Worcester Vixens 0 vs Evesham Utd 1

The home side had a few half chances with the Evesham defence generally on top in a drab first half.
Evesham started to up their game at the start of the second half and within five minutes Sam Scully netted after being put clear. Further chances ...

Matt Sysum`s 85th minute penalty earned Evesham a replay against Chasetown in the Preliminary Round of the FA Trophy. The tie goes to a replay at the Jubilee Stadium on Tuesday night with a home fixture against Redditch United awaiting the winners in the First Qualifying
Round on Saturday 31st October. Paperwork from Forest Green Rovers to the Football Association granting loanee Louis McGrory permission to play in the game arrived late which meant the youngster could take no part but striker Lance Smith returned to the United starting line-up in place of winger George Washbourne.
The early exchanges came to an abrupt halt after only a ...

Evesham secured a replay after coming from behind to draw 1-1 at Chasetown this afternoon in the FA Trophy Preliminary Round.

Evesham United will make their second trip of the season to Chasetown with the pressure well and truly off, according to manager Paul Collicutt in the Gloucestershire Echo.
They were knocked out of the FA Cup at the preliminary round stage at the end of August and tomorrow they face the same opponents, at the same ground, in the FA Trophy on Saturday.
Chasetown, who compete in Division One South of the Evo-Stik Northern Premier League, are still in the Cup and Collicutt knows they are in for another stern examination at the Scholars Ground.
“What are the chances of drawing the same ...

Despite taking the lead, Evesham`s six-match unbeaten league run came to an end when Shortwood United triumphed 3-2 at Meadowbank on Tuesday night. It was a disappointing evening for the Robins who started the game in a play-off spot but lost out to a resolute and hardworking Shortwood side.
Defences dominated in a slow start to the game but that all changed on 20 minutes when United edged in front. Wood` defender Matt Bennett brought down Nick Stanley on the angle of the box and Sean Wood`s flighted free-kick deceived everyone and finished up in the back of Tom King`s net. Just past the half-hour mark, however, a Shortwood corner ...

Shortwood United hit back from a goal down to end Evesham United’s unbeaten away record in Southern League Division One South and West on Tuesday evening.
Nick Peare fouled Nick Stanley in the 21st minute, resulting in a yellow card for the Shortwood man. The free-kick was taken by Sean Wood and it curled past everyone and into the bottom right corner with a motionless Tom King seemingly unsighted.
Shortwood levelled when Marley Thomas’ cross was headed in by Liam Meredith in the 32nd minute and it remained 1-1 at the break.
Striker Lance Smith went on from the bench for Evesham in ...
