Football round-up: Droitwich, Littleton and Bromyard win

FOUR first-half goals powered West Midlands League Division One leaders Droitwich Spa to a 4-2 home win over Gornal Colts.

Connor Collins bagged a brace before Alex Dugmore and Ben Tilbury also joined in.

Gornal’s two second-half goals were just a consolation.

The game was held at Bromsgrove Sporting’s Victoria Ground with Spa’s temporary home of Walshes Meadow in Stourport recovering from flooding.

Bromyard Town won 2-0 at Allscott Heath in Division One thanks to an own goal and Lewis Page’s effort.

Littleton stunned Premier Division leaders Shifnal Town with a 2-1 away win.

The visitors went ahead on 35 minutes as captain Ben Billingham curled a free-kick towards the far corner and it was headed in by a defender.

Littleton doubled the lead as Billingham turned onto his right foot before curling a wonder strike into the far corner.

With 15 minutes to go Shifnal turned the screw and forced keeper Toby Wilcox into several saves before Kyle Montague scored in injury-time.

But Littleton saw out an edgy final minute to inflict only Shifnal’s third league defeat this season.

Ninth-placed Littleton are set to host Worcester Raiders on Tuesday (7.45pm).
