs as Cheltenham Saints and Bredon won 5-3 and 6-0 respectively.
