City look to return to winning ways as Boldmere visit Claines Lane

Worcester Editorial 22nd Jan, 2022   0

WORCESTER City will be hoping to return to winning ways with the visit of top-three side Boldmere St Michaels to Claines Lane this afternoon (Saturday).

The Blue and Whites will bid to recapture their fine pre-Christmas form after losing for the first time since October when they fell to a 3-1 defeat away to AFC Wulfunians last weekend.

City, who were playing their first game in the Midland League Premier Division since December 18 and were without

Billy Shaw, completely dominated the first 25 minutes, after that it was the hosts who threatened most and thoroughly deserved their win.




City started off with several good moves which saw efforts from Archie Muirhead and Reiss Taylor-Randle and nearly took the lead in the 16th minute.

After forcing a corner, Taylor-Randle’s cross was met by Aaron Roberts on the back post, he had time to compose himself before unleashing a shot which was tipped onto the bar by keeper Tom Hayward.


The opening goal came from City’s third corner after 25 minutes. Again whipped in by Taylor-Randle, his cross was met by Wulfs’ Ty Knight whose header looped to the far post and into his own net to make it 1-0 to City.

Knight made amends within two minutes to level the scores before the Wulfs took a half-time lead as Aaron Bishop’s deflected shot left City keeper Adam Harrison stranded.

Thomas Poole wrapped up the points on 78 minutes and the defeat leaves City fifth in the table.
