Bewdley lifted the Worcestershire Infirmary Cup but set the nerves jangling along
On a warm summers day both teams started well but Bewdley soon took a hold of the
game, however, it was Malvern who had the best chance when the Bewdley defence was
left in tatters and with an open net in front of him the Malvern player put his shot
over the bar.
The deadlock was broken after 25 minutes when the Malvern defence gave Chris Hough
a sniff of goal and he duly thumped the ball into the back of the net. Five minutes
later Bewdley went further ahead when Liam Edwards dribbled through the Malvern defence
and calmly slotted the ball past the Malvern ‘keeper to make it 2-0.
Half time and Bewdley looked well on course to lift the trophy.
With nothing to lose, Malvern came out after the break determined to get themselves
back into the game and soon pulled a goal back. After 20 minutes of the half Luke
Towler restored Bewdley’s two goal advantage.
With the match looking safe Bewdley’s midfield engine room of Robbie Orme and Craig
Webb was replaced. Before their replacements could get into the game, Malvern pulled
another goal back. The tension was beginning to show and the game saw a few heated
Malvern drew level with a disputed goal, a spell of Malvern pressure saw the ball
find its way into the back of the Bewdley net, with the linesman flagging for an
infringement the referee consulted with him and then chose to ignore the flag and
awarded the goal.
With the match looking set to go to penalties, Bewdley won a last gasp corner, from
the kick the ball found its way to Chris Hough who broke Malvern hearts by thumping
it into the back of the net. Their was just time to restart the game and the ref
blew the final whistle, and Bewdley picked up their third trophy in three seasons.
