Yardley 0 Ludlow 9

WITHOUT three regular defenders for the visit of the league leaders, Yardley were always going to be up against it in this ENER-G West Midland League 2 fixture.

Ludlow attacked from the off and scored within the first minute of the game, and they nearly made it two almost immediately.

Yardley’s midfield was overwhelmed as Ludlow moved the ball quickly and took the chances that their superiority created and despite the best efforts from Neal Makepeace in the Yardley goal the visitors ended the first half leading 6-0.

The game opened up slightly in the second half due to Ludlow’s various substitutions but Yardley could not keep up their form of having scored two or more in each fixture so far.

Three more goals followed for Ludlow, with the only consolation for Yardley being keeping the score in single figures.
